Hi, I'm currently using a USB ethernet adapter to connect myself to the internet as when I connect a wire to my onboard LAN it just keeps saying that there's no wire plugged in even though there is. I have looked over Google but the only similar problem I can find is where peoples connection keeps getting dropped but does connect sometimes, this isn't the case with mine. I have tried the trick of setting the speed & duplex but that didn't help The weird thing is that I got it to connect for a bout one second when i set a custom IP and set the duplex thingy in the configure section, but I think that's just a Windows bug or something as I cannot get it to connect at all any other way. I have reinstalled the drivers, disabled and re-enabled in the BIOS etc. and researched on Google for some fixes but have found nothing Anyone got any idea why it's doing this please? --Edit-- Also, the onboard LAN is fine in the device manager, it is not giving any errors at all and also the drivers install perfectly. So the device is being fully picked up but I can't get it to recognise it's plugged in. The cable is 100% working as I'm plugged into it right now using a USB ethernet thing. Thanks, Craig.
