I have an ethernet card. how do i know if this is working? how do i check it? can you ping your own ethernet card?
thanks.

does the card have an IP address assigned to it, in which case you can do
ping ip.address

also in WinXP go to the Control Panel and then Network and View Connections, it should then list all the network connections availible on your machine

ping 127.0.0.1

if it replys it will tell you if your ethernet card is working or not
Pinging the local loopback (127.0.0.1) will tell you of the PROTOCOLS are functioning properly on the computer...not the physical card. Pinging your own IP address will tell you if the card is functioning properly.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
