p3 computer pci modem removed pci cards no longer receiving IP address.
Posted on 2006-11-29
I recently removed a pci modem from a running system. Since the removal and reboot the pci nic card is not working. When turning the pc on and running ipconfig from cmd prompt I get nothing.
It just says:
Windows IP Configuration
I look in Device manager and "Network adaptors" don't even appear unless I select: View -> "Show Hidden Devices". Then it shows the 3com nic but not the newly installed card.
I can ping 127.0.0.1 but I can't get an IP from the DHCP server or ping anything. I can't ping the statically assigned IP address from other pc's on the network. The only thing I haven't done is to check the LAN connection with another computer. But when this first happened I had a Link light on the original nic card (3com).
I'll try other pci slots in the morning.
