Its a new pc and I have the lan drives installed. Yes the internet cable is connected to the pc! There are still no connections available. I get a message that "Local area Connection" adapter is experiencing problems.
I have a P8z68-l LX motherboard and have installed its LAN plugin:
Intel I 25k 3.3ghz
Realtek Ethernet Utility V2.0.1.9 for Windows XP 32bit & XP 64bit & Vista 32bit & Vista

... What else am I missing?

What do I need to download to be able to network?
Yes I am a noob :pt1cable: .. Help me!
