New system build, A8N-SLI / Athlon64, fresh install of XP Professional 64.
XP does not see the onboard ethernet. (It DOES see the onboard 1394, interestingly
enough, even though there's nothing on it.) The connection and activity LEDs near the
ethernet jack indicate a good (100bits/s) connection, and activity, so I have to believe
the h/w is okay. The cable modem and router are fine; my older desktop is running off
of them without issue.
I've gone through the "connect to the internet" wizard (for always-on broadband) and
have poked around in Hardware Manager a bit - can't find anything there.
Note that when I installed XP the ethernet port was disabled. I have since enabled it
in the BIOS and rebooted. Also I have not yet installed anything from the ASUS CD -
I want to get a clean update of XP first.
