Hi, got a pc from a friend becuase my mobo on-board graphics went. tried to connect to internet which it couldnt.
Local area connection - cable unpluged - so checked cable and tried in laptop from router, which worked, tried straight from the broadband modem itself, worked on laptop not in pc.
Nic light on, which suggests that its working.
tried ipcongfig and i got 0.0.0.0 for ip address and subnet mask.
After trwling the internet for answers tried winsockfix, which does nothing, this is what my ipconfig /all say:

Not seeing anything wrong in device manager doesn't necessarily mean you have the correct driver, it just means that windows can't see any problems (This is often the case when windows installs some generic driver from its own database) - have you attempted to install the latest driver from Abit's website? (Making sure all traces of the old drivers are gone before you install the new one)

Edit : You should also check the speed & duplex settings in the NIC's Advanced properties are set to Autonegotiate
