Wireless is one thing but when your directly connected to your router with a cat 5 ethernet cord, you should be connected automatically. Since you checked device manager and it shows no indication with any device not being recognized then it is not a driver issue. When I plug in an ethernet cable I check to see if the light is flashing from behind the Tower. Then I would make sure the network connection with the local area connection (network adaptors) is not disabled. Right click "Local Area Connection" ,check the statis. It should display "IPV4" which will display from the right of that, internet or no internet. Sometimes Your DHCP might not have issued an IP address. Other problems that may cause a web page from not showing up is within the browser. Locate internet properties/ connections/LAN settings, sometimes I find the proxy server setting enabled which is (some cases) the problem to there whole disconnection. Must be disabled.

First try to check if your wireless can actually detect a network, if it can try to remove ALLthe network that you have on your wireless network and try to add your network again, if still doest work try to uninstall and re install your wireless driver, if it still doesnt work try to restart your router, if still doesnt work try to do system restore to the point where your wireless was workin fine, lastly if still doesnt work try to contact your ISP for some configuration.

How do I get access to broadband. I have all the modems, ethernet cable links that work on another machine, but when I plug the ethernet cable in to my Emachine with a D845GVSR motherboard, I get no link...


if you need an ethernet driver or it might be something else
If you are trying to connect through a modem/router the ethernet driver should have come with a motherboard disc or the one supplied by your ISP internet service supplier
you might have to connect the usb lead to your modem to get a connection then
click start control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll to network adapters could see a yellow question mark? right click install drivers
hope this helps

Wireless Router showing as connected, but cannot access Internet.


You have _THREE_ separate network connections to check:

1. your router, through your ADSL modem, to your ISP;

2. your computer, through an Ethernet cable, to your router;

3. your computer, through its wireless adapter, to the wireless adapter in your router.

So:

1. Connect the Ethernet cable from your laptop directly to your ADSL modem, bypassing the router.
Turn the router off.
Restart the modem.
Restart the computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Enter CMD and press ENTER
Enter IPCONFIG and press ENTER
You should get output like:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
* IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 123.456.789.249
* Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 123.456.789.1
* Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Enter PING 123.456.789.1 and press ENTER
If PING does not respond, then telephone your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot your connection.

2. Turn off the ADSL modem.
Connect the Ethernet cable from your laptop to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Turn the router on.
Restart your computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Enter CMD and press ENTER
Enter IPCONFIG and press ENTER
You should get output like:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
* IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.100
* Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1
* Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Enter PING 192.168.0.1 and press ENTER
If PING does not respond, then your router is not working.
If PING does respond, connect another Ethernet cable from the WAN port on the router to the ADSL modem.
Turn the modem on, and wait until the flashing-lights on the modem, and on the router, settle-down to a steady pattern.
Type PING WWW.GOOGLE.COM and press ENTER.
If PING responds, then everything is fine.

3. If you fix #1 and #2, above, then your wireless adapter should work.

I have comcast cable net and D-link WBR 1310


Hi, forget about the USB connection since you wanted to use a router for your wireless connection. Contact Comcast asnd make sure they assist you in making your computer connect to the Internet using the ethernet connection because you are going to use the ethernet connection for the modem-router connection. Once your computer is online with the ethernet connection, you can connect your Dlink router to the modem and configure it for Internet connection. There will be more steps before you can use the wireless connection. Just make sure you can get online with ethernet connection first.

Wireless router to modem problems


Since it says network cable unplugged on the computer when wired to the router, you need to check these first:

â Make sure that the Ethernet cable is connected from the modem to the router’s Internet (WAN) port and the computer to the numbered port of the router. The computer should used to be connecting to the Ethernet port of the modem, if not; you should contact your ISP first.
â Make sure that the Ethernet adapter/LAN card on your computer is working properly. You can check that on the device manager of your computer.
â If those are all working fine that would mean the router is not yet configured for Internet access or we can say that the settings for the provider are not synchronized with the router.

To configure the router, you can do these general steps:

1. Connect the computer to the numbered port of the router and the modem to the router’s Internet (WAN) port.
2. Turn off the computer, router and modem.
3. Turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to stabilize then turn on the router. As soon as the lights are stabilized, you can turn on the computer and check for internet connection.

However, if the Internet connection still does not work. That means there are additional settings needed to be done. You can message me about the name of your ISP and I will provide you the specific steps you need.
