Hi,
I recently got a computer assembled. I'm having intel DH55TC motherboard. it has a gigabit ethernet port. Now if I connect my ethernet cable to it, win 7 is not detecting it. Its giving me an error saying - its unable to detect any network hardware.

Should I buy a NIC to connect to internet ? Isn't the gigabit ethernet port on the motherboard sufficient ? Please help.

Hm, sounds like a faulty onboard NIC ?

Do you know what kind it is maybe you can get some diagnostics software from the vendor.
