Hi trpk,

As the network adapter is not listed in Device Manger, there is a possibility that it is disabled in the BIOS. Refer to the User's Manual of your computer/system board for details on the System Setup (BIOS).

If you have difficulty changing the BIOS options, do reply with the Motherboard Model Number in case it is custom built machine or the System Model Number for an OEM (Branded) Machine.

Unfortunately I don't know where I can find this BIOS but if anyone could provide a step by step instruction that would be great!

Hi trpk,

You can find the steps on how to enter the System Setup (BIOS) for some of the common computer manufacturers from the below mentioned link:

https://ccm.net/faq/283-access-your-bios-setup

This may work for some custom-built PCs as well.

I would appreciate if you could reply with the type of motherboard in the machine so that I can help you with the correct steps.

Please do write back to us.

Hi trpk,

Please go through the following link, it will connect you to the page from where you can download the software to identify the motherboard and other components, then check the previous link and compare your BIOS.

Please revert for clarification.

In my opinion you not apply a static IP configuration. First of all set your adapters to DHCP and permit them to obtain addresses automatically.

If you are still having an problem with the your adapter, I would easily uninsatll(remove) it from Device manager and let windows rescan and reinstall. If you have the acurate driver that should fix the problem.
How do I set it to DCHP?

Hi trpk,

As suggested by me and deliciamarten, most likely the issue is with the Network Adapter drivers. In my earlier posts I guided you as to how to find the motherboard in your machine and thus the Ethernet adapter. Please do follow steps and keep us posted if the issue is fixed.

Please do write back to us.
