I just reinstalled Windows 7 on my computer again and appear to be having trouble connecting to the internet with my ethernet cable. I've only ever used a wired connection on this computer, but am completely unable to do so at the moment.
Is there a difference in an ethernet cable and an Ethernet networking cable? I have an Ethernet cable and a 6 port splitter I am trying to connect. I have 4 ports in the router that are in use. When I connect them to the splitter nothing s working.
I am trying to connect my two laptops with one Ethernet cable without any internet to a Network. However, just one of the laptops is identifying the connection, the other doesn't recognize that it has been connected to another laptop. Obviously, the cable itself is working (because one laptop identifies the connection), but what might be the problem that the other laptop doesn't recognize any connections?
I'm trying to connect to the internet via the ethernet cable available in my office at the university but it won't work. I'm able to see other computers connected to the network, share printers and have access to shared files but have no internet access. I know that the problem is not the cable or socket because my old XP computer connects to the internet just fine.
I had a similar problem back at home but I just restarted the modem and was able to connect.
For some reason, i cannot connect to the internet using my current ethernet cable. I am 100% positive that adapter is working fine, as i had maintenance come into my room and check it out, but my computer won't connect to their internet through my cable. [code]
i went over to my grandma house and got wireless mouse and the mouse uses a floppy disk to put some sort of wizard wireless network thing on my computer but now i cxan use said floppy disk be cause it broke but ever sence i used that i cant conect to the internet
I have my Xbox and Pc hooked up to a monitor. I want to be able to use both at the same time using only 1 ethernet cable. How do I go about doing this. Will a regular splitter allow me to use both at the same time?
my laptop has a very annoying habit of disconnecting from the internet, on annoying ass random occasions, the network dropped. When my laptop connected back to the internet again, my pc now says that there is no internet access coming from the cable. I have reset both my laptop and my pc, the router and changed cables. I have also enabled NETBios with TCP on both computers, but nothing.
Just got a new modem and it works fine while connected through an ethernet cord but I can't connect wirelessly. My network doesn't even show up in the list of available networks. I'm using Vista by the way. I've downloaded all drivers that seemed to have something to do with my problem. [code]
I have a Netgear wireless router and just set up my wireless network.The only problem is that when I remove the ethernet cable, I lose connection to the internet.My operating system is Vista.In the network connection icon, it shows that I am connected to an unidentified network.Also, on the globe icon it shows that I am connected to the network by local access only. Furthermore, I seem to be missing tabs under the wireless network connection properties section, such as advanced and sharing. I seem to be sending packets but not receiving any.I tried all the basics at this point, including rebooting and powering the modem and router down.
I recently got Fios installed in my home. I believe there is a box the size of a power box in the back room for the Internet.All my other devices (MAC, iPod, Blueray Player) are able to recieve instant and unbelieveable internet connection except for my Dell. I have a Studio XPS Dell computer with windows 7. I plugged in the ethernet cable in the back of my computer and into the "Fios Box" but i didn't recieve any internet. Then i bought a wireless adapter and I do get internet but it disconnects me like every 5 minutes.
I've recently tried to connect my laptop to my modem with the ethernet cable to update the modems firmware but the ethernet lights on the modem isn't blinking and a connection isn't seen on my computer. My laptop is : Vaio VPCEB13FG
EDIT: I think i may have deleted the ethernet driver to reset my drivers but i have no idea how to get the ethernet driver back. Oh yes when I tried the ipconfig in CMD, under Ethernet adapter local area connection i get media diconnected and not much else for that.
So saturday, my friend and i build my computer. Everything worked just fine that day. Sunday i had no problem connecting to the internet. Sunday is also the day i set up a password for my admin account.
Now when i came back from work monday, i tried to log in to my computer. As it appears, i forgot my password... (same i use on everything, so i must have messed up inputting my pass)
So i did a windows reset, since i had no CD or USB to reset my pass. I tried installing windows, and it appears 'this copy of windows is not genuine'. I thought, okay, no prob, as long as i have all options.
I am in a College dorm and the only access to internet we have is by connecting an Ethernet cable to the connection in the wall and straight to the computer. That is how I have internet as we speak and it works fine. Problem is, that when I plug it in into the xbox it doesnt even connect to the network?
I have just replaced a wbr-1310 with a dir-601. I can connect with an Ethernet cable, but not wireless. I have comcast cable with a Motorola surfboard modem. I was able to connect with the wbr-1310 with this setup.
I can connect to the internet using my neighbors wireless router but when I try to use my ethernet cable it connects me to "network 16" but the internet doesnt work. Ive tried different cables and different wall ports and that didnt work. It has been working before but I disconnected it to go somewhere and when I came back I had this problem. I use Windows 7 and Im trying to connect using Marvell Yukon 88E8057 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller.
i reformatted my computer 1 month ago, when i try to connect with ethernet cable it doesn't connect, but when i use the usb cable which i got with my modem it connects.btw i have a acer e389 which runs on XP(media center).
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.
I recently bought an older Dell Inspiron 8100 just to lug around and it connects to wifi via a wireless card no problem. The problem I am having is that when I hardwire to the net via the ethernet cable, I get nothing. It's OS is Windows XP sp3
I have internet through my cable company and currently use their wireless netgear router. I purchased a Netgear Router N600 but it does not have a port for the cable connection. Can you recommend the correct wireless router
I have an HP laptop (vista) and I can connect to the internet when I use the ethernet cable but when I don't have the ethernet in, it just says that it is an unidentified network and an only connect locally. I have run an ipconfig/all and this is what I get:

First connect the modem to Ethernet outlet using standard small Ethernet cable.connect Ethernet outlet A to outlet B using Ethernet cable inside the wall.connect outlet B to the receiver using standard small Ethernet cable.I want to know how I make the connection in outlet A and outlet B to make this work.
Now that the wireless on my Dell XPS 15 Z is fine, I've run into some problems with internet connectivity with Ethernet cable. Since the beginning, I wasn't able to connect to it through cable. When I connect my laptop with the cable, it says that it's connected, and that it has an internet connection. However, I can't get on it... My browsers don't have internet, and other programs can't connect either. (that while it says that it's connected to internet, quite strange)... I was thinking of some security adjustment that might block the internet connection or something, I don't know.
Oh, something that I should mention... I was able to get internet through Ethernet cable when there was a firewall... But when there's no security to the network... It isn't possible to have internet and it gives the situation described above. (any other laptop can connect with the network, so there must be some adjustment issue...)
I have a huawei 521i router that I recently reset back to factory settings. I have been trying to set up my wifi but something is wrong. I can connect with my ethernet cable but not wifi. I have set up my wireless connection and I can see it in the list.
