Cabling / Cards :: Aspire 7551 -windows 7 - Ethernet Stop Working?

May 27, 2012

Perhaps once a week my ethernet port stops working. That is, it is still displayed as 'working properly' in the device management screen, but it is unable to connect to dns. System restore does not solve this problem. plugging the ethernet cable in and out (10 times) does not solve this problem. Modem reset does not solve this problem either. I decided that perhaps ethernet controller is faulty, or perhaps the ethernet port in itself- so I bought a 'usb to ethernet' adaptor and surprisingly the internet connection problem persisted (during the instances when my laptop ethernet port had problems connecting to DNS, the adaptor was also unable to connect to internet).

What does solve this problem is this: I have another notebook - I plug the ethernet cable into that computer. Obviously, internet works without any problems with my second notebook. After that, I plug the ethernet cable back into the laptop which is now unable to connect to DNS. Quite often the Not being able to connect to DNS issue still remains the first time I do this, so I have to connect ethernet cable back into my second notebook and then plug it back into the notebook with a connectivity problem. After I do this 2 or 3 times, my windows 7 laptop is finally able to connect to internet.

Cabling / Cards :: Ethernet Port Not Working

Mar 5, 2012

I was having a cleanup of the desk and unplugged the cable shortly, and after plugging it back in it could no longer find any connection. The only way I seem to be able to get connected to the internet now is to run a cable to my ethernet switch, and then onwards to my computer itself. Even when doing this the net seems to be very slow, won't connect through Chrome etc or just flat out won't connect.

Cabling / Cards :: CAT5 Ethernet Cables Not Working

Jul 14, 2011

I live in a frat and I am currently researching how to design and configure the most efficient network for the house. However, one of the other big problems we have is connectivity of our ethernet cables. We have an IT room with 2 switches that feed ethernet cables to all parts of the house and connect to an ethernet box in the wall where we can simply wire in our internet connection. We have wireless routers too but to keep the bandwidth usage across the WAP's I want to let people use the wired connections. However, many of the connection in the house do not work at all. I plug in my laptop to the wall jack and it gives me the No Internet Access notice. I don't understand why it works in some rooms and not others. All jacks seem to go into the same switches at the other end so I cannot figure out what the problem could be.

Cabling / Cards :: Can't Detect Ethernet Cable?

I'm having an issue with my network adapter. It's not detecting the Ethernet cable, thus not able to connect to my home network. The trouble shooter (Windows 7 home 64) says it canning detect the cord. But the cable works fine on my other computer. The network adapter is a Nvdia nforce networking controller. All the drivers are up to date. The computer was completely formatted so it's a blank slate

Cabling / Cards :: Slingbox PRO Not Receiving Ethernet Signal

Oct 8, 2011

They have a main Verizon router in their bedroom, which is hard wired to a wireless router in the TV room. The have another cable router (not wireless) and it can receive a signal when you plug an Ethernet cable from output #1 on the wireless router to Internet input on the cable router (the Internet light lights up, meaning it's receiving the signal). Also the wireless router light for output #1 lights up (meaning it's outputting a signal correctly). But, when I plug the same cord into the Slingbox PRO, the network light, on the Slingbox PRO, doesn't light up, nor does the #1 light on the wireless router. The Slingbox is out of warranty.

Cabling / Cards :: Cannot Connect To Internet Through Ethernet Cable

Dec 12, 2012

Ive been using an Ethernet cable to connect to the Internet for a while now, it was working fine up to yesterday where I left my desktop open for a few hours and came back to find that I have no Internet connection.

I used my laptop to test the cable out and it works fine, the wireless works fine too. There doesnt seem to be anything wrong with the modem since I still have Internet on the PS3. I used a different cable to test the modem again with my laptop and I had internet access. The desktop is still connected to the modem but it only gives me a network connection with no Internet.

I tried restarting the modem but it still wouldnt work and I also tried to disable then enable the connection.

Im using Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller with the latest driver.

Cabling / Cards :: Ethernet Cable Unplugged Message But It's Not

Apr 12, 2011

Can't log on to computer running win xp sp3. I'm getting message that ethernet cable is unplugged but it's not unplugged. The modem/router was installed by Verizon (for FIOS connection) in February 2011. Internet was working fine until a couple of days ago. I have looked at other posts on this issue but have found nothing that would solve the problem. My old dial-up modem was still installed in the computer and had a question mark on it in device manager so I removed it. I thought maybe there was an IRQ conflict as the modem used to use IRQ 11 and the network card (linksys) uses that sometimes as well as IRQ 10 but that didn't work.

Cabling / Cards :: Updated Ethernet Driver Caused Loss Of Connection

Mar 18, 2013

I recently updated my NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 mbps ethernet driver and now my computer wont connect to the internet. In fact, it doesnt even acknowledge that the ethernet chord is plugged in. I am running windows 7 and have had no problems for years now. Since ive had my PC for so long I decided it was time to update, now im at a loss of what to do. I am currently using my laptop to submit this post, as my PC is not a wifi enabled device. I recall having this problem back when I first had this computer made and found a resolution online, (cant seem to find the same site i used back then.) I recall that it had something to do with me using the command prompt. While i have been looking for an answer, I have tried the following with no avail:

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log press enter
Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log press enter
Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog press enter

Restart the computer after.

Cabling / Cards :: Cannot Connect To Internet Via Ethernet - Microsoft 6to4 Adapter Not Showing

Feb 12, 2011

have had a new HP G62-234DX laptop for about 4 months now and I'm now having problems connecting to the internet via ethernet. The lights do not come up when I plug it into the port and I have already tried to download the Ethernet driver from HP but it didn't seem to install properly, tells me it only works for Windows Vista which isn't true. I checked my device manager also and saw that I only have my wireless network adapter showing which works fine because I've been connecting wireless but I need a wired connection when I do not have wifi at my university. On device manager I chose 'show hidden devices' and I saw an unnecessary amount of "Microsoft 6to4 adapters" come up which does not seem right.

Cabling / Cards :: Cat5 Not Working Past 25Ft

May 22, 2012

We are setting up a network in our new house. We have the internet entering the garage. From there we have a 60 ft Cat 5 cables run through the crawl space. Orginally we had the wireless router attached to the end of the cat 5 and then attached to the computer. We could not get a connection through this wire. We then took out the cable, and ran a new one, same issue. We took the same cable, cut it down to 25 feet, installed the router in the garage and we have an excellant connection. We then ran a new wire through the crawl space from the router. Same issue, no connectivity. Taking that cable out, cutting it down we ran the wires from the router to our computers in the garage. why a Cat5 cable would not work at 60Ft.?

Cabling / Cards :: Atheros AR5007EG WLAN Not Working

May 15, 2011

Up until a couple of days ago, I could connect to a wireless network no problem. Now, it's as if wireless doesn't exist on my netbook.

Computer: Acer Aspire One Model: ZG5 / AOA150
OS: XP, Service Pack 3
WLAN/Driver: Atheros AR5007EG/v7.6.0.224

I've done the Recovery Console and performed the Windows Registry repairs. I've even reformatted the computer, but to no avail at all. And I've done all the basic troubleshooting and surfed forums for way too long and found no solutions.

So this is kind of a last ditch effort. It still connects to the internet via an ethernet cord, so all is not completely lost, but it kind of defeats the purpose of having a netbook without having wireless connectivity.

Cabling / Cards :: Wireless Card Only Working On Second Boot Up

I built a computer a while ago, from a reasonably low budget. Ever since the very first boot up, the wireless card (TP-Link, unable to find model currently, will add later) only works on the second consecutive boot up. I have no idea why, I have not found anything relating to a problem like this, the computer doesn't even appear to know that there is a wireless card in it. Instead the icon shows a cable, suggesting that the computer isn't connecting with the card.

Cabling / Cards :: 802.11 B/g USB Wireless Adapter Randomly Stops Working

Sep 3, 2012

I've been using an 802.11 b/g USB wireless network adapter card with my computer to use in conjunction with an AT&T 2Wire router,which is about 20 or 30 feet away off in another room.After about 10 minutes on average, the adapter will stop transferring data suddenly, and it will stay that way for a while. If I do nothing, then sometimes it will start up again after several more minutes, but instead of waiting, I usually will select "Repair" from the Wireless Network Connection pop-up menu, which also works to get it started again. The problem though, naturally, is that after another little while, like about 10 minutes again, it will short out all over again. Sometimes, very rarely, it will stay working for up to maybe an hour, and sometimes, it can short out yet again within a few seconds.
