What problem are you having?
 
Q: My network adapter does not work.

A: Some hardware on the list might need updated drivers in order to be compatible with Windows, and you might be able to download these drivers using the HCL. If your hardware is not on the HCL, Microsoft cannot guarantee that it will work with Windows. However, the manufacturer of the hardware might have an updated driver that will allow it to work with Windows. Contact the hardware manufacturer for further assistance.

If you started having problems after you installed a new device driver , you can roll back to the previous one using the driver rollback feature in Windows XP.

The driver for your device might be corrupted. Or, your driver might not be compatible with Windows XP, and you might need an updated version. There is no obvious way to tell if your driver is corrupted. Uninstall and reinstall the driver, and then try to use your device again.

To uninstall the driver for your device

  1. Open Device Manager .
  2. Double-click the device category to display all devices in that category.
  3. Right-click the problem device, and then click Uninstall .
  4. In the Confirm Device Removal dialog box, click OK .
  5. If you receive a message that prompts you to restart your computer, click Yes to restart.
  • To open Device Manager , click Start , click Control Panel , click Performance and Maintenance , and then click System . In the System Properties dialog box, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager .

When you uninstall an existing driver and restart your computer, Windows should automatically detect your device and display a wizard that helps you reinstall the drivers for it. If this wizard does not appear, reinstall a new driver manually.

To reinstall a driver manually

  1. Close any open programs.
  2. Start the Add Hardware Wizard .
  3. Click Next , and wait for Windows to search for Plug and Play hardware. Most newer hardware is Plug and Play, so you will rarely need to go beyond this step.
  4. If no Plug and Play hardware is found, you will be presented with a list of hardware types to choose from. Click Add a new hardware device , and then click Next .
  5. Click Install the hardware that I manually select from a list , and then click Next .
  6. In the Common hardware types list, click the appropriate hardware category, and then click Next .
  7. In the Manufacturers list, click the manufacturer of your hardware; in the Models list, click the model name.
    Or, click Have Disk if you have an updated or third-party driver to install for your hardware.
  8. Click Next , and then follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation.
  • To open the Add Hardware Wizard , click Start , click Control Panel , and then click Printers and Other Hardware . Under See Also , click Add Hardware .

If reinstalling the driver does not work, check to see whether there is an updated driver available for your device. You are likely to need an updated driver if you started having problems with your device right after you upgraded to Windows XP.

Therefore, you need to make sure which types of cable you really need.

 

Q: How do I differentiate 4pins and 6pins connection on the IEEE 1394 cable?

A:This case is normal because the modem/router is configured under 10base TX, meanwhile your network card support auto-negotiation between the speeds. So it is normal to happen.

 

Q: My internet connections show some abnormal flikering when I start browsing long?

A: This will happen when we plug from the router to a switch, it is because the switch is more dedicated on their bandwidth than the router itself, so it will sometime shows some abnormal flickering. This can be solve when we change the network card speed to 10base full-duplex mode.
