my vaio vpcEh3f1e will not connect to the Internet, via Ethernet cable or wifi. All other laptops, iPads, mobiles are connecting fine apart from this laptop. It can connect in safe mode with networking.
I can't seem to connect to the internet via the Ethernet port on my laptop, but the built-in Wi-Fi card works perfectly fine. I normally use Wi-Fi, as our signal is very strong, even if I go outside and up the road, I can still connect.
My issue is that although I don't need it, I'd like to setup Ethernet for the first time since installing Windows 7. I've had Windows 7 since April 2011, and prior to that I used Windows Vista. From memory, I don't think Vista had any problems with connecting via Ethernet back before I moved house, but this was over two years ago.
My laptop is an ASUS X58L, and the NIC identified by Device Manager, is a Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC. Going into the properties, I can see that I have the latest Windows 7 driver installed - 6.111.723.2009, however prior to this I had the driver that came with the machine (when it was running Vista), which was 6.108.331.2008 and tried updating from Device Manager, but for some reason it said that I had the best driver already installed. To install the 2009 Windows 7 driver, I had to manually download it from Realtek. With either of the drivers, connecting via Ethernet doesn't work, and I'm confused as to what to do next.
What i am trying to do is that i have a server in my store which has a running software for the store. I have a TP Link Wifi card installed in my pc.. i need to access the server using an ip through the ethernet cable. And i access the internet via the wifi device installed and running in my pc. the problem now here is that i cannot access both of the simultaneously. If i connect back the ethernet cable the browser does not browse or the internet does not work.. and i can access my server software.. as i unplug the ethernet cable my wifi card installed starts working all good and i can use the internet.. i have tried a little of soultions but have not been successfull enough to use both the connections simultaneously..

You must realize that I live away from the city and only have an iPhone 4 for a hot spot. It connects via WiFi, Bluetooth and USB. I have found USB quicker, but it doesn't seem to work under Windows 8. So I connect via WiFi only.I have a LAN, based on a D-Link DIR-615 router. This router has a WiFi option and has a Buffalo File server attached to the device that we use as a backup/file server and personal 'cloud'. When I am connected via WiFi and I plug in the Ethernet connection, the computer overrides the WiFi and attempts to connect to the Internet via the Ethernet port. It does know that the WiFi is connected as it is displayed on the bottom of the status bar as 'Internet', but choices to ignore or not check. I have gone to the devices and changed the priority to be Wireless on top and Ethernet on the bottom. This is done via the "Network and Sharing Center", "Change Adapter Settings", ALT-F (to get "File, Edit, View, Tools, Advanced and Menu" options), "Advanced" and finally "Advanced" again.Then put them in the priority you wish. Ethernet still overrides this and times out when I attempt to access anything on the Internet. It works the same on my wife's Windows 7 Laptop. It returns to normal if you unplug the Ethernet cable. Since I wish to have other files available, it is a pain in the bottom to have to unplug the Ethernet cable every time you change over to do something else and I usually forget and have to deal with the 'can't connect' message.It might be a simple solution to connect via WiFi to the router then hard wire the computers to the router, but this hasn't been a workable option. The router doesn't seem to be able to handle that type of connection?
I'm trying to share my wifi internet from my pc to my old mac ive connected them via ethernet cable, from my understanding the mac has been assigned an ip address, but I can not use the internet on it.
I would like to connect my USB WIFI dongle directly to my wired router, this would enable me to have wifi access without having my PC switched on all the time, is this possible and if so what kind of adapter do I need? I think I need USB A Female to Ethernet RJ45 Male Router Adapter.
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.
I have an Acer aspire one netbook, model D255 which operates on Windows 7.Having trouble connecting to wifi connections. It worked fine initially, I tried turning the wifi switch on and off, it tells me that there are no wifi connections available, however everyone else Is able to connect via Wifi on their computers and myself without a problem on other devices.On troubleshooting it's says - that an Ethernet cable is broken or not plugged in properly, and is unable to fix the problem, as obviously I am not connected via any cable.I looked in network and it says that the Ethernet cable is unplugged and does not show any available networks.
I have an arris broadband modem combo and the wifi signal in the basement is poor I tryed to connect a netgear n 300 wireless router (wnr2000v3) to extend the wifi with an ethernet cable but the neatgear router does not have an internet connection.
Last week the Verizon-supplied DSL modem went bad (wasn't receiving data) and was replaced.
Now I can get Internet direct out of modem, and when I connect it to router the router's Internet light is on, but it seems to stop there. Devices connected to router via Ethernet or wifi don't get Internet.
I'm able to get to the router's admin console via Ethernet and wifi, but no Internet.
I was using my dlink dir 524 but when i change my isp i cannot connect my desktop via ethernet while the internet works good on my laptop via wifi i had done all thing by turning off firewall but no luck i was using xp on my desktop and windows 7 on laptop.
I have a desktop computer that I recently installed Windows xp on, and the computer is now missing the drivers. The problem is that the computer was built by a friend and I do not know exactly what drivers that may be needed for this computer connect to the web.
I recently bought my desktop home from my uni dorm and i can't seem to connect to the "unidentified network" which would be my home network. The Ethernet cable is flashing orange and my routers LAN port light is orange. Below is my current ipconfig.
In my college dorm, there are ethernet plugs in the wall. Yesterday, the internet was working fine, but today, when I tried using the internet, it'll connect to the (router? group?), but it won't connect to the internet. I've tried the same plug with my roommate's Macbook, and it worked just fine, so I am assuming it is a problem with my computer (or my own incompetence). Normally, I would just try restarting my modem, but that isn't an option here.
My router has been working fine until yesterday when it randomly stopped functioning for me. I can only connect to it via wireless. Other computers in my house can connect directly to it though. I have tried cycling the modem and router. Reinstalled drivers. Nothing, it just constantly says "identifying" for less than a second then reappear in a constant cycle. [code]
I have two computers in my house that are connected via ethernet using a switch. One computer is connected to a friends internet connection by wireless using a satellite dish. That computer is on XP and I have configured it as follows (IPv4)[CODE]
All of a sudden whenever I reboot my PC it can no longer see the router (ie it won't show up anything when I type in http://192.168.1.1) Usually I just mess about rebooting the router or reinitialising the network card (as instructed by the wizard!) eventually this works.... but not today...I can't connect - all the time the laptop connected wirelessly to the same router works fine. It's set up to obtain an automatic ip address whatever that means, could this be the problem ?? When I ping 192.168.1.1 (an instruction I found on another forum) it doesn't work..
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 have my bigpond internet setup on my main pc,works fine connected to a router but i want to connect to the internet via ethernet cable on my 2nd pc. I have a ethernet port on the wall near it so that should work. I don't want to run a long ethenet cable from my router to my 2nd pc because there's a ethernet port right next to it.
Am trying to fix my husband's computer, which seems to eb ok except that it cannot connect to the internet. The connection is wired and works fine (my computer, next to his, works well). I have tried pinging google.com and cannot resolve, but pinging numerical addresses works fine.

My homemade computer onto the internet through Ethernet. I have a cable attached to my computer and it is lighting up as if it were working but I am not connected to a network. I know it is not a problem with my Ethernet cable because I have tried it on other computers successfully. When I entered ipconfig/all in the command prompt it showed up with media state as disconnected and no IP address.
I just did a fresh install of Windows XP 64 on an old computer (Asus) in my house. It's connected to an ethernet cable, but when I try to go online it says there is no connection and explorer "Cannot find server".I'm getting so frustrated.
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 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.
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.
My family just gave me their old Mac desktop, I wiped it clean and then tried to connect to the internet at my house and it tells me I have invalid password for the wireless. I also tried to connect it directly via ethernet cable that works and it will not connect. I want to connect my Mac directly with ethernet. All the other computers with internet work in my house so I know its not the internet. I will post below my computer specs and internet specs which I got from my other windows PC. I've tried manually putting in the ISP and DNS and nothing works.
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 hp g60 230us. The hard drive crashed so I installed a new one. Then I installed new vista ultimate 64 bit. I plugged into desktop's netgear router with ethernet and still wont connect to internet. When I go start/run/regedit in local services there is no wireless listing on bottom to enable. When I try to connect it says there is problem with Realtek Nic and only shows Broadband ppoev, something. T hought maybe I need drivers from hp to make everything work again but having trouble. Downloaded network to file then burned to dvd r on other laptop. Not sure how to load onto laptop in question (hpg60 230us). Also tried command prompt/ ipconfig.
