Re: ME OS Upgraded Realtek 8139 NIC Card issues

Works on Vista or not? If it does up grade the other PC to Vista as well .....ME is outdated and soon if not already updates will no longer be provided by microsoft. Most likely ME does not support that NIC.

This happens when the wireless network card fails to get an IP address from the wireless router.
To get the router to issue your wireless network card with a new IP address, right click on the wireless card icon on the task bar and click Repair.

How to Check TCP/IP Configuraitons

The first step in the troubleshooting process is to check the TCP/IP settings. You can check it by using the IPCONFIG/All command on the command prompt. You will see the configuration results. If you see a blank configuration for a card this means then the card is not assigned any IP address. You can assign the IP address manually or via DHCP server. If you are using the DHCP server for assigning the IP addresses then you can use the following commands to get and release the IP address.
If the computer is still unable to obtain an IP address, then there are several things that can causing this problem such as bad network cable or NIC card, DHCP server might have assigned all the IP addresses from its pool, mis-configured TCP/IP settings, incorrect user name and password. You can try to add a new well configured machine to the replace the malfunctioning machine to see if the new machine is working with its settings. Also see if the driver of the NIC is properly installed or not. In case of driver's problem go to the vendor's website and install a new exact driver for the NIC.

How do i set up 2 IPs on my system so they dont clash??

The best way is to use two different NIC's (network interface cards) in one machine.
After you install the second NIC card plug a cable into it also so you will have two different cable connected to your router. If you are using DHCP it will pick up an available IP so you won't have any conflict with the first NIC card. If you want to set them up with static IP's open the properties of the first one and copy them exactly except for the IP address. Just give the second card the next number.
1st card:
2nd card:
Use the same Subnet, Gateway, DNS 1&2 and if your WINS is setup on card one use the same also.

Laptop states wireless adapter not installed and configured? worked before.

To check if the wireless card is bad or OK.
Go to Control Panel - Network Connections - Is the wireless network connection listed and if so is there a red X on this connection?
If so, right click on the wireless and click Repair - this may fix your problem, it forces the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address.
If it doesn't fix the problem then go to Control Panel - System - Hardware tab - Device Manager - scroll down to Network Adapters and expand and check your wireless card, is it Working and Enabled?
If has a yellow ? against it or not working then reinstall the wireless card driver.
If the wireless card is built-in check the BIOS to see if the wireless card is enabled, if not enable the wireless card and repeat the above steps.
If this doesn't fix your problem then the wireless card is faulty and you need a new wireless card. You can get a PCMCIA wireless card to replace the faulty wireless card. If the wireless card is built-in then disable the faulty wireless card in the BIOS before you install the new wireless card.

I need a proper configuration for my realtek 8139 ethernet family NIC. my network diagnostic tool indicated a failure in network adapter but the network connections indicated that i'am already connected....

Does the card have an IP address? From a command window (type "cmd" in the "run" line) type "ipconfig"
If it has any address OTHER THAN one beginning 169.254, it is working. If it has a 169.254 address it is not connected OR there is no device on your network giving out automatic IP addresses. Do you have other computers or devices connected?

Network adapter not installed or not present message


Restart your computer in safe mode. Press F8 while rebooting. Once in safe mode, go to Start - control Panel - system. Right click on and remove the network card devices (you might see more of them there than you do in normal mode). Then restart the computer.

It should detect the new card and allow you to install the drivers for it. If it still doesn't detect the new NIC card, try powering off the machine. Open the case, and make sure the card is properly seated inside the computer case. Press down on it firmly. Then restart and see if it detects the card.

If it doesn't detect the card, the card might be bad. If you have another card, I'd suggest trying a different one, to see if it recognizes a card that you know is good.

Try these things and let me know how it goes. Thanks.

Corrupted network drivers

what OS are you running,
Try removing it and reinstall
if it persists then try another card
update drivers and this should fix the problem

another thing also worth thinking about....

Maybe time to consider formatting the system and reloading it again with a fresh install.

ok look in device manager down the list to your wireless card and see if it is listed, if so check that there is not a red cross on it, if so right click and select enable. if a yellow exclamation mark driver not recognised with card. If it is listed and you are unable to enable it restart the pc and press F2 or DEL to enter your bios and on the peripherals menu, see if the wireless controller(if it is built in card) is enabled. If non of the above works, then the code 10 would normally be refering to a faulty peice of hardware.
