Hi guys, I outdid myself when I reformatted my computer. I was running Windows XP Media Center edition, and because some antivirus and spyware removal programs tore up my computer, I decided to reformat. I reformatted with Windows XP Home Edition using NTFS.
My LAN is not seen by my computer, and obviously I can't connect to it or surf the web.
-I used my XP CD to install network drivers, and in my device manager, my IEEE bust host controller and net adapter (1394) have drivers
-My SM Bus controller does not have a driver.
-I have Time Warner cable, and my modem plugs into my microsoft MN-700 router.
-All 3 other computers on my network can connect to the lan and the internet.
-I tried resetting my router, didn't fix it. It is not encrypted or password protected.
-Yes, my ethernet cable is plugged in at both the router and computer.
Can anyone help me to get my computer to see and connect to the LAN?
