Hi
Ethernet cables must be placed the right way round. Make sure that you are using the ethernet socket - it looks like this.

If it is an older computer you may not have an ethernet port. It is possible to install one - you will need to buy the necessary hardware.

It could also be that your ethernet cable is broken, or that you have the wrong cable. You can buy a new one from amazon.

Hope this helps
Philip

No this seems to be a problem on dells, you can have a new cord but the socket appears to be about 1/16' deeper causing them to not clip into place.

This was bought at an estate sale and I'm trying to find out where to connect the ethernet cable to set her up on qwest home internet. Either I'm nuts or the ethernet cable included with the set up...


the two lines in the back, if they are too small for the ethernet cable, are telephone jacks for a phone modem. look and see if there is a "line in" and "line out" labeled, or a picture of a telephone next to one of the jacks- if so, then this is a phone modem card, and not an ethernet card. ethernet cards ONLY have one jack.

Where is the ethernet cable connected to this laptop


This is an older laptop that comes with a modem (RJ-11 on the back), not an ethernet adapter onboard. You can try to get a PC card ethernet adapter (type 2 or type 3 fit the slot) or a USB ethernet adapter. The USB port was not available on models that came with WinNT.

I wish I could be of more help.

Internet cable won't plug into phone jack on the back of the pc


on the rear of the pc you may have 2 plug slots, one for the nodem and one for the lan (ethernet cable)
modem port looks like this:e29bde8.jpg

lan (ethernet ports) look like this:ca0da14.jpg

you will notice that the modem is smaller that the ethernet port, look for port that the ethernet cable fits in because you have the right lead because your modem is cable not ADSL

hope this hepls

HI Barry
You need something called an ethernet cable. One end of the cable goes in the router and the other end goes in the ethernet poet of the computer.

This is an ethernet cable

This is the network port (ethernet) of the PC

Ethernet cable does not fit into computer


You might be trying to plug the ethernet cable into the modem. This is smaller than the ethernet connectionbut looks the same. If there is no ethernet connection on the computer you might need to have a NIC card install.

It sounds like you may be trying to connect the ethernet cable to the TELEPHONE jack, which is used for a telephone line, and connects to the modem in your PC.

If equiped, the ethernet jack is similar to the phone jack, but it is wider, and will accept the ethernet cable. Please look for this on your PC.
