Broken Ethernet Adapter

Hi, I recently had an accident, in which the ethernet cable was torn from the adapter. After everything was plugged back in, the network would not connect. I thought the cable had snapped, but upon closer inspection, I noticed that the laptop's ethernet port only had 7 of the eight pins raised. So, my question is, is there a way to replace the ethernet adapter, or should I try wiring or something. I'm eager to fix this problem ASAP, any suggestions would be helpful.

    That's a great idea, I suspected there might be a USB-to-Ethernet sort of thing. I also got a suggestion refering to an ethernet PCI card, which I didn't know about. Thanks a lot, iZen!

    I must be using the wrong name then (wouldn't be the fist time.) I meant the interchangeable card slot on a laptop.

They sell USB to Ethernet adapters that you can use. If you want to replace the adapter yourself you will have to strip the laptop down to the mother board, then proceed to de-solder then solder the new one back onto the board. You can but the replacement piece from either http://sparepartswarehouse.com if they have your make and model, or you can get it from your laptop's distributer.

Sony bravia lcd tv 40 inch


I have a Sony Bravia 46'' TV. I bought a Universal WiFi Adapter from Walmart a few years ago for about $50. You have to plug it into the Ethernet port on the Bravia using an Ethernet cable (the other end of the Ethernet cable goes into the Ethernet port on the adapter). The adapter needs also a power outlet. I do not remember if the adapter came with the Ethernet cable (likely) or I had to buy it separately.

Before buying the adapter make sure that:

1. Your Bravia has an Ethernet port (on my Bravia it is in the back of the TV), and
2. You have/use a wireless router for your home network.

Hope this helps.

Adapter issue


Hi,

Pls reconnect the Ethernet cable back to the other PC and check how is its getting IP address, automatic (Obtain an IP...) or fix (Use the following...). To do this go to your Control Panel, click on Network Connections, right click on Local Area Connection, click on Properties, highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click on Properties button. If it is the latter, note down the numbers.

Plug the Ethernet back to your laptop and do the same. Set your laptop's Internet Protocol Properties to mimic the other computer settings. The only possible difference would be is if the other computer is ticked on "Use the....", the IP address of the laptop should be different from the other PC. Example if the other PC is 192.168.1.5, make the laptop 192.168.1.6. All others stay the same.

Hope this ne of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
