       name is different from others in the same network.  You can change
       your Computer name in

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

    2. 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 "Auto-negotiation" or the correct
       media type. You can check it in "My Computer" -> "Control Panel"
       -> "Network" -> "Properties" icons. Select "Advanced" item.
