    I built a new computer this weekend. I put it together, it booted fine. Did the whole partition set up, installed windows etc etc. Everything worked flawlessly until I tried to connect to the internet.

    I'm getting a "Limited or no Connectivity" warning and I can't connect. I used my old computer to download the most current drivers off the nvidia site and that didn't work. I reformatted and installed only the most current drivers. I did an ipconfig release renew. I'm set to obtain an IP and DNS automatically but I don't have an IP. Instead of the 1 Local Area Connection I have on my old computer this computer has 3. (2 ethernet jacks on the mobo) 2 say local area connection 1 and 2, with the second one not being connected, the one connected says "limited to no connectivity. The third one says 1394 and is a 400mb per second connection compared to a 100mb like the other 2.

    If i unplug the new computer and use the same ethernet cable on my old computer, internet works fine. The only thing changing is which computer i jack into, so it has to be something I'm missing on the new computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks :)
