ICS connection problems

  1. Hello everybody, i have purchased a ps2 network adapter a while back and set up a small home/office connection so that my ps2 could access the internet through a cross over cable in order for me to be able to play online games. This was successful and it worked perfectly with no problems. Then my pc got a virus which resulted in me having to reboot and wipe everything off my pc (MESH XP HOME EDITION). After rebooting my pc and loading everything back on i tried to remake the small home/office ICS connection using the windows networking wizard, this failed saying that a problem occured during configuration(at this point my internet was up and running and everything was going well). I tried MESH helpline but as usual they were no help at all, i tried sony but they couldnt help, i tried BT broadband elp...NO HELP. I went on device manager and noticed that my network adapters were working. In other devices in device manager it showed ethernet controls with a question mark next to them and asked if i wanted to install, HOW CAN I INSTALL THEM I HAVE NO CD OR SOFTWARE I KNOW OF. im sorry if it isnt in all technical terms but im still fairly new at this, i hope this is enough information for you to be able to help. Hope to se a response soon,

    Jack Wood.

    I had a look at my firewall settings and they were fine,its my ethernet controls which have been disabled, i checked this on device manager. Mess did get round to contacting me and sent me some software unfortunatly it says when i try to install it, "this application cannot be used on a ms-dos..." or something like that. Do you have any ideas on how i can allow it to be accepted?
    Thank you for your replies.

    yes,i use windows xp,mesh sent me 2 pieces of software i can use, "VIA 4IN1 & BCM4SBXP", Mesh instructed me to install VIA 4IN1 using the windows install wizard, a window then pops up saying, "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Chose 'close' to terminate the application." It then gives me an option of 'close' and 'ignore', i have tried both of these but end up with the window closing and no progress. I hope this is what you were asking for, thank you for your response and assistance.

    Travel to MS's site and do a search on repairing/replacing your autoexec.nt file.
    It's possible the virus you had effected this file.
    After you repair it remove the VIA 4 in 1 drivers in Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager...
    Do a clean boot and re-install those drivers.

    patio. :cool:
