BSOD while plugged into Ethernet fine with WiFi

Question: BSOD while plugged into Ethernet fine with WiFi

Got an issue with using the Ethernet where it would Blue screen my PC. If I use WiFi, it's fine but the moment I use Ethernet it crashes with a paged fault in non paged area BSOD. I have updated drivers, cleared and reupdated drivers to noavail. Also bought a new NIC and cat5 cable and it's still causing stop errors.

Preferred Solution: BSOD while plugged into Ethernet fine with WiFi

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

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

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

Crashes point to a problem with your display card and possibly your RAM. I also see Service Pack 1 is not installed, which may be the underlying factor for all the crashes.

I am on a Win 7 based computer. New apt, new internet connection. Old router.
Connects to net fine with an ethernet cable.
Connects to the wifi signal (strong signal) with password authentication BUT no internet access.
All my laptops are experiencing the same issue- so it does not appear to be related to the computer.
I then connected the ethernet cable to a Linksys E2000. Again, good signal, clear connection BUT no internet access.
What can I do??
IPCONFIG/ALL>myTCP.txt did not produce any results in DOS (why??)
Thanks in advance.....

You can download them from here or install them from the d drive.http://support.lenovo.com/en_IN/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS033356Also if it does't fixes the issue, could you open the device manager and check if there is any unknow device or a device with a yellow triangle on the icon of any of the network device? i mean is there a ethernet driver installed.Also, check the ethernet cable, it might be at fault too. Try with another cable too.Regards

Hi, I am currently using the University campus wifi which works fine, but when I try to connect to it via ethernet, it always comes up with "no internet access" despite the wifi working fine. If I go onto network and sharing centre, the ethernet is sending bytes but only receiving very few every so often. I am using windows ten, please feel free to ask for more information, thanks for helping

My Y500 decided it couldn't receive internet on any connection today. It would connect to any network but it would say that there was no internet. I plugged my computer directly into the modem with an ethernet cable and it still said there was no internet. My router was sending out 5Ghz wifi fine and I was using several other devices on the network successfully. Any idea what could be wrong? I thought it would be my wireless card, but wouldn't I still be able to receive internet through my ethernet port then? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help. I don't want to have to buy a new laptop just because this silly nonsense. I'm at my wit's end.

Try going to the net using your browser. If you cannot connect, call your isp.

Hi

I have a ZyXEL 600 wireless router - it has worked without issues for years.

However yesterday evening my wireless router suddenly stopped broadcasting a signal.

2 different PC's and a wifi dongle attached to our TV were suddenly all unable to find my network.

The WLAN light on the router was still lit up. I connected my Acer Aspire 5742Z laptop to the router via an ethernet cable and it worked fine. I connected to the router and it said there were no errors.

I phoned ZyXEL support this morning and they dialled in, confirmed the router was reporting it was working. They installed inSSIDer on my PC and verified no signal was being picked up - but other local wireless networks were being picked up.

They suggested buying another modem as it was very old and could have just reached the end of its life.

So I bought a brand new Sitecom 300N x2 modem this morning, connected it up and have the exact same problem. All the right lights are on the modem (solid WLAN, DSL and Internet lights), I can connect via an ethernet cable but none of my devices can find a the wireless browser (but can find other networks and connect to them).

I've spent hours on the phone today to various tech people and gone through channel switching, changing encryption etc but nothing has worked. The router is sat in the same place it has been for the last 3 years and the laptop is inches from it but still no joy.

As far as I can see I've ruled out:

I have recently bought a router, the Fritz.Box Home Server 1&1 VDSL. I have set it up via wifi and can connect to the internet without a problem.
However, I would like to connect my PC to the router via LAN.
When I put the LAN cable into my PC and the router, both my PC and my router react and tell me there is a connection but they do not recognize each other. The router says there is something in LAN1 and the PC says there is a LAN cable without a connection. I cannot access the router via LAN, only via wifi.
My PC uses the Killer Network 2200e driver, I tried removing it and then manually adding it again, it did not work. My IPv4 settings seem fine, too, I have no idea what to do now.

So here is my story. A couple days ago I awoke to having no internet access over any devices connected through Ethernet or Wifi. My first thought was it was just a fluke and to power cycle my router and modem. After doing so I still got nothing. Called up my ISP thinking that the internet might be down due to a winter storm we had that night. They said that it wasn't. They sent signals to my modem and everything appeared to be working properly.

My equipment then:

Arris SB6141
Asus RT-AC3200

So I decided to make a run to Best Buy (not my first choice but convenient) to pick up a new cable modem. Purchased a Arris SB6190. Got it home, called up ISP (Spectrum) and had them provision it. Everything went smooth. Well now I was getting internet but only over WiFi. So now I'm thinking that my router bit the dust. Took another trip to Best Buy and purchased a Linksys EA9500 router. Got home, hooked it all up, same exact thing. Wifi works but everything connected through Ethernet has no connection.

Here is my IPConfig:

Answer:Ethernet won't connect to router, wifi works fine

and welcome to the Forum

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found, here's how


Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type or copy and paste the following command:

ipconfig/all > 0 & notepad 0

and press enter.

Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB drive, or a CD-R disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I have a Win 7 system. Everything was working, until a few days ago, and then the Ethernet connection stopped. The activity LEDs work, but the Ethernet will not connect. The Wifi works fine through the same router as the Ethernet is plugged into.

Here is what I did so far.Rebooted PC (full power cycle)
Rebooted router
MSCONFIG to disable all unknown services and apps
Replaced Ethernet cable
Tried a different port
Confirmed Ethernet driver is latest version
Deleted Ethernet driver anyway and reinstalled
Reset IP Stack
Set TCP/IPv4 to static IP and defined the DNS server
Confirmed the adapter's advanced settings were correct
Connected to a USB Ethernet adapter that I know works (and has worked before on this PC)

Nothing I did in the above list worked - Ethernet does not connect. The activity LEDs are working. The Network Connections shows a plugged-in Ethernet as an Unidentified Network.

Here is the IPCONFIG/ALL

Hi!
As the title explains, I have a 40k Mbit/s connection, which my father's and sister's laptop get as advertised, but my pc gets speeds that vary from 2k-15k Mbits/s. Although, when I connect to the internet via ethernet cable the speed is as advertised, around 30k-40k. So I replaced the wifi adapter usb, but that did nothing, so I ran malware tests, even though nod32 did end up removing a MyStartSearch browser malware, internet speed is still slow. My dad also reset and reconfigured the router's setting but to no avail. I'm all out of ideas at this point, what to do next?
I also checked for any programs that might interfere or limit my internet speed in any way but found none. I should also mention that between malwarebytes and nod32 ive perhaps removed the same MyStartSearch malware 5 times already.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Answer:Wifi speed is inexplicably slow, other pc's unaffected, with ethernet cable fine

I've removed the startsearch malware before and after i got the rly bad internet, it doesn't really seem to be related to it tho.

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

Whenever ethernet cable is plugged or wifi is connected, shut down will work properly until screen goes black, but power remains on : fan, LEDs still active. The only way to shut down then is to press the power button.

As network is always connected, this is really annoying.

Can you please help ?

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.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

I'm a new Plusnet customer and I cannot connect to the internet using wifi I just get a page saying the broadband is down. So I tried using an ethernet cable and after manually setting this up I can use the internet. I accidentally disconnected the cable yesterday but the internet didn't fault, it's now working wirelessly. I can connect to the wifi using my mobile and iPad but I cannot connect to the internet. A new router has been sent and the problem still persists, a bt engineer has also visited but cannot find a solution.

Can anybody please help me?
 

Answer:I can't connect to wifi but connect with an Ethernet cable works, even when it isn't plugged in

It gets confusing as to which device is being used so as a guideline
disable one or the other (wifi vs wired) and don't allow both to be active at the same time. Technically, which ever device gets an IP address from your router will become the gateway to your ISP - - ignoring the connectivity of the second device to access your router.

With a laptop, we just toggle the keyboard to enable/disable wifi and the wired is easy - - just pull the cable out.

create a desktop shortcut to \windows\system32\devmgmt.msc
to control the devices (needs admin access)
expand [+] network adapters and you'll see the list
mine are

Dell Wireless 1502 ....
Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller
Just right-click->disable and you can always right-click->enable

The png posted shows both are enabled and the wired has the gateway.
If the cable is disconnected, this is quite impossible.

SO, first control which device is to be used and then make the connection.

Hi, i have been experiencing BSODs for 3 days not. At first it started when I connected to WiFi, so i switched to ethernet cable. Now it crashes when i am using the ethernet cable as well. I tried searching for solutions but i don't understand much about computers. I have the minidump file but i don't know how to show them here. I tried using driver verifier and now it crashes every 20 minutes without even connecting to the internet. I cant put my computer into safe mode, it reboots even if i press shift +f8 and i cant create recovery disk. Can anyone please help me solve this.

Answer:BSOD when connecting to wifi and using ethernet cable

At one point during the repeated boots you should get a prompt to try startup/automatic repair.
You can also try forcing a restart when the little spinning dial is at the bottom of boot screen (by holding down the power button)
Select that, and then you can select Safe Mode to boot into.

Try each one of the options here: Safe Mode - Start Windows 8 in
If you still can't get into Safe Mode, you can always boot using your recovery media in order to access Startup Repair.

The very first thing to do in Safe Mode is to disable Driver Verifier
To do this, open up verifier.exe and select "Delete existing settings". Then click on Finish and reboot to let the changes take effect.

To upload the minidump file, zip it up and then upload it using the Attachments tool below the reply box.

Dear all,

tcpip.sys version: 6.0.6001.22167
wifi: Intel 4965AGN. Standard Gigabyte intel ethernet 82566MM

At my 2 homes using ADSL routers, there are absolutely no problems with network connection by wifi or ethernet. However, blue screen occurs when I bring this laptop to university and connect to the network via either ethernet or wifi. This happened to me a few months back. It crashed EVERY TIME when a network connection was attempted. It did not matter whether I updated my drivers on both wifi or ethernet cards. Whenever I bring it to either of my2 homes, no blue screen ever occurs.

It also happens when I attempt to connect to free wifi network in the airport. It crashes again with EXACTLY the same problem. I have to admit that I do not even where to start looking for the problems. System restore did not solve this either. I ran the WinBug analysis. It pointed towards tcpip.sys. My sys ver is at the top of this message.

I have now attached minidump for your kinda reference. Would appreciate if someone can point this to the right direction. I am seriously thinking of downgrading this to XP, since it had NEVER happened to XP.

Thanks.

If I run it from internal graphics it's fine, so I don't understand what's going on. 480W is enough power, right?
I also can't actually get a signal from the GPU (using DVI to HDMI or DVI to VGA), the only way I can see that the HD isn't being detected is by using the on-board VGA while the GPU's plugged in.
I've tried turning internal graphics off, however the only option available is to turn it off if something's plugged into the PCI-e port, so that doesn't change anything.
Any help/info/suggestions are greatly appreciated, thanks.

Answer:HD not detected when GPU plugged in (fine without)

For anyone interested, I tried a low-profile GPU (730) and it's fine, so it must just be the PSU that's on it's way out (38a on the 12v, which I should have clarified in the first place... And the mobo model, but never mind).

hello,i recently bought hp pavillion au084tx which i use mostly for gaming purpose.I am experiencing lagging when i run the game on battery(when i am not plugged in to power) but it works perfectly fine when i am plugged in.I basically play medium graphic range games which i think run perfect with my laptop specifaction. The gpu clock speed falls drastically when using on battery.Is this a battery issue or is there a solution for this

Answer:Games lag on battery but works fine when plugged in

hardik99 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! No, this is not a battery issue. Laptops are designed to lower performance when running on battery in order to conserve power. If you go into the Start Menu and enter "Power Options" you will be able to change the Power Plan your laptop uses. Here's a thread that discusses the different plans: http://www.howtogeek.com/240840/should-you-use-the-balanced-power-saver-or-high-performance-power-pl...Good Luck

Hi,

Last night I was watching videos etc. as normal but woke up this morning and nothing...no sound. The picture is still there and great, just no sound to accompany it. Have been scrolling through tonnes of websites for advice etc. for the last 3 hours or so but nothing seems to be working.

I've checked the 'playback devices' but nothing is showing...even though the monitor has built in speakers. I've checked the sound cards for updates and they're fine also. All sound is up to maximum, I've even tried headphones and different plug in speakers but nothing. Used Dell detect tool thing but didn't find anything. The only thing the computers telling me is that the audio peripheral is not plugged in..?

Any thoughts??

The computer in question is a Alieanware x51, i5 processor.

Happy to add any more information if I've missed it.

Hi if anyone can help i would be so greatful!!

I have a laptop which slows down as soon as i plug it into the mains. When running on batteries it is as fast as it should be and is perfect. I could comprehend the problem if it was the otherway around but this is too wierd.

I have rebooted the wholes system, it is clean as a whistle, over 30G of space, Virus checker / Firewall / ADaware remover / Registry cleaner / Defraged / Disk Cleanup - everything is in working order to keep this machine clean and healthy and it is.

The problem is most apparent when watching movies or clips, as the image goes out of sinc with the sound, freezes or goes super-slow, yet as soon as i remove the plug, and it's running on batteries it's fine again.

I know someone out there must have a solution.

thanks
 

Answer:Laptop runs slow when plugged in, but fine on battery power

Do you have access to another power cord to try. It kind of sounds like that there is a problem with the one that you have. I suppose that the problem could be internal to the laptop itself, but the swapping with a known good cord would tell you where the problem is. Of course, if you always use the same wall outlet, the problem could be there.

Recently I have been having problems viewing YouTube, Hulu and videos on other websites with either Firefox or IE, videos all appear zoomed way in to the point of not being able to make them out, but the videos play fine using Chrome.

Plus when trying to play wmv or avi through Windows Media Player the videos all appear to zoomed way in just like on-line videos where you can not view them too, but if I load the videos into another media player they work fine.
If I unplug the power adapter on my laptop and run off battery power videos play perfect then if I plug adapter back in even while watching a video the video will zoomed way in.

If I log on as a different user all videos play fine. I really don't want to have to get all my programs and stuff setup under a new user if I don't have to.

Hello,

I'm hoping that someone can help me solve my various BSOD events with windows 10. My windows logs are also full of critical errors.

Essentially, every few days, (I can't replicate the issue at will), after I've used my laptop (Fujitsu u904 Lifebook) on it's docking station (Network via Ethernet), when I reboot off the docking station (Network via WiFi) I get a combination of errors. These range from:

- a message saying that Windows was unable to start the The Group Policy Client
- a blank desktop with no shortcuts
- clicking on the start button doesn't work (but the windows key does)

While not all thee errors happen together, what does happen is that I'm unable to connect to Wifi and the network icon is not visible in the tray.

Sometimes these are also accompanied by the BSOD CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED.

I know error this is about to happen, because when I power down from the docking station (I never take or put my laptop on/off it without it being powered down), I hear an error sound and then when next rebooting (off the dock), the Wifi symbol on the lock screen before entering the password has changed to the Wifi symbol with a small circle at the top left. Sure enough my windows event logs show various errors including a number listed as error No 7031,

I'm not a techie but read elsewere that if this happens, entering "netsh" & "winsock reset" from the admin screen does solve the problem after rebooting, but I'm having to do this every c... Read more

Hi guys,

I've got my uncle's Acer Aspire 5536 that I am having some trouble with. He said that the laptop just decided not to work.

When I press the power button absolutely nothing happens.
When I plug my charger in, the power button lights up blue and so does the battery light (Orange when was charging, now blue).

There is still nothing happening when I press the power button though.

I've tried taking the battery and charger out and holding the power button for a few minutes then connect the charger, to no avail!

I popped the casing above the keyboard off to make sure that the power button wasn't just stuck. All seems fine.

Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated!

So with everything updated and working properly, my connection keeps dropping in and out. Wireless works just fine though.

Hi, this my first time posting and I really would refrain from bothering people if I could, but I've been having this issue with my wireless for the last month so I thought perhaps someone could help.

The OS is a Windows XP home.

I go into IPCONFIG/ALL and it tells me that my wireless is disconnected



I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers.
I've tried going into the router (it's a NETGEAR MR814) IP, and I've added it to the list of devices that can connect to it, but it's not working. It just... won't work. It's not that there's a security lock on my router because I've disabled it and it still wouldn't work.

So now I'm completely befuddled, and disheartened, and on the verge of just taking apart my machine were it not for the ethernet connection. Can someone please help?

Answer:Ethernet works fine, Not Wireless

First try going into network property and see if you can see it.
If you see something like "Local Area connection 2" with wireless network card, right click on the icon and view available network/connection.
If you see your wireless router setting, highlight and click "Connect".

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

Ideas?

(Background info to save time)

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

First of all, I want to thank you guys in advance for putting your time and effort to solve my issue. any answer would be grateful to me.

My internet provider is At&t and as I mentioned in the title, wireless internet works perfectly fine, but Ethernet connection doesn't work on my desktop. Currently I am using wireless adapter on my PC, and it works just fine. I tried disabling the wireless connection, resetting the modem, re installing the Ethernet driver and anything I can think of.

The odd thing is that my brother used Ethernet connection just fine with his desktop about three weeks ago, with same router and same cable. So I am assuming that my computer is the one with the problem but I can't figure it out why.

I'm going to try out the different cable tomorrow, but I highly doubt it will fix my problem.

Answer:Wireless works fine, Ethernet doesn't

Odds are that the NIC has failed.

Another low possibility (in addition to cable and router LAN port) are the PC's firewall or security suite misconfigured or corrupted.

Another thing to try: in Device Manager right click on the ethernet - Properties - Advanced tab - for the 'Speed & Duplex' property try different values beginning with '100 Mbps full duplex' and '10 Mbps full duplex.'

Hi, I am using the Actiontec MI-424WR or MI424WR router that I am provided by verizon. My service provides 15 Mbps down 2 Mbps up. When I first got the service earlier this month tests done at speakeasy showed 15/1.7 which was normal. The past week or so, my connection has deteriorated to being now about 300-700k/1.7. I still get full upload speed, but I don't get anywhere near the download speed I should be getting. My mother's computer which is on a wireless connection gets 10 mbps which is good for wireless. I have also put a wireless card in my laptop which gets 10 mbps also. I still can figure out though why a wired connection would have issues. I tried searching all the help forums, but I cant find an answer. I am not sure whether its my laptop's ethernet port or the router's ethernet, I have checked all 4 ports on the router.

I'm sure this has been asked 1000 times but I cannot seem to find my exact issue anywhere. Hopefully this helps myself and anyone who runs into this issue.

To start, I have Windows 7 Professional 64bit. Everything worked 100% fine with absolutly no issue and then.... I moved. Now we have Fios instead of Comcast.

Now to the issue. When I have the ethernet connected I cannot get internet access but I have full network access. I went out and purchased a new wirless card and wirless works just fine. I tested 2 different cables, recrimped both of them and nothing. I have activity on the PC and the Router so I am sure they are good.

I have tried everything I have read online, Updated Realtek Family PCI Ethernet drivers from MSIglobal. Disabled/Enabled. ipconfig /flushdns, /release and /renew. I went as far as Backing up and reformating the Hard Drive and before reinstalling the backup I tested it and nothing. Restored my backup file and yep.. nothing.

Its kind of frustrating. I'm not exactly and expert but i am in no way a novice either. This one has me stumped. Im thinking maybe it is a windows service that is not set to start correctly but I figured I would creat a post while I am at work and maybe have and answer to test before I hunt through the services tonight.

Any advice is greatly appreciated

The hub went in yesterday. Cable modem is in port 1
OS X laptop is in port 2. OS X found a connection with no problem.
XP box is in port 3. XP says, 'weak connection' and delivers nothing.

And I am dead in the water. The Network Setup Wizard on XP advises tells me to turn off file/printer sharing so Windows Firewall can protect the computer. Other sources on the web tell me that Windows Firewall is a joke, and that any third party firewall is a better choice. File sharing is an integral part of having a network at home, I thought.

What am I missing? Before the hub, I was just turning off the cable modem and switching ethernet cords. It was not an elegant system, but it worked.

Do I need to designate one computer as an always-on server? I prefer not to do that. All I want to do is share the cable connection, and occasionally move some files.

I have only a PC and an android connected, occasionally and android tablet as well.

The PC can connect via wifi, if ethernet is disabled and then modem, router, PC restarted, but I can't seem to figure out a way to get the ethernet connection to work. I've tried DHCP and Static IP configurations, and I've tried connecting the ethernet directly to the modem instead of the router, but to no avail. I believe I've managed at times to access the router from the PC (only with static IP), but never the internet as well. I've tried 3 cat 5 cables as well.

Here are some pictures with more details of my config

I've been banging my head against this for 8+ hours...can anyone see what I'm missing?

Hello. I have three Dell XPS PCs connected via a Verizon Actiontec router to each other and to the internet, all running Windows 10 (two preinstalled, one upgraded from Windows 7). All connect fine to the internet via Ethernet and wifi, but they can only see/connect to each other via wifi. They cannot see each other via Ethernet; instead I have to turn wifi on for each of them to see/access each other. Not exactly sure when this started, but it wasn?t always like this (some windows update maybe?) I haven?t found my particular problem in searching forums, and there are so many options on what to try to fix other network issues, I?m not sure where to start.

If it?s a hardware issue, I would think it would be with the router, as it?s unlikely the hardware would fail on all three PCs. But since I can connect to the internet via both Ethernet and wifi, I think it?s unlikely a router problem. I have Norton 360 running on all the PCs, but I?ve tried disabling the firewalls, adding Network Trust and Device Trust, and the problem still exists, and again, all works fine over wifi. Could be a network driver problem, but I?ve tried uninstalling and letting windows reinstall the driver, and that hasn?t helped.

So some other setting that got messed up on all three computers at some point? Renaming the workgroup and/or PCs? An ipv6 issue? Any ideas on where to start??

Thanks for your help.

Answer:connect to internet via ethernet and wifi but to network only on wifi

Hey not sure if this has been posted up before i had a quick look but i seem to be getting this one frustrating problem with my network card or something.
Each time i load up my computer everything is running nice and smoothly when i start to open up alot of things that uses internet (or simply play a game) all of a sudden my network card dies and starts saying "An Ethernet cable is not plugged in" blah blah. Anyways the cable works 100% I've tried about 6 different cables all resulting in the same thing..

I've tried updating the driver that still didn't fix
I've tried uninstalling the network adapter and reinstall didn't fix it
I've disabled Ivp6 thingy still doesn't fix it

I'm connected to a Router/homenetwork using a REALTEK PCIe GBE Family Controller and computer specs are in my profile.

Hello everyone!

So I've had this problem before and I went to a PC-Shop that fixed it by putting another driver on the PC.
But now I have a new PC and after 6 months without any problems Windows suddenly decides there is no ethernet cable plugged in the PC. I've googled for hours and hours trying diffrent things, but nothing seems to work . The cable itself is fine because when I plug it into my laptop it works fine. I've updated my driver, deleted it and try to reinstall, which also failed. I tried out some commands through CMD, which also failed. And now I'm at the point where I have no clue what to do, so I hope you guys can help me with it!
It is a custom-build PC with a Asus Z87-A motherboard (in-case that's necessary to know) and the driver that's installed is Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller. OS: Windows 8.1. If there is anything more you need to know feel free to ask!

Please help me! Thanks in advance!

Answer:Ethernet cable plugged in, Windows says not

Wrong driver most likely installed. Go to the Asus website and download the correct driver for your motherboard, for the Ethernet chipset.

Hi, I just built a new computer yesterday and I was using a usb wifi adapter. The wifi seemed a little slow to me so I wanted to switch to ethernet cable. I picked up a 50 foot cable at fry's and connected from the modem/router top my computer. I was told that connection would happen instantly but it didn't. I tried downloading drivers, messing around in settings, and removing the battery from my motherboard for a minute and putting it back in. The ethernet cable is not the problem since it works when i use it on the other computer that is currently on ethernet cable as well.

I'm running windows 7.

Answer:Ethernet cable unplugged when its plugged in

Welcome to the forum Stevo838.

If your using a USB cable to connect to your Modem, you need the USB driver for the Modem installed on the computer. The ethernet driver only controlls the ethernet controller, not the USB devices.

If you have an ethernet cable, use it instead of the USB, it's faster anyway.

xp boots up normally and, seems, to run normally untill the ethernet cable is plugged in... at which point, everything locks up frozen.
i've tried updating drivers, removing drivers, scanning for any possible malware, swapping in an alternative graphics card.  defaulting bios.

Answer:xp locking up when ethernet cable plugged in

Hi  Ken
 
Is your issue related to your other thread? Was it resolved already? Since you've mentioned of ethernet, its possible that there is something wrong with your Ethernet adapter as it needs to be replaced/updated/reseatted properly and see if one of this would resolve the freezing issue.

Answer:Wireless turns of when Ethernet plugged in

Hi jandersfam,1. Uninstall Access Connections if you're using it. Or open Access Connections and go to Configure|Automatic Location Switching and TURN OFF "Enable automatic location switching." You also have to go Configure|Global Settings and TURN OFF "Enable automatic wireless LAN radio control." Subsequently, select Windows to configure my wireless network settings following proceeding steps:-a) Click Start | Control Panel  b) Double-click Network Connections  c) Right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon | Properties | Wireless Networks tab  d) Check 'Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings;e) Click OK. Your computer should now be using Windows' built-in wireless configuration utility.2. Further, go to Device Manager | Properties for the wifi card | under Power Management, uncheck | 'allow computer to turn off device to save power'Hope it helps.

Starting 3 days ago I started having issues with my WiFi. at first it started with the "!" popping up (sorry im not very tech savvy) and i could just trouble shoot problems and it will repair itself. It Then, it started saying there weren't any networks available (I made sure airplane mode was not on and everything) and it either had the picture of the monitor with the X over it or the WiFi thing with the X over it. I did trouble shoot and it worked sometimes but other times I just restarted my PC and it worked fine for a while and would keep doing this. Last night, it had the monitor with the X and would say that I needed to plug in an Ethernet cable and trouble shoot wouldn't fix anything. I tried resetting my PC but its still having the same problem. I now have the Ethernet cable plugged in because its the only thing that will work. I have a desktop computer, two phones, and a ps4 hooked up to the wifi and it hasn't been having any problems at all. I have windows 10 and ive had this PC for about a year and a half. I don't have much downloaded except for some trusted things (Steam, Firefox, chrome, etc) and I havent been deleting any programs or anything.

Today an issue popped up with my network connection, when I plug in an ethernet cable to my laptop, it still shows as no cable detected. I have a Dell Insipron 1750 with a Marvel Yukon 88E8040 ethernet controller.

It's not a cable issue, as I plugged it in to another computer and it works just fine.

It had the latest driver available for it. I uninstalled the controller and let Windows detect it again and use an older driver but it still has the same issue.

The real complicated part of all of this though, is that I'm trying to connect to my work network. The ethernet cable is plugged directly into a jack on the wall, not into a router or modem directly.

Yesterday, the internet for the entire building went down. I reset the modem and the Cisco box and that corrected the issue for all of the computers except for mine, which I did not test last night.

Can anybody offer any insight into this for me?

Answer:Plugged In Ethernet Cable Not Detected

Could be a bad ethernet controller. How old is the laptop, is it under any type of warranty? If under warranty, Dell could replace the controller.

I had that happen on an old Dell laptop, which I use wireless only.

Hi there, thanks in advance.

I've had this computer a few months and so far it works great. Then today I turn it on and try to go on the internet and it says I have no connection. Tried plugging and unplugging the cable, wiggled it around, tried to connect it with a different cable and I still have no internet. The cable is in, it tells me there is a local area connection and all, but when I go to properties there is not IP, etc etc.

I have it on a network, if that helps, and none of the others have this problems. The computer prints to a shared printer attached to another computer on my network, so I tried to print something to see if that was still working, but it says it can't due to an unknown error.

Is there a fix for this?
 

Answer:Computer seems fine, but the ethernet input doesn't work?

You might try cycling the modem and router.
Unplug the power from the back of the router and modem for 10 seconds.
Plug the router back in and let it boot up,then do the same with the modem.

Earlier my desktop was to b in d same place where the router was der. Everything worked fine. Now I decided to shift my desktop to another room. I have kept the router at the earlier place only. I have brought a 25m long new cat 5 cable. When I connected it to my desktop, the orange led on ethernet port do not light up and the desktop is unable to detect the ethernet cable and hence the internet connection. On the router, a light of ethernet keeps on blinking every 1 second. I was worried whether my ethernet port got fried. So i inserted another ethernet cable, but then the ethernet orange light came and the pc detedted the connection. Therefore I thought the cable might be faulty. Therefore I connected my laptop with that 25m cable. But my laptop detected it and showed the internet connection. But now when i again connect the cable to my desktop, there's no light and the pc does not detect it. However, if i connect the 25m cable to my desktop then during boot the ethernet light on router is stable just as when it is normally connected to the internet. But when i go into windows it starts blinking every 1 second.

Looking for some help here as I'm stuck.
3 year old Toshiba laptop (Satellite P100). Ethernet and wireless both worked fine with XP. Since upgrading to Windows 7, my wireless is fine, but I can't connect to the internet via Ethernet. Other computers in the house are connected to my router (linksys WRT54GL) and work fine. I've set up an IP address manually (like I have on the other computers) with no luck. Automatically setting it will not work either. I'm using just TCP/IPv4 (v6 is unchecked, older router doesn;t support it). I've played with just about everything I can think of and still no luck.
The strange thing is that when I try to load a website, the data seems to trickle in for a second. For example, going to google.com, it will look like its loading, but nothing will come up. Then just the text will come up after maybe 20 seconds, but the logo (ie graphics) will not. It will just hang there and time out. Any normal webpage I visit will just sit on a blank screen then Firefox will report it's "done" at the bottom, but nothing will be displayed.

I also cannot log-on to my router, same problem, it will not load the web interface page, and will just time-out.

Under the "Network and Sharing" center everything appears to be fine. It will say I am connected to my network, and the diagnostics will not find anything wrong. Still, no internet.

Hi

I recently bought a Asus WL-700ge storage router. It's got a built in hard drive and thatís all I'm using it for, the storage. I already have a wireless network setup in my home which my XP PC connects happily to. The problem is, when I connect my new Asus box via Ethernet to my PC, web pages stop loading. I don't loose the connection and windows say's both connections are happy. When I unplug the Ethernet I can once again access the internet. I think it might have something to do with the IP addresses of the devices or a setting Iíve missed in the configuration of the Asus router. although I've tried just about every combination of static and dynamic addresses on my PC and the Asus box. If anyone can help it would be really great! One of the main reason I bought this device was so I could download large files from the web directly to it, obviously right now thatís impossible!

Hey Guys,I've got quite a major problem on my hands, and absolutely no idea what to do. Recently, I upgraded the houses' internet to fiber (or so its called in Chinese, living abroad in Shanghai BTW)and the within the first day of upgrading, I've seen a tremendous increase in internet speeds. However, within a day, a new problem also came up. Whenever I plug the ethernet cable into its port at the back of my PC, all the open programs suddenly stop responding, and then my PC freezes. I've tried booting up without the ethernet cable plugged in, and everything works perfectly. Yet the second I plug in the ethernet, everything stops working. The conditions are as follows: -I am unable to CTRL - ALT - DELETE to bring up task manager.- The mouse cursor is still moveable, but nothing can be clicked or selected-The cursor turns into the spinning loading circle, but never finishes whatever it's trying to do.I am forced to manually power down (hold the power button or unplug) the PC. However, rebooting in Safe Mode with Networking yields no problems. The internet connects just fine, and there is no freezing/lagging going on at all. I'm currently posting this from Safe mode w/ Networking. The conditions are pretty much the same when I plug in the ethernet cable to my Macbook.

Am I being too cautious?

Answer:Internet connection by ethernet / wireless - always on / plugged in?

Welcome to the forum yes it can give problems if it's down loading or updating it can confuse Windows as well

I've got a wireless adapter for my desktop and thats what i've been using for years to connect, but now i'm am trying to get a more reliable connection by having the ethernet cable plugged in. Problem is, as soon as I plug it in the whole computer gets extreamly sluggish or sometimes freezes up completely. If I am very patient, I can very slowly do something things. If I open the browser, it probably takes a minute for it to load. Opening the control panel, the window pops-up but none of the icons will appear until it times out. And trying to use the network icons on the taskbar to get into network settings is impossible. Weird thing is as soon as I unplug it and turn the wifi back on, the PC starts responding super quick again within seconds...

Any thoughts?

I own a toshiba satellite C655-S5061 with win7x64 sp1 ultimate installed on it. My internet (wired) connection used to work fine until yesterday. Troubleshooter says "an ethernet cable is not properly plugged in or might be broken", Tried a repair install, updated drivers, reinstalled drivers but of no avail. The ethernet cable when connected to other laptop works fine. Any solutions?

Answer:an ethernet cable is not properly plugged in or might be broken

Do you have a spare ethernet cable? Test it with yr laptop, does the same issue persist? If it does, then yr ethernet port might be faulty.

My computer has an odd problem. When I boot up, the computer starts to load and then freezes. The desktop is visible, the mouse moves, but clicking on any program is useless. Even CTRL+ALT+DELETE does not pull up the task manager.

To troubleshoot, I unplugged the Ethernet cable and then rebooted. Everything worked fine. Nothing was sluggish. Nothing was frozen. But when I plugged the ethernet cable back into the computer, it freezes. Thus, I cannot connect to the Internet to run any Internet-based diagnostics.

Virus scans showed no "infections."
Running Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware found "adware.popcap," which I deleted. But this did not resolve the problem.

I appreciate any help you may provide in solving this mystery.

Thanks!

Answer:Computer Freezes if Ethernet Cable is Plugged In

Argus, is this cable the same one you have used before? Do this for me, hlod the cable with both connector ends(side-by-side) and see if, pin for pin, the color of the wires are the same or different(pins 1 thru 8)? Let us know? Also, are you going thru a hub or fast-switch, and what type?

Hi all:

The other day, I installed the latest update to Windows 10 Pro (version 1709). Prior to that, I had had no issues with internet connectivity.

Now, I do not have an internet connection and I am getting the message that my Ethernet cable is not plugged in. Nothing I do seems to fix it. I have tried the following:

- reboot
- shut down, unplug computer, hold power button for 15 seconds, plug back in, and reboot
- disable and re-enable ethernet adapter in the Network Connections control panel
- change the "Speed & Duplex" under Advanced in the Device Manager for the network adapter to both "100 Mbps Half Duplex" and "1.0 Gbps Full Duplex" (rebooting after each)
- uninstall network adapter and reboot the computer
- roll back to prior version of Windows 10. (this seemed to fix the problem, but the next time I rebooted the computer, it was back)
- download latest drivers on my laptop and install them via USB drive
- unplug and reseat cable at both ends
- try all ports on the back of my cable modem
- switch cable ends

The only thing I have not done is try a different ethernet cable. I very much doubt that this is the issue; I had zero problems with internet connectivity prior to this Windows update.

What else can I try? Thanks.

That is the first thing you should have tried.

I have my internet coming from my DSL modem (of course) and running into my wireless router. Once it is in the router I can't get a connection, period. Not even through any of my router's ethernet ports. This wasn't the case until about 3 o'clock yesterday. If I unplug the cable from my wireless router and plug it directly into my computer it runs fine. If I run it through my Micro-Cell tower and into my computer it runs fine. But if I plug it into a router it won't work through Wi-Fi or Ethernet. I have tested the connections of all the ethernet cables I am using. Figuring it had to be a problem with my router (since it was working earlier and the connection only disappears when plugged into it) so I bought another, same problem. What else could it be? PS: I'm using both a MacBook Bro, a PC, a PS3, and a Nintendo 3DS and none get a signal from the wifi. I always keep the PC hardwired through the ethernet ports on the router and use the wireless for everything else. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? It's so frustrating to know that their is a connection, but for some reason it just decides to not work through the router.
 

Answer:Internet works through Ethernet, until plugged into router?

with the old router - whats the make and model
do a complete power cycle - see below
if that does not work - you could try doing a factory reset on the router - usually a button or hole in the back - and you need to hold in between 10-30seconds

if all that fails
lets see an ipconfig /all from the pc connected by cable to the router and the router connected to the modem - make sure its connected to the correct ports on the router

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

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

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

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

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
Next

Recently I performed a reinstallation of windows on my laptop. Normally I had no problems with the wireless, but after the reinstallation my laptop refuses to acknowledge that there are wireless networks. When I'm not connected to the internet, it asks to connect using a wire connection only.

I have a Dell Inspiron iM101z running Windows 7 Home Premium, and I downloaded all the drivers for what the Dell website told me my laptop model was, a Dell Inspiron 1121. Attached is a picture showing the oddities of my problem. The icon on the taskbar shows that I have to connect with an ethernet cord; no wireless icon is shown.

If I try to unplug the ethernet cable and connect to the internet, I only get the option to do a broadband connection. Also, once I unplug the cable, I get "no connections available."

Answer:Laptop refuses to detect anything wireless, ethernet works fine

Most likely this is still a driver problem.

Since I upgraded to Windows 10 Home from Windows 7, I've noticed that from a cold boot - e.g. PC has been turned off for several hours, the Ethernet network icon has the red X through it and I dont get any internet/network access.

It reports that the cable is unplugged. It definitely is plugged in, it goes straight into a Netgear Powerline homeplug.

If I then reboot, it connects straight away no problem at all.

I havent installed the motherboards LAN drivers, but thought it might be something else before I tried that?

I am trying to connect to my Asus RT N66U using a TP Link AV1200 Powerline. I can connect my PC to the router fine over wifi, and the ethernet over the powerline is working fine for my android TV box (powerline status lights all look good too). But on my PC attempting to use the ethernet just gives 'No Network Access'. Does anyone know where I am going wrong?

Hey so at my apartment complex all I have is wifi available, there seems to be a ethernet port on the wall downstairs but I dont think it works. I was thinking of getting a Wifi to Ethernet adapter but I do not know if that actually will make it so my connection is stable and doesnt get affected by people streaming etc. I notice that it says it would pick up wifi and then I could use my ethernet to connect it to my computer. I don't really understand how all this works. I would like some help figuring out what to do. I can always try that port. or is there something I can plug into that port that would give me a stable connection? I'm running out of ideas. Anything helps. Thanks!
 

Answer:I only have wifi available at my apartment. will using a wifi to ethernet adaptor help?

you can do that with some devices
BUT I do not think it will make any difference to your issues , as its still using the wireless signal

it will get affected by people streaming

in the LAN connection , have you tried plugging a cable into a laptop ?

Answer:Computer Crashes When Ethernet Is Plugged In. Virus Related.

Hello,I notice from your log that you are running more than one different Anti-Virus/firewall programs with Auto-protect enabled. CA Internet Security Suite, McAfee and AVGNever install more than one Antivirus and Firewall! Rather than giving you extra protection, it will decrease the reliability of it seriously! The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, your system may lock up due to both software products attempting to access the same file at the same time. Also because more than one Antivirus and Firewall installed are not compatible with eachother, it can cause system performance problems and a serious system slowdown. I would strongly advise you to only have one Anti-Virus with the Auto-Protect feature running at any one time!If you decide to only keep one Anti-Virus installed, you should uninstall the other(s) through the Add or Remove Programs option in Control Panel.So start with that first, because that may already solve your problem.Then post a new Hijackthislog in your next reply.

I have an old laptop running Windows 2000 and a PC running XP. I decided to use the old laptop as a second monitor using Maxivista, and it requires that both computers be connected by a TCP/IP connection. My PC is connected to the internet wirelessly to a router downstairs, and it is connected to my laptop via an ethernet cable.
Right now the TCP/IP is not working, in the command script when I ping the DNS server and Default Gateway (of the Lan connection) on both computers it doesn't work and it gives me a "request timed out" message.
But the main problem is that when my laptop is on or I have the ethernet cable connected to the laptop the internet on my PC stops working. When I turn off the laptop or pull out the cable my internet starts working again.
Any ideas as to what is the problem?

Answer:Wireless internet disconnects when LAN ethernet cable is plugged in

You must be using a cross-over cable in this instance. A regular LAN patch cable will not work.
Set the IP on your ethernet connection to a different subnet than used by your wireless LAN.

For example, if your Wireless LAN is distributing / using IPs in the subnet 192.168.x.x, set up your ethernet and laptop adapters as follows:

Desktop:
IP address: 10.0.0.1
Subnet Mask: 255.0.0.0
Gateway: 10.0.0.2

Laptop:
IP address: 10.0.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.0.0.0
Gateway: 10.0.0.1

You do not need to set any DNS address.

Hello, I'm hoping you can help me with an issue that I am currently experiencing with four HP 3125 netbooks. I work for a school system, and we re-image these devices every summer. The problem with these particular four netbooks is that the wired connection, will not work when plugged into the port. So I can not get these to re-image for use in the classroom. I have checked our network, and tried new cables, still nothing. I have tried to replace the realtek ethernet driver, and that didn't take care of the issue. I actually had 8 all together, and by doing a bios update, that took care of four. Now I'm left with these devices that I cannot use. Any thoughts?? I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.   Thank you,Angie

I have a combination modem/router supplied by my internet service. My main floor desktop computer is connected directly via Ethernet cable. Two laptops, an ipad and a couple of TV's connect wirelessly. I have a large house with an office in the basement which is pretty much underground and on the other end of the house, so I recently ran a second Ethernet cable from the upstairs modem/router to a desktop computer in my downstairs office. The connection itself worked fine. I did notice, however, that my wireless connections would not work when the second Ethernet cable was plugged into the modem/router. When I unplugged it, wireless started working again. Could the problem be with the Ethernet cable? It is a CAT 5e cable which I made myself since I needed a custom length. It is my first one, so of course I am doubting myself. It works fine except for the problem it creates with my wireless devices. (My level of expertise is a little more than beginner, but I'm not quite sure I would call myself intermediate yet either.)
 

Answer:Solved: Wireless won't work when second ethernet cable plugged in

Check the settings for the ethernet and wireless devices in that basement desktop.

Some computers will disable one device when the other device is being used.

TerryNet and etaf and a few others are the networking experts here, so one of them will probably jump in to help you.
