I just installed my fresh copy of XP, because I was having too many troubles with Vista, but now.. I have no internet. I go to the network connections thing in the control panel and all that, but nothing. I've installed the Ethernet Driver for my motherboard (Epox 9NPAJ SLi), and nothing seems to be working. I have both wireless and ethernet, and my wireless is an Atheros PCI wireless card.

If anyone has any solutions, please help me out, this is very annoying.
I also have a wireless D-Link DI-524 router if that changes anything.

Have you installed all of the other drivers for your motherboard/chipset (and the rest of the system)? In particular, the motherboard/chipset drivers will affect your network card.

Check the Device Manager to ensure that you have properly installed the drivers for all hardware devices as required.

| Start >> right-click My Computer >> Manage >> Device Manager |


| Start >> Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Computer Management >> Device Manager |

Once you have selected the Device Manager node of the Computer Management console, you'll want to scan for hardware changes. In the right hand pane of the Device Manager node, highlight the icon for the Local Machine which is at the top of the hardware tree. Right-click the Local Machine icon and select Scan for hardware changes.

Any devices for which the drivers are not installed should appear after running the scan; they will show up with a yellow circle containing a white question mark (?). You will probably find that there is at least one device for which the drivers have not been installed or installed properly.

Find your drivers and utilities CD-ROM and install the drivers as prescribed or as necessary. If you do not have a drivers and utilities CD-ROM, consult the manufacturer's website and look up the drivers for your machine model - from another computer of course. Download all the latest drivers and burn them to a CD-RW to make yourself a custom drivers and utilities CD-ROM - save it and don't lose it, in case you have to reinstall again.
