I have just aquired a desktop computer,

I want to connect it to the internet thro. my home network,

I noticed it had a standard dial up modem installed, which was no good to me because i have a broadband connection.

So i removed it and fitted a Ethernet Card, which i removed from a working machine.

It installed ok, and i chked the device manager and was working properly.

But i went to Network Connections and the Local Connection wasnt there , infact NO connection was showing.

So i decided to make a connection, I clicked on the Make New Connection and the wizard didnt show, the egg timer was there briefly as tho something was going to happen but nothing happened.

I can now make NO connection..!!

My O.S. is XP PRO. SP1

Please......!! Any Ideas..??
