Do the usual scans

by bart777 In reply to Re;os version

Scan for viruses.
Run Spybot, AdAware, Etc and get any spyware out of the system.

I've seen some pretty nasty worms lately that are only getting picked up by the spyware removal tools.

One other thing to try is to go into the Device manager and see if the OS is finding the NIC. If you don't see it there you can have the machine do a search. It should come back.

If all of this fails you may actually have a bad NIC but I doubt it. Worst case contact IBM for further assistance.

Best of luck.
