Hi, just reinstalled Windows XP and formatted the hard drive, but now for some reason I can't connect to the internet. I'm using a Netgear router via ethernet connection.

In device manager, there is a yellow question mark next to 'ethernet controller', does this have anything to do with it?

To create a connection is the best way through 'network connections', 'create a connection', but then what? Do I need to create a local area connection or something?

It looks like you've simply installed Windows and not installed the device drivers for your system.

If your computer came with a CD containing system drivers, make sure you install it from there.
