I Am Not A Geek .. (And I can Prove It!)
Your probably reading this because of the subject line!
C'mon .. admit it! 8)
Well here goes: It did me absolutely no good to upgrade my system to FIOS.
Why, you may ask?
Well, it's because I haven't been able to connect the modem to the pc by ethernet cable since day one!
I am actually running this pc .. using a usb adapter, sitting not three feet away from the actiontec FIOS router!
Here's the dumb question: Is the intel 82566dc-2 gigabit network connection that you see in the device manager .. a part of the pc ethernet port connector?
(What you plug the cable into)
I ask because I can't connect with the ethernet cable and can only use the usb dongle.
The intel 82566dc-2 gigabit network connection shows a problem in DM (yellow yield sign).
I have disabled the thing.
Deleted and re-installed the drivers .. Everything and nothing works!
So now I need to know .. are the two things mentioned above related and if so .. should I just replace the card?
