experts,

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:

"c:\> ipconfig

Windows IP Configuration


c:\>"

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).

suggestions?

I'll try other pci slots in the morning.

Remove the PCI NIC...then start system in SAFE MODE.. look through the DEVICE MANAGER and remove any instance of any network device.  shut down computer and re-install NIC..Boot system up and have drivers ready to install NIC card.

your nic card may simply be bad also, test it on another pc

<<the newly installed card>> So when you removed the modem you added something else? Does this indicate that the nic was already installed, or is this the new device? If the new device is not the nic, remove it and reboot. Nic OK now?

IN addition the new device you put in place of the modem may be causing a conflict. Remove it and try again.

I hope this helps !

I'd try moving the PCI slot the NIC is in and try that, if that doesn't work then i'd do what nobus said and test the NIC on another pc.
