Me and networks weren't meant to coexist.
To test whether I have a bad video card on my PC (HP s3700y) or monitor all I did was was take the VGA from the monitor and plug it in my wireless laptop. Now the PC that DID show on the network when the VGA cable was attached does not. Why is the hard-wired PC no longer on the network simply because I disconnected the VGA cable? No other cables or USB devices were changed on either the laptop or PC.
Thanks for the education.
