Assuming you are talking about the onboard ethernet..... First make sure it is enabled in the system bios, and make sure it is working in the device manager (control panel). If the device manager indicates a problem with your network card, you have to sort this out first.

If this is all fine, open a command prompt in windows and type "Ping 127.0.0.1" and see if you get a response. If you get a response, then your network card is okay, and you may just have a bad network cable, which is quite common. If you don't get a response from this command, then your network card is bad and you need to replace it. If it is onboard, just disable it in bios and install a PCI network card.

If the ping command gives you a response from the card, replace the cable first. Otherwise, it could be a router, if you have one, or the modem.

Wont read ethernet cable


i guess what you are saying is that the ethernet cable doesn't bring you any connectivity. try to replace the cable (maybe it's faulty or a crossover cable and your router/switch doesn't have audo mdx option)
also check if your ethernet card is installed (drivers) and enabled

you can set your playstation 3 online by two ways, 1- by a wired connection, and 2- Wireless,

1-Wired Connection: Plug an ethernet cable from your highspeed modem to the back ethernet input on your ps3 system, and follow on your ps3: Network Connection > Internet Connection Settings > Easy > Wired Connection. and follow steps
2- Wireless Connection: You must have a Router connecting ethernet cable from your intenet modem to the router, and follow on your ps3: Network Connection > Internet Connection Settings > Easy > Wireless Connection and follow steps,

hope this helped you on setting up your ps3 connection :)

Adding a PCI ethernet card?


One port on the router is an "Ethernet" port -- look closely to see the 8 wires in the socket.

You'll need a similar 8-wire connector on your computer,
and an "Ethernet-cable" that has 8 strands of wire.

Adding-in the PCI Ethernet card will add an 8-wire connector,
so that the Ethernet-cable can be connected.

Be sure to buy a 'PCI' Ethernet adapter, not 'PCI-E', and not 'ISA'.
It may come with a CD-ROM containing software to be installed.

Don't pay more than $20. Or, find a "computer-geek" -- he/she probably will have one or more "spare" PCI Ethernet cards to give to you.

Compaq Preario SR 1208AN ethernet connector faulty


Have you spent about $5 and tried a different Ethernet cable?

Look at: http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00251993/c00251993.pdf

For your desktop computer, the Ethernet adapter is integrated into the motherboard. So, to replace the connector, you will have to replace the motherboard, costing over $200, unless your computer is still eligible for service via the HP warranty.

It would be much easier & cheaper (under $20) to purchase a PCI Ethernet card, install it into an empty PCI slot, install the software from the CD-ROM that came with the card, and connect the Ethernet cable to this card, rather than to the integrated socket.

Computer needs ethernet card for highspeed internet


It depends on your computer and your operating system, but generally if you have USB ports with a Windows-based machine, then you can use a USB ethernet adapter. You plug the adaptor into your USB port, then the ethernet cable into the adapter.

Almost any electronics supply store ie Circuit City, Best Buy, plus Walmart and other big discount stores carry USB Ethernet Adapters. You can also try your local mom 'n' pop computer supply store.

I'm posting a link to a DLink adapter as an example *only.* There are other brand names out there that would probably do just as well.

Hope this helps!

for dial up simply a modem .... on laptops if you do not have a builtin modem you can purchase a pc-card modem that goes into your pcmcia slot ... for highspeed either a ethernet (same option as modem) but almost all modern laptops have a built in ethernet ... or usb ... also I highly recommend a router if you are going highspeed ... even if you only have one computer ... a router will protect your system because it provides a NAT firewall. If you go with a router make sure to set up the internet connection on the router do not tunnel through the router with a PPPoE connection
