Hi,

I have recently decided to dual boot between XP MCE and Server 2003 Enterprise Edition. The installation was a success, however, I am unable to connect to my router on Win 2k3 and the internet. XP works perfectly though. I did some searching, and I found out 5 things to resolve this problem:

1) Disable DHCP - Disabled already
2) Install the NIC drivers - Installed and updated
3) Disable "Network Load Balancing" - I have no clue how to disable this
4) Disable Internet Explorer's "Improved" security system
5) Call tech support

I am just asking for some way to disable Microsoft's Network Load Balancing (Because someone said that after disabling it, it worked perfectly) and/or help me figure out why it won't connect. I have manually edited the registry's DHCP and it STILL doesn't work.

Regards,
idontknow

Let's see this from the working XP system and the Server.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

Note that there is a space before the -n or the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the - or / in the following commands.

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I think I figured out the problem. Its missing a driver. Specifically, the NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller driver for Win 2003. Could someone please provide me a link as to where I can find it?

I was about to tell you that it appeared your hardware was missing, haven't been here lately. I'd start with the motherboard manufacturer, and then try the nVidia site.
