You will have to open up your network connections.
Click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled.
Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look for network adapters + expand Ethernet driver if you see a yellow Question / Exclamation mark ? ! or a Red X you will need to update/reinstall the driver for the device
You only need check the following if you cant install the driver

SOURCE: trying ti install my dsl-2640b wireless g adsl2+modem router

If you have plugged the ethernet cable directly into the motherboard, make sure the onboard lan is enabled in the bios, if you have plugged into a pci nic adapter you will have to install a driver for it, winxp should have the driver for your adapter other than that I cannot help any further.

best of luck

SOURCE: Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

SOURCE: 2wire Wireless router not working w/Comcast cable modem

Its almost impossible to connect a 2wire DSL router with a Cable modem. They dont go hand in hand.
Although you can connect the outgoing ethernet wire from the modem in the last ethernet plug on the back of the router and then have the ethernet connections coming from the router. But not wireless. and if you find a way, contact me at jneal2k9@hotmail.com

If the red light is your DSL light it means you have a line fault or no internet connection. Contact your provider

If the red light is your broadband / internet light - it means you are not logged on properly. Chck your username and password are correct - especially after the reset!

How do i connect to internet


You have a wired ethernet card (not wireless). You need to plug the ethernet cable into the card. An ethernet cable, also known as an RJ45 cable because its ends are RJ45, looks like a fat phone plug. Phone cords have 6 copper conductors while an RJ45 has 8. You plug one end into your ISP's hardware, which is probably a cable modem or a DSL modem. Plug the other end into the back of your computer. When you plug in the second end, both computer and modem should get a green light to show the cable is connected. If you don't get green lights, try another cable. These cables sell online for $2 to $10 based on length and run from 1 foot to 300 feet. Make sure your control_panel => network => adapter settings are set to "obtain IP address".

I hope that gets you further. Its a very vague and early stage you are at.

Emachines Will not detect ethernet cable


With the machine on and the cable connected on both ends (1 to computer and the other end to the Router or Modem that needs to be powered up) look where the cable plugs into your computer. Is there a green or orange light on. There may be two. Normally one that stays on steady is the CONNECT. This one is normally green color LED. When Data is being transmitted a second LED will be flickering showing data transfer. If you have no LED lights showing directly by the Ethernet cable, try another cable. Reminder: also make sure you have power on the router/ cable/dsl modem.
Hope this helps..

I am trying to set up a switch between my PS3 and my PC. I have an external DSL modem. I purchased a 5 port switch(Rosewill RC405-x) but no luck. Can I use an ethernet splitter instead?


You did not explainhaow you connected all your equipment together.
Connect your PC and PS3 into the 5 port switch.
Connect your DSL modem into the 5 port switch, if there is a WAN/internet port on the 5 port switch then connect the DSL model into this port.
You may need to power off the 5 port switch wait a 1 min and power up the 5 port switch again so it can setup an IP address table for the connected ports.
If this still does not work the replace the 5 port switch with a normal 5 port hub.

The Ethernet port of my Asus M4a77td motherboard stopped working. I think it is a hardware problem because when I plug the router cable on the port, the corresponding light on the router does not turn on...


Yeah, the link light on the router should be coming on.
A few simple things to try:
Try a different network cable. Try a different port on the router. Visually inspect the port on the system and router to confirm they are not physically damaged in any way.

Can.t connect to the internet using a wired connection..


If you're just pulling the ethernet cable off of the back of your computer, it won't work. You'll need a router connected to your network first, and then connect the 360 to the router with a second ethernet cable after setting up the router.

step by step.

1. connect the ethernet from the modem to the router.

2. connect the small ethernet that came with the router to the PC.

3. insert the cd that came with the router and follow the setup.

4. plug the 360 into the router with an ethernet cable into an empty port.

5. enjoy.

If you have a router already, you may just want to check the ethernet cable for any breaks. easy way of telling if it's the cable is to simply use a different cable, or use the cable for a different device, like your computer. change the cable out with a good one and see if you can still get online. If so, then your cable's not the issue.

If you have a router, good cables, and it's still not working, you may need to have the 360 looked at by a licensed repair service, because the ethernet jack on your 360 may have went out. This is rare, but it's possible.

My dell computer suddenly is not connecting to the internet and is showing "network cable unplugged" error


  1. start the troubleshooting process by making sure that everything (routers,switches, hubs, modems, and computers) is firmlyplugged in.
  2. If your computer is on and the other end of the Ethernet cable isconnected to a network device, the link or activity LED should light.If the light remains dark after you plug in the cable, replace thecable. If replacing the cable gives the same result (no green light), then go to the next step.
  3. Once you’ve eliminated cabling as a source of the problem, it’s time tolook to your computer. Start by making sure that your computer is able toaccess your Ethernet card. A good tool for doing this, and subsequentnetwork troubleshooting, is the command prompt.
  4. Select Start, All Programs, Accessories, and then Command Prompt. When the Command Prompt window opens, type ipconfig –alland press ENTER. Various lines of information will display, dependingon how your system is configured. Look for a section labeled EthernetAdapter Local Area Connection. This section should include a linelabeled Description, which should be a description of your Ethernetcard. If you see it, then your computer knows about your Ethernet cardand has successfully loaded the necessary drivers. If the Descriptionline is blank or missing, you will need to reinstall the drivers foryour Ethernet card.
  5. Your Ethernet card doesn’t detect a connection to the Ethernet cable. Open a command prompt, type ipconfig –all,and press ENTER. If the section that starts with Ethernet adapter LocalArea Connection contains a line labeled Media, with a status of MediaDisconnected, then your computer is unable to detect that a link hasbeen made from your Ethernet card through the Ethernet cable to anothernetwork device, such as your computer or router. Recheck the cabling.Use a known good cable to connect your computer to a known good networkdevice and then perform the check again. If the status is still MediaDisconnected, and you are sure that the cable and the network devicethe cable connects to are good, then you may have a bad Ethernet card.Reinstall the Ethernet card. If the problem continues, you may need toreplace the card.
  6. Other things to check:
  7. Bad connection, bad cable, or wrong cable. The ports on arouter, hub, switch, wireless access point, and print server can, likeany other device, go bad. However, the most common problem is not a badport but a bad or loose connection, a bad Ethernet cable, or the wrongtype of cable. Refer to the Cabling section above, to eliminate thesepossibilities.
  8. Wrong port. One possible cause of Ethernet port problems isusing the wrong port on a network device. For example, routers have WAN(wide-area network) and LAN ports. These ports accept the same Ethernetcabling but are not interchangeable. The same is true of hubs andswitches that have uplink ports, which are specially wired LAN portsthat allow easy cascading of multiple hubs and switches. In some cases,the uplink port is also a normal LAN port controlled by a switch on thedevice. If you’re using the uplink port as a normal LAN port, make surethe device is configured properly for this type of use.

    If aport doesn’t appear to be working, you can use the link light toconfirm it. Port link lights should always be lit when a good cable isconnected between the port and another working network device. If youuse known good cable and a known good network device to test the portbut the link light isn’t lit, you may have a bad port. You can eitherreplace the network device, or in the case of a hub/switch, add a hubor switch to gain more LAN ports.
  9. You cannot connect to other computers or router/Internet. Whenother computers in your LAN can connect to each other, as well as tothe Internet or other services, and your computer cannot, this may bean indication that your computer did not receive an IP (InternetProtocol) assignment when you booted.
  10. Open a command prompt, type ipconfig –all, and press ENTER. Inthe section labeled Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection, look forthe line labeled IP. If it starts with 169, you have a self-assignedIP, which indicates that your computer was not able to acquire an IPassignment from the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server.

    Test your access to the DHCP server by using the ping command. Open a command prompt and type pingfollowed by the IP address of the DHCP server. Your DHCP server isprobably the same as your router. For example, if your router’s IP is192.168.1.1, then type ping 192.168.1.1 and press ENTER. Youshould see four lines of text, starting with Reply From 192.168.1.1:Bytes 32, followed by time values that indicate how much time elapsedbetween the ping command and the router’s response. If you see fourlines that say Request Timed Out, then your computer cannot reach yourrouter/DHCP server.

    Make sure the router is plugged in,turned on, and properly configured to provide DHCP services.
These are just a few things to try to help figure out if it is your cable, ethernet card, router, or some other problem.
