Re: unable to get an ip from dhcp
If you are showing a connection (XP will have 2 computers in the bottom right-hand corner with a red x to show not connected), and you're still not getting an IP, then it could be the card, but more than likely it could be the cable, or the router itself. Some things to check:
Are the correct drivers installed for the network card? Check device manager.
Have you used that cable with any other connection? If not- try it.
Have you tried a different port on the router? If not- try it.
Let us know what you see/find out. Ane we'll go from there.
