Network connection says connected but receives nothing

Thinkpad R30 Laptop 700mHz 504m RAM running XP v.2002 w/ SP2 Internet Connection Status says connected and 700+ packets sent but zero packets received in 2+hours-- using LAN and DSL currently connecting fine for two other computers incl this one. Both ends of enet cable show green LED's. IE says no connection to Internet is currently available.
To get it to show a "connection" at all, I had to create a manual Alternate Configuration in Internet Protocol (IP/TCP). Without that, in the automatic configuration it wouldn't connect at all, Network Connections said No Connection, was trying to connect using a very strange gateway address with subnet mask, both of which are incorrect for this network, and in that configuration it was not receiving an IP address. Remember I have now given it a manual IP address so possibly it's still unable to automatically receive and may not be connecting to the router for an IP adress.
I notice in Local Area Connection Properties it has installed a second IP/TCP named Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 which another XP laptop I'm running alongside it doesn't have. I have turned off this MS TCP/IP version 6 but it seems to have no effect.

    Your "ohms" expert really really did a wonderful and long 4-hour job on this and fixed my problem by finally determining the network adapter needed to be reinstalled.

    Then I forgot to leave feedback. Will check how I can do that tomorrow!

We are using software called Brainware Columbus to do Remote OS Deployment, Software Deployment & Remote Support. We have had LANDesk installed on all our computers, and since we uninstalled LANDesk and installed McAfee 8.7i Enterprise, we have had some difficulties with some computers where they show they are connected to our Wired Lan, but their IP settings have dissappeared, the settings are blank. When you click on the repair option for the network, it gives an error straight away, and we have also tried Uninstalled & Reinstalling the NIC, that also doesnt solve the problem. Please help

I drop my wireless internet connection in my house when I connect the computer KW-SA240 PCTOTV, I prbe in each of the 4 channels has and the same problem, I hope I can help

you might have to open up your network connections click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled
make sure your modem/routers settings are correct ie:password user name,firewall settings to allow your internet to connect also test the lead/s whether usb or ethernet you might check your modem first to make sure that you are getting a connection
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down network adapters + expand Ethernet driver you might see a yellow question mark? This means you need to update the driver right click you will have options to update driver disable uninstall or select properties general you will have the options to troubleshoot or to update driver rollback or uninstall
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver right click to install driver
last resort ring your ISP internet sevice provider get them to check your modem for internet access online
hope this helps

HP laptop shows full internet signal, wont let me connect

First, the "Network Cable Is Unplugged" - don't worry about that. That is just informing you that your WIRED connection is unplugged, which is fine because you are using wireless.

Now the actual issue of no internet...first try by unplugging your internet modem for 20 seconds, and plugging it back in. Next do the same with your wireless router. At this point your computer will disconnect form the wireless network and you may need to reconnect it. After the reconnect see if you still have the same issue, but chances are it should be fixed :-)

If that does not work let me know and we can further troubleshoot the issue!

Connection Cable Unplugged Realtek RTL8139/810x

I got the same NIC (Network Interface Card) a few weeks ago, and my connection has been dropping out as well. I've tried different versions of drivers, but without success. I was playing around with the NIC's settings, and this is how I fixed the problem.

Right click on "My Computer"
select "Properties" from the list
select the tab named "Hardware"
click on "Device Manager"
expand the tree item named "Network Adapters"
right click on the Realtek RTL8139 and select "Properties" from the list
go to the "Advanced" tab
Select "Link Speed & Duplex Mode"
On the drop-down menu to the right, select "10M Full mode"
Click "Ok"
close out of Device Manager and My Computer properties.

The problem should be solved. The only disadvantage to this is that speeds on a local network will be slow on this computer, or if you're lucky enough to have a +10 meg line straight to your house.

Hope I helped,

A network cable is unplugged

OK, in order to solve this problem, I will need more information:

1) What is your operating system (i.e. Windows XP? Windows Vista?)

2) Is this a laptop or a desktop computer?

3) If it is a laptop, is there a switch on the case that turns on and off the wireless ability? Check your user manual - it might be as simple as turning on the wireless switch.

4) If it is a desktop, what kind of wireless adapter did you install?

I'll be able to help more when I get this information. In the meantime, here are a few things you can do:

First of all, you need to delete all of the duplicate connections from Network Connections. They won't really hurt, but they're not helping either. To delete them, just right-click on them one at a time and choose "delete."

Next, you need to understand what the message "a network cable is unplugged" refers to: this has nothing to do with wireless. If there is no actual hard-wire cable connected to your computer, the port (that's the opening that you plug a network cable into) will tell Windows that it is empty. This results in the message "a network cable is unplugged." You can ignore it, or - if you plan to use this computer with a wireless connection only - you can right-click on the connection in Network Connections and choose "disable." This stops the message from appearing, and can be reversed (enable) at any time.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Linksys wireless-g

It has nothing to do with the brands. I do have different peripherals of different brands and they work well.

Maybe your son's laptop is more recent than yours. When you connect the wireless adapter to your laptop, does it detect the wireless network? I remember having a similar problem on vacation. At the hotel, I could'nt connect to the wireless network. The tech support told me to adjust some settings on my laptop. He said to go to the Network connexions, right-click on the wireless connection and selection Properties. Click on Configure...And select the Advanced button. Then on the list select Power on saving Mode. Other than Max power save mode.

Avermedia Tech AVerMedia QuickPlay

Unfortunately the Avermedia Quickplay doesn't support audio. If you want the matching audio too, you'll have to either use your computer's native audio (if it's in the same room), or hook it up to your TV with a separate cable.
