Wired Network Issue

Hello everyone, I am having a issue with my computer to the point I am hitting my head the off (for real, I am). Anyway, I have small network, two computers and xbox that use the network. One of my computers can't get connect to the network at all. That computer uses a wired network interface card, and I use a wired network interface card not wireless like everyone does. My other computer is wireless and so is xbox. Reason I use wired network card, I get better results on wired than wireless card when I run my Iracing program.

Anyway what I have tried to get my computer back online is:
1. Replaced network cable
2. Used network interface card that is on motherboard. I have Realtek network card.
3. Tried updating the drivers
4. Updated the router.
5. Tried using ipconfig to release ip address and get another one. (that step did not work but works on my other computer.)

Am I missing something or did not try something. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know and thanks.

static ip

Wired is normally much easy to setup..strange.

First do you have lights that come on when you plug the cable in, if not you have a hardware issue.

I would try a static IP address on the PC and see what happens. Be sure you only have a single ethernet interface and/or wireless interface active on the PC at a time. You can get very strange results when you have multiple

Wired Network Issues/Static IP

Hello thanks for reply back, I did try static IP address and did not work. I did check to see if there are lights on network interface card and there is green light on for 100M

try to ping this address and let me know what is the result,,
this command proves that the network card and the TCP/IP software is working correctly.

Re: ping

Two errors in your post:
1. The Ip-address to ping is not, but
2. Pinging localhost doesn't use the network card

But, indeed, ping is a good way to do a basic test of the TCP/IP software.
