My GF has an older Aopen machine. I installed XP on her system and now Im getting a "network cable unplugged error". I've updated the driver (windows default for the adapter).

Things I've treid:

-Disabling and re-enabling the onboard network adapter in the BIOS
-Updating drivers (windows default)
-power cycling the modem
-replacing network/phone cords
-trying different jacks in the house.

The adapter is an onboard SIS 900 fast ethernet adapter, the connection is dsl from Aliant and the modem is a comtrend ct-301

when i restart the modem, the power light and the adsl/link light are on, but the lan/activity led does not light up.

I called aliant and they think it might be the modem.....would a incorrect driver version cause a network cable unplugged error? Is it possible that the onboard network adapter is not compatible with xp?

also, i just noticed that in the device manager, there is a scsi/raid controller that his having a conlict error (yellow/black exclamation point)

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

find out what motherboard you have and download the drivers for that board from the manufacturer website and install them.

It's an old Aopen, good luck finding any specs on the mobo. I would try buying a cheap PCI network adapter and use that puppy. They cost like ten bucks.
