XP VM under Windows 8 shows network cable unplugged

Q: XP VM under Windows 8 shows network cable unplugged

I'm not much of a VM expert. I have a couple of win7 systems running a WinXP VM that I installed manually, in all those cases, the virtual network has always just booted up and worked. Under Win8 Pro-RTM, I did a XP VM that I loaded myself (versus an XP mode) and it loads the virtual network adapter but it reports that the cable is unplugged

I'm not clear on what this means. Obviously, it's a VM so there is no cable to plug in. I'm guessing I'm suppose to match that Virtual Nic to the regular (aka Host's) NIC but I'm not see any options to do so.

On the same system I run windows 7 Ult and a XP install and the network loads up on boot.

Any guesses here?

Thanks

Dale

Hi there

There are too many possibilities here because we don't know what VM program you're using:
Virtual PC, Hyper-V, VirtualBox, VMPlayer/Wokstation, Parallels, others?...

I have seen many posts here about network cable unplugged issues and i am having similar and other strange issues in Vista Home Premium x64 on HP Paviollion.

The issues seem to have originated with one of the updates...then again, i've seen posts here that others have started having trouble after using a router. Does window not have a clue what it's doing?

anyway, ipconfig reports the net cable is unplugged and I know the cable is good, whatever the case, I cannot connect to my network or directly to internet using ethernet...

in addition to that, for a 2 days, i had my girlfriends computer (Vista x32) plugged into mine so she could use the internet through me...then it stopped working and we both have the same problem(network cable unplugged). One clue that maybe helpful to someone this that when I a plug into another computer or network, and I am using wireless internet at the time...it ceases to work although it shows the wireless as connected to UNIDENTIFIED NETWORK(MYINTERNET PROVIDER) when i mouseover the system tray icon (the wired net still says network cable unplugged regardless of what I try;drives, restart, reenable etc)

Does anyone Really know where this problem originates since it's so common? Should I just give it up and reinstall XP until Vista works well enough to be useful?

hi warmbetty welcome to vista forum,

Basically windows XP claims that my CAT 5e network cable is unplugged from the ethernet adapters in my PC's (which it is not) and will not let me set up a network.

Both PC's claim that the cable is unplugged... do I have to enable some sort of setting in the BIOS or do I have to tweak a setting of some sort?

I am having this issue and have been searching online for days with no solution, so hoping someone here can help..
I have a dell laptop that suddenly started getting this message about network cable is unplugged, when it in fact isn't.. I cannot run ipconfig, i get an error that says it's not allowed. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers. The light on the network port is on, and I've tried several known working cables with no luck. I even went so far as to buy a dlink ethernet adapter that plugs into the laptop slot (pcm I think it's called) and this network card has the same issue, however works perfectly in another machine. I have tried winsock repairs I found online, but having no luck anywhere.
Any suggestions? Any further questions? Thanks!

A:Network cable unplugged error, but it's not unplugged

If it is not unplugged, you have a damaged socket, damaged cable, or damaged or defective ethernet card.
What error flags to you have in the Device Manager?
What is your Dell model and how old is it?
Using a strong light and a magnifying glass, look for bent or twisted wire in the ethernet socket., or just plain ol dirt, dust, hair, and fiber.
Still, a bad cable is most user's most likely problem. Do't forget that the other end of the connection can give you the same error message.

So my network icon shows the cable and a red X, but I'm posting this from the same computer. I have two adapters, but one is disabled. I have tried disabling the adapter in use, enabling the other, and plugging the cable into that...same problem. I got a different cable out, and still have the same problem.

It's not a functionality problem, but still...it's annoying as hell ^.^

A:Icon shows cable unplugged, but I'm posting this. Only one adapter.

The onboard network adapter can be disabled from the BIOS.
It's usually a good idea to disable it from there, if you're not going to use it.

Hi, I have a brand new Dell Precision Workstation with Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. I have not been able to connect to networks or the internet. It does not recognize that it is plugged into the network/internet via an ethernet cable. The computer has a Broadcom NetLink Gigabit Ethernet adapter which appears to be detected and running normally. However it says "network cable unplugged" even though it is fully plugged in. Does anyone know of a solution or what the problem may be?

Hello,

Since last night, my LAN connection has been giving me the error "Network cable unplugged." I have tried swapping the cable with another, swapping the ports on the router, restarting the router, power cycling the router, turning off the router and my computer and then turning them back on, and nothing has worked.

My computer has two network connections: Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller and a Hamachi network, which the computer is using (but not getting Internet on, of course) - I assume because it isn't giving a network cable unplugged error. This is the network controller that comes on my Gigabyte MA790X-UD4P motherboard, and it has the latest driver from the manufacturer's site (7.6.820.2009). In the device manager, it says that the device is working properly. There is a green light under the ethernet cable on the router, but not where it attaches to the motherboard (I can't remember if there was one before or not, though).

The Realtek Diagnostics Tool says the following:
IP Address 0.0.0.0
Connection NAme: Local Area Network
Link Status: Disconnected

It has a tab for Cable diagnostics, which says the following (Pair/Length/Status):

1-2 0 Normal
3-6 115 Normal
4-5 0 Normal
7-8 191 Short

When I run diagnostics, Register, Mac Loopback, PHY Loopback, IRQ, and FIFO all pass.

Ok so have a Dell Inspiron laptop that is running on Windows XP and I am unable to connect to the internet. This happened a little over a week ago suddenly and everything that I have tried has been unsuccessful. I connect to the internet through an ethernet cable that plugs directly from the wall to my computer, however I cannot get internet because my computer is telling me that a "Network Cable is Unplugged" when it clearly is still plugged in. I have tried using different cables and in different rooms of my apartment, and yet I still have the same problem. My other roommates are not having any issues so this lead me to believe there is probably a problem with my computer. My computer skills are on a basic general knowledge basis so I have no idea how to begin to attack this problem. Strangely enough, in my attempts to get on the internet, I turned on my wireless connection which displays a full connection in the icon at the bottom of my screen at good or excellent quality, yet when I open firefox or explorer (the browsers I use) I still have no internet. I am not sure if this is an indicator of the same problem I am having or just a separate issues, but I am in desperate need of help. So please if you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate them.

I ran two Linux distrobutions on my computer (KateOS [didn't work, monitor didn't like something] and Ubuntu) I didn't install anything I was just having a look to see if I could make a partition smaller with it so I could then install one of the Linux OS's.

Anyway, my problem is that now I have stopped using the Live CD's and have gone back onto windows, it is saying that the Network Cable is Unplugged or some other message to that effect. I have done several things to try to get it working, but nothing has.

Here is what I have done so far:
I restarted the computer several times
I reinstalled the drivers of the Ethernet socket thingy. (It's built into the motherboard)
I did a system restore and then un-restored it after that didn't work
I disabled the Ethernet socket thingy in device manager and then enabled it again
I unplugged the router from the power and plugged it back in again
I unplugged the ethernet cables at both ends and reconnected

That's all I can remember doing at the moment, but I may have done one or two things extra to these. The only thing I can think of doing extra to this would be reformatting the harddrive and reinstalling windows, which I'd rather not do.

Hello, I'm currently experiencing a new problem with a customers machine. Its Local Area Connection under network connections flips between the 'enabled' state and 'Network Cable Unplugged' I've went through the line and confirmed its plugged in and the ports lights are blinking properly.

I'm unsure whats causing the problem, but have a feeling its either a windows networking service or the driver. I'm tending to lean toward driver since it connected fine yesterday and downloaded 800MB of updates. I have tried re-installing the same driver that i used yesterday to get it on the internet, with no success.

Device manager says there's nothing wrong with the Ethernet driver, but it does list another ethernet controller, although I'm pretty sure that it is the wifi device, which I haven't been able to get its driver to work either. The computers model is an "HP Pavilion DV7-1245DX" it is running a fresh install of Vista Home Premium 64bit.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
 

A:Network Connect flips between 'enabled' and 'Network Cable Unplugged'

Have you tried manually setting the port duplex/speed?

For this to work you need to be able to specify the speed/duplex on both ends of the connection (i.e. at the switch as well as the machine).

Hi,

I've often come across this forum in my Google searches when looking for advice to computer issues so it's only natural I finally join and directly post an issue I'm dealing with now.

Here's my setup:
Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop running off power adapter
WinXP SP2
512mb RAM
20gb Hard Drive 14gb free
Hardwired to Actiontec Modem Router on Verizon FIOS
Network Adapter: Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller

PROBLEM
When I start the computer, the computer icon blinks: A network cable is unplugged
If I run the Broadcom Advanced Control Suite/Diagnostics Test that usually results in it being able to connect.
I also sometimes - but not always - get Generic Host Process for Win32 Services error when I boot up: Generic Host Process for Win32 services has encountered a problem and needs to close.
Under details for this error I see this:
Error Signature
szAppName: svchost.exe szAppVer: 5.1.2600.2180 szModName: ntdll.dll
zsModVer: 5.1.2600.3520 offset: 00018af2

The cables, modem, connection are all good and work with other computers fine. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the Network Adapter driver. The computer is clean of any viruses and spyware as far as I know. I do have Avira Anti-virus and Windows Firewall.

In searching on this error, I've come across alot of people with a similar issue, but no real solutions.

Thanks for any help on this.

Hello everyone!

I re-installed Windows 8 yesterday evening (thought it would be quicker than to cleanup and fix my old install) and then directly upgraded it to Windows 8.1. The problem I am experiencing is quite weird: The Operating System doesn't detect the network cable.

It is quite similar to THIS thread, but I didn't want to revive a thread that was nearly 1 year old.

With that being said, do not jump straight to the "Did you turn it on and off again" questions. Here is what I have done so far:
Hardware-Side:

Cross-check the cable with another computer --> Working fineCross-check the wall plug with another computer --> Working fineTest the connection with the BIOS's connection diagnostic utility --> Link detected
Software-Side:
Checking if Windows was up to date --> Nothing to updateUpdating the motherboard's BIOS --> Not betterUpdating the LAN's drivers with the ones I found on the manufacturer's website --> Not better

So here I am, wondering what is wrong with my installation. It was working A1 a few days ago, except for the issues I re-installed the operating system for.

I have joined to this post an IPCONFIG /all diagnostic. Maybe it can help.

Thanks a bunch for any insights on how to solve that issue! Also, don't hesitate to go hardcore technical. I can take it.

P.S.: Full system Specs are in my profile and in the link at the bottom of the post

This is a desktop and is connected to the router by wire not wirelessly. I bought a router yesterday and I followed every step in the manual exactly.

Then I went to my Network and Sharing Center and I pressed something either the one with the computer name and the line connecting to the internet globe or in view your active networks section. When I pressed that, all of a sudden there was an "X" on the line connecting to the globe. I called Comcast to see if they can help me and the lady told me she cannot find my network adapter.So I went to my other desktop which is also connected to the internet by wire and she found that computer's network adapter. I checked everything, checking if the ethernet cord is all the way in and make sure its connected, still it says network cable is unplugged even though the ethernet cable is plugged in all the way. I reinstalled my network adapter and still it cannot connect to the internet. Please tell me what I'm doing wrong and any way to fix it? Thank You

Hi,

Firstly I'm sorry if this isn't in the right place - I'm rubbish when it comes to sub-boards and picking the right one. Also, I know there's been plenty of posts on this in the first place, but I've not found myself an answer that's helped.

Basically, a few days ago my internet stopped working on a wired connection. The 'ports' where you connect the computer to the modem aren't lit up like they usually are, but the lights on the front of the modem are all green and the wireless connection is still working for the laptop that I'm posting this from - so it's not an internet fault, it's something to do with the pc.

I've tried using all four different ports on the back of the modem, and tried using a different wire but nothing has worked so far.

I'd appreciate any ideas or suggestions, and please try to excuse me being a little on the unknowing side - lingo isn't really my forte so if you can put it in simple terms, please do!

Thanks in advance.

Hey,

I recently installed a new Nvidea GT 9500 graphics card on my sole PCI express port. To do this, I had to remove a firewire controller card that I never used. Besides that, I did nothing else to the computer. Upon reboot, however, I immediately encountered the fact that I could no longer connect to the internet because "a network cable is unplugged." Even after installing new drivers and uninstalling old ones, I still have this problem. The odd thing is that I can connect to the internet for the first 15 second after logging on, enough time to load my homepage on firefox. After that, the network cable becomes "unplugged." Here are the steps I have taken to try to solve this issue.

1. I have thoroughly checked the modem and router for any issues. There are none. The internet works fine from all other computers.
2. I have checked in the device manager for any driver issues. The Intel Network adapter is working absolutely fine, and there are no yellow exclamation marks.
3. I have rebooted multiple times.
4. I have unplugged the router and modem and replugged them in, resetting them.

Please, can anyone help me?

Edit: Also, the light by the ethernet port is solid orange/amber.

Welcome to TSF!

Are you on a Dial-up connection?
A computer with a red X through it next to your clock?
If you're on Dial-up you can disable that because it's for LAN or High-Speed Internet.
Go to Control Panel/Network Connections/right click on Local Area Connection>Disable.
That should get rid of it, but only do that if you have a Dial-up connection!

Network Cable Unplugged? No Internet Connection
Greetings everyone,

Just the other day, I began to experience a problem with my Internet connection. On one of my PCs, in the notification area, an icon consisting of two monitors with a red "X" appeared with the message: "Local Area Connection: A network cable is unplugged." However, the cable is not unplugged. My other PC and laptop (which is wireless) can connect to the Internet, so I know it's not my ISP or my router.

First, I thought it may be the cable, so I replaced it with another cable I had. No luck.

Then I thought it may be the port on the router, so I plugged it into one of the other ports (including the port that the working PC was plugged into). Still no luck.

Next, I checked Device Manager > Network Adapters > Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection. There is no exclamation point next to it. Plus, under Properties, it indicates that this device is working properly.

I shut down all my computers, and unplugged the dsl modem and router. I waited a few minutes and then plugged in the modem, followed by the router. Once both of those were fully booted, I turned my computers back on. Still, no connection for the problem PC.

I went back into Device Manager and uninstalled the network adapter. Following this, I went to Add Hardware. The PC found the new hardware and installed it successfully. However, immediately upon reinstalling the hardware components, the unplugged netw... Read more

A:Network cable is unplugged.

New or not, I still vote for a faulty NIC. I had one customer recently who had a new computer and he bought a cable from me and complained that it was faulty having had the same symptoms that you are having. Long story short: it seemed that the female RJ45 jack on the NIC card was faulty (probably a cold solder joint, but that is just a guess.) He replaced the card and, magically, my cable started working for him.

My PC's internet (plugged into a router) is working fine before but suddenly, it stopped working and it shows the message Network Cable Unplugged. I tried changing the ports in the router, but still it doesn't work. I plugged in the cable to my laptop and the cable works fine. I am wondering what is causing this problem. Thanks in advance for your help :)

Hello,

i've decided to try out windows 7 64bit. after fresh clean install i had an issue with drivers for my integrated network card, which i installed from CD i received when i've bought MB, which is ASUS P5B Deluxe with following network devices :
Marvell 88E8056 PCIe 1x 1 Gbit/s LAN
Marvell 88E8001 PCI 1x 1 Gbit/s LAN.

now i have 2 network devices displayed in device manager which appear to be working properly :
marvell yukon 88e8001/8003/8010 pci gigabit ethernet controller
marvell yukon 88e8056 pci-e ethnernet controller

and then 3 "other devices" left with yellow exclamation mark :
ethernet controller
rtl8187_wireless (i've disabled this one since i don't need wireless)
unknow device

i also have tried to install newest drivers from marvell homepage, but nothing has changed. i've also tried to setup speed on both network devices from auto to 100mb full and half duplex, but i'm still getting cable unplugged message.
i didn't play with router so far. my network was working with XP32bit without problems.

i have a feeling, this problem will disappear with 32bit release, but i'd rather try the 64bit one. is there anything i can possibly do to get rid off this problem?

LE: i've also tried to go directly with my internet cable without router, but the result is the same.

OK, after goin around many sites and looking at many "solutions" I can't find one.
Basically, I'm tryin to set up a PS3 to my laptop to get shared connection through my Mobile Broadband Dongle.

I know how to do it, as I've done it before, and the connection says its shared beside my ISP..

The Ethernet Cable is connected to both PS3 and Laptop, but it says on my laptop "Network cable unplugged" and has a red x beside it. Also on the playstation side of things, it says "connect ethernet cable".

I know it works as I had an xbox hooked up this way not so long ago.
Question is, why won't it see the cable this time?

I've tried 4 cables, so it cant be the cables..

???!!

A:Please Help!! Network Cable Unplugged?!

Hi DannyBoi3k,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

First, check the following article to see if it helps: How to Use Wireless Broadband (Dongle) on a Ps3 | Computersight.

********************************************************

If that doesn't work, try the following You Tube video showing how to setup the connection:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDAcmrOVTdk

*********************************************************

If that doesn't work, try the attached PDF file at the end of this post to see if it helps.

*********************************************************

If that still doesn't work, you have to run the internet off of your computer and plug an ethernet cable into your ps3 from your computer then go to your connection on your computer (Vista: Control panel > network and sharing center > manage network connections) right click > properties > sharing, and select allow other users to connect through this computers internet connection.

Then on the ps3 go to settings and change the connection to wired connection and set it up from there.

*******************************************************

If that doesn't work, open your Network Connections. You will see the 3 modem, ignore this for now. Further down you will see 2 ethernet connections, Local area connection, and 1394 connection. Right click on Local Area Connection and Bridge the connection. Then open the properties of your 3 modem and under Advanced click on internet connection sharing. Instal... Read more

I'm working on a computer running XP. Network card Broadcom 440x 10/100 integrated controller

I'm getting an error message that says network cable unplugged.

There is no problem with it in the device manager. In network connections, you can disable and enable without a problem.

I tried different cables and hooking up directly to the ethernet cable to the modem.

I tried installing an update to the driver.
And I tried this from the Microsoft website:

In Properties of the Local Network, clicked on the General tab, clicked on Configure for the Broadcom controller.
"In the resulting dialog box, clicked the Advanced tab.
In the Property list, click Media Type or Link Speed & Duplex or something similar.
Note If these properties do not appear, look for a property that has the values Duplex and Half-Duplex.
Click a specific bandwidth in the Value list, and then click OK.
Close the Network Connections dialog box.
Test the network connection.
If these steps do not resolve the issue, repeat steps 1 through 5, and then click a different value in step 6 until you have tested all values. "

Each time I chnaged the values of these, a balloon would appear by the local network icon with the message "Network cable unplugged"

But it didn't work.

So, I know that the computer detects it but for some reason can't "plug" it in.

I've read on other websites that the microsoft suggestion was successful for some. For others they... Read more

Hi,

I realise many people are having this issue and there any lots of threads about it all, which i have spent hours looking through forums for answers but I am not that computer savy to understand it all...Haven't really come accross the same scenerio as i am having, so here it is:

Just brought a Sony Vaio Laptop running Win 7 home Premium. Have a desktop computer running xp which is connected to modem and router...Am running a D-link DSL-502T and Linksys wireless-G broadband Router, model :WRT54G.

My issue is i can connect to the wireless network through the laptop but when i switch the wireless switch on the laptop every few minutes the desktop PC will drop the connection and display network cable unplugged, then goes back and fourth connecting and disconnecting every few minutes....as soon as i flick wireless switch off on laptop all is fine again.....wireless works as have another laptop running windows 7 pro and can connect mobile phone through wireless and ipad etc...I have had the internet load web pages but connection doesnt stay on...Does the same thing when i try connecting directly using network cable.

May be some easy answer? I honestly do not no where to begin. Thanks.

I've just got a new desktop comp HP 3150 (vista) with built in Intel(R) PRO/100ve Network connection. I've tried to set it up with my old comp (486 series XP(SP2)/originally ME) with Realtek 10/100 NIC card seated in PCI slot using crossover cable(s)

Both comps are showing the network icon (with red x) in the sys tray and bubble message "Network cable unplugged".

Having trawled many forums such as these i have come across many 'solutions' and used them all in varying combnations, including:


Installed as per instructions
Re-installed
Reseated card
Tried alternative PCI slots & cables
Tried to update driver (file on setup sotware is 2004 but there's no on-line support/update function for the NIC, so just finds it on the setup disc or in temp files on PC - so downloaded latest direct from RealTek - still nothing.)
Changed settings from "autodetect/negotiation" to "100 fullplex & half, 10 full & half"
Troubleshot both cards ("working properly")
Installed LLTD protocol on XP comp (although i think this is irrelevant at this stage if either comp thinks there's no connection - same with network set up wizards, which i did anyway.)
But no luck so far.

Any ideas?

I'm hoping to avoid the "get a router etc and go wireless" answer (unless there's no alternative) and I'm given the impression that a hub set up isn't necessary with two comps.

I would think the "cable unplugged" messages is about the wired network adapter. Or do you have a cable attached to that?
