Local Area Connection Not Showing Under Network And Sharing Center?
Aug 3, 2011
The link to Local area connection on the PC i am working on is no longer showing under Network and Sharing center. However the connection is up and I can access the internet. If I do an ipconfig /all I see the adapter setting as I set them. In device manager the device is working properly. I checked the BIOS and the NIC is enabled
I am trying to connect my WDTV Live to my desktop PC, and I connect to the net through a wireless connection to my router. Because its in the other room, I can't connect my WDTV Live to the router without running cable along the floor. Having said that, its not far away from my desktop PC, so I'm trying to connect them directly via cable. The problem is that my WD keeps telling me that it can't obtain an IP address and I don't know how to fix it or what values to put in.I've tried power cycling, manually setting an IP address (192.168.0.5), using different cables, all with no success[CODE]
Local Area Connection - Network Cable Unplugged I am using Professional 2000 and have a Linksys WRT54G Version 8.2 Wireless Router...have broadband connection through Brighthouse. My laptop works fine but my desk top computer keeps giving me this message.I have checked all the connections and even bought a new network cable to see if it was a hardware issue.
My computer is running on Windows 7. It has had no prior internet connection problems. It is wired to my DV-2020 router. My internet suddenly disappeared, as in, it doesn't work anymore. I'm not sure as to when it disappeared due to my personal absence, but from what I heard it was either during 'starting a game' or 'installing firefox add-ons updates'. Internet does work on other computers sharing the same internet (wired and wireless). On the computer that does not have access to internet it gives a "local area connection - No Network Access" and "local area connection - unidentified network." So far I've tried:
A system restore. Restarting the router (at home as well as the provider) Changing wiring. Disabling / Enabling. Disabling virusscanner.
The "Local area network connection" is not visible in Network Connections. The Ethernet controller and adapter driver is properly install (no yellow signs). All Network services are also running properly.
The network is working fine, and getting an IP address from DHCP but has to restart the DHCP service once after booting.
I am connected wirelessly on my laptop to my DIR-655 (D-Link) router. There is something weird going on to me in which is shows I am connected to two networks, one my home network clearly identified. The other one a "public network" listed as unidentified, all on one wireless connection. I run Windows 7 SP 1 32-bit. I would like somehow to merge or remove the second one from the listing.
I have a Dell desktop with Windows XP Home Edition. I recently restored the computer to factory settings and when I tried connecting to the internet the Local Area Connection wasn't showing in My Network Places. I have been searching through other forums and tried the things that they suggested but nothing worked. I am trying to connect to an AT&T U-verse 2Wire router through a wired connection. I tried connecting both wirelessly and wired to another computer and everything worked fine. I checked the Device Manager and there is an ! mark next to the Ethernet Controller. The properties say that the drivers for that device aren't installed. And of course I can't install them since I can't access the internet. Other forums suggested that I check the network adapters option in Device Manager but that isn't available in the device manager.
I just purchased an AE2500 today for my desktop computer because my router is in another room. I am running Windows 7 64 bit. I tried installing the software from the disk first and it would not detect the adapter. But Windows did detect the device and I was able to manually install the drivers and in the control panel it says the device is working properly. When I go to the network sharing center no network is detected I then go to the netwokr adapters and the device is disabled. I try enabling the device and it will not. So then I go and boot in to Windows 8 RC and the device is detected and works fine and everything seems fine. I downloaded the driver from the website tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it with the downloaded version and still a no go.
My error message states that "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Registering with DNS".I have no internet connection on my HP PC, which is why I am typing this on my laptop.On the HP I am running windows xp with sp3.I connect to a cable modem provide by Time Warner.This problem started yesterday, so I have been utilizing both computers with one internet connection, or plugging and unplugging the cat5 cable.I have run Microsoft Essential Full scan, as well as Malwarebytes's Anti-malware.Now I ran both of those in Safe mode, and picked up no bugs. I have Avast as my antivirus software, and the message I receive on that is that "Avast will not be able tp protect mail/news (error 10050). I am unable to turn on the web shields for Avast.I have manually entered the IP addresses into my HP from my laptop, all the way thru DNS servers.It still won't connect.I tried using the Internet explorer diagnostic tool, and it came back and said that I have a winsock issue.
1. Internet works ok, everything is fine, but then it stops working for no reason.
2. I open Network and Sharing Center, and do diagnostics. They come up with result: "the default gateway is not available". Nothing works. But Local Area Connection and Network Controller are both enabled.
3. I have to restart computer for the internet to work again. However, it doesn't restart: it hangs forever in "shutting down" screen, and nothing happens. Probably because computer is still trying to connect to the internet (?)
4. After forced restart, internet doesn't work, but if I run diagnostics again, they come up with result: "The Local Area Connection adapter is disabled", and fixes it automatically. Internet works then.
My internet is working fine, but my Ethernet cannot get a connection. On my Ethernet Local Area Connection it says status is: Limited or no connectivity i am running an Ethernet cable from my xbox 360 to the Ethernet adapter slot at the back of my computer, no wireless or anything. And as i say the internet works fine though i cant get any connectivity out of the Ethernet adapter.This used to work fine two weeks ago, now it refuses to work i recently moved and so i disconnected my pc nothing broke and all it did was sit around in a safe place before the move EVERYTHING worked fine, On my xbox the display says:Network adapter - wired IP address - failed?i'm running windows xp sp 2?
I wasn't able to connect to my modem's Ethernet for a month, before that, i was able to use my Ethernet when connected to PC, but when i threw it away, i tried many time to connect to my modem' Ethernet but all the attempts were a failier.......Is it because of the cable that i must connect or is it the com or modem that is wrong?
I have xp pro sp3 i also connect thru fios since i restarted my computer last evening i can't connect this computer was put together for me so no original disks under network connections there is no lan connection can't use system restore tried ipconfig but says internal error and thats all when i try safe mode i see all of the network adapters but i don't see it in regular boot.
I am having this same issue. Except under Network Adapters, I don't have a yellow question mark. I have a amd Athlon(tm) 64x2 dual core processor and operate with windows XP professional service pack 2. my other computer (this pc im using) i have no problem with the connection I can to the the Internet

My laptop (win7) can connect to wireless, but not Local Area Connection.This is the capture of my device manager, it reported that the driver of ip6 failure.but I do not think ip6 relates.I tried configuring a static IP address, reinstalling network driver, or disabling and enabling network cards.
howdy,im having trouble with my LAC.it just keeps identifying.i have tried everything,uninstall/reinstall, netsh winsock reset,netsh int ip reset,disable/enable.windows diagnostics comes back with invalid ip address,and modem hardware failure.device manager lists the network adapter as working,yet it doesn't here's my ipconfig[CODE]
I got a used computer from my relatives. When i enable my local area connection then it says aqcuiring ip adress for a while. Eventually it stops trying and says network cable unplugged. It worked fine at my relatives place, but not at my place.
I've been trying to set my IP to a static IP so I can host servers for a few different games and every time I change the IPV4 settings my internet stops working and when I troubleshoot it says "DHCP Not enabled for local area connection.".
I am trying to set up a wifi hotspot with my wireless adaptor. The connection between my ipod and the wireless adaptor in my computer seems to be working fine, but it doesn't connect further to the local area connection (ethernet).I tried to bridge the two networks but it doesn't work I get the error message "An unexpected error occurred while configuring the network bridge"[CODE]
I am using an ethernet cable to connect my desktop to a Linksys router but I am getting the following message "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid ip configuration.I have connected to other routers so I do not believe that the card is at fault.So far I have tried the following:
Swapping ethernet cables Connecting to router connecting to modem power cycling router/modem/computer downloading new driver
