    DG35EC desktop_board 'Network cable is unplugged'

    ilayarajar

      I recently got DG35EC desktop board... have installed Win XP Pro SP1... the issue is...whenver i logon... getting 'Network cable is unplugged' message.

      I'm not using any network cable and its not in network at all. Tried re-installing the network card / even updated the driver but no luck. What could be the reason? any solution to resolve the issue?

          Hello;

           

          This is not an issue, is an expected behavior of the operating system since you installed the onboard LAN drivers of the desktop board and this means that the onboard device is working properly.

           

          If want to get rid of that message simple connect a LAN cable that has network connection or Internet access or simply hide this option under the Windows* network settings.

           

          Regards
