Im looking for some help with the above model of machine.
For some reason I cannot seem to get any sort of network connection from it. symptoms are that there are no network connectivity lights until you shut down then machine then you have both amber and green lights solid.
I have tried firstly tried a known working cable (obviously) which made no difference, reseated all connections inside machine. Checked all settings in bios which relate to network and these were normal/enabled. Have checked drivers and such in device manager and these are all present.
After I had checked all these I assumed problem was down to system board which had a few raised caps. Have swapped out the system board for exactly the same type and this is still giving the same error.
I then removed all cables from machine and even CMOS battery overnight to see if it was just some bios setting. Tried again this morning but produced exacly the same fault.
Lastly I tried another HDD in this machine with a different build, It gave me 2 constant amber and green lights but still could not connect to a network.
If anyone could offer any advice this would be greatly appreciated.
Machine Is a 8183-D7G
Running Windows 2000 on both test HDD's (Yes I Know)

I would like to suggest you please download the updated Network adapter(Ethernet) driver from the below mentioned web link.
After installing the Ethernet driver Kindly kindly refer the below mentioned web link to download and update the BIOS.
Also check the issue after providing static IP address to your network card.
