Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook

2 Answers

IP connects... No internet.. Media Disconnected

Just got a free laptop of a buddy of mine. He stepped on it.

So I am not using a monitor hooked up to it to see anything.

I did a full reformat to clean it from the prior users stuff and/or potential viruses.

Loaded the drivers to the best of my ability from the HP website.

The laptop is a compaq presario m2000. ... says so above the screen... If I do a model # check it comes up as Compaq Presario M2242AP Notebook PC

so. after all that fun reinstalling. no net.

I am pretty savvy in the ways of the computer, but this seems to be stumping me.

My other comp works fine. So the connection have no problem.

the ethernet line comes right in from outside. no router. that' just the way it's done here in south korea (I am over here teaching english)

I tried uninstalling the drivers, and the adapters. nothing.

I have an IP...and subnet mask, alocated by the DHCP all the exact same as my other comp (when it's jacked in... not using a router, so same ip).

ipconfig /all lists the realtek adapter (lan) as "media disconnected"

this computer also has wireless, and dialup.

I am trying to get the ethernet connection to work.

    tried that... nope

  • hlywkar Sep 07, 2009

    only the one cable comes inside from outside... and I am using that one - sharing it with my other comp.

    for the wireless - I can receive signals of networks... but they are locked. Have not tried walking around town to see if I can get it.

    when I plug it it, the little Icon on the system tray flashes and show it connecting.
    The green and yellow lights flash also. stopping to just green light after a few moments.

    pins are not damaged. port is not loose.

    I know it is connecting... I see the lights... and the ip changes to what it should change to... but still no internet.

  • hlywkar Sep 07, 2009

    the local area connection comes up:

    LAN or High-speed Internet

    Connected, Firewalled

    Realtek RTL8139/810x
    Family Fast Ethernet NIC

    IP Address: xxx.xx.xxx.xxx (x's there for my protection. It's the smae IP I get when I plug in my pc)

    Subnet Mask: (again same as my pc)

    Assigned by DHCP

  • hlywkar Sep 07, 2009

    ok... progress...
    If I type in the IP address of Google, I get connected.

    but still with just the web address. nothing

  • hlywkar Sep 08, 2009

    found out the issue.

    on initial load of browers I just get the error message.
    type in google.ca... and it takes me to my isp providers page... in korean.

    had to sign in with name and password. I didn't know that because I can't read korean... so Igot my wife to do that.

    I guess each time a new computer logs onto this connection they provider has it rigged up to ask for a password each time.

    thanks for all the help

1. You never stated if you tried a different Ethernet cable, i will assume its the same cable as the computer that Does acquire an IP via DHCP and work on the net.

"this computer also has wireless" have you tested to see if you can acquire a IP via DHCP over the wireless?

If the device is showing up in Device Manager and etc. as you said it was, you need to visually inspect the RJ45 port on the laptop.

Do you see blinking lights at the RJ45 port?
http://www.philau.edu/OIT/computingsupport/documentation/tutorial_pages/img/connectivity_check4.jpg

Top left and Top right of where the port is plugged in, do you see two blank lights? Compare to picture above for reference. Not all laptops have lights on ethernet port.

Unplug the cable.
Using a flashlight or etc: Do any of the 8 pins look damaged?
Take a small flathead, try to push the port itself around. Maybe you will find that it is loose from the motherboard?

Lastly, if the wireless does work, and you tried all of the above without any success, and you REALLY want ethernet on the laptop, there is a $5 you can do. Buy a PCMCIA Expansion Card with a RJ45 port. 80% of it slides into the laptop, and boom, your done.

    Oh, and I don't think you could have installed the wrong driver, just FYI.

    Because if you went to HP.COM and then clicked Support & Drivers, and specified your model AND the correct version of windows, its kinda hard to mess up the driver install from there.

My adapter shows "media disconnected" as well. That's not an issue.

Try running ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew.

How to Share your Internet Connection through laptop's WLAN(Wifi) card?


Every Windows Operating System after Windows 98 can share its Internet Connection using this Technique. Microsoft defines this technique as Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). But setting ICS is very obscure to most of the users. This comes very useful if you live with your roommates and you guys have single internet source like a USB modem Connected to one laptop only. Using Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) that laptop can Broadcast its Internet to other laptops in the room. Technically, the range of a laptop's WLAN adapter is around 20-25 meters. So it can easily handle near by rooms also. This can also be done with a PC having a WLAN card.
To setup and broadcast your internet it is mandatory that you are accessing internet using anything other than Your WLAN card like a USB modem, Ethernet etc. This is because your Wireless adapter(WLAN) will be used for Broadcasting your Internet connection to your friends.
Server laptop:- Laptop with Internet Connection.Client Laptop:- Laptops accessing the internet of server laptop.
Follow the steps to share your internet connection..here it goes:--0b73509.gif
  1. Open the "Control Panel" of the laptop that is accessing Internet and go to "Network and Internet" then "Network and Sharing Center".
  2. On the right side of the "Network and Sharing Center" click the "Change Adapter Settings" and you will see all the available network adapters in your laptop.
  3. Now Right-Click the adapter through which you access internet and click "Properties" option. The properties window will open.
  4. In "properies" Window click the "sharing" tab check "Allow other network user to connect through this computer's Internet connection"97ac799.jpg
  5. In the sharing tab, Select "Home networking connection" type as "Wireless Network Connection" click "OK" and select "Yes" to the Confirmation warning. see above image.
  6. Now Right-Click the "Wireless Network Connection" in "Change Adapter Settings"and Open Its Properties.
  7. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and select the "Use following IP address"
  8. Enter the IP address as "192.168.000.001" and "Subnet mask" as "255.255.255.0"
  9. Leave all other fields blank in Server laptop, which has access to internet.0219162.jpg
  10. Now setup a wireless "ad hoc" computer to computer connection using "setup a new connection or network" in "network and sharing center" and Name it as anything like "Internet_sharing".c2debe7.jpg3a69972.jpg
  11. Now bring other laptops that will use the Shared Internet connection.
  12. Open "Change adapter Setting" (Described in step 2).
  13. In "Change adapter settings" Right-click "wireless Network Adapter" and Click its properties.
  14. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and enter following IP address:-
  15. IP address-"192.168.000.002", Subnet mask "255.255.255.0", Default gateway-"192.168.0.001" and Preferred DNS server: "192.168.000.001".
  16. Use the same step from 11 to 15 to connect other laptops and Increase the IP address by +1. Ex- 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4 & so on. Rest of the settings like Default gateway etc will be same on all laptops. Only the server laptop will have blank entries in these settings.
  17. Now connect all the laptop with the Wireless network(ad-hoc) named "Internet-sharing" that you had previously broadcasted in step 10 in server laptop.
  18. Now in the server laptop, disconnect and then reconnect the internet connection(This is a necessary step for Internet Connection sharing(ICS) to work).
  19. Now access internet in all laptops...ENjoy.
Note:- For Advance Users.. this information is necessary only--The IP address of server laptop work as the "Default gateway" and Preferred DNS server of Client laptop and on server laptop these fields are blank. Use same series of IP address as used in the server.

My linksys w/2phone ports cannot hook up with the ethernet


Most Cable Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Media Access Control (MAC) Address authentication to establish Internet connection for end-users. MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to the network adapter/s of the computer.
To set up your Linksys router to work with a Cable ISP, you have to enable the MAC Clone feature of the router. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the computer registered with the ISP.
To set up a Linksys router with Cable connection, you need to perform four steps using the computer that's been registered with the ISP:
i. Verifying Internet Connection
ii. Connecting the Devices Together
iii. Checking the Router's LEDs
iv. Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection

Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the computer to the Broadband modem using an Ethernet cable without the router installed. If you cannot get online, contact your ISP. If it's online, use the computer to set up the router.
NOTE: Some cable modems use the USB port. If the physical connection is via USB port, you may not be able to go online via Ethernet connection. Contact your ISP to have the Ethernet port of the modem configured.

kb17251-001_en.png NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
Connecting the Devices Together
After confirming the Internet connection through the modem, connect the modem to the Internet port of the router; connect the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports at the back of the router. For instructions, click here.
Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection

Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.

NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.

Step 2:
On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.

kb17251-002_en.png

Step 3:
Select Enabled then click Clone My PC's MAC.

kb17251-003_en.png

Step 4:
Click Save Settings.

Step 5:
Click the Status tab.

kb17251-004_en.png

Step 6:
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.

kb17251-005_en.png

NOTE: If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.

Aspire 5100 PC Notebook: How do i get my new Acer Laptop to connect to the ...


hi guest, welcome to the forum! Let me think why your laptop cannot access to internet during it's already connected to your router.

1) Because the connection is established --> Wireless is working properly
2) If you cannot access to Internet --> Access Restrictions is configured in Router.

How to configure?
1) Login to Router Administrator, you need to open a command line and use usage as ipconfig and you will see as the following

C:Documents and Settingssin.le>ipconfig

Windows IP Configuration


Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :

Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

Please open Internet Explorer with the address
http://Default Gateway ~ http://192.168.1.1

You need to know What is User name & Password to login, please configure "Access Restrictions" to allow access

I hope this is your case.

Ip address failed


  • In order to connect your console to the internet you will need the following:
  • Laptop with WiFi
  • Ethernet cables
  • USB cable
  • Video capture card
Below are the steps involved includind some additional information:
    File Sharing
  1. Step 1 Go to Settings in the PS3 menu and scroll down to Network Settings. Go to Internet Connectionmag-glass_10x10.gif Settings and select your wireless router from the list of available connections. If the router has security, you must input your password. Internet Connection in the Network Settings list will say "Enabled" once you are connected.
  2. Step 2 Link the laptop and PS3 together through a router if you have one. Connect both the console and computer to the router with Ethernet cables. This is needed for a PS3 with 40 gigabytes of memory and that does not have WiFi.
  3. Step 3 Connect the devices directly with a USB cable. Use one of the USB-style ports the PS3 uses for its game controllers. This requires a USB cable with two thin connector plugs.
    Connecting to a Monitor
  4. Step 1 Purchase an external video capture card for your laptop. This device will connect to the computer through the USB port and will have both composite and S-video connections.
  5. Step 2 Connect the capture card to your laptop. Insert its included CD-ROM into your disc drive and install the software on it that allows the computer to recognize the card's drivers and includes a video viewing/editing application.
  6. Step 3 Attach the PS3 to the capture card using the console's RCA composite cable. Open the video application and turn the console on to view it in the program's screen.
  7. Step 4 Locate and click the application's "full screen" button to enlarge the game screen to your full monitor. THANKS. MIKE

Cannot connect to DLink DIR-655


The part below is all you need to look at, the rest is Ethernet which is your wired connection, ethernet card.

Here is what are causing your problems from what you gave me and basically your computer is not communicating with the router:

1)I don't see any IP address for your laptop so you can't get on the internet if you don't have an IP address, also, I don't see any gateway address. The gateway address is your router address, and that address is given to the router automatically from your Internet Service Provider.

So if your computer cannot see the gateway address then the gateway address (router) cannot give you an IP address to get on the Internet.
Your Wireless card looks ok, that is the physical address and if you were able to do the loopback then its working.

So on your laptop I would begin from the beginning. Go into network connections and delete the DLink connection if it is there. Then Start>control panel>Network connections>click wireless network connection>click change settings of the connection on the left window>click wireless network tab>make sure checkmark"use windows to configure my wireless network settings>click add a new network>TYPE IN THE SSID FOR THE NETWORK>ENTER WEP/WPA KEY>CLICK OK, then close and you should be connected.

You said other computers are able to access the internet thru the DLINK so it all points to your laptop not being configured correctly.

HOWEVER :)...I see alot of "Media disconnected in your list. Make sure all of the lights are working on the front of the router, if not check the cabling or call the ISP sometimes the problem is on their end. Hope this helps, keep me updated.

Hi,

Try the DSL modem directly connected to the PC.No D-Link Router(powered off and disconnected). Verify that the PCcould surf/browse/connect to the Internet. Go to Start, Control Panel,Network Connections, right click Local Area Connection, Properties,scroll down to/highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), Properties button.Get the IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS assigned to the PC(write this down. This will be your WAN/Internet IP settings). Then Disable DHCP of your modem if it has one. OK, close, save or whatever is applicable.

Disconnect the DSL modem from the PC. Connect D-Link Router to PC (wired/LAN) without the modem connected to the router.Go again to Start, Control Panel, Network Connections, right clickLocal Area Connection, Properties, scroll down to/highlight InternetProtocol(TCP/IP), Properties button. Tick "Use the following IPaddress". Enter this IP Add 192.168.0.10, Subnet Mask255.255.255.0,Default Gateway 192.168.0.1 and the DNS from what youhave written down earlier). This will be your LAN IP settings. OK,close, save or whatever is applicable.

Open a browser and log into the D-Link router (192.168.0.1, using "admin" as a username and no password). Do not run Wireless Network Setup Wizard. In WAN/Internet/Modem setting of router enable/check Static IP Add.Usethe IP numbers previously assigned to PC that you have written down asthe router's WAN/Internet/Modem IP settings. OK, close, save orwhatever is applicable. Reboot router. Connect DSL modem to router.
