So I reformatted my desktop today (it's been screaming for one for a while now), but now I can't connect to the internet. I've never had problems like this before when reformatting. I tried to use cmd>ipconfig, but all it returns is "Windows IP Configuration", and nothing else. I called my ISP and they seem to think that I need some drivers of some sort, but have no idea what type or where to find them. Can anyone help me figure this out?

System:
Microsoft Windows XP
Professional
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

Computer:
AMD Athlon 64 Processor
3700+
2.21 GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM

It is self made, but I can't recall the mobo manufacturer. Is there some way for me to find out without needing the box?

You should have gotten at least one CD with it. That should have all the necessary drivers that are not native to XP. Other wise you can pull the side panel off of the case. The make and model should be marked on it.

Will do; it's quite late now and I don't want to disturb my roommates, so I'll do this tomorrow and post my results. Thanks for your help so far.

Not a problem. While I will be away most of the day with a Clients house call someone else may step in to help.

I`ll check back in when I get home.
