A friend of mine is having trouble with his internet. It's an old PC.
Mobo is the Asus K8N-E Delux. He did a clean Windows XP install.
Downloaded the Nvidia network drivers from Asus and installed it. Now he can get on Google just fine and searching works too. Only when trying to open other sites it will just endlessly load the page without progress.
In cmd I ping google.com fine. But ping adobe.com for example and I get a "request timed out".
Tried changing MTU in the router but doesn't help.
Also worth noting is that a second computer is connected to the same router and is working fine. Tried switching the ports but still the same problem.
Can this be because of the network adapter not working properly anymore? In that case I thought maybe getting a new network card like this TP-LINK TG-3269 PCI Gigabit Network Adapter - Newegg.com
would fix the problem. Am I correct to think it's the network adapter?
