    When U installed the Driver, did you also install the NVidia Firewall {it comes as part of the Driver, but you have the option of installing it}.

    Also, what Security are you using ?

    Can you PING the Router?

    START/RUN/ type CMD and type PING ip add of router

    Looking at it again - the default gateway... thats an unusual IP for a router, generally , , ...

    thanks for help, ive tried to ping the router but with no succsess. im planing on wiring my lan cable again as it has been there for some years now, and may be damaged. i noticed that the gateway ip was odd as the other two pc have different one more like the one's you stated. typed the same gateway and submask as other pc in the house but once again no succsess. as far as i know i installed all the drivers but have now lost cd.
    unlike other treads ive read on this proplem i have also have full mbps if that helps :D

    Full mbps don't matter if you have some connection, but don't receive the packets.

    Are you able to re-configures the network card ( Auto-duplex) and forces it to repair the connection?

    u might try to borrow someones copy of windows xp pro to repair windows as it should not have to be activated again and any xp pro will be the same.
