I just moved to a new apartment with two cable internet wall jacks. The one in my room didn't seem to be working, so I ran a cable to the other jack (my roommate's) and I can access the net fine with that one.

I called the apartment complex's tech people and they sent a guy with his laptop. He proceded to connect his laptop to the jack in my room and it worked for him. He then told me I probably had a faulty network card and should buy a new one. But every store I've been to said it's probably a settings-related problem.

Thoughts? I'm running WinXP and have had my network card for about 3 years. It's a NETGEAR FA311 fast ethernet adapter. On the box it says it is compatible with XP, but the documentation inside makes no mention of XP-compatibility. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.
