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.

    Im connecting straight from the modem with an ethernet cable, I've tested the ethernet cable on a desktop and it works fine. My modem is connecting fine to the internet and my desktop can browse without a problem. My ethernet port on the laptop itself is not seeing that a cable is even plugged into it. Is there a way to enable to the ethernet within the bios?

- 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:

    If the NIC is disabled in the BIOS, then you will not see the adpater in "Network Connections" and it will not be listed in Device Manager either.

    If you have went though the Microsoft Link that I sent you ealier and none of the steps helped, then the only thing I can think of is Your NIC has gone bad or if you are not seeing any status lights on the Nic when it is plugged in, then check the 8 PINs on the NIC, one of them maybe bent or missing.

Network cable not properly plugged in or may be broken

which OS do you have? XP, Vista, 7, etc. you must have a wireless adapter in your PC to use wireless and it must be enabled.
if not wireless, then you must have an ethernet slot with cable(CAT5) inserted from internet modem/router. if you have a laptop then you have wireless available. there is a key on keyboard to turn wireless on. you have to have your Network assigned to the wireless internet provider too. if you have cable(cat5) connected to a modem or router/modem connection, and you see an ethernet icon in your lower right corner window(looks like a little computer display), then you have an ethernet connection. if not then either the cable is bad or the modem/router is not producing a connection to pc. thats alot i know but i have little knowledge about your internet connection on your pc. you have not given that to me to use

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.

How to connect xbox360 to internet with laptop

Hello bernelltaylo,

This is a very simple procedure, but pay close attention.

First, here are the requirements to attempt this procedure.

- An Ethernet Cable,
- Wireless Connected Laptop
- Bridged Connection Eligibility

1. Get an Ethernet cable, they are commonly blue, or yellow.

2. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the back of your Xbox 360 console, and the other end of your Laptop.

3. Log onto your laptop, (assuming you're using Windows), and find the list of your wireless/wired connections.

4. You'll see something like, "Local Area Connection 2", and "Wireless Network Connection 3". Make sure you're already connected to the Wireless Network before continuing to the next step.

5. Highlight both the connections, and right click one of them. Click on, "Add a Bridge".

6. A process will start which will bridge the connections, enabling your laptop to work as a modem for your Xbox 360. This may take as long as anywhere between seconds, to minutes.

7. When it's done, do NOT remove the Ethernet cable, until your desire to disconnect from the internet on your Xbox 360.

Hope this helped, see ya' later. :)

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.

My internet doesn't work

Plug a different computer into your cable-modem or DSL-modem, to see if that computer can successfully use the modem to access the Internet.

Try a different Ethernet-cable between your modem and your computer, to see if that fixes anything.

Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Network Connections
Under the "Local Area Connection" icon, do you see "network cable unplugged", or "disabled" ?
If so, connect the cable, or right-mouse-click on the icon, and choose "enable".
