    can we see a screen shot of device manager

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {Device Manager}
    Post back the results in device manager
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
    Start > control Panel {Vista set to classic view}> system > {Vista, device manager on left hand side} {XP hardware Tab, device manager button} >
    windows 7
    start > control panel> System and Security> Device Manager

    network adaptors, click on the + > post back the devices listed there
    are there any ! ? or X


    post a screen shot of the device manager - network adapters

    To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.

    you have a number of devices that need drivers

    so post back the windows version you have XP, Vista, windows7
    from the screen shot it looks like XP

    make and model of the PC - if a dell also the service TAG number on the machine - we can then goto the manufacturers website and download the drivers

    have you recently reinstalled XP ?
