Your probably reading this because of the topic description!
C'mon .. admit it! :whistle:

Well here goes: It did me absolutely no good to upgrade my system to FIOS.
Why, you may ask?

Well, it's because I haven't been able to connect the modem to the pc by ethernet cable since day one!

I am actually running this pc .. using a usb adapter, sitting not three feet away from the actiontec FIOS router! :crazy:

Here's the dumb question: Is the intel 82566dc-2 gigabit network connection that you see in the device manager .. a part of the pc ethernet port connector?

(Where you plug the cable into)

I ask because I can't connect with the ethernet cable and can only use the usb dongle.

The intel 82566dc-2 gigabit network connection shows a problem in DM (yellow yield sign).

I have disabled the thing.
Deleted and re-installed the drivers .. Everything and nothing works!

So now I need to know .. are the two things mentioned above related and if so .. should I just replace the card?

Thanks Everyone!

If this is the Gateway computer that you have listed in your profile there is one Network LAN port which you should use for the Ethernet connection. The port has LAN written on it.

When you plug it in

Do you see any Lights

Green Good
Amber Problem
No Light

If no light

ping 127.0.0.1 with the dongle disable temporary

if successful pings that means your NIC is working
if isn't successful please let us know.


What is the Status in the Device Manager

click Properties on that device

What does it say in the box

"Your device is working property" -is normal operation but the yellow shield that isn't not displaying that.

This is a advance thing

On the Advance Tab Go down to "Speed & Duplex" what is the Value of that item the default setting is Auto Negotiation

As soon as I figure out how to do a ping I'll try to follow your instructions and post the results.
(I am pc everything challenged)

There is no light from the port.

The message in device manager is: This device cannot start (code 10)

The intel 82566dc-2 gigabit network connection has a yellow yield sign beside it.

If all else fails, I may have found an easy solution:

Have tried over and over to install the drivers on this machine(vista 64BIT).

That is the first thing that I had tried 'before' asking in the forums.

Even when the Intel wizard says that install was complete .. device manager continues to show the old driver.

I've tried the install in safe and normal modes.

You will need to uninstall the driver in the Control Panel.

Try this, download the driver, you will have the option to Save or Run, choose Save.

Now uninstall the driver and then Run the file you saved.

I have found what appears to be my biggest PITA.

I have uninstalled the gigabit network connection driver .. over and over again so that I can install the updated one.

The problem is .. I CANNOT stop windows from reinstalling the old one, (or trying to) no matter what I do!?

Here are the steps that I follow and the PITA outcome: Uninstall intel gigabit network adapter.

"TRY" to install the new updated one.

Windows pops up with .. "Installing" software" and then .. "software update failed, please see manufacturer for details".

I THEN have to go back to device manager .. delete the D@MN thing AGAIN well .. you get the idea?

Endless cycle of frustration!
