I've checked several threads but I'm stil unsure what action to take.
Clean install of 7HU over XP Pro SP3, both 32bit. XP Pro SP3 was on two HDDs, is still on one.
7 starts up fine, even better than XP used to on my relic of a PC.
Main issue with 7 is I cannot access the 'net. 7 did not recognized my ethernet card at first, but I was able to un/reinstall using the drivers from the manufacturer's CD.
Now I get the old "local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuation" message. I have always been able to just plug and go in my house before. I do have a cable router and a 10/100 switch that send the 'net to the whole house, and seperate modem for the whole house VOIP. I have tried rebooting both of these routers individually and neither has resolved the connection issue.
Any and all help will be GREATLY appreciated
