I have optiplex 330 with sticker. Has vista sticker and key that was gifted to me.
Is however running xp.
Works, will ping address all four as connected. However will not make internet work. Times out as cannot connect to anything.
The machine is excellent and so quiet. I could really like it.
I do not know what to do.
Willing to go back to vista.. Stuck.

If nothing is responding, then network is hacked up. If you are not running XP SP3 then it is a sticky thing! XP is out!

Good luck getting an 7 load!

May I suggest a new piece of hardware?

Let us know!
