My system used to work fine but I lost internet connectivity using the LAN RJ45 connector. It shows a yellow light at all times. The same cable work just fine on another computer - so the issue is clearly with the onboard LAN.
I see the LAN in device manager and shows as functioning well.
When I try to connect though the diagnostic indicates I might have the wrong driver installed but deactivated. When I try to activate the card with Windows the dialog shows it is activated but remain inactive in device manager.
I tried a PCIe Wireless adapter but keep getting the same problems (tried with and without the LAN enable/disable in the BIOS). I tried both PCIe slots with the same results.
In all those all devices shows no conflict and functionning properly. The driver installed for the cabled Ethernet is a realtek PCIe lates available as of Feb 25 2017. Since this machine was built for Vista and now works on W7 Ultimate not quite sure if this drive works.
Would you have any suggestions for the following :
Which driver should I look for to have the RJ45 'GREEN'?
Why would the PCIe not be able to recognize the Wireless adapter and how can it be fixed?
Any suggestion on a motherboard that could replace this one ... pretty much in kind?
Thanks for your help
sees the card but keep telling me the pilot might be wrong
