I have a home network which consist of 2 PC's and the O/S are XP HE and Win98 SE. I have them connected via a Netgear RP614v2 router. My NIC card is the SiS 900-based Fast Ethernet Adapter. Why is it I can't get online with the XP machine but I can with the Win 98 machine. I was told by the Netgear Tech that my NIC card was not holding the address so that is why I was not getting on the internet or being able to use my MSN Messenger to chat. Please let em know if I need to replace my NIC Card. ( I can get online if the router is not connected).
