    I am trying to install a broken nic into a computer for a test and in the test, we are supposed to test the nics with a loopback address but even after hitting the nic with a hammer and paper taping the pins the loopback is still coming back as successful. HELP. The test is tomorrow and properly using the loopback is a crucial part of it.

    Is this machine a desktop? Are you using 127 as the loopback address? A loopback address is not hardware dependent (NIC), unless your test calls for it. Do you have Wifi enabled on the NIC?
