What is a network controller?
Also known as LAN adapter, network adapter or network interface card, a network controller is a kind of hardware component which allows your laptop to connect with a computer network in your home or office. A network controller can be a wired one or a wireless one too, but you will definitely need it to get connected to a computer network.
If you have installed a network controller in the Samsung R730 laptop and you are still not able to use it, then this may be because of some highly volatile virus infection in your computer. Under such circumstances, the first you should do is to disconnect the laptop from your network, so that other computers in the network do not get infected. After that, run your antivirus program to identify and remove the virus from your computer. Also remember to keep your antivirus program updated so that your computer remains equipped with the tools to fight against the latest online threats.
Which ever network controller you have installed on your laptop, you will also need to install the right network controller drivers. If you have already installed the drivers and you are still not able to connect to the network, may be your drivers have become outdated or they need an updating. If you have installed the drivers from the Internet, then there are possibilities that you have installed the wrong drivers. Make sure that you have installed the right drivers and that too from an authentic and reliable site.
This kind of problem arises when you have a wireless network controller in Samsung R730 laptop. Your network controller may stop working if it does not receive enough network signals to get it going. In this situation, you should check your router to see if the lights are working fine and it does not have any problem. Also make sure that other wireless devices are not working in the range such as microwave oven, or a Bluetooth mobile phone.
