2000 pro will not connect to internet

By wordmaster1 ·
I just built a machine, Abit AX8 mb, AMD Athlon 64 3200. The lan is onboard. About a month ago I built two similar machines and everything worked great.

I installed 2000 pro sp3, all the mb software and drivers, everything works great except no internet. I am connected to DSL through Alltel with a Speedstream router and Netgear hub.

Two other computers, one with the same version of 2000 and another with dual boot 2000/98 are hooked up to the same hub and connect fine.

In network, have client for MS networks, file and printer sharing for MS networks, and TCP/IP set up with the proper network adapter showing up. I have uninstalled and reinstalled all of these.

Settings for everything are the same as the two computers that are working. I have Zone Alarm Pro and have tried all settings and have disabled it so that it does not start up at all.

I have tried starting IE and typing in which will take me to router admin on the other computers. Get "page not found" and "no internet connection". Same as with any web site I try to go to.

Have tried different cable from hub to machine, have tried powering hub and router up and down, have checked bios for anything that might have a bearing or did not look right.

Everything shows to be OK in device manager and other places. No conflicts.

Any and all help greatly appreciated. Thank you.
