To help everyone know this is not a hardware issue, I have Kubuntu, recent version out right now, installed on the computer along with Windows XP. Kubuntu connects with no issue.
On XP, I can not connect to the network. I have uninstalled the drivers, with the motherboard CD. (EVGA X58 sli). restarted, and the computer detect a new device. I used the disc to reinstall the drivers, no luck even after restart.

I flipped back and forth from XP and Kubuntu thinking it was a fluck for Kubuntu, but only Kubuntu connects.
I am using my laptop right now for internet while I attempt to find a fix.

What service pack of XP are you using? Also, have you checked your TCP/IP setting and such?

I've done what the link said and nothing new shows up.
I have noticed something.
When I'm on Kubuntu, the light on my router shows orange, and other devices show green. Flipping cables and connection ports, my computer still shows orange on kubuntu, and a steady green blink on XP.
I am now assuming it is the onboard netcard has gone bad. any suggestions before I go out and buy a new card?

SP3, I installed all updates and drives when I put the computer together about a month ago.
Only thing I know isn't default is the DNS set to the OpenDns I had before I had issues. Everything is default right now.

edit:
Set the card to 10mps on XP and now working and shows orange on the router.
So now I know there is a hardware issue. anyone willing to explain? I'm quite interested what component fried.

Hi Liger,

I don't think it's a hardware problem. I think it's an XP SP3 problem. I had an issue with an error message saying a network cable is unplugged after installing SP3 on my XP machine. The only answer microsoft gave was to set the speed to 10mbs/100. That was it.

Thanks for the tip! I recently noticed my computer show's green on the router when I'm in kubuntu.
All I can say now is, Microsoft done it again.
