Just abruptly, I cannot access internet using Ethernet cable

My HP Pavillion dv2700 stopped accessing internet abruptly when it was still running Vista Premium 64 bit. I changed to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit by formatting and fresh installation. The problem remained giving me the message Unidentified network - Public. Changing to Home/Work Network has not helped. A technician opened the laptop to check connections and reinstalled Windows, then it accessed internet for less than an hour then the problem returned. Local Area Connection says No internet access for both IPV6 and IPV4. Disabling IPV6 has not helped. Device Manager disabling/uninstalling of NVIDIA Network section and re-enabling has not helped. Now 2 months and I am getting sick. Can any expert tell me what to do?

Wow, my guess this is a 1 PC home, ?
no router stated, or if its yours or ISP (junk) I run my own gear.
try my steps for best fast correction of the problem.
is the router with WIFI, what is name of router and model number.
and get 10 times better answers.

  1. try another cable yet,or other router RJ45 Ethernet port?
  2. try 2nd PC here< or a friends,? work now? no then router issues....routers are complex, and no router stated so....
  3. if router is wifi try a pc yours or others or cell in wifi to connect does that work,???? you need to set up the router to use wifi.
  4. Ok there are 2 diagnostic paths here. 1 is router and your one and only PC and no friends have a PC, right? lets to that next.

Friends pc dead. on cable. (new cable not yours)
that means the router is broked.
even the lease time wrong can cause that.
did you reset the router to see if the connection comes up
that be first first.
if the router is still dead. you need access rights to check it.
so this help now ends.... lacking whats there or how owns it.

way 2 , 1 PC dead now, on 2 either net cables and all router ports dead. but other PC work on your router, simple no?

if just your pc is dead, it can only be 2 things
a: bad hardware (blown NIC chip) network interface chip.
b: bad software, or INSTALLED WRONG !!!
C; NIC parameters wrong called the STACK.

lets work B: (a; is hopeless, needs NIC new)
first off what PC is it and what does HP support.
the deal with HP mobo, is that the underlaying chips must
also be right for the NIC chip to work
many HP have up to 5 nic chips used there new.
(options) that right, up to 5, and the HP page covers that
if you had read it

first ill carbon date this beast 2007 it is , on the cusp of zero HP support,(10yr rule) get the software while you still can.
HP says
HP Pavilion dv2500t CTO Notebook PC

HP told me only Vista support.ed!!
well ,why leave VISTA. ? vista runs NIC ok for sure,!@

now you must find all errors it the system for drivers.
that can mess up the NIC.
since now on W7 you are committed it seems.. ouch
and you used a real windows disk to do that, not HP disk.
so there will be missing drivers doing that. or wrong.

the NIC here is
Marvell Yukon 88E8039 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller Driver

here are the only drivers that can work
off marvell site
if you use CP control panel
and RC right click the NIC, you will see what chip is there
but be warned, other chips may need w7 drivers (correct)
to allow the NIC to run right, that is why never upgraded
with out HP , support,
but i have vast times but GO THE DISTANCE on all drivers
called HARD long work.
as seem below.:
Just abruptly, I cannot access internet using Ethe - i4axvjriaaaaaelftksuqmcc

if the network stack is all good
and your pc runs on your neighbors router with same cable
then the parameters in the router are wrong.

at he elevated command prompt type, (winkey+x) (admin)
IPconfig , enter

see that IPV4 , that is your router assigned IP, using its DHCP server. mine is set up with 10's on purpose.
the gate way must be correct and not blank

The link speed of my ethernet adapter was set to "1Gbps full-duplex". I changed it to "Auto-Negotiate". Tadaaa "Connected to Internet"

and what I did in order to use DHCP ip address without losing the default gateway was to add the default gateway in the advance tab of the adapter...It works fine.
Steps: Open Network and Sharing Center-> Local Area Connection--
-->Properties->Internet Protocol IPv4->Properties Tab->Advance Tab--->Default gateway add Tab.
Add your gateway and you are good to go....

SOURCE: Not able to connect to internet, using wireless router (SKy),

One of the things that I have seen that might fix this problem is running a program called winsock fix. What this does it reset/rebuild your network config on your laptop. You will need to download this program from the other computer and then take it to the laptop via thumbdrive/cd. Here is the link. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: the Broadcom wireless network adapter disabled

first you can try and boot to the recovery partition by tapping F11 during start up.
then you can go to advanced options and choose Hardware/driver reinstallation.
then you pick your wireless device from the list. adn reinstall it and restart.
if that does not fix it try this:
remove your a/c cord and remove batter too
-hold power button for 30 seconds and dont let go
-then put battery back on and connect a/c cord
-boot to the BIOS by tapping F10
-when it comes up hit F9 to load it to default settings.
-then hit F10 to save and exit and check it
-if its still not showing up i would suggest a full system recovery
If a full system recovery does not fix it i would have to say you have to replace your wireless card.
Good Luck.

HP has an Extended Service on many of the models with wireless failures.Check whether your computer is eligible for a free repair.You will need the P/N and Model from the Service Tag on bottom.

My HP Pavillion dv2700 stopped accessing internet abruptly when it was still running Vista Premium 64 bit. I changed to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit by formatting and fresh installation. The problem remained...

If you are at home, your network settings have to be a "Private" network. Go into the control panel > Network and Sharing Center > Look under the text "View your active network" and click on the blue text. Make sure you choose "Home Network".

Now, click on Advanced sharing settings, you will see it to the left and make sure that network discovery is turned ON. save your changes and exit.

Now, bring up a browser window and don't worry if it doesn't connect yet. Once the window is up, look tot he right and choose the drop down menu "Tools", scroll down to the bottom and choose "Internet Options", Click on the tab "Connections", look to the bottom of that window and clicl on "LAN settings", When that windown opens make sure that only the top box is checked and that all others are unchecked. The only thing you want checked is "Automatically detect settings".

Now, reboot the machine and see if you have internet access.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Unable to access internet through local area network.

in this case first you need to check the ip address by goin on start- run - type cmd -- then type ipconfig , if its giving you a valid ip address then try to access internet and select the option that says automatically detect settings and you will find that option under -- open internet explorer then go to tools- internet option- connections - lan settings
if you are not getting any ip address then do a right click on my compuetr icon on your desktop adn go to properties-- hardware- device manager-- network adaptors - and uninstall all the adaptors and then do a right click on network adaptors and then scan for hardware changes .

and the third option is to uninstall Internet explorer 8 adn try with IE 6
