I recently got a new router from my isp. I plugged it into my pc using ethernet cable, but couldn't get the machine to recognise it. I spoke with netgear customer support who advised me there is a fault with my computer and it doesn't recognise my lan port.
The motherboard (where the port is located) is 3 months old. Its a gigabyte GA-M61pm S2. No lan in device manager. no light when cable is plugged in.
So I went and bought an ethernet card. Installed this. Still no LAN in xp under Device manager. No light comes on in either port when I plug the cable in.
Anyone got any ideas? Im at a total loss so would find any suggestions you might care to throw at this helpful
