I know this is a silly question, but did you install the USB driver from the cable modem CD from RR?
I've just recently reinstalled XP pro on my laptop. When trying to setup a basic internet connection using road runner LAN/Cable, there is no connection.
I tried using the Setup Wizard, but that did absolutely nothing. A connection wasn't even established in My Network Places/Network Connections folders.
I also tried turning on/off the modem again to see if there would be recognition of the connection, but that didn't work either.
I'm pretty sure it isn't the modem itself, as I'm using my other laptop on a wireless connection on the same modem. There is currently no anti-virus or firewalls setup by myself, just the basic xp pro fresh out of installation.
Any other solutions out there?
