Windows 7 64Bit
(This issue has been seen in WinXP, Vista, and 7, both 32 and 64)
Local Area Connection - Unidentified Network - Network Cable Unplugged
Looking in the [Device Manager
], I see that the Ethernet controller is OK, there is no error or warning on the controller.
So, for the system, it seems to be OK.
I tried another cable, that is working on another system, as well as its router port.
And when I plug it in, the router Number cuts off.
So, there is something wrong with the port itself.
I have uninstalled the Ethernet Controller, and then Reinstalled it.
Everything went smoothly, and without issue.
Even got a [GREEN Check] signifying that the installation was a success.
However, it still showing:
(this is a video I made for the action of the controller)
This is a video that I made of it.
Also, this is a KB article that I wrote on how to resolve (so to speak) the issue, to at least get you back working.
I have done a lot of searching, and it seems that this is an issue with several DELL systems from around the time that the Dimension 9200 came out.
Most people had to get USB Network Cards, and some that were still under warranty, Dell replaced their motherboards for them. (I am not going to be that lucky)
I have also tried updating the BIOS, and updating the Ethernet Card as well, to 2012 drivers, and nothing seems to work.
I have thought about reinstalling the system, to see if maybe that will resolve the issue, however, I am not wanting to do that, unless I know for fact that it is the case, and that it is not a hardware related issue.
Any idea's on how to resolve this issue?
