Hi,

I am not very good with PC and hope someone can assist.

Everything was ok until this afternoon when I could not use the internet.
After fiddling for while I realized that there was something wrong with my Network Adapter.

Device Mgr shows "Ethernet Controller ?!"

I don't know how to insert image for u guys to view.

What do I do?
I don't even know the brand of it. Will someone kindly tell me if I can find that out somehow from the PC & fix the problem.

Thanks. Any help is appreciated.

First go into device manager and right click the network card and select uninstall. I'm assuming you're using xp so your card is pnp so it will reinstall itself on restart. So after you uninstall restart the computer. Then go back into device manager and see if the problem still exists. If so, did you make any changes recently to your computer like in stall new software or install new drivers for hardware?

Hi Both,

Thanks for yr reply.

I do not know the make & model of my desktop as it assembled by a friend 2 yrs ago.
Yes I did reinstall the driver for the network adapter as I always had a problem with it.

I still can't fix the problem.

Thank you.

Try using this free tool to take an inventory of your system: http://www.gtopala.com/index.html

We're looking for 2 things in that report:
1) The make and model of your motherboard, and
2) The make and model of any network cards installed on your system.

If you can't figure out which is which, upload a copy of the report from the above program (it's a lot of info!) and someone should be able to figure out what's going on.
