We have a Gateway 505GR and the power went out the other day and now we can't get on the internet. When you go into my network connects the LAN local area connection is gone. I'm assuming this is a driver issue. The ethernet card is showing on with a steady burn light. I've been on the Gateway website several times and have not been able to find the driver downloads?????

Re: Gateway 505GR not showing LAN line for internet
Assuming it's XP,right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down list for network adapters, if its there click the '+' sign, then right click on the network adapter and select uninstall.
Restart pc and the network card will be found and the driver automatically installed.
It should now be in network connections, if not reply back

Hello guys, This problem would arise only when the motherboard doesn't work properly. Check with your nearest gateway service center to get your CPU work again. That would be the only thing to be done.
I got a gateway 505gr that I had to restore , but I lost the disc . So I used another disc. from my newer gateway and it worked . I cant promise you anything but I will see if I can burn you a copy to try if interested . if not I got a copy of window xp pro that I can send you that will work. you can email me at email@example.com .
try this to update the driver..... first hit the start , go to my computer , hit view system information , hit hardware , click device manager , look for network adapters. hit the + sign beside it , right click Ethernet , and then update driver. Most the time when they need to be updated they will have a yellow ? mark beside them if not still update them . hope this helps
not powering up does not mean the mother board is bad , the power supply going bad is more likely to be the problem . But your tower is considered to be a mini tower ive got the same one that I replaced the mother board on . dont mess up and get the wrong size board , it will not fit!
Did you check the type of the memory card the motherboard of your computer would support? It may be a DDR1 or DDR2 and also check how much memory your motherboard can hold. You disconnect the memory card and check to see if the computer would turn on.
