    Re: Viewing the wired network adapters in the Windows Computer?

    For determining the presence of a network adapter in your Windows computer, you will have to;
    • Tap ‘Start’ from the desktop screen of your computer
    • Then choose the option denoted as ‘Control Panel’
    • Now tap on the option denoted as ‘Network and Internet Connections’
    • Then select the Control Panel icon
    • Now tap on the option denoted as ‘Network Connections’
    • If this option is blank, then that means your computer does not have a network adapter
    • If you see a range of adapter names popping up, then that means your computer have a network adapter
    It has to be taken note that if an adapter has an ‘X’ symbol over it, then that means that the adapter is disconnected. If you have the network adapter, then you can go ahead and configure the network.

    there is a software called CPUZ
    Download and install it in your computer.
    Then run it.
    You wil get the list of hardwares that are present in your computer.
    This is the easiest way to find all the hardwares in less time.
