Internet Connection Problems.
Hi all, i just bought and built a new computer from scratch and have everything up and runing nicely. The only problem ive found is that when i connect to the internet; everything i try to go on (websites, games, anything) they all tell me i am not connected. but when i get connect i get my 8MB connected sign and everything... the modem works fine because when i use it on my old computer there are no problems at all. it looks like ive also installed everything aswell... please help in any way you can, im almost head butting the wall with this problem. Heres my specs:
XP Pro with Service Pack 2,
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard,
AMD Athlon 64,
1024MB of dual DDR 400,
200GB Hard Drive (which i only get 132GB from for some reason),
Thank you very much for reading this and helping if you do .

Ok, I need more info so... Go on control panel (this must be in classic view) then click on Network connection then see if you have an "x" or a disabled connection. If so, then try reconnecting your internet by creating a new conection.
