Running windows xp.local area connection says network cable unplugged.Thats not the case,all cables connected. local area connection 2 says limited or no connectivity


On local area connection 2, right click and goto properties. Now scroll down to the 'internet protocol version 4' or 'tcp/ip' and click properties again.

Make sure that everything is set to automatic if it is not. If you have a router than the router may refuse a connection attempt from your PC if it is not setup to assign DHCP address. If this is the case then you will have to setup a address manually.

Won't connect to the Internet


If you are using a dialup connection, the ethernet connection would not have anything to do with your problem. Be sure the cable is plugged into the line socket. Take a repular phone and plug it into the telephone socket on the computer and see if you get a dial tone. Be sure you have entered the number correctly including a 1 and area code if required. You may want to call the number your computer is trying to call to see if you hear modem tones ( to be sure the number is correct). If all that is in order, your friends are probably right and your modem is bad. It may be covered under warranty.
