Routers / Switches :: Internet Dies When Connecting Ethernet Cable?

Oct 25, 2012

I've got a Cisco DPC3825 modem that I also use as a wifi router. Conntected to it I have 4 eithernet cables:

1. From PC to Router

2. From another PC to router

3. From TV to router

4. From a Dlink Powerline Adapter to Router.It took me a while to figure this out but when I unplug all the eithernet cables and plug back in #1 and #2 (from above) the internet works. When I plug back in #3 and #4, the internet dies. Meaning, I am connected to the network but not the internet. I've reset the modem, changed SSID and restarted the PC many times but still can't figure out this issue.

Networking :: Ethernet Cable Alternatives ASUS PCE-N13

Mar 30, 2013

So I finally got rid of the network cable across my hallway, yes it was faster, however It was ugly and I just didn't like it being there or having to cover it etc.

My attic makes a simple drop very difficult. I would need to cut into my plaster walls and hire a drywaller who knows how to work with plater to fix them, then re-paint my walls etc.

I always thought wireless N would be too slow to stream larger H264 files mkvs etc. So I bought a new ASUS Wirelss AC router, and AC network card.

I also bought some toplink 500mbps power outlet transmitters to test in the bedroom. This PC also has a ASUS PCE-N13 300MPS wirless card (150MPS upload), that was missing antennas. I borrowed some wireless g antennas fro some old routers to to test it out. For the Tp-Link Power Line adapters I tried 3 plugs that are all on the same braker, and in fact are wired off the same run.

Both living room and bedroom are pretty close to the office, with 2 walls (but also 2 door ways that line up through a JackNJill bathroom (so no walls?) directly into the bedroom. The living room has to go through one wall and around the hallway corner.

So the ASUS AC network card picks up the router at 833Mbps in my living room.
The ASUS PCE-N13 picks up at 150/133 Mbps in the bedroom.
The Toplink 500Mbps powerline adapter is shows as 100Mbps.

When plugging in the powerline adapters the Gig router it as a 100Mbps line too (Yellow light). Shouldn't this register as a Gbps line? How can they claim 500Mbps is they are only using a 100Mbps controller?!?!


So it seems like wireless N is working much better for me than the powerline adapters? I really like the hard line style of the adapters, but it concerns me that they are only detected as 100Mbps devices. How can they be detected as 100Mbps but claim up to 500Mbps? Should I send these back and try different powerline adapters? Or maybe I should just get another wireless Asus wireless AC card.

Networking :: High Pitch Noise Coming From Motherboard When Ethernet Cable Plugged 7970

May 9, 2013

This has been driving me absolutely crazy but I am glad to have found the source of it. Over the past 4-5 weeks ever since i built my new computer, my computer has always had this wierd high pitch noise. I dont know if its coil whine or not, but the sound signature is def not the same as the coil whine that comes from my 7970 card. It sounds more digital.

What could be the cause of this? And what would the remedy be? My ethernet cable is approx 60 ft so it will be a pain in the ass to replace. Or buy another NIC?

edit: forgot to mention....the noise is constant. Not intermittent with usage. No amount of load or idle on the network changes the noise.

Realtek RTL8168D/8111D PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC Won't Detect Ethernet Cable?

Aug 8, 2012

I am having a problem with my Realtek RTL8168D/8111D PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC. It is not detecting my ethernet cable, and thus leaving me without internet on my desktop, after i updated its driver. The cable is not the problem as I have tested the cable with my laptop. I tried rolling back drivers, doing system restore and removing drivers with driversweeper and letting windows install the drivers again. However, none of these worked for me. I doubt the NIC is faulty as it was working before i updated the drivers. I am using windows 7 home premium 64-bit.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N Blinking With No Ethernet Cable Attached To Router

Feb 24, 2012

I have a  WAG160N  wireless gateway . Yesterday when i tried to power it on after a couple of seconds the power led was solid green and the Ethernet leds were blinking with no Ethernet cable attached to the router . The ethernet leds would keep blinking for minutes . I tried to use a screwdriver to do a hardware reset  ( with power on ) and i noticed that the power led would start blinking green/red for minutes . I tried to use another wired router which i have for backup and it could connect to the internet normally without a problem.

What the green / red blinking power led means ( power led is green and then changes to red and then it starts over ) ?

Ethernet Port Not Recognizing Ethernet Cable?

Apr 30, 2011

I have a Dell XPS M1530 with Vista 32 bit. When i plug in a cable i get nothing, no error, and the comp does not recognize that a cable has been plugged in. I think that this started after my Hard drive failed and Dell replaced it but i'm not positive. No errors (? or !) in Device Manager and I can't find the Marvell 88E80XX 10/100 Ethernet Controller in device manager. I have attempted to Reinstall the drivers. The wireless is still working. I have one Light to the right of the port that is on all the time solid but no flashing with the cable in or out.

Connecting Multiple Routers Via Ethernet Cable For Range?

Dec 20, 2012

Although I haven't looked through all the forum topics I couldn't find anything very similar to my situation. I have a rather large house and my modem/router (Netgear DGND3300 v2 due to DSL) is in the very corner. Given this most of the opposite corner of my house gets either poor or no connection; however, I do have an ethernet cable run across the house through the basement to my home theatre setup. This is where I encounter another problem, I need multiple devices to be connected via ethernet and I also need to have wireless in that same area. In my mind I picture myself connecting a second router to this ethernet cable through which I could have wired connections to all my devices, and a second router broadcasting wirelessly. I'm familiar with some types of wireless bridging, but I'd rather use more of a wired bridge concept if possible, but I've never really seen something like this. The question is, is this possible? Or, what is another possible way to achieve the same results? The only other thing I can think of is to run an ethernet hub from the original wired connection to my home theatre so I can connect multiple ethernet devices and run a separate wireless extender or something, but this just seems pricy.

Networking :: Does Length Of Cat6 Cable Make Difference In Home Network DIR-655

Dec 10, 2011

I have a Dlink DIR-655 router for my wired and wireless router for my home network. I have a 100ft cat6 ethernet cable. I pulled it from the router to my home server in my basement.

Does the 100ft cable make a difference or does the fact that it's a cat6 cable make a difference?

When moving similar files at work, it's faster. So I'm trying to find out what's the bottleneck at home. What speeds should I expect for a home network?

Video From Mac To Pc Via Ethernet Cable?

Jul 21, 2011

I'm trying to set up a system where a lecturer can sit at home and give his (video and audio) class across the street via an ethernet cable strung across the street. The only problem is he has a mac, and we in the class running it aren't going to leave our PCs for macs!Is there any simple way to connect the mac to PC (without running through a router, as it slows down the system)?If so, what programs will work best for both PC and mac for streaming the video (and are free)[BTW I don't think a 100m cable is too long for the signal.

The Ethernet Cable Isn't Recognized?

Sep 20, 2012

Yesterday I was on my computer when all of the sudden my internet stopped working. I am using windows 7 and at the bottom right I see a big "X" over the small computer icon. I already tried a computer reboot, a router+modem reboot, system restore, and I even reset the power to the room of the modem+router from the fuse box in my house. I tried everything.

I'm sure the problem must be from the actual cable or mother board itself. ( I hope it isn't ) I tried blowing out any dust from the ports and making sure that nothing was blocking the connection. I fell asleep last night with the internet not working, and woke up to it working. Every other computer in my house works except for mine. I tried all of the router ports as well. I did not attempt another ethernet cable though because my room is far and I would need to make a very long one.

Ethernet Cable Not Being Recognized

Apr 25, 2013

An older post on this forum told me to remove the adapter's driver software and restart the system. I did this, and it tried to install the software on startup but it keeps failing when installing. Forcing it to look for new driver software resulted in it saying the best software is already installed.

Connect Two PCs With Ethernet Cable?

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?

Can't Connect Through Ethernet Cable

Sep 13, 2011

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.

Can't Run Ethernet Cable From Router To PC

Oct 4, 2012

At the moment I cant run an ethernet cable through my house from my router to my desktop PC (Which is where I use the internet/play games etc) and connect directly that way because my parents dont want cables going through the house etc etc.For the past 2 months or more I used my old laptop to pick up the wireless connection downstairs then I bridged the connection and used my ethernet cable from the laptop into my PC/Xbox or whatever, no problems until today, I wouldnt even have to log into the laptop, i would just turn it on and leave it at the login screen and I would have internet on my desktop/Xbox.Tried to do that today and was getting unidentified network on my desktop, i dont know what the problem is, I can connect directly to my router with the ethernet (I tried it) but not the old way anymore, i'm on the laptop now on the wireless internet.In network connections there LAN network isnt there anymore, its just the 'Unidentified Network' which is the bridged connection.
