Yes that's the one. This is what the error message is. The realtek network controller was not found. If deep sleep mode is enabled please plug the cable.

Alright TerryNet, so I have Driver Easy and it says that the controller is (unplugged) does that confirm that it is dead?

If it doesn't appear in Device Manager under Network Adapters or as an "other Device" with some type of yellow or red warning or error message it is loose or dead. And, it's probably integrated with the motherboard, so "loose" = dead.

Allan or Darrin may have additional things to try.
