I am installing XPx64 on an Asus K8N mobo. when i apply the drivers for this mobo the NIC communication light goes out. Before i installed the drviers i was able to see the lights flicker on the NIC. so it sounds like its an issue with the drivers but i do not know why. I can see the local area connection under my connections. ive tried the Nvidia drivers and the Asus drivers. both reflect the same problem. any ideas as to why this is happening?
