    NIC Troubles


    I'm having some trouble with my Network Interface Card. I was on Windows one day playing a game, and my computer reboots suddenly. When I rebooted up, I couldn't get online. I checked to see if my modem was working and what not, and everything was fine. So I started checking my network setup, and PGPNet's Virtual Adapters (which I used for both Windows and FreeBSD) drivers had been corrupted, so I tried to update them but it didn't work. So I uninstalled PGP, and my NIC wasn't being detected at all. I took it out, inserted it into anothe PCI slot, but it still wasn't being detected. I manually updated the drivers but still nothing.

    I'm not sure what's wrong here, it seems as though my NIC isn't being detected by Windows, and the manual installation doesn't work. I tried moving it all over into different PCI Slots but it still isn't working. Any thoughts? Atm, Im running through a USB connection, so I have temporary internet until I can figure out what's wrong with my Network Interface Card. I also installed PGP again, and the only adapter it can bind with is my Modem...

    I would really appreciate any help that anyone can give me.

    My NIC is Kingston 110TX Fast Ethernet Adapter

    Thanks.

    sounds like the nic is fried. have you tried a different nic, or tried yours in a different machine?
