Are there any particular settings that need to be changed for DHCP through Cat 5 cabling, etc
any help would be very gratefully received......
May be as simple as a driver
. type device manger in search. Go to the network tab. Is you device listed? does it have a yellow triangle on it? are there any other "unknown" device with yellow on them?
If your device is not listed, or has a yellow triangle on it you need to install the driver. Go to the MFR website and download it.
