Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Network Connections are Gone!

\015 After I installed some windows updates, the internet stopped working on my desktop. I went to network connections and all the connections are gone except for a PCI wireless adaptor (which cannot connect to the internet either). What I want to connect through though, is the RJ45 ethernet port. It's part of the motherboard MSI P965 Platinum Intel. I've tried a few things to bring back my network connections but so far nothing has worked. Please help. :)\015\012\015\012\015\012+ It's a computer I built myself so I couldn't find it's placement in the product category, but I have the MSI utility disk as well as Windows XP Pro disk.\015

Answers :

Reinstall the LAN card driver. If you know the brand and model and you don't have the driver, go to the manufacturer's WEB site to download the XP driver version of the LAN card.
\015\012Then check Network Connection to see if it installed properly.
I would check in device manager (control panel) and see if the network card is listed. It probably has a yellow exclamation point next to it.
\015\012If there is an exclamation point there, then right click the card and click uninstall.
\015\012 Next, using your wifi to access the internet, download the latest network card driver from the PC vendor website / Motherboard vendor site / discrete network card site.
\015\012Install the network card driver and you should be back in business.
