No network connection

April 28, 2010 at 12:55:05
Specs: Windows XP
I have purchased and installed a Linksys LNE100TX network adapter card. I have the latest drivers and the card is in securely. However, when connected to the cable modem, the system is not working. I am receiving a code 10 error when I check the device manager; the system informs me that the hardware cannot be started. Any thoughts?

Code 10 is a generic code but it usually means incompatible driver. Are you sure you downloaded the driver for Windows XP 32 bit and not 64 bit?

Did you install all the Linksys software or just the drivers?

I have installed the latest and greatest drivers, and ensured that the connection is sound. The high speed internet is also functional, as is the network cable. As near as I can see, my system just is not recognizing the attached hardware. I already replaced this item once today, so I seriously doubt that the item itself is defective. And other cards I have installed in the system work perfectly. So what do you think should be my next step?

I installed the software from the disk - it was auto launching. I then went to the Linksys site and got the latest drivers.

Like I said above this is a driver issue. Make sure you got the RIGHT driver not just the latest and greatest. It needs to match your OS. If you are running a 64bit OS then you need a 64bit driver. If you are running a 32bit OS like wise. If you know for sure you have the right driver then double check the IRQ setting on the driver.

Sorry, you lost me. I am a bit of a novice when it comes to installations and reinstalls and drivers. The device came with a CD which I used to install the drivers for XP, then I updated drivers from the website. I am running Win XP. How do I go about finding the 64 vs. 32 bit OS information, and the IRQ settings for the device?

Is there an onboard Network Card and if so did you disable it in BIOS? Just wondered if there was some driver compatibility problem.


What's the time?

No network card other than the one I just purchased. There is a modem card but I don't think that should make a difference.

I just tried to update the driver again. This time I received an error : The name is already in use as either a service name or service display name... Is it possible for me to change one of those settings to make it accept the update?
