Network Card problem

By joe ·
I have recently moved my desk Top PC from my old office to my new one. When I did so, the Netgear FA310tx network card stopped working properly. I would not work at all on one wall mounted data port for my network and would only work on another one in the same area if I unplugged the patch cable from the wall and replugged it in. I thought the card was bad and purchased a new one and the same problem is happening. I removed the new card and re-installed it in a different PCI slot adn it still does the same thing. I had the people who wired the data system come in and check the data ports on the walls and the patch panel and hub and all those are working. PLease HELP!!!

I dont think that your NIC is causing the network connection problem.

Try using a different patch cable. Maybe that cable is defective or "crossed" type.

If it still does not work, then try connecting a different PC and see if it works.

Hope this helps!

I have tried three different patch cables (sorry,should have said that before) also the other PC that is in my office works fine on both data ports. It is just my PC that is having the problem.

It may be this simple for you. Release your IP address. Your IP address appears to be locked. The address is not contained in the card, but the system itself.

Check the driver settings (speed, duplex, frame type) on the NIC. If they are auto negotiate try setting them manually. If manually set try auto.

The new NIC that you bought--is it a Netgear FA310tx as well? If so, how about trying an entirely different brand/model? (That may be a dumb question, but that wasn't specified.) :)

Also, when you re-installed the new card, did you uninstall the drivers as well and started from scratch?
