Ethernet and usb not working on startup

Q: Ethernet and usb not working on startup

I dont know if this is in the right section but I am using windows 7 and when i start my computer everything works fine until the windows logon screen when the mouse and keyboard stop working. Both are usb and my ps/2 is working fine. I went into device manager and my ethernet and usb drivers had exclamation points on them and the issue was that they could not start. I disabled and re-enabled all of these and they now work 100% until i restart my computer again then i have to continue the process. Any help would be appreciated thanks!

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Ethernet and usb not working on startup

once you are on the device manager, right click and uninstall drivers if you have an option, it will be out of the list after that, and re-scan for devices or reboot the PC for Windows to automatically install drivers for USB ports..

Hi,

I have a linksys model wrt54gl v1.1 and I am using Windows Vista 32bit Home Edition. I have a pc connected to the router directly through an ethernet plus a laptop, 2 iphones and a blackberry that get wireless internet from it. 2 days ago wireless stopped working. The internet on the pc connected to the router by ethernet is still working and the power, WLAN, ethernet, and internet lights are all lit green. The internet and ethernet lights flash when data is being transferred but the the WLAN light is not flashing. I have restored the router to factory default but it is still not working. The phones and laptop are not detecting any wireless network present. Hope you can help.

I decided to update some of my drivers and decided to start with the Marvel Yukon Ethernet controller. I downloaded the latest version from Marvel which is 11.45.4.3. Prior to installing I uninstalled the old version, 11.45.1.3 and then installed the new. I rebooted and found that I did not have internet connection. I went to Device manager and found that Ethernet Controller #2 had the "!" on it so I did some checking. I went to Properties and found this message :see screenshot
I closed out of device manager and restarted the computer. After restart I had internet connection. I rechecked Device manager and everything was fine. Just to see what would happen I shut down the computer and restarted. After restart I did not have internet connection. I checked device manager and again I got the same message as in the screenshot. Again I just restarted the computer and again I had internet connection. Feeling that maybe the driver download was bad I decided to re install my old Ethernet Controller. Needless to say I had to uninstall the newer drivers and I re installed the old driver. I rebooted and again I had no internet connection and again I got the same message as in the screen shot and again if I just restart the computer I can get internet connection but if I shutdown and start I have no internet connection.

Hello Techsupporters!

When I boot my computer and load on Windows 7 Ultimate, I get this problem:
First my PC starts searching for an ethernet cable, then says it is disconnected. An exclamation mark in a yellow warning sign follows (down where the connection icon is) and then it all goes back to normal and i can access the internet and LAN. This takes approx. 20-30 seconds to be done.

While this was not a big problem, when I load up on Ubuntu, the notifications go: connected,disconnected,connected,disconnected and so on at irregular timing. And it goes on forever.

I reinstalled the Network Adapted Driver, reset BIOS defaults, but nothing seems to help.
Can you help me locate the issue and fix it?
Thanks in advance?

A:Ethernet cable not recognized at Startup

You might have a dodgy (bad) cable which is causing the problem. Try using a different Ethernet cable and see if this helps, you could also try using a different port on your switch.

I recently had some problems with my on board ethernet where it was locking up my entire system. This was eventually pinned down and I put an SMC PCI Ethernet 10/100 Card into my machine which fixed the problem.

However I've had a different problem ever since. Whenever I boot (or reboot) my computer, the Ethernet connection doesn't work for a good one to two minutes after start up. No amount of attempting to disable/re-enable the connection, or using that Windows Repair My connection thing will fix this and I just have to wait. Windows says it is connected but it doesn't work and then after a mintue or so it says the connection is disconncted, then it reconnects within a second or two and then will it work.

After this the connection is perfectly stable until the next time I start Windows. Also I don't have this problem on my brother's computer which connects to the same 4-port router.

Are there any Windows / software settings I can try changing before I try swapping it out for another Ethernet card?

Most of this probably isn't relevant but I'll list it all anyway...

Hi guys,
I did something really dumb, clicked on "Uninstall" in Control Panel, of my Atheros AR8152 PCI-E V3.2.

Was actually looking for something else, (an annoying toolbar), and thought that was it. Was only after a second or so, I realized it was the wrong thing, clicked "cancel", window box still asked if it was to be deleted on next start up, and stupidly I clicked "yes".
Obviously I don't want this, can this be reversed?

Win 7, on a Toshiba L655.

Carl.

I have computer that uses Realtek ethernet card connected to Netgear Router...

Everything works fine, no disconnecting and stuff. The only problem I have is that everytime I boot my computer, just before windows starts my realtek ethernet card starts to initialize and look for IP and DHCP..and it takes about 1 minute while it sets itself...

Somewhere long time ago I read that there should be a workaround for this. Instead of letting ethernet card obtain IP automatically (thus making it extremely slow) you can configure IP manually in ethernet card so this way there wouldnt be time consuming detection(initialization)...

If someone could tell me how to solve my problem or give link to sites - Id appreciate it..Already searched google and stuff - did not find anything...Kthx.

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.

Looking at the Event Viewer after a given crash, there weren't any error or warning messages logged.

All the above looks good. Using 192.168.0.1 as a URL in your browser, you should get a request for the user/password for that router. Once you login, you can go to the WiFi portion, enable it, set the SSID and encryption you desire.

All of a sudden my computer started taking 30-40 seconds for Windows to start loading after the BIOS display. I noticed a 3 second message on the screen that said "Realtek PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Boot Agent, Press Shift-F10 to Configure".

Hi all - I have Win7 Ultimate 64bit and my ethernet pci card DLink DFE-530TX+ (rev F) doesn't recognize the broadband connection on bootup. I have to disable it in the device manager and then re-enable it. Then the broadband connection works.

I have the latest driver, from the DLink site, which is specifically for Win7: 1.12.0.1 (10/12/2009)

I put in the ethernet card as a workaround, because the onboard ethernet device had exactly the same problem. It is a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller. I got the latest driver from Realtek (7.26.902.2010 - dateed 9/2/2010) but like the DLink, when I first boot up, it does not recogize the broadband internet connection.

I had hoped the PCI card would not experience the same problem -but it does.

Vista Ultimate 64-bit, ASUS Rampage Formula motherboard, USB mouse and keyboard connected in back ports.

Two things happened: Avira antivirus warned me of some threats which I either ignored or deleted. Windows Update had some updates ready (although I'm not sure if it updated).

I turned off my PC for a couple of hours, turned it back on and realized that my USB keyboard was not working on the password screen.

I eventually unplugged it from the back and plugged it into the front, where it worked. However, my USB mouse did not work when plugged into the second front port, nor did it work when plugged into the front port in which the keyboard worked.

I accessed System Restore using my keyboard and restored to one day previously. When it finished, both keyboard and mouse worked, although I got a pop-up message alerting me that the "drivers for your device could not be installed." When I clicked "OK," the mouse stopped working again.

I have checked BIOS and both mouse and keyboard are recognized, so it does not appear to be a hardware issue.

hello, if anyone can help me out, it would be fantastic.

I installed these programs that create a virtual drive on your computer (install drivers and all) so that you can burn cds to the image drives. There were three in all, one was called "noteburner" and another called "sharedrm.." the other i dont remember at all but its icon was an ipod looking thing i think.
i uninstalled these programs and restarted my computer
upon restarting computer, the loading of windows lagged for a long time and then eventually the comp would just restart.
i also started getting the blue screen of death (fatal error) here and there.
after some working around with the computer i managed to get it to boot up again to find that i no longer had sound and my ethernet adapter was not working. Also, the drivers for those virtual drive programs were still in my device manager and in the registry.. i manually deleted all of them and everything from my registry with their names. (i contacted their techservs - and they had no idea)
also, it createed a driver in the network adapters tab called "direct parallel" which i deleted raspti.sys and ptlink.sys (it's two driverfiles) manually - everytime i tried to uninstall normally, there was a message that said "cannot unistall, this device may be needed for the computer to boot" - somewhere in the mess of things i ended up reinstalling service pack 2 as...

My ethernet is not working but my wifi on the same computer is working(using wifi to post this). I attached an image of my resource monitor it shows me trying to download. The weird part is sometimes it goes up to my normal speed(32mb/s) for like 4 seconds and then it drops to not working at all and when I try to load a website I have to refresh a few times and pray.

I tried connecting the wire to my laptop (same wire and wall port) and it works fine. I ran malwarebytes and found one threat but the problem was not solved. I ran it again a few more time and it says I don't have anything else.

Hi there!

I have no experience at all with computers/connection issues, so apologies for my poor use of terminology.

I live in the Bay Area and I have xfinity/Comcast.

Around a week ago, I stopped being able to connect to Ethernet. After troubleshooting, I found that the error was "One or more network protocols are missing" or "Windows Sockets Empty".

I have already tried the following things:
1. Reset my computer / made sure all the cords were plugged in
2. Did a "netsh" in command prompt to reset my IP
3. Gave "Full Control" to everyone in folder 26 in my Registry Editor
4. Did a "netsh" to reset my winsocks
5. Disabled NETBIOS on both wifi/ethernet

I also couldn't find any new drivers...

Each time I tried one of these fixes, I would have ethernet for ~5 minutes after I restarted my computer. Afterwards, it would instantly disconnect me and connect me back to WiFi.
After I tried disabling WiFi, my ethernet connection would still dc, but I would simply have to troubleshoot it, and would work again after restarting my adapter.

Is there any way for me to fix problem for good? My WiFi cuts off really randomly from time to time and that's really frustrating..

If there's anything I missed please let me know and I'll try to provide it!

Thank you so much!

My ethernet cable connects to an RJ45 port, where there is a cable running underneath the carpet to the router.

I'm having a very similar problem. I can connect wirelessly using my laptop to the internet through my netgear router, but not using my desktop. The desktop is plugged in directly to the router through the ethernet port, but the router light indicating a wired connection isn't lighting up. I've tried installing the router software on the desktop (running winXP), but the installation won't complete as it can't detect the router.

Device manager says that the adaptor is working properly, but the icon in systray says that a network cable is unplugged. I've tried 4 different cables, so I don't think they're to fault.

When I open the command prompt on my desktop and type ipconfig /all:

"... ethernet connection seems to have suddenly crapped out" implies
1. bad ethernet adapter,
2. bad ethernet cable, or
3. bad something at the other end of the cable.

Can you try another cable?

Can you try something different at the other end of the cable (e.g., if it was a router, try a different LAN port)?

Can you try the same setup but with a different computer?

I have a cable that goes from my main router and to the secondary router, if i stretch that into my room it will allow me to get internet Access, so the problem isnt my main router. My Ethernet port on the computer is blinking green some times aswell, but i get no firm Connection. I also do not have a default Gateway.

Additional info: when my internet stopped working, i looked into my Device manager and found pseudo tunneling Interface With a yellow exclamition mark. I uninstalled it in hope that it would be reinstalled and making my computer work aagain, but it didnt get reinstalled ;(

Ty for the help, much appreciated.

A:Ethernet not working!

The Pseudo Tunneling Interface is for IPv6, which is not used currently for Internet Access. When you right click this yellow flag and Uninstall it , it should not come back.
If you have no other yellow flags in the Device Manager, then to test your internet connection, plug this computer directly into the Main Router rather then the secondary one.
Then follow these instructions Pre-posting Requirements - for both Wired and Wireless Connectivity Issues and paste your ipconfig log in your next post.

On Startup, after POST, I get this BSOD:

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
The verification of a knownDLL failed. system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc000012f (0x00360bf0 0x00000000).
The system has shut down.

Upon Reboot, I am advised to go to the startup repair. I select my language, but then it asks me to select an operating system, and Windows 7 is not there. If I run DISKPART it does not detect my hard drives, yet they show up fine in the BIOS and in the Intel RST RAID configuration screen. (2x 240 GB SSD RAID 0) I also have a 2TB HHD that windows cant seem to detect but is showing up everywhere else.

The HHD's purpose was to be the back-up for the Raid array....too bad i never actually backed anything up! Boy do I regret that now.

This build has been running fine for a few months until now. It was last working about a week ago and it downloaded an update for windows. I posponed the restart for 30 minutes or so to finish up a game I was playing and then shut it down for the night. When I turned it on the next morning, this happened.

I have Updated the BIOS to the most current version, as well as the SSD firmware. No change whatsoever.

I am pretty desperate here trying to avoid formatting BY ALL MEANS POSSIBLE. So, any advice is welcome!

A:BSOD on Startup - Startup Reapir not working

Hi,


Code:

Stop message 0xC000021A Descriptive text: FATAL_SYSTEM_ERROR
Usual cause: The Windows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly.
If you are unable successfully boot into Windows because of the BSOD error, Windows has an option to reload registry information from the last successful boot. To revert to the last successful boot:
1. Reboot the computer.
2. Near the end of the BIOS messages or graphic, but well before anything appears from Windows, press the F8 key. You may only have a few seconds to get the right spot to press F8 before it attempts to go into Windows. If the BIOS complains about a pressed key or asks you to go into BIOS setup, you've pressed F8 too soon (Don't go into BIOS setup).
3. When successful, you should see a black screen with white text "Windows Advanced Options". Use the up or down arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration and press Enter.

Advanced Boot Options

If you have the Windows 7 installation cd, insert that in computer and boot up with it:
1. Go into the Windows Recovery Environment by selecting the option to repair your Windows at startup.
2. After it has completed the startup repair, click link that says "View Advanced Options for system recovery and support".
3. A list of options appears. click the command prompt and then type chkdsk f//r. Let that run (it may take a while).

I just installed DSL service for a friend. The Ethernet port is not working. She has a Dell Deminsion with Windows XP (I know it is the port because I brought over my laptop and connected fine). Is there a way to fix this or do I have to install a Ethernet PCI card? Thank you

You mentioned your laptop has Internet connectivity, so why not download drivers from there? If you have a spare flash drive, download the TSG System Information Utility to it, run it on the defective computer, save the output on the flash drive, and then post it back to this thread. It'll give us more of an idea what we're working with here, since you haven't given any information yet regarding the OS and hardware.

When i run ipconfig on win7 it says media disconnected. The card is a realtek pcie gbe family controller. Wireless works just fine. I have tried resetting winsock to no avail. I have also tried reinstalling the drivers and this also did not work. I dual boot win7 and ubuntu 12.04 and the problem persists between both of them. I ran ping 127.0.0.1 and it was successful so it should not be a hardware problem. Could it possibly be an issue with bios?

Hi Sssstud,

Please let us know the message you see when you try to establish a wireless connection to the internet. Is your computer able to detect wireless networks? What version of Windows are you using and what is the model and name of the wireless router?

After a recent failure of the wireless router the laptop refuses to connect to Ethernet LAN wired network.Even after a full format of HDD and reinstallation of OS (Windows XP).The Ethernet driver downloaded from HP (compaq) support did not worked,also if  I let windows (from Wireless connection that worked) search for and install Ethernet adapter.The LAN connection can not receive any data (on status has received 0 - at any time)Can not receive IP from router, and if I set an IP (manual) and ping to Gateway (router) obtain 0 packets received.I have a good network and everything works but for this (2 there are 2 identical) Compaq 6820s.I tested LAN of the Compaqs with a Live Linux CD and it worked OK. So it is about Windows, drivers, or virus.Please help!

Hi guys, first post here. I don't know much about tech so joined here for help. I moved into a new house (rented) and we have virgin media internet with their infamously reliable super hub

I can connect to the internet fine with an ethernet cable but only get "local" access when attempting with wifi. My friend can get on wifi fine on his laptop and my wifi works fine on other networks which leads me to believe its just some settings that need changing. I will try to attach a picture of my ipconfig with wifi switched on and no ethernet cable in.

Any help on this would be much appreciated, I've googled for hours and hours but nothing anyone suggests on there has worked for me.

Cheers for any replies

Alrighty. A friend of mines internet just stopped working a few nights ago. I went to her dorm and checked her settings and connections, all fine. Tried plugging her PC into her roomates ethernet box thing and it didn't work, tried a different cable and that didn't work either. She has a Dell laptop, it looks kinda old, thats all I really know.

My question is, is there a free diagnostics tool I could burn onto a cd then run on her laptop to see if it can determine the problem? Like I said, it suddenly stopped working aparently, and using the roomates cable/ethernet jack didn't solve anything, so it looks like a hardware problem.

Thanks for any help, I'd love to save her the trouble of paying for someone to look at it.

Edit: I forgot to mention what the PC is saying. Under device manager it shows the ethernet card working normally, but it says its unplugged. I have also deactivated the card, and reactivated it to no avail. Again after changing cables and replugging everything it the PC says a network cable is unplugged, but its not! Thanks

I recently bought a netgear router. The problem is, that it will not connect to my laptop. I believe that the main reason why is not connecting is because my ethernet cable is not working properly. For example, when I try to connect my modem to my laptop via ethernet, it will notice it but it will tell me that it is an unidentified network. For this reason I have to use my usb cable which is working fine. I think this is really weird because if the ethernet calbe wouldnt be working my laptop wouldnt even notice it. I tried downloading some ether drivers but I still cannot conect.... this is the version of my ethernet thing marvell yukon 88e8039 pci-e fast ethernet controller.

Please let me know what can I do.
 

A:ethernet connection not working....

First off, how about the EXACT make/model of the modem and the router. You do realize that when you change from the USB connection to the Ethernet connection on most modems that you MUST cycle power on the modem, right?

I have an old Thinkpad R52 here, and I just reloaded Windows XP Professional on it. OEM disc. I've downloaded the drivers from IBM's official page at:http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-58931Using my other computer I downloaded various drivers onto a USB drive and copied them to the laptop's desktop, then installed them. Strangely, none of them seem to do anything, though. The install process for each works fine and reports no errors, but after restarting, the audio and Ethernet controllers are still unknown in the device manager.ThanksEDIT: I figured it out. The installers didn't work for some reason, but I was able to manually select the drivers from the folders that the installers extracted to.

Iíve been happily using 2Mb broadband through BT for the last 3-4 months or so, but now Iím trying to set up a network for another 2-3 computers to share it Iím running into trouble. I bought a 30m ethernet cable on ebay (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6785598902&rd=1&sspagename=STRK:MEWN:IT&rd=1), but the weird thing is that while itíll work fine if itís connecting my computer to the router, it wonít work with any of the other 3 computers in the house Ė their ethernet ports donít light up green and the computers seem unaware its plugged in to them and unable to detect the router.

My computerís 3Com Gigabit NIC card works with it fine, while the Q-Tek card (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5790017542&rd=1&sspagename=STRK:MEWN:IT&rd=1) I bought wonít work. Neither will the ethernet ports (unknown make offhand) built into the other two computers in the house work with the long 30m cable, but having just about managed to stretch the old short cable I had to one of them that I fitted with the Q-Tek card, it works fine with that.

Is looks like the cable was at fault afterall. Should I just pay for another one and hope that works? Did I buy the wrong sort of cable and if so, what sort should I look for?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions / replies (housemates are getting a bit irritated with the whole thing now so advice would be really useful!)Ö

the Intel(R) 82567LF gigabyte connection 2 says (in "properties") :"windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it"

"......windows cannot load the drivers for this device (code 31) " ????

same for Intel(R) 82567LF gigabyte connection

and Intel(R) 82579LM gigabyte connection says all is "...installed correctly" ? but no Ethernet connection, wireless only.

Tried re-naming Ethernet from "unknown" to "Local Area Connection" and computer said..."cannot use because that name is already being used" ? yet nowhere do I see any other 'local area connection' ?

Try disabling the wifi and see if it'll connect. If not. Then download latest drivers for wired network card. Remove any software related to the wired network card, then uninstall via device manager. Say yes if it asks to delete drivers. Reboot and reinstall.
