    LAN (Windows XP)

    One of the users at work can not connect to the network drives, went to check the LAN settings, there is not LAN connection, for some reason it just disappeared.

    Re: LAN (Windows XP)

    I'm not sure whether you are asking a question or just telling us something!

    Where is there no LAN connection?
    Have you tried re-installing it?
    Have you checked the NIC is working properly under Hardware?
    Have you checked the network setup under Network Connections?

    i am asking a question. Under network connection there is no LAn connection, how do you set up a new one how can you tell if the network card is working? Under device manager there is no network dapater listed.

    Normally there are LEDs on the NIC which should indicate it is on, and if there is any network traffic on its connection.
    Can you see anything there?
    Are you using a router? Are the connections between the pc and it OK?

    CP > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Device Manager > Network adapters..
    Anything showing there?
    If not seen, run the Add Hardware wizard.
    If seen, does it show as working properly?
    If seen but not working, try running the Troubleshooter or reinstall the driver(s)

    If there is no network connection shown, I suggest you run the New Connection Wizard, and check the Networking Forum - there should be plenty of links and tips there - see <post:=507,360>post 507,360</post:> for example. Once you determine your hardware is working OK, it may be better to repost in that forum for network-specific questions.
