That is a network card that has the abililty to automatically adjust it's speed between the old standard of 10MBps network systems all they way to the current 1000MBps, (1Gigabit LAN) network speed. And RJ45 is just a typ of connector that all network cabling uses. It's kind of a double-wide version of a phone plug.

How do you get the ezbook pc windows embedded CE6.0 to connect to internet via dial up. Have a service, pulgged it up and unable to connect.


Dial up requires a modem instead of a LAN card. It uses an RJ-11 phone plug and not the bigger RJ-45 LAN plug. You also need a dial up internet service provider, and possibly software to make the phone call. There is a Connections setup in Internet Options, under Control Panel if you don't have the software.

So, you are right on track. Just make the call and enter the user name and password to finalize connection.

Have an acer Aspire One netbook and for some reason I cannot connect to the internet even though it is saying that a wifi connection has been established. This has never happened before


If you are connecting on an open WiFi (does not have WEP or WPA enabled), then make sure you are connected to the correct SSID (wireless ID) and not on some other open SSID. If you are on the right SSID, check that you don't have limited connectivity due to low signal strength. If OK, then open Internet Explorer to use its Diagnose Connection Problems tool...
1. click on Tools tab
2. click on Diagnose Connection Problems...
3. click on Next button and follow the steps
If unsuccessful, try powering off the wireless router and the cable/dsl modem for a few minutes and then powering up the modem first followed by the wireless router. Once the netbook has re-established the WiFi connection, repeat the above procedure to Diagnose Connection Problems. Finally, if still unseccessful, connect directly to your wireless router using an ethernet cable from one of the four RJ-45 LAN ports on the router to the netbook's 10/100 ethernet RJ-45 port on its left side. A LAN connection icon should now show in the bottom right of the Desktop's Toolbar. Hovering the mouse cursor over it shows the Local Area Connection pop-up with Speed and Status. If Status is connected, then open Internet Explorer again and use its Diagnose Connection Problems tool to check connectivity to the internet. If still unresolved, the next step would be to log into the router to check its WAN status and depending on the results, you may have to contact your Internet Service Provider.

RJ-45 port fails to securely seat the ethernet jack


These ports are soldered onto the motherboard. They can be changed out by a tech that has the right equipment. I have been able to successfully pull these off at one time using a heat gun set to high for 15 seconds. Then the solder points need to be cleaned thoroughly and the new jack placed into the brass sleeves of the motherboard and each leg soldered into position.

T636400000 does it have an ethernet card built in the unit?


You are probably looking at a RJ-11, used for telephone (dial up - modem). You are trying to put a RJ-45 connector in it.

The RJ-45 should have 8 wires while the RJ-11 may have as many as 6 connectors.

Thank you for your voluntary work with this organization.

Note: If you were to plug a RJ-11 into a RJ-45 port and if it happened that you plugged the other end of the phone cord (RJ-11) into a phone jack --- and the phone were to ring ... you would be pumping 60 volts into your computer. Be very careful with these connections. You would then need butter and jelly for your toast, which is what your computer would be.

Ok - recap: Both look very similar ...

Ethernet = 8 conductors - RJ-45

Telephone = up to 6 wires (may be 2 or 4 also) - RJ-11. NOT interchangable.

So how will you connect? If the laptop is not builltin wireless, you can get a PCMIA card for the slot on the side that will allow wireless or ethernet. Get the card at your computer store. ... Or ... use the built in modem for dialup., You would of course need a dialup account somewhere.

Definition of the sound card, internet lan & wireless lan


The definition of the sound card, is a chipset integrated into the main board of your laptop, in order to provide sound to your built-in speakers, or to the headphone jack on your laptop. Internet LAN (or Local Area Network) is a port located either on the side or the rear of your computer, where you would plug in a Cable/DSL High-Speed Internet connection, using an Ethernet cable (also called RJ-45). Wireless LAN is the same idea, only instead of using an ethernet cable to provide you access to the internet, it uses a wireless signal or radio frequency, to connect to a wireless access point (usually provided by a wireless router in the area). More in-depth information can be found at the following links:
