Question about Acer Computers & Internet
My desk top will not detect the ethernet cord ....how do i fix this on my own
Replace the cord or you may have a faulty nic card. this seems to happen to me quite a bit since I am in the IT industry. If your nic is "onboard" the mainboard, they are prone to fail or stall out without warning or reason.
Here is a good test. Unplug the computer (yes phsically unplug it, then press and hold power button for 10 seconds. This discharges all the capacitors on the mainboard, which seems to fix alot of problems I come across with hardware, especially nic cards or onboard nics.
Now turn it back on. You could be jacked in to a faulty port on whatever the other end is plugging into as well. It's hard to tell with the limited info you posted.
