Ethernet not seeing network cable when plugged in

When I plug in my ethernet cable to connect my laptop to the internet my network icon tells me that the network cable is unplugged. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the ethernet card from device manager but that doens't seem to fix the problem, I still get the same error message. I checked the Bios but I can't find anywhere to enable or disable hardware in there so Im probably looking in the wrong spot. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Ethernet not seeing network cable when plugged in

- If you have wireless card enabled, disable it to see if it fixes the issue. - Did you try a different cable that you know works for sure? -Go to the laptop manufacturer site and download the latest driver, it may help. -Try a different port on your router (if you have one), if you don't then check to see if the cable is secured. -reset your modem and router. -Are you using the correct cable type? make sure it is a straight-throug cable and not a cross-over cable. Here are some more troubleshooting tips from microsoft:

Trying to connect to internet cant find wireless & cant find a ethernet place either

The laptop in question does not have a place to plug in the ethernet cable. The laptop is not fitted with wi-fi or bluetooth adapters either. The best and cheapest way to connect this laptop to the internet is using a PCMCIA Card Adapter (type two or three as both are supported.) such as the product supplied by linksys. If yours is similar to the one in the photo then it should include a cable with the required network connection on the end. The "linksys" card you mentioned is no doubt the correct one, but minus the vital cable!

How do I connect my laptop into an existing LAN network?

Unless you have some security in place or messed with the adapter settings, plugging it into an Ethernet cable should be enough to get it connected.

Ethernet and wireless not working

The wireless sounds like its not working or the drivers are not installed.

The Ethernet port may have been programmed with a static IP address or you do not have a DHCP on the network your plugging into.
open the network and sharing centre by right clicking on the network icon by the clock.

Then local area network.
Then properties.
Then internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
The display should look like this :-

Computer won't recognise ethernet connection from router

I don't know the make. model, of laptop or your OS? Open network connections, is it enabled? Is there a Network Icon in the Tray Notification Area? You really do not need a Disk to connect. Just plug in the ethernet and boot the machine.The computer should ID the connection, if it enabled and working properly. If not open Device Manager , Network Adapters and enable the ethernet adapter.For further assistance respond to post.

Ethernet issues.

Can you plug pick up internet with a different laptop in the same place? If another laptop can plug in with the same ethernet cable and get a signal then you know its "your" laptop and not the cable or the connection, If it is your laptop that is the problem, check to see if your network card is working properly by going into device manager. My guess is you need a new network card.

The thinkpad T-40 will not open the internet

Have you ever used this computer to get onto the internet?
To do so, you will need to have the computer connected to either a WIFI network or attached via an Ethernet cable to a modem or router which is itself connected to the internet.

Assuming you are doing this at home and have an internet service and a router or modem that is connected to your internet service provider, the best way to get started is to connect a cat-5 or cat-6 Ethernet cable to the computer and router. The Ethernet cable looks like a fat phone cable. Your modem or router should have sockets labeled as 'to computer' or 'to LAN' and 'to WWW' or 'to Internet'. The cable going to your computer should be plugged into one of the jacks going to the LAN or computer (depending on the terms they use).

Depending on how your Windows OS is set up, you may see a little icon in the lower right next to the clock that is a picture of 2 mini computers overlapped. Ideally, before you plugged in the cable, there was a little red X over one of the computers and now there is a little blue earth. If so, you are good-2-go.

If not, you will need to go into your 'Control Panels' which is off the start menu (picture of the windows icon in the lower right corner). In your control panels you will find an option that is called something like 'network setup' and from there you will find an option for 'Set up a network connection'. To help you further I would need to know which flavor of Windows you are running and ideally what sort of ISP you are using, and what sort of home router (if any) you are using.

Good luck.

1. Try different cable if possible.
2. Check the network port of the laptop. Make sure the pins are in tact and there is no dust/dirt or anything blocking the port.
3. Verify the other end as well. Check the hub/modem/switch or whatever you are plugging into. Make sure it's securely plugged in.
4. If plugging into a router, make sure you aren't plugged into the Uplink or Modem port. If it's a simple 4 port hub, avoid plugging into the uplink port as well.
5. If you have a cable modem that plugs into a router then into your computer, test by powering everything down. Plug the laptop directly into modem's ethernet port. Turn power on to modem. Turn power on to laptop. Check your network light and test internet. If it works there's something wrong with router. If it doesn't, look to the cable for issues.
6. Lastly, if none of those steps worked, remove the ethernet driver and reboot laptop. Let Windows detect the ethernet card, then re-install the driver choosing to overwrite the existing. Know that Windows will tell you you're device is ok just because a driver loaded successfully. It doesn't always know if the driver is the correct one.
