    DP76BG network adaptor not working

      Hi,

      Yet more grief from this board (over a month now, one thing after another)

       

      Finally got to a stage where I loaded Windows 7 64bit but can't get network connectivity.  Installed the LAN driver from the CD provided.  I have managed to ping my router a couple of times, but this doesn't last.  Windows reports no cable.  There is a cable & the cable is OK.  Tried another known good cable. Same problem.

       

      Tried with Vector Linux live disk and still no connectivity so not a Windows problem.

       

      Then tried downloading the driver from Intel & still no joy.

       

      It appears that the system is trying to initialise the LAN adapter as the green socket LED lights up for a period then goes out for a period.  During this cycle, Windows is trying to do something but can't.
