If the device is functional but not listed under "Network Adapters" in the device manager, it may be listed under "Other devices" as an "unknown device" or ethernet adaper. I would suggest using another computer to go to support.hp.com. There type in the model of your laptop and "drivers" for a keyword. It should then take you to a support area where you can download the drivers for your network card, IF it is functional.

Cannot connect to the internet. When I open the device manager, in the 'other device' drop down menu, Ethernet controller was missing. My laptop was Packard Bell easynot NJ65


Hi erolisgarrot,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the operating system on your Packard Bell easynot NJ65 (whether Windows Vista or Windows 7).

Anyways, PLEASE CLICK HERE to find the Ethernet Controller driver.

Please select Notebook > Easynote > EN NJ65 > select the appropriate Operating System then look for Lan.


Hope that helps. Please let me know if you have questions. Thank you for using FixYa!

Internet not connecting?


May be your Ethernet Controller is not installed. To confirm this, go to "Control Panel", click "System" from there look out for "Device Manager", click it, check "Network Adapter" to confirm if your Ethernet controller is installed or not. You might also see "Others", in the "Device manager" where you will find only components of your Laptop that are not installed with a yellow exclamation mark.

If you have confirmed that your network adapter is not installed, then you wil have to install the drivers.

Please give me feedback.

Take care.

If you are using Windows XP, go to Control Panel > Network Connections. Right click on Local Area Connection and then click Enable. (This is only applicable if the ethernet port is disabled).

Also, you may go to Device Manager (Right Click My Computer > Manage > Device Manager) and then check if the ethernet is disabled or has a question or exclamation mark.

If both dont work, your ethernet controller is broken.
