Hi
I am running an intel DP65LT mother board that has...







On-Board LAN Intel® PRO 10/100/1000 Network connection


I have wired up an home network and the on board LAN will not connect to anything.
So I then installed a 10/100 network card and it works fine.
I have check and if I set both the on board LAN to enabled and the network card to enabled  then connect the network cable to the on board Lan...I get nothing.
But when I connect the cable to the network card then it acquires the network and gives me the expected 100mps connection.
So what am I doing wrong ?
Doesn't seem much point in having on board LAN if it don't work.
thanks
Richard
P.S...What is the word on the NAS200 by Linksys ?...good or bad?

Without knowing your setup or operating system.

It's fairly common to have to install drivers even for onboard LAN.   If your are running Windows,  have you checked Device Manager to see whether it has a driver loaded etc .

Usually the on-board network adapter requires drivers to be loaded after the OS is installed. The drivers come on a CD that was distributed with the motherboard.

Hmmmm,   difficult for me to guess exactly what the problem is,   but I know I've had success in the past by deleting the "offending item" in device manager,  re-booting and re-installing the device.

Hi
I think I am getting mixed up here.My device manager shows under Network Adaptors...
1394 Net Adaptor
Realtek RTL 8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernat NIC

I know the Realtek is the network card I installed but is the 1394 Net Adptor the onboard Lan or not?

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong,  but I thought 1394 Net Adaptors were Firewire,  my understanding is that it is shown as a network adaptor because firewire can be used to network two computers together.

Is your on-board lan enabled in your BIOS ?
