Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx will not connect to internet


Recommended Posts

Is my network card bad?

I cannot get onto internet. I have Windows XP and:

Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx gigabit Controller (Network adapter).

I have already reinstalled the driver.

Device Manager says: This device is working properly.

How can I find out if maybe a setting is wrong?

Some more information would be nice, for e.g. do you need to input any IP address, subnet mask, Default Gateway, DNS... or you get them automatically?

Did you check your modem/router?

type ipconfig/all into Command Prompt and check the configuration.

Check if Services such as DHCP Client and DNS Client are stopped. If yes, set them to Automatic.

Thank you for replying and trying to help.

Everything is supposed to be done automatically.

The modem is working. I use it to log in with my old Windows 98 computer.

Everything was working on XP for about 2 months (when I first got this computer) until about a week ago when failed to connect first thing in morning.

It shows an error: Local Area Connection, Speed 100 Mbps, Limited or no connectivity.

I went through troubleshooting and reloaded driver.

ipconfig shows Dhcp Enabled = Yes

Autoconfiguration Enabled = Yes
