Check in device manager for a red cross on the Network adapter
I have dusted down my old tower and want to update the sound card driver. Therefore, I have tried to connect it via my modem via Ethernet. However, when it gets to the appropriate part of the CD download software it states that my tower does not have an Ethernet connection.
I know it does because I used it to connect to the web years ago.
Can anyone shed any light on exactly what the problem is?
