Mandriva One - Cannot get network working

So I installed Mandriva One, I wanted to go online to get the drivers for everything. The thing is, I cannot for the life of me, get it to connect to the internet.
Auto DHCP info

a8a_mx Asus Micro ATX
Onboard Lan
Geforce FX 5200
AMD XP 64 3800

Any tips would help. Thanks again.

Most people don't need to install drivers on their own because they are included in the OS (unlike in Windows). The exception is usually the official drivers provided by the likes of Nvidia which are not included in most distros because they are proprietary. As for the network connection, have you tried reconfiguring it using the network tool in the Mandriva Control Center? If its a DSL or Cable connection you share with Windows, you may need to reboot the modem or router.
