      sky by broadband xp x64

      Hi,

      I can't get this to work has anybody else had any success?

      the .net files that come with it don't work, so I tried the ones from microsoft they installed but then sky by broadband claimed I need to be running xp and aborted???

      I have also tried it with .net 2.0 but then it just reinstalls 1.1???

      Thanks,

      Install what exactly? Its standard TCP/IP

      Should be no drivers required, only for your Ethernet NIC or your wireless card, which you most likely have them already.

      XP64 works fine as would any other OS.

      Hi pucewarrior

      Sorry I don't understand what you are saying I run XP x64 and have no problems at all, .net will have nothing to do with your connection problems as LuckyKnight has said is your Ethernet NIC or your wireless card installed or enabled?

      If you have the router connected to the PC via an Ethernet cable then you should see the Local Area Connection sitting in th e task bar by the clock, if its not there chances are its not installed or you need to change the settings in it to appear so goto > Control Panel > Network Connections.

      If you see a Local Area Connection icon then try clicking on it as its possible that is not enabled.

      If you don't see anything in there then you will have to install the drivers for it.

      Oops

      You are correct and that now explains his problem I think its a software issue as the SkyByBroadband software isn't x64 compatible

      Moved to the right forum
