Assuming onboard ethernet?
If you know the cable is good, then it is likely that the onboard chip has failed. Cheapest solution is to obtain a seperate pci ethernet card and install that

I am trying to set up a switch between my PS3 and my PC. I have an external DSL modem. I purchased a 5 port switch(Rosewill RC405-x) but no luck. Can I use an ethernet splitter instead?


You did not explainhaow you connected all your equipment together.
Connect your PC and PS3 into the 5 port switch.
Connect your DSL modem into the 5 port switch, if there is a WAN/internet port on the 5 port switch then connect the DSL model into this port.
You may need to power off the 5 port switch wait a 1 min and power up the 5 port switch again so it can setup an IP address table for the connected ports.
If this still does not work the replace the 5 port switch with a normal 5 port hub.

New modem installed and router won't work now


First step is to make sure if the modem is working. Connect your computer directly to modem with ethernet cable and see if you can log on to internet! if yes
next step connect modem to your router's WAN port with an ethernet cable and then connect your computer to one of the LAN ports of router with ethernet cable. Power down all devices and power up modem first wait until all lights are on and then router wait until all lights are on then your computer! 9 out of 10 times this works! try good luck!!

Cannot connect to web.


Follow this steps
1. Connect the provided power adapter from the gateway's POWER port to an electrical outlet. The POWER light on the front of the gateway should be green. 2. Connect the provided gray phone cable from the gateway's PHONE LINE port to the DSL filter jack labeled DSL/HPNA. 3. Connect the yellow Ethernet cable provided with the gateway from the LOCAL ETHERNET port on the gateway to your computer's Ethernet port
With your computer completely started, verify the POWER and ETHERNET indicator lights on the front of the 2Wire gateway are green. If they are not, see "Understanding the Indicator Lights" on page 15. The INTERNET indicator light will not turn green until the gateway software has been installed and an Internet connection has been established.

I cant install my router. The internet, power, WLAN, and DMZ lights are all on, but none of the Ethernet port lights are on, but when I try to complete the install I get the following error message: Unable...


If the ethernet light is not coming that means your router is not detecting your computer. Try to plug the computer on any other port.

To check if your ethernet ports are fine you can perform a loop back test. You can take a cable which is not connected to anything. Than put one end of the cable to one ethernet port and put other end of that same cable to any other ethernet port. If the light on the ethernet ports led up means your ports are fine and u need to reinsatll the drivers of the ethernet card on your computer. Else your routers ethernet port are not functioning. If that is the case you can try to reset the router.

Let me know your finding.

**If this works please rate else let me know in case of further help.**

Lenovo WinXP - Ethernet port issue


Hi. Try to check the steps as give below.
  1. Check the ethernet port with other spare wire if you have to check if it is a wire problem or if it is itself your ethernet port.
  2. Try to connect your ethernet port directly to the router to make sure ethernet port is working and there is no connectivity issue with the switch.
  3. Try to check the System BIOS settings and see if it is not disabled from there.
  4. Lastly download any free Live OS of Linux and boot your computer using it. See if the ethernet card is working or not.
Steps from 1-3 is for checking physical connectivity of the ethernet port and the last step is for checking OS issue. If network card do not work with Live OS as well, you can directly come to conclusion that its ethernet card that is not working properly and you need to get is repaired.
Cheers!

The CISCO light is on and the computer has an internet connection, but cannot find the internet. Charter has told me it's a problem with the computer. Additionally, the number light that used to be...


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.....

4100 Modem telling me to install ethernet adapter


You do not state if the ethernet had been working before. If this is the first time to use the port on the computer, it often needs to be turned on in the BIOS of the mother board.
