 Trouble Shooting

     - Everything is OK in Device Manager, but the network adapter still
       doesn't function properly. Please make sure that your Computer
       name is different from others in the same network.  You can change
       your Computer name in

       "My Computer" -> "Control Panel" -> "System"
       -> "Network Identification"

     - Everything appears to be OK but the network adapter still doesn't
       function properly. Please make sure that the adapter is properly
       connected to a network device (ex: HUB) and the "connection type"
       for this adapter is set to "AutoSense" or the correct media type.
       To check the media type setting, you should start 'Device Manager'

       "My Computer" -> "Control Panel" -> "System"

       In the 'Device Manager', you can find the adapter in 'Network adapters'.
       Open the adapter's property and select "Advanced" item. You can find
       the connection type setting.
