This is a very odd problem. My network card shows up in the device manager and the Network Neighborhood properties as a properly working device, but does not show up in the pulldown menu when I run "winipcfg" I get a good link to the router as both the router and the network card have steady link LEDs. Internally the card will both take a manual IP address and can be set for DHCP. I have reloaded the drivers, installed a newer card, recovered the system on the computer twice. I did ship the unit across the country, but everything else works fine. When I pull up the WINIPCFG I get PPP and NDSI 3.0 as options but not the network card itself. I have contacted many people on this and no one has every even heard of it.

1 When I choose "obtain IP address auto maticly" the NDIS will not take the IP address from the router like the other computer on the network.
2 If I assign the IP Gateway Subnet Mask et it shows up in WINIPCFG correctly but the computer will not connect to the web.

If you are sure that the cable and speed are correct on both ends of the network cable then I think I would go into settings/control panel/networking and remove tcp/ip then restart the PC and reinstall tcp/ip.

Being off for a long time may have allowed the
battery to discharge and the CMOS to change. Have you checked the setup?
You said you had changed out the NIC. Can you install the new NIC in a different slot?
Are you sure you are installing the correct driver for the card? When you install the card does it find it by itself or do you have to tell it about it?
Does the Device Manager show it as working with no conflicts?
