Well, without any other equipment to test with, you're kinda stuck with having someone check out your PC and/or cable modem by plugging them into something else.

The good news is, a PCI ethernet card is very cheap... so if it *is* dead, you could easily buy one yourself, and with a little experience, install it into the computer too!

Otherwise, there is not much you can do without being able to test the cable modem with another computer that has an ethernet port. (a friends laptop perhaps?)

How do i set up my router msi


Is that a standalone router or a modem/router combination ? If it is a standalone router, in order to set up a home network to access the Internet, you need a modem (cable modem or DSL modem) which must be given to you by your Internet provider when you subscribe for Internet service. Your Internet provider has to provide instructions on how to set up your modem. A modem acts as a router too and has a WLAN port and a number of LAN ports (between 1 and 4). The WLAN port is where you hook up your modem to the Internet using an Ethernet cable. One end of the Ethernet cable goes into WLAN port of the modem/router and the other end goes either into a cable outlet (if your Internet provider is a cable company such as Comcast) or a phone jack if your Internet provider is a phone company such as AT&T or Verizon). To connect your desktop computer to the Internet, you plug it in any of the LAN ports on the modem/router. Contact your Internet provider for set up instructions for your specific brand and type of modem.

Hope this helps.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L500 with Win7 and cannot connect to the internet via high speed modem LAN cable. Internet works on my other computer using the same LAN connection, but it is running XP. I


So is your Modem from a phone company like AT&T? It sounds like it is because phone companies use what is called PPOE which is where the modem is configured with a userid and password to get out to the internet.

Cable providers use DHCP and don't require a userid and password.

If your other computer works using the network cable but your toshiba won't work using the same network cable, I think the phone company has configured your modem to only look at and accept your other computer. You can tell the modem to use specific MAC addresses which are unique to every device that attaches to the internet. You want your modem set up to use a range of addresses, not a specific one.

"use a proxy server for your lan (These settings will not apply..


I assume you find this in Tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN. This proxy server setting is only used when you are working through a network at a school or company. You need to have the checkmark next to "automatically detect settings" if you work through most broadband connections like cable or DSL.
Now, if you have the "automatic" checked and the Proxy check appears anyway, this must mean that you have some program that is trying to connect to some network or call home somehow. This could be a virus. Do you have a good AV program? Be careful because many of the websites that say they want to check your system are actually virus downloaders.
