Wireless and Ethernet not connecting

Question: Wireless and Ethernet not connecting

I'm using a 2nd computer in the same room to type out this post.
Both the wireless and ethernet are not working on my primary computer.
When plugged in with an ethernet cord, I get a limited connectivity sign,
and when using wireless, it shows that whenever I try to connect, it fails to connect as well as limited connectivity.
Before, it was working fine, but some viruses started to mess around with the internet and registry keys, but I believe I have cleared almost all of the malware, if not all of it.
The last time I was able to connect to the internet was May 20th, I've neglected this computer for a while, and now the antivirus programs (Malwarebytes, Comodo) are out of date.
When I look at the wireless or ethernet connection status, there are 0 packets coming in or out and the ip address it attempts to connect to is 169.254.53.220
I've attempted to reset the modem and router, and set a manual address for it to connect to, but none of that helped.
What more information should I post, and what should be my first step to solving this problem?

Side note: Also, I've finally managed to accrue some money since I have a job now, but I don't remember the moderator that helped me last time, any way I can find out who he/she was? I'd very much like to thank them with a donation.

I have a PC with ethernet card and Windows XP and a laptop with wireless conncection with Windows Vista. They can both connect to internet via router but I can't connect them to each other. I tried setting up the network with every option under Network Connections on both computers but it says try different options. My router is a Zyxel P-660HW. What can I do now?
 

Answer:Connecting a wireless and an ethernet computer

To create a network that shares files, first you need to have both computers in the same workgroup, and to make things easier, you should have an account on each comp that is identical - name, password and account type. Once these are correct, then you need to share items. These can be files, folders or actual hard drives.
Please see the below articles for information and specific sharing procedures. You should also make sure your comps are fully updated.
Possible roadblocks are firewall issues and anti-virus programs.

Hello,
I have just moved to a new flat and I'm having trouble connecting to the internet through my wifi. I received a new router from my ISP and it works fine for my iPhone and iPad, and I can connect to the router via wifi, but the internet is slow at best and non-existent at worst. It does, however, work when I plug in the ethernet cable. I've renistalled the drivers for my wireless card and updated them from the manufacturer's website. I've also run a virus scan, spybot, and ccleaner, all to no avail. Any help with this would be very much appreciated. I've copy/pasted the ipconfig readout below. I would say I'm beginner/intermediate on IT matters. Thanks again in advance.

Hi All,

I have Netgear N300 (DGN3500) Wireless Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem router.
The Router has a phone socket (that is RJ 11 socket) to connect to the Internet. But in my home I have Ethernet socket on the wall. That means the Internet is coming through Ethernet cable. Can anyone advise me how to connect my ADSL2 Modem router (with the phone socket) to the Ethernet?

I bought a ISDN-DSL (8p4c-6p4c) connecting cable and it is not working when the router and Ethernet are connected.

I tested my router at one of my friend's place where ADSL connection is available and it was working when directly connected to ADSL line. Unfortunately at my home I don't have ADSL but Ethernet connection. A Waiting for an reply.
Cheers.
Hfdo
 

Answer:Connecting ADS2 Wireless Router to Ethernet

Do you even have internet service at your house? DSL comes over a phone line, not Ethernet. If there's a ethernet jack there it runs somewhere and from there it needs to be connected to a modem or a router. The only type of internet you can get right from an ethernet connection is metro-ethernet.

It should be:

Phone Line coming into house -> Modem/Router -> Devices plugged into the modem/router's ethernet ports. The jack you are talking about, the other end should be plugged into the modem which in return should be plugged into a phone line. Check you basement, garage, utility room for anything like that.

I've been trying to use my laptop (Lenovo IdeaPad Y580) as a wireless adapter for my Xbox 360 by bridging the LAN/Wireless networks and connecting the Xbox to the laptop via Ethernet. The wireless works fine normally, but when I plug the Ethernet cable into the computer, the laptop automatically disables WiFi and changes to a LAN connection. It doesn't give any options whatsoever to reconnect to wireless, just forces me to use the Ethernet connection. As soon as the cable is removed the wireless connection returns, but for what I'm trying to do to work, I need both LAN and wireless to be working simultaneously, and the wireless providing the Internet connection. I've also tried connecting the laptop to a router via Ethernet and received the same result, so I'm pretty sure it's something on the laptop that's causing it. Is there a way to change this so the laptop can use the wireless connection while plugged into another device via Ethernet? Thanks to all who respond.

Hi, I hope you can help - I am trying to connect a ZyXEL P660HW Wireless ADSL Modem router to my Windows XP SP2 desktop computer. I have had various problems but have now managed to get my LAN connectivity back and this is telling me my LAN is connected but the LAN socket on the router is not lighting up when I connect the ethernet cable into the back of the PC.

When I try to connect to the internet via the router nothing is happening and I get the following message after running network diagnostics:-

Error attempting to validate Winsock base providers:2

Not all base service provider entries could be found in this winsock catalog. A reset is needed.

I have run several winsock fixes, they all tell me the catalog has been repaired but I am still getting this error. I have re-set the router (several times) and have configured the IP address and default gateway. I can connect to the internet using my Speedtouch modem with no problems at all.

I have run out of ideas - please help!!

Basically, I've moved into a university residence and paid for Internet access, but when I plug in using the ethernet cable or try to connect to the wireless network (the router is TP-Link TLWR700N), my computer gives me the sad face and restarts. It can't restart successfully if I leave the ethernet cable in, either. The moment it crashes seems to be when it identifies the network (because it'll say 'Identifying...' for a bit first, and before I activated my internet it would just stay on 'Identifying...' forever).
I'm going to be out for a couple hours but when I come back I can add any additional details that are needed, just let me know.

I have read several solutions to similar problems but they do not work in my situation for some reason. (including the colledge dorm and router to router solutions)

MY SETUP
I am work on drilling rigs at remote locations way up North. As such my internet come to me via satellite. I do not have access to the modem (if you even call it that in this situation). All I have in my building is a wire called a "Pason Cable" that enters through the wall.

Only one computer on location has the necessary port on the back to connect to this cable. (window 2000 OS)

This computer then has a cable which I believe is called an eithernet cat 5 port with a cable coming out of it. We have always connected this to various wireless routers. (Different people bring their own)

I recently purchased a new D-link DIR-625 wireless N router.

I have it hooked up with the cable out of the aforementioned computer going into the "internet" port on the D-link.

The Problem
Computers can connect to the new D-Link with 100% signal but cannot connect to the internet. The router confirms that the is no connection to the internet via a flashing light indicator.
Attempted Solutions
I have attempted to use the other solutions on this site:
-Disable DHCP and set the first three numbers of the routers IP address to the same as the host computers, and the last to 254.

-I have also connected the line out of the first computer directly to a second computer (internet works when I do this... Read more

Last week or so, we had a storm, and devices got unplugged. Internet service was out briefly. Wireless internet came back shortly after, but my desktop and our PS4 both can't connect to the internet via ethernet, and I can't figure out why. I've done the usual stuff: power cycle, tried out other ethernet cords, etc. Comcast has said that it's not on their end, and our wireless signal is fine, so we're clearly getting signal through the modem and out through the router. My desktop is plugged into a different modem, but also won't connect to the one attached to the router. A hard reset of the modem didn't help, whether through the button or through the configuration settings. My desktop is claiming that there's no ethernet cable plugged in, though there definitely is. I'd suspect a broken port if the PS4 weren't having the same issue. I've tried a few things on the desktop, including installing the most recent drivers for the network adapter, rolling back the driver, disabling/renabling, and just deleting it and let it reinstall one on restart, and trying to reset the IP stack. I'm posting links to screenshots of some of the command prompt commands I've tried, and the results. They vary a little bit, I've gone into the registry to enable some permissions after access was denied. Any ideas you can send my way are greatly appreciated.

I have a sagem 3304 wifi modem router provided by the telecoms company. it has a limited wifi range and in my experience of wifi it also has frequent dropouts/connection problems. we connect the desktop pc to it by ethernet and that's just fine.

we also were given (by a 3rd party) a belkin n1 wireless router (the model without modem) and would like to try it out to be the wifi router. The idea is to connect it by ethernet to the sagem and place it in a more central part of the property. I reckon about 15m of ethernet cable. we would disable the wifi on the sagem. had we been given the belkin model with internal modem, this would not be an issue and we would not need to use the sagem at all - that is not meant to sound ungrateful!!

can anyone see any pitfalls with this? or if it is do-able, any recommendations re:configs?

I have found another post loosely related to using 2 routers however it doesn't really address this specifically:
http://forums.techguy.org/networking/715999-using-2-routers-same-time.html
 

Answer:Connecting a wireless router to a modem router via ethernet?

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

but now that i have the cable, i realize i have no idea how to connect using it instead of the wireless. im using windows 7, which i'm new to and it's been a while since i didnt use wireless. i thought all i had to do was connect the cable to my pc and that would do the job but its not.
 

Answer:connecting via ethernet

If your wireless connection is showing a weak signal just a room away from the Router, there are a few things to look at.

A lot of the older cordless phones operate on the same 2.4ghz band as the wifi signal. Make sure there are no wireless phone base stations between you and the Router.

A microwave oven can also completely disrupt a wifi signal but only when the Microwve is running.

The most common cause is having another Router from a neighbor interfering with your signal by being on the same wireless channel. Netstumbler is an excellent utility that will show you what other wifi signals are in the area and will also tell you what channel they are on. Try to set your router up to be on an unused channel.

As far a using the Ethernet, A lot of Laptops running Win7 turn the Ethernet Controller off when running on the battery. If the controller is on, it should simply be a matter of plugging the Ethernet cable in to the computer.

Hello.

A thunderstorm knocked out my cable Internet connection 2 weeks ago.

Several cable technicians came to my house. The last said that my Ethernet card was probably not working. I'm connecting through the USB port at the moment.

I was thinking of just using an adapter to turn the USB into an Ethernet port, to save myself the trouble of installing a new Ethernet card. However, my connection has been slow since we were connected through USB, and I'm worried that this will continue if I merely use an adapter.

Does anyone have a recommendation as to whether I should change the Ethernet card or use the adapter? We want to use our router again (for Vonage) and eventually, we may get a wireless router.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi

Was just wondering whether it is possible to connect a normal Ethernet connection to ATM. I'm currently doing a networking module at university and we need to give 50 users access to a network. Each user needs to have access to 600mb connection in order to use an application. Is it possible to connect each work station up with normal Ethernet using CAT6 to a hub and then connect the hub to an ATM connection. As far as I can see this is the only choice anyone got any ideas!

This device is designed to connect to a network. Why not pick up a cheap broadband router and connect it the right way, it'll be a lot less complicated? I'm guessing it will be looking for a DHCP server, so you'd probably have to use ICS on that machine to get it to be recognized.

Connect the ShowCenter Player to your home network with the supplied Ethernet cable or 802.11g wireless card. The player automatically detects and connects all PC servers on your home network.

First off, do you have user access accounts for both computers? I learned that when using my WinXP-Win98FE crossover cable connection you need a user ID on the Windows XP machine. That's so you can access the files/folder being shared.

For example when you log on to Windows 98 and it ask for a user ID and password right? So make sure that the user ID and password are the same as the one on the XP machine.

You can try www.wown.com. It helped me alot with some basic network stuff.

Also tried the ethernet and is not even recognized by laptop.

did a clean install and updated the network drivers.

Based on reading i've done ipconfig /all and it times out for default gateway, although it passed twice right before copying the below results.
my conclusion is some part is failing maybe but what? it is really odd that i can connect to the wifi router as my other computer does but not load anything. (it kinda loaded half of the google home page once)

Really appreciate any help. thanks

Answer:help with connecting to internet via ethernet

Well, Comcast is a cable ISP, so maybe you can tell us what you really have there.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Make and exact model and hardware version of any other network equipment, like a repeater, a booster, hi-gain antenna, etc.
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
For wireless laptops, have you made SURE the wireless switch is on?
For wired connection issues, have you booted in Safe Mode with Networking to see if that changes the symptoms?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they expe... Read more

I just reformatted my new build after i been using it for about 3 months to clear out some problems Ive been having. After I have gotten everything together, all my stuff reinstalled and such I go to click on the internet and it doesn't go to any webpages. Now, this exact same situation happened to me when I first built my computer and I ended up going into one of the option menus and changing something and it worked perfectly after that....only problem is I don't remember what I did last time and I have been trying different things for the past week, so i need some help. here is the basic situation I have....I have cable internet. i don't have a modem in my computer because there is no need, i don't need dial up.

I have a desk top computer that is connected to a cable modem. I am trying to connect my laptop to that modem by the ethernet cable. This laptop has never been connected at this site before. When I connect the cable and open my network connections I have a wireless connection (which doesn't respond because there is no router) and a "1934 Connection" which says "connected, firewalled". I am not able to open the internet. I thought this was just "plug and play" but apparently not. How can I set up this connection so I can get online?
 

Answer:Connecting Laptop to Ethernet

If you are trying to connect with an ethernet cable, you need to have a Local Area Connection in Network connections, but it seems you do not have that.

Since you haven't told us what OS > Right click on My Computer/Computer and choose properties. Click on Hardware, then Device Manager. Check for Ethernet Controller or Other Devices. Your ethernet may be disabled or not installed properly.

Hello ... I have a new printer (kyocera fsc5025n) that I want to connect to a pc via the NIC on the printer, to the NIC on the pc. I can find the appropriate IP address for the printer, and I know how to add a printer using tcp/ip (I think)
Question is ... the pc I want to connect to has a USB hpna network device fitted which connects to a distant pc. The IP is 192.168.0.2
There is no possibility of fitting hubs or anything between the pc's as in different buildings.
If I install drivers on the pc, and add printer using tcp/ip, will this interfere with the hpna network already installed?
If it's ok, should the ethernet connector on the pc use a different IP to the one used for the hpna network?
i.e. set ethernet on pc to 192.168.0.xxx and sub to 255.255.255.0 and set static IP at printer.
There is no need to share the printer across pc's .... just need to access from single pc.
If that will work, must the cable be crossover or straight thro?
Thank you. Cheers Plbee

My problem is that the computer says that there is not cable connected (although a connection does flash up briefly every so often).

I have already: tested that the cable and port work using my laptop (no problem there)
uninstalled my network card and allowed windows to re-install it
checked for loose connections

I have also noted that the light in the Ethernet port on the computer is lit solid yellow when the cable is connected and the computer in not turned on but as soon as i boot it up and the OS starts running the light turns off.

Hello,

I bought a used usb ethernet adapter for my friends laptop, in order to connect him to the internet via high speed. The problem I am facing is that the adapter did not come with an install disk, and although the drivers are dowloadable from the manufacturers web site, I cannot get the program to initiate once downloaded. Basically, I am downloading the driver on my computer, and then transfering the file exactly as it comes in over to his computer via a 3.5 inch disk. However, none of the files on the disk are executable, none of them Run or initiate any kind of an install process. When you download, it gives you the option to open, and when you choose this it brings you to a dos prompt, but because his computer cannot currently connect to the internet, I have no means it seems of getting his computer to this stage even, and further, I do not know what to do even after getting to the dos prompt. Help please!! Thank you!!

Answer:Laptop only connecting via ethernet

What type of encryption are you using in the Router's wireless security settings? If the new laptop's wireless adapter doesn't support the type of security in use, it won't connect, so this setting might have to be changed.You can tell from the wireless connection in your existing Laptop the type of security in use, but how you do it depends on the operating system - XP, Vista or 7.

I have an unusual issue that seems to have just started occurring over the past month. My i-7 desktop with 16 gb RAM is connected to my router via an Ethernet cable. Connection speed (upload and download) is 25-30 Mbs. Have Windows 10 Anniversary Edition fully updated.

If I'm not planning to use the desktop for awhile, I completely power down. In the past, when I have powered up, I would get an internet connection instantaneously. Now when I try to load my browser (whether Edge or Chrome), there's no connection. I'm having to wait say 15 seconds before a connection is established. I realize this is not much of a lag, but annoying since I have to "Retry" a couple of times before the connection is established.

Any thoughts? I haven't installed anything in probably a year other than Windows, Avast antivirus and Malwarebytes updates.

I'm trying to use a router to establish a wireless connection with a machine running XP Home Edition, Service Pack 2. I've connected successfully in the past with other machines (including now, as I write this), so it doesn't seem to be the router or the modem that's the problem. What's more, it's not XP, since there's another machine that can connect fine.

So, I'm stumped. I've contacted both my ISP and the manufacturer of the router, but not much help there.

Any thoughts? The machine sees the wireless connection fine, will attempt to connect and will actually say that it was successful in connection -- but there's no access to the internet and the status is actually limited or no connectivity.

Hello Guys,

I am having trouble with my wireless connection. It was working fine till a couple of days back and then started acting up. Let me explain the problem in detail.

System connects to the router. It shows full signal. After 10-15 seconds the wireless gets disconnected. After that the behaviour is quite varied. Sometimes the router itself is not recongnized. Sometimes the router is recognized but the system doesnt connect. If I force it to then it again says cannot connect to a hidden network. After a while maybe 4-5 mins later it recongnizes and tries connecting again sometimes it succeeds sometimes it doesnt.

My System Specifications are given below.

1. Samsung Ultrabook Series S - Model NP530U3C-A01UK
2. Processsor - Intel COre 5-3317U CPU @1.70 Ghz
3. Windows 7 Hope Premium - 64 Bit OS
4. Wireless Network Adaptor - Intel Centrino Advaced N-6235
5. ROuter - Thomson
6. 6GB RAM

A Little bit about my Home network
There are 5 devices connected usually. My Wife's PC which is a Dell Inspiron and runs on Windows 7 Home premium, My Ipad, 2 of our Smart Phones and My PC. Every other device currently works fine except mine. So looks like the problem is with my system rather than the router or network provider.

Answer:Connecting to Wireless Router keeps connecting and disconnecting

I hate to say it, but since you have done everything I would have done, its possible the wireless adapter is broken/not functioning correctly. Is the product still under warranty? Especially since you stated that other devices connect just fine.
So its probably not the router.
The only other thing I can think of to try would be to buy another wireless router and test it with that.
If you have no problems, something is amiss.
You could also set your router back to factory defaults and try again.

It would have that yellow triangle on the bottom saying no internet, then either it will come back, or i would have to disconnect the ethernet cable and re-connect it to get internet connection again.
- It is not the modem or the router as my wifi and my ps3 (which is connected via ethernet) never disconnects.
- It is not the wire as i have replaced it.
- It is not a damaged port on the router as i have switched to different ports.
- I removed every power saver on the battery options as it could be reason
I am out of ideas. Anyone know what could be the porblem? Could it be a bad ethernet line on my laptop?

Hi msrdude

I doubt it is ethernet port on laptop as I assume it was working fine before your new modem router.

I would try, disabling IPv6. Simple to do and simple to reverse.

Am trialling Windows 8 at the moment and while the wired Ethernet connection on the test machine was working initially following the Windows install, it is now out of action: no lan, no internet. I've tested the network cable with another (Win 7) machine and it works fine. Am connecting directly to a broadband modem/router with an in-build DHCP server and no restrictions of note.
Windows detects the on-board adapter as an Intel 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection and reports it as 'working properly' in Device Manager. The driver version is reported as 9.13.41.1 dated 27/09/2011 from Microsoft. However, when the machine starts up it fails to obtain an IP address from the DHCP server and defaults to whatever IP Windows uses when in doubt (169.254.83.87). An ipconfig /renew command results in an error ("error occurred while renewing interface Ethernet: unable to contact your DHCP server...").
I also noticed I have a Microsoft Kernel Debug Network Adapter listed in Device Manager, which I have disabled in an unsuccessful attempt to resolve this problem.
I have tried assigning a static IP/gateway to the Intel device and have also disabled IPv6. Have disabled the Windows Firewall. No success. Have tried a winsock reset and reboot, no success.

Answer:Problem connecting via ethernet to router

I started your own thread for you here.

Getting an APIPA (169.254.x.y) means that the computer did not get a IP assigned by the router. Could be that the router's Dhcp server is disabled or its address range is exhausted, defective cable, defective NIC, incorrect driver, or a firewall/security suite issue.

My top suspect (should I say educated guess since we haven't done any trouble shooting yet?) is that Norton is not properly configured or is corrupted. It may be configured to allow the public IP you get when connecting to the modem but to block the private IPs from the router. Suggest that you uninstall Norton and run Symantec's Norton Removal Tool. You can then reinstall it, if desired, after the problem is solved.

Also, in whatever order you prefer, check out those two Dhcp server issues and the cable possibility.

Answer:Wifi not connecting without Ethernet cable

If you can't connect with Wi-Fi plugging in an Ethernet cable is bypassing the wireless entirely. Have you checked Control Panel, Device Manager [or right-click the Start button and choose Device Manager], see if maybe you need to download then install drivers for your Wireless Network adapter? Check the Network work section, are there any yellow symbols there? Is the Wireless adapter listed? If so maybe it needs to have the drivers updated, right-click and make the choice while still connected. The downside to Upgrading to Win10 is the "it worked in Win7 w/SP1 or Win8.1" doesn't guarantee it works in Win10 without updating drivers that Microsoft may not yet have available, they usually come from the manufacturer of devices.

Hello all,

I've seen many forums with the same issues, but to no avail I still am experiencing the same problems.

I was given my desktop about a week ago by my uncle, and I wiped it cleaned and installed Windows 10 Pro. I go to connect the Ethernet cable and it says "Network cable unplugged".

I've tried updating the drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, and even changing the duplex to 100 Mbps Full and Half.

The network adapter is a Marvell Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller.

Thanks.

Answer:Problem Connecting To Internet Via Ethernet

I haven't seen any W10 drivers for that adapter ( by googling ) and it originally came out in 2006 ( according to Marvell's support site ) so it's possible that it won't work with W10 or it could be that it just died. The newest driver I saw from Marvell was W8, did you find a W10 driver for it?

Answer:Lenovo G50-70 not connecting to wifi and ethernet

hi maffsojah,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
When you open the properties of the ethernet device, do you see an error stating that the drivers can't be loaded?
 - Sample image
 
Things that you can try:
 
1. Follow this guide on how to disable automatic driver installation
 
2.  For the Ethernet: open Device Manager > Network Adapters > Realtek PCI GBE Family Controller (right click > uninstall) and ensure the "delete device driver" is checked.
 
When finished, navigate to the Control Panel (icon views) > Programs and Features and uninstall the Realtek Ethernet Controller driver then reboot.
 
After the reboot, install this ethernet driver. If there's no improvement, navigate to Device manager > Ethernet Controller (right click > choose Update Driver Software) > Browse my computer for driver software > Browse and point it to c:\drivers\Realtek Lan Driver\WIN8\64 and observe.
 
3. For the Wireless LAN adapter, the steps are similar to Step 2 above but instead, you will need to uninstall the wireless LAN driver and re-install it.
 
If you have an Intel Wireless Card (e.g., Intel 7260), then you will need to re-install this wireless LAN driver. Otherwise, follow this guide on how to identify the correct wireless driver by its hardware ID.
 
After installing the driver, check the device manager > network adapters if it's clear of errors and see if you can now conn... Read more

I have a (nearly worthless) Verizon Wireless Broadband Card.
But have been in a hotel for awhile with free internet, so have been connecting using their Ethernet (cable from wall connector to my computer).

My old computer is here (Windows XP Home) , and I am currently using their Ethernet service to type this. So the service, wall connector, cable, are all working.

But on my newer computer (Windows Vista Home Premium) , which is what I've been using the Ethernet on for months, the service stopped connecting to the internet yesterday.

Periodically the hotel ethernet will stop working. If I put my cursor on the dual computer icon in my system tray during such times , it says "Local Only". When the internet connection is working, it will say "Internet and Local".

Since yesterday, the hotel ethernet is working again. Confirmed as mentioned by my being on the internet right now using the Ethernet with my old computer. Also confirmed with hotel staff.

But the new computer still says "Local Only" when I plug in the Ethernet cable.

I could not discover the problem, so I did a System Restore to about 3 days ago, in case a setting had been changed somehow.
But the restoral made no difference - it still says "Local Only".

Help please.

Answer:Ethernet mysteriously not connecting with internet.

The downside to Upgrading to Win10 is the "it worked in Win7 w/SP1 or Win8.1" doesn't guarantee it works in Win10 without updating drivers that Microsoft may not yet have available, they usually come from the manufacturer of devices.

my dad bought a wireless router so that we can have the internet on our computer and so i can go online on my ps3 aswell

however, i have a problem, my computer/laptop is quite old (bought in 2002) and it does not have an ethernet port to plug the ethernet cable in (or just not one the right size anyway). Since the instalation CD that came with the "D-Link DKT-710 Wireless G ADSL2 +starter kit" router says that to intall the router you need to switch it on and connect it to the computer via the ethernet cable.

thats the problem, how can i connect it to the computer if my computer doesnt have an ethernet port...?

are there any routers that do not use ethernet cables, or do i just have to buy a new computer if i want to have a wireless network(or any network for that matter)...?

any suggestions on what i should do, or what other router would work ?.......and incase you need to know, my current modem connects through a usb port to my computer, aparently that effects what type i will need.
 

Answer:connecting my router, ethernet problem...

You can buy add-in cards that add networking functionality. I have a few old PC's that I have had to put in a PCI ethernet card into. You can also get wireless but for a desktop, I recommend ethernet.
If it's a laptop, you can get a card that fits into the expansion slots on the side. If you don't have those you can get them with USB. USB would also work on a desktop if your not confident in delving into your computers innards.
Personally I would use USB as a last resort as they are known to be unreliable. I'd go for expansion slot in a laptop and get a wireless card and get a PCI ethernet card if it's a desktop. Either are easily available from local computer stores or bigger chains. If you know online sites, they would have them too.

PC#1 windows 2000+Ethernet card+usb 2.0 port
PC#2 windows 2000+Ethernet card+usb 2.0 port

I have an ADSL modem (BT Voyager 205 http://www.voyager.bt.com/205/prodinfo.htm). This modem has a usb connection and an Ethernet connection. i guess it was designed for a PC and console to be accessed. Both connections can be used to connect 2 different PC's and access the Internet simultaneously. one uses the usb port other uses the Ethernet port.

Both PC's need to be able to log onto the internet without the need for the other one to be 'powered' on (rules out ICS).

I am trying to enable both PC's to be able to communicate and make file transfers etc. or at least have a directory or folder from which i can make a file transfer.

I realise a simple solution is to get a router etc but i have been told that for just 2 PC's is it possible to connnect ... 'using map network drive'.

I also realise i can create an ICS connection ... connecting first pc using USB 2.0 into primary pc and using twisted RJ45 cablebetween the 2 pc's ethernet cards. however, this means primary pc is always needed to be 'on' for secondary to connect ...

my adsl provider, has confirmed that this modem can connect 2 pc's one with the usb nad one with the ethernet. They also gave hints that once the two pc's are connected I can use 'map network drive' to configure the two pc's to communicate. However, this is not supported in helpdesk... Read more

Answer:connecting 2 pc's via modem with USB/Ethernet connections

It doesn't look like you would need to get a router as the documentation link you provided already states that "The BT Voyager 205 Router is a state of the art ADSL Router ..."

No other help is on the BT page (always just directing to BT support desk - how useful!). But I would say that if you run a small 4-port switch hub out of the Ethernet port you could run all your PCs off that and ignore the USB connection altogether. It might simplify things, as then you don't need the software to run a USB connection installed on the PC currently connected to the USB port. (assuming all PCs have an appropriate EThernet card available).

Oddly the guide at http://www.f9.net.uk/support/hardware/voyager205_setup_guide.pdf states
"You can now plug computewrs into the router using either the USB (blue) or Ethernet (grey)", which might imply that use of USB or Ethernet is an OR rather than an AND situation, i.e. you can't use both simultaneously. But I am not familiar with the model.

As this device is a router anyway you don't want to be trying to use ICS as well as that is just a "software router" which will only confuse the situation.

Win 10 home, 64-bit on HP Laptop. just upgraded from Win 8.1.

I have a 2.4MHz Network with a Guest account.
My network shows up in wifi as eg. ssidname-2G and ssidname-2G-guest. I can log in and use either of these connections to successfully connect to the Internet. No issues there.

My Ethernet NW adapter (when in use) always shows as being connected via the ssidname-2G-guest connection. This worries me as the guest connections as I understand it are inhibited from accessing certain system functions.

Can I change the connection Ethernet connects on to ssidname-2g ?

I don't believe the W10 upgrade created this situation- I think it was probably always like that.

I don't recall specifically assigning it to the guest account and am worried it may mean I am not getting access to full system functions.

Appreciate any help. Thanks.

Answer:Why is Ethernet connecting via my guest network?

Looks like it may be a nothing.. I turned off that Guest network (which is a wireless network) in my router and my Ethernet still connects to the internet and works correctly.

For some odd reason, it seems my Ethernet adapter just decided to use that name.

All very confusing

Hi there everyone! Hope you can help me with my annoying dilemma!

Just made an ethernet cable long enough to connect my two computers and plugged it in.
Computer1----->Computer2------>wireless connection to the router

All i want to do is file sharing, as i have music ect on computer two which i want to use through computer 1, the LAN shows its connected, ive set the workgroups to the same, but neither computer has any IP information when i click on the status of the connection.

Any help will be much appreciated, and sorry if this is a daft question.

Thanks
Max

p.s. i remembered the pin swap, so it is a crossover cable!

One computer is running XP pro, and the other computer is running XP home, my router is acting as the DCHP server, but basically i want the ethernet connected computer to run independant of the network.

Its only going to be used to watch the music/video off the computer that its plugged into, and connecting it to the wireless network would severely cap my speed!

Any helps appreciated, thanks

Hello all,

I've seen many forums with the same issues, but to no avail I still am experiencing the same problems.

I was given my desktop about a week ago by my uncle, and I wiped it cleaned and installed Windows 10 Pro. I go to connect the Ethernet cable and it says "Network cable unplugged".

I've tried updating the drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, and even changing the duplex to 100 Mbps Full and Half.

The network adapter is a Marvell Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller.

Hey there,

Since yesterday everytime I connect my ethernet cable into the port my computer locks up with 100% processor taken, and this doesn't stop. It even does it in safe mode, when I disconnect the cable all is well again. However unfortunatly I cannot use the internet because there is no cable.

I have done the following:

Trojan/Virus Scan
System Restore
Restore to Factory Settings
Updated Drivers (transferred via USB from another computer)
Ad/malware scan

and it is still not detecting anything. Cannot do "hijack this" lock because the computer crashes, no abnormal processes running at current time.

Slightly annoying because it just happened overnight, and my university is meant to have a strict firewall about anything like that getting in...

anyone have advice? The 2 lights flash on the network adapter, which indicates something is actually happening. When I disconnect and view network log via CTRL + ALT + DEL the network is indeed being used a lot.

I have Vista.

I'm trying to connect my desktop, whose wifi mysteriously stopped working, back into my wireless network. Having finally given up on doing it wirelessly, I was about to cave and go buy a long ethernet cable to connect to the router directly when I had a thought. Is it possible to connect my desktop to my laptop via an ethernet cable and then just piggyback off of my laptop, whose wireless connection does work?

I tried just plugging an ethernet cable in to the two computers, but that didn't work (and, in fact, screwed with my laptop's wireless, but that's another, already solved problem). I have no idea what other information you might need, so just ask.

Answer:Connecting to a wifi network via ethernet

I think what you have to do is go to the network and sharing center in Control Panel, click Adapter settings. Then highlight both adapters and right click. Select Bridge connections. I'm not sure if that does it or not. It's been a while since I've done something similar, but its worth a shot.

Hello,

I'm not sure if this belongs in hardware or software, so mods, please feel free to move if need be.

Recently I had to re-install Windows XP Pro on a system I picked up for free to use as a back up if my main PC failed (which of course it did before I ever got around to configuring the back up system). The PC is pretty much a bare bones system and was a cutom build.

After re-installing XP, I realized I hadn't saved any of the hardware profiles and now I can't get the ethernet to work - needs drivers. Problem is, I don't have them.

The motherboard is an Asus P5L MX and the stamp on the ethernet box inside the macchine is stamped FoxConn. The machine is aproximately 4-5 years od give or take.

Any help anyone can offer would be of much help.

It mainly depends on the plans of your ISP, in India. If your ISP is BSNL, it is a simple configuration in the modem to prevent/allow automatic connection. Put "Yes" there.

If it is a private broadband, they generally does not allow automatic login to network; if it is not a lease line. If yours a private broadband, and you dont want automatic login, stop paying the extra fee for a lease line.

Am I missing something?

Answer:connecting ethernet cable to tower unit

(or any other router for that matter) to a computer initially, so you can configure the router's settings - primarily the username and password combination which it will offer to your ISP. The settings are permanently written to the router's firmware via an HTML interface, and you access this via an Ethernet cable (supplied with the router)from any computer with an Ethernet network card. Your laptop will almost certainly have such a port at the back or side, so you could use that.The router will then automatically establish the connection when it's turned on.If your PC has no LAN port you could indeed buy a USB wireless network adapter to use in that machine, if you don't fancy opening up the case to fit a PCI network card.

So about 6 months ago my internet got shut off for a few days. I was still able to connect to an open wifi from my house. I then connected my laptop to my desktop using an ethernet cable. On the laptop all I had to do was go into the adapter properties and select to share the connection. Everything worked perfectly. Fast forward to now - the desktop refuses to connect to the laptop. Same open wifi, same laptop, same desktop, same ethernet cable, but I get no connection. It just says "identifying" forever and then sometimes the laptop gets an error about 2 computers with the same IP address. I tried the bridging method, it did not work.

It's getting very frustrating to the point of kicking my beloved desktop to pieces. Can anyone help?

Hi

For a while now I've been experiencing strange problems with my Internet connection. I've got my laptop connected to the Internet via an ethernet port with a cable. On some days or at certain times of the day my Internet connection is fine with no problems but then for some reason it becomes so slow it's not possible to use. This happens quite regularly and it's becoming annoying because it makes it hard to do my Uni work in my flat.

I contacted ask4 through email as they provide the Internet service. They made me run some tests to identify where the problem lies. They think that it's most probably a problem within my laptop rather than the port in my room as when I ran the same test on my laptop but in my flatmates room with her cable, I still experienced the same problems. However they could not help in fixing this which is why I'm posting here. The technician said I should say that my laptop is losing around 50% of its packets when connecting to a Local Area Network via my ethernet port.

I'm hoping someone very kind can help me sort this out.

I would say its more a network firewall than a specific Vista fault, I doubt you could just connect any PC to their network without permissions being set on maybe a central computer or within the router itself. Most big companies have something like this sort of action as your basically connecting an unclean PC to a network with sensitive data and you could be bringing any viruses or trojans into the network.

I can set access right to specific computer from within my router and stop any alien commputers from connecting fullstop.
