Local area connection shows unplugged

We put a new router in at my office, we all had to change our IP address and other connections, my computer worked fine for two day, turned it off last night and this morning I do not have a connection.
The only thing different was I had to unplug the ethernet cord and plugged it back in. I have checked the connections everywhere, shut down and restarted, tried a new connection cable, checked the new settings and they are right. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I don't know if the site took my product info. HP,desktop, Pavillion 6745c series Thanks Carol

    The router is for all the computers and the rest of them are all working fine after the change in IP address changes. Carol

    Not sure how to do the rating, will do it here. He went up and beyond to help me. He took the time to walk me thru the fix, on a Saturday afternoon even though I told him it could wait till Monday. He said I needed a new ethernet card and as soon as I popped it in, I was up and running. I had tried working on the issue myself for over 8 hours trying different things:-( Thanks so much cdhardy.

My network seting in pc not working tel me please the manualy seting for windows xp


On the desktop right click my network places and go to properties. Then if it is a desktop right click on the local area connection and go to properties scroll down to internet protocol click on it then go to properties. A new box will open change from obtain to use the following IP address. the ip address is usually a 192.168 number defined by your router. subnet is 255.255.255.0 the gateway is the ip address of your router like 192.168.1.1 The dns can be used as 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 that is googles public DNS server hit ok. If your computer is connected wireless then same thing except right click on wireless not local area connection

How Can One Cable Modem Work With Two Wireless Routers? By Terry Stockdale Leave a Comment In How to Fry a Wireless Router or Two, I wrote about my brother's experience frying a pair of wireless modems in a lightning storm. Last week, I talked about what had happened, why it happened, and what he could do to prevent the problem in the future (this was the third set of routers, plus he lost a computer motherboard in that storm).
This week, we'll look at his network layout, and why he could not get the network to set up properly.
To summarize the situation, he has an office an a shop, with computers on his network in both locations. Some connect via wired connections (Ethernet), while others use wireless connections. His Internet cable comes into the office first.
In the past, he first used Linksys wireless routers. Then DLinks. This time, he chose Belkin wireless routers.
The incoming cable (standard cable-company RG6 coaxial cable) connects to the cable modem.
Then, the cable modem connects to the WAN (wide area network "Internet") connection on the router.
The local wired ports on the router provide connections for two wired computers. Notebooks connect via wireless connections. Finally, one wired connection on the router is used to connect an Ethernet cable that runs 250 feed to the office from the shop.
That cable was the lightning problem, as it runs outside in a conduit just a little bit underground. Effectively, he's got a 250 foot antenna looking for the electromagnetic pulse from a lightning strike. Most of us don't worry about that because our equipment is so well grounded in the house, plus the Ethernet cables we use are much shorter lines. Even if we have underground cable company lines running from their switch boxes to our houses, those lines are usually only exposed about 40 to 50 feet before they enter the dwellings.
Back to the situation. When he hooked up his replacement routers, the router at the shop immediately worked. Not so, on the router in the office. The Ethernet light and the Activity light just poounded away, blinking and blinking rapidly. But, nothing connecting to the router could get to the Internet.
If they connected a computer directly to the Ethernet cable in the office, without running it into the router first, it worked just fine. But, with the router in place, it didn't work.
The problem was the way he connected the two routers. The problem is that there is no Out Of The Box connection that will work reliably. At least one thing, usually two, has/have to be tweaked one way or another.
As one might guess, the easiest way to connect would be to connect one router's WAN connector to the cable modem, using Ethernet cable, and then use Ethernet cable to connect one of the Local Area Network (LAN) connectors on that router ot the WAN router on the other computer.
There is a problem with this setup, but it's easily solved. First, if you're using identical wireless routers, as he was, the wireless routers are both trying to use the same IP Address range and subnet mask for their local area networks.
That works fine for the first router, which is connected to cable modem. On the cable modem side, it gets an IP address on the Internet Service Provider's network - often an actual Internet address and not just a private network address. On the local area network, it assigns the IP address range specified in its setup menu. This often varies by manufacturer. In the case of Linksys, this is 192.168.1.x. In the case of the Belkin routers he bought, it was 192.168.2.x.
The problem occurs at the second router. On it's WAN side, it sees a 192.168.2.x network - but it's default setting tells it to give 192.168.2.x addresses on it's local area network side, too. In other words - it's confused. It doesn't know where to find the Internet because both networks are assigned the same addresses.
The solution was to disconnect the second router's WAN/Internet cable, connect to it via a wired computer, and tell the second router to use a different IP address range. We chose 192.168.3.x.
We hooked up the Ethernet cable to the Internet/WAN side of the router again. The router started working fine, normal light blinks for activity, no more confusion. The computers could get to the Internet just fine.
Problem solved.
That solved the Internet connection problem. However, no computers in the office would be able to share files or printers with the shop, nor would computers in the shop be able to share with the office. That was both acceptable and intended, in this case.
It could be done; however, that would require a different configuration on the routers and connections.

  • 2Use this open port to connect the old router to the new routers WAN(wide area network) port. If your old router has an uplink port, use this instead of the last LAN(local area network) port and keep the last LAN port open.
  • 3Connect the computers to the ports on the new router.
  • 4Configure the new router settings to match the old router settings.
  • 5Use IPConfig to check you current IP address
  • 6Use this information to create a static IP on the computers connected to your network.
  • 7Set the Default Gateway to the IP address of the router in which the computer connects.
  • 8Check that all computers can access the internet and "see" each other on the network.

    Linksys wrt54GL v.1.1 is saying nework cable unplugged-won't ping


    Hi,
    Make sure that the computer is connected to the router properly and there is not loose conection. If it good then check the IP address on that computer. Make ssure that there is static IP address on the computer.
    The default gateway number will be the IP address to access the router set up.
    If you do not get IP address and if it says media disconected then try to disable the Local area connection and enable it.
    If that doesn't work then try on another computer.

    1. go to control panel > network and sharing/networking >change adapter settings
    2. then you'll see your local area connection
    3. right click on it>properties
    4. double click on (internet protocol tcp/ip) "tcp/ipv4 in windows vista/7
    5. the select "obtain ip address automatically" & "obtain dns server464142c.jpg automatically" click ok and click ok for the other window
    6. double click on your local area connection > detailsb0bf711.png
    7. the dns server ip show should be your router ip adress
    8. open your web explorer and type in your router ip an press "enter" you'll get your router configuration where you'll be able to change the default ip.
    I hope that it will help & don't forget to rate

    Wireless computer limited or no connectivity, ip address assigned is 169.254.96.158


    You did not specify an Operating System but I'm going to assume you are using Windows XP.

    Click Start > Settings > Network Connections - Right click your Local Area Connection and select "properties".Select TCP/IP and click the properties button. Make sure that both "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" radio buttons are selected. Close both windows by clicking OK, then power cycle the router by unplugging it for 30 seconds. Windows should automatically assign a new IP address to your router.

    Netgear DGN 2000 won't connect to internet by cable / wifi works


    Might I suggest looking at the routers configuration. This can be done by typing in 192.168.1.1 into your web browser. Typically the default log in is: User Admin, Password is password. You want DHCP set on. Save all your settings. Then reset to factory default. There should be a reset button on the router. This will reset it to when it was new- any changes you made will be gone.

    I can not connect to the local area connection.


    1. check your network adapter TCP/IP settings if its set into "Obtain as IP address Automatically".
    2. if the settings is set as Automatic and your not getting IP address then select "Use the following IP Address"
    3. use IP address followed to your router address like if192.168.0.1 in router type 192.168.0.2 or192.168.0.3 justcheck the next address IP in your network.
    4. after typing subnet IP will automatically set
    5. type the router IP address as your default gateway
    6. click OK to save your new settings

    hope this will help you

    2wire 1800hg random no internet/random access, repair/wait fixes


    It seems that you said your computer gets the ip address from your router,, which means thru DHCP of the router but if you look at the DHCP settings of your wireless card inside your computer ---the DHCP is OFF -- check your ipconfig/all command as shown in your problem too,,, your wless card does not accept the new IP which comes from your router --as DHCP is OFF on your wless card and sticks with the old ip address whereas the router maintains a new ip for your computer in its table and a mismatch occurs and you loose the internet connection ,,,,thats why repair works and then again the IP changes in the router for your computer and your computer's wless card lags behind and use the old ip adress ..... DHCP--- IS DYNAMIC , WHICH MEANS IT RENEWS THE IP address after some time and you computer gets stuck to the old one ,,, hence mismatch. "you make the DHCP -ON on your wless card too. it will be fine."
