What is an Ethernet card?
An Ethernet card is a kind of network adapter that supports high-speed network connections via cables and is sometimes also known as a Network Interface Card (NIC). Ethernet cards are responsible for the communication of your computer system with a local area network.
Can’t see computer on the network
This is fairly a common issue where a user cannot see the computer on the network. The problem might be related to either the IP address or with the network connection itself. To resolve this problem it is advisable to first determine the IP address of the computer that you want to connect to and you should also have a shared folder accessible with that computer. You can also reboot the system to avoid this problem.
User gets disconnected from the network periodically
This happens when, either the computer system has recently been upgraded or a new operating system has been installed on the system. Due to the default setting of the system priorities, Windows® might be turning off the network adapter to save power. This issue can be resolved by turning off the power-saving option in the network adapter’s properties (wired network adapters only), to get further insight into this issue it is advisable to seek professional technical support.
Network connection is too slow
This kind of problem often comes up in many computer systems including Dell® XPS M1330. This usually happens when the driver for the network adapter is outdated and needs to be updated or replaced with the latest one. This problem often comes up while viewing any video or audio file on the laptop. Another cause of slow network connections might be a compatibility issue between the router and the network adapter; in this case, the slower one needs to be replaced. Also, while using a wired connection, the network runs slow, in that case, it is advisable to reboot the system and check the performance. If the problem still persists then contacting a qualified technical professional to resolve the issue should be the preferred course of action.
