Nic ethernet card not working via rj45 port seria port ok to web

Is this a recently installed card? If so, the "usual" procedure is to install the drivers first, then shut down the computer, install the card, then reboot and let the Windows "found new hardware wizard" run. (Otherwise you may end up with a generic driver.) If you installed the NIC in another manner, uninstall the driver first.
Of course, manufacturer's directions should be followed when possible.
If it is an existing card, you can go to the manufacture's website and download the latest driver. Before installing the new driver you need to uninstall the old driver (it may have become corrupted) through device manager (right click "my computer", select "properties" select the "hardware" tab then "device manager". Then check the box next to "network adapters". Right click your NIC and select "uninstall".

First try to plug in your Cam into the system and when it detects and pops 'windows found new hardware and installing software for it' put in the cd into the drive and choose to find/search the drivers location of the Cd.

If it doesn't not sovle your problem then first put in the CD and install any EXE file (most probably the driver installation file) and restart your PC and then after that connect your Camera to the System hopefully this would solve your problem inshallah.
