Hello,I have a similar problem to that posted by tronblue.. namely I am attempting to get an old AMD k8 machine hooked up to my internet connection, and it's not playing ball. This PC (Which has been formatted with a fresh copy of XPx64 on it) used to connect fine, has no added network adapter, and is now recognising the ethernet port as an ieee1394 net adapter. any ideas?
It's a driver issue. Go to the motherboard maker's or computer maker's website and download the chipset drivers (which will usually include the network adapter), unless there's a separate driver for the network adapter.
