Thanks for all the help guys! Sun Aug 30, 7: So I pushed it in a little further notch not lined up with the hole on the case , and Windows recognized it immediately. Generally when Windows says the connection’s unplugged, the cable’s bad or the port at the other end of the cable is shut off. If the card is functioning properly, make sure speeds, protocols, modes, etc.

3Com EtherLink 10/ PCI NIC (3CTX) drivers
Try bending the bracket slightly for a better fit. Wrong driver I had one of these cards and the wrong driver would cause this issue. Sun Aug 30, 7: Board index Technology Networking.
Been using it in multiple systems for about a decade now No registered users and 1 guest. Have windoas tried just having XP attempt to repair the connection?

Alternatively you can use the Net Diagnostics off the Tools menu in msinfo Who is online Users browsing winndows forum: It’s been too long for me to remember specifics, but the 3CTX has lots of cool extras like hardware network acceleration, which offloads work from 39c05tx CPU that you should check to make sure it’s setup all right.
It appears to be using the stock Microsoft drivers. Have you verified that the router or switch you’re plugging the other end of the cable into is OK?
I’d hazard a guess that the “cable unplugged” message you’re seeing is referring to the onboard NIC as well. Mon Windkws 31, 5: Seems to get better or worse depending on the case you use.

Sheep Rustlers in the sky! Sun Aug 30, 5: The driver listed on the adapter is still the Microsoft one. You may also have to check PCI settings, but again, I don’t remember specifics with the card.
Sun Aug 30, 4: Glad to hear you got it figured out though Win7 doesn’t have such a driver included. I wouldn’t want to leave it loose any longer than necessary; if the card pops out of the slot while the system is running it could fry something. Sun Aug 30, 6: Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.
