Motherboard Network Adapter suddenly stopped working
Posted on 2010-11-22
I've got a ASUS P7P55D Deluxe Motherboard, it's got two on board Network Adapters / LAN.
They both used to show up in my Device Manger (one was PCI, one was PCIe, don't know if that makes any kind of difference or related to this question)...
Anyways, Last night took cover off computer, turned computer off, just moved some fans around. Turned computer back on and could not connect to the internet using the network adapter the ethernet cable has always been plugged into. To get on the netI have to use the only remaining Network Adapter (PCIe as it shows in DM). I"m just worried now if this one goes kaput that I'll be SOL and won't even be able to connect anymore.
Is there anyone that knows why it just quit working or how to get it back? i've tried to disable in BIOS, reboot, shutdown, then reboot with ethernet cable in the one that does not work without any luck.
Edit: MoBo is about 1 month old, I'm behind a router if that makes any kind of difference.
