My dell GX620 desktop does not power when ever I plug in the network (RJ 45) cable. Also if the system has boots to desktop, and I plug in the network cable it automatically goes off.


1) Does it have a separate Ethernet Card, or is it integrated?
(Part of the motherboard)

Reasoning?

The Dell Optiplex GX620 comes with Integrated networking.
The chipset is a Broadcom 572.
It's part of the motherboard, and you plug the Ethernet Cable into the back of the computer.

However, you could have a separate Ethernet Card, plugged into the white PCI expansion slot on the motherboard.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Optiplex-GX620-SFF-Motherboard-F8101-KH290-PY423-20-Available-/370743464509?pt=Motherboards&hash=item565208523d

A) If you are using a separate Ethernet Card, replace it.

B) If you are using the Intergrated networking of the motherboard, (Plug Ethernet cable into back of computer), use an Ethernet Card instead.

White PCI slot.

You have a short circuit when you plug the Ethernet Cable into the motherboard. Don't use the motherboard networking, use an Ethernet Card.

2) Plugging an Ethernet Cable into a computer that is on, = No.
It is not a Plug N' Play item.

(Not stating this is what you are doing.
Just posting in case you are. Burns out the Ethernet chipset on the motherboard)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Ethernet issues.


Can you plug pick up internet with a different laptop in the same place? If another laptop can plug in with the same ethernet cable and get a signal then you know its "your" laptop and not the cable or the connection, If it is your laptop that is the problem, check to see if your network card is working properly by going into device manager. My guess is you need a new network card.

A network cable is unplugged


This could be caused by a few things. Make sure your cable it plugged into the Router and the Network on your computer. Also make sure there is a green light on the Router and your Network card, if not you might have a bad cable. Swap out your cable first to ensure the simplest fix is tried first. Also try another network plug on the router (If you only have one plug, go to the next step)


If your still having issues, try to replace the network card on your computer, this is probably going to cost around $10 - $15 at most.

If you are still having issues you will want to replace your router.

How do i set up 2 IPs on my system so they dont clash??


The best way is to use two different NIC's (network interface cards) in one machine.
After you install the second NIC card plug a cable into it also so you will have two different cable connected to your router. If you are using DHCP it will pick up an available IP so you won't have any conflict with the first NIC card. If you want to set them up with static IP's open the properties of the first one and copy them exactly except for the IP address. Just give the second card the next number.
Example:
1st card: 192.168.1.100
2nd card: 192.168.1.101
Use the same Subnet, Gateway, DNS 1&2 and if your WINS is setup on card one use the same also.

I am facing network problem since two days back. plz give me advise what should i do manually.


There can only be 3 problems
1. the network card is stuffed, or disabled - to enable, go to your Control panel, select System, select Device manager, Select Network Adapters, Select your Network Card, right click and select enable(if disable is displayed, then your card is fine)
2. the network cable is faulty - try a new or other cable
3. the network plug, where the cable plugs in at the wall is faulty, or not patched in your server room - this must be sorted out by your Network administrator

Cant get network to recognize the cable connection


XP doesnt install the right device drivers for the NIC card (LAN card) if you have the origianl Device utilities disk, you can insert it and find those drivers (they will be checked) if no disk, use another pc and go to support.dell.com and enter the tag# locate the networking device drivers and its going to be a Broadcom 47xx driver. if not that try others till it works.
