I cannot access my LAN from my newly installed Network Adapter.
I have a LAN with 4 hard wired devices connected to it (three workstations and one networked printer). I wanted to free up one of the hard wire ports on my AT&T router so I purchased a Dynex USB Network Adapter and installed it. I have no problem accessing the internet but I no longer can see any of the other computers or the printer on the Local Area Network.

Check for any firewall that were installed with the new NIC card. Also ensure that you are still on the same network as your printers and other devices. You can check the IP address of your computer by opening a command prompt and typing ipconfig. To open a command prompt click start and then run. Then type cmd. Do this both on your computer that can not see the printer and other devices and from one of the computers that can see the printer. The IP's should be similar. For example they should both start with 192.168.xxx.xxx or 10.xxx.xxx.xxx.

Assuming you can get the driver (which comes as a file, i.e. software, not hardware) how would you install it on your TV ?
According to the 'Technical Information' link on the Web page that you can access via the link I attached with my answer, your adapter is compatible with WiFi-ready Samsung TVs and AV equipment produced between 2010 and 2012. If your TV is not a WiFi-ready Samsung TV or is one produced before 2010, well....If it is a Samsung TV produced after 2012, it probably has WiFI built-in, in which case you don't need any wireless LAN adapter, Samsung or otherwise and the TV did not recognize the adapter because the USB port on the TV that you plugged the adapter in is meant to be used for other devices, e.g. flash drives or portable hard drives.
Boot the machine at first. If the problem still remains, make sure you have installed latest network card drivers from manufacturors site. You can also try to disable the network interface card, then enable it.
It appears you are not using the wireless connections on both the routers and the reason for using Router B was that there were insufficient LAN ports on Router A to connect to the two workstations that are connected to Router B. To simplify your network, I suggest you replace Router B with a network hub or ethernet switch and connect the two workstations to this network hub/switch, then configure these two workstation to Obtain an IP address automatically. Router A will then issue IP address to these workstations via the network hub/switch.

first you have to check whether the LAN drivers are installed properly to find whether LAN card is installed properly right click my computer then properties then hard ware then device manager then in network adapters do you see a circle with yellow color uninstall and reinstall the LAN driver then restart your system then click start run and type cmd and click enter then type ipconfig /release after ipconfig is release type ip config /renew then type ping 192.168.0 1 you will see the files pinging it means the computer is connected the modem if not pinging go to network connection in your control panel then right click you default device then click networking then select internet protocol and click properties make sure obtain an ip address and dns is marked if not mark them then save and exit
I got your issue , for your issue , I f you want to go online hard wired to the router , make sure the Local are connection in the comp is enabled as well you have coted that u can see red cross in the wireless network connection icon, so make sure do not have any preferred networks in the comp.
Hi Jackie! It sounds like a communication problem between the router and the computer. Try the following solutions to solve
1.Connect the LAN cable to other free LAN port in the router.
2. Try using a different LAN cable.
3. a. Open Device Manager b. Go to Network adapters. Click on the "+" sign next to it. c. Double-click on your network adapter. d. On Advanced tab, look for Speed/duplex settings (or Media Type) and change it's value to Full autonegotiation (or AutoSelect). e. Click OK on all windows. f. Close the Device Manager and restart your computer.
4. Reinstall or update your network adapter device drivers.
A "workaround" solution - use a wireless network adapter to connect wirelessly to the router.
You can actually try accessing the interface of your gateway and put it on DMZ mode. That way it will open the ports on your gateway to ensure passage of all data from your gateway to all your computers even when the dsl is on. But make sure tat you have security software installed on all your computer workstations bec. putting your 2WIRE gateway on DMZ mode will expose your connection.
Yes the network card is the same ethernet card. If your intel pro/100 is onboard try to re install the driver from the motherboard drvier. Check also in the manager device it the network device have a complex to the other device. Follow this, Click START then RUN type DEVMMGMT.MSC then enter check if the network adapter have a yellow question mark. If you found the network adapter right click and uninstall it.and click the ACTION and click SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES. After the installation finished try to connect to the internet. If still the same even you input the correct ip in the network configuration. Buy a new LAN card it's not expensive, because usually the onboard lan is easy to damage or not working properly you can installed and configured it but you cannot connect to the internet.
