Hi can you help plz, i have been using my nvidia nforce controller for 2 years without a problem and had saved the driver install files.
I reformatted my pc recently but cant get back using my nvidia nic unless i use my NTLworld ambit modem via its usb connection.
I uninstalled all Nvidia drivers and reinstalled nforce driver(NF4w2k666E) selecting "NO" when asked whether i want to install nvidia firewall as i had major problems with this before. i selected to install SWE drivers aswell, I tried changing duplex from auto to 100 half & 100 full duplex and disabled the power option to switch it off to save resources but still nothing. I get limited or no activity. i did get cable unplugged with other drivers.
forced mac address in bios using mac address i got from using my usb connection, it says connected but cant ping anything or access websites using firefox or IE, and now i get this in CMD ipconfig /all

A couple of things i've had luck with in simliar situations:

1)reset your high speed modem 

2) unplug the AC adapter from both your modem and router (doesn't look like you have a router BUT if you did) and plug back in at similar times

3)in the command line: netsh.exe winsock reset

4)restart and try -- if it doesn't work then....

5)in the command line: ipconfig /release

6)restart and try

Try those and see how it works out

c:\> netsh ip reset    <---- Try that with a restart, if it doesn't work I have a long repair you COULD try if u'd like; basically rebuilding your TCP/IP stack

Thanks for your help, What i did was fail to reset my modem before switching between Usb connection & Ethernet, i just disabled 1 and enabled the other not giving enough time to reset the cable modem.

I unplugged everything cable modem power etc left it 10 minutes, plugged ethernet cables in, plugged power in WAITED for lights on modem to stop flashing (2 mins) then started PC up..

what a reflief!

thanks again
