Default Serious problems with Ethernet Wired Network - 04-22-2012, 11:59 AM

go the Duo and bought the Audio Station.
everything works fine but the Ethernet adapter!
i get leds working in the connection
but the computer don't recognize anything connected in that port.
i tried multiple cable and networks plugs in the wall.

the network adapter (realtek) doesn't show in the device manager.
when i take the duo out and insert back again sometime the adapter will show
but still no connection.
i managed to get a connection after reinstalling driver and restart but it didn't last 5 minutes until it says cable unplugged and no adapter in device manager.

i installed the driver from dell site.
bios is updated.
did a system restore to day 1, same.

your help is much appreciated.

please help?
the computer was at the lab they replaced the SYS_BD but its still the same.
the Ethernet connection makes no sense at all.
it can work and after restart the device doesn't show in device manager.
i pull it out of the docking station and insert again, after few time it can work but when pulling out and inserting again it doesn't recognize any device!

this must be the worst dell computer i ever encountered.
