I have come back yet again with another question for the family. I have an Asus Crosshair Formula V that has been really acting up.
About 3 weeks ago my internet (LAN) stopped working literally overnight while the computer was turned off. After a great deal of procrastination I went about trouble shooting.
After getting nowhere I replaced my router and still my computer is displaying the icon with the red X over the network plug and monitor in the bottom right hand of my task bar.
So then I thought this could be a cable issue, so I bought a new cable. After that didn't solve the problem I am now thinking it is the on-board LAN device.
Problem is this: of the 8 times I have turned this computer on 2 of the times after about an hour of being turned on.. surprise... it connects and runs lightning fast, then I shut off my computer and restart and no more internet connection.
Has anyone heard of something like this happening before? I am very confused.
I have tried all of the above at one point or another.
I will take a look at my bios and see if the adapter shows up and report back...
The windows 7 trouble shooter gives me the error in the title. It tells me that a network cable is unplugged or that there may be a problem with the cable, both of which are certainly not the problem, since over time the computer always connects. As of the weekend I have learned that it always connects but it takes 20+ minutes to do.
