Many of these utilities are vendor specific. So that if you have a Dell PC, the diagnostic program for the NIC is on the diagnostic partition of the hard drive.

Or, if you have an Intel NIC, then you can download a diagnostic program from their website.

Of course the program needs to be able to run on the computer you have, so the answer depends on the type of PC or computer you have.

What do you mean by status?

by Choppit In reply to test network card

Are you just looking for link speed/duplex status or trying to diagnose a suspected faulty NIC?

If you're looking to find out more about your NIC then maybe the chipset manufacturer has a tool to do this under Windows or alternatively if you have a live linux distro to hand (knoppix etc.) you can try looking at the output of dmesg/ethtool/ifconfig for info.
