The xp ethernet connection says it is unplugged when it is pluged ed
Posted by Anonymous on
The XP is telling you it cannot see an internet connection.
Check the settings on the modem with your supplier and the XP set up.

In general the Wan port of the router gets connected to the ADSL modem where the computer used to connect and the computer connects to the switch portion of the router which often has 4 ports. The router has configuration options that must be set to comply with your internet service providers (ISPs) requirements. These can often be found on his support web site. If you can provide the link to the website I can assist with the search. Otherwise I will need the name of the ISP. If this ISP is cable related like Road Runner I will need the associated cable provider. I will also may need to know the country, city and state in which you are located as some ISPs have geographic differences in equipment. Depending on what that information determines I may also need to know the Manufacturer and Model of the DSL Modem -- probably the box your computer plugs into when it is working. It would also be helpful to know if you got the router used or new. Used routers may have been configured by their previous owner and require additional changes to new routers with factory default settings.
Lastly as a wild guess. There are some ISPs that extract address information (MAC Address) from the attached network card into the units they send you to attach to the phone line or cable. Should you happen to be with such a company they often state turn on the modem before the router so it recognizes the change. You may want to try turning off the modem attaching the router without power then turning on the modem wait a minute and power on the router -- if your ISP requires default settings for your router and it was new this may work. As far as the alarm for unplugged cables -- do the cables have the clip portion on the ends and are they securely established in the ports. Are the contact points on the cables free of dust and dirt? Especially if the router is used have you tried a different port for the computer side connection? In case of the computer end have you tried multiple computers -- possibly a friend's if you do not have more than one.
There is a strong likelyhood this simple solution will not work. All of the above information may lead to the determination that we must enter a static IP address into the router, maybe we need to provide for PPPoE login for the router, maybe we need to configure the switch to allow the router to perform the PPPoE login, and several other such items. This is probably not a one reply solution.

Since it says network cable unplugged on the computer when wired to the router, you need to check these first:
â Make sure that the Ethernet cable is connected from the modem to the router’s Internet (WAN) port and the computer to the numbered port of the router. The computer should used to be connecting to the Ethernet port of the modem, if not; you should contact your ISP first.
â Make sure that the Ethernet adapter/LAN card on your computer is working properly. You can check that on the device manager of your computer.
â If those are all working fine that would mean the router is not yet configured for Internet access or we can say that the settings for the provider are not synchronized with the router.
To configure the router, you can do these general steps:
1. Connect the computer to the numbered port of the router and the modem to the router’s Internet (WAN) port.
2. Turn off the computer, router and modem.
3. Turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to stabilize then turn on the router. As soon as the lights are stabilized, you can turn on the computer and check for internet connection.
However, if the Internet connection still does not work. That means there are additional settings needed to be done. You can message me about the name of your ISP and I will provide you the specific steps you need.

Probably you used the wrong type of ethernet cable, a crossover one. Try another Ethernet cable but this time a straight one.

Most of the time, routers and modem stops working when it sense a power outage. This is the defense mechanism of these devices to avoid from being damaged.
Turn off the computer, router and modem. Leave them off for 15 minutes. Then turn the modem back on first, wait for 30 seconds.
Then turn on the router, wait for another 30 seconds. After that turn the computer ON.
This would power cycle the router. If same problem occurs, contact the router manufacturer.
Have a great day!

It appears the connection between the Linksys and the modem is not working.
Try a different LAN cable.
Check the LAN cable from the modem to the Linksys, it should be connected to the WAN/Internet port on the Linksys.
