  8. [ubuntu] Re: Can't connect to internet in Windows on Dual Boot System

    I should note that this problem has been resolved. I did not think that ZoneAlarm Firewall was running because its icon did not display in the system tray (it normally does that). However, when I...

    Re: No internet in XP

    ZoneAlarm was running in the background (despite not showing up in the system tray) and apparently blocking the internet. Everything works fine now. :popcorn:

  14. [ubuntu] Re: Can't connect to internet in Windows on Dual Boot System

    It doesn't report any problems. I tried to update the driver but that failed, probably because I don't have internet. I'm going to try connecting with my network card again and see what that does.
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Can't connect to internet in Windows on Dual Boot System

    It's wired. I have a network card (wired as well) but I use the LAN port on the motherboard (integrated network adapter). I did try using the network card LAN port but it didn't work either.
