Okay, I have an ethernet cable that runs to my computer, through my house and all that, and I've tested it on 2 different laptops, and it works, but the problem is that my DESKTOP doesn't even have an option to connect with a Local Area Connection, like I have on my other computers. The wireless option is there, because I have a card, but I just recently moved my computer and is now too far to get decent reception, and I just plain hate wireless because it's so unreliable.
I've tried using "create a new connection" and all that junk, I've created new partitions and installed my other XP's, I've installed all the (seemingly) right drivers, but nothing is working. I've spent the past week with no internet, trying to fix that, and it's very difficult being a student and not having internet haha

I have an EPoX 9NPAJ SLI if that means anything, or if anyone knows of some weird third-party way to create a LAN connection to get to my router, that'd be a awesome. I have a DLINK-524, also.

Thanks

I would have suggested the drivers, since I think that may have been my problem at one time.

Do you have any encyption enabled on the router?

Can you make sure the card didn't get knocked loose while you were moving it or something? If not, you might just have to move it back...

Have you looked into a Wireless Range Extender?

EPoX 9NPAJ SLI

LAN:
1Gb Ethernet from onboard Vitesse VSCS8201 Gigabit Ethernet PHY.


turn it on in bios or enable it in device manager

to fix something like this you have to disable all other connection option, firewire, wireless, dialup etc

uninstall the ethernet from device manager and reboot

check the computer on a short cable closer to make sure the longer cable isn't bad
