|I feel like I missed something stupid, but I have been trying to fix this issue for over 4 hours now to no avail and I just know something must have slipped my mind somewhere... |
I did a clean install on a Dell Op GX270 and d/l the required drivers from the dell website (including the chipset and gigabit ethernet drivers). I get the message "limited or no connectivity" through my router.
Here is my setup:
DSL Modem->Router->XP SP2 desktop1 (wireless), XP desktop2 (wired and doesn't work), Xbox360 (wired)
The wireless desktop is in another room if that matters. I am also able to connect with my phone, pda, DishNetwork set top box, etc. The only thing that doesn't work is that stupid Dell.
I have tried-
- ipconfig /release and /renew
- flush DNS
- Repair connection
- disable and enable connection
- rebooting modem and router
- disabling firewall
- different cables
- install and reinstall drivers
- connect directly to router
I don't have service pack 2 yet, but I still tried the
For now I'm going to d/l service pack 2 and put it on disk and see if that helps. I've also found the LAN Ethernet driver on another site that I will try to install.
I cannot even access the router (192.168.1.1)
I'm wondering if maybe this is a hardware or driver issue? Did I miss something stupid?
