yes i have, didn't make any difference

to answer AEM's question, no i have not. i couldn't find my product over there (neither could i find any windows 7 compatible driver update). i've been looking over the iternet to find the latest driver for it, and concluded i already had the last one (it was no download site, couldn't find any download)

Pls try and obtain suitable driver from that site and install it. Vista drivers can work so don't exclude them.

it didn't work, i'll think i'll change the os back to XP and try windows 7 later on (with a new card, or a new computer)

``edit``

well, it was not windows 7 that caused the trouble, Windows XP seems to have the same problem.
i'm guessing a dead NIC (altough it is very suspicious it went dead after a OS installation)

thanks all for helping

Check Bios Clear CMOS

Have you checked all your bios settings like making sure LAN boot ROM is turned off maybe just clear your CMOS and load factory defaults and see what happens.

This whole thing has just seemed not right to me something is being overlooked in my opinion.

Are you sure that the "other" computers are not using static IP addresses if they were it would explain a lot, I say this because it was working fine until you loaded 7 and now you can't get it to work in XP again, if your network was set up to use static IP's no matter what OS you put on there it's not going to work without having an IP set up in the IP range of the network.

I am sure all the other computers use a dynamic IP address
After some reading and tweaking to my computer i was able to get internet directly trough the modem, i am still not able to internet using the router
the NIC is an integrated VIA Vt8237r
