Windows 7: SSD boot drive cannot access internet where HDD has no problem

14 Apr 2019   #11

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Just as a followup test, I ran the tracert command you gave on the original ssd and install PC and it gives
the same result as the successful trace from HDD on the target or second PC.

I will look at some things in device manager for clues when installed on the problem PC.

Marked solved.
I re-ran the MSI ethernet installer to refresh the drivers on the SSD for this MSI PC.
Everything then fell into place. This is something I had not thought to do but Device Manager

showed a yellow lock error icon and I then started to think of a reinstall from the mfg

Currently writing from the target MSI with SSD boot drive.

Thanks for assistance. Please explain how trace route works for diagnostic.

Trace shows were the signal is going and every router to the final destination it shows if there is a bad router on the network if it goes nowhere then there is a local fault
