I really need help. I have been having problems lately, with a DSL connection. I used to run on ethernet, but then it stopped working for some reason, and I was never connected, so I tried through USB, and everything works when I hook my modem up through USB, but when I go ethernet, nothing. Then, I installed a new network card, and it was just working, and then I got the same problem, and now Im running it off of stupid USB again. When I tried to connect to msn messenger it said something about my proxy not allowing a direct connection to the internet??? If someone can help me out, that would be cool, IM on windows xp home btw......thanks.
