I have a gateway computer a friend gave me. But it wont connect to the internet. It says that it is but its not working at all. The driver that i see is 1394 net adapter which i cant find anywhere. I have also tried reinstalling windows xp and it does not seem to help? any clues?
How are you connecting to the internet? Did you just plop the thing down in your house or did you wire it to the modem/router. You need to have a working network adapter in the system, check for lights on the network card, should be 2 of them, one solid one blinking. If not, you need to install the drivers for it. Or possibly get a new network card if the one you have is installed but not working.
