I have a stand alone computer that I built a year ago. I very seldom connect to the internet with it. I think I may have hooked it up to the internet twice for updates, but the last time was around 5-6 months ago. Now when I hook up the eithernet cord, nothing happens. I've tried restarting the computer with it connected and looked at all the configuration settings for the internet in Windows XP pro, ..........nothing. Don't know what I'm missing or what could have changed in the past couple months. Any suggestions?
