Intel NIC upload problem

I have a 10/100/1000 Intel NIC that is having upload issue. I went to and the download would be fine but when it's testing for upload speed, it failed.

Any suggestion how to to resolve or troubleshoot this problem is much appreciated.

What's broke?

Since you can get to I doubt the nic is dead on the upload side.

Try a different internet speed test......use google.

These test seem to use flash the latest?

I have done that. Again, if I tried to upload anything, it would not work -- downloading is no problem. I can watch youtube or other stuff but as soon as I do any uploading, it would crawls and some sites would give me an error or time out connection.

Re: upload

Now why do you think it's a NIC problem? It could be a driver problem, a Windows problem, browser problem, a router problem, a modem problem, an ADSL/cable company problem, an ISP-problem.

I'd start with trying your PC/laptop somewhere else to exclude any external factor.

Upload problem

As mentioned....many areas.
Call your ISP.
Explain your problem.
Those folks work this sort of problem daily......their good at it.
Maybe they can help you......or not.

Fixed one like that a few months back.

They had finally given up and asked for help.

The first thing I found were hand made cables. To my surprise they INSISTED it was not the cables. I let them tell me about the pro that installed the cables and showed them some tester that said it was fine. Sometimes you have to let them finish. I said "humor me." I pulled out a pre-made cable and it worked fine with that.

The nice part is that the full hour charge was possible because they wanted to explain in detail why it couldn't be the cable.

Sometimes you have to let them carry on.

I'd forgotten all cables. From PC to router, from router to modem, from modem to phone outlet. So if he tries anywhere else to decide between 'inside machine' and 'outside machine' he should use his friends Ethernet cable also.
