New build: -------------- CPU: AMD Quad core Phenom II X4920 mobo: MSI 785GTM-E45 (No slots used, all onboard functions) HDD: Seagate SATA 1T ST310000520AS XP Pro 64 bit 4GB RAM In the network config wizard, it gets to the end and says, "Can't find hardware" (no IP # returned, nothing but that brief message) The ethernet cable is plugged into the ethernet jack and the jack light is glowing green. In the shell, ipconfig /all yields: "Windows IP configuration" Pinging the gateway yields: "Destination Host Unreachable" for all 4 tries. Ran Ubuntu virtual desktop and it connects immediately to the internet, so no hardware problems. I am probably overlooking something very obvious, but it has been years since I ran into a problem like this. What am I missing? TIA.
