Ethernet not working

Q: Ethernet not working

Hello. Ive ran into a problem which i pretty much caused myself, i tried to update my ethernet drivers in the device manager but i fatfingered it and pressed uninstall device (yup, clicked twice even to it warned since im dumb) Now that i tried to reinstall it, it just presents a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark on top of it. Ive scouted all over internet for a answer but so far nothing has worked. Anyone know how to fix this?

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.)

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.

The only other thing to try is to unplug the router for a few hours. You could also try another factory reset.

My wireless is not working. I have tried looking at comments on line but nothing seems to work!
If I use the CMD code I get this for the ether net:
ipv4: 94.205.214.13
subnet: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 94.205.214.1

I have a sitecom router if that helps at all? It says to go to 192.168.0.1 which I have done but sdtill confused!Thanks in advance
 

A:Wireless not working, ethernet is working

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.

Where do you get stuck?

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.

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!

The link that shows up on your post - "I also couldn't find any new drivers..." - If you posted that intentionally, do not use the 'driver updater' program it links to. It's malware. My question would be who is the oem of your computer, and which LAN card make/model?

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.

I have no idea what's (kinda computer noob) going on so any help would help.

My ISP troubleshooting help line could not tell me anything beyond it being an ethernet problem.

Any help troubleshooting and re-establishing is much appreciated.
 

A:Ethernet not working...

"... 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'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 adaptor local area connection:

media state: ...... media disconnected
description:...... SiS900 pci fast ethernet adaptor
physical address:... 00-14-85-6F-AE-05

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.s. When I plug my laptop in to the router using the ethernet cable, the router's light comes on, showing that it is connected.

Hello, i have a desktop computer which used to get internet from a secondary router we had. It is a Jensen Scandinavia. One day when i logged onto my computer i noticed i had no internet, and it hasnt returned since that. It shows a yellow exclamition point by the internet icon, and says no internet Access. My secondary router Works fine With everything else than my computer, both wifi and Ethernet. Of all Electronics we have in the house, its only my computer who doesnt work. 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.

So this is my first time making a forum post, since I am not desperate because nothing I've tried has worked. So two weeks ago I had an electrical surge in my house, on my desktop the ethernet port on the motherboard died, so I sent back my motherboard to have that fixed. Now that I have it back I tried getting my ethernet to work, though now the connection properly works (as in the local area connection is now at least recognized) I still have no internet access. I just tried reinstalling Windows 7 64 bit, fresh install after I wiped everything. My ethernet adapter is called Realtek PCIe GBI Family controller. I have a E2500 Linksys router and a Comcast modem, I tried plugging the ethernet cable into each other but no luck. Currently I'm attempting to at least make the desktop use the modem internet directly. I seem to be sending packets but not receiving them when I looked in the Status of the Local Area Connection, in network connection details I have an autoconfiguration ipv4 of 196.254.xxx.xxx, ipv4 subnet mask, 255.255.0.0, and nothing in the ipv4 default gateway,dns server, or wins server, and no ipv6 default gateway.. I've tried many things, too many to name now, but I am willing to try anything you guys mention and post the appropriate data or logs, just tell me what it is you would like to see. Any help would be highly appreciated!

Anytime you see 169.x.y.z, that's the clue that your DHCP request to the router did not get an answer.

DHCP should return an IP address directly related to your router's address and two DNS addresses.

I recently had a hard drive failure. After installing a new internal hard drive, formatting and installing XP Home/SP2, I reinstalled all my back up files and tweaks etc. All is lean, mean and secure. However, when I was checking my Device Manager, I noticed the yellow ? next to my Ethernet Controller, which explains why I had to reconnect to my DSL through a USB connection instead of my previous ethernet connection.

In my Ethernet Controller Properties, under the General Tab, it reads as follows:

Under the device status states, "Drivers for this device are not installed (code 28). I tried to reinstall the drivers through the Hardware Update Wizard, but it failed and stated, "Hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software.

I'm running Win XP and using Bt broadband (not wireless). Everything was going fine on Sunday night but when I turned the computer on on Monday morning I had no 'data' light on my router, called Bt did all the usual crap like changing the ethernet around and rebooting the router.

I then used a different ethernet cable and a netgear router and I was still not getting the light to show that ethernet was connected - nor do I have an orange light at the back of the computer.

Windows is telling me that the local area connection is unplugged. When I uninstall the ethernet (Sis 900-based fast ethernet adaptor) Windows finds it again and successfully reinstalls it and tells me it's ready to use.

I am online through a usb cable from my router and my boyfriend's xbox 360 is connected to the router through an ethernet and it's working so it's definetely my computer. I have downloaded new drivers from the Sis website and installed them but it still hasn't solved the problem.

A few times last night when I turned on my computer I have had to run it in safe mode because running it on the last known good config just brings up a black screen. It has been suggested to me that this could be a registry problem? If so do I need to reinstall windows? I had a virus about a week before this all happened.

Hey,

Earlier this week there was an update for windows 10, I'm not sure what the update was but it took about an hour to install so was fairly big (although I see no real changes). Anyway, since then the ethernet adapter no longer works when the computer starts up. It just says unidentified network and that no cable is connected (the cable definitely is, and I've tried different cables and same result).

Anyway, the solution is to disable the adapter and enable it again, and then it works as expected. The problem is, it will randomly stop working sometime when you start the computer up again, and so you have to go through the process again. I've tried updating the driver, but there are no new updates. Reinstalling the driver is only a temporary fix, as the problem will arise again the next time I restart the device. Is there any permanent solution for this?

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read this post, any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Clean Install of Win XP Pro sp2 and the ethernet controller is not working. It does not show up in the device manager with the usual yellow question marks, the ethernet controller does not show up at all. The ethernet controller is a Realtek RTL8100C. The computer is a Compaq SR2150NX that shipped originally with Vista (way to slow), I switched it to XP (very fast). Mom Brd is a ECS RC415ST-HM (HP/Compaq Mom Brd name: Alhena5-GL6). I found all of the XP drivers for the Mom Brd (including the ethernet controller) and everything works fine except the ethernet controller. The onboard ethernet is enabled in the BIOS. Could the Realtek chip be bad? How do you force-feed it ethernet drivers when the controller doesn't show up in the device manager? Any advice sure would be appreciated. Thanks...

I recently got my computer "fixed" but when i try to plug it in to connect to the internet there is an error code that reads "Plug an ethernet cable into this computer"

It currently detects:
Atheros AR8131 PCO-E gigabit ethernet controller

I dont run off of an ethernet cable, i have installed:
Netgear Rangemax Wireless PCI adapter WPN311, which seems to be working.

My computer wont detect my wireless adapter or the wireless router that i have in my home. It will only detect the fact that my ethernet cord is not plugged in.

I have tried to uninstall the ethernet cord 3 times and nothing....... What do i need to do?

Hello, i just found out we had a computer lying around in the house. I've managed to boot it and everything works completely fine, except for the ethernet. It says its connected, it's receiving packages and all that, but when i try to connect to the internet it just says You are offline. It says t
he internet is connected. Im using "Black XP"

Network driver/card is Realtek RTL8169/8110 Family Gigabit Ethernet NIC
Dont know if the network driver is the problem, it might be. But then i wonder if anyone could give me the link to the newest driver. Ty.

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?

So I've been googling this problem for hours now and I've finally given up and decided to ask for some help. My computer knowledge is pretty good but I'm not so great with all this internet stuff! I can connect to the internet through the cable but not wirelessly, despite it showing up as being available when I connect it tells me I have limited connectivity. Any help would be very appreciated, i ran a ipconfig and here are the results:

So i just built my first computer and it worked great for a an hour or so then the Ethernet just stopped working. Now i can?t get it to work on my computer again, the cable works on my laptop and the router workes too.

I believe its a problem with the drivers but i can install new ones because i have no internet. Please help!

Error message: ?the intel(r) Ethernet connection (2) 1219-V adapter is experiencing driver- or hardware-related problems?

This device cannot start. (Code 10)

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.

Sounds like you need a 64-bit driver, it would generally help if you posted the brand/model

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?

Thanks and regards,

Hey guys, sorry my first post has to be a question, but by reading through I feel like I have come to the right place. First off I have a basic understanding of computers, (I get some of the common sense stuff) so please keep this in mind. We have 4 Emachines desktops running Windows 7. 3 of the 4 use a Cisco wireless adapter USB to get on internet through our Netgear router. Sorry if I'm using the names like I'm advertising for them, just don't know how much difference knowing brand to brand makes. Anyways one of the desktops USB just stopped working, it showed up in the device manager when you would plug something in but it could not read off of it. I tried multiple portable drives and it the USB wifi adapter quit working. After a few hours I somehow figured out that if I brought the desktop and plugged it into a ethernet cable it would get online. I then performed a Windows update and it fixed the USB's. It done that twice over the period of a week. Both times a updat fixed the problem. I say all that to say Sunday, the one computer that is hardwired to the router by Ethernet cable quit working. The difference is the USB's all work fine, but I believe there is something wrong with the Ethernet port. Basically the same scenario one day its fine next it's not. I've check for updates but it say there is none. I have changed ethernet cable between them, tried swapping port with the cable. Also I swapped other computers to the same ports, they got on...

Connection between access point, router or cable or modem is broken. (Tried the cord on another computer and internet via ethernet connection is ok.) I tried troubleshooting with Telus but they show no problems with modem. Tried ping test it was ok. Turned cord around it didn't help, tried restarting modem etc. and it didn't help.The driver has the most updated version and reports it is working properly. Have tried to restart and no change. Please help.

I just turned on my computer and windows is telling me that my Ethernet port is un plugged. Reinstalling the drivers for it didnt help. When i try and plug it in, the orange and green lights flash in this pattern: O . . . O G G G . . . and repeats. On other Ethernet ports the green on stays on and the orange one flickers. Is there any way i can install a new one? It looks as though the port is mounted on the
motherboard and I dont want to buy a new one.

Hi, so basically I am using a windows 7 computer, and my WiFi doesn't seem to be working. To be exact, my Ethernet cable is working but my wireless isn't... before (a few days ago) it seemed to be working when I restart my computer, or just simply restart my router. But now, when I've tried it about 10 times, the WiFi is still not working :/

Thanks for the help
