NS-PU98635 Ethernet Adapter

[ Edited ]

Hi everybody :

      This ethernet adapter doesn't work.  It won't connect to the internet. And there's no support to find out the proper configuration settings.   {removed per forum guidelines}

It should be plug and play with a modern OS. What configuration are you looking for? Does the adapter show up in device manager? Are you sure the problem is not elsewhere? (Cable, router, USB port)

                              It doesn't connect.....properly.....to the internet. And, there's no tips or instructions on how to configure this device. It won't even connect with my ISP home page.  Yes....I realize....being it's a USB device, it will function at a slower speed.  I was even given a link to the Insignia website.  No support there. Just the ability to download drivers...which came with the device.    yes...it shows up in DEVICE MANAGER.  The only other source of the problem is configuration.  It's connected, directly, to my MODERM via an ethernet cable.

There really is no configuration required on a USB ethernet adapter. Who is your internet provider? Why did you purchase the USB adapter in the first place?

Ethernet is most likely switched off on the Hardware on the system itself or the router. I have seen this happen in a few instances while doing computer repair work for friends.
