Hi! I just installed windows blue and now I noticed that my lan card can't connect to the internet. That is just what happened to my motherboard integrated network card few years ago. When I try to connect to the internet it's can't identify my modem. I don't believe that my drivers cause this and I am tested other cables but no, it's can't connect internet. please I need a help, how can it's just can't connect internet for no reason?

Hi,

Do status LED's light when cable connected to your card and modem?
It may be that your settings regarding IP adress are wrong.

Best regards :)

Led light is flashing and when I am enclosing the cable to modem it's recognize that it is connected to a device. but just can't identify it even if I connect into to any modem.

Okay, so you installed an unofficial leaked copy of a pre-beta release of the next version of Windows, and you want to know what's broken and you think it can't be the drivers... Good luck to you on that...

Have you verified the controller with a known good operating system, and not pre beta software?

yeah, integrated network card doesn't even work with windows 7 or windows 8. I'll bet that this case is the same, but I'll try to install windows 8 again if it would start to work. :(  That is so strange.

If it doesn't work with Windows 7 or 8 you can't expect it work with another operating system. You could always buy a NIC that goes in a slot in your computer.

No, don't reinstall. If you want to test again a known good OS, get a "Live" media OS such as Knoppix or even a CentOS Live DVD... Either way you don't need to reformat your drive to test.

Also what NIC chipset is it and what specific lights are flashing? (Green, amber, red), is there a specific pattern to the flashing? If you don't know the chipset, what make / model NIC or if onboard, mainboard are you dealing with?

The most likely culprits are...

#1. Bad / incorrect driver.
#2. Misconfigured driver.
#3. Least likely, but possible, bad controller chip. In which case just turn off the NIC in the BIOS, and throw an onboard card into the mix.

Don't expect all of your hardware to be working with Windows Blue at this point. I would imagine it is pretty rough as of yet...
