So I installed windows and everything, came to internet, and it doesnt work, I tried every single thing I know and used to do, from shutting off the Router and Moderm(and waiting for a minute) to going around playing around in Network settings connections options, and stuff. It still says no connection...why is this? The rear I/O panel where the ethernet cable is, its light up orange(not green)...Can someone tell me what to do? (Windows XP Pro 64x) Hell I tried going into BIOS :/ didnt see anything that would affect internet connection.

I called up Microsoft(to activate windows since no internet), then asked for tech support...60$ hell no, I'f rather get help from you guys or spend the next few days changing every single option in the computer I can.

Well.....it might not be your OS that is messing up your internet. I think its your IP and IP gateway. I don't know how to fix or change that so I can't give you any detailed instructions on how to fix your problem. Try tinkering with your IP settings. If that doesn't help then contact your computers manufacturer. If they can't help contact your MOBO manufacturer. If your using an add on card then contact your addon cards manufacturer. It might also be a problem with your router. I don't usually deal with routers or anything software. Contact them as well and see if they can help you. What internet browser are you using (not sure if that affects anything)?

The BEST thing to do then it just contacting Asus(Motherboard) Since its a custom built, and thus Im the manufacturer :P Its not the router though, I alreayd have two computers on the network, all I did is switch out one of the computers temporarily just to download updates :/

Thats the best thing that you can do. They might be able to help but I dunno. But since you stated that it was the Ethernet connection that was messing up it might be your MOBO. If you can download a new BIOS for you MOBO that might help.

You may need to go to the ASUS website to get newer drivers for you network connection.

Just out of curiosity have you tried to do an IP configuration in the command prompt? You can also try pinging the loopback address (127.0.0.1) to see if your network card is actually working.

I'm thinking that the problem is that rather then you picking up an IP from your ISP your computer is assigning a private IP address for some reason.

You said you have tried turning off the router/modem. Have you actually tried unplugging it? I have no idea what your problem is, but I know unplugging my router and then starting everything over again usually helps...

No it isnt the router/modem, sorry for the miscommunication, I DID unplug both for a minute then plug back in. The LAN is lighting up orange which makes me think its the onboard LAN Card...Its prolly not broken and a problem like Lord Anubis says...

Ill try to figure out how to do what you have explained Lord :P so I might be lost for a while.(so please explain more, im not good with Networks/IT lol)

Click Start > Run > then type cmd and hit enter. That'll bring up the command prompt. From there type ipconfig/all and hit enter again. You just want to make sure that the IP address your getting is from your ISP and not a private one generated by your PC.

At the moment the beginning octets that determine if its a private address are eluding me so I can't post them here.
