You may try this: Click Start > Right click on "My Computer" > Select "Properties" > Hardware Tab > "Device Manager" button > Click the "+" next to "Network adapters" > Right click on your Ethernet adapter > select "Properties" > select Driver tab > select "Roll Back Driver" button (third button down on the left side). This will work if an updated driver is at fault.
If the above fails you could then try Right Clicking on your device in Device Manager and select "Uninstall", and after uninstalling reboot and let Windows New found Hardware Wizard pick up the device and try to correct the fault. Otherwise if the Adapter is integrated you can look for updated driver at Dell's Support site, and if added on (via PCI slot) check at the adapters Manufacturer's site for the proper driver.
If all else fails, replace the Network adapter.
Good luck.

My computer doesn't recognize my printer


It's possible that the problem is with the USB port on the printer. If you have a router, you can try to connect your printer using an ethernet cable so you won't have to configure your printer using a USB cable.

Once you have connected the printer using an ethernet cable, proceed with the installation in your computer and choose ethernet as the connection type. It should automatically find the printer on your network.

Emachine doesn't recognize the ethernet cord when plugged in


Sounds like the integrated ethernet port has gone bad. You can install a new ethernet card in one of the PCI expantion slots. Then plug the ethernet into the new card, this should take care of the problem. You can not repair a bad integrated ethernet port.

How can we set a password to the linksys wireless-g boadband router


Power On your router after after Connecting your adapter, turn on the router, wait for few seconds and then connect the router to your PC's Lan Card Port from one of the ethernet ports (not the labelled internet port). Open your internet browser and type in http://192.168.0.1 (if it doesn't work, use http://192.168.1.1) and press enter to open the page, once it's loaded, you'll be presented with the login page, in the USERNAME box, type in admin and leave PASSWORD blank (empty) and then press Enter. Once you are logged in, go to the admin section and change your password. If Admin panel isn't available, you can look for configure or change password.
If the above method doesn't work, click this LINK and follow the instructions. Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.

No internet or lan lights on? Tried reset, hard reset. All other lights, power, wireless, router are on and green. No lights on internet and lan connection. I have tried another wireless router and have no...


Hi there,
The LAN lights will only turn on once you have an Ethernet cable connected to it and the other end of the cable is connected to a working computer.
If you already have a computer connected to the Ethernet port of the router via an Ethernet cable and the lights are still off. Check if the computer you have connected recognizes a network via LAN.
If the lights on the router are still off and the computer doesn't recognize a network then that means that the port for the ethernet of your Router is bad and sadly there's no way of getting that fixed but to have the router replaced.
Otherwise if the lights are off and the computer recognizes the Network and lets you connect to the internet or other computers on the same network then its just the LED of the LAN light that's broken and I think you can live with that.
Hope this helps!

The only other solution other than rebooting is to remove the cable from the usb port and reinsert it. Sometimes the computer will recognize the drive and it will work properly.

If the number light isn't on anymore, there's something wrong with the physical connection between the PC and the router. About all you can do in this instance is to start "swapping things out".

Try these things in order. They go from easiest to more difficult.

1.) Move the ethernet cable to another "number" port on the Linksys router. Does the corresponding "number" light come on? If so, you had a bad ethernet transceiver on that port. (Note: this is *highly* unlikely, but it's worth a shot.

2.) If #1 doesn't work, try using another ethernet cable...that's the cable that runs from the computer to the "number" port on the router. If the "number" light on the router comes on after doing this, trash the old cable.

3.) If #2 doesn't work, Plug another PC into another "number port" on the router. It's easiest if you know somebody with a laptop. If the 2nd PC lights up the router's "number light", there *is* indeed a problem with your PC...namely the ethernet port. If the 2nd PC *doesn't* light up the number port on the router, your router is probably dead. Note: If you're up to it, you can take note of which cable goes where, completely disconnect the router, and take the router to the PC you want to hook it up to. If you do this, all you need to do is hook up the power supply and the PC's ethernet cable to the number port. You don't have to connect the non-number port.

If there's a problem with your computers ethernet port, just replace the card. I personally like the old Intel E100B's or 3Com 3C509's because you don't have to mess with drivers....just put it in a slot, and any Windows version 98 or or later will automatically load the drivers. If you buy a new card, you'll probably have to load drivers. Do the same thing if the ethernet jack is on-board. The system will work fine as long as only the new card is plugged into the network.

Hope this helps.....
