Cat5 or ethernet port is a oversized phone jack to put it simply. You may need to purchase this PCI ethernet card and install it of you do not see it installed.
Hope this helped!

HDMI cable connects to monitor but not to tower


HDMI cable has a specific design for specific purposes, if your tower is supposed to be used through a different port, use it, the other device is the one that will have to adapt to it. An "HDMI to other port" wire shouldn't exist, since it wouldn't bring the advantages of an HDMI wire.

Acer aspire 5335 connects to wireless internet, but not with eathernet cat5 cable?? thanks


Make sure the Network Connection for the LAN is not disabled. Click Start/Control Panel and look for the Network Connections. Make sure the Network Connection for the LAN is not disabled. if it is disabled, right click on it and select enable.

Also the port could be bad on the computer. If it does not light up when you put the cable in the port might be damaged.

Where to contact pc speaker in compaq despro


Look real good in the motherboard with a flashlight and normally you will see a port label SPKR. The cable will only fit in the speaker slot so you don't have much to worry about. Normally this cable runs from the back of the CD/DvD drive to the motherboard.

Setup belkin wireless network


Hi,
1.Connect a Cat5 cable into the Ethernet port on the back of your cable or DSL modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the "Connect to Modem Internet/WAN" port on the back of the Belkin Router.
2.Connect a Cat5 cable into the "Ethernet" port on the back of any desktop or stationary computers and then plug the other end of the cable into one of the LAN ports on the back of the Belkin Router. Start with port one and work your way up with subsequent computer connections.
3.Turn the Belkin Router on by plugging the router into a power outlet. Allow 30 seconds for the router to fully boot up. All computers tethered to the modem via a Cat5 cable have access to the Internet.
4.Open the Wi-Fi Wizard on your laptop and turn on the Wi-Fi antenna. Once turned on, the Wizard finds all network connections in your area. Connect to your network to establish an Internet connection. Complete this step for each computer not tethered to the Belkin Router with a Cat5 cable.

I have 2 buildings about 500 Ft apart connected with 2 conductor telephone cable, formerly used for a radio tie line. I would line to connect to the internet from the other building.


326 feet is a max run for cat5/cat5e cable. You would need a repeater for runs longer than that. Wireless will not work properly either without a singal repeater. You could look for outdoor repeaters and run a drop line to the 2 building but this will be costly

CAT5e


The max distance that Cat5e or Cat6 can be run is 90 meters or 295 feet. As cnavarro stated, signal repeaters would be best utilized in your situation up to 590 feet otherwise fiberoptics are the next and more expensive route. You should also divide the run equally with the repeater as it would not be effective with an offset balance.
