Wireless Internet Not Connecting On XP Desktop Network Cable Unplugged
Aug 18, 2012
I have a dell desktop that uses Windows XP. Today I was cleaning out some unwanted programs that I never use and just take up space. But I don't know if I deleted something that I shouldn't have, or what happened but I am now unable to use my wireless internet. It says that a "network cable is unplugged". I have checked my modem and it is working fine. My brother is receiving internet in is laptop.
I realise many people are having this issue and there any lots of threads about it all, which i have spent hours looking through forums for answers but I am not that computer savy to understand it all...Haven't really come accross the same scenerio as i am having, so here it is: Just brought a Sony Vaio Laptop running Win 7 home Premium. Have a desktop computer running xp which is connected to modem and router...Am running a D-link DSL-502T and Linksys wireless-G broadband Router, model :WRT54G.My issue is i can connect to the wireless network through the laptop but when i switch the wireless switch on the laptop every few minutes the desktop PC will drop the connection and display network cable unplugged, then goes back and fourth connecting and disconnecting every few minutes....as soon as i flick wireless switch off on laptop all is fine again.....wireless works as have another laptop running windows 7 pro and can connect mobile phone through wireless and ipad etc...I have had the internet load web pages but connection doesnt stay on...Does the same thing when i try connecting directly using network cable.
After running my malware anti-virus and removing all the virus, my Local Area Connection keeps saying network cable unplugged. I checked the network adapters and everything is fine. When I did an ipconfig, there's no ip address showing. I have Windows XP. I've tried almost everything and it's still not working.
Got the cisco EA4500 router, installed it and ran the set up disc. It downloads whatever it needs to download, then proceeds with a progress bar all the way to 100. Then it tells me my internet cable is unplugged, but I able to browse the intrnet, like now. It tells me to plug it in and hit next, I hit next and it eventually gives me the same message. I've tried unplugging my modem, resetting the router etc. But when trying to run the disc when it gets to that point it always tells me my internet is unplugged? I can even browse the internet while that message is up.
i have installed linksys pci adapter with speed wmp54gs. i try and turn it on and it will not show any devices and it will not let me click on rescan the the only thing that highlights is exit when you open!
I am running an ethernet cord from my xbox 360 to my Acer Aspire TimelineX 3820TG-3022 Laptop Computer. I am attempting to run ICS in order to share the connection to my xbox. The problem comes when I attempt to plug in my ethernet cord to the computer, and nothing happens.
Here is a screenshot of what the port says / my network adapter setup: 33a7c93a4c607756f9219a95a7207a7d.png It's a Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet
I have tried sharing the connection to my xbox via another laptop, and it has worked. Power saving mode is disabled in the port in the device manager, and I have no clue what is going on.
I plug the Lenovo in to the Ethernet cable in my office, get link & data transfer lights, connect to the internet,everything works.Bring it out to different office (it's replacing an old XP machine, which connects on the cable I'm about to mention)Plug it in to ethernet, no lights, Network Cable is Unplugged.Plug cable back into old XP machine. It connects.
Bring out a Win7 Home Premium SP1 laptop. It connects.Plug back into Idea center, nothing. Drag idea centre back into my office. It works again.The Idea centre is new, so it's never worked on this area before. Also, I have 3, and they're behaving identically. ALSO, sometimes when I plug in the Ethernet cable the green and yellow indicator lights will blink once at me, and then never again.
The cable's good, works with 2 other machines. The port/NIC card is good, works in my office, the only difference between the two locations is that I have an extra router in my office that I don't have in the office the Lenovo is going in, so it MUST be something in the settings, but I can't tell what's different between the machines that work and the Lenovo.
Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 RealtekPCIe GBE Family Controller With no apparent change in software or configuration, I am getting the 'Network cable unplugged' error. The cable connects another PC just fine so both the cable and router are OK.
So here's a fresh spin (and not in a good way) on the seemingly common port-flapping issue, where a windows vista/7 machine's ethernet port vacillates between "enabling, identifying,network cable unplugged." I've tried the fixes I've seen around, like forcing the speed to 10 or 100Mb duplex,etc. But I think the problem goes deeper than that -or drivers or faulty NICs. Its acting like it's in the cabling. . . but not. Any advice would be welcome.Just switched from one DSL provider (Bell) to another (Teksavvy). Connected via a dry loop. When the Bell tech first set it up a year ago, he did it like this: Patch cord frome the Bell 2Wire modem/router combo to a female coupler. Female coupler attached to cat5 cable running about 25/30 feet along baseboards around the corner to another female coupler. Patch cord from female coupler to NIC in the back of my box. This worked fine. New set up with Tek savvy is as follows: DSL modem via patch cord to (wireless) D-Link router. D-link router connected to computer by same aforementioned setup. This results in the port-flapping named in the title of this message, on the hard line only. Any change in my computer was ruled out by connecting a brand new, never been connected laptop and the same terminal as my computer. Results in port flapping. The same laptop connected to the router by just the patch cord results in a perfect connection. I've tried moving the patch cords around, it doesn't change the results, so they're fine. I have no way of testing this long stretch of installed cable in the middle, with the couplers on it, since I don't have an equal length cable to try out anywhere, but I'd be surprised if that just died after a year's use exactly when I connected new hardware to the other end of it. Running windows 7 with a RealTek NIC on my box. D-Link router (will check the model later, at work at the moment), and TP-Link DSL modem. The system delivers wireless internet flawlessly.
At work we have an existing wireless network with with a lot of wireless pc's and devices connected to it.. We want to however connect 2 desktop pc's to the same network so that they have internet access also. These 2 desktops have been connected to the wireless router via wireless dongles, but due to some office arrangements we have to move them to a different office in the building where there is network ports available.I plugged in a D-Link 5-port Gigabit desktop switch to the network point in the office the 2 desktop pc's are moving to and tested it with my laptop (with wireless disabled) to see if everything is working.The LAN seems to be working fine, but when I want to connect to the internet.. it seems something is wrong.
Same problem ' network cable unplugged' even if it is physically connected. I have sony vaio pczim series with win 2000 xp home edition with a broadband (cpe adsl2+ type) connection. While everything working fine for past two years, suddenly after a thunderstorm night, I noticed the network connection failure with the message. I checked the router, cable and the same are working fine with other hp laptop. Even the vaio is running with the same router while usb port is used and even the wireless and bluetooth are fine, but network with ethernet cable connection does not.
my modem is working, I have two computers on the router plus my wireless is working.I connected my cable that was going from the modem to the router directly to the computer and it still says "network cable unplugged"sis 900 based PCI fast internet?
I want to connect my laptop and desktop. I have a LAN/Ethernet cable. When I joined the two, it says "Network cable is unplugged" on both the PC's. I have replaced my cable. The cable works good when I am using internet.
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.
I have an Inspiron 17R SE 7720 that is about a half-year old. This problem has been occurring for as long as I can recall. I'm running Windows 8, but this problem was identical with Windows 7.
My Ethernet adapter, a Realtek 10/100, works on boot-up. At some random point it stops working. It could be days later, it could be after waking up, it could be within an hour of a boot without sleep. "Network Connections" shows the adapter as enabled but unplugged. I can correct the problem by disabling the adapter and then re-enabling it, but that only works maybe a couple of times in a row. In the latest instance (moments ago), I right-clicked the adapter to disable it, and then right-clicked to enable it again. Normally the adapter would then show the adapter as enabled and the cable connected. When things really go wrong, a window pops up that first says "Enabling..." and then "Enabled", but it is still grayed out and not enabled. The only solution I have is to reboot the machine.
I have a Lynksys WRT600N. I had DD-WRT on it and it was working great for about a year. One day I changed some minor settings like wireless signal type, reboot it and it's gone. I can not access it from my computer. The network adapter shows "cable unplugged". The lights on the front come on, but I can't get anywhere with it.
I've done all the resets I know how to do, including the 30/30/30 and leaving it unplugged for a few months.
I'm running Cicso AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client v3.0.07059 for work. Attached is a sceenshot of my network connections. I'm currently hardwired on my network connection and the Cisco VPN is a virtual adapter but is shows "network cable unplugged."
I cant get a connection to the internet when i open up lan theres a red x when i diagnose lan it says to plug in ethernet cable ive done that but then it says it may be unplugged or broken i even changed the ethernet cable but same problem, so i figured its the driver but that says upto date however when i reinstall it says theres no network adapter installed, i havent installed anything recently and to besure it wasnt because of an microsoft update i even did a system restore
I am having internet connected to my Desktop with Win XP. Internet mode is Wireless Data Card that can be inserted into USB port. Now I have a laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium. I was able to connect both of them using ethernet cross over cable and successfully enabled file sharing through Local Area Network. But I want to access Internet from the laptop. Is it possible?
FYI, when I typed ipconfig in cmd prompt in desktop, PPP adapter High Speed Data: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Here is my current setup.I have a desktop CPU (without monitor) and a Acer D270 netbook.Desktop CPU has XP (SP3) and Netbook has XP SP3 and Win 7 (Dual boot).I wish to setup a LAN so I can access and view my desktop PC which is more powerful than my netbook. How do I setup the LAN connection or use remote desktop? I have a lengthy crossover cable ready (2 sided RJ45 cable). A detailed description so I can follow the procedure to setup at my place. Regarding performance, how good will it be. The CPU has NVidia Graphics card.
Last night, my internet was working perfectly and I closed my computer lid before going to sleep as usual. This morning, I wake up to use my computer and the internet isn't working. I check the icon at the top and instead of showing an empty wireless meter with an X over it, it shows a computer and a cable with an X over it, which isn't normal. My laptop is an Acer Aspire 5532 with a built in wireless adapter and it has a button near the power button that turns the adapter on and off. I decided to turn it off, give it a while, and turn it on, but that didn't fix it, so I restarted the computer.
Now, when I try to turn it on an off, it gives the wireless symbol with a circled X over it. I have checked the device in Device Manager to see if it is working and it says it is working properly. So I uninstalled it, restarted and the computer automatically installed software like it should, but that didn't fix it. I tried a System Restore, but that didn't work as well. Another thing I should mention is that I have tried rolling back the driver (which didn't fix anything), then I updated it, which also didn't fix anything.
Is there anything else I should try? The only thing Diagnostics can detect is an unplugged cable, but it's built in, so it doesn't require a cable (I've had it for >1 year and this is the first problem I've had).I downloaded Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector and it says no wireless adapters can be found.
I have a Linksys X5000 hooked up with my home pc. The internet I get is free though the private school's network I work at (across the street) through a LAN. With a bit of wrestling I got my desktop to connect with the internet through the Linksys like an ethernet switch.I can't get my wireless devices to connect with the internet without logging in as a guest, which is annoying to do every time, especially through my iPod. They will gain access to my network, but not the internet.
Since this is a school network, my IT guy gave me a static IP address to speed up up/downloads by disabling DHCP. Every time I try to do that I get a message that "the page at 192.168.1.1 says the value can't be equal." OK, so I try to change my router's IP to 192.168.1.2 and...no luck, same message. I love working with hardware, but networking is beyond me. I don't think I can log into the guest screen in my own house any more! I am getting a new tablet in 2 days and this just won't do.
I have no Internet connection, and when I diagnose it, it will say, " plug an Ethernet cable in" when there is already one in. So I will attempt to restart it, and it will freeze when it says "Starting Windows" and it will do so every time. Until I pull the power cord from the back and plug it in again. Then it will log in fine, and the same problem will occur. I ran virus scans and nothing was infected. I had just recently got it rebooted also, twice in fact since this problem keeps reoccurring. (This computer has never blue screened or crashed) Every other device plugged into the router is working fine (Gaming consoles Xbox, and PS3). My friends laptop internet was fine also when we plugged it in using the Ethernet cable when he stayed at my place for days, also no problems with the wireless devices using the router.

using ipconfig to show static ip address when cable is unplugged, can ipconfig show static ip address when cable is unplugged? if no why? and if yes how do you make it work? anything you can edit on registry to mke it work.
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.
My client has a ~6 year old dell xps which up until about two weeks ago connected to the internet fine with a netgear usb wireless adapter (it is a desktop). When that stopped working, she ordered a Rosewill RNX-N300X (my suggestion) and I installed it.I got the driver installed and everything, it connects to the router without a problem. Her laptop also connects wirelessly to the router just fine and can browse the web without a problem. The desktop however, even when connected to the router, refuses to access the internet. I was thinking the problem was DNS related because I can ping any ip address in cmd, but can't ping actual websites like [url]... or [url]... The problem is, when I manually change the dns servers in the wireless connection properties, it disables dhcp and will not connect to the internet.Here are the ipconfig /all results for the laptop which works:

I have a laptop DELL Latitude E6500. I cannot connect it to LAN through Intel (R) 82567 LM Gigabit Network adapter. Connection is set up by DHCP. I get error message: "cable is unplugged", but cable is functional. How I can resolve this problem?
