The led on the power supply should slowly die no more residual power on the board. Also, try hibernate instead of sleep, and see if the adapter still disappears when your pc resumes from this state. Either way, I apologize for the long wait! Did you install any drivers at all? Either way, next time I’m home I’ll run some tests and see if I can pinpoint the issue.

As for your question about the system time, I’m xos quite sure what causes that. I already tried updating the Network Driver, the latest version of it is from early So, it seems like power-cycling is only a temporary fix. Connect the ethernet cable to the pc and powerline adapter and boot off the Linux volume. I noticed that the connection lights were yellow instead of green on the powerline ethernet adapter it is connected to. If it gets you several days of no problems, I wouldn’t mind power cycling every once in a while.

It has a warning icon on each driver, and is in the Other category, separated from the rest.

My first suspicion is a failure of the device. It’s really up to you to decide whether to get an NIC card or not. I have the same question 0. When I go home for Easter Weekend, I’ll give that a try.

I got completely ripped off. To create a bootable thumb drive, you could use one of the free utilities made for this purpose. I really hope to solve this problem soon, as I’m home on Spring Break and I’ll be leaving for college again in a couple of days.

You paid for the knowledge and experience that was able to determine xsp needed to be installed, where to find that component, and how to install it.

All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic or perhaps manual. Also, you may not have a blank disc readily available. Hopefully so, I’m just surprised that I’ve never encountered this problem until now.

Sadly, I do ethernrt have access to any other operating systems aside from Windows at the moment. So, would anyone have any suggestions as to what to do next or how to fix this problem?

That reinforces my hope that it is simply a manufacturing defect or a design flaw. If the adapter works all that time, put the pc to sleep for say five minutes then wake it up and see if controllr adapter is still present and working.
