It certainly sounds like a driver issue. Did your driver installation fix the yellow mark in the Device Manager?

If not, then try the web site of your laptop or network card manufacturer for the latest driver for your operating system.

Assuming you are in windows, then try clicking START & select Run. Type "cmd" into the window.

You will get a black window. Type:

ipconfig /all

If it lists your network adapter then it is installed correctly. If you just get a blank, then you need to work on the driver issue.

Can't connect to internet the internet. My modem is working okay on another pc.Previously I could connect. I'm using GATEWAY NV54 laptop on Windows 7 Home premium

Have you received Windows 7 installed at the time of purchase? If not, check the compatibility with Windows 7. Check your Ethernet adapter with LAN for its proper functioning. Try using latest driver for Ethernet adapter from the laptop manufacturer. If the adapter is OK, restore the system to previous date on which it used to work or reinstall the operating system as a last resort.

Network Adapter Connector does not work.

It is a driver issue... especially if your Device Manager has a question mark, and you recently re-installed windows.

This could be hardware failure as well, but looks a lot more like a simple driver problem. Find the latest driver, install it, restart, you should be good.

Questions about replacing ethernet card on my Dell desktop

Any ethernet card will work fine. Just be sure it's the fit's the correct slot. You probably have a "white" slot which is a pci slot. If it's a longer "black" slot then it's isa. More than likely it came from a pci slot. Before you buy one, confirm the type of slot. In additon, before installing it go to control panel and system settings, hardware, device manager and remove the old one by right clicking it and select delete or remove. Shut down the computer follow instructions for new card.
Probably will have to install the drivers first then shut down and install the new card. Good Luck.

Internet problem

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?)

Adapter issue


Pls reconnect the Ethernet cable back to the other PC and check how is its getting IP address, automatic (Obtain an IP...) or fix (Use the following...). To do this go to your Control Panel, click on Network Connections, right click on Local Area Connection, click on Properties, highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click on Properties button. If it is the latter, note down the numbers.

Plug the Ethernet back to your laptop and do the same. Set your laptop's Internet Protocol Properties to mimic the other computer settings. The only possible difference would be is if the other computer is ticked on "Use the....", the IP address of the laptop should be different from the other PC. Example if the other PC is, make the laptop All others stay the same.

Hope this ne of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
