Ethernet to wireless adapter

Question: Ethernet to wireless adapter

I network an XP box and a 98 box via wired Ethernet. Currently, a DSL connection is shared via a Zoom modem with a built-in router (5651_X4_2_2) connected to a Linksys switch (EtherFast 10/100 5-Port Workgroup Switch EZXS55W).

Just bought a laptop with a wireless card installed and want to share Internet connection and files wirelessly as already done via wired Ethenet (between XP box and a 98 box). Laptop features VISTA Home Premium.

Instead of connecting the Laptop to the switch via a patch cable (to share DSL and files), thought maybe there's a type of Ethernet to wireless adapter product that simply plugs into a port on the switch that would in turn transfer a wireless signal to the laptop. Or not?

Thanks in advance.

Is there a point for getting something like this ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...ark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=3#scrollFullInfo ) and connecting it via ethernet compared to a standard USB adapter? My room is a floor up and on the opposite side of the house of where the router is located.

Wasn't sure if this was supposed to go here or in networking, so I just put it here.

My family recently got a new desktop computer and my parents are putting it in my brothers room, which is near the opposite end of the house where the router and modem is. Should I just tell them to get some retartedly long Ethernet cord, or is there a good enough wireless adapter I could buy? I know direct connections are almost always better, but I don't think there is a store that sells long ethernet cords that stretch across my house, which is pretty big.
 

Answer:Solved: Ethernet Cable or Wireless Adapter?

It's easy enough to get an Ethernet cable up to 100 meters, and I'd guess that's long enough.
There are many factors that affect wireless reception, including the construction of your dwelling and the hardware you use, so I'd ask a mod to move this to the networking forum where you might get better help.

Greetings,

We have Flatron N2311AZ all-in-one PCoIP zero clients. For several months we have been using an HP t5740e Thin Client as a kiosk in facility lunchrooms so employees could print their paystubs and check their employee account. We will be rolling out a SharePoint website soon that contains MBO data. Thing is, the MBO is different and needs to be private for each division around the world; not a problem, easy to do with security groups in Active Directory and SharePoint. However, this presents a problem: our kiosk Thin Clients are not joined to the domain and they are WIRELESS (there are no network drops where they are deployed), and joining them to the domain and using a generic account isn't too great for our scenario; it would be best to use a zero client and a dedicated VDI & separate user login for each division. Problem with this is that our Zero Clients do not have wireless capabilities, that is unless we take a very short Ethernet cable and plug it into a device that can connect them to the wireless network.

Cliff:
Need a device that will establish a connection to a configured wireless network and is directly connected to a zero client via CAT 5/e Ethernet cable.

Suggestions? Not looking for anything complicated or does more than it needs to. USB wireless adapters would be great, but these are zero clients so that won't work. Only way is to do it through the wired NIC port and somehow convert that into wireless connectivity.
 

Answer:Looking for simple Ethernet --> Wireless adapter for all-in-one Zero Client

I will try and make this a simple as possible. I have 2 laptops. The first is running Windows 7 ultimate and the other, Ubuntu 12.04. They are connected via Ethernet through a Linksys BEFSR81 router. Both computers have static Ethernet addresses. I have a wireless router and both computers use their own wireless adapters for an internet connection. The wireless router (BEC 7800TN R2) is not physically connected to the eth router. The wireless adapters are set to use DHCP. IPv6 is disabled on the Ethernet adapters.

Here's my issue:

Streaming video or transferring files from the Win7 to my linux machine is very slow or fails unless i disable the wireless adapter on the Win7 laptop. However, if I change my wireless profile to public, which has sharing disabled, then no shares will show up in samba on the Linux 'puter, although I can ping the other computer by IP.

I have tried using lmhosts on both computers but to no avail. I can ping the Linux computer from my windows machine by IP, but if i try to ping from the NetBios name, it shows that its going through the router and will fail depending on whether the wireless profile is set to public or home.

How do I configure Windows so that the wireless is used for internet access only? Is this a router config issue? I'm racking my brain on this one.

EDIT: Even when file sharing/streaming is not working, Synergy still works fine and I can share the mouse/keyboard no problem.

I have installed the chipset drivers and the usb 3.0 controller driver. An intel wireless adapter driver, also the realtec ethernet driver.

I looked in the bios and didnt find any setting to change. At this point I think the motherboard is the issue but I am not sure. Is there anything else I should do to try to fix this computer?

Nothing in the compressed file please try this method

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

I'm pretty much a novice at doing this networking stuff, so I would be glad if I could get some help. I want to directly wire the router into my computer and bought a ethernet cable. I connected the cable to my router and computer and it doesn't work. Do I need a driver..I have reformatted my computer before and have installed the ethernet card again(or at least I think I did). Anybody have step by step information to get this to work? If so, please do tell. Thanks!
 

Answer:Help! How do you connect(with ethernet) a Wireless-B Broadband Adapter to a computer?

Please clarify. So you don't want to use the wireless feature of your router but rather use one on the wired ethernet ports on the router correct? So you've connected an Ethernet cable between one of your routers available ports and the Ethernet card installed in your PC correct?

Over course of 2-weeks, somehow my wireless connection stopped working. After POST and launch to desktop, the led on front the of laptop would change to blue, then WLAN notice would always pop-up in lower left coner of screen stating the the WLAN was connected.

I have no idea what I can do to get this back working. Laptop has built-in network adapter, and ethernet capabilities for both hard-wired and wireless. I use this laptop when the other PC is in-use. Having this option allows for multi-use of internet without having to waiting for the other PC to become free. At first I thought the drivers may have been outdated.

This is what I have done so far as I have run out of ideas as to how to resolve this issue.

I have read/searched through most of the posts on this and various other sites and can't seem to find help with my problem. So hopefully someone will be able to help.

This morning when I woke up my computer worked properly. I then went to work, and when I turned it on I got the "blue screen of death." (I apologize for not posting the exact wording, but I did not think I would need it). I restarted the computer per the instructions, and it booted up. The computer, however, failed to connect to the wireless network. I noticed that the network icon was not in the taskbar. I then went to device manager and my integrated wireless adapter (Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG) had a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark. I clicked on properties and under the 'general' tab the device status read:

This device cannot start (Code 10)
Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device

I then unistalled the controller and attempted to reinstall via the 'add hardware' program. I then received the message:

A problem occurred during hardware installation. Your device may not function properly

I then, believing it was a driver issue, downloaded the latest drivers from the intel website for my device on another computer. I uninstalled the controller again, and tried to install with the new drivers via a thumb drive. I received the same error message and the controller had the yellow triangle. When I clicked on properties this time I received the fol... Read more

Answer:Integrated Wireless Controller/PC Card Adapter/Ethernet port stopped working

Sounds like your motherboard is rapidly dying.

If the ethernet controller (or adapter) does not show under Network Adapters and is not in Other or Unknown devices with a warning or error message check in the BIOS (Setup) to see if it somehow got disabled. If it is already enabled, or doesn't show there, see my first paragraph.

When the ethernet controller is defective it can prevent other integrated and/or PCMCIA networking cards from working. When this happens sometimes a USB adapter will work.

So i was playing the game League of Legends, then at one point ping suddenly raised, checked my connection and it was on wireless, when i have my ethernet cable plugged in, at first i thought it was a cable problem or a modem, so i restarted my modem, but i used the same ethernet cable on a different laptop and it worked fine. Looked on the device manager to see what was up and the ethernet controller adapter wasn't there, only the wireless and Bluetooth was left. Looked for the newest realtek lan driver on the manufacturers website (lenovo) since i couldn't find one for windows 8.1, i downloaded the newest one from the windows 8 tab. Downloaded that, and when i tried to install it i get the error 'The realtek network controller was not found. If deep sleep mode is enabled please plug the cable. So after this i went into the BOIS to see if deep sleep was enable there and it wasn't, so for good measures i enabled it, restarted and disabled, restarted deep sleep.

Our internet service provider updated our internet speed from 100mbps to 1000mbps for no extra cost. We had a Netgear n150 wireless router but it wouldn't support the 1000mbps speed. We were told we needed to upgrade to a r6300 netgear router which is capable of 1000mbps. Now were are told we need to install an ethernet PCI network card or a network adapter. I am told we have to have a 2.0 port for the network adapter to work. It would be cheaper for us to install the internal Ethernet PCI Card, my problem is I don't know which one to buy. I know we need one that is rated 1000mbps, are these universal or will we have to buy one that fits each brand of computer?

Takenote that you can't just replace the card with the same model number without complying with the indicated fru number. Doing so, will result to a error message at startup. This restriction is popularly called as the whitelist. An alternative to the desired wireless communication between your TV and your unit is to have ChromeCast. You might want to explore this since this is easier compared to the replacement of the wifi card.

Hello, I would love to ask for some help!
I've recently purchased the newer Dell XPS 13 9360 Non-touch (not the 2 in 1) and am having some trouble with using an external monitor. The screen (on the external monitor) keeps on flickering and has a very unstable connection. 
I've searched and found that apparently lowering the power output of the WIFI network adapter can fix this problem. 
The problem is that the current XPS's wifi adapter doesn't allow the power output to be changed. The previous fixes were geared towards intel wifi adapters.
The general power settings for the computers doesn't show wifi card power controls.

I have updated all the drivers for the computer including the wireless adapter. Still the options doesn't change.

Has anyone found a way to get a stable external monitor to work with the Killer Wireless Adapter cards?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I would guess that the printer can be connected by ethernet and wireless, but I've never had one with both capabilities so I don't really know.

I once had a printer that worked OK connected to a network plus connected to another computer by USB. Even so, that may depend on the particular printer.

There may be two operating systems that cannot file share with each other but I don't know which ones that might be. Windows XP and 7 are fine sharing with each other (but not claiming that nobody has had any problems).

I have just had broadband installed but cannot connect to the web because I can't load the driver for my SIS 900 PCI fast ethernet adapter. It is on my ECS K7S5A Pro motherboard REV 5.0 but for some reason I cannot load the driver. It is very frustrating, any advise will be greatly appreciated. The only network driver that shows in device manager is the 1394 net adapter.

Hi, I'm trying to connect my printer to my home network, but the problem I've got is that the USB port on my printer is a USB type B port. I've been looking for an adapter with this type of connection but have not been able to find one? Does anyone know if it even exists?Oh, almost forgot my printer is a Brother 120c, not the best I know!Kevin.

Answer:USB 2.0 to Ethernet adapter

It appears that this is NOT a "network printer", it is a USB one, so you won't be able to connect it into your network by ethernet, even if you can get a USB-B/RJ45 adapter.Also, if you were to install a Network Print Server with a USB port, it might only support the printing function of the device, not scanning/copying.

Question: ethernet adapter

my desktop is hooked up to embarq dsl. It was working fine until a sudden storm Friday knocked out our power. Now in the device manager it says my "via II rhine ethernet adapter could not load" I can get on the internet on my laptop wirelessly. Is the adapter not loading something in my computer or the modem/router combo? the phone company came out and checked our lines and it's okay. I tried re- formatting my computer to see if a driver would load; but it says it can't start. Thanks

Question: Ethernet Adapter

Good Day,

My DSL service has been working wonderfully for 5 months. Had a problem with my computer and had to scan disk. Since this has been done, my winipcfg will not recognize the Realtek Ethernet Adapter. I removed it and reinstalled, etc. What have I done here. I can get connected to the DSL, however I have no access to E-Mail or Internet, from that computer.

Please Help! Thanks gf
 

Answer:Ethernet Adapter

Hi there

Here's something to try...

I'm assuming that in "winipcfg" the dropdown is not showing your NIC as an option.

right-click on Network Neighborhood-select properties
on the installed components list make sure that you have the following...

Client for Microsoft Winfows
Realtek ethernet adapter
TCP/IP

If you have any VPN adapters, remove them. also removew any AOL adapters and all protocols other than TCP/IP

reboot and check it out. If the NIC now shows in WinIpCFG, do a "Release ALL", then close out and power system completely off. Then cycle the power on the DSL Modem, wait for it to come completely back up, then reboot the PC
Good Luck!

Question: ethernet adapter?

Ok, I've been connecting to the internet via usb this entire time. I have the option of connecting via ethernet because I have the port but I dont know if I have an adapter. After being over my sisters house who has the same DSL I do but her connection is a bout 10 times faster than mine, I noticed she is connected through the ethernet.

I wanted to see if I could connect, Im not sure if I did it the right way or if I even have the right equipment because when I disconnected the usb and connected the ethernet, this required that I insert my DSL disk to "update" my connection preferences.I did so but it kept freezing and wouldnt allow me to access the option to change connections, after about the 7th attempt it finally told me that I dont have a ethernet adapter but in my attempts to make the connection first with the usb, I disabled the Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller (dont know what this is or if it has anything to do with the ethernet) so that might have a role to play in it maybe?

It was a really big hassle getting it back to usb because I couldnt get it to work the other way and then it just didnt want to work at all.

So my question is ~ Is there something I can use that will tell me if I have an adapter already? or is there a specific way to connect?

Any other info, I gladly provide. Thanks!

If yo do not have the Network adapter item there, means you do not have one, so buy and install one. Hope this helps.

Hello, this problem has really confuzzled me. I have just bought a new wireless USB adapter, ran it through the setup entered the password etc. Fine. Nicely connects to the router everytime (well ok most the time). But it cant seem to find the internet, which i know is there because my house mate has no problems with it. I've read quite a few complaints about this adapter. Is it worth just returning it and trying a different one? Or does anyone have any ideas?

It finds the submask, ip address, sets a channel automatically. One thing i noticed though is it doesnt create a gateway. (i asume cos i cant find the net). I did have internet before but they were wired. I've since then disabled the normal ethernet adapter and disabled the old connections. So i dont think theres anything conflicting.

Please help?!!
Thank you in advance i really appreciate it.
 

Answer:Belkin Wireless adapter - can connect to the adapter, but not the internet!!!

I'm going to guess that the IP address that it finds is 169.254.x.x and the subnet mask is 255.255.0.0, right? It's really NOT connecting to the router, which is why you don't have a Default Gateway or DNS servers.

You don't have to disable the wired interface to connect wirelessly, there's no conflict.

I'd suggest you first disable the encryption and see if it connects. If it does, then you need to make sure you enter matching passwords for the encryption on each end. Note that for WEP you should ONLY use the HEX password, do not use the passcode option.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

The name of your ISP and country of residence.
Make/model of the broadband modem. If dial-up, please specify.
Make/model of the router (if any).
Connection type, wired, wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc.)
Make/model of network card or wireless adapter.
Make/model of your computer (motherboard if home-built).
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP2.

Hi,

thanks for looking in and trying to help. I have a laptop with Windows 7 on it, and as usual today the laptop's screen frame also accomodates the internal Wireless Internet antenna. I am able to use the existing networks when they are close enough to me.

But I wanted to have a better reception, so I bought one of those USB-based Wireless Internet Adapters (WIA) which have mounted a little 5 dBi antenna (dBi = Decibel) on its side. I bought recently a much larger 22 dBi antenna, which I can use to replace the smaller antenna on that WIA. Windows also recognized the USB device correctly (please see the screenshot link: http://www.NADB.net/v/Prom/WLAN.jpg), but the connection tool at the lower right side of Windows (system tray area) displays only those networks which the internal screen frame antenna captures.

I tried already to disable the internal antenna, but then I don't get any network. Why can't the Network Connection icon not show networks the USB WIA might capture? What is it I am doing wrong?

Please don't mind to ask me for additional details here, I will provide them as additional details.

Just so we're on the same page regarding terminology: I call a wifi Access Point the base where several wifi *clients* can connect simultaneously and I call "clients" those which are connected to an AP.

Many people call a wifi to ethernet adapter device a "bridge" but this is confusing (and, IMHO, wrong) because many or most units sold as "bridge" will connect to a similar unit and form a wifi "bridge" (similar to a powerline bridge) but they cannot connect to an AP as a client. In fact I have a Linksys WAP 54g which is primarily an AP but can function as a "bridge" when working with a similar unit but it cannot connect to an AP as a client. People get quite confused by this and sellers on ebay seem specially prone to this confusion. I have also heard them called "game adapter".

External wifi client adapters are most commonly USB but I have more use and need for wifi to ethernet adapters. These are more rare and more expensive and for some unknown reason the ones I have used tend to not last too long. Today another one gave up its soul and I need to replace it. (It seems the wifi part is ok but the ethernet side is dead.)

I happen to have a bunch of ADSl modem - router - wifi AP units for which I do not have much use and I was thinking that it would be neat if I could use them as wifi clients instead of wifi APs. I suppose this could be done by replacing the internal firmware and it is probably ... Read more

First time posting so I apologize if anything is missing and whatnot.

Down to the problem, I'm having some difficulties with an Ethernet port on my laptop that won't hold a connection to my router for more than 2 seconds. I have pinged loopback (127.0.0.1) and my laptop's own static IP (192.168.0.9) both of which were fine, however once I tried pinging my laptop from another computer it would time out. Changing the speed and duplex caused it to stay connected however it would bring back "Unidentified Network". I have tried a fair bit of troubleshooting of my own, googling a lot and to no avail.

My adapter is a Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller with IPv6 disabled (intentionally) and the Router I'm attempting to connect to is a Sky Branded router. The ethernet cable I'm using has no problems connecting to my xbox360, however we use Wireless for that, and it has no problem connecting to the other PC, it just will not hold a connection between my laptop and the router.

Statistics of my adapter's driver are as follows:

Driver Provider: Microsoft
Driver Date: 13/10/2008
Driver Version: 4.60.0.1
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows

Windows update insists I have the best driver installed.

If anyone has a solution to my problem, please help me out.

I have some problems with which I hope the Forum will be able to help me. 1. Since my notebook does not have an Ethernet port, I established the Internet connection using the cable coming from the router using fast Ethernet Adapter. My Internet Provider recommended I use a wireless Adapter, but since my Broadband connection is through a landline, in an electronics shop they recommended that instead I use the Adapter. The transfer speed is very slow, and when I double click Local Area Connection 2, it shows a speed 100.0 Mbps (does b stand for bit?), but I think the speed should be 7 MBps.2. When my Fujitsu Siemens notebook feels rather hot which happens when I use it for a long time, and kind of a humming noise is heard coming from it. onkeljoe

Answer:ethernet adapter and broadband

When you double click the Local Area Connection, the speed shown is the speed at which the port is connecting, i.e. the PC and router are connected at 100Mbps (Megabits per second), it is *NOT* an indication of your broadband speed. Go to a site such as Speedtest.net click here to check what your broadband speed is.

When I plugged it into my usb, there was smoke, I'm pretty sure from the USB not the adapter, this is the type of usb that connects via jumper to the motherboard, and now my printer does not work which is also connected to the USB. So I'm pretty sure I fried the USB.

MY questions are,
Did I hurt the motherboard or is there some protection in the usb?
I only had 2 slots, so I would like a better usb, I do have open slots to install other type (whatever you call the slot), my next question, is what type usb would be better, the one that attaches via jumper to the mother board or what?

I need to call sprint and tell them what happened, any suggestions, did their adapter possibly do this? should I ask them to pay for a new usb? free one month service? or what. Can I test this usb adapter or should I heve them send me a new one?

Or should I go with a NIC card?

I have recently installed an old WinXP desktop PC to my workshop. It lay in the loft the last few years packed and unused. I have it all working now updated to XP SP3 final updates and it is at present connecting to the internet through a long Cat5E cable from my Virgin superhub 2 modem. The XP PC connects via a VIA VT-6102 Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter on the motherboard. My question is, can someone with more technical knowledge tell me if this adapter is wireless capable and if so what do I need to get it connected wirelessly to the Virgin Superhub wi-fi?.

Answer:Ethernet Adapter Question?.

The VIA Rhine product family comprises 10/100Mbps Ethernet Network Interface Card(NIC). Purchase wireless USB adapter to connect to wireless router.

I have been having problems with my computer randomly dropping my internet connection. Usually my ping spikes real high, Skype disconnects me, the game I'm playing disconnects me. I had this problem before upgrading to windows 10 and don't know if its my killer e2200 that came integrated with my motherboard. The driver is updated and I thought I might as well start here before trying to replace modem or router. I also want to add that I have a brand new Cat 6 cable Ethernet cable.

The only problem is trying to find a PCI Ethernet network adapter that is compatible with windows 10. I would really like to avoid using a USB 3.0 and prefer to use a PCI slot. Of course it doesn't need to say "good for gaming" as I think any generic 10/100/1000 Ethernet adapter will do. The problem is finding one that works with Windows 10. Thanks.

And if anyone want to try and solve my network problem your welcome to. I notice it only when I'm playing a game and talking to friends on Skype. I might also be listening to music with a mixture of downloaded and streaming from Spotify. When I'm playing a game and talking I will notice that the persons voice is getting broken up and my game starts to lag, ping spikes way passed 1000. When this happens Skype says I'm offline and I'm trying to reconnect. The problem I'm facing leads me to believe it could be my router thinking that I'm taking to much bandwidth or something. I have a Linksys EA4500, and I have my computer under Media Prioritiz... Read more

Answer:Need a PCI Ethernet Network Adapter

Changing the adapter isnot going to resolve an issue on the ISP side.

Hey everyone,

I haven't posted on here in years, but could use some help now with the system that this board helped me build.

It's an ECS K7S5A AMD Athlon 1.14 ghz processor, I had 512mb of RAM
OS= XP Pro 2002 SP 3.

I had this unit in storage for about 18 months and just began using it again about 5 months ago. Before I stored it, I had installed a larger seagate HD which subsequently failed. I had to reload windows, and ever since then, my performance has been quite slowed, and I get these very short intermittent hangs when typing, searching pages, or watching youtube videos...pretty much everything. I figured it was a memory issue and bought a 1gb stick of RAM, now giving me 1.5gb. I just read maybe 5 minutes ago that the board capacity was 1gb. That change really didn't speed a whole lot up, but it did make some difference, though not enough to prevent the little 'hiccups'.

I also have an issue where windows cannot find the drivers for the SM Bus or Ethernet adapter. I tried both the XP setup disc that I have as well as the disc that came with the mobo, to no avail.

I dowloaded the AMD driver update package and it said it couldn't find any AMD products! My system screen says the update package lies! (well not literally, but the two certainly aren't agreeing at the moment, as it clearly says AMD Athlon under the "Computer:" section of the general tab.

Could the two issues be related? I have nothing else showing up yellow in my device m... Read more

Answer:XP can't find SM Bus Or Ethernet Adapter

Take off the side of the case and reaffirm the make and model # of the MOBO. Download the drivers from http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Pro...nuID=1&LanID=9

Can you tell me just what the SIS 900 Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter does and is it onboard the mobo or is it like a card setup idea? When would you have it disabled or enabled? If it was disabled would it make a difference when trying to connect to the internet using dial up connection?

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 using Windows Vista that I bought in July 2007. I have been trying to make it work faster. I recently added 2 gig of memory giving it 4 gig total. I am using IE 9.

My current problem is the internet just isn?t working right. It is slow, choppy at times or doesn?t load all items on a page. If it doesn?t load a page sometimes I click on the stop X, followed by refresh and the page pops right up. Sometimes if I don?t get a complete page a refresh will fix it. It is just a pain to work with.

There is an icon which I think is called Network Connectivity in the right corner of the task bar. It is two small blue screens. It keeps changing from a red x, an exclamation point, and three blue balls or nothing. If I rest on the icon it flashes the status of the network:
Red X ? You are not currently connected to any networks
Blue Balls ? Access: Local and Internet
Exclamation Point ? Limited Connectivity
Just two screens ? Access: Local Only

I called my internet provider. They said to call Dell to get help uninstalling my Ethernet Adatper. I called Dell but since it was out of warranty and I chose to try it myself. I uninstalled the Intel 82562V-2 10/100 Network Connection in my devices. I scanned for hardware changes and it reinstalled it. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver but there was no change.

Hi folks

I am interested in playing some of my ps2 games online, more specifically pro evolution 5.
At the moment my setup is i have a switch connected to my blueyonder cable modem 1mbps. is it simple case of me buying this network adapter that i attach to my ps2 and run a cat5 cable to my ps2 to switch and bobs your uncle

Do i need to pay extra fees to blueyonder to receive this service. thanks.

I have looked on the blueyonder website and cannot find anything to do with console gaming which proved useful.

Also does anyone know any uk sites where i can pick up a cheap network apater for ps2.

thanks again
 

Answer:ethernet adapter ps2 question

is very simple to hook ps2 online, just buy network adapter and hook the cat5 cable from network adapter to router or directly to modem. No need to configure nothing. Only thing you will be ask by ps2 is to make a connection profile which is self explainatory and easy to do.

No need for extra free or nothing.

And I searched the whole Internet, nobody is selling that kind of adapter(tons of USB to RJ45 instead).I checked the online shop of Lenovo, they only have USB to RJ45.Thank you for your help.

Hi,
I'm running win xp pro and have lately started to have problems with my ether card. My problem is every time my computer reboots for what ever reason, the driver for the card won't load on it's own. I have to go through device manager and reinstall the driver manually. I've removed the card and started fresh, Xp sees the card and installes the driver and everythings good until a reboot. Again I have to go manual...can eneyone help?
Thanks for your time, Don
 

Answer:Ethernet adapter card

Do you have another resource for the driver such as mfg. web site, CD or floppy? I imagine you can't roll back the driver, and troubleshooter got you nowhere. Weird one though. I recently got an update from Windows Update for a Samsung LCD monitor I have been using for a while that wouldn't operate properly with 512 of RAM installed, some dll or executable getting caught in a loop as I recall, and then the big Freeze. I even wrote Intel about it as it was their graphics controller software causing the problem. Always seems to be some compatibility issue.

I'm doing this for a friend as he can't get online, he has a dell dimention 2300, winxp, he reinstalled winxp with the dell cd, everything went ok but when he tried to go online winxp can't recognize his usb ethernet network adapter, in device manager he has a question mark for serial bus controller (usb) and 10/100 lan, he said he installed all the drivers that where on the dell resource cd, in the right order

Answer:XP won't recognize usb ethernet adapter

Was the adapter an optional component or something he added later? If the former, you could find drivers on the Dell site, if the latter, check if it came with a drivers CD, or if it the manufacturer's web site has drivers for it.
Also check out the unknown device identifier
http://www.zhangduo.com/udi.html
I don't know how good it is, but it's worth giving it a try.
If you know you have the right drivers for the right, but it still won't get detected in device manager, there's always a chance of the device being faulty or broken.

Hi,I have bought my Y580 probably around 2 months ago and I am facing a serious issue. My university only offers internet with the RJ45 cable and it seems that the ethernet adapter of my laptop isn't working properly. One out of 10 times the adapter starts working, but after a short period of time it stops again and whenever I restart my computer again the adapter just lights up. * I will add pictures later* I've tried everything - > Preinstalled my windows, original drivers on the CD, drivers from the internet, Linux ... but still the issue remains unresolved. Has anyone else had this problem? Also I forgot to mention that the adpter does that during the POST test, which usually happens before the BIOS even starts...Need to know if it's a hardware problem like I suspect or I can actually do something about it. Thanks in advance!Andrew

Answer:Y580 Ethernet Adapter

Andrew,Try doing a BIOS update then load BIOS default and see if that helps. If problem persist then contact Lenovo support.Thanks

I recently had to reformat my PC because I was getting a blue screen which said windows would not start properly, I tried repairing my windows but that did not work either. I use Verizon DSL and I've never had an issue installing it when I first got it. I can't get online unless I have the software of verizon's installed, but I can't install the software because when I go to "Install my Modem" it can not connect to my Ethernet Adapter. It says that I do not have an "Ethernet Adapter". I'm not positive, but I think an Ethernet Adapter is the same as an Ethernet card, please tell me if I'm wrong.

I'm assuming when I had to improperly shut my computer down I may have fried something (such as my ethernet card ) and that I need to purchase a new one. I've gone through all of the troubleshooting issues and none of them resolved my problem. I don't feel like calling on July 4th because I have family over, and I figured I'd get better help here anyway.

I'm an avid gamer, and a decent Ethernet Card would be nice (If that's even my problem!?)

1) Do you think it's my card?
2) If I get a new card, what kind of card should I get?

Thanks to everyone in advance, your help is greatly appreciated.
