Previously had windows 98 and did a completely new install of XP (no upgrade). The limited or no connectivity already appeared before in windows 98. Figured i needed to get xp anyway and it would take care of the problem (2 birds w/ one stone).
Obviously this didn't work and still getting limited or no connectivity. Have tried to put a brand new NIC in, and the connection is fine since i another computer on side of this one and when i plug it in that one there is no problem.
The hook up is a cable modem going directly into the computer. Nothing complicated. HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!
