Disappearing PCI devices

When I power-on my system, my 10/100 NICs and NC6134's don't show up in Win2000. If I perform a shutdown/reboot, the devices reappear. This is very reproducible behavior on this unit. No POST errors occur, and Quick Check diags always run clean.

Anyone else notice missing PCI devices when cold booting?

Re: Disappearing PCI devices

Had the same problem. When the nic driver is loaded but you do not have any cables connected, you must use the terminators supplied with the cards.

I am assuming that this is happening on the dual port cards and you have cables connected to only one port.
