    recently did a fresh install of windows XP on my computer. The install went fine, but when i tried to connect to the internet it wouldn't work. I went into network connections and the only thing displayed is 1394 net adapter, not the typical "Local Area Connection". I searched around a bit for network drivers but could find nothing sufficient. I have an AMD athlon 64 6400+ and Asus m2n Sli motherboard.
    Below is a picture of my device manager.

    did you install the motherboard chipset drivers? Everyone of those "?"'s points to something that whose driver is loaded with the Chipset Driver.

    Go to the asus site and input your mb model #. Select xp as the os and it will give you a link to download your chipset driver. This is a unified type driver that has a number of things in it; ie chipset, nic, firewall, sw type drivers, etc.

    FWIW I never install the sw driver or the firewall [sometimes called active armor]

    BTW these drivers are also on your asus support CD that came in the mb box.
