    I recently reformatted my computer and reinstalled Vista to it. I installed all the necessary drivers etc. and rebooted. But it still says "You are not connected to any networks" when the light on my router says that i am connected to the home network. It keeps saying to insert a network cable.
    In the devices manager, the network card driver seems to be functioning normally.

    Is there a fix for this?

    The network card is a Realtek RTL 8111C on-board chip.

    Also, ive read somewhere else that USB & 1394 drivers having conflicting effects with lan drivers. I installed an "Intel INF Configuration patch" which contained a crapload of USB Drivers which supposedly "configured properly" the intel motherboard chipsets, but im not so sure about that.

    Did you assign static ip to your Ethernet card?

    No, but ive configured the card so it accepts any IP given to it by the router, and it seemed to work perfectly fine before i decided to reformat it.

    Try this turn off any other computer, only use this computer. I think they are trying to get same ip address. Use ethernet cord instead of usb cord.

    well... this computer isnt the one having problems. I have 3 computers, 2 wireless networked, and the problem one is wired with ethernet cable. The problem one can't do anything. Its completely blocked off. The internet is provided through LAN so it cant do anything

    hmm D-link DSL-G604T. Its got "smart firewall" or "adaptive firewall" or something that lets traffic thru. but i dont think firewall would totally obstruct the pc from accessing the network

    hmm it wasnt that. It seemed to be that the NIC had died. Its all better now. I got myself a PCI D-Link LAN card.
