Hiro h50015 nic on windows 7 says network cable unplugged when cable is clearly plugged in

To connect to the internet, you must have a device like a modem or a router. Is your PC connected to this device? Do you have other PCs or networked devices on your LAN? Can you reach them with ping?

To make it easier to help, you should give information how your network looks! e.g.
internet ---- cisco800 router --- d-Link switch ---- myPC
or something like that. Otherwise it is fooling around in the dark.

Hi more likely it seems to be an issue with the Ethernet card on the concerned computer. If you have a cross over cable then please connect that computer to another laptop and check if it still shows the error msg or shows connected. Let me know if you need any other help.

Kyocera 3035 will not print - NIC card red LED flashing

First turn the main Power Switch off, then unplug the network cable from the nic card and leave it unplugged. Then turn the machine back on, when it says ready to copy, press the printer button and print out a network status page. Then hook the network cable back up and go to a pc and click on start then control panel and look for printers and faxes and click on it, then right click on the Kyocera Printer Icon, then click on properties in the drop down then click on the port tab, then click on configure port and check the ip address and make sure it matches the one on the network status page, if it doesn't put in the correct IP Address and apply the change. But if the ip address is right just try printing again. If it prints ok then you are done but if it doesn't try this click on start then run and then type in cmd, then on the screen that opens up type in ping, then a space, then ip address of the Kyocera Machine then press enter, if the Nic card is connecting to the network you should get a reply from the Kyocera's Nic Card if you do then the Nic Card is ok and the Kyocera print driver may have to be deleted and then re-installed. Hope this helps.

Dell E6400 onboard NIC cannot get network connection - "A Cable Is Unplugged". The laptop is undocked with CAT5 cable firmly attached.

I'd suggest updating the NIC driver in Device Manager. But, the message "A Cable is Unplugged" tells me that the NIC port, the CAT5, or the port where is is connected to your modem/router may be faulty. Try moving the cable to a different port on your modem/router, first. Then, try another CAT5. If still a problem, the NIC port is probably faulty. Hope this helps.

Pc's say a network cable is unplugged

First, NO, crossover cables are for connecting LIKE devices.. you need a Straight Thru cable for connecting 2 PCs to a switch.. So, if you are using Crossovers, then you are getting the correct results (cable unplugged). Replace with the proper cables, and it should see the network fine..
