You said you tested it in two pc's so the second one was having the same problem or not?

It's very possible that the network card that you have tried is shorted in the board and you cannot see it with the naked eye.

This does happen on occasion and for the cost of most "cheap but good" network cards, I would cut my losses and purchase a new one.

Hope this helps,

Have you tried the network card in a different slot ?
