my toshiba laptop does not work on a lan. The icon


When you look at the Manage Network Connections link on the Network and Sharing Center you do not see
Local Area Connection?
Do you see Wireless Network connection?
You need to check the device manager to see if the card has been disabled.

It should show two entries with no red or yellow marks. One for wireless (WLAN) and one for wired (Ethernet)

I HAVE A BUILT-IN NETWORK ADAPTER IN MY COMPUTER FUJITSU, M0DEL FMV 6000CX2 HOW CAN I INSTALL IT AND MAKE IT WORK.


Normally it is automatic enable.
U can see a local network connection (LAN) icon appear under network connection. The icon will show u unplugged if u did not connect to any network or devices.

If u did not see the LAN icon, then u need to check under device manager whether there is any missing driver.
