  2. a few things i guess you could try.

    #1 if you know the brand and model of the network adapter in the system you can look it up online and get any drivers that would have come on a disk with a new PC.

    #2 you could try setting up the connection manually http://support.microsoft.com/kb/305549
  3. I'm pretty sure the NIC drivers aren't installed.
    That or the NIC is dead... Make sure you can see it in the device manager. If its not installed, it will show up as "Ethernet controller" under other devices...
