I'm using a Broadcom Netlink Gigabit Ethernet adapter on a Compaq nx6325 laptop. When I plug it in the first time, it works, but if I unplug the ethernet, and plug it back in, it doesn't work anymore... but it used to. It also tends to tell me the Gigabit Ethernet adapter can now be safely removed. When I plug the cable in again, it just says Acquiring IP address for a long time, and then Limited or no connectivity.

Thanks for any ideas. I don't why it stopped working.

In the bottom right hand corner of your screen click on the two computers icon. When that opens click on the second tab and click on repair connection. That should fix your limited connection issue.

Hi,
The question I have for you is, why did you un-plug it ??? Doing so does something to the IP stack...So my guess would be to uninstall it and reinstall it...Under normal conditions I believe the previous post in reply to yours is a correct method but where you unplugged it, I'm not certain if that method will work...Keep us posted...
