NIC problem

Hi there. I am trying to set up my calbe modem (broadband) via my new ethernet port.

           I can install the drivers fine but when i try to connect the modem to it, nothing happens. I am with NTl and i have an NTL CD which sorts installation out for you. It says "DHCP" relese failed. It also says error code 220, and an explenation of what it is. Is says "GHost NIC addendam". Drivers detected but card not on the system. THe card is on the system thow and it recognises it in System hardware.


               CAn anyone shed some light on this please

Unless you have a router as part of your cable modem, you should not have DHCP enabled anywhere.  The card itself should have drivers installed in device manager without a yellow exclamation mark next to it.

Uninstall the card from Device manager and then reinstall it.  If that fails, try movinging the NIC to another PCI slot, then installing

What OS are you using?  Open up a DOS window and type ipconfig /all

So it sounds like your card is working fine.  Do the ipconfig as Callandor suggests, then also try this from DOS: "ping 127.0.0.1"
