Cannot install LAN

Just replaced mobo, ABIT NF7-S2G. Fresh install XP pro. Installed nForce2 driver set. Windows keeps saying "new hardware found" and wants to go online for a driver. I've uninstalled several times, loaded the driver from the nForce CD, from a stick that I downloaded online, all no go. I also tried installing a Linksys wireless card and router, and it gives me a "internal error 302". Help please, before I break out the sledgehammer. thanks

  1. I'll help with the going online for drivers part...

    Start>Run>Gpedit.msc>Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>System>Internet Communications Management>Internet Communication Settings>Turn off Windows Update device driver searching (enable)

    Hope this helps

    Edit: oh... one of them 10 pound jobs with a long handle works pretty good. [:tigsounds]

  2. Actually, I have the drivers already, I downloaded them with another pc. The problem is this computer cannot access the internet because there is a "?" after the ethernet controller item in device manager and it refuses to recognize either of the two versions of the nforce2 drivers that I have on hand. I also tried a PCI wireless adapter to no avail.
