I'm building my first tower and decided to run a cat5 cable from my router to my mobo's ethernet port instead of using a wireless setup. When i try to connect to the internet, i get a message saying "no networking hardware found" I was under the impression that that was what the ethernet port on my mobo was for.
Thanks for the help
Mobo - ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
OS - Windows 7 Professional
Router - Linksys WRT150n
thanks for the help. I think i put a staple through the cat5 cable when i was running it through my house. I took my computer downstairs right next to the router and connected it with another cable and connected.
