Hi,

If your wireless router has a strong connection then is your Laptop trying to connect to the correct Connection. Sounds like your talking about Fixed ethernet connection?

How many connections have you created in the "my networks" area?


Let me know,

Thanks.

What type of ethernet cable should I buy and how do I connect it?


May need a little more info.
wifi is cordless.There is no cord involved; but your computer needs to be fitted with a circuit and you need to have access to the radio signal.
If you don't have wifi, any ethernet cable will do to reach from where you work to an ethernet connection provided by your school. They are at RadioShack, Lowes, or Walmart.

My lenovo keeps on disconnecting for the internet


Troubleshooting your wireless connection via your Lenovo computer is not a task that requires familiarity with wireless networks or a vast level of computer troubleshooting knowledge.


You can repair Lenovo wireless problems ranging from browser setting errors to hardware connection issues and the only item you will need on hand is the owner's manual that was shipped with your router.


You will not require any additional devices or tools and should not have to resort to the expensive aid of a technician.


Launch the web browser you normally operate and check the "Work Offline" settings.

Click on the top toolbar where it says "File" and scroll down to where it says "Work Offline."


Ensure this selection is not checked, otherwise it will impede the operation of your wireless connection.

Click on this option to uncheck it.


Look over the connection made between your modem and wireless router.

Both devices have an Ethernet port on the rear.


It looks like an oversized telephone cord port. If these ports are not occupied by an Ethernet cable, connect one end of the cable to each device.

This connection cannot be loose.


Check your records for the password to your Lenovo wireless setup if you have a secured connection.

(A secured connection is recommended).

If you cannot find your password in your records, you will need to reset it.


Find the manual that shipped with your router and extract two important pieces of information. The first is the special web address the manufacturer provided for you to set up your router's settings; the second is the default password for your router.


Enter the web address from the manual into the web browser and click "Enter."

When prompted, input the default password from the wireless router.


Choose a new password for your wireless connection now that you have access to the settings.

Additionally, ensure the kind of wireless security you are using is "WPA." "WEP" is another available option, but it is an older encryption type and is technically inferior.


Click on the wireless network icon on the right side of the bottom toolbar in Windows on your Lenovo computer.

A list of wireless networks within range of your Lenovo computer will appear.


Click on the name of your wireless network and input your new password when prompted.

Look to the bottom right of your Windows desktop.


You should get a notification stating that you have successfully joined the network.


Hope this helps

Unable to connect to internet despite connection confirmed


Improve the FixYa experience for everyone by voting.

I'm going to provide you with some generic approaches in an attempt to solve your problem.

First: Microsoft will perform a complete systems check for you in three clicks with their FixIt app. CLICK HERE and Microsoft will fix (repair) any Windows related problems that might be causing your problem.


Second: It is important to connect the modem to the router before you configure the modem in order to verify communication between them. If the cabling is incorrect, the rest of the process fails.

As a rule, external modems are built with a female data communications equipment (DCE) DB-25 port for connection to a controlling device such as a PC or a router

Connecting the modem using the network cable to the wrong port of the router (other than the WAN port) is easy to identify. You can easily troubleshoot the problem. In some cases, you may correctly setup the wireless router connection but you use the wrong cable type in connecting the modem to the router. Cross type UTP cable must be used in connecting the Ethernet port of the modem to the WAN port of the router. But this is not always true. Today, many types of wireless routers (and any LAN Switches) embedded their Ethernet ports (either WAN or LAN ports) with Auto-sensing type port (auto-MDIX LAN). It means that you can use either cross-type or straight-through-type network cable for the Ethernet port connections. The system will detect the cable type and automatically adjust the ports signal accordingly.

It appears that the ethernet connection from the laptop to the replicator is bad.
This will likely need to be serviced by a qualified Acer repair facility.
Your other option (likely cheaper too) is to simply get a USB ethernet connector to use when it's docked.

Connect ethernet cable


It sounds like you are setting up your new laptop to connect to your cable modem. If that is correct, your laptop should only have one ethernet port. The other port should be for the modem, but it does look very similar to the ethernet port. I would highly suggest getting an inexpensive router to place between your laptop and your cable modem. The routers come with detailed instructions on how to connect it to the cable modem and the computer. This will provide 2 things for you. The first is ease of connection, and the second is protection from all of the bad stuff on the Internet.

Ethernet


What you need to do is get and Internet ISP so you get on the internet. The Ethernet is the network you use to connect to a DSL or Cable modem to to use the Internet. You won't need to use the wireless unless your modem is wireless capable. The modems can also be used with a USB connection from the computer to the modem.
Hope this is of some help. Bud
