Networking Problem

I have a Linksys router with Comcast cable service, everything was working OK till I formatted my HD, now when I have the router connected XP says a cable is unplugeed. works OK without the router. The Only other thing on the network is a Tivo with can see the router & connected to the Internet OK so it's an XP problem. Any help is aprreciated.

Did you try another port on the router?

Should have nothing to do with XP. The issue is between your Router and your Network Card. Remove and reinstall your NIC with it's latest drivers and then reset power to the router. Maybe your using different NIC drivers after the reformat.

go into device manager and check your settings, you probably have something set wrong

I'm still having the same problem, I had figured it was the ethernet carde but I didn't want to replace since I was getting a new computer. I just got a new computer & I still have the same problem. Any ideas?

try to connect cable directly to pc, avoid router, if that does it, then your problem is with router (cables?),
if not, then i don't really know...worth a shot

Are you getting link lights on your NIC and router? If yes, then it is an XP/configuration/driver problem. If not, then either the port on your router, the NIC, or the cable is bad. Swap out the cable first, of course.

I'll also say the cable. You may have inadvertantly switched the cat5 cable with a crossover cable (which comes packaged with many routers).

It's not the cables I've tried a few. The only other thing I think it could be is the router itself but it works for the Tivo though which is weird. It also did suddenly start working a couple days ago but only for like an hour.
