Hello,

Here is a pdf file showing the specs of your computer:

The MB is a micro ATX board with 3 PCI expansion slots. The one slot appears to have had a NIC card to which you refer. You would have to obtain a PCI Ethernet card (NIC).

Thanks for using Fixya.

"MISSING OPERATING SYSTEM"


The hard drive is the problem, it probably has bad sectors corrupting the window file system. The hardware needs to be pulled and tested to confirm the diagnosis.

Connecting laptop hardwire from router, the notebook won't acknowledge that it is connected.


Is this XP or Vista or 7? You are silent as to the OS, the computer and the router - making it difficult to narrow down the possibilities.

Have you run the wizard to setup a home of small office network?

Have your run your router's software?

Have you indeed connected your computer to your router using 8 conductor Cat 5 ethernet wire?

You are pluged into a RJ-45 outlet in your computer not the RJ-11 modem connection?

RJ-11 with telephone wire will fit into a RJ-45 outlet but it will not work.

Be advised that if you plug a phone wire into your NIC (Network Interfact Card) and the other end into your telephone jack, when the phone rings, that wire will shoot 60 volts into your computer ... there will be the smell of fried components, the sound of gnashing teeth and the sound of a sash register in your future..

T636400000 does it have an ethernet card built in the unit?


You are probably looking at a RJ-11, used for telephone (dial up - modem). You are trying to put a RJ-45 connector in it.

The RJ-45 should have 8 wires while the RJ-11 may have as many as 6 connectors.

Thank you for your voluntary work with this organization.

Note: If you were to plug a RJ-11 into a RJ-45 port and if it happened that you plugged the other end of the phone cord (RJ-11) into a phone jack --- and the phone were to ring ... you would be pumping 60 volts into your computer. Be very careful with these connections. You would then need butter and jelly for your toast, which is what your computer would be.

Ok - recap: Both look very similar ...

Ethernet = 8 conductors - RJ-45

Telephone = up to 6 wires (may be 2 or 4 also) - RJ-11. NOT interchangable.

So how will you connect? If the laptop is not builltin wireless, you can get a PCMIA card for the slot on the side that will allow wireless or ethernet. Get the card at your computer store. ... Or ... use the built in modem for dialup., You would of course need a dialup account somewhere.

How do i hook up the desk computer in the a diffent room from the main computer


Is your desk computer (the one you want to move) wireless capable? If so, simply move it. If not add a PCI based wireless card to it OR, if it has a NIC (Network Interface Card) (integral to the mother bord or PCI based) you can run a ethernet cable back to the router. Wire is more secure and faster.

You can get these PCI cards at the Big Box Store that has computer equipment. Generally, the sales personell there can also advise you. If they have a computer service department, they can even install the equipment for you and tell you how to make it work, for a small fee.

A NIC looks like a large telephone jack. A NIC category 5 port is called a RJ-45 while a phone jack is a RJ-11 and would be found on your modem, if so equipped. The phone wire will (RJ-11) will fit into a RJ-45 but please dont dxo it. Phone voltage in your computer NIC will fry everything.

Can i connect my xbox to my laptop /w pc usb


Xbox Network Connection using Hub

This is the most common network configuration and is also the easiest to setup.
Step #1: Plug your network cable(RJ-45 cable) that comes from your cable/DSL modem into the uplink port of your hub. (Make sure that your uplink is switched to "on").
Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from one of the ports of the hub, directly to the Network Interface Card (NIC) installed in your computer.
Step #3: Take another RJ-45 cable and run it from a different port of your hub directly to your xbox.
**NOTE** A switch may be used in place of a hub with the same basic setup.**

That's it! No other network changes should be needed for this configuration. Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC.

Xbox Network Connection using Router

This is another common network configuration.
Step #1: Plug your network cable(RJ-45 cable) that comes from your modem into the WAN port of your router.
Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from one of the ports of the router, directly to the Network Interface Card (NIC) installed in your computer.
Step #3: Take another RJ-45 cable and run it from a different port of your router directly to your xbox.

**NOTE** In steps #2 and #3, you should not use a port that is directly beside the "uplink" port on your router, if your uplink port is being used to connect to another routing device.** If your router has a built in firewall, you will need to forward ports 8602 both incoming and outgoing to the internal ip address of your pc. Consult your device manaul for port forwarding.

That's it! Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC

Xbox Network Connection using Crossover Cable

This is the last network configuration. For this setup you need at least one NIC card.
Step #1: Plug your USB cable that comes from your modem into your PC's USB port. This should already be done, if you have a usb modem for your current internet connection.
Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from an installed NIC card on your PC, directly to the Xbox.

**NOTE** A crossover cable is only needed if you are connecting the Xbox directly to the second NIC card. If you have a device such as a switch, hub or router in between you should use a standard RJ-45 cable. This type of network setup also requires "Winroute©", a program downloadable from the world wide web. Consult the manual for specific instructions on how to set this up. Also if you have a USB ethernet adapter, you may use any of the setups described herein. USB ethernet adapter basically converts a USB cable into an RJ-45 cable.

That's it! Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC.
