Question about Dell Ethernet Card Network Adapter
I have a Dell 4700 Computer with an integrated Intel PRO/100 VE network card. My OS is Windows XP Home Edition.
When I plug my ethernet cable into the port, the connection is not detected. I installed a Linksys LNE100TX NIC card into my PC, left the ethernet cable plugged into the integrated Intel PRO/100, and then the network was detected on the Intel PRO/100.
I removed the LNE100TX NIC and the network was no longer detected. I reinstalled the LNE100TX NIC card and the network was again detected when connected to the integrated Intel PRO/100. I disabled the Linksys LNE100TX NIC, uninstalled the driver, powered down my PC and removed the Intel LNE100TX NIC from my PC. Powered it backup and the integrated NIC (Intel PRO/100) still detected my network. Great problem solved! NO!
I powered the PC back down and installed a sound card in the slot that the LNE100TX NIC was installed. Powered my PC backup and now no network connection detected again by the integrated Intel PRO/100 NIC. I powered my PC back down removed the sound card and reinstalled the Linksys NIC. Powered up, now the ethernet connection is only recognized when it is plugged into the Linksys card. The integrated PRO/100 won't recognize the connection at all.
If anyone can help I would really appreciate it. I would like to get my PCI slot back so that I can install a sound card.
Thanks, in advance for your help.
Check for the pins inside the integrated NIC to check if the pins are bent / disfigured. Does not look like the additional card is making any different, looks more like a moving NIC cable is makin the difference.
Lemme know if this helped!
