Does it say that it is working properly? If it doesn't show up at all, check the bios to insure that the on-board LAN is enabled. | Report abuse Reply to RealBeast dbhosttexas February 21, 2013 3:58:32 PM Has the cable itself been tested and shown to be a good functioning cable? Is the port on the switch / router on the other end known good?
