Hi all. I have a problem with my internet connection. Here are my specs for my computer:

ASUS P5Q Pro Mobo
2x2GB Corsair RAM
Powercolor Radeon HD 4850
E5200 Core 2 Duo
WD 320GB HD
LG IDE DvD Writer

This build is very recent. After I had assembled all the parts, everything worked fine except the Ethernet card. So I check online to troubleshoot and found that alot of people were having similar problems to mine. After i couldn't get it working, I bought a new Network/Ethernet Card (Realtek RTL8139). I put it in the PCI slot, plugged int he cable, booted computer. Internet didn't work.

I have a TREDNET TEW432BRP model Router, as I have 3 computer at home sharing internet. My ISP is cogeco and they have provided me with a modem (RCA DHG525). Here is what really intrigues me: If my internet wire is plugged in to my computer through the router, it doesn't work. BUT, if it is connected DIRECTLY, then internet works. :thumbsup:

Any ideas on what the problem could be!?? :flowers:

I have the Realtek also, did you get the driver for it? If not go on the Realtek site and down load it, it is not a plug & play card!

Have you tried a different port on the router?

One that you know works properly?

Thanks for your replies. First, I have installed the latest driver (5.7.1.9) from realtek website. Second, I tried different ports. Still no internet. :thumbsup: I did find something on another website that said to open CMD and type: ping 127.0.0.1. I did this and it responded.

Realtek Ethernet PCI cards are plug n play. Windows XP auto installs drivers for them.

Did you connect cable from modem to WAN port of router, then cable from any LAN port from router to ethernet Card?
Open Start Menu > Run and type cmd and press Enter. In the command prompt window, Try giving this command : ipconfig /all and post what you get here.
