    I just installed XP Pro 64x on a new build. When I try to access the
    internet, I get a "cannot find server" message. When I switch it back to my
    old computer, I have access. Windows went through the internet wizard and I
    tried three versions of set up, and still can not get connected. Any
    suggestions?

    New build
    clean install of Windows Xp Pro 64x
    MOBO Gigabyte GA P35-DS3L P35+ICH9
    Broadband, no password needed, on LAN.

    Thanks

  2. It sounds like you need an NIC driver. What do you see in Device Manager
    under Network Adaptors? Is there a yellow bang on the device?

    Under the drivers, the Ethernet is has a big yellow question mark. I also
    failed to load the CD for the motherboard drivers and chipset. After they
    are loaded, I will try the internet again.

    Thanks

    The yellow question mark is now gone, but I still can not connect. I hade a
    problem installing the chipsets drivers. Ethernet showed installed, by I
    repaired it. The connections is not found. Network connections test finds
    it and it passes.

    It now works. I unplugged the power for 30 minutes while I rearranged my
    work area. When I plugged it back in it worked. Previously, I unplugged the
    power for 2 minute with no access.

    Thanks to all.
