internet not working- network card issue???
I recently had a UVerse modem installed from AT&T. when the tech left, both my machines (PC and Lap) were working perfect.
Within the next couple of days, the desktop would connect intermittenly (laptop was fine).
I would shut down the PC, reboot, and it would be fine. Then, it started failing after it was up and running, until finally, prob 4-5 days later, I got no connection AT ALL.
Laptop has been fine, no probs. Both machines are running 11.10, I have swapped ethernet cables, unplugged and replugged the modem, my system says "network cable unplugged"...but it ain't...
could my network card be bad?
Is there something else I can check, or a diagnostic i can run?
pls help, I know you guys (and girls) are the best!!! thanks in advance...
