Hello All, I'm just about done with trying to get Windows 7 to work, and more than ready to go back to Windows XP. However, before I would do that, I figured I'd start with step 1/2 of my problem, and see if I can't get it working. To the best of my googling and forum searching, I have not come across this particular issue, and I've tried many of the other solutions to see if they might alleviate my problem. No dice. I installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit last night, fresh install (since I was upgrading from Windows XP) onto a new partition. Install went fine right up until the reboot process (Nvidia Drivers blue screen, different issue I'll ask about if this gets resolved). I've since worked around that, and windows installs fine (this is my 3rd install). I'm installing from a DVD, burned at 1x and sector verified. The problem I'm having is this: The Marvell ethernet controller will not connect. It will show the circle, it will attempt to connect to the router, the light at the back is flashing furiously, but there is no IP, no actual connection with the router. I've checked on the router logs, and there is no request for an IP from the computer. It will hang there until it goes into a private IP. Manually setting the IP/Gateway/DNS does not provide connectivity. I've tried this with 2 separate routers, connecting it directly into the modem, different cables, etc. No dice. I have updated the driver to the latest from Marvell, no solution. I've flushed the DNS, the sockets, etc. No dice. I've uninstalled and allowed windows to reinstall, same problem. I've disabled the windows firewall, same problem. I've reinstalled, same problem. The Event Log shows EventID 101 with a descriptor of 37351. I can't even connect long enough to activate, so I don't have a PID.
