Windows 7: Ethernet cord

Ethernet cord

Well recently, my internet has been going off every 5 minutes and needs another bootup to gain it, and then 5 more minutes it disconnects again, eventually I got fed up and reformatted W7(X64). After reformatting it , the internet worked for about 20 minutes and it disconnected again, but after restarting it, it seemed to do nothing. my NCI is integrated. I realized that it could be dead, considering the day before this happened my brother installed a new TV, and when we put in the plug his lights flickered on and off,(Not sure about my room), but when I went back to my room it was like that no internet, and I had to restart but it worked for many hours. The device manager cant detect that theres a network adapter in it, and when I went to driveragent, it showed that my card was Disconnected. Sure it might be dead, but I would just like to know if this would work for my computer. Amazon.com: Plugable USB 2.0 to 10/100 Fast Ethernet LAN Network RJ45 Adapter (ASIX AX88772 chipset): Electronics, According to it all I would need is to install the drivers, and plug in my Rj45 cord and it should work. I already ordered it, but Im still worried that it might not work. Would it?

Welcome to Windows Sevens Forums.

You might want to check Windows 7's hardware compatibility list here: Windows 7 Compatibility: Software Programs & Hardware Devices: Find Updates, Drivers, & Downloads

If you proposed adapter is incompatible, it'll be flagged up on the list......I hope!

Make sure you've disabled your old adapter though and one other thought - have you given consideration to the possibility that your ISP may be having problems in your area? A phone call to find out won't do any harm.

It works with windows 7 according to the amazon link, and I cant find it on the windows 7 hardware devices compatibility. shouldn't the adapter be already disabled? considering its disconnected and I cant find the network adapter, and its not the ISP, I tried it with my brothers Rj45 doesnt work, but on his computer it works.

I just really have to know, would it work? I know it works with W7, and lets say I didnt even have a NCI card, would it work?

Just another question, should I attempt to disable it? I mean its not even on Device manager listed as a network adapter, and on driver agent it said its a disconnected device.

If Device Manager doesn't see it and Driver Agent says it's disconnected then it's safe to say it has been well and truly disabled.

Ethernet cord not detected
Hey guys, I just installed Windows 7 on a new computer, and I can't get it to detect my ethernet cord. The light on the card that the cord plugs into lights up, and I could access the internet when running a Knoppix live CD, so I don't think it's a hardware problem. I'm fairly inexperienced...
