local area connection icon access - non admin user in windows

Q: local area connection icon access - non admin user in windows

Hi,

Can we give the local area connection icon(which will be at the right end of the task bar) complete access to the local user which is not having admin privileges as we give some time and date permissions if required to the local user which is not having admin privileges like that.

Awaiting for the reply.

Preferred Solution: local area connection icon access - non admin user in windows

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 am having problems getting on the internet. In the network connection window there is no local area connection icon. I've gone through the connection wizard and it still doesn't show up.

This is a new install of XP, only the admin windows login exists and the network card appears in the device manger with no conflicts..

According to my ISP when we use the ipconfig/all cmd in dos I pull one of my ISP's IP addresses.

Hey, I have a Dell Windows Vista Inspiron 32-bit laptop and I just had internet installed today. The modem was not recognized by my computer. So I could not connect directly to the modem. Was wondering if this could be due to the fact that my Ethernet Controller driver is not working or is uninstalled. There is a yellow exclamation point next to it under the device manager.

My router is also not working. Thinking I might need another. Called the router company and they had me looking for the Local area connection icon under manage network connections and the only icon visible is a Dell wireless LAN mini card reader. So I can connect to the internet wireless but not through the modem itself. I still have a really bad internet connection and pages load extremely slow or does not load at all. I can receive internet wireless through someone else internet better than my own internet. Which is really sad. LOL

Help downloading the CORRECT Ethernet controller or getting the local area connection icon visible again would be greatly appreciated! :) I have already looked on Dell website I just don't know which one to download.

So about right now I feel like throwing this rig off a bridge.

I am simply trying to find my missing icon for the local area connection that goes to my Mb Ethernet .
I need to change the ip. It was around before but has gone missing.

I was trying to link up a network computer before and it all went down hill.

This is a fresh build, windows is no help

A:Local area connection icon missing

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

You mean it is missing in the Notification Area. I am sure that you have already checked that it is not amongst the hidden Icons.

Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center and click on Change Adapter Settings on the Left Pane. You shall find it there.

After booting up and the desktop appears, it takes 5 minutes or more for the Local Area Connection icon to appear in the system tray. Any attempt to use Firefox, IE, Outlook or another program that uses the connection just sits there until it decides that the connection is to appear. Any attempt to launch Control Panel > Network Connections likewise will just freeze until it is ready to go. Going into the CMD mode and doing entering ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew does not do anything to fix the problem. A review of running programs under Task Manager shows no running programs. Multiple processes are running, but I can not identify any bad actors. A review of the Performance tab and Networking tab show the computer is not loaded up at all, just kinda loafing along.

Any advice on how to track down what is causing the slowdown?

Thanks in advance for your help.

My network Icon in the system tray keeps flashing a notice that my "local area connection speed:100Mbps Status: Connected". Is my signal from my ISP an issue or is it a hardware problem (ie my network cable not getting a secure connection)?

I've unplugged and re-plugged the cable into the network port and noticed that it is a little wobbly in the slot. I moved it around until I got the lights to light up. Can a network slot get loose like this? It is the network jack that is on the motherboard in a Dell machine. If the jack is the problem, can just the integral network jack be replaced on a motherboard.
 

A:Local Area COnnection Icon Keeps Flashing

You can buy a seperate card for about $15-$25. Maybe even cheaper, haven't bought one in a while. Try using a different cable. It might be one of the connectors. It might also be whatever you have it connected to (router, cable modem).

I was just wondering what the 1394 Connection icon was next to my Local Area Connection 2 icon in the Network Connections folder on Windows XP. Could I somehow connect thru that? Also it is enable and says I am connected however there is 0 packets being sent and received? Should I disable this or does it matter?
 

A:What is the 1394 Connection icon next to my Local Area Connection 2?

You can disable it if you want. This is for your Firewire port on your PC/Laptop you can use this to interconnect between 2 firewire controllers that support this function. Its just another form of computer connecting like Ethernet, and wireless. and USB. and COM port.

A friend accidentally deleted my LAN icon and I can't seem to get it back. Unfortunately I cannot set up my brand new Linksys router while it's plugged into a brand new Ethernet cable.

Hi guys, I am new here, enjoing the forum, well about the problem...
I have 2 questions, but I will ask all of them because maybe they are connected somehow.

1). My local area connection in Network Connections sometimes just disappears, but it is not because of drivers, I have reinstalled them (I am using windows 7 btw). So the local
area connection sometimes just disappears for 2 days, and there is no sign of it even in device manager.

2). My laptop nic lights are on (yellow and green), whether cable is plugged or not, but I have internet.

- And just for information - I am using TP-LINK TL-WR841N (WI-FI is just awesome)
-It's funny but my icon is here again, in device manager too. But what to do with it? It disappears whenever it wants.

Did you pick hide inactive icons? It's possible the icon is hidden because nothing ever happens to it.
Right click your taskbar, and choose properties. Go to the notification area tab. Then either uncheck the box, or click on customize, and set it so that particular icon is not hidden.

I am using my wireless connection now but if I connect directly into the computer I have no connection. I have a Dell computer with Windows XP home edition service pack 1a. Any ideas how I can get my Local Connection back?

A:Local Area Connection missing after reinstalling windows

go into device manager and locate the network interface. Go to drivers and update drivers. Then it should be a matter of browsing to the correct location on the utilities cd to find the driver.

Alternately you can identify your make/model if OEM [like Dell] and go to there web site and download the driver. If home built you would go to the mainboard manufacturers site to download the same.

I'm hoping someone can clear this up for me. I just lost my internet this AM with Win10, so am running with wifi at present.

When I try to establish (or reestablish) my internet connection, it wants to steer me to a Broadband or WAN Miniport PPPOE connection, whereas before I had a Local Area connection to my Realtec nic connector on my Asus mother board. No matter what I do it says I'm not cabled up. That is no cat 5 ethernet cable plugged in. I'm using a cable I disconnect from a 2nd PC (Win10) that's on the internet just fine, and plug it into the "broken" PC it it claims "no cable" attached. ???

As far as I can tell the drivers are current and besides they worked just fine last night and for the last month.

So, looking at the attached screen grab, what's the difference in Windows parlance between these two connection types? I know what LAN and WAN mean but have no idea what a PPPOE miniport is and why I might want one. Since the Realtec "card" (not really a card because it's in the chipset) is what used to get me on the internet before this this AM, that's the one I want but Windows only gives me the option of setting up the broadband connection. But it's all "broadband", LAN, WAN, etc. That's what DSL is; high speed broadband.

How can I get the LAC installed from the cd or from a website that I can download from work onto my jumpdrive? Thanks!

BTW, I have uninstalled and installed again but no success.

My computer had 6 updates. Once updated. I lost my local area connection. Can someone please help. How do I create the local area connection???

A:Windows update deleted local area connection

Go to Start type in devmgmt.msc

locate your network adapter right click on it select properties then driver try rolling back the drivers.

Example below

Windows update might have downloaded and installed a network adapter driver that could have put your adapter out of wack,

Report back if this helps or not.

I have been having problems trying to connect to the internet on my pc. Up until awhile ago I was able to connect but suddenly I have been getting a limited or no connectivity on my ethernet connection. I originally had windows 7 on my pc. I had checked the router and the modem and reset them because I believed that was the problem but after that I still got a the limited or no connectivity.
I thought maybe the router or modem had broken or maybe the cable was faulty. So I had my friend bring his laptop and an extra cat5 cable. We pluged the laptop using his cable and my cable to the modem and it worked with the laptop. We tried again with the router and they both it worked with the laptop.

I thought maybe it was because I had gotten a virus on my computer. So I decided to a do full clean sweep on my computer and downgrade to windows xp, I got tired of windows 7 and saw this as a reason to make a clean break. As soon as windows xp had finish installing I got the same limited or no connectivity.

I checked the ethernet card on my pc and I decided to buy a new one and installed it. As soon as I finished installing it I got the same limited or no connectivity.

I have had all of the connection settings on auto detect and still no connection. I had copy the ip address and dns and gateway address from my friends laptop when he had it plugged into the router and modem and put them in my desktop and it gives me a connected status on my modem but it still won't let me get on the in...

A:limited or no connectivity to on local area connection (windows xp)

Are you getting a 0.0.0.0 ip address?

Have you connected your computer directly to the modem and than pwr-cycled (30 seconds power-downed)? Its unclear from what you posted above.

So I built a PC recently, using Powerline for Internet access. At first the PC wouldn't connect to the Internet so I moved the wireless router and the Powerline plug into another room and plugged them directly into the wall socket (previously they were plugged into an extension lead). I got Internet access on my PC, but 2 laptops and another PC were having trouble connecting to the Internet using Wi-Fi. When I moved the router and Powerline plug back to their original place, my PC wouldn't connect again (all other computers could) and I got the "Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration" error from the network troubleshooting tool.

So it's either I'm the only one that does get Internet when I move the router, or I'm the only one that doesn't get Internet when the router's in its normal place.

Here's my ipconfig /all results from my PC that won't connect:

A:Solved: Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration - Windows 7

you are doing actually doing two different things as far as i can make - is this correct

Move Powerline from an extension lead and it works - This is because some powerline adapters will not work on an extension lead - so thats (1) and

(2) moving the router is reducing the wireless signal

so you need to find a way to keep the router where it is and not use an extension lead- maybe a longer ethernet cable

from the wireless pcs can we see an xirrus screen shot - when its working OK and again when it is not - just in case its interference

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.

Hello,

I can't figure this problem out. I'm using windows XP on a Sony notebook with a DSL connection. All the IP addresses for my provider are entered correctly and were working fine. A few days ago I lost my ability to browse the internet and recieve my email through outlook express.

I keep checking the Network Connections, Local Area Connection Properties, and internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties which all confirm their connection. Even the windows icon in the lower right corner confirms connection.

I've tried IE's properties and Outlook's too, but I could be missing something.

Oddly, Limewire is was still able to download, but I uninstalled it to see if that was interfering.

Please help, the Internet is my life!

So a new box recently built, when booted, defaults to the local administrator account.

This is a Windows 7 machine for a Linux guru that doesn't want to be bothered pressing more buttons than is necessary, if you get my drift.

So my question is, after pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del...how do I dictate to Windows that the preferred used is "HisDomainAccount" on our company domain, as opposed to the local admin account?

If I'm not being clear, please let me know and I will try to explain a little better.

The above is a bit confusing. Is this computer joined to a work domain or is it not?

If this is a domain computer, the user will have to use the classic log on screen (Ctrl+Alt+Delete), not the Welcome Screen. If he wants to switch to logging in to the Local computer account and not the domain, he'll have to "Switch User" then log in with the format of Computername\User Name
