Following the suggestion from InZaNE_mOdS (see below) I aam starting this as a new discussion.
I have just tried to connect with a new PCI network card in an older machine, and the RJ45 10/100 interface on a new mobo. The older machine states 'Local Area Connection. A Cable is unplugged' and will not connect. The newer machine shows the Network adaptor in Control Panel, and states that it is working correctly. I have connected a Cat5 Patch cable between the computers but am still having no success in connecting them together. Uninstalling and re-installing had no success. Any suggestions?
