hi! I think u need to install drivers in your PCI internet/LAN Card or built-in LAN
Please check the brand of Motherboard if it is built-in or the PCI Card Brand. and browse it in the net with another PC with the NET connection, to the manufacturer websites. and search it with corresponding model of the motherboard or the PCI Card. and download the Driver's and save to USB
and paste it to ur PC and install it.
if this tips is helpful. please rate it. thank you.
On the computers that are not getting Internet access, check the LAN cables to the router. Does the Link LEDs on the router for these computers are ON?
If the LED lights are off then the LAN cable and/or network cards are faulty.
Check Device Manager on these computers to see if the LAN card is working and enabled. If not re-install the LAN drivers. If the driver installation cannot detect the LAN card then most likely the LAN card is faulty and needs replacing.
Get back to me with the results of these tests and I can advise what to do next.
Either the LAN card is faulty or the LAN driver is not installed and/or not configured properly or the LAN cable is faulty.
Check Device Manager to see if the LAN driver is installed, working and enabled. If not then re-install the LAN card driver.
If the LAN driver won't install or detect the LAN card then it maybe faulty and needs to be replaced.
Try a different LAN cable.
Is all the LEDs on in the modem?
Try rebooting the modem (power it off for 30 secs and power it up again).
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.
