No adapter in device manager
Problem: No network on Asus P5GD1-VM/Vintage motherboard, Windows Xp
checking BIOS options for onboard network card - it was enabled
instaling another network card
cmd - netsh commands
Microsoft fix it
uninstal antivirus sw
It was solved by taking HDD out from the case and placing it in new PC with the same type of motherboard.
Obviously problem was in faulty motherboard, not virus, software or Windows-related. Somehow it banished all network possibilities. However, network worked fine via USB network adapter.
