    Hi, ok, so i have an acer 7520g preinstalled with vista, and yesterday i bought xp so i could install it on second harddrive for gaming. After it was installed, i installed the updates, drivers for video card, speakers, directx, wireless network (atheros ar5007eg) but heres my problem:

    I can't get cabled internet to work. When i launch vista (where everything works) and look under device manager it just says
    "Atheros.....(wireless)"
    "Microsoft 6to4-networkcard (Which btw has an 31 error?)
    "NVIDIA nForce Networking controller"

    I got wireless working but i dont know what drivers i need to make cable work... any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to TSG!

    What does the Device Manager show when booted to XP?
    Did you download and install the Chipset driver for XP?
    From this thread:
    Choose the 7520g of course
