MY compaq laptop will connect to a wireless network but when I connect to the Uni netwrk via the cable my computer indicates there is MAC address and won't work. Any ideas please, I have tried other cables...

Calm down, try this step. do you want to connect your laptop to cable network? if yes, then click on LAN icon on your task bar or you click on "My Network Places" once it open, click on view my network connections, there you see Local Area Connection which is your LAN device. Right click and point to Properties. There you see Options like Client for Microsoft Network, File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks, Qos Packet Schedule, and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then on Properties. Now you see options like "Obtain an IP address automatically and Use the following IP address. Click the second option which is "Use the following IP address" input the ip address like follows. IP address:, Subnet Mask:, Default gateway is the ip address of your network, then input it there and the same thing with Preferred DNS server:also input the ip address of your network. Finally click on OK and wait a moment for the system to apply the settings. After that, you click on OK. Thanks and Goodluck..........

Multiple network adapters found

Go to Start->Control Panel->Network and Internet->Network and Sharing center->Manage network connections
You will find icons like local area connection, wireless connection and lot more. Just have one local area connection enabled and disable all other icons. Then run the setup

Wireless connection problems, not receiving packets.

Goto Network Connections >> Right Click on the wireless icon >> Properties >> Select IPv4(or IP for XP) >> Click on Properties >> Now see from your friend's system(in the same way) if here the details entered MATCH. The DNS entry shud match here.

Dell Ethernet Network Adapter not being recognised

i) Click on Start button ---->Select option Control Panel------>Select Network Connections----->
  a new window appears showing the "internet connections icon " Such as:

  Local Area Connection 1 or 2 or 3 and since you are not connected it will show this icon as:

eg1:  Local Area Connection 1 or 2 or 3
        Network Cable Unplugged, Firewalled

        in this case u can download VIA network drivers....from internet..


       eg2: Local Area Connection 1 or 2 or 3
       Network Cable Unplugged, Firewalled
       Realtek RTL8139 Family Fast Ethernet NIC

       in this u can download "Realtek RTL8139" network drivers.... from internet(which is showing              model no: RTL8139 through google search engine )


ii)        Click Start button ---->Select RUN option ----> type in the text box devmgmt.msc --->Select                Network Adapters....

           but this will show wheter ur network adapter or NIC is VIA or Realtek or......but does show the             correct Model NO: of VIA or Realtek....
            so i would suggest to follow the step (i)

Thanking you
