I have an Acer Aspire 3000 and it has a SiS 900-based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter. My problem is that no matter how I try to connect the laptop to another desktop computer or to a cable-dsl modem it tells me that there is limited or no connectivity. When I try to repair it it says that the IP is not being reassigned. I used the normal cat5 ethernet cable. When I do ipconfig /release on the laptop dhcp is enabled and everthing else seems to be normal. All the settings for TCP/IP, etc. is set to automatic. Does anyone have a clue as to what may be causing this?
