  1. Ethernet frequently stops working for my desktop


    The ethernet for my desktop frequently stops working, while other devices on the internet still work. This issue sometimes solves itself or needs me to restart the wifi modem. Even after fixing the issue it frequently comes back and would need me to restart the whole process again. I was wondering if there is a solution to fix this.

    :)

    ethernet adapter stopped working?

    I don't really think it is functioning unless when it is lit that means it is there is a cable detection program in the bios and it isn't working right so owell bought a 12.00 gigabit ethernet card from the egg. I will rma it in a year or so if I get a new board. So I can sell it without any flaws and who knows maybe it will majically start working again.

    Ethernet frequently stops working for my desktop

    New build, all works but ethernet

    Anyway everything works fine except for the ethernet port. Under device manager it is listed as "Ethernet Controller", under the category of "unknown devices" (along with several other unknown devices).
