Default network card trouble

Everytime i try and connect to the internet when i turn on my computer i cant connect. So i have to unplug my ethernet cord from the wall countless times until it allows me to connect to the internet, sometimes it takes me up to 10 times until i can connect. Ive updated all the drivers i think, and i tried my laptop through the same port and it can connect right away. i think its my nic card but im not sure... any suggestions?

Default Re: network card trouble

"Cant's connect." Please elaborate on this. What is the computer telling you? Is it not seeing a connection? Is the connection failing? Is it saying it is local?

Also, what is your NIC card, or is it onboard (built into your motherboard)? If it is onboard, what is your motherboard or make and model of you computer? What is your operating system?
