Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Ethernet card?? I called my internet provider to have them check my service as I am having problems connecting to the internet. They had me run a command prompt (ipconfig) which came back with the message "media disconnected". I was told that they believe that I have a problem with my ethernet card. I tried using the free downloads to "fix" the problem but my computer won't run the programs. Is this something I can fix myself or do I need to take it in to have the ethernet card looked at and possibly replaced?

Ethernet pci cards are very cheap, if its a desktop pc, turn it off, switch off at mains, but keep plugged in, then touch something metal to discharge yourself of any static.

Simply remove the side of your pc and unscrew the clamp that holds in the card, pull card out, push new card in gently then replace the clamp and screw.

Restart up pc and the card will be found automatically, then ask for the driver cd, run the cd, and your up and running again.

Cannot go to the internet


first you must have an ISP Internet Service provider which will provide you with a modem and leads you can choose either a dial up,usb,or an ethernet connection to connect to the net or if you have a laptop you can choose a wireless usb modem which can work on a desktop aswell once you recieve the modem just insert the disk provided and follow the prompts

if you already have set up the internet
the driver should be on the motherboard disc or the one supplied by your ISP internet service provider
check the password make sure its exactly how you provided to your ISP internet service provider make sure the Caps lock is on/off which ever applies to your ISP contract
check your computers settings ie: firewall also he might have a default internet setting
check the leads from the modem/router whether usb,ethernet make sure they are not bad/faulty and have secure connections and try different ports
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to network adapters + to expand any yellow ! ? or a red x will mean that the driver is corrupt and needs to be updated

hope this helps

No conneck to internet

during the setup process you will be asked for a password I suggest you make a log of all pass words used outside of your computer incase of memory lapses
if you have already done this
you might have put in the wrong password or user id check to make sure you have put these in correctly first make sure the caps lock is on/off what ever applies to your user and password id that you provided to your ISP

make sure your modem/routers settings are correct ie:password user name,firewall settings to allow your internet to connect also test the lead/s whether usb or ethernet you might check your modem first to make sure that you are getting a connection

Wireless lan just quiet working and yes the switch is on


first check in device manager if there are any conflicts if so go online and download the lan drivers to install. if this does not work you will have to buy a ethernet card. usually no drivers needed if running xp or newer. if that does not work a total restore is inevitable.. good luck

Network Card


Yes the network card is the same ethernet card. If your intel pro/100 is onboard try to re install the driver from the motherboard drvier. Check also in the manager device it the network device have a complex to the other device. Follow this, Click START then RUN type DEVMMGMT.MSC then enter check if the network adapter have a yellow question mark. If you found the network adapter right click and uninstall it.and click the ACTION and click SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES. After the installation finished try to connect to the internet. If still the same even you input the correct ip in the network configuration. Buy a new LAN card it's not expensive, because usually the onboard lan is easy to damage or not working properly you can installed and configured it but you cannot connect to the internet.

Terrible slow internet connection after installing SP2


If you are sure it is a motherboard problem relating to the on board ethernet connection, purchase a PCI slot ethernet card and see if using the card manufacturers drivers are better than the motherboard ethernet drivers. Although i'm not sure how a slow connection is the motherboard problem, it maybe that it's SP2 thats the problem. Have you checked the driver that is used for the onboard ethernet connection, it maybe you need to re-install original motherboard ethernet driver you got with it.
