Yes Rob that is another option. The ethernet controller now is Mb resident so no issue with seating (and was functioning well before I blew away windows. I screwed up by doing that prematurely as it would make a nice troubleshooting tool). I thought of the special handling of the mac addr issue. I made sure the static ip that I had set up at the old house was clear. I can't think of any other special setting for the mac addr in the router that would interfere but I'll go through it again and look.Hey there, late to the party
I have two suggestions..
1st, have you tried to re-seat the card? That's saved me in the past..
2nd, if that doesn't work, I myself would probably just hit amazon for a new ethernet card for ~$10 or so..
Thanks for the suggestions!
