I tried to connect to the LAN using Ethernet (again after updating the driver), although I am apparently connected I can't reach the Internet and can't see what settings might need tweaking.
I am fast running out of ideas and wonder whether the laptop's wireless capabilities simply aren't up to it?
I would be suspicious that the wired NIC is not set to recieve and IP address via DHCP.
On the wireless connection, There is a good possibility that the internal wireless card does not talk WPA2.
In any event I am finding that after rebooting the WPA2 code is no longer there and it has reverted back to Open WEP.
Thanks for any advice Graham Lets start with the wired connection.
If you run IPCONFIG \all with the wire connected, what do you get?
