|The machine in question runs on Windows XP Media Center Edition. We recieved the BT Home Hub 2.0 last summer, and I set it up on the machine no problem - all was well. My mother then had a laptop bought for her, and as the machine was hers, no longer needed the desktop to connect to the internet due to a wireless connection.|
She unplugged everything and stashed it under the stairs.
I've recently uncovered it, and while it starts up fine, it won't connect to the internet.
On multiple occasions I've tried running the quick start CD to try and get the software for it back on the system (as I'm assuming my mother had deleted it when she figured she didn't need an internet connection on this machine) but it's not detecting that the system is wired up via ethernet to the home hub.
On a side note, I know the hub is working fine as I'm connecting to it wirelessly on my laptop, and my brother is able to access X-box Live through a wired connection.
I have not yet searched for drivers for the hub and installed them onto the machine, I am in the process of doing that after posting this.
Other than that, I am completely stumped as to why it's not working, and it's beginning to grind on me.
Any help given would be greatly appriecated!!
