Internet only working when connected using Ethernet cable. Wifi doesn't work

Question: Internet only working when connected using Ethernet cable. Wifi doesn't work

Hi guys,

I've been researching and trying to days to get this to work with no avail so I decided to post here for some help as I see this community is really active.

We've got 4 different laptops here and none of them can connect to the wifi anymore (it suddenly stopped working for the last whole week). We can connect to the internet through ethernet cables though. We only use one at a time (if ethernet, then wireless is disabled and vice versa).

Here is a copy of the ipconfig/all:

Preferred Solution: Internet only working when connected using Ethernet cable. Wifi doesn't work

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Internet only working when connected using Ethernet cable. Wifi doesn't work

You have an IP on your LAN, but none on your wifi. Check your router to make sure DHCP for wifi is turned on and you have enough available addresses.

Whenever I unplug from the router and go upstairs, I can't connect to my wi-fi. The problem also persists downstairs unless I am connected by ethernet. It's been happening for about 2 days. At first the wi-fi would jump in and out randomly and quickly but now it simply wont connect. Is it a virus or how can I fix it?
 

Answer:Wifi doesn't connect unless directly connected to router by ethernet cable

You might just need to restart your router / WiFI AP to resolve that issue.

Hello:I've been having an issue with my Dell XPS Desktop (Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V Ethernet card).
When I connect this server to my router by an ethernet cable, all other other computers connected (Hardwired or Wifi connected) disconnect themselves from the internet. I get the same response when I connect to the Wireless Wifi as well.
It happens only with this Desktop running Windows 10.
I was told to change the DNS address to the OPENDNS Addresses - I tried and I had no luck. I do not have the Ethernet card or the Desktop in powersave mode. They do not go to sleep when idle.
Can someone please make any suggestions. Any input from your end would be very much appreciated.

Hey guys, my laptop asus stopped working with wifi connection and I was just reading some posts here about this same problem but didn't find how to fix it.

I was uninstalling some programs from my pc but I didn't uninstall programs named "something wireless". I just took off what I knew I could.

I also tried the option "solve problems" in the wireless pc symbol and the answer was to connect my laptop to an ethernet cable...that never happened. Just now.

Does anyone knows how I get back my wireless connection? Pleasee
 

Answer:WiFi doesn't work only with cable ethernet

Powercycle the modem and router. Here is a specific order if you have a separate modem and router.
1. Shut down all PC's.
2. Shut down the Modem and router.
3. Power on the modem only. Wait 2 minutes or so.
4. Power on the router. Wait 2 minutes or so.
If you have a modem/router combo, then you don't need step 4.
5. Boot up the PC and see if you can connect.

Hello.

Firstly let me apologise if this question is repeated elsewhere but I could not find anything identical to it.

I have an Acer laptop and connect from this to the internet via a CDMA connection provided by the local (I live in Thailand) version of a Novatel MiFi 2200 modem. This works just fine for internet browsing and I simultaneously use P2P software to download UK TV stuff.

I also have a wired network in my house and on this I have a 3Gb NAS drive. There is a wireless router on the network but I am outside of it's range.

When I connect the network cable to connect to the NAS drive, I am no longer able to browse the internet. BUT the P2P software still carries on working as before. So therefore my laptop is still connected to the internet via the Wifi network.

So why does my browser think otherwise. Normally I use Google Chrome but I have also tried IE and this suffers from the same fate.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Alan

Any idea chaps why my laptop connects to the internet over wifi but not if I connect the ehternet cable directly into the back?
I have checked that the driver is installed (I think) and also that the box is ticked to allocate IP address automatically...

Hi there,

The laptop I have is an asus P550C, windows 7.

This laptop came pre-installed with Mcafee Antivirus protection for a limited amount of time. Wifi was working perfectly fine although there were occasions where the connection would disconnect by itself. After the free-trial ended, I did not want to buy the packaged they were advertising so I went to my Control Panel and uninstalled Mcafee. This was when the problem started to occur. The internet access icon had a red x and when I went to diagnose the problem, it said that I needed to connect via an ethernet cable. Since then, I have connected it with an ethernet and internet works and I have also installed AVG's free antivirus software.

I have tried to
type: ipconfig /flushdns
type: nbtstat -R
type: netsh int reset all
type: netsh int ip reset
type: netsh winsock reset

But I still cannot connect via wifi. Please help

I only have internet access on the computer that is connected to it. The cell phone and laptop don't have internet. After I went to computer Management this image is what turned out. I think this problem started to happen after I tried to download a driver (HS4) and install it from the internet. I connected the Ethernet cable to laptop, but there is only internet in laptop and not in other devices.
How can I solve it?
 

Answer:Internet only works when connected with Ethernet cable

Hi Emma99, and welcome to TSG.

Were all three devices able to connect to the Internet at the same time at one time at your current location? If so, were there any changes to your networking hardware?

How are you getting your Internet service? Is it your own residential service, at school, at work, etc?

Am I safe to assume that your cell phone and laptop normally use a WiFi connection for Internet access at your location? If so, what kind of WiFi access point is being used at your location? Have you confirmed the WiFi access point is working?

I will try to explain my situation as best I could:

I have a desktop running windows XP Professional x32 SP3 and my network adapter is a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller. The desktop is connected to the network with an ethernet cable.

Here is my problem:
Up until yesterday the internet connectivity just stopped working. I am seeing a very low number of received packets as opposed to the high number when it was working. It is showing that it is connected to the network but I still can't access the internet. Also I should mention that the desktop is at work and it is connected to a DHCP server that assigns IP addresses. I have updated all the drivers and I have used Winsock Fix and Netsh but it still isn't working. However the weird thing is that if assign a static IP address to it...it works. But I can't do this because I am not suppose to hook it up to the ports assigned to the switch for static IP's. It has to be connected to the DHCP switch. Why does it work when assigned a static but not if it gets an IP assigned by the DHCP server or switch. Also even if I try to reset, renew or release the IP...when I connect again it still gives me the same IP. It wont change. Sorry if i'm not explaining too well. Again this is why i'm asking for help..i'm not too good with these things. TIA to anyone and everyone who can give me any ideas. I'll try them all..and i'll post back if it helps. Thanks again!

I've been having a problem for the last few weeks where my laptop wasn't recognizing my internet. When it stopped working I could see my connection through the network access, but it always failed to connect and the troubleshooter told me to restart my router. After trying a few times, shutting down and restarting my computer, doing a system restore, and a factory reset twice, I can connect to the internet through an Ethernet cable. However, now my laptop can't even see that any connections are available.

There are other computer in my house, all they all connect just fine. What should I do?
 

Answer:Laptop can't connect to the internet unless it's connected to an Ethernet cable

The laptops internal WIFI card has probably failed. You can get around it by using an external USB wifi adapter

I have a Sony Vaio VPCEH15EN laptop & the OS is Windows 7 home basic. I have a wifi router which is of TPLINK.

The wifi won't connect to my laptop but it works fine on my mobile..it would only start working when I use the ethernet cable. I never had this problem before. I have tried everything ..I also tried the winsockfix.bat but all my efforts have gone in vain..I just don't know if the wifi router is faulty or the modem of my ISP...Please help me solve this problem.

Best Regards,
Om
 

Answer:Wifi on my laptop won't work but works when I use the ethernet cable

I have solved the problem by myself. To do this, first you have to disconnect your Ethernet cable from your laptop and follow the steps: Start>Control Panel>Network and Sharing Center>Manage Wireless Networks and remove all wireless connections by right click on it and select Remove network from the drop down menu. After doing this, close the windows and scan for the Wi-Fi networks. Click on the available network and select connect. After a while, you will be asked to give a password for your Wi-Fi connection. Type the password and click on connect button. And now will be connected to your Wi-Fi network via wireless.

May be it will help you.

Hi All,

I have Windows Vista home premium. I moved from Chicago to Boston. Before I left Chicago, I tried removing kaspersky internet security 2011 as my laptop used to heat up and shut down often (you can hear the voice from laptop when more process are running and it shut's down). While uninstalling kaspersky, the laptop shutdown half way.

I moved to Boston, I tried connecting to wireless, it does not work. It shows connected, excellent signal strength but bytes received 0. Wireless works fine for other room mates on their laptops. If I try connecting from cable, internet works fine.

Answer:Solved: ethernet cable works, wifi does not work

The following was put together mostly by etaf with a little help from me.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Atheros Wireless Adapter - AR5007EG & AR5007
Over the last four or so years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section,

--- 3) On one occasion re-setting the router back to factory default and re-configuring the router settings has resolved the issue

--- 4) The majority of members, have now used the drivers from the atheros driver site, which has resolved the issue.

What the title says. I bought a TP-Link WDR4300 and installed it, and everything works perfectly on every device except for my laptop (Windows 8.1 Lenovo G480, running Windows Defender as AV). When connecting wirelessly, I get access to the router, but it shows "limited", and it doesn't even let me get into the setup page (192.168.0.1) and when I ping it, every packet is lost. Ethernet, meanwhile, works perfectly. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to fix it.

I'd like to attach the ipconfig outputs but my command prompt is in spanish and some of the characters are missing in the .txt file, too. I don't know how to get the file in english.

@jobeard I saw one thread you solved in which you said to mention you so you could help. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks beforehand for any and all suggestions.
 

Answer:WiFi doesn't work, Ethernet does

Hi, You will always have to use the ethernet (Cat 5) cable to get into your router's software, at 192.168.0.1, all routers are set up like that for security reasons.
It's done that way so that no one can change your settings, passwords etc using a wireless connection, you must use the Cat 5 cable to make setup & security changes.
Did you get any setup software with the TP Link router?
If you get good internet access using Windows 8.1 using the ethernet cable, it
might point to possible wireless driver issues.
It might be worth downloading the latest driver for your WDR4300 from the TP-link website;
http://www.tp-link.es/support/download/?model=TL-WDR4300&version=V1

Good morning, I have just purchased a Lenovo X200, and installed the 3G card into the machine, it was working nice, but I have experienced some problems when trying to connect by the 3G connection when i am plugged with a ethernet cable to the network at work. Explanation : At work i am having an internet connection by the ethernet cable, connected to a normal network, this internet connection has a filter not to enter in all the internet, so sometimes i need to go by the 3g connection ( opened to internet ) to look for some pages in the internet. When i try to connect to the internet by this 3G having plugged the ethernet cable, the computer does not enter into the internet, unless i unplugged the network cable. Can anyone help me? Many thanks Raul

Answer:Internet connection problem using a 3G card when ethernet cable is connected

A quick way to solve is to use the dialup connection instead of the lan one. So You will get de default gateway to the dialup connection and all should be working fine, with or w/o the wired lan attacched.

Hello,

I have a new PC (notebook) that my friend gave me. It's name is "Gigabook" which is not very famous.. I suspect it is a small company that combines hardware into a notebook.

Anyways, I have installed Windows 7 on it but found out that the internet doesn't work. for some reason I can't turn on the WiFi to find out my network and when I connect an Ethernet cable to the notebook, nothing happens..

I thought it's the driver, could download it and transfer it to the notebook via USB drive. the problem is I can't find the software anywhere..

My network card is WAN Miniport. I can check any other hardware here, it's just that you won't find anything about Gigabook..

P.S.
a) this is my first post on your forums. please forgive me if I posted in the wrong place or made other noob mistake.
b) I come from the Mac and Linux world, so I don't have a lot experience on this OS.. I'll appreciate any help.

Thank you very much in advance.

Answer:Can't Turn On WiFi And Ethernet Doesn't Work

What was the original OS? Did you run the Win 7 Upgrade Advisor before you installed Win 7? It's possible the wifi/Ethernet cards do not have available Win 7 drivers. What is the model number of your machine?

Here at work, for some months, I've been connected to my company's LAN by ethernet cable, and I could also connect to the WiFi in our office (run by our joint venture partner company). All that would happen is that as soon as I connected to the WiFi, that network became my "primary" one, i.e. if I went to check my external IP, it would be the WiFi one that would show up, and I'd have trouble connecting Outlook, etc, since my PC now thought I was on a different network).

The last few days, however, I can't connect to the WiFi at all. It finds the network, but constantly just says "Waiting For Network". However if I pull the ethernet cable out of the PC (i.e. disconnect from my company's LAN), I can them connect to the WiFi no bother.

Any ideas?

I have recently set up two Pc's down stairs next to each other. The plan was to use them for gaming but for the life of me i cannot get Ethernet & wifi to work at the same time.

Each Pc has its own wifi but gaming over wifi is slow and file transfers are painful. I can get it working but after around 5 min it will start defaulting all of traffic to the wifi.

I have tried over the last week everything I could find online. Renewing, flushing, sharing internet through one etc.

I have done an ipconfig /all on both machines whilst it was working then after it stops done at again but when I compared the results I cannot see any difference. :/

Any help would be awesome at this stage.

I recently used a program Autoruns,, and deleted some startup things I shouldn't have.. Since then I cant connect to internet, the troubleshooter for wireless adapter says the Windows wireless service is not running on this computer (WLAN Autoconfig service) and fails to start the service.
I notice on windows task manager there are only about 13 Processes running and there are usually about 20, and on Services there are about 40 running and about 100 or more stopped services. Thanks for the help

Also on startup now I have a pop up on bottom saying, Failed to connect to a windows service. Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents standard users from logging on to the system. As an administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond. And the startup and logon time is really long now

Hello

My laptop recently got a horrible virus which I managed to fix despite being a girl!
However
One of the remaining side effects of the virus is that it will not scan for wireless networks - every time I try it says :

"Windows cannot configure this wireless connection"
and
"If you want Windows to configure this wireless connection, start the Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) service"

So I can currently only connect to the internet using an ether net cable, which is very restricting as it means I can't take my laptop to a cafe etc.

Things I've tried :
> Turning it on and off again - yes - in every way - the router, the laptop, the cabelling all of it.
> Other laptops - I have had friends bring their laptops round and they have been able to scan for and connect to my wireless network - so the problem is definitely with my laptop.
> System Restore - I have tried to restore back to the week before the laptop got the virus, but this has not solved the problem.

Could it be that the virus made my computer go into some kind of emergency attack mode and then the firewall got effected?

Any advice would be very gratefully received - thanks in advance for your help!

It is a Toshiba A100-920 laptop running Windows XP.

i purchased an x61s in november and one of the things i read was it has a weak wifi antenna.  i thought this was the main problem when i traveled with the computer and certain internet sites wouldn't connect at airports, coffee shops, etc.  i just thought maybe those routers were being overloaded.  however, i have recently discovered that while sitting at home right next to the wireless router with a 100% signal that i can get on the internet and go to any site i like, but if i pull the power cord out of the side of the computer i can no longer go to certain sites like ebay or i might not be able to get on the internet at all. i took it into a lenovo tech guy today and the thing worked perfect for him in his shop running off battery power.  it connected to the internet and was able to go to sites like ebay no problem.  but when i got home i was still having the same problem i did before.  works fine plugged in, not so well unplugged. has anyone had this happen.  i'm have no idea how it could work in one place and not the other.  and why would unplugging the power cause the wifi card to have limited connections or none at all.  i have the power setting at max so its not like the computer is trying to save enrgy.

Answer:x61s wifi doesn't work with power cable unplugged from computer

Two things to try: 1. Make sure you have followed the instructions to install the latest drivers for your particular WiFi card. 2. Go to Device Manager, Select Network Adapters/Wireless card, Advanced tab and set Power Save Mode Off. Where did you read that the X61s has a weak WiFi antenna? That's just not true. I've used an X61s all over the planet (North America, Europe, Asia), and the WiFi has been awesome!

I'm having a problem with my internet connection via wifi. One day my laptop simply refused to connect. The day before no problem. I can connect by using the LAN cable, directly connecting into ADSL router, but when I try without the LAN cable plugged in, via wifi, there is no connection. What I have also noticed is that the Ethernet adapter, Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabyte Ethernet, v. 8.48, does not appear/load when I am not plugged in via cable. This was not the case when everything was working fine. Even to the point that it appears when I am on cable, but when I disconnect the cable, the Broadcom card disappears from my Device Manager.

I have tried to update the driver, but cannot find a higher version than 8.48 anywhere. Note that in the 2nd case (with LAN cable), the Broadcom Ethernet adapter appears, while in the first case it doesnīt.

Any ideas on how to resolve the Ethernet adapter issue? I could not really figure out how to update the driver properly. I tried downloading it from HP, but the system says it cannot find a more recent version, or even the one I have now.

Here is my Ipconfig for both cases:

Answer:Losing internet connection going from LAN cable to wifi, Ethernet adapter uninstalls

Hi there,

at first check out those possibilities:
When you open your network connections and go to the properties of your Lan-Connection (Cable) uncheck the box in which is says that you should be warned if this connection has low connectivity. Do that also at your wifi connection.

After that deactivate your Cable connection if you try to connect via Wifi.

Greetings!

I have an internet connection which is distributed through a wireless router. I use my laptop's (which also has a LAN adapter) WiFi to connect to that router. I have a PC too which only has LAN adapter but not the Wireless adapter.

Unfortunately I cannot wire my place as the router is in my housemate's room. I have network cables though to connect my PC and my laptop. Can I access Internet on my PC using connection between my laptop and PC and my laptop being connected to the Internet via WiFi?

I have DHCP enabled on my WiFi laptop. I am not sure what do I need to do and if I need to give static IP's to all the computers?

Thanks,
AJ
PS - I can access the router settings and I can change those settings unless it hampers my other house-mates to use the Internet.

Answer:My internet will only work through ethernet cable not wireless

The DNS settings you have appear to be for Virgin Media in UK

who is your ISP

can we see an ipconfig /all when you are connected by cable and working please

you may want to check you DNS settings and see if changing those to use google open DNS resolves the issue

Google public DNS
Note using google public DNS servers from outside the US may actually slow performace - so use the following as a test to identify DNS issues - if these resolve the issues , then we need to investigate further to optimise the use of DNS
Google public DNS
https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/

Theres also a link on how to setup those DNS IP address up on a PC
http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using.html

Then once you have set up those DNS entries

Flush & register DNS

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):
In the command prompt window that opens, type the following commands:

Ipconfig/flushdns
ipconfig/registerdns

If you receive the message
The requested operation requires elevation.
Then please open the command prompt as administrator
Start> All Programs> Accessories and then right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

now type the command again

hello ! Recently my uncle redid my other laptop to its original, out-of-the-box state due to slowness. Afterwards, when my father plugged in the ethernet cable of Motorola's SBV5120 SURFboard Cable Modem (we use the optimum service) into the computer, the computer icon at the bottom right of the screen indicated that the network was unidentified and has only local connections---therefore no internet. On the laptop I'm on right now, the network is correctly recognized and has both local AND internet connections.
Why is that ?
I concluded that since the other laptop is "redone" then I must reinstall the installation cd of the modem... and I did, today.
All went well in the installation process until the near end where the cd automatically checked to see how the connection was (btw the comp and modem). It resulted with an error stating something like that invalid or something (I forgot).
Thus, my installation attempts of the modem on the other laptop failed.
I tried to reboot both the comp and modem but still failed.
I don't understand. Why is there limited connectivity?
I don't even have perfect wireless connectivity. I mean, both of my laptops have the wireless capability and I can go around the house with the working one and find linkys with one bar of signal. But I don't have the wireless modem or something that gives stable wireless connectivity to either of them---only the motorola modem that gives internet to only 1 of the 2 right no... Read more

Answer:P L E A S E H E L P ! internet does not work even when I connect the ethernet cable

You want to first establish a connection from the laptop to the Motorola modem, with the Linksys router out of the loop. Is the laptop running Windows Vista or XP? When you go to Network Connections or Network and Sharing Center, do you see a LAN?

If you are connecting via an ethernet cord to a cable modem, then you would not need to install any modem. The disk you have for your Motorola modem may be for installing USB drivers in case you were using a USB cable.

Answer:My internet will only work through ethernet cable not wireless

There may be an issue on the ISP side or router side since restoring to defaults didnt help. Or it could be an issue with the network adapter. Or it could be an issue with the firewall.

Try downloading running these tools (download via ethernet, run on wireless): Network Fix-It Tool (right click on the internet bars on the task bar in the bottom right hand side of the screen, and click "troubleshoot network...") and Firewall Fix-It Tool.

Did you install anything on your PC before this happened? Did Windows install any updates?

Try disabling your AntiVirus. That may be the issue. I doubt it though.

Tell me if any of these solutions help.

Hello to everyone, i got this problem one day ago, and i spended some time searching for fix but nothing seems to work for me.
So i live curenlty in my campus, and I used internet normaly till this moment.
I my room there is port to connect my laptop with internet (trough UTP cable).
And i connected, like everyday, to that port with my computer, and suddenly it showed me no internet.

So i decided to take router, and connect it to that port. Then i connected my laptop to that router. Now i have internet. Also if i enable wifi from that router i can have working connection.
So to understand me right it is like this:

Port(in the wall in my room)-Router-cable/wifi to my laptop >>working
Port(in the wall in my room)-Cable to my laptop >>not working (worked before)

This doesnt happen only in my room here in campus it happens to me in all rooms, also it happens in library. The thing is i cant carry that router all the time with me so i need to fix this to work troughout my day properly.

Also to connect to campus internet i need to use proxy, which is all set up like before but ethernet doesnt work.
I hope you all can understand what is the problem.

I have Windows 10 Edu x64.

I have a Lenovo Ideapad 500 and I've been having internet connection issues since day one. Whether it's wired or wifi, it will say connected and it will never actually allow me to connect to the internet on any browser. It has Windows 10 and I've heard terrible things about Lenovo and Windows 10 issues with wifi. I've tried multiple fixes online and would appreciate any ideas on how to fix this issue where I'd be able to use the internet without hassle. Thanks.

Hi,

My wifi recently stopped working on my laptop and I'm not sure why. The internet only works if it's connected to an Ethernet cable. What can I do to fix this?

I recently restored my laptop to it's original factory system and that's when the wifi stopped working completely. Also, it's not a home problem because the wifi doesn't work anywhere.

Answer:Internet doesn't work without ethernet

Go to Control Panel - Device Manager.

Expand the Network Adapters heading.

What are the exact names listed in that heading?

--------------------------------------------------------

Are there any entries in the Device Manager that have a yellow ? or yellow ! or red X next to them.

If there is, advise what their exact names are.

What's the model name and complete model number of that HP laptop?

If you don't know for sure, advise what the product number(P/N) and/or model number(M/N) on the sticker is.

So I have a Netgear WGR614 router and when I hook it up the computer says it's connected but I can't load any web pages. If I take the router out and go straight from the modem to the computer it does work.
It has worked in the past but I've never had a perfect connection..
Would I need a new and better router or is there a different problem here?
 

Answer:Internet doesn't work when router is connected

Let's see this when you are connected directly to the modem.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.

I have enabled uPnp settings so my step son's xbox will network with my pc. I disabled this to see if it was the cause, but still had the same issue.

Hello!
I'm having problems with my Asus NV56VM laptop (windows 8). Whenever I try to use an ethernet cable to access internet I either get a SSL-error, the website doesn't load at all or it loads VERY slowly and not the whole website (it says that I have internet acces and that it's not limited). Wireless works fine though.
I've also tested playing some games (ex Call of duty) and it works fine for like five minutes and then I get an error message saying something about packages didn't receive correctly. So I'm guessing it have to do with not all information is transfered when I use ethernet.
According to the Device Manager I use "Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30)" and the drivers is up to date.

Things I've tried:
Using a different ethernet cableTesting it on a different network (at my friends house)Reinstalling drivers (both from Asus website and from Qualcomm's)Disable wirelessEmpty cache/cookiesRestarting computer/router/modemTurning off firewallSearching for virus (didn't find any)Ipconfig /release /renewTested it on different browsers (I also affects games though)Formating my laptopSSL and TSL is enable

I'm not that great with computers so sorry if I'm not so clear with everything and if there is something I've missed please let me know.

Would appriciate some help on this!

Answer:Internet not working with ethernet cable (Atheros AR8161)

This looks like a physical issue with your connector not picking up all 8 pins on the head rather than a setting problem since you have completed most troubleshooting techniques. If this is the case you may have to invest into another internal or external ethernet adapter.

Could you please complete the following command in command prompt and after 1-2 minutes terminate it with the following keys CTRL+C. Once done please post back your results


Code:
ping www.google.com -t



   Note
The command needs to be typed exactly as seen above including any spaces. Feel free to copy and paste if it is easier

Many Thanks,

Hello..
I have searched EVERYwhere but cannot seem to find a person who experience similar problem, let alone a solution.
I've been using Linksys WRT54G router for quite a while now with the two computers that i currently have. (ISP:Rogers Hi Speed) There hasn't been any problem until this week.
I haven't changed ANY settings on either my computer or my router (other than some port forwarding). All of a sudden i cant connect to the internet on one of my two computers connnected via this router (this is a wireless router, but i am NOT using wireless. All computers are WIRED to the router.)
I have tried a bunch of basic things like plugging off the modem n router, resetting the router to factory default, etc.
The compouter does recognize the router, for example, when I plug my router off, the computer says "the local area connection cable is plugged off" or something along that line. Also, the local area connection shows up on Control Panel/Network and Internet Connections.
A strange thing is, when i run the "system restore" from the start menu, the internet works. If i restart the computer, it doesnt work again.

I would really appreciate your help on this matter.
Thanks a LOT in advance.

I recently switched over to Comcast for internet and have an xfinity router. The wifi works perfectly on all computers and devices except one. It's not working on a large desktop that uses a TP-Link wireless card. When I try to connect to the internet from Firefox on this computer, it just says "Connecting..." on the top of the tab for a while and eventually goes to a "Server not found" page.

Every now and then, usually after I try something random to fix it (such as turning on "SoftAP mode" on the TP-Link card) the internet will work for a few seconds, but then it stops again.

My wi-fi is connected and says I have a strong connection however whenever I open up either Internet Explorer or Chrome, both say there is no internet connection.

This has been like this for about 25 minutes now. Prior to this, I was having issues with internet for the past day and a half. It would say I was connected but had no internet access. After removing a trojan and some malware that Norton didn't let me know about and getting rid of some of the programs I no longer use (including Norton), I now had internet access showing and it's a strong connection. UNFORTUNATELY, I can't even use the internet I apparently have access to. I've uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, I've disconnected and reconnected.

Baby steps I suppose, but now I've hit a road block. I feel like I've done everything possible but what would you guys say? Anything else I could try?

EDIT: I suppose I should mention its a Toshiba Laptop with Windows 7

Hi,

For about 4 years I have had the ability at my work place to access the LAN from my desktop via an Ethernet connection and at the same time access the internet via Wifi to a router+DSL connection. I just switched to Fios which means a new router.

Now for some reason I cannot have both connections functioning at the same time.
When they are both running:
-I cannot access internet (Wifi connects just fine, strong signal, etc... but browser can't find any addresses). If I unplug the Ethernet/LAN cable, the browser - internet access is fine.
-I cannot print to a LAN network printer, though I can still access the server on the LAN and run programs that are located on the server. If I disable the Wifi, I can print to a network printer fine.

I really need to be able to do both again. E.g when I am away, my desktop will need to be connected to the internet so I can connect to it via Logmein and access files/programs on the server.

Ok. Another annoying hassle I found. I know this one is common as I've seen it before in the past, just don't remember where to find it.

Whenever I restart my computer, I have to unplug my cable modem and router to be able to get back on the internet. I have XP Home, sp2, and full updates. Not too much of a bother as I leave my computer running all the time anyway, but when I install new programs or updates, etc, and I have to restart, it's a bitch having to go in the other room all the time to unplug and wait wait wait.. yeah.. Thanks guys

also, running wizards doesn't correct the problem. for some reason i need to do a full reset from the power source.
 

Answer:Cable Internet Doesn't work after XP computer restart.

Make sure your TCP/IP settings are grabbing DHCP (not the same as "automatically detect settings" under LAN Settings).
Make sure you are not using your ISP's software to try to connect.

I had some issues with the battery and the laptop charger, which caused it to turn unexpectadly; This led the laptop having to restore settings a few times ( I dunno if this has anything to with the problem but I it may be worth mentioning). The laptop wonīt recognize any wifi or "cable" networks now. I tried reinstalling the wifi driver, but it didnt help. When I go to my computer/properties/device manager (its in portuguese so I am using a rough translation) , the items under network adapters all show a yellow exclamation mark. I tried calling tech support but he asked to into BIOS; I couldnīt because it (the laptop) kept asking me for a password I apparently dont know so I gave up on that front.  I dunno what to do, if anybody can offer help it will be greatly appreciated. thanks all

My PC with windows 7 is the only computer with issues in the house. Ethernet works perfectly but wifi doesn't even when I don't have the ethernet hooked up. The wifi says it is connected but browsers, steam, and Itunes don't work. I have Bitdefender A/V and already tried uninstalling it, no change. I also uninstalled steam and Itunes with still no change. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the wireless adapter. I tried looking and I don't recall downloading or installing anything around the time the problem started. Before I try replacing the adapter itself, I was hoping for help here since I saw a very similar problem in another thread.

I'm in an apartment that has cable internet and i use the wifi. The first 2 months, i rarely had any issues besides a few random disconnects where i connect back and its working perfectly.


Few days ago, the electricity went out for close to 2 days. Then once electricity came back, internet worked as well but the thing is the wifi seems to have lot of issues. Some times it would work but then many hours it wouldn't so i have to connect to the internet using my iphone by tethering it as a hot spot. Im also out of the usa at the moment so data here is very expensive so i dont watch youtube or anything like that when tethering the internet.


Is there a way to find out why my internet wifi is behaving like this? The thing is i'm wondering could it be something with my laptop itself because i have had issues with it last few days. I also seen the so called blue screen... i had never seen that before with this laptop ever. Had this happen multiple times as well. Each time it does, i let it load then i restart it to safe mode... then restart it to regular mode.


The thing is i connect to the router by wired internet at the moment so i only use the wifi. However right now im not sure 100 percent if this is an internet problem or it could possibly be my laptop but i lean heavily for it to my cable internet. Is there a way to find out? Also i can connect to the wifi and it will show the 5 bars even when i can't visit sites etc.

Alright back again with another computer issue.

This time it's with a new bought Gigabyte GA-990FTXA-UD3. I've got everything working apart from this. It's my internet connection. Using the integrated network card obviously and the computer does not even respond to it when im connecting it.

Does anybody know what could be the problem.
And before you ask, Yes i do have reinstalled the OS as well as plugged directly into the modem but does still not work. I've also tried a different internet cable but didn't help either
You can find my spec's down below.

Answer:No ethernet cable connected

Legaia:

Have you checked the properties of the card? If the drivers for the card are installed, (normally comes with motherboard) and the card does not show up then your motherboard could be defective. OR, if it does show up and not working, it could be that the os turned off the network card. On the properties of the card, there is a power management tab that if not unchecked, windows could turn the card off.

So give that a shot.

Got a problem I cannot seem to solve. I need to communicate with a wifi router that is not itself directly connected to the computer in order to change its channel to improve overall signal quality for the two Wi-Fi routers I have and deconflict with a neighbor's Wi-Fi. The router I need to adjust is connected to the internet through the cable router. It is not directly connected to the computer - thus the Genie program won't talk to it. If I do wire directly to that wi-fi, the internet connection is lost (no cable port to wire it up, unfortunately) and the Genie program won't let me do anything either. So I need to know how to adjust a Wi-Fi router that is acting merely as a wireless antennae to a different router, rather than a direct connection to the internet.

Ideas?

(Background info to save time)

I have a very long house with a lot of metal in it. The Cable drop for internet is in the basement at one end. The cable router has a built in Wi-Fi serving half the house, to which I have (via a LONG cord) connected a second (NetGear) wifi router. Until recently, these have worked fine for the limited internet surfing we've done. This was necessitated by not having good signal at either end of the house if Wi-Fi was in the middle, or no signal at one end if Wi-Fi was left at one end of the house or the other. Thus, two Wi-Fi's.

However - my son is now of an age he wants to play FPS games on the laptop; meaning he needs good ping. ... Read more

Hey there,

Have been having this problem for a while. I'll try to make a long story short. I'm on a personal build computer running x58 chipset. Originally installed Windows 7. Have upgraded to 8, 8.1, 10, and then 10 anniversary addition.

The problems started once I upgraded to Windows 10.

When the computer goes idle for the day (leave for work, come home later in the day) the desktop, which is connected via ethernet, has lost it's connection and will only come back after a reboot. Troubleshooting doesn't work, and trying to disable and re-enable the NIC card doesn't work.

Once the desktop loses its connection, every device that is connected via wifi will show that it is connected, but will not load anything. As soon as I reboot the desktop, everything works fine. I DO NOT need to reboot the modem or router.

I have searched over and over and over, and have determined it is not a modem problem(comcast eMTA, in bridge mode), or a router problem (Asus RT-AC68P) so it must be a driver problem for my NIC card. I cannot for the life of me find a Marvell Yukon 88E8056 windows 10 supported driver to see if that is the issue. Maybe there are settings in the NIC card properties I need to change?

Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Desktop loses internet (ethernet) and other wifi devices stop working

It is most likely going into a Hybernate state, not a sleep state. You can try and remove the device and the drivers to see if that fixes it. Also make sure that Hibernate is disabled, by opening up a Command Window as Admin and run the following command: powercfg /hibernate off

Ok -- I have a desktop PC whose monitor card is fritzing out, but that isn't what I'm trying to fix. I have connected the PC I am using right now and the breaking one by ethernet cable. I want to recover some important files which I, Foolishly, did not back-up. I do not want to remove the HD from this one because it is an older model and I do not know much about the "Hard Drive" section of my PC...Since the monitor card isn't working at all, I cannot simply plug a USB stick into my PC and copy em...So to skip to the point "If you have two computers connected by ethernet cable, how do you have them access the others hard drive?"Lesson Learned = Always back up important data. Lol.Thanks in advance,Arti.

I recently reloaded my OS, and now my wired network card does not work.  The driver manager say the card is working fine.  But whenever I connect the network cable, there are no LED's light up on the card, and ipconfig says the cable is not connected. I know it is not the cable or router, since I pulled the cable from a working T520. Thoughts?  Did I do something wrong on the OS install, or is it hardware? Thanks Al

Answer:Ethernet Cable "Not Connected" for W510

Is the machine in a docking station?  If it is, the ethernet connection on the side is turned off and you need to use the one on the dock.  When you reloaded, did you use factory OS or did you use a retail DVD?  If retail, you will need to install Lenovo updates.  You can use wireless to get them, or use another machine.

Good day to everyone.

I came here seeking for help on my internet connection. As the title suggests, my wifi connection is working fine but internet on my desktop doesn't. I've been working on this all day already and need some help.

My internet is gone for a week now. I calles my ISP to solve it but what they did is replace my modem and leave my desktop without any connection. They just told us its a LAN problem and leave

Anyway, I searched on the internet what to do. I came up with a lot of things, specially from this site.

1. I found out that my Microsoft Teredo has Code 10 problem. I was able to solve it already through this site. I thought it would work fine now, but it still doesn't have any connection.

2. Tried running my computer through ”Selective Startup” changes on msconfig. Restarted the pc, still the same problem. Switch it back to Normal Startup afterwards.

3. Reset my IP using ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew. Also tried that command to reset winsock through cmd.

4. Run sfc /scannow but no errors.

5. Disabled Firewall and Anti-Virus

6. Restart pc everytime after I did each of the step mentioned above.

I pretty much done everything I can. If I missed something please let me know. I need to fix this today. Please. I also attached screenshots from my pc, details that you might need.

Specs:

* Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
* 3gb RAM
* Pentium (R) Dual Core Cpu E5200

This computer i own has worked fine for a long time now, so has my isp and cable modem until recently.....

2 weeks ago the cable modem started to disconnect on a almost perfect timing (About once a hour) If i take the power cord and unplug it, let it sit, then re-plug in, its fine.....for another hour.

So ive called the isp, they replaced the modem......no good.....
Called them again, they told me it was a hardware or software issue.

So i rollback with system restore to two days before the problem...cable modem stays online like it used to.

The only thing i had deleted or added to the system at this time were

Old version of adobe acrobat
Lord of the Rings online free trial.

Since it will stay on after a rollback, i know its not the NIC card but i cant for the life of me figure out were the error is coming from.

Talking to the ISP tech guy, they can ping the modem and its alive but when i ping back....it times out....

Any advice would be nice.
If i cannot find a solution im just going to reformat back to factory settings which at this point would be alot easier but im a stubborn fella.

Oh, i have run full system scan with CA virus/anti spyware provided by my isp i also have run Spybot....

I did find these entries

Mirc nHTMLn 2.9
FakeCD 99 3.0
Downloader-AK

Even after removal in safe mode, the problem still persist's with the modem until i rollback.

Thanks ahead of time!

hello guys,

I installed the same device but it's working fine (i installed one succesfully working fine) and when i go to other dsl line or other connection and i use the same model but diff mac address.

This message below appeared when i installed setup wizard from the CD setup of device WAG54G2 and i tried bridge mode only. I check the line connection is properly connected but still below message. Please help!!!

Your ethernet cable does not appear to be connected properly.

error 321: Etherner Cable not connected

Follow these steps:
1) Make sure the ethernet cable from your computer is securely connected to a LAN port on the back of your gateway
2) Make sure the power cable from your new gateway is securely connected and the lights on the front of your gateway are flashing.
3) Click Retry to try installing your gateway again.

i saw in device (WAG54G2) that the connection is green color under ADSL light it means the line is activated to the DSL.

My question is, if u can see the ADSL green light on the device it is possible also that the "gateway" is not possible connected?

Hi

i have an E-system 3115 laptop and have managed to connect to the internet using an ethernet cable to my Scientific Atlanta modem, but what i want to do is connect the ethernet cable to my Belkin Wireless G+ MIMO router and go online wirelessly.

I'm having problems doing this as it only seems to work when the cable is plugged into the laptop.

Thank you if you can help me.
 

Answer:Laptop only works when connected with ethernet cable

Have you disabled all encryption on the modem and tried to connect that way? Does the laptop connect to any other wireless networks? Does a wired connection work when you connect to the router and not the modem?

Hello all - first post!
My internet worked fine for months until about 3-4 weeks ago I stopped grabbing a connection. The link light on my modem (Linksys CM100) doesn't show a connection, though it says I'm online.

Win7 says I don't have an ethernet cable connected and I've tried 3 different cables (all known good and tested) and still nothing. I've added a PCI network adapter (known good) stripped from my other PC and still nothing. Both the onboard and the PCI card will show lights, and my PS3 (wireless as well as wired) can even connect to my computer and stream music and movies. Win7 still says no ethernet cable and limited connectivity. If I bypass the router and home run from wall>modem>PC, I don't even get limited connectivity.

If I have the link light (rare, and doesn't necessarily mean I'm connected to the internet) and I power cycle either the modem or the router, I lose the link, end of story.

Any idea what's going on? If Win7 says I have no ethernet cable connected, why can my PS3 see my computer's files? All drivers are installed properly and according to Win7 are functioning fine. I'm at a loss as to what to do. Could there be a problem that popped up overnight with my 7 install? Wiping and a fresh install is definitely on the books at this point.

Answer:Win7 says no ethernet cable is connected - it lies!

From what i understand you've doubled checked the ethernet cable from the router --> PC.
Have you tried checking the cable from the router --> modem?

The router itself could possibly be the issue.

When you bypass the router all together, what happens? Im a bit confused, No internet access at all that way either?

Have you tried:
Unplugging the power from both the router and modem, wait 45 seconds and reboot them.
Then after the reboot, run a network diagnostics.

I have a computer here that will not boot if the ethernet cable is connected. It will stall out on the bios splash screen. If you disconnect the cable and try again, it will boot fine and you can then attach the cable and have networking. It will then lock up ramdomly and you have to repeat the whole thing.
The cable looked strained, so I replaced it to no avail. Tried reinstalling the drivers for the on board LAN adapter and that didn't work either. Added a network PCI card, disabled the on board and all is fine.
Maybe someone could shed some light as to how an faulty Ethernet adapter would actually stop the POST when the cable is plugged in? Shouldn't it just skip it?

thanks,

Hello,

I have an annoying problem with my pc running Windows 7 Ultimate.
Till I connected my pc(which is a desktop without wi fi adapter) to internet using a ethernet cable and a wi fi router I had no problems. After that, randomly, but especially when browsing the internet, the computer freezes and I must restart it.

I have to mention the fact that if I connect my pc to internet using directly the cable from my ISP ( a pppoe dial-up connection) everything works fine.

All the drivers are from windows update(my Windows is genuine).

What do you suggest?
Thanks in advance.
