Question about Computers & Internet
I have a desktop PC that my husband had built for me. I connect to the internet through a router, there is one more computer & an Xbox that goes through the router. Everything was working fine, & then I couldn't connect to the internet. The systray says 'Local Area Connection 4 A network cable is unplugged'. I have tried turning the router & modem off & on, changing the ethernet cable (used the one that connects the other pc, so I know it works), connecting directly to the cable modem & bypassing the router, and (through Device Manager, which said the device was working properly) uninstalling the network adapter then restarting the computer. Nothing helped. Do I need a new network card? Could it be something else? Any advice you have would be very much appreciated! Thank You!
Most likey the issue is with the network adapter. As it does not work even with the modem and router the card seems to be faulty.
Hope this helps.

Tips for a great answer:

The radios used for WiFi communication are very similar to the radios used for walkie-talkies, cell phones and other devices.
you need to connect your desktop to the router via RG45 ethernet cable.
