Wireless fine, Ethernet not so much...

Q: Wireless fine, Ethernet not so much...

I recently purchased an HP Pavillion Elite 441F computer. Upon starting it up, I discovered that although my wireless connection works perfectly, I cannot connect via an ethernet cable. I have tried multiple ethernet cables that I verified the connectivity of using my laptop. When I plug in an ethernet cable, the port shows a green light and an orange light below it. My computer recognizes that an ethernet cord has been plugged in, but shows the over the eternet box on the taskbar. All drivers are up-to-date.

Thoughts? I appreciate any help offered.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

For the past 3 days I've not been able to sustain an ethernet connection from my laptop. I've had a tech out from my ISP to check the router and it's fine. So with everything updated and working properly, my connection keeps dropping in and out. Wireless works just fine though. I'm thinking it could be a software problem but I'm darned if I can figure out where. Please find my system info as requested below.

Hi, I am using the Actiontec MI-424WR or MI424WR router that I am provided by verizon. My service provides 15 Mbps down 2 Mbps up. When I first got the service earlier this month tests done at speakeasy showed 15/1.7 which was normal. The past week or so, my connection has deteriorated to being now about 300-700k/1.7. I still get full upload speed, but I don't get anywhere near the download speed I should be getting. My mother's computer which is on a wireless connection gets 10 mbps which is good for wireless. I have also put a wireless card in my laptop which gets 10 mbps also. I still can figure out though why a wired connection would have issues. I tried searching all the help forums, but I cant find an answer. I am not sure whether its my laptop's ethernet port or the router's ethernet, I have checked all 4 ports on the router.

thanks

Hi all.
First of all, I want to thank you guys in advance for putting your time and effort to solve my issue. any answer would be grateful to me.

My internet provider is At&t and as I mentioned in the title, wireless internet works perfectly fine, but Ethernet connection doesn't work on my desktop. Currently I am using wireless adapter on my PC, and it works just fine. I tried disabling the wireless connection, resetting the modem, re installing the Ethernet driver and anything I can think of.

The odd thing is that my brother used Ethernet connection just fine with his desktop about three weeks ago, with same router and same cable. So I am assuming that my computer is the one with the problem but I can't figure it out why.

I'm going to try out the different cable tomorrow, but I highly doubt it will fix my problem.

Help me guys. If you need any other information, ask away. I will give it to you as much as I can

A:Wireless works fine, Ethernet doesn't

Odds are that the NIC has failed.

Another low possibility (in addition to cable and router LAN port) are the PC's firewall or security suite misconfigured or corrupted.

Another thing to try: in Device Manager right click on the ethernet - Properties - Advanced tab - for the 'Speed & Duplex' property try different values beginning with '100 Mbps full duplex' and '10 Mbps full duplex.'

This morning I turned on my computer to notice that it was missing several drivers, including graphics, keyboard and USB controller. I have since fixed all of this yet my Ethernet connection will not show on available networks (I have no WiFi card in my desktop). I ran an ipconfig and attatches the results. The modem is fine, and the cable works in my laptop without fault. When plugged into the desktop it flashes green but no connection available

I'm sure this has been asked 1000 times but I cannot seem to find my exact issue anywhere. Hopefully this helps myself and anyone who runs into this issue.

To start, I have Windows 7 Professional 64bit. Everything worked 100% fine with absolutly no issue and then.... I moved. Now we have Fios instead of Comcast.

Now to the issue. When I have the ethernet connected I cannot get internet access but I have full network access. I went out and purchased a new wirless card and wirless works just fine. I tested 2 different cables, recrimped both of them and nothing. I have activity on the PC and the Router so I am sure they are good.

I have tried everything I have read online, Updated Realtek Family PCI Ethernet drivers from MSIglobal. Disabled/Enabled. ipconfig /flushdns, /release and /renew. I went as far as Backing up and reformating the Hard Drive and before reinstalling the backup I tested it and nothing. Restored my backup file and yep.. nothing.

Its kind of frustrating. I'm not exactly and expert but i am in no way a novice either. This one has me stumped. Im thinking maybe it is a windows service that is not set to start correctly but I figured I would creat a post while I am at work and maybe have and answer to test before I hunt through the services tonight.

Any advice is greatly appreciated

Thanks

Looking for some help here as I'm stuck.
3 year old Toshiba laptop (Satellite P100). Ethernet and wireless both worked fine with XP. Since upgrading to Windows 7, my wireless is fine, but I can't connect to the internet via Ethernet. Other computers in the house are connected to my router (linksys WRT54GL) and work fine. I've set up an IP address manually (like I have on the other computers) with no luck. Automatically setting it will not work either. I'm using just TCP/IPv4 (v6 is unchecked, older router doesn;t support it). I've played with just about everything I can think of and still no luck.
The strange thing is that when I try to load a website, the data seems to trickle in for a second. For example, going to google.com, it will look like its loading, but nothing will come up. Then just the text will come up after maybe 20 seconds, but the logo (ie graphics) will not. It will just hang there and time out. Any normal webpage I visit will just sit on a blank screen then Firefox will report it's "done" at the bottom, but nothing will be displayed.

I also cannot log-on to my router, same problem, it will not load the web interface page, and will just time-out.

Recently I performed a reinstallation of windows on my laptop. Normally I had no problems with the wireless, but after the reinstallation my laptop refuses to acknowledge that there are wireless networks. When I'm not connected to the internet, it asks to connect using a wire connection only.

I have a Dell Inspiron iM101z running Windows 7 Home Premium, and I downloaded all the drivers for what the Dell website told me my laptop model was, a Dell Inspiron 1121. Attached is a picture showing the oddities of my problem. The icon on the taskbar shows that I have to connect with an ethernet cord; no wireless icon is shown.

If I try to unplug the ethernet cable and connect to the internet, I only get the option to do a broadband connection. Also, once I unplug the cable, I get "no connections available."

Most likely this is still a driver problem.

Linksys PCI G Wireless Adapter has stopped working after a semester at college. The network was wired there, so my desktop was plugged into it for 3 months, but the adapter itself was safe.
It worked before I left for college, and I just got back, set everything up again, and it is detected in device manager, I enabled, disabled, reinstalled drivers after removing the old ones, and tried installing and uninstalling it.

When at college, because this is a Vista machine, I had to update my drivers that manage my wired connection, because they were not working when I first got to college. I was wondering if this may be the cause of the problem.

Hi, I was looking around for an active PC forum for some help and this one seems to have a few users so hopefully I can get this resolved! I'll try and keep everything quick.

Basically the Wi-Fi connection loses connection for a fraction of a second and breaks what it is doing, i.e. downloading a file >10mb or so, the download begins fast and after a few mb stops until it eventually fails. Video streaming will buffer a bit and then stop, if I let the video get to the end it just sits there pretending to load and I need to move the slider back a few seconds to make it buffer again. Speed tests won't complete, they start off fast and then stop, the speed just goes down slowly until the test gives an error. Google instant search is broken so I had to disable that.

That's basically the idea, general web browsing is fine because I don't need to receive lots of continuous data, it's the above things that give problems. This is only happening on Wi-Fi and only on my laptop. If I plug into Ethernet and try a speed test it completes with no problems, 2 seconds later on Wi-Fi and it gives an error. I can also complete them through my phone without any problems so it's something to do with the laptop.

I did a full Windows reset and let Microsoft automatically get drivers, problem was still there. I downloaded the official driver from the Toshiba website and installed that, problem was still there. I scoured the internet for drivers and found a more updated one than the previ... Read more

The ingredients: cable modem, Trendnet 5 port ethernet (not wireless) hub, laptop running current version of OS X Leopard PPC, PC running XP SP2

The hub went in yesterday. Cable modem is in port 1
OS X laptop is in port 2. OS X found a connection with no problem.
XP box is in port 3. XP says, 'weak connection' and delivers nothing.

And I am dead in the water. The Network Setup Wizard on XP advises tells me to turn off file/printer sharing so Windows Firewall can protect the computer. Other sources on the web tell me that Windows Firewall is a joke, and that any third party firewall is a better choice. File sharing is an integral part of having a network at home, I thought.

What am I missing? Before the hub, I was just turning off the cable modem and switching ethernet cords. It was not an elegant system, but it worked.

Do I need to designate one computer as an always-on server? I prefer not to do that. All I want to do is share the cable connection, and occasionally move some files.

So here is my story. A couple days ago I awoke to having no internet access over any devices connected through Ethernet or Wifi. My first thought was it was just a fluke and to power cycle my router and modem. After doing so I still got nothing. Called up my ISP thinking that the internet might be down due to a winter storm we had that night. They said that it wasn't. They sent signals to my modem and everything appeared to be working properly.

My equipment then:

Arris SB6141
Asus RT-AC3200

So I decided to make a run to Best Buy (not my first choice but convenient) to pick up a new cable modem. Purchased a Arris SB6190. Got it home, called up ISP (Spectrum) and had them provision it. Everything went smooth. Well now I was getting internet but only over WiFi. So now I'm thinking that my router bit the dust. Took another trip to Best Buy and purchased a Linksys EA9500 router. Got home, hooked it all up, same exact thing. Wifi works but everything connected through Ethernet has no connection.

Earlier my desktop was to b in d same place where the router was der. Everything worked fine. Now I decided to shift my desktop to another room. I have kept the router at the earlier place only. I have brought a 25m long new cat 5 cable. When I connected it to my desktop, the orange led on ethernet port do not light up and the desktop is unable to detect the ethernet cable and hence the internet connection. On the router, a light of ethernet keeps on blinking every 1 second. I was worried whether my ethernet port got fried. So i inserted another ethernet cable, but then the ethernet orange light came and the pc detedted the connection. Therefore I thought the cable might be faulty. Therefore I connected my laptop with that 25m cable. But my laptop detected it and showed the internet connection. But now when i again connect the cable to my desktop, there's no light and the pc does not detect it. However, if i connect the 25m cable to my desktop then during boot the ethernet light on router is stable just as when it is normally connected to the internet. But when i go into windows it starts blinking every 1 second.

Hi there, thanks in advance.

I've had this computer a few months and so far it works great. Then today I turn it on and try to go on the internet and it says I have no connection. Tried plugging and unplugging the cable, wiggled it around, tried to connect it with a different cable and I still have no internet. The cable is in, it tells me there is a local area connection and all, but when I go to properties there is not IP, etc etc.

I have it on a network, if that helps, and none of the others have this problems. The computer prints to a shared printer attached to another computer on my network, so I tried to print something to see if that was still working, but it says it can't due to an unknown error.

Is there a fix for this?
 

A:Computer seems fine, but the ethernet input doesn't work?

You might try cycling the modem and router.
Unplug the power from the back of the router and modem for 10 seconds.
Plug the router back in and let it boot up,then do the same with the modem.

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found, here's how


Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type or copy and paste the following command:

ipconfig/all > 0 & notepad 0

and press enter.

Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB drive, or a CD-R disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Hi

I have a ZyXEL 600 wireless router - it has worked without issues for years.

However yesterday evening my wireless router suddenly stopped broadcasting a signal.

2 different PC's and a wifi dongle attached to our TV were suddenly all unable to find my network.

The WLAN light on the router was still lit up. I connected my Acer Aspire 5742Z laptop to the router via an ethernet cable and it worked fine. I connected to the router and it said there were no errors.

I phoned ZyXEL support this morning and they dialled in, confirmed the router was reporting it was working. They installed inSSIDer on my PC and verified no signal was being picked up - but other local wireless networks were being picked up.

They suggested buying another modem as it was very old and could have just reached the end of its life.

So I bought a brand new Sitecom 300N x2 modem this morning, connected it up and have the exact same problem. All the right lights are on the modem (solid WLAN, DSL and Internet lights), I can connect via an ethernet cable but none of my devices can find a the wireless browser (but can find other networks and connect to them).

I've spent hours on the phone today to various tech people and gone through channel switching, changing encryption etc but nothing has worked. The router is sat in the same place it has been for the last 3 years and the laptop is inches from it but still no joy.

Since I upgraded to Windows 10 Home from Windows 7, I've noticed that from a cold boot - e.g. PC has been turned off for several hours, the Ethernet network icon has the red X through it and I dont get any internet/network access.

It reports that the cable is unplugged. It definitely is plugged in, it goes straight into a Netgear Powerline homeplug.

If I then reboot, it connects straight away no problem at all.

I havent installed the motherboards LAN drivers, but thought it might be something else before I tried that?

My PC with windows 7 is the only computer with issues in the house. Ethernet works perfectly but wifi doesn't even when I don't have the ethernet hooked up. The wifi says it is connected but browsers, steam, and Itunes don't work. I have Bitdefender A/V and already tried uninstalling it, no change. I also uninstalled steam and Itunes with still no change. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the wireless adapter. I tried looking and I don't recall downloading or installing anything around the time the problem started. Before I try replacing the adapter itself, I was hoping for help here since I saw a very similar problem in another thread.

Hi, I currently connect to the internet through a wired ethernet port in the wall which connects to my university's network.

I want to make this wireless since I bought a new macbook and was wondering if this product would do it? http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006PYGWG6

I don't know much about it but I was concerned because the Router Mode says 'cable connection only' and I'm not sure the connection is cable (is it ADSL?). Will I need anything else like a modem?

Any advice?

hey guys
so i finally decided to install win7 x86 - everything went well - put all the standard stuff on there etc - i rebooted many times because of installations and updates
on my last reboot it just got stock in the bios screen (verifying dmi pool data..success! etc)
so i rebooted, same thing, took the disc out, same thing - turned off boot devices same thing
tried to use window's useless repair tools (whatever happened to repair install?) which didn't help - so i decided to format and reinstall - then it says it was unable to do that (partition error or something)

the annoying this is...is that this EXACT..i mean EXACT same thing happened when i installed vista sp1 from scratch - this happened - and to fix it i had to leave my pc open overnight with the hard drive cables all unplugged..in the morning with my fingers crossed i tried the installation again - and it worked.

my d: always disappears (single hard disk sata 233gig (250)) - sometimes it'll vanish from my computer and stuff - but this can't be the problem because the d: is a single drive on its own - my c: is a25gig partition from my e: - so it's completely unrelated.

does it matter how i replug the sata cables (2 of them) into the mother board? - they're both being recognised anyway

this is really annoying though - mostly because there isn't really an explanation - and because this random stuff always happens to my pc! - is it my hard drive because that's the only thing that would half- make sense :-/

Did you delete/recreate the partition? If you haven't then do this first and try re-installing Win 7. I wouldn't recommend removing the watermark as that can have unpredictable results.

Ok, so this is my problem. I have 4 devices that can connect to the network. The Main PC is wire connected to the wireless router which is connected to my modem. I have a laptop, a PS3, and another PC that can all connect to the internet with no problems through the wireless connection. At any given time, there are a minimum of 2 devices connected to the network. I rarely connect my PS3 to the network, and have recently kept my main PC shut down. My laptop is connected for as long as I have it in use, and the other PC is rarely connected. So I don't think it's a case of the network being overused.

The problem is that my main PC can no longer connect to the Internet. Since I bought my laptop, I stopped using my main PC for Internet, so I have no idea when it first started, but I estimate it's been almost 2 months.

I noticed that the problem seems to be with the Sending/Receiving of Packets. It sends out plenty, but receives barely any at all.

My PC is a Pentium 4, 1.7Ghz, 512MB DDRAM running Windows XP SP2

I have a D-Link DI-713P router, and a cable broadband connection.

I have tried the standard Repairing the connection, to no avail.

I have tried unplugging both the modem and the router, reconnecting them, then rebooting the PC, also to no avail.

When I connect the PC directly to the modem, the Internet works perfectly, so it's definitely not a hardware problem. I had initially suspected it may be a network card problem.

A:Wireless Network fine, PC cannot connect...

The problem PC connects OK to the modem but not to the router? That implies a problem with the cable or the router's LAN port.

Or maybe with the router's ethernet switch--does anything connect successfully to the router by ethernet?

Hi there,

Not sure if this should be a networking or a operating system question, I guess it's a little of both.

Here's what's happening. I have a cable modem going to a wireless router. My PC(1) is plugged by wire into the router; another pc(2) and Mac Powerbook running wireless. Everything was running great until roommate was using PC1 a couple days ago. Now PC1 will not connect to anything but PC2 and laptop run fast and fine on wireless. I have cleaned with SpyBot and Ad-Aware, as well as Avg in Safe Mode and nothing comes up (usually that's all I have to do to fix it). I checked winipcfg and my network adapter is there with an ip address but if i release, it will not find another ip to renew. Also tried to restore to a couple days ago, no dice.

Here's where it get's weird. If I click just about any folder (my computer, my documents, my network), I get a fatel errod saying that Explorer has made a fatel error and will shut down. I click okay and it just goes back to the desktop, but doesn't shut down.

Roommate talked to ISP tech support (before i knew about the issue) and they were no help aside form wanting to send someone out, which i know is a waste of time since the connection to the modme is fine and that's all they will touch.

Anybody have any ideas? Computer with issue is running Win 98SE (I know I know...it sucks but i never use it anymore...that's why rommmate was using it. haha).

A:Wireless Network Works Fine, But Cant Get On Internet

How did you attempt to hook up so far? Did you try this:

start > control panel > network connections > wireless network setup wizard
~~~~~~
Or this on the host computer:

start > control panel . network connections > setup or change your work or home network setup
Run the wizard, choose "This computer connects directly to the internet. The other computers on my network connect to the internet through this computer"
~~~~~~~~

Wait a minute. Upon rereading your original post, I need to know what you are using a router for. Is it a wireless router? If so, then your new computer is not connecting to the internet through the 'host' computer, but rather through the router.

I shall await your answers.

We have a dlink dir635 router in our house which two computers connect to via wireless and two or three connect via a wire. The wireless network seems to disappear randomly. Sometimes it'll work for 10 minutes then go AWOL and sometimes it'll work for like a month or something with no problems.

This is only for the wireless users in the house - the network is 100% available to everybody on a wire.

Sometimes this can be fixed by resetting router. Sometimes not though - so I don't know for sure whether resetting the router does anything, it seems like an immediate cause and effect though when it does work.

Any ideas?

All computers are using windows xp home.

One of the wireless computers is a crusty old IBM thinkpad and my one is an Intel Q6600 2gb or ram etc etc.

I moved my room to where my cat5 cable can't get to so I decided to go wireless. I bought a belkin wireless card with 400ft range and it is 802.11g whatever that means and it says it transfers data up to 54Mbps using a 2.4ghz band. My internet surfing speed is the same with cable but gaming seems to slow down. I fired up Counterstrike for the first time and lagged out of the game. Is it the cards problem? Anyone recommend any other solution?

thanks
 

A:Wireless card is fine for surfing but not gaming

Hmmm.. the only couple things that I can think of is latency problems or port configuration.

I assume you were using a router before (with the cat5), so the port forwarding should be fine. Did you try playing the game on the wired (cat5) connection? How was the play?

The other thing that could be the problem is wireless interference. Since a lot of cordless phones run on the same frequency, that could be causing interference which leads to a slower signal. The other thing could be the distance you are from the access point.

However, since you said your internet runs at the same speed as the wired, that sort of baffles me. Do you have a firewall or anything on your system?

Can you go to these online internet speed tests for me? Let them run, and then report back the speed each one gives you. Thanks

Small home wireless LAN, Netgear WGR614v4 router, Using WPA, two XP machines, one Vista (home Basic ),

Stage 1) all working ok for many hours, except when
2) Vista machine goes to sleep mode. On wakeup, no connection. Network SSID is visible, good signal, but repeated attempts to connect fail.
3) Other computers connect to router, and internet fine. They can also standby/poweroff and restart fine. Still connected.
4) Reboot Vista computer, no help. Network settings look normal, just no connection to wireless router. Incredibly irritating Vista diagnostic tool suggests I connect to a another network, or recycle the router. (If the router was close enough to be easily recycled, I would just plug in an ethernet cable. But it is not, and I am tired of unnecessary trips to the basement.)
5) Power cycle router, and everything fine again.

Does not happen with every sleep cycle. No clue what makes it fail sometimes and not others.

Any suggestions? This happens about every other day, so of course, it will not fail when I want it to, but if anyone has an idea, I will get ready for the next breakage.

A:Wireless LAN fails, all parts work fine.

Just in case anyone else is having this problem, I found more information on the trigger--If Vista goes to sleep while Firefox is active, the connection is broken. The only way I have found to reconnect, is reboot the router.

If Firefox is closed first, before the Sleep mode, all is well. Restart Vista, the connection resumes fine. So, its a work-around, but I am even more confused as whats up. Firefox interfering with some Vista<->Netgear secret handshake?

Hi, I connect to a router which is connected to a cable modem. I can't get service but my brother can who has the wireless part. I did a ping test and got a reply. it said 4 sent 4 received 0% lost. I bought a new ethernet cable just in case it was that. And, in a fit of despondency, backed up all my files and did a system store back to factory settings since it is a dell to no avail. I tried repairing the connection and it said IP address couldn't be renewed and when I try to get on the net a little box says I have limited or no connectivity. Ipconfig says
no conection dns suffix

next line has 255.255.0.0
Since I am having to run from one computer to another, (in separate rooms) nice detailed instructions for what to try that I can print would be great. I am so bummed and I am hoping someone can shine some light on this. I am extremely computer literate when it comes to office software and the like but not so good with terminology so simple instructions would be great. To my knowledge, since I did the restore, I have no firewall in use, but have macafee virus protection. need anymore infoI will be around all day.
