Recently put a new Gigabyte motherboard with an A64 X2 4000 2.1G processor on my computer. Under my network connections I have two 1394 connections on the list, I do have a fire wire connection on the back, not hooked up though, but when I plug in the Ethernet to its connection there is no response as to acquiring a network address.
I click the status of the connections and no IP is assigned. Am I lacking a driver or is it maybe disabled from the CMOS? I know the router is working fine since my Xbox 360 gets on to the internet no problem. I double checked the quality of the cable that is running to the pc too.
