Ethernet cable when im not working off of one.....

Q: Ethernet cable when im not working off of one.....

I recently got my computer "fixed" but when i try to plug it in to connect to the internet there is an error code that reads "Plug an ethernet cable into this computer"

It currently detects:
Atheros AR8131 PCO-E gigabit ethernet controller

I dont run off of an ethernet cable, i have installed:
Netgear Rangemax Wireless PCI adapter WPN311, which seems to be working.

My computer wont detect my wireless adapter or the wireless router that i have in my home. It will only detect the fact that my ethernet cord is not plugged in.

I have tried to uninstall the ethernet cord 3 times and nothing....... What do i need to do?

I"m a newbie here, so please lead me in simple terms(I dont know anything about tcip/ip, nic, etc etc).

My computer has always been fine connecting to the internet via regular ethernet cable. Due to a recent storm which fried my cable modem, my cable company came to replace my modem with a scientific Atlanta modem.

This time, the internet would not work with the ethernet cable. no connection at all. So instead of the ethernet, he just plugged a USB and it worked fine.

Anyone know how to get the ethernet 'jack' to work back up? Is it some settings on the desktop? I'm in the process of pulling my old wireless router and installing it, so my laptop can be wireless freely. However, my router only has ethernet ports.

I also want to add that if I plug the modem to my laptop via etherent cable, it works fine.
someone please lead me step by step on what and how to troubleshoot. I'm not network savvy at all.

thanks

A:ethernet cable not working!

would you post an ipconfig /all - from both PCs - make sure we know which is the working one

------------------------------------------------------------------------
{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 here
-> Start
-> (XP - enter the following in the RUN box)
cmd /k ipconfig /all
-> (Vista or Windows 7 - enter the following in the Search box)
cmd /k ipconfig /all

A black box will appear on the screen -
rightclick in the box

Hi. I really have a problem with my internet. I have 1 short and 1 long ethernet cables. I know both of them are working well bec ive been using it for months. Right now im using the longer cable, bec my pc is in my bedroom and the router is at the living room. Earlier this morning i got no internet connection. I check the cables and everything until i found out that the light of the ethernet cable is no longer present. I have already tried everything like transfering ports, switching ends but its still not working. So i decided to transfer my pc to the living room so i could try the shorter cable and its just the same. No light on the ethernet and I stil dont have a connection. I dont know what is the problem here. I really need help.

Hello joncat93,

Have you looked in Device Manager to see if there is a yellow ! or red X against the modem/network adaptors.

Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a notebook or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if a brand name, provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post the brand and model name or number for the motherboard.

I live in an apartment where the building has wifi for us to use. There are 16 apartments in the building. The thing is anyone that uses the internet, they use the wifi. I'm the only one here who bought a very long ethernet cable so that i connected the ethernet cable to one of the routers. There are 2 routers.

I have a laptop.

Most people in the building have problems with the wifi and when i connect wifi, it usually isn't that good. There are 2 connections. One is wifi connection A and other is B. Connection B is never reliable... either you can't connect or if it connects, it isn't good. However I'm wired to the router in connection B via ethernet. So everytime i open laptop, its on wifi but i then disconnect it then i see a computer in the bottom right of my computer screen which means its wired connection and thus very reliable and fast. My ethernet cable is 50 feet.

I been using the wired connection for many months now with no issue. Today, i cannot connect to the internet wired. I disconnected it from the wifi connection but then it shows no connection, doesn't have the computer logo at all.

I then went to google and check and typed cmd and says Media disconnected. Does anyone know if theres a way to see if it suddenly stopped working or it might be the router/modem? I clicked diagnose and it didn't do anything.

The frustrating thing about this is i need wired internet and i dont know why it just suddenly stopped working.

I'm having a lot of trouble trying to connect my laptop via ethernet cable. My computer picks up my WiFi just fine, but I can't seem to get anywhere with a cable and I have to have a wired connection for a new job (remote, working from home 100% and I have to be able to run their video conferencing software). I've watched a ton of YouTube videos, tried dozens of fixes that I found on Google, updated all drivers, but nothing has worked yet.

I called AT&T and they were able to access my modem remotely and they verified that the connection was fine on their end. My PS4 and Xbox One X are connected through the same modem and they're working with no problems. They said that it must be an issue with settings in my computer, but I don't really know where to start. I've never attempted to connect my laptop before, just always used wireless. My other devices (tablets, phones, printer, second laptop) are all wireless, too.

Here's what I'm working with: Dell laptop running WIndows 10 Home, AT&T DSL connection via Cat6e cable with modem/router AT&T Pace model 4111N.

I was afraid that a faulty ethernet cable might be to blame, so I went out and bought a new one (the Cat6e that I'm using now), but that didn't work. I unplugged the Xbox and used that cord with my laptop and that didn't work, either.

I ran about a 50ft ethernet cable today. The intent was to have the cable run from my cable modem to a wireless router. However, when I connected the router, it wouldn't connect. When I connect one end of the cable to the router and the other end to a computer, everything works fine. I've confirmed it be working on two computers. I've also tried two different router, neither of which were able to establish a connections. I've double and triple checked the connectors and they're both right. Both routers work when connected to the modem with a shorter cable. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Hello!
I'm having problems with my Asus NV56VM laptop (windows 8). Whenever I try to use an ethernet cable to access internet I either get a SSL-error, the website doesn't load at all or it loads VERY slowly and not the whole website (it says that I have internet acces and that it's not limited). Wireless works fine though.
I've also tested playing some games (ex Call of duty) and it works fine for like five minutes and then I get an error message saying something about packages didn't receive correctly. So I'm guessing it have to do with not all information is transfered when I use ethernet.
According to the Device Manager I use "Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30)" and the drivers is up to date.

Things I've tried:
Using a different ethernet cableTesting it on a different network (at my friends house)Reinstalling drivers (both from Asus website and from Qualcomm's)Disable wirelessEmpty cache/cookiesRestarting computer/router/modemTurning off firewallSearching for virus (didn't find any)Ipconfig /release /renewTested it on different browsers (I also affects games though)Formating my laptopSSL and TSL is enable

I'm not that great with computers so sorry if I'm not so clear with everything and if there is something I've missed please let me know.

Would appriciate some help on this!

A:Internet not working with ethernet cable (Atheros AR8161)

This looks like a physical issue with your connector not picking up all 8 pins on the head rather than a setting problem since you have completed most troubleshooting techniques. If this is the case you may have to invest into another internal or external ethernet adapter.

Could you please complete the following command in command prompt and after 1-2 minutes terminate it with the following keys CTRL+C. Once done please post back your results


Code:
ping www.google.com -t



   Note
The command needs to be typed exactly as seen above including any spaces. Feel free to copy and paste if it is easier

Hi there,

The laptop I have is an asus P550C, windows 7.

This laptop came pre-installed with Mcafee Antivirus protection for a limited amount of time. Wifi was working perfectly fine although there were occasions where the connection would disconnect by itself. After the free-trial ended, I did not want to buy the packaged they were advertising so I went to my Control Panel and uninstalled Mcafee. This was when the problem started to occur. The internet access icon had a red x and when I went to diagnose the problem, it said that I needed to connect via an ethernet cable. Since then, I have connected it with an ethernet and internet works and I have also installed AVG's free antivirus software.

I have tried to
type: ipconfig /flushdns
type: nbtstat -R
type: netsh int reset all
type: netsh int ip reset
type: netsh winsock reset

But I still cannot connect via wifi. Please help

Hi,

A week ago, my computer suddenly could not connect to the internet. I was using a cable directly connected to the cable modem.

Since then, I've tried:

1) Added a WiFi router connected to the cable modem. Tried using the WiFi card built in to the computer. It connects but reports "limited access", and there is no connection to the internet, and I can't access the router itself.

2) Bought a new Ethernet card, installed the drivers that came with it. I've tried it connected through the WiFi router's hard ports and directly to the modem. Hard resets (power cycling off 2 minutes) on the modem each time and still no connection.

3) In device manager, both Ethernet cards show as "working normally" with no errors. So does the WiFi card.

4) ipconfig shows only "tunneling" devices with media disconnected.

5) I've uninstalled and re-installed the drivers for the on-baord Ethernet, the WiFi card, and the new Ethernet card.

After reading some other posts, I captured the output from ipconfig and several netsh commands. I've attached them to this post. The files starting with netsh are basically the command entered with underscores replacing the spaces from the commands used to generate them.

I also borrowed another computer. It connects both directly through the cable modem, and using the Ethernet ports on the router. It doesn't have WiFi, so I couldn't test that method of access. It can also connect to and c... Read more

I have a cable modem attached to a network (router, cascaded to other routers - different vendors routers but it works / to attach 10 computers). The PCs use a lot of data/bandwith part of the day and works well, generally, but the cable modem sometimes has outages and its important we get network working again. We have no IT support. So thank you in advance for any direction you can provide.

I also have a DSL line/router that is not attached to anything (except it provides wireless).

Question: Can I just swing the cable from the cable modem over to the DSL router and expect internet to work?

I tried it one day and it worked, but we had very limited usage.

I tried it another time when the cable modem/internet failed - and it didn't seem to work. The usage was much higher so I don't know if the amount of data or the required "handshake" would take longer. or what...can you advise. This is just vanilla internet connection. No VPN or such. The applications can be shut down and reopened. But we would rather not have to reboot the PCs.

Second question would be: if I have both DSL and Cable Modem sitting next to each other - can I attach both so they can both be used and provide back up.

The pc ethernet port has worked 100% up to this point. I'll just tell you what happened, Somehow, the tip of the speaker connection managed to get stuck in the green port.

After reading about what to do online, i opened up the pc and managed to open the back of the sound ports and push out the tip with a paperclip. But when I started up the pc again the ethernet cable wasent being dectected.

I've tried the cable out with the laptop and it works 100%, i've also tried a different cable into the pc and that isint being detected either (works 100% with laptop).

The drivers should be upto date. I had to remove the power supply cables from the inside of the computer to get at the sound ports , maybe i didnt put them back right? What cable controls the ethernet port?

I'm a bit lost, the lights on the lan port dont light up either.

Any ideas?

Josh, welcome to the forum. When requesting help you should always include the make/model (i.e. p6-xxxx) of the computer and/or monitor. This information is necessary for us to review the specifications of them. If I understand your problem correctly, your Ethernet cable broke off in the port on your router.  Is this correct?  Does it still have the clip on the cable or is this what broke?  If you could attach a picture it would be helpful.

My grandson has received his new desktop with Windows 7 Premium 64-bit. He wants to connect it to a modem/router that already is connected to his dad's desktop (there are open ethernet plugs in back of the modem/router.
He would use his Windows 7 computer when his father was not using his Win XP computer. They have DSL connection with 1000/380, I believe.
Our question is, what type of ethernet cable should he use. We were just going to Radio Shack and buying an ethernet cable, but someone told us there are different kinds of ethernet cables. Someone else told us it doesn't matter what ethernet cable you buy as they are all the same.
Can anyone help? What type (model #. etc.) of ethernet cable should we buy?

A:which ethernet cable do i need

You'll want a Cat5 or Cat5e cable with RJ45 connectors. It's a very common cable and available in several lengths and colors. You can get one just about anywhere these days, even places like Wal-Mart and many drug stores.

I have a Dell laptop and use Windows Vista. I had to re-install the OS after it crashed and ever since I did this the laptop will not recognize the ethernet cable. The portal lights up when I plug it in but it never connects to the internet. I can access the internet fine with a wireless connection. Do I need to download a certain driver? I know the problem isn't with the cable or modem as I am using it right now on my work laptop. Please help. Thanks.
 

A:Ethernet Cable

Probably need to download the LAN driver
for your model from dell website support section.

I have plugged my Ethernet cable into the corresponding spots on my laptop, and my modem/router and I can move around on the internet. But when I try to click on steam, it says I'm not connected to the internet. From there I clicked diagnose on the ethernet connection and it said that the connection between access point router, or cable modem and internet is broken. I've tried resetting my modem, and the problem still continues. My laptop runs Windows 7.

I need to run an ethernet cable from my TV to my router. There are a lot of cables available with RJ-45 plugs, but I have very little room around the jack in my TV, and most of the available plugs have a stiff collar that sticks out about an inch from the panel. That won't do.

Can anyone recommend a cable that doesn't stick out so far?

I am very new to this forum, but looking on Google this seems to be the best site. I have an ethernet cable located in my room, which runs from the router downstairs. It is used for both my xBox 360 and my PC, you know like sharing it.
But tonight, when I was changing the cable from my PC to put it in my 360, there was a sickening crack, the clip has fallen off, and one of the pins has been covered by a piece of plastic from itself.
This is where I need the help, whats the better option, getting rid of it altogether and going for wireless, or is there a way in which you can take off that RJ45 connector, and connect another one by yourself.
You have no idead how helpful you guys will be if you manage to help me here.
THanks

I need to replace the Ethernet cable that goes from the Actiontec PK5000 modem/router to my second computer across the room. It's about 10-12 feet long and colored blue. Are these cables pretty much interchangable and change much, since this one has been in use for 4-5 years?
Thanks for you help, hope this is the right forum.

Yes, the cables are interchangable.
The Cat6 RJ-45 cable life depends on where it is installed.

Hey everyone,

Since I'm on a campus, I'd like to download shit with a real nice speed, but the only problem is, when I connect my ehternet cable, it won't connect or something. If I go to the adapter settings, it says that the wireless network connection is fine, but the local area connection has no network cable (but in fact it is plugged in in the right way etc.)... So, I don't know if I need to update my drivers? And if yes, I don't really know how, so I hope anyone can help me...

If I need to post any screenshots or anything, let me know..

(Oh maybe an additional 'problem' , when I go to cmd and type ipconfig /all, I keep getting those messages "media disconnected" don't know if that's a problem or anything? maybe there's a simple solution )

Thanks in advance!!

A:Ethernet cable not detected!!

1 Have you tried the Wire in another computer.
2 Is your Lan Disabled. Goto start and type view network, select "view network Connections"
3 Has it worked before.

hi.
i have a Windows xp PC and a Laptop. I want to connect them so that i can see all the files and folders

of one on other. Now,
1. below are pics of my modem and my cable. please tell me what type of modem is it. ADSL or xDSL and

the cable is connector cable or Ethernet cable or crossover cable.





2. using the cable shown, joined it from PC to My Windows Vista Laptop and ran a preinstalled program

is Vista to connect computers. This program succesfully connected the pcs, it transfered files but Main

problem with this is this program shows the contents of Host (PC which is OLD PC)'s contents only and

offers them to be transferred. But i want sharing like i see in my college PCs, through network

neighbourhood, i saw all pcs and just double clicked on any system and whoa! i saw all its partitions.

[NOTE: USING ubuntu Live CD on one laptop i was able to "see" the other xp pc's partitons and printers,

but when clicked on them it asked me username and password. I didnt know what these were, and even on

giving xp's useraccounts and passwords the user and password dialog continued popping up. I couldnt see

anything beyond partitions hence.]

3. Now tell me how can i do same thing with both XP systems. I have joined this cable (see picture 3)

pc to pc. But now what! can anybody tell me how to proceed and start sharing files as explained in 2.

4. Any third party softwares who can do this work efficently are welcome.... Read more

Hi,
Recently I factory reset my windows 8 meta box, but in the reset it also got rid of all my drives, so I went to the meta box website and got all the drivers again, but when I try to connect to my wireless internet, nothing pops up, so I press trouble shoot then it says that I need a Ethernet cable to connect to the internet, and it won't let me change to wireless.
P.S. The windows I am on is windows 8 pro build 9200

Thank you.

Typical conflict; Need to use Either wired OR wifi but not both.
Disable the wired nic and then try to get a wifi connection - - be sure to enable the slide switch (usually on laptops).
