Rock,
"Can you smell what I am cookin?"
Anyway, check your network and see if you are recieving you IP via DHCP.

sit one: If DHCP, do nothing just plug in the new machine and surf.

sit two: If not DHCP, copy all your settings for you nic. IP, SUBNET, Default Gateway, DNS. Put these in your new machine and surf.

If its DSL you may use PPPoE. If you have to log on to use your DSL, you have PPPoE. Make sure you have a copy of your ISPs connection program

If it's PPPoE DSL, you should be all good. The only trip in the whole process would be having to call your DSL/Cable provider and register the MAC address of the NIC in the new computer (assuming you're plugging the connection there instead of your old box). I usually bypass this by just using a PCI NIC to connect to the 'net and move that to my primary box of the day. Otherwise, I use the onboard NIC or a 2nd PCI NIC to go to a hub and plug other boxen there. Now if only I a KVM to make this stuff easier...

I was using the latest (23.83??) downloaded from nvidia, but I rolled back to 22.5 because I've been having some issues, but I determined last night the issues are with my scsi controller, not my video card. Oh, and I'm using xp pro.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
