Problem With a Bad and a Good Network Card


A few years ago, I had a network card go bad, so I replaced it with a new network card, but the old/bad network card was still in/on the computer.

On occasion with some, but not all, live CDs/DVDs, the damn thing sees the old/bad network card, and ignores the new/good network card.

Of course, this upsets me.

But, I cannot disconnect the old/bad network card.

What do I do?
How do I tell some of these live CDs/DVDs what network card to use?

Thank you for your time and any advice you may give me, and have a good day!

kevinbenko,

There should be an option in your computer's BIOS to disable the old network card.

Is this a PC or a laptop?

Desktop, of course.
