Ensure that you have the correct drivers loaded for your ethernet adapter. To do this go to the device manager.

  1. Click on Start and then Control Panel.
  2. Click on the System and Maintenance link.
    Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply double-click on the Device Manager icon and then proceed to Step 4.
  3. In the System and Maintenance window, click on the Device Manager link near the bottom of the window.
Once you're there, check for any signs of a Question mark (?) or a yellow yeild sign with an exclamation point (!) beside it. It is likely that the correct ethernet controller driver is not loaded. If there is such a problem, search for a driver on the web that suits your ethernet controller, download it, and install it. If you need help with this, post back...I'll be glad to help.

Regards,

DP

Changed the display screen not can't connect to the internet says local and wireless card aren't plugged in


usually the screen has two cables that are connected to the wireless card. you won't get signal if you don't plug those in. however.. it is not recognizing your wireless card. go to device manager and check if the drivers are not installed or if the pc is not recognizing it.

right click on my computer, manage. and on the left device manager.

KEEP GETTING ERROR 321 WHEN SETTING UP LINKSYS WRT54GS ROUTER


Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

All drivers are installed properly and internet will NOT WORK!!


Here is a utility that will correct corrupt network settings in XP, download it, run and then it will ask to restart the computer.

Also, verify that your Win OS or 3rd party firewall is not blocking the internet.

New belkin router f5d7230-4


You have 3 units: PC >cable modem > router.

First turn your PC off . Take the power connectors off the cable modem and the router.

Then, Plug an ethernet cable into the internet cat5 port on the cable modem.
Take the other end of the cable an plug it into the Internet/Wan port on the router (I believe it is green on your router.
Then take another ethernet cable, plug it into any one of the 4 ports on the router.
Take the other end and plug it into your PC.
Plug in the power to the cable modem first. Wait 30 seconds. Then plug in the power to the router.
Again, wait 30 seconds. Then start up your PC.
After the PC boots to your desktop, you should be able to get online.

This procedure will work with cable Internet providers, If you have DSL, your username and password needs to be put into the router's setup.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Bought a new computer with vista instead of XP and cannot connect to internet via the ethernet line from my cable modem. what is the secret? Usually plugging it in is enough when I have moved or changed...


Yes! plugging it in on the Ethernet cable on the modem to the computer should get you online. If your not able to get online, you may want to check the following:

1. Make sure that the Ethernet adapter on the computer is enabled. If you can't find the Local Area Connection icon in your Network connections (control panel\network and sharing center), check if the network adapter is properly installed.

2. Some cable service providers require the MAC/Physical address of the Computer to get it online through the modem. If the old computer is working with the modem, you may want to contact your ISP and ask their assistance in getting you online using your new computer.

Asuming you are knowledgable about hooking up broadband i will guess that you know for a fact the its a good connection on the broadband routers side and there is actuall internet access and the problem is with your laptop.

If so then make sure you have the right installs.

get into your start menu at the bottom left> hover over settings>click on network connections and wait for the window to open. Right click on " LOCAL AREA CONNECTION" and select properties.

The little box should open showing a scrollable menu and say " Local area connection Properties" at the top. Make sure in the list of installed Items, you have at least the TCP/IP internet protocal installed and add version 6.


Also you can try cycling the power to your internet broadband router. Hook up the laptop, turn it on and log in, If you have a router that you are using to branch off your broadband to several computers, then unplug, wait 30 seconds and polug back in and it should register. If you are plugging directly into the Broadband router, cycle the power on it the same way.

Also make sure you are plugged into the right port on the router:)

Hope this helps.
