Can't connect to internet

  Rogerfredo 09:02 27 Sep 2008

I have just tried loading the "High performance" defaults in the BIOS of my MSI KT6 system.
There is a warning message that states that stability could be an issue, but I decided to try anyway. The PC now is considerably faster and appears to work well in all my applications (eg Office, Photoshop etc.). - The only problem is that it will not connect to the internet unless I return the system to the "normal" setup defaults.
Can anyone suggest which settings are likely to be affecting the internet access when the faster settings are selected? I would like to retain the improved speed and avoid having to upgrade the motherboard/ processor to achieve the same result.

Wired or wireless?

Sounds as if it has switched off the LAN settings on the network chip

Have you tried right clicking local area Connection and press repair.

yep i agree with buteman try right clicking local area connection and press the repair icon. Thatshould resolve the LAN settinggs on the network chip.

Thanks for your replies. You were correct in that the network connection was not started when I used the "high performance" settings. The repair function was not useable as the problem was that no network adaptor was found. I tweaked some of the settings back to slightly slower figures and the system is now ok.
Thanks again.
