Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
I just had cable installed and the person doing it told me that the cable highspeed coudlnt be turned own do to a faulty ethernet hook up. How do I fix it? It doesnt lite up at all? No response! Can someone please save me from hthe perils of dialup?!?!?!?!?!
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.
