Went back to old round cables the next hour.
However where are you getting the drivers? For laptops we get those from the maker. If not, troubles can follow. And if you are getting drivers from Microsoft, I don't advise that either.
I used a wireless connection for a couple years. I moved and now I want to use a wired connection. I am not able to connect to the internet at all with the newest(2015) Realtek driver. The only way I can get a wired connection is by rolling back the driver to previous(2013) version and change speed and duplex to 10mbps.
I plugged the 25ft cat6 into my roommate's computer and successfully connected @ 100mbps.
Observation: When my roommates computer successfully connected, it displayed the custom network name that I set. When using the 10mbps on my computer, the network name is generic Linksys578
I would like to get internet without bottlenecking myself.
Any help is appreciated
