The settings in the BIOS for the network card are to Enable/Disable the controller, and also the setting to Enable/Disable Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) which occurs before the operating system loads.
The network card is active even before the Operating System loads. Does this issue only occur with this application? How about other network resources such as Mapped drives?
I will do some more testing and let you know the results.
I think I got it working. It did the following:
- Updated the BIOS of the motherboard
- activated both ethernet ports (before only eth1 was active)
This seems to have fixed the issue.
Thanks for your help
