It has to be the drivers.

I had this one system from a customer. Had a realtek network card. Almost every driver I tried Windows would take, it worked once then every time after that it would only connect at 10 mbs and not get online. When I finally found the right driver it worked.

If it is a store bought machine did you get the drivers from their website? I have a feeling we need ot make sure to get the right version.

The computer was bought at a store a while ago. But the other network card is bought and self installed into the comp. With no CD for drivers.
The motherboard network thingy should need drivers. but i don't have them i think.

I got this comp from a friend. and he said now that the motherboard internet worked fine like a month ago.
But the HDD crashed so he gave it to me. And i'v installed 2 new HDD's in it and so on.

He did have the CD for all the drivers for the machine but he trashed them a while ago.

Then what you need to do is download the newest drivers for either card, put them on a thumb drive and get them onto that system.  :wink:

Put it in your system and test it. Hook the network cable to it and see how it does. If it works check what driver is installed for it.

Just about dinner time for me :wink:

That card is allready in my system and it was the card that was working but after i restarted my computer it did not.


Setup:
External Card = Realtek

Motherboard builtin card = 1394 Net Adapter

When i try to repair 1394 Net Adapter it says: "Failed to query TCP/IP settings of the connection. Cannot Proceed"
It also says 400Mbps.

It's not sending any Packets or anything. When i enable it, it says Connected. But cannot access internet.

I's 02:02 at me so it was bed time a while ago for me.. But i really want this to work.

But i think the drivers for 1394 Net Adapter is not working.

Like I said 1394 Net Adapter is not your network card on the motherboard. 1394 is a firewire adapter.

Go to the device manager. DO you have unknown hardware in there? You may just need to download the proper drivers for the motherboard network card.
