Question about 10 10 Computer Network adapter Cable (MJ25M-8F)

1 Answer

Network Adapter I am able to connect to a wireless network but am not able to connect to the internet. When the computer tries to self diagnose, it says there may be a problem with one or more of the computer's network adapters. Could someone tell me how to fix this? This computer is less than 6 months old so surely it is not a hardware problem, right?

Re: Network Adapter


Based on your post/description:.
1. “I am able to connect to a wireless network but am not able to connect to the internet.”
Indicates that your wireless network adapter is working since "able to connect to a wireless network". The "not able to connect to the internet" may be settings/configurations.
2. “When the computer tries to self diagnose, it says there may be a problem with one or more of the computer's network adapters
Which can only be your wired network adapter (Ethernet) but since you are not using that but your WiFi, should not make any difference.

To simplify, let’s focus on the Internet connection. Pls verify/determine that:
a. the wireless network is connected to a modem and can access the Internet;
b. the brand/model/version of the wireless Access Point/Router and its IP address;
c. the wireless security method being used by the network (WEP, WPA, MAC filter); and
d. the IP settings given by the DHCP server (which is also the router) to your PC which includes IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway & DNS Servers.

Pls post back results of a, b, c, & d that we can figure out the solution for your concern.

In the meantime, you can try right clicking on your networking icon (bottom right side) and click on repair.

Good luck and kind regards.

No eithernet to apple computer

Are there LED lights on the connection on the router? Do they blink? If not, the cable if broken/your network connection on the MAC is broken down. If they blink, the problem could be either your MAC is not setup for DHCP connection, or your router doesn't (want to) give IP address to your MAC. Check this by opening the Network settings on your MAC. Check if DHCP is enabled, and if your PC gets an IP from the router that looks like the IP you get from it when connection through WIFI.

Connecting Two Computers Directly With Cable for a home network

The simplest and easy way to start a home network 

The simplest kind and easy to maintain of home network contains exactly two computers. You can use this kind of network to share files, a printer or another peripheral device, and even an Internet connection. To connect two computers for sharing these and other network resources, consider the options described below.
Connecting Two Computers Directly With Cable

The traditional method to network two computers involves making a dedicated link by plugging one cable into the two systems. Several alternatives exist for networking two computers in this manner: Ethernet crossover cable
Null modem serial cable or parallel peripheral cable
Special-purpose USB cables
Ethernet crossover cable
Null modem serial cable or parallel peripheral cable
Special-purpose USB cables
Ethernet - Of the above choices, the Ethernet method is preferred as it supports a reliable, high-speed connection with minimal configuration required. Additionally, Ethernet technology offers the most general-purpose solution, allowing networks with more than two computers to be built fairly easily later. If one of your computers possesses an Ethernet adapter but the other has USB, an Ethernet crossover cable can still be used by first plugging a USB-to-Ethernet converter unit into the computer's USB port.

Ethernet crossover cables

Serial and parallel - This type of cabling, called Direct Cable Connection (DCC) when using Microsoft Windows, offers lower performance but offers the same basic functionality as Ethernet cables. You may prefer this option if you have such cables readily available and network speed is not a concern. Serial and parallel cables are never used to network more than two computers.

USB - Ordinary USB cables must not be used to connect two computers directly to each other. Attempting to do so can electrically damage the computers! However, special USB cables designed for direct connection exist that can be used safely. You may prefer this option over others if your computers lack functional Ethernet network adapters.

To make dedicated connections with Ethernet, USB, serial or parallel cables requires
each computer have a functioning network interface with an external jack for the cable, and
the network settings on each computer appropriately configured
One phone line or power cord cannot be used to directly connect two computers to each other for networking.

Connecting Two Computers with Cable through Central Infrastructure
Rather than cable two computers directly, the computers may instead be joined indirectly through a central network fixture. This method requires two network cables, one connecting each computer to the fixture. Several types of fixtures exist for home networking: Ethernet hubs, switches, and routers 
USB hubs
Phoneline and powerline wall outlets
Ethernet hubs, switches, and routers
USB hubs
Phoneline and powerline wall outlets

Implementing this method often entails additional up-front cost to purchase more cables and network infrastructure. However, it's a general-purpose solution accommodating any reasonable number of devices (e.g, ten or more). You will likely prefer this approach if you intend to expand your network in the future.

Most cabled networks utilize Ethernet technology. Alternatively, USB hubs can be employed, while powerline and phoneline home networks each offer their own unique form of central infrastructure. The traditional Ethernet solutions are generally very reliable and offer high performance.
Connecting Two Computers Wirelessly
In recent years, wireless solutions have enjoyed increasing popularity for home networking. As with cabled solutions, several different wireless technologies exist to support basic two computer networks: Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi connections can reach a greater distance than the wireless alternatives listed above. Many newer computers, especially laptops, now contain built-in Wi-Fi capability, making it the preferred choice in most situations. Wi-Fi can be used either with or without a network fixture. With two computers, Wi-Fi networking minus a fixture (also called ad-hoc mode) is especially simple to set up. How To - Set Up an Ad Hoc WiFi Network

How To - Set Up an Ad Hoc WiFi Network

Bluetooth technology supports reasonably high-speed wireless connections between two computers without the need for a network fixture. Bluetooth is more commonly used when networking a computer with a consumer handheld device like a cell phone. Most desktop and older computers do not possess Bluetooth capability. Bluetooth works best if both devices are in the same room in close proximity to each other. Consider Bluetooth if you have interest in networking with hand held devices and your computers lack Wi-Fi capability. 

Infrared networking existed on laptops years before either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technologies became popular. Infrared connections only work between two computers, do not require a fixture, and are reasonably fast. Being very simple to set up and use, consider infrared if your computers support it and you lack the desire to invest effort in Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

If you find mention of an alternative wireless technology called Home RF, you can safely ignore it. Home RF technology became obsolete several years ago and is not a practical option for home networking.

Try it is the best home network option.

Why i cant use enternet

Are you getting limited connectivity or is the status "A network cable is unplugged"?

When you have limited connectivity, you are connecting to your router but not getting an IP address for the Internet, so the problem could be with your router.

Try to disable/enable the network adapter.
Reset the router.

If there is no connection at all, you may have a defective cable, try replacing the cable.

I have a wpn824 netgear router and a hughsnet hn9000 modem. I had to reimage my pc and now my desktop doesn't connect to the internet but all laptops work ok on their wireless internet. My question is what...

Sounds like you need the network driver. What model desktop is this. I would go to the manufacture website and download the network driver on a laptop save the file then take it to your desktop that should correct your issue. If you right click on my computer and properties. click the hardware tab then the device manager button. My guess is you will see a yellow question mark this indicates you do not have a driver for that item so it will not work. You might have a bunch all these can be fixed from the manufacture website.

My wireless USB adapter is not getting connected to the network, what do I do

prior computers have builtin network adapters that functioned as cable connection either dial up phone lin or ethernet cable connections. Computer of the recent generation have wireless adaptors that derive connective within radius of modems also known as wifi. Observe the computers made models as reference to ascertain whether requires cable connection to network or capable of wireless reception. Computers that are provided network structures by an expert would recognise either as requiring cable or wireless. Depending on the coniditon of computer structures requesting to establish a network structure is acheivable. Refer with a computer networkin technician that would evaluate the devices at the location to ascertain the requisite structures to establish networking telecommunications. For example, refering with an expert ascertains that the computer requires modems to capture the signals or modern devices require a miniature adaptor device attacked to the computer.

Hi raji767. You left out a few important details such as which operating system you are using and if the WiFi signal you are trying to connect to is encrypted. I will try to give the best step by step instructions I can based on the info you gave. I am assuming you are using either Windows XP or Vista. First, make sure the wireless is turned on. There is a button on the side by the headphone jack which turns the wireless on and off.
WINDOWS XP: Click Start, Control Panel. On the left side of the control panel window you should see "switch to classic view" or "switch to category view". To make it easy, make sure you are in classic view. Next double click the icon labeled "Network Connections". Next, right click on the "Wireless Network Connection" and select "View Available Wireless Networks". In this window you should see the network you are trying to connect to. Next just select the network and click connect. NOTE: If the network is encrypted, you will need to enter the key after pressing connect.
VISTA: First, go to "Start Menu", "Control Panel", "Network and Internet". Next, go to "Network and Sharing Center" and select "Connect to a network". Choose "Show All" and hit the refresh button. Now just select the network you want to connect to and click connect.
NOTE: If the network is encrypted, you will need to enter the key after pressing connect.
Hope this helps. If you have any questions just let me know. Good Luck!

When you connect the laptop to the router are you using a network cable?
When you connect two computers such as your laptop and the xbox using a network cable you need a crossover cable not a standard network cable.
If you use a network hub you can connect two or more computers together using the standard network cables.

Random wrong passwords

Any router that your connecting to wireless, without a password, does not have wireless security set up on the router.

Any other wireless router that you are trying to connect to that does not allow you to connect wireless, has wireless security set up and that same security must be set up on the wireless device (like laptop or desktop, whatever is not connected via ethernet cable.).

Reply back what you find and I will be glad to help more.

Cannot "ping" (default gateway)

1) yes, referring to the router's IP address.

2) I determined the IP addresses of all my computers and tried to "ping" them but could not "ping" any of them. I can "ping" the IP address of the computer I am working from but I don't think that helps in TS this situation.

3) I'm wondering if my router is fully set up correctly. Do each of the computers have to be "saved" in the router's settings?
