A couple of days ago, I formatted my drive and installed XP. I installed 4 in 1 drivers, followed by my network drivers (onboard LAN from an ECS K7VTA3). I realized I installed the wrong set of 4 in 1 drivers, so I installed different ones. This caused conflicts, so I used system restore to roll back. All of a sudden my network worked fine.
A day later, I came back to my computer, and discovered I couldn't get on again. I check the connection status, and suddenly, I wasn't receiving packets anymore.
Connected through a Linksys Cable router, across 2 hubs. The connection of the person sharing the hub with me works fine
In Device Manager, it shows that I have not installed drivers for a network controller. It doesn't seem happy with any of the drivers I own. However, I'm 99% sure my connection worked without this anyway.
Proccessor: Athlon XP 2100
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers numerous times
I've swapped between the onboard lan and a Hawking USB to RJ 45 connector. One of the LEDs is on, the LED labelled 10/100 is not. The documentation does not say if it should be on, but I'm guessing it should
System worked fine before reformat
Tried reformatting a second time, did not work.
Thank you for an answer.
