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.

My tablet pc, came without wifi mac address, so it doesnt have wifi but it does have internet using the cable


You should be able to purchase the necessary cable from your local computer store to connect your tablet to your router. Of course you will then be limited to being able to use your tablet only as far from your router as the length of the cable. There should be a way for you to find out the MAC address for your WiFi depending on which version of Windows you are using.

If you are using XP:

1) Go to your Start button, click on Run.., and when the command window opens type 'ipconfig /all' into the window.

2) The system will list all of the network adapters present on the tablet, and below the name of the adapter will be a line headed with Physical Address. This will be your MAC Address.


If you are using Vista

1) Follow the instructions above that were given for XP, and again when you look at the Physical Address you will see your MAC Address.


If you are using Windows 7:

1) Open the Network and Sharing Center > Local Area Connection > Details > Physical Address. You will want to make sure that the Local Area Connection you choose will be the built in WiFi of your tablet.

2) A box will open up with details on your Network connections, and the third item down will be the Physical Address.


Take the Physical Address information that you have received from the correct sequence above, and use it in your Router Setup to allow your tablet to connect using WiFi.

I have a wireless router, my vista laptop is upstairs in my room, my wireless network connection is working. but the "local area connection" says that there is a network cable unplugged. but i have...


"local area connection" is the wired connection, which in your case is "unplugged" If you go to control panel and look in connections, you will see that you are connected with the wireless, if you right click on the wireless there is a checkbox to display the status on your toolbar along side of the "Local Area Connection" Hope that clears it up a little

No network connection for windows xp


Hello kenji, hi, it would really help if you could add more information about the no connection problem, anyway there are several reason why you have no connection;
  1. Bad Lan card, or built in lan port,
  2. Lan card device driver not properly installed, check your driver CD.
  3. loose lan cable. check using a lan cable tester device.
  4. bad router or router setup.
  5. bad dsl or modem setup.
  6. bad telephone connection. check also telephone cable.
  7. no internet service, call your ISP.
  8. if you are using a wireless lan card, check the device.
  9. bad Operating system installation.
  10. check your connectivity setup, is it enabled?
Go through each from one to ten, see which one is the fault.

A network cable is unplugged


OK, in order to solve this problem, I will need more information:

1) What is your operating system (i.e. Windows XP? Windows Vista?)

2) Is this a laptop or a desktop computer?

3) If it is a laptop, is there a switch on the case that turns on and off the wireless ability? Check your user manual - it might be as simple as turning on the wireless switch.

4) If it is a desktop, what kind of wireless adapter did you install?

I'll be able to help more when I get this information. In the meantime, here are a few things you can do:

First of all, you need to delete all of the duplicate connections from Network Connections. They won't really hurt, but they're not helping either. To delete them, just right-click on them one at a time and choose "delete."

Next, you need to understand what the message "a network cable is unplugged" refers to: this has nothing to do with wireless. If there is no actual hard-wire cable connected to your computer, the port (that's the opening that you plug a network cable into) will tell Windows that it is empty. This results in the message "a network cable is unplugged." You can ignore it, or - if you plan to use this computer with a wireless connection only - you can right-click on the connection in Network Connections and choose "disable." This stops the message from appearing, and can be reversed (enable) at any time.

I look forward to hearing from you.
