Trying to install NTL broadband onto my winxp. when it says its obtaining a new ip address an error message comes up & says "DHCP release/renew failed. You have 1 network adapters set to DHCP - NVIDIA nForce MCP Adapter"
I've successfully had the internet in the past but i've just upgrade mobo with onboard LAN.(mobo - a7n266-vm. Could this be the problem..?? Im sure i've downloaded the latest drivers..
Any help appreciated..

..downloading it now, as it seems newer than the stuff i got off the ASUS site. Did you have problems with your sound as well..??
Problem i have got is no sound & no LAN/internet connection..!!
