Wireless internet disconnects when LAN ethernet cable is plugged in

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

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?

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.)

A: 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.

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.)
 

A: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.

I have been having BSOD problems ever since I bought this computer (almost a year ago)
Originally it would BSOD on File > Open but I worked around that.
Not It BSODs when ever I either boot it up with some type of internet adapter plugged in, or plug some sort of internet adapter after I turned it on. If I plug it in after it has be turned on, it will run for maybe 10-20 min, and then BSOD.
I was unable to retrieve a System Health Report
I received the error:

The system cannot find the path specified.
This may relate to me being in safe mode but I'm not sure.

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.

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.
Motherboard is ASROCK FM2A88M-hd

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! Thanks in advance

My problem is that I Have a wireless adapter hooked onto the end of 2 usb extension cables that have their own power supply, so its not a problem of range. I've had it set up like this for two months, where the wireless adapter was set on the end of the 2 usb extension cables, and it worked just fine.

USB extension cables

I have a Linksys Wireless A/G USB Network Adapter

http://www.amazon.com/Linksys-WUSB54G-Wire...r/dp/B00009X6PH

Now suddenly I wake up one morning to find the message "USB Device not recognized." This only happens when I have the wireless adapter plugged into the two cables. I have tried plugging it into each of the different cables seperately, and it wont work on either cable, as well as working off the end of both cables. When I just plug it in straight into the computer it works fine. Any other USB device I plug into these cables works fine, weather it be a webcam etc. Just the combo of my Wireless adapter and my extension cables doesn't work. What do I do? But yeah if I have to buy something so be it, I'm just not sure whats wrong in this case. I've tried the most obvious means of solving the problem, simply restarting the computer, unplugging the device and plugging it back in etc. I've tried reinstalling the drivers on both the cables and the device, nothing seems to work. I don't understand it at all.

Thanks,
Acton

A:My internet will only work through ethernet cable not wireless

The DNS settings you have appear to be for Virgin Media in UK

who is your ISP

can we see an ipconfig /all when you are connected by cable and working please

you may want to check you DNS settings and see if changing those to use google open DNS resolves the issue

Google public DNS
Note using google public DNS servers from outside the US may actually slow performace - so use the following as a test to identify DNS issues - if these resolve the issues , then we need to investigate further to optimise the use of DNS
Google public DNS
https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/

Theres also a link on how to setup those DNS IP address up on a PC
http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using.html

Then once you have set up those DNS entries

Flush & register DNS

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 commands:

Ipconfig/flushdns
ipconfig/registerdns

If you receive the message
The requested operation requires elevation.
Then please open the command prompt as administrator

A:My internet will only work through ethernet cable not wireless

There may be an issue on the ISP side or router side since restoring to defaults didnt help. Or it could be an issue with the network adapter. Or it could be an issue with the firewall.

Try downloading running these tools (download via ethernet, run on wireless): Network Fix-It Tool (right click on the internet bars on the task bar in the bottom right hand side of the screen, and click "troubleshoot network...") and Firewall Fix-It Tool.

Did you install anything on your PC before this happened? Did Windows install any updates?

Try disabling your AntiVirus. That may be the issue. I doubt it though.

Tell me if any of these solutions help.

Well I proved I was right, but unfortunately I also screwed something up in my laptop (IBM)
now I can connect to my network, I "see" the network, I am connected to it, excellent range etc, but no internet connection.

now I know its not my router or nothing cuz my other laptops and pc's are all working fine,
its not the range since I have it now sitting literally next to my router)
I tried to recycle router and cable modem
I tried restarting

I have a compaq Laptop, HP F700 running windows vista 32 bit, about 2 years old
and have had the same internet issues since I bought the dame thing.

I have searched the web for hours trying to find the answers, made some changes, but still have the same problems. I have turned off all security programs, downloaded drivers, applied a fix patch from Microsoft, enabled some functions that were disabled all to know avail.

I can connect: at work (via cbl), at a friends house (cbl) and at home via neighbors wireless.
I cannot connect to my roommates Ethernet cable or wireless router (running on windows XP, wireless via linksys router). The wireless router was recently set up and my connection was great for about a day but has not worked for weeks. In the 'network and sharing center' window it shows while I am connected to my roommates wireless network it is only a local connection: that's there is a red x between the wireless network and the internet. When I click on red x and run the windows diagnostics program I get 'There may be a problem with th Domain Name Servers (DNS)'

I had the same problem at work using a cable and the tech guy just changed some iPv4 settings and have never had connection problems but home is a different story. I am just trying to get the wireless connection but even a cable connection would be a break through.

Hello,

I have just arrived at a friends house to stay for a while and my laptop does not connect to the internet properly through the wireless yet works perfectly when plugged into the router directly through ethernet cable. it is not the actual router's wireless that is broken because there are three other laptops that connect and work just fine.

I have done several virus scans using AVG and Spybot Search and Destroy and other than incredibar nothing has been found so i dont think it is a virus. I thought it might have been the 6to4 adapter so i disabled to no avail.

The problem is not connecting to the network as that works fine and every now and again i can get 10 minutes of internet use before it stops working. most of the time still saying i am connected to the internet for an extra 5 minutes then saying i have a local only connection.

I'm having a strange issue regarding internet.
Moved country...Ireland to Australia.
PC had never caused any issues before and was connected to net via a wireless adapter.
Moved to Australia, set up PC, everything seems fine apart from not being able to connect to Internet.

Wireless - when I plug wireless adapter into usb port, toolbar displays Monitor with red x, so i double click and to view network list but my network isn't available....but my neighbors one shows up.....even though according to the status of wireless network connections adaptor is "Not connected"??????but my network is a very strong signal and am actually using it right now on my notebook to send this mail....so adaptor's sees asnother network but not my network which is 1 metre away?????

Ethernet Cable - Plug in cable but nothing happens, no change on toolbar, nothing in Network Connections.
Tried internet with 192.168.0.1 but doesn't work....stumped.

Am I making a simple schoolboy error here?

Checked Device Manager and there is a yellow question mark at Other Devices, opened that and inside yellow question mark and exclamation mark over "other PCI Bridge" and "Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

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?

A: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.

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!

A: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.

hopefully someone has some suggestions for this.
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.
 
i've also tried loading up linux via a usb, which also freezes as soon as the cable is connected.

A: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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Chrome, or whatever I'm using simply stops responding, and I get the spinning rainbow pinwheel of doom. Forced to manually power off. This has also occurred to a friends... Read more

Hello,

My ASUS N61Jq laptop worked fine up until last night when I put it into Hibernation mode, as I frequently do.

I started it up again the morning, and the PC simply froze while the desktop was loading. All the icons were able to load, but the right hand side widgets had not yet appeared, and the Wireless network icon was still searching for a network. I tried rebooting several times but it systematically froze shortly after Windows had started loading.

The same problem occured in Safe Mode with Networking. In fact, the freezing always seemed to happen while the system was searching for an Internet network. I have an Atheros AR8131 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller that I updated 3 days ago (driver version 2.1.0.12) and an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (driver version 3.0.8.1). My wi-fi router was on, and my desktop PC was able to connect to it just fine, so the problem didn't seem to come from there.

I tried turning off the Wi-Fi button on the laptop, and all it did was cause the freezing to happen almost immediately after the User Account selection screen appeared.
The computer did work fine in Safe Mode, in which I ran CCleaner, Glary Utilities, performed a full Avast scan and a sfc/SCANNOW: no problem.

I tried disabling various non-system items in the Startup Group: no change.

Good afternoon everyone,

Please excuse the way that I may communicate as I am fairly new to posting on here.

I have been having problems with my fathers computer. He currently has a linksys B network card and also has the capability of hooking up with an ethernet cable as he is close enough to it. The software he is using is windows XP

The problem that he has is that while he is using any of his applications, such as on facebook, the computer will intermittently lose connection completely. At first i though that it may have been a problem with the network card but then found out that it is also happening when directly connected.

I run on the same router in the house and use a dell Latitude E6500 with windows vista and no problems staying online.

Does anyone have any possible idea as to how to resolve this. I am in the process of ordering a new network card for him that is a 802.11g instead of a 802.11b beyond this I cannot find any idea as to what is causing it. Any assistance is appreciated and I am more than happy to provide anymore necessary info.
 

A:computer int disconnects from router on both wireless and with ethernet

Welcome to TSG:
If you are experiencing disconnects on both wired and wireless,I might assume that the problem does not lie with the wireless adapter alone.
Couple of things I might do.
Run your updated antivirus/antispyware suite to flush out any potential threats.
When you lose connectivity,take a look at task manager.Any particular task/process using a high % of cpu.? Idle task should be running above 90%.
Boot up in safe mode with networking.
Same problem?.
Just to be safe,I might download any more current firmware for your router.I understand that your other pc does not have an issue,but newer firmware if available can't hurt.
Any error msgs when connectivity is lost ?
How do you recover ?

I have a HP G62-371DX Notebook that I have been using to access the internet. Lately I have been experiencing random disconnects that will last from maybe 30 seconds to 2 minutes. They will happen maybe every hour or two and are becoming really annoying. At first I was using the laptops wifi abilities to connect to my router. So when these disconnects began to happen I tried plugging in an Ethernet cable into the router and still experience the same disconnects. The only other devices in the house that experience this is the xbox 360 which is connected with an ethernet cable aswell. The router that I had was an old netgear router, but in the past week we got a new router which is a SMCD3GNV. I have only had it working today and I had the problem maybe 3-4 times within the first 12 hours (with both the wifi and ethernet connection). I have tried updating the firmware and resetting the router and modem. I just don't know what the problem is or how to fix it.

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

Hi,

I'm having some trouble with my internet and I'm not sure what to do. Every so often, the connection will be lost and I have to either wait or right click the connection icon in the task bar and click troubleshoot (sometimes it doesn't fix it, and I just have to wait). It can take between 30s to 20min to reconnect and it goes off randomly anywhere from 5mins to 4+ hours in between, but it is quite often.

I have a wired connection to my PC, using those plugin network adapters that let you use Ethernet via wall sockets. I also have plenty of other devices using both the same wired/adapter set-up and WiFi. TVs, consoles, mobile devices, etc, never have this issue, it's just my pc.

Usually when it happens I click the little icon in the task bar and select troubleshoot options, which then goes on to tell me either the "default gateway" is not available, and it fixes it, or it fails to fix it and gives me other things to try (turning off router), which never work.

Everything I seem to find on-line relating to it, is about a wireless connection and trying updated wifi adapter drivers, but I don't have a WiFi dongle or network card.

Any advice is greatly appreciated, it's quite frustrating. No on-line games for me

I can't find the option "LAN/WLAN switching"  in the bios (N22 version 2.15). This option exist on a HP EliteBook 850 G2 (bios: M71 version 1.09).
 
 
Any suggestions?
 
 
Thanks in advance!

A:No wireless when network cable is plugged in

You could simply disable the wifi adapter when not wanting it to be in use. right click to disable or enable on the adapter.

I would think it would be a Modem Router issue , also check lines and filters etc.

I do get as far as th game lobby and after 30 seconds with the cable connected to my pc I get kicked as it can't connect to the game, however an interesting thing is if I pull out the cable and activate wireless I get an instant connectik to the game but my ping goes way up, I then test this again by disabling wireless and putting in the cable and I lose connection to the game

Oddly when I use steam with wireless I get a download rate for games and updates if about 200kb/s but with the cable plugged in I get 900+ so it's definantly working it just won't let me play games online and normally Internet runs much faster for videos etc while the cable is plugged in

My Internet provider which is sky assure me nothing is in place that should be blocking and quite frankly treat me like in dumb as all they want is for me to keep resetting the modem or say perhaps my computer can't play the game
