I have just rebuild a 4 year old XPC Shuttle .... needed new PSU and hard drive.  Once assembled, installed WinXP and away it went .... everything seemed to be working fine.

Installed driver package (Gart/SMBus/Ethernet/Audio) from off manufactures web site (using another machine), then updated to SP3, and again all is well so far. 

However, cannot connect to the internet !

It says connected but in Hardware Devices I see that the item is called "1394 NetAdapter", and to my mind that is the Firewire port.

Try as I may I just can't get the ethernet-internet connection to qork or even show up as a normal ethernet connection.  The computer is cabled directly into my router, should not be any conflicts etc, and the lights on both the ethernet port and the router are showing, so power is going through.

Any ideas p[lease?

R.

Might pay to check in the BIOS that the onboard LAN/ethernet hasn't disabled itself for some reason.

Went through BIOS several times ... can't see any LAN reference there at all (Pheonix Award).
