Use of network controller
The network controller on the Acer TravelMate Notebook functions by assisting it in controlling the network controller card’s ability to function and work properly in the system. The network controller card assists the notebook in its communication within an area or network. It has a MAC address that has been assigned to it so that you can distinguish the different computers that are present on the network. It helps give a unique identification code to the systems on the network. It also helps the notebook connect to high speed bandwidth connections of 10/100/1000 Mbps networks.
Use of outdated or wrong device drivers
Like every other hardware on the system, the network controller on the system functions with the help of device drivers that are used as a communication medium between the software and the hardware. The incorrect or corrupted device drivers which may be old or outdated on the system would lead to issues in the networking capability. These issues can be resolved in the system by means of downloading the necessary drivers that are needed to allow the network card to function properly. The device drivers can be downloaded from the Internet and installed in the system.
Certain malware that is present on the system would result in the corruption of the network drivers of the network card. Once the drivers of the network card are corrupted, the device would fail to function properly. Use an appropriate antivirus software to remove the malware that is present on the system and reinstall the device drivers associated with the network card once again. Reboot the system and configure the network card. Finally, allow the network card to come into effect.
