|I have this dell pc (p4 w/ 256 ram) and I recently did a fresh install of XP on it...the built in NIC was dead so I installed a netgear fa311 model NIC card...it works just fine when I plug it in my home router(comcast cable) ... but it refuses to accept the IP address when I plug it in my office(AT&T dsl)...it is not the office connect or cable as I have plugged in 2 other PCs and one laptop in the same line at work and it works just fine on all three cases...the results in the IPCONFIG screen varies, such as:|
- no IP adress, media disconnected
- the IP has the gateway address (192.168.1.1) and the gateway is blank
- I have tried release and renew, did not help
- tried assiging an IP from TCP-IP config...did not work
I brought the pc back home and it works just fine again...
Please help me out if anyone knows why my NIC is being so moody.
