I've just got a new motherboard (Asus Av8 Deluxe) and installed windows XP Pro. but the on board LAN will not work when i look in "Network Connections" it said that a line is pluged in even if its not. and no ip address is asighned to it.
when i try to repair the connection i get the error "Failed to query TCP/IP settings of the connection. Cannot proceed"
I also tryed installing the drivers that came on the mobo CD.

i also installed my old BELKIN PCI ethernet card witch windows found and installed but cant connect to the internet.
i cant ping my router and it dose not receive any packets or get a ip from DHCP. all it dose is blink with an ethernet line cennected in it.

try installing this driver instead

btw, 'repairing' a connection only refreshes a dhcp request...it doesn't really fix anything

Windows XP natively only accepts signed drivers.
To install your mobo drivers, go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager, right  click on the item in question, install..., then point it directly to the  INF file on the disk.

Have you checked to make sure your Cat5 cable is good?

At this point, I'd suggest 3 things:

1) make sure you have the latest BIOS for this motherboard; this sounds like the kind of problem that a BIOS update would address

2) review the BIOS settings for the motherboard vis-a-vis the onboard network card.  There may be something in there, or maybe some skewed/shared interrupt/ram address stuff going on.

3) replace the motherboard as defective.

Try resetting TCP/IP -

If at this point, things still don't work, then maybe a hardware compatability problem.  Does your hardware show up on the Windows XP HCL ?

the only other time i've seen unexplained behavior like this was because of a corrupt winsock... try this program to fix it and see if it makes any difference...
