Devolo - Ethernet connection problem

  kerryh_r 14:38 14 Mar 2008

I have been trying to get 2 devolo adapters (ethernet only) talking to each other on a multi plug adapter for a buddy. I did it at my place first no problem.
When I tried it with his, there seemed to be a problem with his ethernet port on the pc. This seemed to be supported by the fact that I could only connect his modem via usb, and not ethernet. I took the old ethernet out (maybe it was an adsl adaptor?), but did no software tweaks/uninstalls. Then I physically installed the new ethernet card with its new software.
When I try and connect now, the system appears to think i have two ethernet cards and i can not connect to the one I want.
Did I miss something out, ie a windows xp uninstall process for the old hardware that would free the resource ready for the new one? If so, what can I do to tell the system it aint there, or alternatively both aren't there, and reinstall new.
Thanks in advance guys.

When you remove any cards/devices always uninstall drivers first. Then put in new device then install new drivers.
