    Hi Everyone !
    I'm hoping someone can give me some help with this problem.
    Built a new system.....Win ME, Shuttle AK31a mobo, 256 mb DDR,
    AMD 1.33 cpu, with a PCI Realtek 10/100 Lan card.

    I can't seem to get a connection to my network. The card installed ok. Updated drivers. No conflicts in IRQ's. All of my network settings are correct. I changed PCI slots, thinking this might be the problem, but no help !

    Could this just be a bad card even though it shows up fine ? Is there a setting in the BIOS that I might have overlooked ? Any suggestions would sure be appreciated.

    Thanks........MTBIRD

    In checking for the other computers through either opening a window or explorer, did you refresh the view?

    You've wiggled your cable connectors?

    You've swapped cables with a computer that sees the network just fine?

    Made sure the settings are exact down to caps and spaces, and not just looks okay?

    Are you typing in the TCP/IP address or using DHCP? If you're typing, then double-check that you're not using another machine's addy.

    I'll assume you're using a hub. Have you switched the cable over to a port on the hub that works while another computer's using it?

    Swapped a working card in to see if it works on that computer?
