I'm having problems with network connection on desktop PC. Here's my computer specs:
Processor: Intel® Core 2 Quad CPU Q3800 @ 2.5Ghz 2.5Ghz
64 bit OS
Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1
LAN Network Adapter: Intel® 8256V-2 Gigabit Network Connection
Details of the problem and history:
I wanted to connect to the internet using a wireless USB adapter but the PC does not respond when I try and insert one (D-Link DWA-130). I tried connecting this USB adapter on my laptop and it works just fine. It seemed the PC is failing to detect the hardware. So then I tried connecting an ethernet cable to hardwire my connection but still there is a problem. Diagnostics showed I have a problem with the LAN adapter driver.
Could you guys help me fix this? I'm willing to follow any procedures and provide information you need.
Thanks in advance and more power to you!
