I am working on a friend's HP Pavilion A320N and I need to connect to the Internet to download various files...

I have a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router WRT54GS with 2 desktops (hardwired) and 2 laptops (wireless) that are used with this router on a daily basis...

I attempted to connect this HP up to it and I am unable to ping the router - 192.168.1.1

I have tested out the cable and all else works fine, have uninstalled and reinstalled the NVIDIA nForce MCP Networking Controller and TCP/IP...

The loopback ping to 127.0.0.1 (localhost) and ping of itself works fine - The green light for the ethernet port is on steady green and the yellow light flickers...Under Statistics, it shows sent packets, but no received packets...

When I disconnect the ethernet cable, it promptly reports that the "Network Cable is Unplugged"...

Under Device Manager, there are no issues with the NVIDIA Controller...

Have also reset the Cable Modem and Router to no avail...

Don't know where to go from here???

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated...

Mike...

Well...Since this controller is integrated into the motherboard, the only thing I can think to do is disable it and install a new nic card...
