Dell 8250 desktop, integrated network connection. Intel ProSetversion 188.8.131.52. Checked link speed: no speed. Speed and Duplex: autodetect. Diagnostics: Link- "this adaptor has no link" ; Cable and Harware passed OK.
I have been troubleshooting this issue for a while now, but do not get closer to an answer whether the connector is fysically at its end or that it has to do with installed drivers or something else. I have run Belarc, this shows that the card is recognized, but it says that there are no drivers found for the connection. I have downloaded and installed the latest version of the Pro /100 M connector. Also program setspeed.exe is not running? at least it doesn't show to have any impact. Respect your support in getting this cleared.
conclusion: hardware failure
