    Unable to connect to lan


    Even when there is no activity light,data transfer rate is 1 byte.
    Reinstalled nic drvs.
    pings to local host,but cannot connect to other pc's/server.
    Is it nic or port/cable?

    You are missing a ton of information for anyone to figure out what the problem is. So it can be all three. You might want to include the following:

    Static or dhcp addresses?
    results of pinging 127.0.0.1 [loopback address of the nic]
    results of a ipconfig at a command prompt

    Troubleshooting suggestions:
    Use a known good patch cable
    Switch to a different port in the switch
    Swap the nic [same nic will mean you won't have to reinstall networking]
    Use a known good pc to connect to the same wall port being used and see if you can connect.
