Samsing N130 LAN Problem
Got a strange one with the network LAN connection on these. Imaged all the netbooks and now come to set them up finally find that although the wireless connects without a problem I cant get the LAN cannection to register at all. It just says its installed OK, no problems found but that no cable is plugged in (it lies!). Plugged it in to a WAP (reason being I wanted to configure the WAP) and the network LAN light on the WAP comes on so it must be connected and plugged in! Tried uninstalling the drivers, rebooting and it finds the NIC and reinstalles the drivers all to no effect. Downloaded and installed the latest drivers from the Samsung site as well. This is not a hardware fault as I selected at random one of the other imaged netbooks and that does not recognise a cable had been plugged in either yet wireless is fine and dandy. Chipset is the Realtek.
Eventually seems to have solved itself but dont ask how! They will be cannecting using the wireless anyway, just needed the LAN to connect to the WAP to configure it.
