    Just thought of something.

    Go to Control Panel > Device Manager,. look under Network adapters and let us know what's listed.

    In your first reply to me you you stated you just had a modem..

    Where is this wireless connection coming from?

    Which one is listed under Other Devices?

    You never did answer my question regarding an update for NVIDIA nForce networking controller

    My wireless connection is coming from my neighbor I asked if I can use my wireless card for acouple of hours on it.

    Enthernet Controller is listed under Other Devices. And for the driver update for the nvidia nForce I do not know where to get it.

    Were you using your neighbor's intenet with XP? Looks like he has it password protected. I have used wireless internet hundreds of times from truckstops, starbucks, mcdonalds.. some let me on for free, others .. and in any shopping center you can find about a dozen possible connections.... require login name and password because they are not open to the public.

    Too bad he wasn't using Linux. There's a program that turns the screen upside down when someone is stealing your wireless connection:)

    It would be my luck that it would be MY screen that got flipped. I would be looking for a coat hanger and a flower pot screw to dangle my monitor from the ceiling.
