Q: Loca Area Connection Problem/Network Problem

Greetings folks,

This is my first post , so Hi to all.

I got a network/connection problem.I formatted my pc today because when i turned it on , it gave the windows screen and then it said that it can;t access the " SYSTEM " folder , so i formatted it since it's been a while since i've done that ( like a year and a half ).After that , I tried connecting to the internet by inserting the ip address numbers and the DNS ( I use cable connection ) , it didnt work , then i tried chanding the network card number , it worked , for like 30 minutes but then it stoped , it said " network cable is not plugged " or something like that , but then it plugged ( i dont know how ),but no internet connection ... so i went to check for the network cards and there was like 2 or 3 of them ( NIC i guess it was written ), i tried uninstalling them , but it didnt work , so i disabled them , but still , there was no internet connection. I tried ipconfig/all / renew /etc... but still , NO PROGRESS. So if you may PLEASE help me in this , cuz im supposed to give my final thesis at the university at the end of this month . Thanks in advance

Oh and also , stuff like Local Area Connection , 2 , 3 , 4 ,5 ,6 , 7 started appearing :S

Preferred Solution: Loca Area Connection Problem/Network 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: Loca Area Connection Problem/Network Problem

Are you getting any 'link light' on the card you plug the cable into? Usually a little green light or Amber I think it is on Dell. If you are not I suggest trying a different cable from your modem to your PC.

Also, is your PC directly connected to the modem or into a router?

And when setting your IP address are you going to Start --> Control Panel --> Network Connections?

Hello, I am running the Windows XP operating system.

My internet connection has gotten unbelievably slower in the past couple of days and i noticed that when i check under network connections and check the status of my Local Area Connection the numbers for my sent and received packets are much, much, higher than they ever were before. It seemed to me like they never used to surpass 3 digits but now they are frequently in the tens of thousands, with the number of received packets disproportionately higher than the number of sent packets. My computer is connected to a router and there are two others computers on this network. Does anyone recognize any potential problem from the symptons?

I also tried doing system restore from about 10 different restore points and got a "restoration incomplete" message every time. But that's a problem for a different board.

Thanks,
Jon.

Well, if you can connect wireleslly then you don't need to local area connection which is the ethernet port on your laptop. If it bothers you, just disable the ethernet controller in device manager.

Hi, I just changed Internet providers and I now have to use the local area icon to disconnect. Well even when I am online it has the red X on the icon and says A Network Cable is Unplugged. How do I get this fixed????I am running XP.
 

A:Problem W/ Local Area Connection

I guess the cable is connected
Well.. Check the IP Settings and make sure you follow the instructions you've got from you isp. I suppose they use a DHCP Server and suggest you check that your computer don't use a static address.

To check IP Settings:
rightclick My Network Places and choose Properties.
rightclick Local Area Connection and choose Properties.
click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then click Properties.
then choose Obtain IP Address Automatically and click OK.
click OK again.

After that,
click Start/Run.
Enter: CMD and click OK.
Enter (in black box): ipconfig /renew and press Enter.

If you've got a new IP Address then you're up and running.
If you don't get an address, then I guess we have a problem.

I recently tried to install PCSync onto my new XP system and the cable adapter drivers won't install, so now whenever I reboot the OS asks me if I want to install the drivers from disc or search the internet for them neither which work.

I just want to uninstall the network connection for the cable. It's a LAN connection for a serial cable for Laplink (parent company) but when I delete the connection I can no longer connect to the internet for some reason.

Could you be of some assistance in this matter?

Thanks in advance.

Hey guys,
 
I've recently been having a problem with my Local Area adapter. Every time I plug my charger in, the internet disables itself. Troubleshooting, enabling the adapter with admin priviledges, and resetting my physical router all do not work, and I have to restart my computer. When I do, it freezes at the shutdown screen, and I have to force shut down. When I restart my computer, the internet works just fine. Trying to enable the Adapter when the internet is down doesn't work, because it freezes, and troubleshooting "can't identify the problem."
 
Things I have tried already:
 
1. Downloading the mot current adapter drivers
2. Enabling the Local Area Connection Adapter when I DO have internet access
3. Checking to see if I have any power-saving features turned on (I do not--all of the boxes are checked in Power Management options)
 
I also noticed that in Device Managers, the WiMAX reports that the driver software isn't installed, even though I just installed the most recent.
 
Thanks in advance for your help!

I recently installed Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 on my computer and am now having a problem with my internet connectivity. When I run the Windows 7 Troubleshooter I get the message that says that 'There might be a problem with the driver for the Local Area Connection Adapter'. I have attempted many things to fix this.

I have uninstalled the drivers for the Network Adapter and that didn't fix it

I have run sfc/scannow and that didnt fix it

I tried ipconfig /dnsflush that didnt work

I cannot use ipconfig /renew and /release because it is not connected to the internet.

System restore will not work because there are no restore points.

I uninstalled Kaspersky and disabled Windows firewall hoping it might be a firewall issue. I also used their uninstaller that was recommended on Kaspersky's site.

I installed a USB wireless network adapter which changed the message from 'Local Area Connection Adapter to 'Wireless Area Connection adapter'.

Please help, I do not want to reinstall windows. If anyone has any advice that can help please let me know.

A:There might be a problem with the driver for the Local Area Connection

You said you uninstalled the drivers for your NIC, did you reinstall them, preferably the latest version of them ?? That should trigger a refresh of your IP stack in the event it's glitched.

OK
whats the wifi/NIC card on the machine. Have you installed a deiver? go into device manager by typing device manager in search and go to the network tab. expand it aand your wired, and wireliss devices should be there. If they arent or if either have a yellow triangle on them you need to re-install the driver.

Let us know the results

Hi,

I hope someone can help with this because i am going stare crazy with this.
Last night i used my computer and surfed the web as normal without any issues. I go to bed, get up in the morning and notice my pc has rebooted. I think nothing of it as i thought it was just an update. I go to work, come home and log in. I try to get on internet and nothing. Red x down the bottom corner in the network toolbar. Ok, ill open it up and fix it, ive done it many times before. However this time it won't work, i get the following message:

The wired network adapter is experiencing problems.

So i click next in the diagnostics tool and when it gets to troubleshooting has completed i get the following message:

problems found
there might be a problem with the driver for the local area connection adapter

I have rebooted, restored to a previous point changed cables etc but to no avail. I checked the driver in device manager to make sure it was the right one and was working and it all seems fine.

Ive had a read through here hoping i could find someone else who has had the same problem but the only one i found had internet access but not fully. I have no internet access, ive even tried connecting wirelessly to my router but that doesnt work.

Im currently on my laptop which is work btw.

I have been having problem connecting to my wireless modem through LAN cable out of a sudden 4 weeks ago.

Whenever I try to connect now, it will say "acquiring network address" and it will subsequently fail or says "limited or no connectivity". I've tried repairing the connection but it doesn't seem to work.

To check whether it is the problem with my modem, I have tested using my wireless connection and it seems to work fine. I've also ping 127.0.0.1 and got the response immediately.

A:Problem with Local Area Network

The symptoms are you have either a driver issue, bad cable, bad port on the router, or a bad NIC.

I'd start by reloading the NIC drivers, if that doesn't do it, use a new cable and a new port on the router. If all else fails, you'll need a new NIC. Since that would be part of the motherboard, let's hope it's not the NIC.

I got a new 2Wire modem from Bell the other day and set it up just fine. I am connected wirelessly to the new modem and it works perfectly. I also have an ethernet cable connecting my computer to my modem as well but it seems that the computer can't pick up the internet through the cable.
The computer picks up the wired connection as an Unidentified network and has access to Local only. When I disconnect from the wireless connection, the computer tries to reidentify the wired network and labels it with limited connectivity without any access to the Internet. From time to time it also flashes a connection to a second network through the ethernet cable though it's probably confused.
The same ethernet cable and computer worked fine with my old router and modem. It recognized that the wired and wireless connection were from the same network, so it's not likely it's a problem with the hardware.
In short, I need the Local Area Connection network to work.
I've tried updating the driver for the ethernet network adapter.
Suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Upgraded to window 7 64 bit from vista 32 bit. Did the custom install like it said. With Vista I had 6GB of memory in computer and it showed all 6 in the system information and everything worked fine(yes I know it wasn't using all 6gb). After the windows 7 64 bit install if I put more then 3gb in my local area connection will not configure a valid IP address and windows turns off my video card(gts450) because it says there is a hardware problem(card is fine tested on another computer). If I just have 3gb installed the local area connection is fine and so is the video card. My system is 64 bit cpable and the motherboard supports up to 8gb. Max memory was unchecked but now I have to have it checked and maxed at 4096 to make my video card work and get the local area connection configure an IP. The ram sticks are fine, I have used all of them in diffrent configuraions for the 3gb(2-2gb 2-1gb). I have tried everything I can find on the web about anything remotely resembling this to no success. My BIOS does not have a memory remapping feature but again if 6gb was working fine on a vista 32bit OS why won't they work on a 7 64 bit? I even called microsoft tech support about the local area connection problem and they couldn't figure it out. Any ideas would be helpful.

A:Problem with local area connection and video card with more then 3gb

More info please,

Motherboard model number, what memory you have and what timings they have,

If the timings are different then this could be the main cause, remember Vista didnt use all 6 gig so thus ignoring the ones that are faulty and using the ones that are ok too use.

Hello, my laptop works fine with a wireless connection, but now that my wireless router does not work i resort to connecting with a wired connection.

When i'm in the Network connections window, it says that the Local area connection is enabled (RealTek PCIe GBE Family Controller)

However, i'm still not connected to the internet. When i diagnose the LAC it says There might be a problem with the driver for the Local Area Connection adapter.

I have tried ipconfig /all, it shows media disconnected for everything.

I have also tried putting the installation disc that came with the laptop, went to drivers, Realtek, setup, but still does not work.

Anyone know the problem? Thanks for your time.

Hi there and thank you for taking the time to help folks like us.

recently had a virus which was resolved here and fully cleaned by a professional. However, there are still some issues from that the virus left behind. I've been told my computer is fully cleaned from all viruses and they are unable to figure out how to solve this issue. I'm unable to disable my Local Area Network. I was able to before the virus hit me but after getting it fixed, it doesn't allow me anymore. Here is the exact error message:

"Error Disabling Connection- It is not possible to disable the connection at this time. This connection may have one or more protocals that do not support Plug-and-Play, or it may have been initiated by another user or system account."

The virus itself installed a Layed Service Protocal which was use by the hacker to get information off my computer. I believe LSPFix was used to help fix that and restore my normal connection. I'm thinking the hacker changed one of my settings somewhere such that I'm no longer able to disable my connection or corrupted something. I'm admin on my account so I should have sufficient rights to disable it.


Also, I'm having problems with Windows Update. I can't seem to "install" patch KB931784. When I download it from Windows Update, it says it installs successfully and is found in my update history as being successfully installed.

Leave it running for some time and see if it drops. Just minimise the command window and get them to use QB again. Check the ping test when they lose QB connectivity.

What are you asking about with regards to "Local Area Network Connection"? If you have cable broadband service, you have an ethernet cable somewhere between your modem, router, and/or computer.

I used to have a network, with this computer being the client pc, but once my bro moved away, he took his computer, therefore we no longer have a network. But the problem is that ever since he left, this computer still thinks its apart of a network (I'm guessing that diagonsis) and I have to have "Local Area Connection Internet" turned on to turn on my actual internet connection. Also, as you would guess "Local Area Connection Internet" has the error message "Limted or no connectivity". So if anybody can tell me how I can use my internet without haveing to turn on "Local Area Connection Internet" I would be grateful.

I'm not so great with networking, but I'm pretty sure there is a simple way to fix this problem.

Thanks.

I'm running XP Service Pack 3 and i'm having difficulty connecting to the internet via a router type item. I'm not exactly sure. It's a Roger's Gateway something or other. There are two pc's attached to it and the one upstairs has internet but the main pc downstairs doesn't. Near my clock two little pc icons pop up and it says "Acquiring Network Address" which tells me I might have a problem with my network card. I've already tried going into the command prompt and renewing my ip address but that isn't working either. Says something wrong with the rtc server. I'm not entirely sure what that is. Also, my network is connected and working but still can't get online. Also, my ethernet card is a sis pci900 if you needed to know. Any help getting back online would be greatly appreciated. Also before I forget, an error message popped up saying it can't find a win32 stock something or other.

Hello, I hope someone can help me. I am on a Gateway Solo 600 XL, running XP Home SP1. I started having trouble with my Local Area Connection and after trying ipconfig/release/renew as well as reconfiguring TCP/IP (properties dialogue box remained shaded, therefore I was not allowed to make ny changes at all) I tried uninstalling the device. After rebooting the system, a yellow exclamation point appears in the device manager at my network adapter (Intel Pro/100 VE Network Connection). I receive the following error: This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31). When I try to uninstall again, I am told the the device was not able to unistalled because it may be needed in order to boot. I've tried downloading updated drivers and using the Recovery CD to no avail. At the time, I did try the Google Desktop Search but abandoned it before it ever finished trying to index my hard drive. I used the Google troubleshoot network program to undo any changes made and return my configuration to its original state but still no Local Area Connection. I know that it has to be something stupid that I am overlooking. I would appreciate any help anyone could provide.
 

A:Cannot load Local Area Network Connection

i would open up the tower and take off the network card.

then boot up the computer as it is (without the nic card)

then shut down.... put the nic card back on (on a different slot if possible)
and then boot up again....

try installing the drivers again if it needs them but xp should auto-install everything 4 u.

if it continues troubling u try changing the network card itself as it my be faulty
