Ethernet connection not recognised by pc

  chrisjmat 20:18 14 Apr 2008


Although the Ethernet port on my pc lights up when connected to my modem it is not recognized when I look into internet connections. The modem works fine connected by usb and the Ethernet cable works fine when connected to another pc. This connection used to work but now does not. Any advice would be appreciated

Sorry for not getting back sooner but I think I have found the problem reading the latest problems re SP3 Norton and AMD. I think this has "removed" the ethernet connection as when I plug the cable in lights by it still come in. Now to keep reading to resolve this issue!
