CT-2 Cable detection error

Hi,

I've recently installed a CT-2 network card (pic-e) on my XP pc. After startup the card reports 'no cable connected'. When I deactivate the network connection in windows and afterwards enable it again, then everything works fine.

Any suggestions / hints?

Hi Tomy,

Have you tried testing the NICs in other system getting the same issue?

Changing the cable to isolate it is not the cabling issue

Driver version used? The latest version https://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProdId=3025 https://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProdId=3025

Thanks,

Hi,

thanks for your reply. I've double - checked all (cable, other target router), the behavior stays the same.

I'm using the final driver for xp.

I assume some timing issue during system startup, because when I deactivate the network - adapter and reactivate it in the windows network adapter section, it starts working immediately (and of course it works very fine..)

Could it be a time-out occurring during initial checks?
