Any other ideas? Does Windows 7 simply not work with my computer?


Windows 7 works other than this missing driver, right? Your PC is an older machine and a brand name which sometimes use "specialy manufactured" devices. Most likely it is driver or you have a bad NIC (Network Interface Card). Honestly a new NIC is much less expensive... $20 or so...

Just a thought, is the network card turned on in BIOS?

I thought of the idea to replace my network card. I found a 3com 3c905b-tx card. Found a thread on the Internet that helped me install the right driver correctly. Connected to internet and voilą.

Thanks for all your help!
