    What version of Windows?

    Offhand, this sounds like a driver issue. Did you try uninstalling the NIC in Device Manager and rebooting to allow it to be discovered again? How about downloading and installing the latest drivers for the NIC?

    Preferably download from your PC or motherboard manufacturer's site.

    NIC - Network Interface Card, or in your case, probably embedded in the motherboard.

    Hey JohnWill,

    I did what you suggested, and it worked well!!

    Thank you so much. I was considering to take it into an IT spec to fix it but now I don't need to. Save my money.

    Again Thank you so much :)
