See if another computer/nic will work properly in that port on the hub (it may be the hub that is at fault). Make sure that both the nic and the hub ports lights up.

If the other computer/nic works fine then the hub is fine and you need to look at the computer/nic which does not work in the same situation.

Does device manager show any conflicts? Which IRQ is the nic working on? Is the IRQ also being used by other resource intensive devices such as a video/accelerator card, a sound card, etc.? If the nic is not operating fully, then I suggest moving it to it's own IRQ (ie. not sharing it with other devices) and then retesting.

If the hardware is fine, then you need to check your network settings in WinNT/2000 (based on the fact that you're using ipconfig vs. winipcfg). Ultimately, verify ip addresses/ subnets/ gateway (if any) and workgroup/domain.

Make sure that DHCP is running properly by releasing and renewing a different machine's IP.

If you have a crossover cable, statically assign an IP to this machine and attach directly to a known good machine and make sure you have connectivity (tests the machine's settings and hardware).

With these settings, attach to the hub and test. Make sure you have a link light. If you have a non-switched hub (many of the cheaper ones are *not* switched), make sure the speed settings are correct, e.g. 100Mb half-duplex. If they are not then force them to the network's settings through the TCP/IP properties.

Hope that helps -

I had this problem back a year or two ago. I turn out that the either net card was not a bus either net but a token ring card. There are visually no differences on the card. I have asked many people that have work on the card and they say there is no real way of telling.
I found that there are two red components on the PCB that are close to each other.

If the card is a token ring it will not work on a hub at all.

I hope this gives you some insight.
