    I've recently built my first computer and I seem to be plagued with just terrible luck. Everything was fine for a short time until the Ethernet port on my motherboard apparently died. Device manager says it works properly but it lost the ability to tell that an Ethernet cable is inserted. After trying to find a fix for days I just ordered a pci network card. It worked great for a couple of days and then one day it just didn't. It started cycling between identifying and unidentified network and connects sometimes. As of writing it only goes out rarely but while it's working it does so dreadfully slow. I've looked for options for days straight with no luck. I'll post my build below. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    o/s: windows 10
    mobo: msi 970 gaming
    cpu: amd fx 8370 black edition
    gpu: evga GeForce gtx 970 ssc 4gb
    ram: 16gb hyper x fury ddr3
    psu: evga supernova nex 750 gold
