Hi. I have an issue currently. That being my network (LAN) card wont enable and it doesn't have any activity lights showing. It happened at random and I have no idea why I cant re enable it. I was in the middle of s skype call and it happened. It kept flashing between limited connectivity and no connection. I tried to delete the device and reinstall the drivers and have had no luck. If i right click enable it says enabling and then enabled. Still doesn't enable though.. Can anyone shead some light?

Are you sure it's not enabled? Could the problem be the cable to the modem/router or even the modem/router itself?




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

The Device Manager showed it as enabled. Try disabling it in the device manager and see if that changes anything. Is this an on-board NIC or an add-on card? Also, unplug the cable and to disable/enable the NIC.

More often than not, flashing between limited and no connectivity is a cable or router/modem issue, but not always. It is possible the NIC is borked.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Yush!

Found the issue, After the mega midnight Isolation test, I found that the issues lied with the pre made Ethernet cable.
Thanks Dynamix!
