ethernet not working on windows xp sp2!!

Q: ethernet not working on windows xp sp2!!

Ok so I have had my windows xp sp2 for a long time but recently got a bad virus. I fixed the virus but now can?t connect to the net. I'm am connected through Ethernet and when I click L.A.N status it says connected with 100.00 mpbs but when I click internet it says cannot display page no internet yada yada. I no the Ethernet it working because it works on my other computer though. I think it might be because it says my ip address is 0.0.0.0 but what ever I do I can?t renew it like it tells me to. I have no idea what to do but when I click ipconfig /all this is what I get. If anyone has any idea on what?s wrong or any suggestions don?t hesitate to help me by responding

Preferred Solution: ethernet not working on windows xp sp2!!

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.)

I have upgraded from Windows 7 (64-bit OS) to Windows 10 (64-bit OS) on my HP ProLiant Microserver N32L.

The network adapter is not picking-up the Ethernet cable running to my router and as a result I do not have any network connectivity. I have uninstalled all the Anti-virus software, uninstalled the drivers and downloaded the latest drivers for the network adapter, motherboard and all other devices using a Driver Toolkit. Still no joy.

I am able to connect using a mobile 3G USB device, but this is not the issue. I use the PC as a mass storage device on my home network and need to get this connected via Ethernet to the router.

The network adapter is Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet adapter.

Any ideas how to get this resolved.

PS: I have read most posts online and have tried all the tips and tricks to work around this.

Hey guys, I'm a pretty advanced computer user but I've run into problems, here's my quick story

I had an old computer so I put Ubuntu 7 on it, well yesterday I decided it was finally time to upgrade to Ubuntu 8, which turned out to be a disaster because the graphics card doesn't work very well with Ubuntu 8. So I decided to bite the bullet and install Windows XP SP2 on it. The computer is connected to the internet through an ethernet port hooked up to a router. However Windows CAN NOT realize that there is an internet connection and will not set up the Local Area Connection like it normally does. Now does this mean that I need to get drivers for my motherboard and stuff like that? Since I don't have internet on my windows machine, I'll have to download them to this computer, transfer them by means of Flash Drive, correct?

Also, how would I be able to find out what drivers I need? Any help is much appreciated! Thanks!

Hello, I am having a really odd problem, I use my job's work VPN to connect to their server and from there I remote desktop into my computer at work. Everything works fine with my Windows 8.1 laptop, I connect to the VPN, then am able to access my station via remote desktop. With Windows 10 I am not able to....with an ethernet connection...it works fine when I connect to my wifi here and do it that way. Otherwise I can connect to the VPN but can't connect to my desktop there remotely with Windows 10 (I have two computers that have Windows 10 that i tested this on), it is only happening with an ethernet internet connection.

I am also able to ping the station fine with the wifi connection, but cannot ping it with the ethernet. I've tried deactivating my firewalls with no success. I am really stumped as to what is going on since things work fine with Windows 8.1's ethernet and wifi connection.

Thank you!

Hi guys, this is my first post so let me know if I missed anything or need to include more descriptions about my computer/problem.

After the last windows update my wired internet stopped working. I tried right clicking in the device manager to update the drivers when connected to WiFi which tells me that I have the most updated driver. I also tried manually downloading the Drivers and installing them but still have the same problem.

When I look in device manager it gives me the message. "This device cannot start. (Code 10)."

Hi,

I have a linksys model wrt54gl v1.1 and I am using Windows Vista 32bit Home Edition. I have a pc connected to the router directly through an ethernet plus a laptop, 2 iphones and a blackberry that get wireless internet from it. 2 days ago wireless stopped working. The internet on the pc connected to the router by ethernet is still working and the power, WLAN, ethernet, and internet lights are all lit green. The internet and ethernet lights flash when data is being transferred but the the WLAN light is not flashing. I have restored the router to factory default but it is still not working. The phones and laptop are not detecting any wireless network present. Hope you can help.

My wireless is not working. I have tried looking at comments on line but nothing seems to work!
If I use the CMD code I get this for the ether net:
ipv4: 94.205.214.13
subnet: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 94.205.214.1

I have a sitecom router if that helps at all? It says to go to 192.168.0.1 which I have done but sdtill confused!Thanks in advance
 

A:Wireless not working, ethernet is working

All the above looks good. Using 192.168.0.1 as a URL in your browser, you should get a request for the user/password for that router. Once you login, you can go to the WiFi portion, enable it, set the SSID and encryption you desire.

Where do you get stuck?

Vista Ultimate 64-bit, ASUS Rampage Formula motherboard, USB mouse and keyboard connected in back ports.

Two things happened: Avira antivirus warned me of some threats which I either ignored or deleted. Windows Update had some updates ready (although I'm not sure if it updated).

I turned off my PC for a couple of hours, turned it back on and realized that my USB keyboard was not working on the password screen.

I eventually unplugged it from the back and plugged it into the front, where it worked. However, my USB mouse did not work when plugged into the second front port, nor did it work when plugged into the front port in which the keyboard worked.

I accessed System Restore using my keyboard and restored to one day previously. When it finished, both keyboard and mouse worked, although I got a pop-up message alerting me that the "drivers for your device could not be installed." When I clicked "OK," the mouse stopped working again.

I have checked BIOS and both mouse and keyboard are recognized, so it does not appear to be a hardware issue.

Hi there!

I have no experience at all with computers/connection issues, so apologies for my poor use of terminology.

I live in the Bay Area and I have xfinity/Comcast.

Around a week ago, I stopped being able to connect to Ethernet. After troubleshooting, I found that the error was "One or more network protocols are missing" or "Windows Sockets Empty".

I have already tried the following things:
1. Reset my computer / made sure all the cords were plugged in
2. Did a "netsh" in command prompt to reset my IP
3. Gave "Full Control" to everyone in folder 26 in my Registry Editor
4. Did a "netsh" to reset my winsocks
5. Disabled NETBIOS on both wifi/ethernet

I also couldn't find any new drivers...

Each time I tried one of these fixes, I would have ethernet for ~5 minutes after I restarted my computer. Afterwards, it would instantly disconnect me and connect me back to WiFi.
After I tried disabling WiFi, my ethernet connection would still dc, but I would simply have to troubleshoot it, and would work again after restarting my adapter.

Is there any way for me to fix problem for good? My WiFi cuts off really randomly from time to time and that's really frustrating..

If there's anything I missed please let me know and I'll try to provide it!

Thank you so much!

The link that shows up on your post - "I also couldn't find any new drivers..." - If you posted that intentionally, do not use the 'driver updater' program it links to. It's malware. My question would be who is the oem of your computer, and which LAN card make/model?

My ethernet is not working but my wifi on the same computer is working(using wifi to post this). I attached an image of my resource monitor it shows me trying to download. The weird part is sometimes it goes up to my normal speed(32mb/s) for like 4 seconds and then it drops to not working at all and when I try to load a website I have to refresh a few times and pray.

I tried connecting the wire to my laptop (same wire and wall port) and it works fine. I ran malwarebytes and found one threat but the problem was not solved. I ran it again a few more time and it says I don't have anything else.

I have no idea what's (kinda computer noob) going on so any help would help.

Hello, i have a desktop computer which used to get internet from a secondary router we had. It is a Jensen Scandinavia. One day when i logged onto my computer i noticed i had no internet, and it hasnt returned since that. It shows a yellow exclamition point by the internet icon, and says no internet Access. My secondary router Works fine With everything else than my computer, both wifi and Ethernet. Of all Electronics we have in the house, its only my computer who doesnt work. I have a cable that goes from my main router and to the secondary router, if i stretch that into my room it will allow me to get internet Access, so the problem isnt my main router. My Ethernet port on the computer is blinking green some times aswell, but i get no firm Connection. I also do not have a default Gateway.

Additional info: when my internet stopped working, i looked into my Device manager and found pseudo tunneling Interface With a yellow exclamition mark. I uninstalled it in hope that it would be reinstalled and making my computer work aagain, but it didnt get reinstalled ;(

Ty for the help, much appreciated.

A:Ethernet not working!

The Pseudo Tunneling Interface is for IPv6, which is not used currently for Internet Access. When you right click this yellow flag and Uninstall it , it should not come back.
If you have no other yellow flags in the Device Manager, then to test your internet connection, plug this computer directly into the Main Router rather then the secondary one.
Then follow these instructions Pre-posting Requirements - for both Wired and Wireless Connectivity Issues and paste your ipconfig log in your next post.

My ethernet cable connects to an RJ45 port, where there is a cable running underneath the carpet to the router.

My ISP troubleshooting help line could not tell me anything beyond it being an ethernet problem.

Any help troubleshooting and re-establishing is much appreciated.
 

A:Ethernet not working...

"... ethernet connection seems to have suddenly crapped out" implies
1. bad ethernet adapter,
2. bad ethernet cable, or
3. bad something at the other end of the cable.

Can you try another cable?

Can you try something different at the other end of the cable (e.g., if it was a router, try a different LAN port)?

Can you try the same setup but with a different computer?

I'm having a very similar problem. I can connect wirelessly using my laptop to the internet through my netgear router, but not using my desktop. The desktop is plugged in directly to the router through the ethernet port, but the router light indicating a wired connection isn't lighting up. I've tried installing the router software on the desktop (running winXP), but the installation won't complete as it can't detect the router.

Device manager says that the adaptor is working properly, but the icon in systray says that a network cable is unplugged. I've tried 4 different cables, so I don't think they're to fault.

When I open the command prompt on my desktop and type ipconfig /all:

After uninstalling the ethernet drivers and trying to reinstall it said installation failed, Device driver software was not successfully installed. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey everyone,
I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop A305D-S6848
I previously had Vista on it and now I have installed XP SP2 on it...
Everything in the laptop seems pretty good...
I have installed mostly every drivers I had to install, but the wireless won't work and so doesn't the Ethernet port work...
when i connect the laptop to the router through the ethernet, it doesn't connect to the internet...
The local area connection thing is missing too in Network Connections...
Any help would really be appreciated...
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
select all
enter
control key + C key - to copy

then reply here and
control key + V to paste

Hi, I've got a Thinkpad T530 type 2359 that the ethernet jack on the dock suddenly stopped working a couple weeks ago.Today I tried the port on the laptop itself, tried another port in my switch (which had network connection to my printer), a different (working) cable, updating the driver, still no sign of connectivity.Does anyone have further suggestions or ideas? From other forums i've looked seems like if it's out of warranty (which it is) you're basically SOL. Seems odd to me that both the native jack and the dock jack wouldn't work though.

A:T 530 Ethernet jack not working

Docking station is an extension of laptop. If a LAN network card got damaged, then dock port will also stop working. At this point you need to find, if dock is damaged or motherboard in your laptop. You need either other laptop with compatible docking port or second docking station, which ethernet port is known to work. Ask your friends, maybe someone have one of them.

Clean Install of Win XP Pro sp2 and the ethernet controller is not working. It does not show up in the device manager with the usual yellow question marks, the ethernet controller does not show up at all. The ethernet controller is a Realtek RTL8100C. The computer is a Compaq SR2150NX that shipped originally with Vista (way to slow), I switched it to XP (very fast). Mom Brd is a ECS RC415ST-HM (HP/Compaq Mom Brd name: Alhena5-GL6). I found all of the XP drivers for the Mom Brd (including the ethernet controller) and everything works fine except the ethernet controller. The onboard ethernet is enabled in the BIOS. Could the Realtek chip be bad? How do you force-feed it ethernet drivers when the controller doesn't show up in the device manager? Any advice sure would be appreciated. Thanks...

So i just built my first computer and it worked great for a an hour or so then the Ethernet just stopped working. Now i can?t get it to work on my computer again, the cable works on my laptop and the router workes too.

You mentioned your laptop has Internet connectivity, so why not download drivers from there? If you have a spare flash drive, download the TSG System Information Utility to it, run it on the defective computer, save the output on the flash drive, and then post it back to this thread. It'll give us more of an idea what we're working with here, since you haven't given any information yet regarding the OS and hardware.

Hey,

Earlier this week there was an update for windows 10, I'm not sure what the update was but it took about an hour to install so was fairly big (although I see no real changes). Anyway, since then the ethernet adapter no longer works when the computer starts up. It just says unidentified network and that no cable is connected (the cable definitely is, and I've tried different cables and same result).

Anyway, the solution is to disable the adapter and enable it again, and then it works as expected. The problem is, it will randomly stop working sometime when you start the computer up again, and so you have to go through the process again. I've tried updating the driver, but there are no new updates. Reinstalling the driver is only a temporary fix, as the problem will arise again the next time I restart the device. Is there any permanent solution for this?

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read this post, any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Some system info:
Edition: Windows 10 Home
Version: 1511
OS Build: 10586.164
Network Adaptor: DM9621A USB to Fast Ethernet Adapter(KMDF)

Alrighty. A friend of mines internet just stopped working a few nights ago. I went to her dorm and checked her settings and connections, all fine. Tried plugging her PC into her roomates ethernet box thing and it didn't work, tried a different cable and that didn't work either. She has a Dell laptop, it looks kinda old, thats all I really know.

My question is, is there a free diagnostics tool I could burn onto a cd then run on her laptop to see if it can determine the problem? Like I said, it suddenly stopped working aparently, and using the roomates cable/ethernet jack didn't solve anything, so it looks like a hardware problem.

Thanks for any help, I'd love to save her the trouble of paying for someone to look at it.

Edit: I forgot to mention what the PC is saying. Under device manager it shows the ethernet card working normally, but it says its unplugged. I have also deactivated the card, and reactivated it to no avail. Again after changing cables and replugging everything it the PC says a network cable is unplugged, but its not! Thanks

I recently had a hard drive failure. After installing a new internal hard drive, formatting and installing XP Home/SP2, I reinstalled all my back up files and tweaks etc. All is lean, mean and secure. However, when I was checking my Device Manager, I noticed the yellow ? next to my Ethernet Controller, which explains why I had to reconnect to my DSL through a USB connection instead of my previous ethernet connection.

In my Ethernet Controller Properties, under the General Tab, it reads as follows:

Device Type: Other Devices
Manufacturer: Unknown
Location: PCl Bus 2, Device 8, Function 0

Under the device status states, "Drivers for this device are not installed (code 28). I tried to reinstall the drivers through the Hardware Update Wizard, but it failed and stated, "Hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software.

I have an Intel Pro 100 M Integrated PCI NIC Card.

Thank you in advance for any for any guidance on this.

did you instal the correct drivers for the device?? - where are you getting them from?
you could delete from device manager and then wait for windows to find and then point to the correct drivers

have you installed your motherboard drivers ??

video drivers
sound drivers

often need installing - with the correct manufactureres drivers

hi i'm pretty computer illiterate, so bear with me...

i have a linksys etherfast cable modem with usb and ethernet connection. i am currently connecting to the internet thru my usb port, but i would like to do it though the ethernet card since i am eventually goign to have to get a router so my roommate's computer can be connected also (dont worry, im sure i'll have more problems when we get to networking the two computers!!!). For some reason, i can't get the ethernet card working with the cable modem. it worked last year when i lived in the dorms and used their service but i vaguely recall having problems then, perhaps because my card wasnt on their list and then they added it? im not sure what other information to give. oh, and i have windows xp. Any suggestions?

Hey guys, sorry my first post has to be a question, but by reading through I feel like I have come to the right place. First off I have a basic understanding of computers, (I get some of the common sense stuff) so please keep this in mind. We have 4 Emachines desktops running Windows 7. 3 of the 4 use a Cisco wireless adapter USB to get on internet through our Netgear router. Sorry if I'm using the names like I'm advertising for them, just don't know how much difference knowing brand to brand makes. Anyways one of the desktops USB just stopped working, it showed up in the device manager when you would plug something in but it could not read off of it. I tried multiple portable drives and it the USB wifi adapter quit working. After a few hours I somehow figured out that if I brought the desktop and plugged it into a ethernet cable it would get online. I then performed a Windows update and it fixed the USB's. It done that twice over the period of a week. Both times a updat fixed the problem. I say all that to say Sunday, the one computer that is hardwired to the router by Ethernet cable quit working. The difference is the USB's all work fine, but I believe there is something wrong with the Ethernet port. Basically the same scenario one day its fine next it's not. I've check for updates but it say there is none. I have changed ethernet cable between them, tried swapping port with the cable. Also I swapped other computers to the same ports, they got on...

Iíve been happily using 2Mb broadband through BT for the last 3-4 months or so, but now Iím trying to set up a network for another 2-3 computers to share it Iím running into trouble. I bought a 30m ethernet cable on ebay (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6785598902&rd=1&sspagename=STRK:MEWN:IT&rd=1), but the weird thing is that while itíll work fine if itís connecting my computer to the router, it wonít work with any of the other 3 computers in the house Ė their ethernet ports donít light up green and the computers seem unaware its plugged in to them and unable to detect the router.

My computerís 3Com Gigabit NIC card works with it fine, while the Q-Tek card (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5790017542&rd=1&sspagename=STRK:MEWN:IT&rd=1) I bought wonít work. Neither will the ethernet ports (unknown make offhand) built into the other two computers in the house work with the long 30m cable, but having just about managed to stretch the old short cable I had to one of them that I fitted with the Q-Tek card, it works fine with that.

Is looks like the cable was at fault afterall. Should I just pay for another one and hope that works? Did I buy the wrong sort of cable and if so, what sort should I look for?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions / replies (housemates are getting a bit irritated with the whole thing now so advice would be really useful!)Ö
