Hello, I have a problem regarding my desktop computer. The thing is, when I plugged the Ethernet cable in my computer it only showed a red x  on the network icon I tried plugging my laptop on the ethernet cable and  it worked. there were no lights on the port when the cable was plugged in. I checked my drivers an they were all up to date. did some tests on the cmd and it showed that it worked properly. when I plugged my laptop to my desktop it worked. but I really don't want two  computers turned on at the same time as it would be a waste of electricity. I also checked the Ipv4 properties and the options obtain an IP address automatically and obtain DNS servers automatically the same as the ipv6.

try uninstalling it in Device manager and rebooting, see if that clears it up.
