I will post 3 problems, perhaps with correlation between but maybe not. If it's problematic I can make new posts with each problem separated.
1:st problem is with the internal network card.
Yesterday evening my internet started to go down at random and this morning I was unable to connect to the internet at all. I went and shopped new Ethernet cables Cat-6 to see if perhaps the problems was with broken cables.
I changed cables but was still unable to connect to the internet.
Also, restarted the computer, modem, inactivated and reactivated the network card. Did not solve the problem.
I called my ISP to see if the problem was on their end. I got in contact with a technician, and he checked the connection and find no fault. He told me to go to cmd and use the ipconfig /all command. My Ethernet connection had another ip address then the one given by the company and his conclusion was that it was a problem with the computer, perhaps the network card.
My network at home is a modem, a cable through the wall to a connector, and a cable from the connector to my computer. I repeated the process with restarting, deactivation and activiation. This time the network card did not recognize my ethernet cable at all. tried with both cables same result.
I have been at the device manager and and drives seems okay and it does no mention any conflicts.
Got any advice on what to do? How to troubleshoot?
I also bought a external network card (ethernet), D-Link DUB-1312. I installed it with the drivers on the included cd and after that plugged in the device. I hear the windows sound for when plugin in the device but it does not recognize the Ethernet cables either. From what I can see when I use ipconfig /all and from the fact that I cant connect to internet.
I use Windows 10 on my laptop.
I have looked in the device manager, the external network card seems installed and working. No conflict what I can see.
Any advice on what do? And how to solve it.
The last problem might have a correlation with the first two. In my device manager I have a unknown device.
The vendor is unknown,
Through google I found that the device is a "Free Fall Sensor" from dell. I tried to update the drive through windows. And from this site: http://dellwindowsre...om/driver-sets/, "Free Fall Sensor – 4.13.61 (Windows 10)". Rebooted between and after installations but the device could still not find proper drivers.
