Hello there. (sorry about 'access' spelling in thread title!) I have just reformatted my desktop PC and reinstalled XP and for some reason I cannot access the internet. If I connect my Laptop to the Router via Ethernet it connects fine. I thought that Ethernet configured automatically? When I plug the ethernet cable into the ethernet port on my Desktop the little yellow light comes on. I don't think the Ethernet connection is even showing up under 'Network Connections', there's just 2 1394 (firewire I presume) showing. Do I have to activate the Ethernet connection or anything? My motherboard is an ASUS A7N8X-X for your info. Can anyone help me get it going again? Thanks for any help!
