Dynex 7' network cable stuck in dell laptop port

I plugged my new dynex Cat6 7' network cable into my dell vista laptop and it got stuck in the port. I'm 99% sure it's the right port, but now that I want to take it out it won't come out. I pushed down on the top and pulled but it's stuck. Any advice?

One of two things has happened. Hopefully this has happened: The thumb tab is not pulling the lock down far enough to release the plug. Take a very tiny straight slot screw driver (jewellers) or a very long pointed pocket knife, run it down the thumb tab on the outside until you have passed the locking lip. Then move it to one side. This will cause the lock to be pressed close enough to the plug that it will clear the locking lip and release the plug. Think of it as a shoe horn.

If this procedure is unsuccessful, it maybe the other problem. The plug slides in on 8 loose wires. They are only attached at the leading edge and as the plug is inserted it presses down these wires. The wires are loose at the other end and rarely develope an upward curl. This curl hooks on the plug and as you attempt to pull out it gets tighter and tighter. You should get a very thin but tough piece of packaging plastic and cut it just less than the width of the plug. Push it up between the contact side of the plug and the wires of the receptical, far enough to pass the end of the plug. Then pull the plug free. Always remember to press the thumb release as hard as possible to release the thumb lock.

How do i install?


This device is a plug and play device and doesnt need any configuration before installation.

You need CAT6 ethernet ( copper LAN cables) to connect the switch to the other device from where you want to extend/expand your ethernet.

Rewiring a house putting in a net work for the future . what cable cat5e ,cat5e screened , cat6 , cat6 screened . would cat5e screened be better than cat6 unscreened ? cables away from mains ,


I'm guessing when you say screened and unscreened you mean shielded or unshielded. Shielded wire is used when there is a higher possibility of electrical or RF interference. In a typical household those type of interferences are uncommon. As far as the Cat.5e or Cat. 6 decision, Cat 5e is tested to 150 Mhz. compared to a 250 Mhz. rating on Cat. 6 therefore with future speeds in mind I'd go with the Category 6.

Need help with best connection type for college student in dorm


The enhaced version just give more range of signal over the normal dynex, regarding the internet provider it depends because sometimes you'll need a password and user to connect to the wireless signal. The dynex is used to connect from a cable signal (RJ-45)internet and then it will transfer the connection to wireless so it can be use from any laptop with wireless connection. So for example you DSL internet connection is a cable (RJ-45) then you connect that cable to the dynex router, then the router will automatically transmit the signal to wireless so any nearby pc can connect to it. If the laptop doesn't have wireless, then you'll have to buy a card to be able to connect to wireless signal or you could by also a (RJ-45 straight-through cable Cat 5e) to connect from one of the ports from the DYNEX to the laptop. Hope it helps.

Cannot connect to internet after storm.


More likely it's the ethernet card or your ISP, (Internet service provider). Do this. Open control panel, open system. Click the hardware tab. Than click device manager button. Scroll down to network connections. Click the + sign which will open the network. Do you see a yellow ! point?
If you do than you need to re-install the network driver software. Click the link below, it will take you to Dell's web site. Listed there will be all the drivers for your XPS 200.
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=XPS/DIMENSION%20200/5150C&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Click the + sign next to Network. Download & install the
Intel - Driver. Also download & install the Intel - HTML file.
There is also a Intel - Diagnostics Utility that will check your network card. This file may already be installed on your PC.
How ever do not run the utility un-till you install the other two files. Once you know your network card is working than it's down to your ISP. That requires a phone call. If your network card fails
you can add a new PCI network card. I'll post a link to some below. If you feel you need a new cable buy what's called a CAT6 Rj45 cable to go from your modem to the PC.
Click the link for PCI network cards:

Cable Rj45 CAT6
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/search.asp?cat=748&keywords=Rj45%20CAT6&mnf=

Both of these you can get at a local store. Opening the link gives you a picture to go by.
If you have more questions just post back here.

Good luck & kind regards.
