    I am running XP home, with a surfboard cable modem.I use a ethernet cable to connect. My problem is I bought a new pc and It has XP home also + SP1. My comfigs are the same I think, but it dosen't go anyware. Could it be a problem with a link to my cable modem to the MAC address of my NIC card. I am stuck till I call cable. Any ideas.

    I think the MAC adress of the new Network Card has to be registered with your cable provider.
    Give them a call and they'll explain/guide you thru findin the MAC adress of your new card :cool:
