Ethernet connection is a LAN or a CAT cable
One end of that cable will connect at the back of ur router box that u will have with u or u will get it from ur ISP .
and the other end of that cable goes to the back of ur pc in the jack which says LAN or try to plug it in any socket which fits properly.
u will a light that will start flashing at the back of ur back when u plug that cable in
to check whether u system supports ethernet connection or not
1. right click on my computer
2. goto properties
3. goto hardware
4. goto device manager
5. u will find network adapters there
click on the plus sign on the left side of network adapters
plus sign will change to minus
under network adapters look for an ethernet adapter or network controller
or 10/100 or 10/1000 fast ethernet NIC ( network interface card )
if u have one , then ur pc supports ethernet connection
U just have to connect the ethernet cabel to ur router box and at the back of ur pc and u just have to open internet explorer and ur internet would start working...
if u dont have ethernet cable with u or ur system does not have an ether net socket in ur system , u can goto any computer shop and get an ethernet cable and a socket for ur system
If u dont want to do that , u can go for a USB cable connection with ur pc or a wireless connection....
reply back if u face any further problems

I have my internet Broadband connection in my office .And I want to share this broadband connection network into my home through WiFi . But the problem is that my home is almost 1 mile away from my office...


No. Wifi has a distance of 120 feet indoors and 300 feet outdoors in a perfect environment.

Even if you were able to install wireless repeaters for the wifi you will experience many networking issues.

If you wish to share your internet you may want to look into a mobile hotspot. You can take that device anywhere where the service provider is covering.

Solved Problem on Limited Or No Connectivity error message



Solving Limited Or No Connectivity error message  


On setting up or make network connections on a Windows computer, you may encounter a Limited Or No Connectivity error message similar to the following:
 
Limited or no connectivity: The connection has limited or no connectivity. You might be unable to access the Internet or some network resources.
 
This message can result from any of several different technical glitches or configuration problems. Follow these steps to resolve Limited Or No Connectivity errors in Windows.
 
Here's How:
Determine whether your network access is functioning properly (that you can reach local network resources and the Internet). If you are using a broadband Internet and Windows XP Service Pack 2, this message is often a false error report. If your network access is non-functional. continue to the following steps.
 
If your computer connects to the network through a broadband router , resetting (powering off and on) the router may resolve the issue. If not using a broadband router, or if resetting your router only temporarily resolves the issue and the error message re-appears later, continue to the following steps.
 
If connecting to your network using Wi-Fi and using wireless security, your WEP or other security key may not be set properly. Check the wireless security configuration on your computer's network adapter and update if it necessary.
 
If connecting to your network using an Ethernet cable, your cable may have failed. Temporarily replace your network cable with a new one to determine whether this resolves the issue.
 
If using a broadband router and DHCP on your network, check your computer's IP address to verify it is valid and not a private address that starts with 169.254. An invalid address of the form 169.254.x.x signifies your computer's inability to obtain a usable IP address from your router.
 
To resolve DHCP configuration problems, proceed to the following steps.
 
Reboot your computer, router (if present) and broadband modem together, then re-test your connection.
 
If your connection remains non-functional, run the Windows Network Repair utility on your computer.
 
If your connection remains non-functional, update your router settings to change from dynamic to static IP address configuration, and set an IP address on the computer appropriately.
 
If your connection remains non-functional, unplug your router and connect the computer directly to your broadband modem. If this configuration is functional, contact the manufacturer of your router for additional support.
 
If your computer is connecting to your network directly through a broadband modem, or if your Internet access remains non-functional after following the instructions above, contact your Internet provider for support.

I found I needed a USB/Ethernet adaptor in order to connect my new broadband and purchased an ASIX AX88772A vai your product A31GY from Maplins. I'm having trouble in that the Broadband set up refuses to...


I allowed Windows Update to search for the right driver. This took a long time - I'd tried earlier but evidently hadn't let it run for long enough. It located and loaded a driver and everything was then fine: the ethernet connection (via adaptor) 'went live', my new broadband set-up software recognised it and proceeded sussessfully from there.

I assume that the device manager on my PC was correctly identifying corrupt drivers on the small CD supplied with the adaptor and that I'd managed to find uncorrupted ones on the internet via Windows Update.

This connection issue is fairly common out there, and can have various myriad causes, so it's not so easy to track down, but you could try hooking up to the modem with an ethernet cable and see if you have consistently good connections that way, to eliminate the modem as an issue, and then begin to isolate the wireless component that's not working.

Youe broadband router is working ok with the broadband cable.So it is configured with the broadband cable.Now,to work with the wireless internet,you have to configured the wi-fi router to work internet.You can see the wi-fi connection but unless & untill you will configure wi-fi router it must not work or if before it was working with the wi-fi then you can check the wi-fi router setting because it might change by mistake.Surely it will work after configurating wi-fi router.

You should have an RJ-45 cable connected from your ADSL modem to your router's internet RJ-45 plug then download network magic or similar software to input your user name and password on the router. this way you'll have internet even if your computer is turned off.

D-Link DWL-G510 Connected but no packets


Hi,
According to the user guide for your motorola broadband modem it doesnot support wirless capability , ie it can only hook your computers to the interenet using the wire. refer the following link

http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/SB5101/downloads/SB5101_UG_EN.pdf

What is required , is additional pair of hardware ie.
1. Wireless Router(eg linksys or netgear)
or
2.Router/broadband modem(given by the ISP)

Your connection would then be configured through the wireless router , that would give you wireless capability.

Refer to the following link , it gives you the a step by step guide to setting up the wireless connection .

Best of luck .....

Thanks
mandeep
