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.)


Every time I install a server I have to plug both network cards into a router. I have seen a RJ45 plug that had been wired to fake a network connection, does anybody know the wiring configuration to set this up?

It is a RJ45 loopback plug you want. Google is you friend.

Hi.. I am trying to connect my new router which has an RJ45 connection, to Cablevisions coaxial which is connected to my old Netgear router.
I would like to know which is the best route to take in terms of connecting the new router. Do I have to contact the service provider or is there something I can use like an adapter?. Can anyone help in how to go about this?. Thanks.

A:Solved: RJ45 to Coax connection assistence

The coaxial cable is plugged into a modem. That is then plugged into a router.
Like this: http://www.home-network-help.com/images/home-network.jpg
It sounds like in your case the router and modem are a single unit. You may want to connect the the new router to the old router.

Hi folks, I just bought a HP Elitebook 8540w with i7 2.67GHz Quad Core 8GB DDR3 and loaded it with a Cruzer (r) 250 GB Solid-state drive then loaded Win 7 Pro.  Don't see a wireless device showing up in Device Mgr.  but thought I could get around that and hook up to our WIFI modem (Infinity Technicolor TC8305C) as it's got 3 available RJ45 jacks out the back, but when I go into network adapters in Device Mgr, don't see anything about RJ45 and it doesn't show a connection in Network and Sharing Center and I let Win 7 troubleshoot and it says I don't have drivers for Ethernet Controller and Network Controller.  Is there somewhere I can go to get a big fat file with ALL the drivers for networking in it?   Maybe this will fix the WIFI too?  But I don't think there's a wireless card physically in the unit and have one on the way. Thanks for any help, Jon

Hi, Jon: You just need to install the drivers for the ethernet and network controller devices. Those are the wired and wireless network adapters. Here is the wired one... This package contains the driver installation package for the Intel 82577LM or 82577LC Gigabit Ethernet Controller in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp53501-54000/sp53806.exe Please post the hardware ID for the Network Controller device, so I can figure out what model wireless network adapter is installed in your notebook. To find the hardware ID, click on the Network Controller and then click on the Details tab at the top of the Network Controller window. Now you will see a Property drop down list, and it will be set to Device Description. Drop down on that list and select the 2nd item (Hardware ID's). Post the top string of characters that you see in the window.

I have a HP notebook running Windows 7 Pro that can access network shares and the Internet without issue over Wifi.

However, when I connect to the same network over wired ethernet (Wifi disabled), it can still access network shares, but no Internet.

Any ideas what might be the cause (other hardwired PCs can access both network shares and Internet normally) ?

Hi I have a network problem

My network consists of four machines on a coaxial network using a windowx xp machine as the gateway the coax is connected to a NIC with BNC connector.

I also have a NETGear router/modem/wireless box which i currently have connected to the same pc but via rj45 to a second NIC with RJ45 socket

I have set up this second connection to share the internet connection.

The problem is, access to the internet is dipping in and out. There is no problem with the line as my simple usb modem works ok.

1. Could some one please explain what the following should be set to
FOR COAX NIC(ACTING AS SERVER) IP should be? Gateway should be? DNS shoudl be?
FOR RJ45 NIC(WITH NETGEAR ATTACHED)IP should be? Gateway should be? DNS shoudl be?

FOR ONE OF THE COAX CLIENTS IP should be? Gateway should be? DNS shoudl be?

2. Can i just get a BNC to RJ45 converted and just plug in the Coax with the conerteds on straight in the netgear , negating the need for the A Gateway pc and setting the Netgear as the gateway.

With this way my concern is whether i can just put the converted on the coax then treat is as is were a cat 5 (obvioulsly i understand i will only get 10Mb thourgh it) i.e. pluggin straight into the net gear

Any help would be greatly appreciated


A:Coax and RJ45 Network with internet sharing

I suggest you use a converter: http://www.lanshack.com/10BaseT-to-...UserID=7962661&SessionID=Zs13VmXCHzSrDdOrAERN

Plug that into a port on your switch or router and connect the coax network to the 10Base2 connection.

I have never run into this before.

I have a dsl modem/gateway (actiontec) which i use to connect to the internet

when I connected a Linksys WRT54G v.4 router to my laptop thru RJ45, WITH wifi disabled on the router, I lose connectivity to the internet on the wifi connection.

I'm used to XP with independent connectoids. Looking at the properties on each connection, they appear to be correct.

Has anyone run into this on Vista?

I thought surely by disco'g the wifi on the Linksys Router it should just be a standard wired connection.

both routers are setup for DHCP. Is that what's confusing Vista?

weird. appreciate any help. I am so out of troubleshooting ideas.

Bit of a problem here and wanted to see if anyone could tell me if the following is possible and will work.
I have a wgt624v3 Netgear 108 Mbps wireless firewall router and wish to connect it to the internet, and then use the wireless signal to connect the other pc's to the net, my problem is that I have tried to use a RJ11 and connect it to the back of the router in the RJ45 port that is marked internet, but it won't pick up the internet connection, I have searched other sites that say it is possible for a RJ11 to work in a RJ45 port but it's not working for me, so I found a RJ11 to RJ45 adapter and was hoping that if i use this and convert the RJ11 cable connection to the RJ45 connector and then plug this into the back of the router this would give me an internet connection, would this work?

Thanks for the help

A:RJ11 to RJ45 adapter to connect wgt624v3 to the internet

Sounds to me like you might be trying to teach a router to function as an ADSL modem. That won't work

What's the other end of the RJ11 phone cable plugged into? That Netgear device is probably not an ADSL modem, hence the "ethernet" (RJ45) plug on its back, as opposed to a phone (RJ11) jack. It would need an ADSL modem upstream of it do actually handle the phone stuff.

Then again, I've never owned one of those devices and I could be dead wrong.

Its depend your airtel dongle speed, but I will suggest if you plug in directly to USB port, because LAN port will be another barrier which also affecting your airtel dongle speed, it not good idea, because if your LAN port having some issue it will
wasting your time to do TS.
I think this device very useful if you using it to connect a USB ADSL modem to a router with an RJ45 socket, not for the female USB. Yes, it can add more USB port option in your PC, but I prefer to use other USB port extension with many usb port

Hi, I'm writing on the behalf of my brother, who's (desktop) PC is in the room as I write this on my laptop. We usually share our internet connection (I am still using it), but he is no longer able to connect.

In the past, he has gotten a "A network cable has been unplugged" message several times in seemingly random intervals, restarting his PC would usually fix this.

However yesterday he got a message: "This connection has limited or no connectivity" and his game (AlienSwarm at the time (through steam)) stalled out and he decided to restart the PC yet again, only this time after the reboot, he not only wasn't reconnected to the internet, he also couldn't find the Local Area Connection icon(s) in his Network Connections window, the only thing there is a "1394 Connection" which we have no clue about.

I'm gonna add my skype here if any helpful people need more info on this :P Feel free to add jaan.stern

Also I put this in the XP forum, because I wouldn't know which Network support subforum to use!

A:[SOLVED] Loss of internet connection, along with missing icons in Internet Connection

Start from 'go', ie, in Device Manager, uninstall his network adapter then reboot and set up a NEW network connection.

OK. I'm trying to switch from wireless to a faster(?) ethernet cable based internet access.
I use a Dell Optiplex 755, 32 bit OS, Windows 7. I'm the utilizing Comcast high speed internet supplier, a LinkSys E4200 wireless router, a LinkSys WUMC710 (wireless-ac universal media connector; with promises faster connections/speeds) with ethernet cable OUT to the ONLY ethernet port/card supplied [Network Connector (RJ-45)] on the rear of the small form factor tower. when I run the PC with USB wireless (Linksys AE2500) it works fine, but, I hope for an improvement with the LinkSys WUMC710 inserted in the chain.
the Network Adapter (found in Device Manager) is the Intel(R) 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection. This DOES NOT work with the ethernet cable connection (error 651, WAN Miniport problem). even when I uninstall this driver, it reinstalls upon Windows 7 restart, which is contrary to some of the suggested fix posts I've found in on-line forums dealing with these types of issues.

I'm thinking it may be a missing driver for the ethernet port/Network Connector (RJ-45), but, I am neither a hardware, nor IT tech. therefor I have no idea what driver I would SPECIFCICALLY require ofr this port(?), nor can I discern the particular ethernet card that came factory installed on this machine. I have consulted the Dell site and, lo & behold, they don't endorse using Windows 7 on the Optiplex 755, so the only driver updates/downloads are listed for endorsed OS's XP & Vista. so n...

Well I've fiddled around and searched to no avail ...

I have some form of conflict between my main wireless network and a LAN I use for file
transfer and streaming.

The attached PDF file illustrates the setup. Basically, the wireless network is fine by
itself. Music streams from the Asus EeePC to the various Squeezeboxes and internet
connectivity is enabled on all PCs and the iPad.

The LAN works well by itself, allowing me to use FreeFileSync to quickly and relaible
transfer / backup music between the Acer dekstop and Asus netbook server PCs, and to
stream music from the Asus EeePC (which is the music server running Logitech Media
Server) to the Squeezebox 2.

However, the two networks can't co-exist without the Acer and/or Asus losing internet
connectivity when their respective LAN connections are made to the Buffalo router they
share with the Squeezebox 2.

The notification area shows:-

Currently connected to:

No internet access

Internet access

Wireless Network Connection:

SqueezeNet Connected


I have attached the ipconfig /all output in the out.txt file and diagram of the network in Network.pdf.

I suspect this is a simple clash of parameters somewhere, or incompatible IP addresses but I'm not good enough to resolve it.

A:RJ45 connectors

With the order of continuity being different on each end, it isn't possible you used the same order on both ends. The problem is going to be figuring out which end is wrong. Get out your magnifying glass a look closely.

My guess is that you flipped the RJ45 connector when inserting wires into one of the ends. All of the instructions I've seen tell me to hold the retainer clip downward then gives me the order in which to insert the wires, left to right. You probably did it holding the retainer clip down on one end and up on the other.

What's the REAL way to network only two notebooks with an RJ45 crossover cable?Click to expand...

Connect one end of the cable to one notebook and the other end to the second notebook. Done; they are networked.

I assume that you really want to enable file and printer sharing; here is a "wizard" way ...

Run the Network Setup wizard (found in Control Panel of XP). Tell it each of your computers connects to the internet via "residential gateway" and that you want to enable file and printer sharing. Create a disk at the end only if you have a Windows PC other than XP or 2k Pro or newer.

Windows XP firewall (if SP2 or SP3) will be properly configured by the wizard (but make sure it is not set to “No Exceptions&#8221. You must uninstall or properly configure any 3rd party firewalls on each machine. Unique computer names and same workgroup, of course.

The Shared Documents folder is automatically shared. Any other folders (or drives) or printers you want to share, just right click on them and sharing ... . When sharing a printer, accept the offer to load other drivers if your other PCs have different Operating System(s).

When you first go into My Network Places there will be nothing there. The first time you click on 'View Workgroup computers' will probably result in great disappointment. It takes awhile (up to 15 minutes) before all the computers in the workgroup get up-to-date and accurate lists of the other computers. Often y... Read more

I bought an RJ45 splitter from Cables To Go. I installed it on one of the out ports on a Linksys 4-port wireless router. I have all the other ports in use, and just wanted to hook in two computers that will never be in use at the same time. One of the out pots on the splitter works fine, the other will not allow a connection. I found a website that offers instructions for building a splitter and the wiring diagram from the website matches the diagram that appears on the back of the CtoG splitter. Also, a description of the use of the homemade splitter seems to be exactly what I am trying to do. I have considered two possibilities, one being that the CtoG splitter is just bad. I also got to thinking that the wired ports on the router may already be "split". Anyone have any suggestions?


A:Rj45 splitter problem?

hmm; you would be better off geting a cheap hub.

With the 'splitter' or a hub connected to a router, there's an issue that you may not be aware of - - IP address conflicts.

A major point of a router is to ensure each device gets a unique IP address assignment (using the DHCP feature). With a splitter (or hub), all connections see all the traffic so DHCP is ineffective. The only way to still use them is to have the connected devices
manually configured for all the TCP settings.

Hey everyone!

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I feel like it relates to networking.

I work at a chemical company and we have a peace of lab equipment; a Varian CP-3800 GC - it is a Gas Chromatograph that connects to an old computer we have sitting running Windows XP SP3 and has a NIC card in it with a BNC connector. This peace of lab equipment runs over this BNC connection.

So what I am trying to do is to migrate to a new computer; put the NIC card in the new computer running Windows 7 x64. Here are my problems though.
The BNC card manufacture, Realtek has not made drivers for Windows 7. Model of the NIC is RTL8029AS
I tried a BNC to RJ45 converter, but it seems like either the GC does not see the connection or the converter is bad, but the RJ45 lights blink but the BNC lights show no activity.

My wireless router is downstairs in our living room, next to a telephone socket where it is connected (I believe the telephone connection is RJ12?). The telephone line extends up to a bedroom upstairs (cabled outside the house), where a telephone socket is presented in the bedroom.

Why don't I run an Ethernet cable alongside the telephone cable, outside the house, between the two rooms? It makes sense to me. So my question is, can I buy a faceplate with an RJ12 and RJ45 socket presented, both downstairs and upstairs?

It should be noted that the socket downstairs has a test socket behind the faceplate, I am not sure if this would cause a problem? I'd rather take this route than have to install a separate RJ45 socket in each room if at all possible.

I hope this makes sense and if so, is it possible?

Thanks for reading!

A:RJ12 and RJ45 faceplate?

You can buy standard sized electrical faceplates that have one to six rectangular cutouts in them in them. The cutouts can accept snap in clips from the same manufacturer as the faceplate that contain various types of sockets. These sockets typically include RJ45, RJ11, Coaxial F, RCA Phono jacks, Phone jacks and spring loaded wire clips. There are also blank filler clips in case you are not putting jacks into all of the cutouts right away.



I don't know where you are located but many hardware and home improvement stores (Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, etc.) in the USA carry at least one such product line.

FYI, A typical residential phone jack in the USA is RS11 with four out of six contact positions used. The two outside contact positions are left blank. An RS12 jack is the same size as an RS11 jack but uses all six positions.

Well, every time I just bump my cable it's get disconnected from the port.
I'm sure it's not cable. What can I do to get my RJ-45 port to be working normally? It does not even make that sound when cable is about to be plugged.

Hi, I am new here but have a question if someone has an answer that would be much appreciated.
I am not very computer savvy but I will try and explain my question as best I can.
I will be going on vacation to the South Pacific on a tiny island and it's very expesnsive to call home. So i had an idea to get a Palm pilot to email my family who will be with our special needs daughter while we are gone, but when I checked into a connection they only have an RJ 45 plug for laptops and it is my understanding that the RJ 45 plug is to big for the palm pilots, is there such thing as an adapter or something that I can get to connect the palm pilot to that plug. Laptop to expensive for the time I need it. Thanks in advance for any help and sorry for the rambling.

My Japanese friend got a LC900J laptop. He wants to join out LAN to use the internet. However, I can't find RJ45 connector on his computer and his windows is full of Japanese! Is this true that this laptop doesnt have a network card? Is there a way to connect this computer to the network using an USB adapter or something like that?

Thanks in advance!

I have a computer I use for bittorrent and other file sharing programs. Legal, of course, I just share/download things like systm, twit, etc. I would really like to be able to turn off the internet connection to this computer at the router without needing to go to the computer, pause the downloads, etc. The computer Is in another room and I usually just want to check my email/search for something and turn the connection back on.

All I need is a coupler with a switch. I've searched the internet, but I cannot find anything like this. I have all the proper tools, cable, cable ends, etc. I installed the network in my house. I just need a simple on/off switch. A splitter with a switch would be fine too, I just wouldn't plug anything into the other port. I just can't find it. Please point me to someplace I can order something like this.

I notice that Ethernet RJ45 Cat5e cables vary considerably in price - with the most expensive costing 5 times the least expensive.

Is there any real benefit to purchasing an expensive Ethernet patch cable? And if there is what is the benefit?

Do you think that would work or we have any such convertors?
From my wireless connection I ppoe cable instead of phone cable, so the end is an RJ45 connector, my router input for wireless is RJ11, so if i convert that RJ45 to RJ11 and connect to the router.. that should be able to project the wireless connection right??

I can't find any RJ45 TO RJ11 convertors??



A:Convert RJ45 to RJ11

think that won't work .. don't know.. the internet transmitter is wireless. so I have an antenna sitting on the window, connecteed to a none wireless router which got special inputs to receive and convert the radio signal to normal internet signal. Therefore I have a ppoe network cable that comes out which I connect to my computer as a RJ45
But I want to connect that network cable to a wireless router which has an input of RJ11 (PHONE JACK) input for internet. So i need I convertor to convert the RJ45 TO RJ11.

If I do that, the router will generate its own IP address and so there will be a conflict between both routers as both will try to generate an ip address, so if i put the second router which is a Thomson TG585 to have static ip address and convert the router to a repeater, it should be able to project that internet connection signal as wireless??

Who thinks thats possible??

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-NS30 here. Connects perfectly to the internet with wireless.

Then when I try to connect by cable, nothing. It doesn't even recognise it has been inserted.
Windows Vista, newly installed.

Drivers fully up to date, when I ask it to troubleshoot, it says plug in the cable, done that, it doesn't recognise it.

What do we think? I'm pretty sure must be dead hardware. Anyone else?

Thanks very much.#

I am seeking advice here to solve a problem with internet connection on my laptop.
The laptop (Thinkpad X61 running 32 bit Vista) seems to be ok to connect to my router, which is connected to a cable modem. Internet is also connected on the base level (more details below). However Internet Explorer (or firefox, opera) cannot find any web page, and Mozilla Thunderbird email program cannot connect to email server.
I am decently ok with computers, so I have run some checks myself. This is not a problem of router or cable modem, as my other computers can access internet through the same router and modem. Also, the laptop gets an IP address from the router and can connect to shared resources on other computers within the same network.
The laptop also finds outside addresses and get a response when I run ping command, e.g. ping www.google.com or ping www.yahoo.com, suggesting that the connection to DNS server is fine at the base level.
I was suspecting that windows firewall, my Symantec antivirus or VPN is creating the problem. But the problem persists after I disabled firewall and the antivirus software and deleted VPN connection.
One important thing to mention is that this problem starts when after a software install, which I removed afterwards. I tried to run netsh reset by "netsh winsock reset catalog", "netsh int ipv4 reset myreset.log" and "netsh int ipv6 reset myreset.log" and restart. Still does not work.

After repairing my Windows XP installatation I am no longer able to set up my internet connection either manually or via the connection wizard. It appears that the Remote Access Connection Manager (Rasman)within administrative tools is stopped. When I try to start this I am "denied access" (errror 5). I've located the svchost.exe that Rasman points to in Windows/system32 and confirmed in properties that I should have full control of this service. Any ideas?
