Network Controller in HP Pavilion® Elite HPE-180t
Tips to Fix Network Controller Issues in HP Pavilion Elite HPE-180t.
The network needs one interface to support the proper communication of systems in the network. That interface which supports the proper communication in the network is known as the network controller. The network controller is of different types. Ethernet controller is such a type of network controller which is used to support the Ethernet. To connect a particular system to the network, the network controller uses the MAC address, which is unique for each of the system in the network. The entire process in the network indirectly depends upon these network controllers. All the steps of the network communication such as initiation, termination etc are dependant upon the network controller in the system.
The network controller in the HP Pavilion Elite HPE-180t system might fail in the following conditions:
- Changes in Operating System settings
- Problems in the network driver
- Failure of other major network components
Changes in Operating System settings
The network controller works by the necessary functionalities provided by the network driver. The failure of this driver might affect the working of network controller. The driver is software which can be affected by the malware in the system. This is the main reason for the non working of the drivers. Some other reasons which makes the drivers failure are the conflicts between the network drivers, incompatibility problems etc.
Problems in the network driver
The network controller in any computer purely depends upon the Operating System. If the user upgrades the Operating System to improve the system performance then the settings in the Operating System would also change. The change in the Operating System settings might affect the network controller settings also. The basic work environment of the network controller might change during the upgradation. This also causes the non working of network controller.
The routers, switches, cables etc are the other major network components on which the network controller depends. If these components are not working, then the network controller alone cannot connect the system to the network. So the improper working of these components is also a reason for the non working of the network controller.
