I cant connect to the internet, but if you will try my internet line or dsl to other pc it will connect, i already bought a LAN card and installed it but still doesnt work... they said theres a problem wid my mother board... pls help me...
Motherboard shouldn't be the problematic. if you can ping the live ip address but can't browse then it may be the resolving error and it should be fix from your internet service provider. In the otherhand there are some viruses which can block the browsing facility. you try with another browser like opera,firefox other than your current browser. update your antispyware and antivirus and do full system scan.
and ask to ISP what level of security has been provided to you. basically ISP provide
userlevel,IP based, MAC based security tell them to check it after you confirm there is no viruses,spyware or errors in your browser

Re: cant connect to internet
If the PC with the ECS P4VMM2 motherboard is connected to a network with a hub or router check if you can see the other PCs assuming their sharing is turned on. If yes then it is possible that you have to simply set the IP Add, Subnet, specially the Internet gateway and DNS in your IP/Networking configuration of the P4VMM2 PC assuming you want to manually install these numbers and not to Auto Obtain. Just make sure you follow the numbers of the other PCs except for the last digit(s) of the P4VMM2 PC IP Add.
If you can not see the other PCs in your network, then it is possible that your lan cable is defective, try checking if the lights in your hub/router and/or at the back of your lan card lits up when you plug your cable both ends. If yes then it is good if not you have to replace your cable. Since you installed a new LAN card, I will assume that you have checked if the drivers are installed in the Device Manager and there are no conflicts or yellow mark(s).
Both versions of the ECS P4VMM2 (7.3 & 8.1) have built-in LAN, if you want to continue using the new lan card it might help conserve resources if you disable the built-in lan in your bios or use the original built-in lan instead and reconfigure.
In Win XP, try uninstalling the lan in Device Manager, on reboot it will be auto reinstalled and you can manually configure again.
If by a remote chance that you are using 98SE, try checking your root file MSDOS.sys and see if there is an entry that say Network=0, change it to 1.
I doubt if the motherboard is defective since you already tried installing a new lan card.
Good luck. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

first of all search your internet connection method (DSL Cable line or a dongle) is connect to the computer well. now try to enable your connection which might be disabled by you or another user who used the computer early. through those methods if you didn't get the results. try to contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider)...
How you connect it depends on how you plan to use it. Let me explain:
Some people have a dsl line (high speed internet connection) and their modem from their internet provider only has room for one computer cable to connect and use the internet. If the customer has more then one desktop computer they want to connect to the internet, they will need to buy a router. A router provides multiple ports for several computers to connect to the internet at the same time.
If you have a dsl modem already and bought a router to add additional computers to your network - then follow the instructions below to set it up:
Connect your phone cord from the wall into the dsl modem. Plug in the power cable from the dsl modem to the wall and turn it on. Connect an ethernet cable to the dsl modem (ethernet cables are the ones that look like a regular telephone cord but the ends are a little larger) and connect the other end to your router. Make sure you plug this cable into the port marked "ethernet" on your router. There is only one port for your internet connection line coming into the router, the rest of the ports are for adding computers only. Some routers say the word "ethernet" near the port for the internet connection. Others have a picture near or or brackets around it to show that it is different then the others. Plug in the power cord to your router and turn it on. Make sure you turn on your modem first and let it warm up before connecting your router. Modem power on first, then router power on - always.
Now connect an ethernet cable to your router and connect the other end to the pc you wish to use on the internet. Do not turn on your pc until the ethernet cord is attached. Your dsl modem has to be powered up first, followed by your router and then your pc. All in that order.
Your computer should automatically sense the internet connection upon start up. You can verify that your connection is installed correctly and that your pc is sensing it by looking at the bottom right side of your screen near the clock area. You should see a picture of a computer monitor that represents your internet connection status. Sometimes they glow green when they are healthy. Sometimes they show a red X on top of them if they are disconnected from the internet. If you can't find the Icon for your internet connection on the bottom right side of your screen, unplug the ethernet cable from the back of your pc - while watching the bottom right side area and plug it back in again. Watch for a change to locate the icon. Sometimes there is a downward pointing arrow near the clock which needs to be clicked on to open up the area and view the icons.
Thats all! One line from the modem to the router - another line from the router to the pc - and the internet should be up and running fine.
If you bought a router combination modem - then its the same as above - just without a separate dsl modem. (i.e. Connect the power cable from the router/modem to the wall. Connect the ethernet cable to the port marked "ethernet" for your internet connecton and connect the other end of the cord to your pc. Then turn your pc on. Router/modem power on first and pc power on second in that order)
All the lights on your modem should be green and steady - except for the one marked internet or connection which is usually flashing and moving. If you have any red or yellow lights then you need to troubleshoot and correct the problem before your internet connection will work.
If the card is installed properly you should see it in device manager and not have a yellow question mark next to it. It should also say in device manager whether the device is working properly or not and is there any light flashing on the network card trying to connect. Possibly you may need to get updated drivers off the internet from another computer and transfer to that PC. If this is all too much headache i just recently bought a new Realtek network card from MSY for $9 so its not the end of the world....cheers from Scott
if u r using dial up connection then change it with dsl.if u have already dsl and its speed is very slow
then use modem boosters search it from google and install free of cost it can also help u in dial up connection......
assuming you have a wireless router, make sure you have purchased the correct one, as cable and dsl routers are different, as cable modems need to be connected to the router via a cable and dsl normally have a modem that can't be connected to a router, and you will require a modem/router.
You can only share a wireless connection when the line comes directly to the router and not through a pc, as the pc with the connection will have to always be on.
First thing I did with my Netgear is this.
Plug in the dsl/cable modem to the PC directly. Then install the driver on the cd. If you are one of the unlucky types like I was, the router didn't come with a cd. Try going to Netgers page see if they have a driver. Most are basically auto install. Try this before you check the netgear site though. Plug in the cable/dsl modem to the router and the pc to the router. Resstart everything. This includes the modem, router and pc. When it pops back up, try seeing if that works. if not, try opening up Internet explorer. Type this in to the url. 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0
That should bring up the netgear setup page for the router. If it ask for a password, the password on mine was
username - admin
password - password
It has an auto configure tab so click on that and that should automatically take care of everything for you. Let me know what happens!
