Please can any body help me !
I have been pulling my hair out for the last 3 months !

I started off with a MOBO that would not connect onto the internet or was just bringing a web page up after about 2 mins! i checked the connection on my laptop and it was fine, i then got NTL to ping my mobo and they said their was an intermitant fault. I firstly suspected drivers or software as the usb port was working fine,and the fault was the same with the RJ45, so i formatted the hard drive and installed a fresh copy of winxp pro, but still no internet. so i got a brand new motherboard bundle and to my dissmay, same problem! after 3 mobo's later it was proven not to be hardware!
i then decided for a laugh to install win 98 on the first mobo, it worked first time on the internet! so i formatted the hard drive again,put XPpro back on and guess what it works!! but still my new mobo wont work, iv'e tryed every thing i can think of and this is the 3rd brand new mobo, someone please help me!!!!!!!!!

new motherboard model no-667M04-G-6L is FOXCON,
Motherboard Bundle - Intel Cerleron D 2.8GHz 800FSB, 256MB 400Mhz DDR

I'm sure someone around here can help you figure this out. Can you provide details of the three MB's and also which operating system works with which one. The brand and model numbers are important. Also details on the CPU and Ram. Do you connect to the internet with USB or Ethernet card?

After you installed XP did you install the drivers from the motherboard CD next?

I found the Foxconn motherboard site but they don't list that model number.

yes i installed the motherboard drivers and all devices are working fine, i dont think the problem is with the mobo.

i have had 3 of these brand new motherboards and the fault is the same using an external usb network card and also through the internal network card using the RJ45, i don't think the fault is with the mother board it is something in XP because i had the same fault with another computer running XP and installing Win 98 fixed the problem,

regards, Paul.

Cheer's Leurgy,

after trying many options your suggestion seems logical, although the fault is this the same using the RJ45 and i have installed the motherboard drivers for both network and usb ports, it definately seems like a driver conflict somewhere, i havn't put SP2 on yet so wonder what that will do!!

cheers, Paul67

It certainly would be a good idea to install SP2. Apparently there are some USB fixes in there. Are you showing any conflicts in Device Manager?
