Default LAN driver Probs

HI All

I am having a problem with my Network , when I switch on my PC and it is loading (Windows 7) when it is nearly loaded up there is a small Network icon on the bottom right of the window and it is showing a whirling blue circle then when it stops whirling a yellow ! shows and then I have no internet connection .

what I have to do is go into Device Mgr and uninstall the network adapter then click on "scan for hardware changes" then it finds the adapter and loads it and then the icon goes to a screen then I can connect , I have to do this every time I switch my computer on .

I was using the built in LAN chip , so I purchase a PCI card LAN adapter but it is still the same .

I know a bit about PC's but this has got me beat . any help from our techie friends out there would be great .

thanks Spike

Have you re-installed LAN drivers?? This is just suggestion I think this might help you out.

I agree it sounds like a driver problem, if you find your mobo make and model no, and go to makers website you should be able to download the latest firmware with drivers etc, or do the same for your pci card and install, windows 7 is probably using a generic driver which needs reloading each time.
