Onboard NIC Not connected

I have a presario 2100 (2135us) notebook that I've restored the operating system on and the devices have all shown on the machine via the device manager. My concern is that the device manager is showing the NIC card as installed and ready, but the moment I connect it to the LAN, it will read not connected. Is there a patch that need to install or what?

Why is my light showing a very dim blue, and I can connect to my mobile devices but not my desktop. This all happened after a lightning storm and power outage

Check bios to see if on-board wired/wireless NIC was disabled, if not, NIC may be bad. Try a usb wi-fi adapter to communicate with router.

Belkin F5D7230 4 not working with vista is there a driver i can get thats compatible ?

Routers normally do not require a driver in any operating system. The only driver that would be required would be for your NIC (network interface card) or your wireless NIC installed inside your computer.

I have a Gateway PC FX541X. It has 2 NIC connectors. Apparently these are incorporated into the motherboard. My PC will no longer connect to the internet. It has worked fine for a year (until the warranty...

It sounds like it could be a problem with a windows driver, though it sounds like it's getting an IP address.

First things first, flick it on and wait for it to start up, then once it's on do the following. Press the start button and, in the search bar, type cmd. Wait for it to bring to load a selection of icons above the search bar then find the CMD icon (this should be a small black box). Right click on this icon and select "run as administrator". Answer yes if it asks you if you're sure. This will open up a black window with a command prompt, try running the command "ping", if you get a reply back then there's nothing physically wrong with your PC, and it's a configuration problem elsewhere. Post back your results and I'll try to help you further :)

Please make sure that you have the NIC enabled and on the computer and set to automatic settings for IP address. Now follow the steps below to reset and reconfigure the router:


At the back of the router you will find a small tiny hole (which has a small button inside it). Press the button with the help of a paper clip. and hold it down for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, please release the button and power off the device for 5 seconds.


1. Connect a Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port of the router(isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that THERE IS NO DIRECT CONNECTION BETWEEN THE MODEM AND THE COMPUTERS (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.


1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router, usually with or
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the username and password is case sensitive).
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

Netgear WGT624 v2 - wireless connects ok, wired doesn't

Well, there are several options to look at.
First, make sure that your software settings are ok.
  • Check Control Panel -> Network Connections. Is your LAN connection enabled? Check your TCP/IP settings and set IP address and DNS to Obtain automatically.
  • Can you ping your router? Open a command prompt (Win-key+R, type cmd and in the next window ping
  • Do you have MAC address filtering enabled on your router? If so, disable it for now. Also check if your router reports your PC as connected. Go to the main menu of the browser interface, see under the Maintenance heading and select Attached Devices.
Then check the hardware:
  • Test your Ethernet cable connections and replace the cable with another one for testing. (If you don't have a spare one, switch it with the one from your modem to your router. If your laptop now looses it's internet connection, you know it's this cable.)
  • Are the green and yellow lights on your NIC (network card) blinking? Although very rare, but these things can die (had that before). If that's the case then you have to replace the card. If it the onboard-NIC (part of the motherboard), get a PCI card and put it in one of the empty slots.
That's all I can think of right now. Let me know about yor findings and then we take it from there. If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

My Lan connection will not work

It sounds like the LAN port is bad. If it is an onboard port, just add an ethernet NIC card into an available PCI slot and disable the onboard port. That will solve your problem.

Unable to get a IP address to my workstation at home,

just wanted to clarify

* have you tried connecting desktop and laptop straight to the router? (because with your statement you only connect both computers straight to the modem and only the laptop works fine).

Lynksys is causing high blood pressure

Hello cyndilynn

OK, my friend, don't fret. Let's find out what the skinny is. First things first...

(01) Do you have the manual for your router?
If not, you can download it from HERE.

(02) Do I understand you correctly that you are able to connect to the Internet from one of your computers and not the other WHILE using the Linksys BEFSR41 router?

Some points to clarify:
(A) Your Linksys router (connected between your cable or DSL modem and your computer(s)) and your Linksys NIC (installed in your computer) are two different animals that serve different purposes.

(B) Your router should be connected to each of your computers via "straight through" (not "cross-over") Ethernet patch cables that run from the LAN ports at the back of your router to a NIC connection on each of your computers.

(C) The NIC and the ROUTER do not have to be made by the same manufacturer (in this case Linksys). Manufacturer's NICs and ROUTERs can be mixed and matched just fine.

I suspect the issue is w/ detection of your NIC on one of your computers. I doubt the issue has anything to do w/ your router.

If that is the case, please, provide details about the two desktop computers that you have tried the Linksys NIC in (one successfully, one unsuccessfully).

(03) What operating system is each computer running?

(04) Has the computer that you have been unsuccessfull connecting to the Internet through the Linksys router ever been successfully connected to the Internet?

For now, please, answer these 4 questions and provide any other information you can think of (the more details the better). Then we'll move on to the next step.

Thank you

Setting up an MN700 Base Station with dialup

1. disable all ICS and all Proxy settings on all machines 2. connect the NIC to the MN700 using Port 1 3. set up the MN700 and the wireless connection 4. switch the MN700 to Bridging mode 5. enable ICS on the host computer The basic object is to have the working connection for your dial-up, then set up the base station as an access point only, then share the working connection via ICS through the NIC. Quite similar to having a switch box, but you're going wireless with it. You don't need to feed the MN-700 any of the normal info like your Internet Service Provider's IP/DNS, etc., because your computer already is sharing that info.
