Hello all. I have a problem with my ethernet port on my workstation. The computer crashed so i reformatted it with a fresh install of WinXp Pro. Here are the system specs: Symantec Endpoint Protection Windows Firewall Service Pack 3 Network User - Logged on as Administrator on Network Domain Internet comes from modem to 16 port switch to workstation. all other stations work fine (even with SP3) 2.4 Core 2 Duo 2 gb ram Asus P5945GC mobo Before, the internet was working before I reformatted it. Now I cant connect to internet, network or anything else. The network cable is unplugged icon is on at the bottom right corner of the screen. I have tried numerous versions of the ethernet driver, and nothing helps. I have tried setting up a manual connection for broadband connection and nothing works. i am assuming it is a software problem, because nothing physically happened to the ethernet plug or port. I even tried plugging in a different ethernet cable into the pc and still nothing. I am thinking it might have somthing to do with SP3 or some kind of setting not allowing it to be used. I checked Device Manager, it is working properly and enabled. Im stumpted, if anyone can help, I would appreciate it.
