The first question is do you see your network device and does Windows show it as functioning properly? Next is how is IP addressing handled?
I have reinstalled a copy of windows xp to my computer and cannot manage to get it to recognize my internet connection. We use verizon vios and my connection comes thru a router but i am not connected to anetwork just the internet connection. I have tried thru internet options and network connections but it does not recognize the connection. How do I get it to recognize the connection?
