      Newbie trying to install mothers Sagem.....

      Hello,

      I have had a read of the forums but haven't came across an issue I seem to be having when installing my mothers new Sky Broadband router (Sagem)

      I followed all the instructions and getting correct lights and connected wirelessly to my HTC Hero no problems. Now my mother has a non wi-fi enabled PC running XP so I hooked up the ethernet cable (again lights correspond with recommended instructions) but not getting on-line.

      I will be back across this evening with my own laptop to get into the routers settings via 192.168.0.1.

      The activation date has passed.

      Would she have been sent any password? (She is also out of the country until the w/e)

      Anything glaringly oblivious that I have overlooked?

      Cheers.
      Doug.

      As long as there have been no manual changes made to the LAN properties on the PC there should be no problem. Just plug in the ethernet, click an internet icon and it should go on line.

      Check in the LAN properties that it is set to obtain a IP automatically.

      Apart from the email password, which is required to set up an email account, no passwords are required to get on line.

      The username and password to enter the router settings are admin and sky respectively.

      Just checked the Ethernet connection is Enabled on the computer. Look in Connections (I think, haven't used XP for several years) and see if it's Enabled, if not right click on the Connection and select Enable.

      Back over and online wireless on my own laptop with no problem

      I have checked the device manager on the PC and "Other Devices>Ethernet Controller,SM Bus Controller and Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller" all have yellow question marks in front of them.

      Why should I be getting issues with these drivers?

      "Other Devices>Ethernet Controller,SM Bus Controller and Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller"
      I would say you need to reinstall the chipset 'drivers'. Find out what the chipset model is and go to the manufacturers site and download the latest version and install them

      I would guess that it is an Intel chipset. If it is go here for further information and links to the inf files. If it is not an Intel you will have to identify the board and go to the manufacturers site.
      http://www.intel.com/support/chipset...ets+infmain&#u

      When you have done this, you may need to reboot to have the drivers installed automatically or the may just install with the chipset.

      PITA!!

      Ran Everest Ultimate after transferring it from my HTC Hero.

      Chipset board is nVIDIA nForce2 IGP.

      You will get them here -
      Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

      If he is running XP installing Sp3 corrupted some Nvidia drivers, meaning they had to be re-installed.

      nVidia MCP2 LAN controller driver is what I think I need.

      Above link doesn't seem to support the nForce2 which this PC is running.
