Modem conection I can not connect to my modem using my PC, but I can connect using my friend's laptop. I have the IP address from the laptop, but not from my PC, when I gave ipconfig. I went to device manager, and the modem that is on the motherboard Asus, has no driver. I bought a new EtherFast 10/100 LAN Card Linksys and install the driver. Still I can not connect to internet. Can you please help me conect to internet? I have a comcast cable internet connection.

I have just re-installed windows XP home edition, now I have the same problem - my 1394 net adaptor is showing as IP unavailable. I am connected using telewest cable modem and belkin router. I can connect to the internet with my other computer. I've tried sticking in all the driver disks that came the the PC but nothing. I also tried to deinstall from device manager the IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controller and restarted the PC. But still nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Riz

    To answer questions from idiskosmos....

    - router is one supplied by Virgin cable

    - OS is Windows XP home edition

    - modem has a steady light and is working fine on my other laptop

    - ipconfig shows nothing. It just says Windows IP configuration with no numbers



I had this same problem, you need to buy a new Ethernet Card

In order to troubleshoot this problem, I need the following information:

Are you using a router?
What OS do you have?
Does your modem have a steady "online" light?
What IP address is coming up in ipconfig?
