Troubleshooting Network Cards

Most cards these days are PCI plug-n-play devices, so it is exceptionally rare to get IRQ and resource conflicts. Begin with the basics – is the card seated properly in the machine? If Windows does not detect a plug-n-play card when first installed, this usually indicates a hardware issue.

The next most common issue is incorrect drivers. Windows can be slightly over enthusiastic with its use of drivers, and some times ends up installing an incompatible driver for a device. The easiest resolution for this problem is to use Device Manager to install the vendor-supplied drivers for your card. Once correctly installed, a “Local Area Connection” item will appear in “Network and Dial Up Connections”.
