Hi, im running on windows 7 and whenever i turn on my computer, the internet icon is always searching or has an x in it. I can only get internet to work when i go through device manager, and update device software. The network adapter im using is Realtek RTL8139/810X Family fast NIC. I'm pretty sure its not the router or faulty ethernet cable

Howdy and welcome to GTG:

Have to ask, but have you downloaded and installed the latest Win7 driver?

Ok i just went to my windows update and saw there was an update for the ethernet card. I thought my computer was up to date because it wasnt asking me to install any updates. I will post again once the updates install.
