A friend donated a computer to our church and completely re-installed windows and formatted the hard drives and such.
Installed all the drivers that they originally had been given from dell (maybe that's the first problem.. dell)
Under device manager it says the network adapter is working correctly. (Cable is plugged directly into motherboard)
I can't use ipconfig because the cable is "unplugged".
There is no green LED lit up in the back, I've tested the cable on my laptop and other computers and it works correctly. (I can connect to the internet)
Any ideas? I realize the network card might be bad but is there anything else I can try?
(Also, if this is the wrong website for this question let me know and i'll gladly remove it)
