|I searched all over the internet (and this forum), but could not find any similar problem. Maybe you can help?|
I got a brand-new PC which is running Windows XP Pro with SP3. I have set up the internet connection via DSL modem using the Networking tools. Upon OS start, the LAN connects (I figure this is a connection with the modem, cause there is no network, just this one PC). Whenever I want to connect to the DSL service provider to go online, the "dial-up" takes forever, often prompts errors (768 and the like), but when it connects, there is no data flow whatsoever.
I know the modem and DSL splitter are working (my laptop running Vista (of all things) connects w/o problems). The internet provider checked the DSL line and did not find any problems.
All TCP/IP settings and the like are set on automatic.
Could it be that the onboard network card is in the sh...? Any ideas?
