    NIC that came pre-installed on desktop running XP is connected to a router and was operating successfully. Router is connected to a cable internet connection. Now all of a sudden the NIC will send out packets but will not receive them. Installed a new NIC, but have same the problem.

    (Have recently experienced many power hits that have blown out the NICs on two different laptops connected to this same router. Replacing the NICs solved the problem for these laptops).

    Any ideas what the problem is for the desktop ??????

    Try a different port on the Router - try another cable - try another router.

    I know this might seem dumb, but if your computer filled with crapware like kazaa etc.. I've seen a lot of computers come into my shop that are loaded with crap on them so I run adaware and LSP fix or winsock fix and then the IP stack is fixed. Most of the time its software related issues like that that will cause the nic to stop working, even though the hardware is completely operational. Give it a try.

    Thank you for your replies......
    I had tried another port and cable and those tasks didn't work.

    Mr. Deznuts reply was interesting. There was a lot of crap software that came with this PC when my wife bought it. There have been a lot of software related problems with it. If I can convince her that reformatting is the answer I might finally get her PC to work and then she can STOP USING MINE !!!!!!
