Wired Network Problem.


New Member
I'll try explain this as best as I can, but its a unique problem for as much as I have searched?

Basicly every time I boot up, I end up having to re-install my network drivers as they report as "Limited" with the warning symbol over the connection icon.

I've tried everything to get it back to normal without having to install the drivers, (Disable Windows Firewall, update the drivers, etc.) but with nothing working, I just have to resort in uninstalling the driver and installing it again via the device manager in order to get it work.

I'm sure its a problem with this computer, as when I am in limited mode, I can access my router configuration page ( ) and it reports that the internet is connected. I can also easily access other computers which are connected to the router over LAN, and those other computers have no problems accessing the internet.

If anyone has ANY suggestions at all, im welcome to try them. I just need to get this sorted.

You do not mention whether you are wireless or Ethernet?
Whichever, you would not normally need both. Go into the device manager and disable the one you are not using - You will probable find it has a yellow symbol over it.
Correction. I see you are wired, apologies. So. Back to the drawing board. Do you have a wireless card in the computer.

No wireless card in the computer, only card is a Ethernet onboard one.
