You need a pcmcia Ethernet card because it sounds like your computer isn't equipped with Ethernet.

My dell GX620 desktop does not power when ever I plug in the network (RJ 45) cable. Also if the system has boots to desktop, and I plug in the network cable it automatically goes off.


1) Does it have a separate Ethernet Card, or is it integrated?
(Part of the motherboard)

Reasoning?

The Dell Optiplex GX620 comes with Integrated networking.
The chipset is a Broadcom 572.
It's part of the motherboard, and you plug the Ethernet Cable into the back of the computer.

However, you could have a separate Ethernet Card, plugged into the white PCI expansion slot on the motherboard.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Optiplex-GX620-SFF-Motherboard-F8101-KH290-PY423-20-Available-/370743464509?pt=Motherboards&hash=item565208523d

A) If you are using a separate Ethernet Card, replace it.

B) If you are using the Intergrated networking of the motherboard, (Plug Ethernet cable into back of computer), use an Ethernet Card instead.

White PCI slot.

You have a short circuit when you plug the Ethernet Cable into the motherboard. Don't use the motherboard networking, use an Ethernet Card.

2) Plugging an Ethernet Cable into a computer that is on, = No.
It is not a Plug N' Play item.

(Not stating this is what you are doing.
Just posting in case you are. Burns out the Ethernet chipset on the motherboard)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Where is the ethernet cable connected to this laptop


This is an older laptop that comes with a modem (RJ-11 on the back), not an ethernet adapter onboard. You can try to get a PC card ethernet adapter (type 2 or type 3 fit the slot) or a USB ethernet adapter. The USB port was not available on models that came with WinNT.

I wish I could be of more help.

How do i hook my xbox up to my computer to get on xbox live?


hi,

just to elaborate on zombies post.....
Zombie is correct in what she says...but in 'Laymans' terms.........
you dont need to hook up your xbox to ur computer to get 'On Live' .
The easiest way is a direct 'Ethernet' lead (plugged into the back of ur 360....(dont worry....u cant put it in the wrong slot....an ethernet lead will only fit an ethernet slot)) & the other end into an empty Ethernet slot on your broadband suppliers router (the little box they sent you which is plugged into ur fone line)....there are usually '4' ethernet slots on most routers ! once the ethernet lead is plugged in just follow on screen instructions (xbox) for 'signing' up to 'Xbox Live' :-)

hope this is a little easier to understand ??

p.s. Dont get ripped off buying an ethernet lead if u havnt got one long enuf ! dont let the shops tell you ur better off with 'Gold' plated ones !! its rubbish !! u dont need gold plated !
the usual 'bay' shop (u know who i mean??) have numerous suppliers....u dont want to be paying more than £5 for at least a 5 metre one !

p.p.s dont bother with the wireless adapters !! there pants !


good luck :-)

Is there an ethernet cable that will fit into a panasonic cf28 toughbook laptop as i need this in order to get it to go wireless


If there's an ethernet socket on the computer then there's a cable to fit it.
Most computers today have ethernet as standard (the socket and cable have been standard for years).
Why do you have to use the ethernet to connect wirelessly? Normally just activating the wifi in the computer and logging into the router is all that is needed.

I opened my case for my computer to fix a loose piece and i pulled out my ethernetlink10/100 pci and i was wondering if u could describe where to plug it back in, there is a cord i dont know where to plug...


If you mean the ethernet cable that plugs into the back of the computer, please look at the photo below.  490d71a.jpg
the similar but slightly smaller modem socket may be also present, but don't worry as the ethernet cable won't fit as the sock is smaller.

You can call the provider where you got the card and they can tell you where to go on the net to download the program that connects it. Its free if you can find out what the card reads or what kind it is.

Internet connection


There are 3 ways to connect to the internet. Using a modem with a phone line, an ethernet cable that is hooked up to a high speed internet connection or using wireless. If the laptop does not have a modem, it may have wireless or an ethernet port. Ethernet is slightly larger than a phone jack. If there is wireless there should be a button to turn it on and off somewhere along the top of the laptop where the keyboard is. You could also put get type of those connections on a PCMCIA card which fits into the credit card like slots on the side.
