network card

I have just installed a new network card to enable ethernet connectivity to ntl cable modem. When I connect to netowrk connections it tells me it is unplugged. the 1394 shows as active. How do I get it to work????

I did this last month with NTL cable modem and it works OK.

Before I proceed any further I would point out the following: -

(a) The Master computer (one actually connected to the modem) must be switched on, and not in hibernation.

(b) The Slave Computer will not be able to access the internet if the Master computer is not as in (a) above.

If you still have a problem if (a) and (b)are OK
then please post a reply.

a & b are ok, infact i have not even tried joining up the slave pc. I intend to go wirless but the router that i brought only attaches to the modem with ethernet. Hence i brought a network card to connect the modem to the main pc, instead of the usb lead which i currently use.

cable BB is located to a particular network device, you need to register with NTL the "mac" address of you new network card, but

if you connect it through a router, you should register router's MAC address

mac address is normally on the card, but you can find out, forgot what command, other may advice you on this

go to Run and type "msinfo32", component, network, adaptor, you find it there

If your Router supports it Clone MAC. There is a feature in most Routers that enable you to clone your main PC's MAC.(The one you registered with ISP).

MAC address start>run>cmd "XP" command "winME98">ipconfig/all>enter

The mac address is not shown? nor does it show any ip address?

bring up command promt i start run in box type cmd when black box comes up type ip config/all
right of the line that says physical adress you will see a series of numbers and letters that is your network card mac adress

Sorry, that says both the new card and previous nvidia card are both disconnected.

Could there be a softwareconflict somewhere?

1394 is firewire if i'm not mistaken? and i'm assuming here that you've got an ethernet network card?

what make and model of network card did you install?

sounds like you haven't installed the drivers if its an ethernet port.

its a belkin, 32bit desktop network pci card
