NIC Card

Good afternoon.  My NIC card no longer shows the status lights flashing when plugged in.  I have plugged in the same cable to a different computer and the lights come right on.

I have disabled; re-enabled.

I have completely removed the NIC from device manager (windows 7) and rebooted and reinstalled the NIC.

Are there any settings in the NIC settings that turn the NIC off from sensing the fact that it is plugged in?

Two more things...

1.  No internet connection and I did used to have one.

2.  Nothing indicating a disconnected cable even when I disconnect the cable.

Thanks...
Joe

Sounds like a bad NIC. The only setting I always disable is allowing power management to control the NIC. You don't want that on. In Device Manager on the properties of the NIC, power management, turn that off.

Is it an onboard NIC? If so, you could try updating the firmware and drivers, but if it still behaves the same, definitely has gone bad.
