not really sure where to put this, but since it's an Intel system I figure I'll put it here. Anywho, I reformated my bro's computer yesterday and reinstalled windows... everything went as it should but then when I got into windows and Installed the drivers for his network adapter I couldn't access the internet. It's not behind any routers (of my own) it's hooked directly up into the LAN port in my office but no dice. I know the port works bc I switched it w/ the one hooked up to my computer and it didn't change anything.

his specs:
Celly D 2.66 @ 3.0Ghz
Asus P5RD1-V mobo
1gb Corsair Value RAM
MSI 6600GT
SB Live Platinum (SB live value card w/ the live drive I bought off here)
WD 80gb ata hd
lite on DVD-Rom
Sunbeam nuuo psu

I installed windows just like I normally do so I'm not sure what went wrong. any ideas?

Did you run "network connection wizard"?
