  • I have HP laptop with Vista.  My internet connection drops suddenly when I am in the middle of something.  I looked at the system information and I noticed my Ethernet was disable and it is in the problem information area.  Is this suppose to be diable?  If not, I can't figure out how to enable it.  I won't let me.

  • Hi,

    Please click Start, type Device manager and press enter. Locate and expand the Network adapters, right click on your network card:Realtek RTL8102E Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0), you will see the Enable item from the context list. If you can't enable it this way, try the "Update driver software" at the same context prompt. You can download the driver here.
