Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

No Local Connection Icon / No broadband connection

\015 I am trying to set up a Epox MF-4 Ultra motherboard Network Adaptor up with my broadband O2 connection., on a new build machine. The broadband is definetly OK as it runs on my laptop and has done for over three months with no problems. When I run the O2 Cd install disc it does a compatability test and fails on the network adaptor section. On checking the network connections I can see the 1394 network adaptor as connected and working OK but I can not see a local connection icon for a network connection. I have re-installed the realtek driver and another alternate driver to no avail, still fails the compat. test. I have checked all the sugggested methods in the Microsoft article KB825826 to recover / restore this icon and still no joy.\302\240\302\240 Am now at a loss as to what to try next, I will try another Network card in the machine, but would like to know why the adaptor does not appear to work on the m/board. Any suggestions as to how to get it to work, or if anyone has had the same problem, and the solution to their problem would help. Thanks for any assistance that might be forthcoming.

Answers :

Have you checked the Device Manager to see if the Ethernet adapter is even listed, or if it is does it have a warning symbol on it for Ethernet Controller? Use Windows Help to get to Device manager if you are not sure how to. It could be that your Ethernet Controller (Local Area Connection) is disabled in your BIOS as well. Look there to see if it is, or Load Defaults option in BIOS and Save Changes, as that will enable the Ethernet Controller by default if it is working.
The 1394 adapter if your firewire adapter and not your network card. What you'll need to do is to go into control panel .. and setup a network. Once you've setup your network .. you can select to show the connection icon on the taskbar. If you need further help let me know.
