That message always comes up if you have the driver loaded for the ethernet port but no cable connected to it. If you are not actually using the port, don't worry about it. Everything is fine.

"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

My toshiba laptop does not work on a lan. The icon


When you look at the Manage Network Connections link on the Network and Sharing Center you do not see
Local Area Connection?
Do you see Wireless Network connection?
You need to check the device manager to see if the card has been disabled.

It should show two entries with no red or yellow marks. One for wireless (WLAN) and one for wired (Ethernet)

What is a local Area connection? My laptop doesn't work, but my desktop does?


Local area connection is the wired network interface card on the computer. On a laptop you'll see the port on the side or back. If you have a internet cable conencted to the port you'll be able to access internet on a wired conenction. Most likely you are conencted wirelessly on the laptop so it shows the local area connection disconnected.

Media disconnected


If you are using one box (or modem/router) only, when your computer says media disconnected, it means that your computer does not detect your modem. 
You can try unplugging and replugging the ethernet at the back of your computer or laptop. make sure that the light on the ethernet port is lit up (especially for desktops, not sure about laptops though).
You can also do the same process with the ethernet cable from your modem/router. if your modem/router has other ethernet ports in it, try to connect it to other ports as well. If your computer still says media disconnected, try purchasing or borrowing a new ethernet cable. 
Also make sure that your ethernet adapter is working properly and that media disconnected follows after ethernet adapter local area connection and not wireless connection.
Hope this helps!

Try diagnose and repaire the connection if that does not work Reset your modem it should go back to default manufacture setup.Then turn modem off and connect any computer or laptop to the modem with ethernet wire turn the modem on go back to your computer that you are connected to modem with wire go to network connections and disable the wireless Network connection and enable local area connection once you see you have connected and have internet working go to start menu you can do this on the start search bar with vista or run with any other windows version type cmd and press enter, it should bring a DOS command menu and then type in ipconfig and enter scroll up and down to where you see default gateway type that ip address to your internet browser it should take you to login screen username should be administrator password admin setup your WEB key make the wireless access available DO NOT FORGET to write the web key down, give a name to the connection and change the default password from admin to something you can remember. save the settings and turn that off keep the laptop on. Then unplug the ethernet cable and switch the network connectiion again enable wireless disable local area also you need to scan the available wireless internet and pick the one you just named use the webkey to access and save when the connection in made.

Can not connect wirelessly with router


The list of wireless routers that are available in Windows is very limited and the signal strength of any router that is detected is weak. This can occur when the Lite-On USB Wireless 802.11 b/g hardware and Windows are not able to fully synchronize the signal strength data. Figure 1: Example of detected wireless devices when the antenna cable wire is connected to secondary port c01153759.jpg Figure 2: Example of detected wireless devices in the same environment when the antenna cable wire is connected to primary port c01153760.jpg To correct this error , download and install Lite-On USB Wireless LAN Driver Update (sp35177) (in English) from the HP Web site. This update should only be applied if your PC has the Lit-On USB Wireless LAN adapter and is exhibiting the symptom. As a work-around, you can connect the wire that runs from the wireless antenna port to the primary port on the cord as follows: CAUTION: This product contains components that can be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (like a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap connected to a grounded surface.
  1. Open the side panel.
  2. Find the wireless networking board by following the antenna wire connected to the wireless networking antenna port on the back of the computer. Figure 3: Wireless networking hardware c01153761.jpg 1 - Wireless network board 2 - Antenna wire 3 - Wireless networking antenna port
  3. Very carefully, disconnect the small wire from the board by gently pulling the end of the wire away from the board.
  4. Connect the wire to the other available port on the board. Figure 4: Available port c01153762.jpg
  5. Replace the side panel, connect the power cord, turn on the computer, and use the computer again to verify that wireless signal strengths have improved.

Unable to detect my router


This is because your router is setting your pc at a different IP address than your original modem. Make sure router is set to enable DHCP which gives out an automatic ip address and check your wireless card and network cards are set to obtain ip address automatically. It may take a few re-starts to get on the internet as your systems will need to clear their previous DNS settings. Also i assume you have set up the home network wizard (XP) as you are now using a router and not a direct modem. Also try Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.
