Networking Problems (Unidentified Network)

  1. #11


    Yup. I updated my network drivers to no avail (except a 10 minute window where I could access the internet).
    Should I try the BIOS update?
    Because this was happening on my old computer, but none of the new computers or other devices were affected.
    Only MY new computer is affected >.<.

    Every looks normal here, I can't imaging why your connection is going off and on again but it's certainly not normal.

    Yes that would present some problems for Windows update.

    It's near impossible to diagnose problems which are intermittent, but normally going to the board manufacture's web site and obtaining the latest drivers and bios updates is good course of action though you may need to use another machine to download the updates.

    How is it that my dad's computer is alright when mine isn't though?
    I just really do not understand that part.

    How about trying a system restore back to before the problem began. If you have no luck, then you could try a system refresh or a system reset

    Yes that is strange, it seems that somehow the 660Ti is the only difference between the two machines so maybe try another graphics card and see if anything changes.

    I had an old PC that I thought the mobo was bad, which had the problem, and since the chipset was no longer in production, I built a new PC.
    Which has the same problem as the old one...
    Upon formatting my drive, the same problem was occurring.

    There were only two parts that I reused from my old system. My 2tb caviar green (WD), and my 660ti. I'm going to try and take the 660ti out and just use built in graphics.
