*orginaly posted in the wrong forum sorry*
I recently upgraded a computer that i haven't used in a couple years to XP SP2 from WinMe after the upgrade i installed all the new drivers and a wireless card. The computer is a compaq persario desktop. The wireless card when installed says it is working and connects to the router with no problem but when an explore is open it fails to bring in the information
I then patched in a cable and the internet works but with a constant pop up that LAN2 is Unplugged. the connection speed is very slow and constantly asked if i want to work off line.
I have ran several virus scan on the computer and picked up several Trojans that i think i have taken care of but yet the problem persist. I have tried the patch cables on other computers around the house and they all work fine. So the cables are fine(I have tried 3 different cables.) I have searched the forums for solutions but have yet to find one that would work with the computer.

here are my windows stats

I assume you ran this ipconfig with the wireless card removed?
Look in Network connections for LAN2 and figure out what it is.
I suspect it's an extra you don't need, and you can disable it or remove it.
You could also right-click the connection and remove the check from "Notify me..."
