New NIC needed? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
D-Link, Netgear - yuk. Just don't bother - they all use generic crappy chipsets & drivers but charge extra for the name.

Either buy a low-end Realtec crap NIC that will work (and is the chipset that most of the D-Link etc cards & onboards use anyway), or get a proper NIC with an Intel or Broadcom chipset on it. The Intel Pro/1000 CT is a good card, as is the PT (look on eBay for old Dell or HP OEM cards too).

Have you checked to see if the NIC is enabled in the BIOS though?

The onboard LAN is enabled as far as I know. Checked the BIOS, and it was enabled.

Bought a Wireless adapter thinking I could opt out for it. Expectedly, its doing crappy. Getting 1mbps, barely enough to load pages normally. Now im definitely planning to go wired with a netword card.
