Reinstalling Local Area Connection
Posted on 2006-10-22
I just installed WIndows XP on a new computer.
FOr some reason there is no Local Area Connection icon. Just a 1394 connection icon.
How can I recreate the Local Area Connection?
I notice that in my Device Manager that Other Devices all have yellow questionmarks next to them, including Ethernet Controller. Not sure if Ethernet Controller gives you a clue.
Also my network connection plug is onboard the motherboard.
I tried uninstalling the network adapter in the device manager and rebooted, but I didn't see WIndows reinstalling the network adapter -- and when I looked in the Device Manager it was there again. Possibly this is because the hardware is on the motherboard?
