Re-Install the drivers for the on board NIC.

Chances are your drivers are having a conflict. Might not have the latest version or the version that works with your OS.

If your IPCONFIG /ALL shows you have a valid IP and your default gateway is set to the router's IP and you have a DNS but you can not ping the router then it is a driver issue.

Please post your IPCONFIG /ALL.

"Was connected to router using on-board 1394"

How is this possible? 1394 is firewire which is for cameras, etc.
I have never seen a router that supports firewire.

are you sure you're not looking at the wrong interface?

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Results of ipconfig /all :
Windows IP Configuration

that's it.

For Wanderer: yes, I know it's odd, but I made no hardware changes at all when I re-installed XP. That's where it was plugged in and working perfectly.... then.
When I check Network Connections from Control Panel, it shows:
LAN or High Speed Internet:
1394 Net Adapter, connected

When I click on it, the box shows it is connected, the duration clock is ticking, and the speed is 400 Mbps. From there, when I select Properties, the next window says This connection uses the following:
Client for MS Networks
File & Print Sharing for MS Networks
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
All the boxes are checked.

Just found another discussion board ( with a discussion that looks like my problem. There someone has stated "Often users encounter issues with their on-board network card after the operating system has been reinstalled and the motherboard chipset drivers are not installed."
And same recommendation as ace_omega advised, reinstall drivers for on-board NIC.
I do have the CD that came with the motherboard (4 years ago), so I will do that now.
Thanks everybody, I'll post my results.

Bloody Hell, it worked!
When I put the CD in, it showed a list of 6 or 8 "programs", all of which were "not installed" status. After I installed them all, I checked my Network Connections again, and there indeed was a Local Area Connection 2 showing.
I had to disable the first one, then enable the new one, but after that everything started working again. Fantastic!
I knew that the solution would be something simple, and probably only take 2 minutes to fix.... it just took me 2 days to find it!
Thanks everybody! I'm off to update all my newly back-to-the-original-version software!
