    Good morning all. I have a home network of 3 computers that connect to each other and the internet using a ADSL modem/router. I just upgraded one of the computers from Windows Me to Windows XP Home and now cannot get onto the internet from that computer -- no problems from the others. I have verified that the network is operating on that computer. I do not need to log in to the broadband connection -- that is done through the modem/router. I do not have any firewalls up on that computer. (I use ZA but have not activated it yet on that machine and I turned the XP firewall off.)

    I usually can see the modem/router from each computer by typing its IP address but cannot even see that from the newly upgraded one.

    I must be doing something basic wrong, but I cannot figure out what it is. Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    Ben

    If it's an onboard network interface, make sure it is enabled in BIOS.

    No it's not. I added the network card myself.

    Thanks.

    You might ask a mod to move this thread to Networking. You will probably get more help there. :)
