    Confused Eternet Port on DP45SG and Vista64 Business

    emcannon1

      I have an interesting problem. For reasons only known to God, my Ethernet port simply quit working. Before going to work in the morning, it worked fine. I turned off the PC. When I returned home, I turned on the PC and, to my surprise. I had no internet connection, not even local access. I did all the usual stuff and nothing worked. I have another PC using Vista Ultimate 32, and it did not have a problem. So, I connected a TrendNet USB Ethernet Adapter and VIOLA, I have an internet connection. Now, I’m confused as to why the onboard Ethernet port refuses to reset. Vista does not afford me the ability to literally re-assign the card any parameters as they are automatically re-set this confusing mix of private settings. (see ipconfig /all below).
