Thanks for yours,
Wired, no wireless on this compurter
Dev Mgr shows yellow qustion mark in front of each of "Other Devices" and "ATM Network Manager" (under Other Devices). Clicking on Properties, the General tab shows:
"The Drivers for this device are not installed (Code 28)
To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Drivers"
I clicked and of course it could not find the drivers. How do I go about determining which drivers are needed and how to find them?
Are the drivers for the NIC or the OS? Not sure what the "ATM Network Manager" is. Can you help me?
".. you can ping the gateway but can ping yourself.." I trust this should have been " you canNOT ping the gateway but can ping yourself"?
I had already turned on automatic ip settings and then done an ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew. It always returns a 169.x.y.z for my computer unless I manually put in a 192. address for this computer and the gateway. Even when the gateway shows correctly in ipconfig, it times out when I try to ping the gateway.
Since I have a steady yellow light and I can ping myself, I think that the hardware is OK, so it is either a config issue, missing driver, or cabling. I tend to rule out the latter because I can unplug the ethernet cable from another adjacent computer (which connects perfectly) and plug it into the problem computer but cannot connect. Also I question how the computer can ping itself if it is a missing driver. So config? Where?
