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

    This router is for all the computers. 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.

How to find a IP address for my emachines laptop


go to start -- run and type in CMD
hit enter to open a black command prompt window

type in "ipconfig" without the quotes and hit enter. This will give you your IP address.

If you need the IP address from your provider that you are using out on the public internet, just go to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ and it will tell you what your external public IP address is.

4. Go to your desktop, and right-click on something called Network Place or My Network Places (If you're using Windows Vista or 7, look for the Network and Sharing Center through Control Panel)
5. Click Properties. You should now see something called Local Area Connection or something similar
6. Right-click on your connection (titled Local Area Connection if you're using an ethernet cable or Wireless Network Connection if you're on WiFi) and click Properties
7. Under the General tab, double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
8. A new window appears. On its own General tab, click the box beside Use the following IP address
9. Type in ones until you fill the box up (it should read 111.111.111.111)
10. Press Tab. You'll notice the Subnet Mask section automatically fill sup with numbers
11. Click OK
12. Click OK to bring you back to the "Local Area Connection" screen
13. Right-click Local Area Connection and Click on Properties again
14. Again, under the General tab, double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
15. Select Obtain an IP address automatically
16. Click OK
17. Click OK
18. Go back to your DOS prompt, type "ipconfig /renew" and press Enter. This restores your internet connection.
By now, the network should've assigned a new IP address to your computer automatically.

Change ip address


How To Change Your IP Address





How do I change my IP? There are MANY methods to change your IP. Some methods will work for you but may not work for someone else and vice versa.

If your IP is static, then you CAN’T change it without contacting your ISP.
If you have a long lease time (explained in this article) on your IP then you won’t be able to change your IP without cloning your MAC address, which I’ll explain later in this article.
It definitely helps if you know how the IP is being assigned to you.
You can read our DHCP definition to get a better understanding.
What is an IP lease time? IP lease time is the amount of time your ISP determines you’ll be assigned a particular IP. Some IP lease times are just a few days and other IP lease times could be set for a year or more. This setting is completely up to your ISP.
One of the easier methods to change your IP is to turn off your modem/router/computer overnight. Then turn it back on the following morning. This method WILL NOT work if your ISP has a long lease time set for your IP.
The following method will ONLY work if your computer is being assigned your external IP and not a router.
How to determine if your computer is being assigned the external IP
If your connection is direct to your computer and your computer gets the public IP and not a router, you can try this:
For Windows 2000, XP, and 2003
1. Click Start
2. Click Run
3. Type in cmd and hit ok (this opens a Command Prompt)
4. Type ipconfig /release and hit enter
5. Click Start, Control Panel, and open Network Connections
6. Find and Right click on the active Local Area Connection and choose Properties
7. Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
8. Click on Use the following IP address
9. Enter a false IP like 123.123.123.123
10. Press Tab and the Subnet Mask section will populate with default numbers
11. Hit OK twice
12. Right click the active Local Area Connection again and choose Properties
13. Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
14. Choose Obtain an IP address automatically
15. Hit OK twice
16. Go to What Is My IP to see if you have a new IP address

For Vista
1. Click Start
2. Click All Programs expand the Accessories menu
3. In the Accessories menu, Right Click Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator
4. Type ipconfig /release and hit enter
5. Click Start, Control Panel, and open Network and Sharing Center. Depending on your view, you may have to click Network and Internet before you see the Network and Sharing Center icon
6. From the Tasks menu on the left, choose Manage Network Connections
7. Find and Right click on the active Local Area Connection and choose Properties (If you’re hit with a UAC prompt, choose Continue)
8. Double-click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
9. Click on Use the following IP address
10. Enter a false IP like 123.123.123.123
11. Press Tab and the Subnet Mask section will populate with default numbers
12. Hit OK twice
13. Right click the active Local Area Connection again and choose Properties
14. Double-click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
15. Choose Obtain an IP address automatically
16. Hit OK twice
17. Go to What Is My IP to see if you have a new IP address

Some people have inquired about manually assigning their IP address. This IS possible, but you run a very high risk of your ISP banning you from connecting to the internet. To manually change your IP, follow the steps above for your Operating System. In step 9 or 10, depending on your O/S, enter an IP similar to the one displayed in the command prompt window. For example, if the IP displayed in the command prompt window is 75.1.2.3, change yours to 75.1.2.4. You’ll also need to manually enter the Subnet, Gateway and DNS Server IP addresses as well. If the new IP you give your computer doesn’t work, chances are someone else on the ISP network has already been assigned that IP. You’ll need to move on to the next one and keep trying until you find an open one. However, some ISPs match up your MAC or modem data to the IP that’s been assigned. If those 2 things don’t match up, you won’t be able to connect no matter what. If your router gets the IP and not your computer, you’ll need to http in to your routers interface and manually assign the IP there. It’s pretty much the same method as assigning the IP to your computer. The method that varies is in how you reach your routers interface. You can get the instructions from your manufacturer’s website.

I have a dell 2400 and it is giving me an invalid IP address 169.254 PleASE help!


An IP address that begins with 169 usually means you are having some temporary problem with your local (nearest) router or modem finding your IP address automatically from your ISP. If you're at home (nobody else is on the network you use to get out to the 'net), then it's OK to change things around for your own sake. I'm also assuming you're on a broadband network, and not dial-up, or another type of network that may require special IP address settings. If you are, or don't know, it doesn't hurt to call them and find out.
No matter what internet browser you like to use, Windows Internet Explorer's settings control how you 'get out' to the 'net. So, do the following:
  1. Check your Windows Internet Explorer Options to make sure they're set to automatically find an IP address for you. Open 'Internet Explorer'--click on the 'Tools' button, then click on the bottom item 'Internet Options'; once it opens, then click on the 'Connections' tab, then click down where it says 'LAN settings'. Your 'Local Area Network' settings window should pop up. Just make sure 'Automatically Detect Settings' is the ONLY thing checked. AGAIN, IF YOU'RE IN AN OFFICE ENVIRONMENT, DON'T DO THIS, CALL YOUR OFFICE NETWORK TECHNICIAN! Sorry for the CAPS, but that's very important, because it's normal, in fact very important, that the settings any local office net-tech has put there remain the same--and they're often quite different, so he's the authority, not me!
  2. Accept the 'Automatic' settings by clicking 'OK', then 'OK' again, in standard 'Windows' fashion.
  3. Power off your router and modem by unplugging the power cable (not the network cable) from the back of each);
  4. Wait about 10-20 seconds, then power on your router first, waiting a few seconds, then plug in your modem. Let each find their respective IP addresses automatically.
  5. Close out of Internet Explorer, then wait until your router and/or modem LEDs are all on and blinking randomly.
  6. Re-open Internet Explorer. You should be up and running.
Hope this helps.

IP Address Problem Duplicate address. ipconfig /renew causes errors


Go to Control Panel, then Network Options. Right click the "Local Area Connection" and click properties. Double click the TCP/IP and once that opens you can specify a different IP address manually for that pc which is different from the one your currently being assigned. If you need to see what address your currently pulling, when in the Network Options, Right click the Local Area Connection and click on Status. Click the Support Tab and then show Details. This will give you the current IP address, the Subnet Mask, the Gateway address and the DNS address(s). When specifying a new IP address, only change the last number to something higher than what it is now. If you currently have 192.168.1.5 for instance, specify a new address that is like 192.168.1.16. For the rest of the info, make it the same as what you saw under details. once you do that and hit OK a couple times, it will change it and resolve the IP address conflict for good. :)

Cheers!

How do i find information about my address and port?


im guessing here you mean your ip addess and open ports on your computer right ??

ok firstly your computer uses 3 ip address
  1. loop back ,, 127.0.0.1 (slandered) for all computers , this is used for internal progressing and phrasing.
  2. a local ip address ,,This ip vaires what it is basically is the ip address given to your computer by your router ,, its the address that the router recgonises as your computer , so different computers connected to the same router have differect local address.. it usually starts with 192.168.XXX.XXX or 10.0.X.X
  3. Foreign / Internet Ip address, no matter what type of router this address varies for each router!!!!!. lets say you have 7 computer on the same router , each will have the same foreign address but different local address's.
PORTS !!!
will ports are used for different things for example web surfing is port 80, ftp is 21, different software uses cretin ports to allow computers to different machines over the internet or other network to interface with them directly..

Hope i explained all that simply,, well here is how you get the info u need..in all Operating systems the process is a bit different here i will outline 2 ways each,, for XP and for win vista / win 7.. ok lets get started..

XP..

to determine local ip address,,
  • click start , control panel
  • network / internet connections / network connections
  • double click on local area connection or what ever name u see..
  • click support,, there you go see your ip.. click details for more info
alternate method
  • double click on the network connection icon to the buttom right of your screen.. follow last step above

  • click start then run
  • type cmd and hit enter
  • type ipconfig /all and hit enter
that will list all the info about your connection for you..

ok ports in win XP

click start then run,, type cmd and hit enter
type netstat - n

that will list all ports / ip address that they are connection too..
the ports that you see are the open ports.. there is an alternat method to see it in the windows firewall setting but i did not list it since its most incomplete,, background processes dont show up there ,, like a virus..

skip to foreign address !!! BELOW

ok vista...or windows 7

start control panel
network
manage network connection / view or edit network connections
double click on local area network click support if necessary ,, you will see your ip address there (LOCAL)

  • OR ,, click start, in the run box type cmd and hit enter
  • type ipconfig /all hit enter
  • that will list your local address among other things..
PORTS ,, VISTA / WIN 7
click start
in the run box type cmd and hit enter
type netstat -n and hit enter,,
this will list all open ports and the ip address that they are connected to..


FOREIGN ADDRESS
this is easy.. go to http://www.whatismyip.com the address that shows up is your foreign address..

well I hope thats a Fixya, or at least a very helpful after all that typing it would be sad if i didnt answer your question or was wrong abou what you wanted to know.. good luck and let me know if you need any more help..

Running windows xp.local area connection says network cable unplugged.Thats not the case,all cables connected. local area connection 2 says limited or no connectivity


On local area connection 2, right click and goto properties. Now scroll down to the 'internet protocol version 4' or 'tcp/ip' and click properties again.

Make sure that everything is set to automatic if it is not. If you have a router than the router may refuse a connection attempt from your PC if it is not setup to assign DHCP address. If this is the case then you will have to setup a address manually.
