    Post Ethernet Network Card Problem

    Hey,

    I have a friend who is trying to connect their Windows XP laptop to a wired ethernet network. The problem is when one connects an ethernet cable to the laptop and to the network and then one looks in Network Connections the connections just reads "Network Cable Unplugged" .

    I am working on the assumption that this problem is being caused by a driver error. The current network card and driver are Intel(R) PRO/100 P Mobile Combo 5.41.22.0000.

    I would greatly appreciate any help that anyone can give me.


    Thanks in Advance,

    User0182

    Hi oofki,

    Is this what you mean?

    http://cexx.org/lspfix.htm

    It is a fix for the LSP stack in Winsock2.

    Or are we talking about a different tool?

    Try another cable??

    Can you ping another computer?

    Can you ping 127.0.0.1?

    This should tell you if the NIC is working??

    Check Device manager and make sure its not disabled.
