So I restarted the laptop and the modem. Cox even sent me a technician to see if something was wrong with the modem. I was informed that something might be wrong with my laptop.

It seems as though my laptop doesn't even recognize if the ethernet cord is plugged in or not. I have no internet connection even though my bro has internet connection with the same ethernet cord plugged onto this.

Please help!!!

P.S. I was researching and read "Ethernet port??" on FixYa - that it might be a driver glitch. I was somewhat following the instructions and I do not see "ethernet or network controller in the device manager...

Can I disable wireless and connect with ethernet cord and modem, for work do not want remove wireless cord, in the day want to be able to use my wireless.


Are you talking about direct-connecting via Ethernet to a cable or DSL modem? You shouldn't have to disable wireless to do that. If the cable modem has an open Ethernet port, you should be able to run a straight-thru Ethernet Cat-5 cable between that port and the Ethernet port on your laptop. The laptop should recognize that it is connected to the modem through the direct connection. Check the manual for the cable modem or information supplied by your ISP for connection details. You may have to do some setup on the modem to get an Internet connection, like having your ISP 'activate' the modem. Just be sure your Ethernet cable is a straight-thru, standard Ethernet cable, and not a 'cross-over' cable such as is used to transfer data between two computers.

Hi,

Your ethernet card is not working and it seems to be damaged so if your laptop in under warranty so replace it free from the service center. Otherwise they will take charges for this replacement.

Here are my recommendations for this issue:

1. Reseat the battery.
2. Remove All External Components
3. Check the battery connectors on the battery and the system. Examine the connector on the battery and the system. Make sure that there is no physical damage and that it is clear of debris.
4. Remove All External Components
5. Try a known-good battery in the system, if available.

Network problems connecting to internet


Hi. If Dell is correct, then yes, it would be expensive. Your other alternative is to buy a PCMCIA Ethernet Card. They range from about $20 to $40. Or, you could go with what you suggested and do wireless via a wireless router.
