I just bought this bundle special on Newegg last night:
AMD Athlon 64 3400+ABIT K8T800 Pro+Kingston 1GB BUNDLE!!!
MB ABIT AV8 VIA K8T800 PRO 939 ATX
CPU AMD 64 |3400+ ATHLON 64 939P%
DDRAM 1GB KIT|DDR400 PC3200 -k RT
I put the thing togther, formatted windows XP and everything is fine (besides the fact that I need a new cd key for Windows xp activation is due in 30 days, that wouldn't prevent me from accessing the internet right?)
Anyway, I plug my ethernet cable into the Onboard LAN: VIA VT6122 Gigabit Ethernet and the orange light near the ethernet lights up. However, Windows XP detects no connection, and it doesn't really recognize my ethernet. IS there a software or driver install I have to do? Why wouldn't the ethernet be detected? Even as I put in the Verizon DSL CD it only gave me the option of running internet of USB and not the Ethernet. Any ideas?
