No Internet Connection on XP Desktop

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

Hi woodchip, glad you got it working. I assumed they were the correct drivers as the disks were in the box with the card, maybe not.

No the Drivers on the discs would not work, but using the old Netgear card connected to router along with the one you sent plugged into empty PCI slot it could see the card but had to download the drivers of the net Windows was able to find the drivers on the net, using Device Manager to Update Drivers
