Asus MOBO new install of XP Pro SP2.  The nic works and I can surf, but it does not show up in the network connections folder.  The NIC shows up in the device manager.  I have uninstalled the program in add/remove programs that contains the NIC Driver, and then reinstalled it.  I need to set a static IP for port forwarding on my router, but can't because the Connection doesn't show up in my Network Connections Folder from Control Panel.

Turn off the LAN device in the BIOS.. reboot the system in SAFE mode, then REMOVE the device from device manager.

Turn on the LAN device, then let Windows XP re detect.. post back your results.

uninstalling and reninstalling the onboard LAN didn't seem to help.  It works, I just can't find it in the network connections to set the static IP.
