Are the drivers installed? Look in your device manager for the drivers. You might need a new Ethernet card. Also check in the BIOS to see if it is turned on. Try hitting the delete key or one of the F keys when it starts to get to the BIOS.

I think my network card is bad. My internet / email isn't working on my desktop (although it works fine on my laptop). And the computer is not recognizing anything when I type ipconfig. So, i think i need...


since the network card is built onto the motherboard reinstalling the driver would be the best first option.

HERE is the link to the driver.
Broadcom827.exe - Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet driver Version: 8.27.1.0
Supports: Windows XP
Note: This is the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet driver for use with the Big Lake, Cortez, and Putton Bay motherboards in Windows XP.

I would try that first.

When you get home, do the following:
  1. Connect your computer to the modem with an Ethernet cable.
  2. Go to start -> Control panel -> Network Connections
  3. Find a connection called "Local Area Connection"
  4. Right-click and choose "Properties"
  5. Scroll down until you see "Internet Protocol TCP/IP"
  6. Double click it.
  7. Make sure that both buttons for "Obtain...automatically" are checked.
  8. Click "OK" until all windows are closed.
  9. Open a command prompt (Win-key+R) and type "cmd"
  10. In the following window type "ipconfig /release"
  11. When that is finished type "ipconfig /renew"
  12. When that is finished, type "ipconfig /all > C:\fixya.txt". This will create a text file on your C: drive.
  13. Copy the contents of the file and post it here as a comment, if you still can not access a webpage.

I will bookmark this page and come back here later or tomorrow to see what you posted.

Ethernet on DELL 4550 with TP-link doesn't work


Hi there,

pinging 127.0.0.1 just tells you that your network card is operational and reacheable by your system.

I have a couple of suggestions - check them out and let me know what you found out.

  • Go to Network Connections / Local Area Connection / General Tab / Properties / Internet Protocol (TCPIP) (from the list)/ Properties. Are all settings set to "Obtain automatacally..."?
  • Is your operating system Windows XP Home or Professional (with Service Pack 2 installed)?
  • Have you installed the AirPort Utility software that came on the CD? (Check Start > All Programs > AirPort)
  • You have to have the software installed in order to setup the router.
  • What is your internet connection: Cable or DSL?
  • Take a look at this document "Designing AirPort Networks" which is also on the CD that came with the device. If you don't have it, here is the download (link). Go to page 25 and follow the instructions for PPPoE (if you have DSL service) or DHCP (if you have cable service).

Let me know how that works for you and if you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to look further into that if this did not work for you.

Do a ipconfig at the command prompt and see if you are being assigned a ip from the modem. If not try rebooting the modem with the ethernet connected to modem and computer. then do ipconfig again to see if not getting internet ip, your card or modem eternet is bad. put in a new one and try again.
