I am working on a donated P4 Gateway for a charity. The NIC is Linksys LNE 100 TX (driver Linksys LNE 100 TX Fast Ethernet Adapter (LNE 100 TX v. 4) It has an ethernet socket on the motherboard and the Linksys is a PCI card. I am assuming that the card was added b/c the onboard was not working but don't know for sure. I did try the following with both sockets.
The connection (through a router) does work when it is connected to another computer. Device manager does not show any problems. I did ping 127.0.0.1 and no packets lost. When checking IP through cmd, the IP 169.x.x.x also sometimes get "media disconnected" message. I did move the card to another slot with the same results. I went into network connections and changed ethernet IP to a made up static IP, saved it, then changed back to dynamic. Under command, I released the IP, then renewed IP but only get 169.x.x.x
Any ideas of what I can try the next time I come in to work?
Thanks for any help.
