Well, I wiped the drive on my Windows ME Computer and now the internet doesn't work. I ran Spybot Search & Destroy and Hijack This but nothing incriminating. It's also not the card itself because I have tried multiple cards. I'm just plain confused to why it's not working =/. The lights blink on the ethernet card but the internet won't work. I'm behind a hub if that's any worth, and all the other computers on the hub work fine.
Thanks in advance :). Oh, also, the sound doesn't work either =/.

dumb question but...are you familiar with drivers? You say you formated, and your sound card doesn't work. Your sound car needs a driver. Your NIC needs a driver. Just because you see lights on the nic doesnt mean its functional.

Windows ME doesn't have many NIC drivers, you will have to DL one.

find out what nic you have and find the driver.

whats the device manager say about your nic? "working properly"?

Have you tried to renew the IP?

Hub may be the problem, if you are in the wrong port. Try a different port and renew IP.

Try a different cable and renew IP.

um...let me know how that works out, you have a router right. Belive it or not I went to this kids house to help him with his network, he had his cable modem hooked up to a hub.
