    Hi, I am new to the site. Hope you can help me with this problem.

    I have a Toshiba lap top with pre installed Vista with a vista recovery disc.
    I installed XP professional, having previously downloaded the XP drivers from the toshiba website. I've installed all of the drivers or most of them, the essential ones. Everything works cool, except I cant connect to the internet, adsl with router ethernet. The toshiba modem is installed, I double checked, the Intel lan wireless and net adapter also. I still cant connect.

    What I noticed is in the network connections Instead of the usual local area conection now it sais 1394 connection, enabled, 1394 net adapter.

    This is the notebook information if its of any use:

    Toshiba Satellite A100 PSAARA

    and the drivers that I downloaded:

    Notebook>Satellite>A100>PSAARC a previous version of PSAARA since the former doesnt have xp drivers.

    If the only thing that appears in Network Adapters is 1394 connection, you don't have the correct drivers installed for either the wireless or wired Ethernet adapters. You need to fix that before you'll connect to anything.

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:


    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
