No lights on the card may mean it isn't seated properly, the power supply isn't going to the slot, or the card itself is not any good. Try it in a different slot. The lights can malfunction, but not under normal use. Usually.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Well he ended up getting a new card, still a no go.

He just drove 2 hours to go to Best Buy, he bought a wireless router, and a USB wireless adapter...

Thinking maybe that electricity got to the mobo/ports...BUT why would it show them connected? Maybe a strong enough connection for that but not for actually working?

Try what superdave sed, plug the card into a different slot. sometimes the slot is bad, or just not connecting with the card fully.
