Since netorking a 98 machine to a XP , using realtec rtl8139/810x ethernet card. Sometimes the noise which come from this card is unbearable , i thought at first it was a wire rubbing the CPU fan until i opened the box. It sound similar to when a dial up modem is connecting but all rumbled together, the only way to cure this is to reboot the machine. Any idea's how to rectiy this, is there a volume on it like a modem????

network cards aren't supposed to make sounds...

i would recommend taking it back to where you got it and getting a different one.

Network cadrs shouldn't make noise. The operating frequency is 1,000-10,000 times too high to hear. But, if the isolation transformes they use are not assembled right they can vibrate in the audible range. You might be able to make it stop by tapping it when it's being noisy.

Get it replaced, it will fail eventually.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
