How do I get to connect with a old Medion Desktop? Modem built into motherboard, Running XP Home
in Networking in Control Panel it says this
1394 Net Connection Adapter #2
Network Bridge Mac Miniport
I have set it to connect Automatic.
When I try Repair it says cannot renew IP Address.
It shows it as sending Packets, but not receiving none, I take it that it is a Communication Problem between Router and Modem. On talktalk BB it will connect okay with WiFi Dongle but I now have the router next to PC and would rather it is connected by Ethernet
Thank you very much, I may be able to help you out one day.
PS I was a Joiner but nearly 40 years working for self. Subbed for MFI fitting Kitchens and Bedrooms plus odd bathroom. Did all Electrical work including Ringmains etc and was Corgi Registered for a time. Repaired Cars and motorcycles over the years including Mig Welding and car Spraying. plus much more got a fund or now how but not much els, body cannot do much nowhere days
Got the Card through the letter box while I was at Tesco's Going to fit it latter as I need to fit a new Frame round the CPU as the one that came with the PC plastic clips broke. I did find an old Netgear 10/1000 and XP installed it but think its a bit out of touch with today's world as it seems to give a delay w3hen clicking on things in web pages. So Thank you very much for sending it, I will post again when I have fitted the Frame and Card
When I ran the Setup EXE on the CD it says no Network Card Present, So finished up putting the old Netgear card back in. But not to worry as at l;east I can connect using Ethernet cable in Duplex Mode.
