disappearing NIC

By NatCat ·
Hi guys,
I have a 2000 machine that ever so often disables itself.
I can fix the problem by simply re-enabling the card in device manager, but I was wondering why it happens.
Does anyone have any ideas ?

I'd first try reinstalling the drivers for this... and monitoring to see if it happens again.

If it continues to happen, then I'd suspect that the nic is beginning to fail.

If this NIC is in a PCI slot (of course it is) swap to another PCI slot and reinstall.

I had this same problem. It turns out the NIC was going bad and finally it just died and I couldn't bring it back.

I have faced a similar problem with my PC. I would suggest you to try with a different NIC card and check if the problem still persists. Also try interchanging the NIC on both the PCI slots. If it reoccurs, then the problem is with your motherboard's PCI slots and not with the NIC.
