Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
DSL/Internets/new build/grey hairs issues

So I built my dear grandmother a new computer for her birthday, and everything is smooth as babyshit... except for the innermets. She's running a Verizon DSL connection, which is working fine except that her computer can't create a connection. Checking the Network Connections yields a 1394 Connection, but there's no Local Area Connection listed and I can't figure out how to create one--any of the network wizards that I've tried are no help.
I've gotten all of the available motherboard drivers from Gigabyte's website, and they installed without a hitch. However, the Device Manager still lists an "Other PCI Device" that's missing a driver. This could be the culprit, but without an internet connection I can't even search for it. I'm not sure what said PCI Device could be, either.
Right now I'm at a loss. I even tried running the Verizon setup disc in a lame attempt to just get the thing configured, but it hung on the modem test. What could I do to get this thing working?
