Says ethernet adapter not plugged in

My 2 Wire ethernet adapter (plugs into USB and out to phone line) suddenlystopped working.. Power light is on, but network light is not. I havenot changed any software...I tried 2 different adapters and both havethe same problem. It is on a Mac G4, OS 10.3... This happened once beforeand removing the appleairport2.kext from the extensions folders got itto work... not happening this time.
In the network settings, it showa red dot and says ethernet adapter not connected...but it is! It recognizes "en1" and "en3" when I change adapters, but still says they are not plugged in...AndI've tried different ports...
Modem is working fine on the hard wired computer and on wireless.. this old computer has no wireless card, hence the need for the ethernet adapter.
Any suggestions?

I always try to do the obvius first but sometimes overlook this point. Try changing your cable. I've run into this with my usb cables all the time. Hope this helps.

My magicjackplus says to check phone line (was working for a year+ before this). It will work with any phone but only if it is plugged into the computer. Does the adaptor need replacing?


the adapter simply converts your 120 volt house current to 5 volt DC for the MagicJack. Plugging the USB wire into the computer supplies this power to the MagicJack. So a new adapter might just solve the problem.

Sounds like Radio Shack sold you a bad power adapter or an adapter that doesn't meet the power and current requirements of the modem. Bring the old power adapter and the new one back to Radio Shack and tell them to get you one like the old one.

Followed all the set up steps but my DSL light would not stay on


  • 1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on your wall. If you do not have Internet ports installed in your home, connect a phone line adapter to a phone line jack. The adapter makes the phone line wider so Ethernet cables can connect to it. This does not block your phone from use.
  • 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back side of the Netgear DSL modem.
  • 3 Connect the Netgear DSL modem to a local power source. The power plug inserts into the modem via a small port on the rear of the modem.
  • 4 Insert a second Ethernet cable into one of the numbered ports on the back of the modem. Run the cable to your computer and plug it into the Ethernet port on the computer.
  • 5 Look on the back end of the DSL modem for an HTTP: address. Type this into your Internet browser's search bar. The Netgear DSL modem menu appears on the screen.
  • 6 Select how many computers are to use the modem, if you are using it with other DSL modems and set up a password (the default username and password is "admin"). Click "OK" to initiate the changes you made to the menu. You can now use your Netgear DSL modem to connect to the Internet.

    Modem router(quest gateway) works on one computer but won't connect to two other computers. was working on two ,and now only the one wired to it.


    Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off.
    1. Step 2
    Connect all the devices.

    Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.

    2. Step 3
    Turn on your modem, router, and PC.

    Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC.

    3. Step 4
    Verify lights are on for your devices.

    Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly.

    4. Step 5
    Install and configure software.

    Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure  other settings.

    Router is not working


    What does this line mean? "It's reading all the other computers but isn't working."

    Do you mean that the other computers are hard-wired to ports 1, 2, 3 & four on the back of the router? Or are you going totally wireless? Is your cable, or satellite modem plugged into the port labeled WAN?

    1. Place the router in an open and central location. Do not plug the power adapter into the router.

    2. Turn the power off on your modem. If there is no on/off switch, then unplug the modem’s power adapter. Shut down your computer.

    3. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your modem and plug it into the WAN port on the router.

    4. Plug an Ethernet cable into one of the four LAN ports on the router. Plug the other end into the Ethernet port on your computer.

    5. Turn on or plug in your modem and wait for it to go through its boot cycle. It takes about 30 seconds. Watch the lights on the modem to tell when it has finished booting.

    6. Plug the power adapter into your router. Again, wait about 30 seconds for the router to boot.

    7. Turn on your computer.

    8. Verify the link lights on the router. The power light, WAN light, and the LAN light for the port you plugged your computer into.

    Now, open Internet Explorer (web browser) and in the Address line, type 192.168.0.1 and hit enter. You should see a login screen. Enter a user ID of admin and leave the password blank.

    This should log you into the configuration utility for your router. You should see a Setup Wizard button that will walk you through setting up your router.

    2 wire 2700 hg-b


    The 2Wire 2700 is a residential gateway, a modem and router in-one. There is an RJ-11 jack in the back of the gateway and this is where your dsl phone cord plugs in. There are four RJ-45 jacks in the back for connecting devices using ethernet cable. As a router is can operate both wirelessly and wired. For wireless operation you'll need the WEP key which is located on the tag on the bottom of the gateway. It's the number enclosed in brackets, between the two bar codes.

    Hi!
    Kindly check if you are using the same 2wire power adapter that came originally with the whole package, also try plugging it in another power outlet, like the kitchen or bathroom, & see how long the power light stays on. Plug it straight in the wall socket. If power light keeps going on/off even if you have plugged it in another power outlet, maybe you need to restore this modem back to its default settings. That can be done by doing a hard reset on the modem, push the reset button (found between the ethernet & usb ports), but be sure you have a record of your username & password on your internet account.

    Cannot install my Belkin ADSL modem with wireless G router and wireless G USB network adapter


    OK.

    First plug your router directly into your computer via the ethernet cable that came with the router. You'll want to connect the cable to the port on the router that says "Internet" (it's ussally to the far left when looking at the back of the router) make sure the other end is plugged into your computer's Network Interface Card (NIC).

    Plug your computer into the modem via the UBS connection.

    Insert the setup cd that came with the router and follow the prompts.

    Once configured then unplug the ethernet cable from your computer and plug it into the modem (which should have an ethernet (RJ-45) jack as well as a USB.

    Now you can either hook up to the wireless connection using a wireless adapter OR you can plug your computer in with a ethernet cable to one of the outgoing ports on the back of the router.
