Setup Lan Conection

Specs: Windows XP, Unknown

I just lately setup Win XP on my computer and to my surprise, when I went to network connections to configure everything, there was no LAN connection. Only a 1394 connection and adapter driver. I have no idea what this is but from messing with it for hours than finally deciding to check it up I find out... It's useless *sigh*. I attempted setting up a LAN connection from the network wizard but I could not find a way to do so (it could just be me missing something).

Would anyone be able to either tell me how to setup a LAN connection with network wizard or another way to setup a LAN connection on my computer? I've been working with this all night and I just want to be able to sleep with ease knowing everything is completed *groan*.

p.s sorry that I cant atm give information on my system, I cant remember anything since I last checked. Also Win XP wouldn't upgrade my win 2k pro, possibly since this winxp is home edition i don't know, so I had to completely wipe off the partition and redo everything so I have no software to check it. Altho it's possibly irrelevant to the issue at hand anyway.

Do you have network adapter plugged in your computer? You need to have network adapter on your computer, then install the network driver and make network configuration.

Here is how I set up Ethernet home network<

You need to ensure you have the proper drivers for your Network Interface Card. Until that is done nothing will work. Go into Device Manager and you will probably find a yellow question mark next to the NIC indicating it has no drivers.

Where you get these drivers is dependant on what type of computer you have. Without some information on your system there is not much else I can say.
