R40 Wireless but no wired ethernet.

Question: R40 Wireless but no wired ethernet.

I'm stumped. My R40 Thinkpad wireless works fine but my wired controller in back keeps saying "network cable unplugged." All drivers re-installed, no yellow marks in device manager, TCP set to "obtain automatically," no viruses or spyware detected. Tried two cables, same result. Tried installing from Intel and Lenovo drivers, no luck. What did I miss? Thanks.

I bought a new TV stand and was messing around with placement of my cable modem/router and 2-way/3-way splitters. The 2-way splitter gives me better numbers as shown in my modems config page.

While I had everything apart I wanted to see the speed difference between wired/wireless.

Wireless = 40 down/20 up
Wired = 189 down/ 23 up

Answer:This big of an increase from wireless to wired ethernet?

That's fast! Nothing to complain about there.

Answer:Wireless connection is ok ... but not the wired one (ethernet)

Welcome to the forum! Downloading the driver is just the first part of the process. You must go into C>Drivers>Win subfolder, find your driver (it's probably going to be labelled Broadcom or Ethernet) and run the setup file from there. Good luck and keep us posted.

I've always had a wired router but recently bought a wireless one so I could play BBC iPlayer through my TV.
It is usually fine but sometimes gets extremely slow both for sending and receiving emails and for connecting to websites. So I have today tried going back to my wired router and it is much quicker. Is this a coincidence or a known fact? I live in a very rural area.

Answer:Ethernet wired v wireless internet connection

There might be interference sometimes on the signal the router is sending. Have you tried changing the channel the router is broadcasting on?

I'm quite knowledgeable in computers, but lack in the area of networking. My friend has a job where he's on the road a lot and wants to take his xbox on the road with him. The only thing is that the wireless networks that the hotels have use the terms of agreement page and so forth. I'm sure they also monitor it with Mac addresses and so forth. He has a wireless adaptor for the xbox and takes his laptop along. He has tried bridging the 2 interfaces together, which ends up breaking the wireless connection. He has also tried to use the xbox with the wireless adaptor and that also doesn't work, I imagine because of the terms of agreement. As far as he told me he also tried to use the wireless adaptor for the xbox on the computer first and then agree'd to the terms and then moved it to the xbox and it still didn't work.

Any ideas?

My method of communicating with the internet is via a wireless connection to a wireless router, etc.

When I connect a debug tool via the wired ethernet connection I lose the my internet connection.

I then have to diagnose the connection where a dialog box pops up to show which connection type, wired, or wireless. I have to select wireless and go from there.

Is there a way to override windows XP to only search for an internet connection via wireless? It is quite a nuiasance to have to go through the reconnect process once I plug the debug tool in...
 

Answer:When I connect Wired ethernet device I lose wireless internet access

No. The reverse would be true, and depending on the quality of your equipment and connections you could, but the normal case is what you are experiencing. Anyway to go wired first, then wireless?

Hello,My name is Vladan and I have had a problem occur yesterday. My internet stopped working.I immediately tried my phone's wireless connection and saw that it was working fine, so I tried laptop wireless and it too was working. When I plug in my network cable it stops working.My ethernet internet connection status shows that Ipv4 and Ipv6 have "no internet accsess". It's not just my laptop's wired internet that stopped working, it's the whole network I have in my apartment consisting of two more computers who also lost their wired-ethernet internet accsess. I suspect something is wrong with my router since it relays my internet but wireless works fine so I'm stumped. When I plug in my cable it shows limited connectivity.I have tried ipconfig /release - /renew, I have tried netsh winsock reset and netsh int ip reset log.txt I have tried (netsh winsock reset catalog), also I tried (netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log) and it said the following ::::::Resetting Interface, OK!Resetting Neighbor, OK!Resetting Path, OK!Resetting , failed.Accsess is denied.Resetting, OK!Restart the computer to complete this action.::::I don't know what is this "failed and accsess is denied" but it might be the problem.I have rebooted my router several times but also with no results.

Answer:Network troubleshoot - Ethernet (wired) stopped working, Wireless works fine.

Did your ISP give you this router such as your leasing it etc? If so contact them for a replacement.If you own this router then I'd try factory reset button to set it back to factory default. If that doesn't cure this then buy a new router. They are pretty cheap these days.Your router could have been hacked, the access denied is strange!

I've got a regular desktop pc and a laptop. Both are running Windows 7.

If both machines are wired, file and printer sharing works like expected. If the laptop is on the wireless, things go sour...

The machines don't see each other, I can't ping the laptop from the desktop or vice versa. Strangely enough, if I ping the desktop from the laptop by IP address the desktop will reply. At that point the desktop will see the laptop too and sharing (file, printer & media) works fine. But if the connection is idle for a couple of minutes they won't see each other anymore.

I've tried all kinds of things: disabled IPv6 on both, reconfigured file and printer sharing, disabled the firewalls on both. But none of these changes have had any effect whatsoever. I have also tried to give everything the same name (SSID, workgroup and network name on the desktop) but that had no effect either.

More info:
- Wired and wireless clients are on the same subnet.
- The router is a Linksys WRT-350N
- AP isolation is disabled
- uPnP is enabled on the router

Does anyone have any clue how to fix this?

1 PC connected wirelessly via a wireless card and via RJ-45 to a Linksys wireless router. And either:

i) from the wireless router to the wireless printer
ii) or from the PC's wireless card to the wireless printer

everything is working. But I want to "change the order of network protocol binding" as below. To make sure the PC is connected to the network via the RJ-45, NOT by wireless:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Change-the-order-of-network-protocol-bindings

If I do this, can the PC still talk to the wireless printer? And if not, how would you connect to the network wired, but to the printer wirelessly?
 

Answer:For PC w/ wired & wireless, can it connect wired to internet but wireless to printer

If the wireless printer is connected to the router via wireless, all wired devices can print to it.

Hi guys hows it goin?

Ok just a little background of what happened...

Was at home saturday night (weather was pretty bad, big storm) playing Guild Wars and all of a sudden blackout occured. After 5 minutes had power again so I decided to switch my pc back on however this time it wont connect to the internet. I tried troubleshooting it and its telling me "Ethernet cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken" i checked if its plugged in and even use a 2 other Ethernet cables I had but still giving me the same message. I even went to device manager to check if the network card is enabled and still it wont let me connect. So I am hoping if any you guys can help me out here?

I am using Acer Aspire m3400
current OS is Windows Vista

Also I am very clueless when it comes to computer.
 

Answer:Wired Ethernet Problem! Help please...

Likely the cable or NIC was damaged. And you've already tested one of those by trying other cables. You can make an extra check by making sure that the same router LAN port and cable work with another computer.

Recently the power went out in my house. Ever since the power has come back on, I haven't been able to use my wired internet connection. When I look at my devices, my Intel 82566 Gigabit Network Connection has the status "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device." I've tried re-installing and updating the driver, but I can't tell whether I've done this successfully. In any event, it still doesn't work.

I have a Dell XPS 410. Let me know if you need any other information. Thanks for reading.

Answer:Cannot Use Wired Ethernet Connection

Hello -It seems by your post that you still have wireless connection.The Ethernet cable may have been "cooked" with the blackout situation, and maybe a surge afterwardsHave you used another cable yet to check this idea out yet ?? See if that improves things.The other option is that maybe your Ethernet cable connectors were burned at some stage in the black outThanks -

Verizon DSL Modem bridged to Cisco wrt57g router (which handles the wireless) and then a 8 port switch which all but the laptop is plugged into. wired machines can see and interact with laptop, laptop can see wired machines but can not log in to any across network. (network not found)

the wireless shows the name of the network, wired does not.

also, is there just anyway to reset network settings to start fresh? I don't even want to get into this homegroup thing (which I seem to have 4 of and they all have the same name, what ever happened to workgroups you could name?)

Answer:wireless won't see wired. wired sees wireless

Welcome to the forum Avix.

To get out of those Homegroups just leave them all by following this guide. Homegroup network only works with Windows 7 machines.
Homegroup - Leave

If you have other Op systems in your network you have to use either the Work or Public file sharing options. If you need to reset you can either use ipconfig commands or just reset the router and modem then follow the set up procedure for your router.
ipconfig - Windows Command Line Utility

Network Location - Set as Home, Work, or Public Network

However, when I try to 'Test' the Xbox connection to the computer/network, it always fails confirming that it cannot get an IP address.I'm running 32-bit Vista Ultimate and ICS is set to allow sharing.

I am using win xp, I bought a wired network card at walmart, model NC100I-WM, it says it works with win 95,98,2000,ME, and Xp. I took out my dial up modem and attempted to install this new card and it would not fit. I put my dial up modem back in with no difficulty. Is there some reason this card will not fit in my pc? Do I have the wrong card? The phone company told me that the one they recommend is about $30 at Office Depot, this one at walmart was about half the price.
 

Answer:installing wired ethernet card

First of all, how old is the computer (make and model please), and are you attempting to install it into a white PCI slot?

Most NIC cards are roughly $19.99 these days. And from the model number you provided, I would assume that this particular one was packaged especially for WalMart (not that it matters). If your modem card is in a white jack that's roughly 6 inches long, then the NIC card you're attempting to install should be able to replace it. It just might take a bit of force - they are sometime very balky at inserting, seeing that not all circuit boards (that green board that these things are made from) are the same thickness. Just make sure that the metal tab that faces the back of the machine is down in its slot (otherwise the card will not seat flush with the outside of the box) and that you are matching the tab slot in the socket before you press firmly with your thumbs on the card's edge (hence the reason it's so much easier to install these beasties while the computer is lying on it's side).

I will also assume that this computer does not already have a RJ-45 jack for networking up in the cluster of other jacks? Most newer machines have it in with the USB jacks.

X220, about a year old. Worked perfectly then suddenly it would lose ethernet connection. The adapter would just shut off like it wasn't even there. Went through updating everything, bios, etc. and still isn't consistent. Will stay for 5 minutes or so and then die, or just die right away. So I put this back to completely stock from the factory and did all Windows and Lenovo updates. Still have this problem. Is there a fix? Can I replace this card? It says "Device cannot start. (Code 10)" in Device manager, and says I have the most current drivers.

You probably know that this is *usually* a driver problem. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943104 I would try booting to safe mode (F8 at boot) and uninstalling the device and all drivers from device mgr. Then reboot into normal mode and see if it re-discovers the device.

Hi all,

I have a question. I was wondering why sometimes file transfers inside my internal network are much slower than usual. Here is my setup. All computers have a 10/100 NIC. I have one main router (4 ports 10/100). My computer is connected directly to that router. Then, from another port on the router, i have a 10/100 full-duplex switch connected. From that switch, I have 3 other computers connected. All cabling is CAT5e. Normal transfers between computer are usually around 7-9 MB/s, which is about 80% of 100 Mbit (which is good). But for some reason, at another time, I try to transfer between the same two computers, and I get like 1 MB/s (not very good). Maybe a couple days later, nothing has changed settings wise, but all of a sudden I get the good 7-9 rate. I just don't get it. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

...basically not working.I have Virgin media broadband, connected via USB to my PC. An ethernet cable is running from my PC to my Xbox. I bought a crossover type cable today as I tried the connection last night with a straight through ethernet cable hwich wasn't working but the problem has not been sorted.I have religiously followed the Xbox guides, trying to connect via the xbox and also from the PC via Windows Media Centre but both fail. Xbox complains about IP address and computer just says it can't connect although it does bring up a 'click here' bubble to install a 'Media Extender'. I'm running Vista Ultimate.I've tried static IP addresses, automatic and nothing works. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey all I am having trouble with a wired ethernet connection in Windows 7. My motherboard is a Gigabyte X58A-UD3R and I have tried both the drivers included on the CD and the latest LAN drivers from the gigabyte website.

I have read a good amount of posts on typical issues people are facing and have used the command prompt to reset winsock, reset the interface, both ipv4 and ipv6. The realtek network adapter appears in the device manager with no issues, I have installed the drivers through the CD and also through device manager. I have tested the wire (works on my laptop). I went into my router and it has a record of the MAC address of the ethernet adapter (I found the mac address in bios and it matched). The router had also assigned an IP address to this MAC address so I set this IP address as dmz host but still nothing is working.

Are there any other tricks or tips that you guys advise? This is a brand new build with new motherboard and I know for a fact that the ethernet adapter on the motherboard is not broken because I tested it with another operating system (mac osx). I appreciate any input. Thank you!

I have an HP computer, with Windows 7 64-bit, about 4 days ago, my desktop's internet connection will continually drop out and come in ever 30 seconds or less. I have tried to reset my router and modem and it did not help. I have ran norton constantly and ran malawarbyte twice with full scan. My connection allows me to get online, but with the connection constantly dropping, i cant watch any videos because the connection will cut out and when online internet explorer will come up saying cannot display web page. Ive tried google chrome and media firefox and both have the same problem so i know its my connection and can see it dropping at the bottom right of my screen. My router is NVIDIA nForce 10/100 Mbps Ethernet. When i booted my computer up in safe mode and networking my connection was completely stable and worked great. Does anyone have any idea whats happening?

Answer:Wired Ethernet connection constantly dropping

Hello,

If it works well in Safe Mode with Networking perhaps your Norton might be the culprit. You may uninstall Norton completely for now by using the Removal Tool. If this resolves your issue you may reinstall Norton back or perhaps try MSE, it's a great Anti-Spyware/Anti-Spyware software.

In my house almost every wall outlet has a cat5e port which are almost all currently connected to a phone line. After looking through the wire box where home wiring is set up, it seems, at least to me, possible to fix it so that some of the cat5e ports in the house will deliver network access through a router than a phone. I have some ideas of how to do this, but since the cat5 cables are not crimped at the ends, I have fear that all the cutting, crimping, and rewiring would be done for nothing if I do it wrong (and I'm not even 100% sure my house is even set up for this)

I took some pretty detailed pictures of the inside of the wire box where everything is conncted. Everything seems to be connected to two phone hubs that are patched together. I think the top box is for the upstairs, and the bottom is for the downstairs.

I know the "home run" cable is of importance from some researching I did earlier, and I found that the home run cable is the one plugged into the top hub on the very left (and you can see the writing on some of the pictures)

Picture 1
Picture 2
Picture 3
Picture 4

What I thought was the way to do this was to cut the home run line, crimp the cut end of the part going into the hub, and plug that into a router/switch and then remove and crimp the remaining lines in the hub corresponding to the rooms that I want to have internet access and plug them into the router/switch.

Answer:Trying to use pre-wired house ethernet for home internet

You would be best off getting a 12 port 110 wall mount patch panel and a 110 punch down tool and re-terminating the cables you want there. Then on the other end get some keystone 110-style cat5e jacks and keystone wall-plates and terminate them. It is very easy to do if you get some quality parts. I'd recommend checking out what Leviton has to offer. They make some pretty decent equipment. In fact they are the only brand of jacks & patch panels that we use at work.

I live in a newly constructed home that was wired with ethernet cables throughout. The current internet setup is: ISP modem to wireless router (ASUS RT-AC68U) with ethernet cables running from the router to a "board" (I'm not sure what it is properly called) that connects to 8 ethernet cables that run throughout the house to various rooms. Most of our device run on WIFI (which works perfectly fine), so there are only a couple connections from the router to the board. Recently, I wanted to hook up a desktop computer (which doesn't have WIFI) via ethernet in one of the rooms, but ran into problems. I will try to describe the scenario as best and clearly as I can:

I will call the room that is having problems "Room A". I have been trying to connect using two computers. One is the above-mentioned desktop ("Desktop") and the other is a laptop ("Laptop") that I've used for diagnostic purposes. The Desktop runs Windows 7 Pro and the Laptop Windows 7 Ultimate.

In Room A, I connect the Desktop to the wall ethernet connection, which is wired through the house as described above (so I use two movable ethernet cables in total: one from router to board, one from wall socket to computer). The desktop does not get an internet connection, instead it has the yellow exclamation marker over the icon. If I then try the Laptop in Room A with the same cable setup, I connect to the internet just fine (I am not using wifi for these tests). So something s... Read more

Answer:Trouble with house-wired ethernet in some rooms, but not others

Nevermind, I figured out the solution:

I opened up the wall plate to inspect the ethernet cable. At the RJ45 jack I noticed that one cable, the white/green one, was not pushed all the way to the bottom, but kind of half way. So I pushed it down all the way, and voila there is an internet connection to the Desktop!

Kind of weird considering that the Laptop could still connect.

Hi

I have an intermittent issue with the wired ethernet connection on my desktop to internet becoming "disconnected" from my cable modem & router, i.e it drops the connection.

For a long time I thought it was a fault with the modem but have now established that a wireless connection from a laptop to wireless router connects quite happily to the internet at the same time that the wired connection from the router to the desktop is showing up as "Network cable unplugged" on the desktop.

I have tried taking the wireless router out of the equation ie desktop plugged directly into the modem ethernet port, but this reproduces the "Network cable unplugged" icon on the task bar at some stage.

I have tried switching to several different ethernet cables without solving the fault so doubt the problem lies there.

The desktop uses a generic Marvell Yukon chipset based ethernet controller, on an XP system. The current cure is to turn off the desktop, turn the modem off for 20 seconds then re-boot.

Any advice would be gratefully appreciated

Cheers

Welcome silverflurri:

One thing that could be the problem is that when you reset the cmos, did you check the peripherals to see if the internal ethernet port is activated?? some can be turned off and that could be the default, although it would be wierd to do that. Just a thought.

 I did a clean install of Windows 7 Pro on a W541, and to make life easy I used DoubleDrive software (http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/double_driver.html) to capture all of the device drivers prior to the clean install. That included the Ethernet driver, Ethernet Connection I217-LM. Since then, I can't get the unit to recognize a wired ethernet connection, whether in the Ultra Dock or directly connected to the unit. I've tried more than one live connection that I know work. The Device Manager shows that it's working properly, I asked it to find a newer driver and it says I've got the latest driver. I then used the Lenovo System Update utility, which didn't find any new drivers. I downloaded and installed Access Connections, and on the surface it didn't recognize the presence of a wired connection, since it always connected wireless AND didn't display a wired option in the "Connect to the Internet" map. ANSWER Fortunately, I found this post by Mark_Lenovo from 2011.

Hi. From the time I got my V570 a few weeks ago I've been connecting only via the wireless connection. Today I decided to plug in the Ethernet Cat5 cable to get faster file transfer rates. The problem is this: I can't get the wired connection to work. I've tried 3 different cables (all of which work fine with another laptop I have, also a V570) and none of them work with the new V570. I've tried trouble shooting the connection problem and it says there is something wrong with the cable. Since I know that nothing is wrong with the cable, what else could it be? Properties on the Realtec PCI GBE Family Controller say the device is working properly, but shows a message: "network cable unplugged", even though a cable IS plugged in. I'm not seeing any red flags in Device Manager. I've never had this problem before. It's not the router; and it's not the cable. And I have no trouble connecting with the wireless connection, which most people who have connection problems do have. I'm at a total loss here. Is there some function key/"switch" that might have been accidentally turned off that controls the wired Ethernet port on the V570? (I know there's a physical switch on the front of the V570 that swithces Bluetooth on/off, but that has no bearing on the Ethernet port.)

sounds like you need wireless home plugs.
You connect one to the router downstairs and put the other (or more if you want them) upstairs. The signal from the router is passed through the house electrical ring main. and broadcast out the other(s).

Peer-to-peer networks can be difficult, as you're asking one PC to do a lot of what a router or dedicated server does. I have found that the IP problem can often be fixed with manual assignment of IPs on both host and client.

Hi, i have searched around but have not seen this setup explained and have been buggering about to no avail for too long.

I am looking to connect my Xbox 360 to my Internet connection (and PC for media) via the ethernet cable.

I am connected to a 3com Router (downstairs) via a Wireless adapter.

I have tried bridging my wireless connection and the wired (ethernet) connection but this just means nothing works. The Xbox finds the network like this, but does not get assigned an IP. assuming this is because it is the same IP that my PC is assigned?

I have just a normal patch rj45 ethernet cable, and have heard people that have used a crossover cable with success?

Hello there,

I was on my computer during a storm and after some lightning struck near my house, my monitor flicked off and on again and I lost my wired connection to the internet. The computer icon in the bottom right of my screen usually showing my connection to the network had changed to a red cross, which usually means the network isn't connected.

I thought this was strange, so I decided to restart my router. After doing so, the computer icon had changed from a red cross into a yellow exclamation mark. However, the wired LAN connection still didn't work and told me my wired connection was on an "unidentified network".

I read into this only and read that I should try to turn my computer's power off completely and leave it for a few hours. I decided to do this and unplugged my computer from the mains for a few hours. I returned to my computer a few hours later and turned it back on, only to discover that the computer icon now had turned back to a red cross, and my computer was not even detecting that the wired cable was in the LAN port. In the Device Manager, under Network adapaters, the wired LAN driver is not appearing. The light on the LAN port is orange when the wire is not plugged into it, and turns a bit green when the wire is in.

I used my xbox 360 to test if it was the wire that was broken, and the wire connected my router to my xbox just fine. I downloaded an update on my xbox to confirm the internet worked through the wired connecti... Read more

Hello,

I browsed the similar inquiries and solutions that concern this issue but I was unable to come to any resolution thus far.

Simply, my problem is that my computer no longer recognizes when an ethernet cable is attached to my computer. At my school there is a wireless network and a wired network and for the past year I've used the wired network because it is so much faster. Unfortunately, a few weeks ago, my computer stopped connecting to the wired network and I've noticed that it no longer even recognizes the plugged in cable. The lights do not power up on the side and under network properties the LAN network announces that there is a cable unplugged...

Like I said, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the device driver in the manage devices window but this was unsuccessful in solving the issue. I'd appreciate any help or insight on this problem.

Thank you.

A few months ago I needed to connect with an ethernet cable (I usually use wireless) and I couldn't. I looked in Network & Sharing, there wasn't a "Local Area Connection" listed (just "Wireless" and "Bluetooth") and the same thing in Device Manager. I tried to find LAN & Chipset drivers on HP's site, but was unsuccessful. I upgraded to Win7 Home Premium (x64) hoping that they'd be there with the new OS, but it's the same thing, only Wireless and no Ethernet.  I'm not even sure what kind of LAN/Ethernet (adapter/controller?)

I'm getting really frustrated with the Lenovo network management system. It seems overly complex and way too slow. In addition, on my home network, the wireless connection always seems to be favoured. When I plug in my ethernet connection, the system sees it as an unknown connection and promptly drops Internet access (although I can still see my local network). Even if I do manage to fiddle it into working, as soon as I reboot the Internet connection fails again. Doing a network repair does not work. Often, the only way to get Internet access is to unplug the ethernet cable. I've fiddled around with this for hours. I've played with all of the options, as well as 'include ethernet connection in location change' but to no avail. I just can't get the ethernet connection to work consistently. This should be dead simple (and is on all my other computers). You just plug the cable in and it works. I'm open to suggestions....

My Cox cable modem still has internet going on just fine and im forced to reset my modem to just get internet back. Everytime i try to diagnose the networking issue it explains that my ethernet is the problem.

I have had my computer for 3 years and it has worked great, i got a new router bout 4 months ago and it works great. about 2 weeks ago my desktop's connection which is wired, basically stopped working. It lets me get online, but the connection either keeps dropping or just doesnt work. Ive watched my connection and it will disconnect alot and instantly reconnect. I can get online but my page takes half a minute to load, and sometimes it just wont load and say it cannot connect to the web page.
I have tried google chrome and media firefox and they dont work either. I have reset modem and router many times and that didnt help even a bit. I have switched routers and that didnt help either. In networking safe mode, my connection is completely stable and it runs fast and loads everything. I have ran norton and malawarebytes many times and my connection is still unstable. I have stwitched ethernet cords too and that didnt help either. I have two labtops and a ps3 and their connection works completely fine so it would just be my computer. Since it runs great in networking mode, it might be hardware but i dont know what. It might not be hardware though because i am nowhere near a computer knowledgable. If anyone has any suggestions please give them, i really dont know what to do.

Answer:Wired Ethernet connection unstable, dropping every 5 sec and reconects

If the Ethernet connection is working great in the Safe Mode with Networking then the modem/router is just fine. The problem is due to something going haywire in the normal mode. Probably corruption in the Registry.

Two solutions come to mind. The first is restoring an image before the trouble started. In case you keep images then this is the better choice. Otherwise restore the computer to a previous state by System Restore when it was giving a trouble-free connection to the Net.

For reasons unknown, I have suddenly lost internet connectivity for most applications in Windows 10. Firefox gives me the "Server not found" message and Edge gives me "Hmm, we can't reach this page" for every website.

If I run Windows Update, it states, "We couldn't connect to the update service ... Make sure you are connected to the internet." In services.msc, Windows Update is shown as running, so that's not the issue.

Stranger still is the fact that the Tor Browser can access all websites. Yes, I have the Tor Browser bundle installed, and I decided to test it not expecting it to work. Color me surprised.

And of course other computers attached to the same router can also reach websites.

I recently installed a Belkin N1 wireless router. I have a Motorola PCX2500 cable modem. Windows XP Pro 64 bit.

When I connect the computer directly to the modem, I get onto the internet with no problems through either Firefox or IE. When I put the router between the computer and the modem, no internet, even though the connection between the router and computer is fine as I can access the router. Additionally, the wireless portion of the router works fine as I have another computer that can wirelessly access the internet through the router. When I try to access the internet wirelessly though the computer that was wired, still a no go. I've tried disabling the windows XP firewall, adding the programs to the firewall, and have no luck.

Any thoughts as this appears to be a settings problem to me but I'm at a loss of what it might be.

We have this issue with several T400 and T500 series ThinkPads that the Intel ethernet driver stops working after a while. All this started to happen maybe a month ago. We have both 32- and 64-bit Windows 7 OSs. Wired ethernet works ok first, but after a few hours or a day or two this yellow exclamation mark appears on the network icon and it says limited or no connectivity. Wired network stops working and there is nothing we can do to fix this other than reboot the computer. It doesn't even shut down properly, just says "Shutting down" forever and blinks the HDD led maybe once a second. So we have to force it and after booting everything is ok until the next time this happens. When the network stops working, nothing can be done with the driver because everything just hangs. You cannot disable the connection or uninstall the adapter from Device Manager or anything. Unplugging the ethernet cable does not help either. There is nothing about this problem in the Event log other than about the symptoms of not having a network connection. What could be the source of this problem? Do you have any ideas about how to diagnose this problem further? We have the newest driver and I have also tried the newest driver from Intel. 

Answer:Intel wired ethernet driver stops working

Go to Local Area Connection (Wired Intel adapter), Properties and the Configure button, in the Power Management Tab UNCHECK "Allow the Computer to turn off this device to save power". Window7 does NOT always resolve IP and DHCP when it come out of sleep etc. All attempt to release/renew are in vain. I have seen this on various systems for some time. Occassionally a router reboot fixes it but most of the time is the PC. Frustrating but for Wired use this should always be disabled if you're using it a lot. Power savings is not in your best interest. Let me know if that does it.

Answer:Limited or No Connectivity - Wired Ethernet Problem (Intel 82566MM GB NIC)

I'm having the save problem with my Lenovo T61p (with Intel 82566MM NIC).  The problem is intermittent.  Occasionally,  I lose nework connectivity and get the message "Limited or no connectivity".  I am unable to "Repair" the connection. The loss of connectivity occurs at seemingly random times.  The NIC appears to "lock-up".  I am unable to "Disable" the NIC.  Furthermore, when I attempt to restart the laptop, it does not shut down.  I have to resort to a "hard" reboot (press and hold the power button).  So, the NIC lock-up appears to be impacting Vista. After reboot, the problem is usually fixed . . . for a while. I am not having any difficulties with Wireless connections. The installed Intel 82566MM driver is  9.7.255.0 (March 5, 2008).I am running Vista OS, Service Pack 1BIOS is LENOVO 7LETC1WW (2.21), 7/1/2008 Is there a hardware or software log I can monitor to troubleshoot this issue further?

Hi everyone, I have a frustrating problem with a second hand Laptop I just bought my girlfriend to replace one i recently broke beyond ecconomical repair.

I was wary about buying 2nd-hand, but on seeing it i was fairly confident I'd be able to fix any problems on it with a clean windows install.

Here's the specs:
HP G7000 (G7065EA)
1.73Ghz Intel Pentium Dual Core
2Gb RAM
Network interface: Realtek 8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet.
Now running XP Home, SP2.

The machine came preloaded with vista, but on noticing the problem i wiped that and on XP home, fairly confident I could fix the problem.

Basically, the download speeds on this machine are roughly 1/10th what they should be. Everything else works fine, ping and upload speeds are roughly the same on all the machines in the house. The connection is not technically shared, since only one machine is connected to our cable router/modem at a time, we manually just switch cables at the router.

I ran bandwitdth tests on this machine both before and after the downgrade to XP, and compared them to the other PC's in the flat. The results on the other machines always roughly the same (Roughly 8+ Mb/s
downloads, around .5 Mb/s uploads)

The machine i just bought though, despite the fact it connects fine, and I can browse the net just fine, downloads horrendously slow in comparison. both when it was running Vista, and now thats its running XP, when i test the bandwidth I'm lucky to see more than 1 Mb/s, with the ... Read more

So I've got some ethernet wall jacks that are pre-wired to where all you need to do is take the twisted pairs from the ethernet and lay them under the screws. The only problem is that the wires on the wall jack are not the standard ethernet colors so I'm not sure how to wire it up.

On my patch cables, I wire Striped orange, orange, striped green, blue, striped blue, green, striped brown, and brown. On this wall jack the colors are: white, brown, yellow, green, red, black, orange, and blue.

Does anyone know this standard of wire color and how they match up to the standard ethernet twisted pairs?

W520 - Slow Wired EthernetI bought my w520 in late 2011, added RAM and an mSATA, and I use it still for photography tethering and everyday computing. It is equipped with an Intel 82579LM NIC. I have moved to a community with "gigabit" home Internet service and find to my amazement that this w520's LAN connection is slower than the wireless on the G or non-G band. Something is way wrong here. Other Win7 Pro machines on the same network and wired through the same switch are getting 6 times the speed. The adapter's Properties panels show driver 12.15.30.0 installed on 8/18/2015, and declines to install anything newer. There are a lot of detailed properties to set in a NIC and I'd appreciate suggestions about any choices for better flow in the Advanced Properties list. I am also searching this forum for suggestions. Most delve into wireless optimization. I am certainly used to the idea that the NIC "just works" and the wireless is sketchy... not this time. Thanks, in advance, everyone.

Only in safe mode with networking can i get 850 Mb's.

I reinstalled windows and newest drivers. No change in network speeds for the laptop.

Same speeds for wife's desktop with Intel 7260 wireless.

My plex server though is getting 850 Mb's on cat 6 100' cord.

Router is a Linksys max stream AC 1900 (ea7500) only a year old but on warranty still. Thinking of taking it back for a Netgear Nighthawk X6 AC3200.

I did order 30 min ago a Intel 9260. Hopefully that will fix my wireless but why would hardwired be showing the same speeds.

Good afternoon.  First post... please be kind.  :-) I have a T400 that I am docking on an Advanced Mini Dock (250410U).  Up until about 4 weeks ago, the Ethernet connection on the dock worked wonderfully.  Then one day, it just stopped... now, no Ethernet, only WiFi (through the laptop itself).  I have tested the jack/port on the wall.. it works fine... the Ethernet cable works fine... and the same jack/port and the same Ethernet cable, when plugged directly into my T400, work fine. I have no idea why my dock is no longer allowing wired network connections.  Anybody having this issue or aware of any fixes?  Two events coincide with this occurring but I don't believe have any impact... one was I upgraded to Windows 7, from Windows XP... but I had wired connection on 7 for at least two weeks before this occurred... and the other was I moved desks at work, but this issue popped up prior to the move. ANY help would be much appreciated!!

Answer:T400 - No Ethernet (wired network) when docked on Advanced Mini Dock (250410U)

Have you opened the machine recently? There is a cable that runs from near the fan connector (by the ethernet port) past the memory and turns toward the middle of the machine. It goes to a flat connector on the motherboard under the wireless card. If that cable is disconnected, it will yield your symptoms.

Someone asked me about hooking up there xbox to the internet. Their home is wireless and the xbox is across the room. Is there something I can get that receives the wireless signal from the network then transmits it through the wire plugged into it? Basically, the opposite of a wireless access point. Thanks.
 

Answer:Solved: Wireless network - need something that does wireless to wired for xbox

The device you want is called a wireless bridge; e.g., see http://froogle.google.com/froogle?q...r=lang_en&newwindow=1&sa=N&tab=ff&oi=froogler

I have a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router, model WRT54G. I have a PC and a Mac hard-wired to the router, with a desktop and laptop PC wirelessly connected. Until this week, all has been well.

My hard-wired computers are having no issues. My wireless laptop PC is doing fine as well.

My wireless desktop PC will not connect through the router. The odd bit is that it will connect to the router. I can ping it and even get to the router's web interface to configure it from the wireless desktop. I don't understand what is happening, any tips of suggestions? I can't connect to anything past the router; Internet, other computers' shared resources...
 

Answer:HELP: Linksys Wireless Router, wired and wireless networking

Try giving it a static IP within the range of your network. sounds crazy but I had the same problem and that solved it for me. It would see my wireless and connect but i couldnt do anything with it. It would ping and see the router too.

I found this site because this thread showed up in google search http://forums.techguy.org/networking/1080084-network-bridge-wifi-ethernet-win7.html . This is what I'm having problem with.

So here is my situation. I got a ubee router down stairs. I'm in the attic on my gaming/workstation/media server. I have all the cables and equipment to run GigE but this house was built over a 100 years ago and running much cable wont be easy.My signal in the attic isnt great but its fair *according to windows. I used the ethernet port on my motherboard upstairs and my netgear GigE hub to make a small lan for my extra gaming computer and file server. Now when I did a bridge i thought the DHCP on the router would find and give ip's to the stuff upstairs "behind the bridge" but it didnt and manual forwarding was hit and miss. So I tried ICS but that didnt work either. Then I realized I had to change the router to hand out 192.168.1 address instead of 192.168.0 but when I retried thebridge that didnt work but the ICS did. The DNS was really slow for the computers behind the ics host. My main problems is I'm notliking the ICS firewall. Stuff "in front of the host" cant see services behind it and vice versa.

For example my server behind the ICS host (gettings its IP from the win7 host) is running a bf1942 dedicated server. Every thing upstairs thats on ICS including the host can see it and connect. But nothing downstairs regardless of the OS. Now if I... Read more
