|I'm running WINDOWS 7 . My onboard Ethernet adapter stopped working, which I use to connect to the internet, the ruter is working as I have a laptop that connects to the router wirelessly. now i try plugging in any Ethernet cable, it still shows red X on my local area connection. Here's what i did to solve it:|
uninstalled adapter, reinstalled the drivers
restarted 10 times
swapped Ethernet cables (verified cables work on other computers)
unplugged, replugged back in.
device manager shows good signs that the device is working. I have a good feeling it does, just something in the software maybe that I'm missing. i hope somebody has had this problem before and could point the way to an answer. thanks.
THE DEVICE LOOKS LIKE IT WORKS, ACCORDING TO THE SOFTWARE. BUT EVERY TIME I PLUG IN A CABLE, IT DOESN'T WANT TO FLICKER ANY SIGN OF CHANGE. I'VE USED GOOD CABLES FROM GOOD SOURCES. MAYBE SOMETHING I'M MISSING, REGISTRY? SERVICES? BIOS? IT DOES SEEM TO BE HARDWARE RELATED TO ME. NOT SURE IF THERE IS SOME CONFIG FOR THAT.
Motherboard is EVGA 680sli
