Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
Have a DELL Dimension 4550 (NOTE! Not a 4600!!) with TP-link TG-3269 series gigabit ethernet NIC. The computer is connected to an Apple Time Capsule via ethernet cable but I can't get internet to work. * In Network Connections / Local Area Connection / General Tab the TP-name shows. The device status is "working properly" so I have run the Troubleshoot button as well, but not found anything. * According to the icon at the right bottom, Local Area Connection, a network cable is unplugged ' I have tested the ethernet cable, it works with our Vista computer which is running ethernet on the same Time Capsule. * I have restarted the network several times Trying to find what the problem might be from internet, I receive the following info when I * ping 126.96.36.199: 4*Destination host unreachable * ping 127.0.0.1: Pinging 127.0.0.1 with 32 bytes of data: 4* Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128 etc * run ipconfig/all: Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection: Media State.... Media Disconnected. Do I need new drivers or how can I check the hw? Please help since I am only a beginner! BR, A hopeful beginner
pinging 127.0.0.1 just tells you that your network card is operational and reacheable by your system.
I have a couple of suggestions - check them out and let me know what you found out.
Let me know how that works for you and if you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to look further into that if this did not work for you.
