Local area connection 2 unplugged

Q: Local area connection 2 unplugged

I have Vodafone Prepay Broadband so I do not have to plug in any cables. However, recently my internet will not connect properly. The Vodem connects properly but I do not get fully connected as the two pcs with a globe do not appear on my toolbar and no pages will load. When I "Diagnose and Repair" is when I get the message telling me that Local Area Connection 2 is unplugged. I do not understand this as I should not have to plug in anything but the Vodem.

Preferred Solution: Local area connection 2 unplugged

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello everyone, I hope this is where i am supposed to post this...

I work from home on a computer that is directly connected to our satelite internet and from that point there is a D-Link wbr 2310 wireless router connected to my computer in order for us to run our second computer in the other room.
I most often will get a bubble that comes up on my computer that states "local area connection unplugged". This happens when the other computer is on OR off. Could this be caused from the wireless router? When i am working i also use a VOIP program that i log into. This does not happen every time but on some days it will happen 2-3 times. The disconnection is not for very long but it will kick me out of my VOIP program and make me reconnect.

Can someone please help with this??
 

A:Local area connection unplugged

Is it possible to run a day without the router....just for process of elimination? I'm not familiar with satellite myself, so I probably won't be a lot of help, but eliminating things one at a time is usually a help.

I recently received a new modem today from an RCN guy, and its been working great. However, every so often, a bubble would pop up saying my local area connection is unplugged for about a split second. Any ideas on how to stop this?
 

A:Local Area Connection Unplugged

Is it a modem or a router?

Either way, it could be an issue with the device itself (a firmware update may fix that), the cable (try another cable), your network card being bad (try another one), or some software issue.

A:Local area connection unplugged

Hi Stacey and welcome to the TS Forum, yes your post is ok and in the right place..


The message you are getting is caused by windows saying that an active network connection has no cable plugged into it.

The cause may be because you have more than 1 ethernet connection such as a wired Ethernet socket, a Wireless ethernet connection, and lastly a USB ethernet connection.

You dont say which you are using at present, but if you click

START > SETTINGS > CONTROL PANEL >NETWORK CONNECTIONS.

You will see a list of available network connections, one will show "network cable unplugged, or there may be more than one, again dependant on what the system has.

On the one showing cable unplugged, right click it and choose "Disable", this will tell the OS to stop looking at it.

WARNING......

This message can also appear if the active internet connection has a faulty cable or the input socket is faulty, disabling the interface may cause you to lose internet connection if this happens you need to check the cable that plugs into the socket for loose wires and replace if needed.

Everytime I'm on my laptop, every 5 minutes it has to say a network cable is unplugged which causes my wireless connection to go off as well as my internet.
I don't why i can't just go on the internet just using wireless without the damn local area connection.
Any suggestions which help a lot. Thanks!

I am using a cable modem, but my system tray shows the icon for:

Local Area Connection
A network cable is unplugged.

What can I do to eliminate this pesky warning symbol?

Thanks,
 

A:Local Area Connection - cable unplugged

Are you actually making a connection? I'm guessing you're using a USB cable instead of the network cable to your NIC card.
Anyway, to stop the systray showing the icon, Right Click on My Network Places and choose properties, right click on the broken connection and choose properties again, then make sure that the checkbox next to "notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity" is unchecked.

Hi guys

I have had this problem for about One year now where my Local Area Connection disconnects randomly and i receive a little pop up saying "Local Area Connection Unplugged". The dissconection only lasts one or two second then my internet is back and also it only happens once or twice every hour or sometimes does not happen for 5 hours or even a whole day. My router is D-link. Do you guys think that this problem has something to do with the router or could it be my computer or both?
 

A:Local Area Connection Unplugged Blinking.

It could be bad network cable, bad network interface or just your ethernet chip and the router's ethernet chip not liking each other.

First, try setting the link speed and duplex manually to 100Mbit full duplex in your network card properties. Ethernet speed autonegotiation is not perfect and often breaks. If that doesn't help, replace your network cable.

I know there are many threads about this issue. There have been no answers that have been helpful.

OS: Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on Laptop and PC (custom build).
Router: ASUS RT-N56U
Switch: D Link DES 1008e
Network Adapter PC: Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller
Network Adapter Laptop: Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller


When either is plugged directly into the router, no ethernet cable is detected. If you run either the PC or laptop through the switch first, it works just fine.

I have uninstalled and re-installed network drivers, I've unistalled and deleted the adapters and software and started from scratch. I've checked all of the setting 3 times over. I just can't seem to figure it out.

Am I missing something very simple here?

A:Local Area Connection [A network cable is unplugged]

Are using a laptop or desktop, if your on a laptop will say that because your not plugged in the LAN on your laptop which you do not need if it is wireless, but if it is your desktop and you are connect to your router it could be that the NIC card is at fault go into device manager to see if there is any problems with NIC card.

1.Also check your network cables make sure they are in secure.

2. Make sure your network adapter is up to date and working.

greetings from South Africa,
I am very new to forums and do not know the correct protocol.
So be gentle with me?
I have a KM4AM Motherboard and the drivers etc.
I bought and installed two LG super multi DVD drives.
When connecting it up I noticed that there was a cable connected to the old secondart CD dive and appeared to go to the motherboard??
I do not know if I unplugged it - however I get the title of my thread when I boot up.
It says 'new found hardware' - Parrallel device'

Any suggestions please
 

A:Local area connection. A network cable is unplugged

The "Parallel" device is the port driver for your LG DVD drives. You have 2 parallel ports on the motherboard. The blue port is for IDE hard drives. The white port is for your IDE (parallel) DVD drives. How are you connecting to the Internet? The "Local area connection. A network cable is unplugged" message indicates that there is no network cable connected to the motherboards network port. Your Cable or DSL modem attaches to this port

I have an issue with a Dell Dimension 8300 system. It has an Intel pro 100/ve network adapter.

This week i lost connection to the internet, either from the DSL modem or the router. Connections work fine on a Sony and IBM systems.

I can ping the router or the modem when connected, and I can get into their config windows, but no internet.

A strange thing, is that when i unplug the network cable from the PC, the Local Area connection keeps connected (as if the cable was still plugged). Now when I reboot the PC with the LAN cable unplugged, the Local Area Connection icon shows the message of "acquiring network address" and then ends up with "limited connectivity"... but there is no cable plugged.

I look all over the web for a solution or similar issue, i tried resetting all possible parameters.

Can someone help?
thanks,

Well, the problem is that I am using a laptop that uses a wireless connection to connect to the internet. It was working fine, but one day it stopped working.

The main difference I noticed was that when I look at the network connections, the wireless part is working, for it describes as having an excellent connection. However, the local area connection says there is a network cable unplugged. I do not use a wired connection though.

I have tried many steps such as a simple restart, re-installing the wireless adapter, and trying to reset the ip address since I noticed that it was 169.254.XXXX.

However, every time I tried to reset the ip address, I run into the problem that it cannot do so because a network cable is unplugged.

Thanks for any help given.

A:Local area connection, Network cable unplugged

A system which has a wired connection which is not being used (but has drivers installed) might reflect the network cable unplugged message.

The simplest solution for any device which is not being used and which is onboard...is to enter the BIOS/Setup and disable the device.

Louis

I don't do wireless...but the 169.254.XXXX normally indicates a networking setup that has gone awry. DHCP is supposed to provide an IP similar to 192.168.0.001 where it employed.

I suggest setting up the wireless connection anew.

OK. Here is my problem. I had a power surge which killed my windows XP install, so based on advice received here, I was able to re-install XP and was good to go for a week or so. Suddenly, I keep getting messages which read LOCAL ARE CONNECTION 3- A NETWORK CABLE IS UPLUGGED. There is a red x which appears and I am unable to connect to the internet. I contacted VERIZON FIOS and they walked me through a series of steps, but it doesnt work.
I changed the cable and I ran a new cable directly to the tower, and bypassed the router.
What do I need to do> Any suggestions>? I have a 3Com Gigabit LOM (3c940) whatever that is and I dont know how to maintain NETWORK CONNECTIONS.

So, I used to be kicked off the net, and now I cant even get ON the net....

A:Local Area Connection: A Network Cable is Unplugged

First, be sure to update the firmware in the router, the NIC drivers for your wired connectons, and the wireless WiFi driver.

Brand names and model numbers for all network devices may help here.

I've seen cases where this symptom occurred due to the speed of the connection
and as you have just upgraded your network capacity, this may apply to you.

Broadcom 10/100/1000 adapters (and likely any gigabit adapter) set at 1000 flood the simple router and cause it to drop connections.

First try setting 100mb, full duplex and if it is stable stop here

Next try setting 100mb, half duplex and then move to

10mb half duplex.





And why does the problem NEVER occur (not even once) when I am downloading files to my desktop? And why do I get errors on BOTH machines when I am attempting to download large files to the wireless machine only?

A friend?who is hardly an expert, but who is somewhat in the know?seems to think that the problem lies not within the network card but with the ethernet cable itself..Click to expand...

If the wired desktop can run fine, the the cabling is not in question.
The download via the wireless will run much slower than the wired connection
and cause the router to back off -- the speed capacity up to the router is far
greater than the wifi and the problem is in the speed mismatch.

On my Netgear router, I can set the MTU size on the WAN Setup page.
You should have something <= 1500. Personally I use 1492.

A:Local Area Connection - Network Cable Unplugged

the first thing i would do is to check that the wireless switch is on. most laptops a have a switch at the side or front. or you might have a key in your keyboard saying fn if it does have click the fn + the wireless sign which will be somewhere there. for example on mine one it is fn + f2. click on start then right click on mycomputer then go to hardware and then device manager. check for any yellow signs if there is you need to download the driver for it.

A:Local area connection network cable unplugged question

Welcome,

Your laptop has the ability to use either a wireless connection or a wired connection. Typically not both at the same time.

You should disable the wired adapter to not see the cable unplugged indication.

Right click on the network icon in the notification area and select Open network and sharing center.

Then select change adapter settings on the upper left side of the window.

Right click on the Ethernet adapter (Local area connection) and select disable.

Hi, my sister just got a pc for christmas, and is using a wireless connection, around the time this was installed I started getting an error message periodically saying "local area connection unplugged" it happens roughly every 2 minutes and only lasts for 1-4 seconds, how ever it is causing me great problems when playing a online game, or downloading something (amoungst other minor annoyances.). The problem only persists whilst I and my sister are using both our computers simaltaniosly. I am not using wireless, and my router is currently feeding my pc, my fathers both via ethernet cables, and my sisters via wireless. If anyone can please help me to solve this problem, it would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Netgear wgr614 router that is acting strangely. The error message I receive in the sys tray what is in the title of the thread. When the message appears, all 4 port lights are lit up on the router and access to the internet is interupted for a few seconds. This was happening more and more. I have checked the cables etc.
I followed Microsoft's tech article (see below and changed the speed/duplex properties to Force 10 Half Duplex. The problem is starting to come back but not as fast...maybe a half dozen times in an hour as opposed to constantly. Any suggestions?

A:Local area connection error message...a cable is unplugged

You have that lovely error message (NOT!) Yeah, it's a tough one to diagnose.

Did you make sure that your Windows Firewall is disabled? Are you using Norton or any other Internet security package that might contain a firewall that could be on by default?

BTW, did you just setup the router or did this happen out of the blue?

Please Help me! After running my malware anti-virus and removing all the virus, my Local Area Connection keeps saying network cable unplugged. I checked the network adapters and everything is fine. When I did an ipconfig, there's no ip address showing. I have Windows XP. I've tried almost everything and it's still not working. What could be causing this problem? I've been working on this for days. Any help is greatly appreciated.
 

A:Local Area Connection-Network Cable unplugged - Internet not working after virus

Hi: When you say no ipaddress do you mean it is all zeros or 169.xx ?
If all zeros here are some things to investigate:
IP Addresses all O&#8217;s
IP addresses of all zeros are normally caused by one of the following.

Diagnosis:
1. DHCP Service not running.
2. Duplicate IP address on the network.
3. Bad NIC card drivers.
4. Defective NIC hardware.

Resolution:
1. Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.
2. Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, restart (power cycle) the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.
3. Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.
4. Replace the Network Interface Card.
.
If this is a wireless connection:

There has also been at least one case where switching from using Dell WLAN to XP&#8217;s WZC resolved the issue.

I had Dell over today. They replaced the mother board and I am having the same problem. Wireless works fine. Wire to NIC card says unplugged and enabled (blinking) I can't get it to work.
Dell then told me it may be software and asked me to reload XP... I did that too, a full install... took me all night to get this laptop D600 Latitude back to normal. I am still getting this blinking thing under network connections. Local area connection (status) blinkes Network cable unplugged and enabled. I am using a known good cable. I rebooted modem, computer and did all I can do.
Have any ideas? Wireless works fine but daughter has a weak signal at college and needs direct connect.

Thanks,
Steve
 

A:Local area connection (status) blinkes Network cable unplugged and enabled.

When the motherboard was replaced, was the NIC driver re-installed?

Since its a laptop, is the NIC integrated with the motherboard, or is it a seperate card?

In Windows Device Manager, are there any question marks or exclamation points next to the NIC / Ethernet Adapter?

Since both motherboard and Windows were replaced / re-installed, that takes out a lot of possibilities.

A:Local Area Connection "Network cable unplugged"

and welcome to the Forum

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found, here's how


Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type or copy and paste the following command:

ipconfig/all > 0 & notepad 0

and press enter.

Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB drive, or a CD-R disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

then please Download and run this Xirrus WiFi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.

A:Dell Precision laptop showing message,"Local Area Connection Network cable unplugged"

If you don't have an ethernet cable connected then that message is normal. Since you apparently don't use it you can disable the connection in Network Connections to get rid of the nag.

It's impossible to guess what files might have been modified by the malware, the malware fighter, or the computer guy.

Does your wireless adapter appear under Network Adapter in Device Manager as OK? What, if any, warning or errors are there in Device Manager?

Assuming you are using an integrated wireless adapter is it switched on? Can you detect your network?

Good afternoon.

Last nite I started to log on and my start page came up with "cannot display...." The lower left corner had the 2 screen computer icon blinking saying "local area network is unplugged". I never unplugged anything. I was able to go on the net before. I have had the computer since Jan 04. I am on a cable modem. What is the purpose of this LAN connection? And what do I have to do to surf the web.

Please be descriptive as I am not very knowledgble on this. If I forgot to mention anything, please let me know.

I don't know why I've been recently getting this taskbar icon with Local Area Network "The network cable is unplugged" message, when in fact, the Ethernet cable is plugged all along. It appears for about 1-2 seconds, then disappears. This disconnects my Internet connection for about a couple seconds, and is reconnected instantly.

I have the D-Link Wireless 108G AirPlus XtremeG DI-624 router, with Wireless connection disabled. Currently, there are a total of 2 computers hooked onto this router through Ethernet cables.

Is anyone else having this problem?

I experience many brownouts due to hot weather & neighbors heavy use of air conditioners.
BTW, I have a top-name surge protector: TRIPP LITE SUPER 7

During one of the brownouts, while I was typing, there was a POP!

And then when I booted up again, it took a long time booting, whereupon there's a RED X covering an extra computer icon in far right of taskbar. Now there's 2 computer-icons, one with Red X, and one without.

When I mouse-over the Red X, it states:
Local Area Connection, network cable is unplugged.

But that's not true - nothing is unplugged!

Why does that ridiculous icon keep displaying there? Did something get screwed up?

A:ip renew failure - local area connect unplugged

Are you trying to connect via a wired LAN connection or wirelessly?

The address you are pulling is valid - it is not likely from your router though, as it is a routable INTERNET address, not an INTRANET address. Most routers are configured to use one of the following address schemes for the inside connections
192.168.x.x
172.16.x.x
10.x.x.x
These are not routable through the internet and are safer to use than connecting through a Internet Routable address as they are not visable by anyone on the Internet.

The question is where is it pulling the address from?

XPS 8700, Windows 7, using an Ethernet cable.
The Internet Access icon (in the system tray) will display a red X, then the icon will show spinning, then the icon will appear normal. It takes about 10-seconds for the entire process to occur.
During this time, connectivity to the Internet is lost. I'm using an Ethernet cable to connect.
Typically, it occurs when I'm asking for lots of data rapidly (e.g., flipping through online photos quickly or streaming a large video).
It always fixes itself. But, it's disruptive to my surfing... and annoying.
How might I fix this? Thanks.

In that computer management window (while Device Manager is selected in the left pane), select View from the menu bar. Then uncheck View hidden devices. Do you see any Network adapters now?

Ok so I've looked around this forum and other forums for how to get back the Local area connection and i get stuck. In the Network Connections, I only have "1394 Net Adapter" and no Local Area Connection. What's going on. They say make sure in the device manager it is not disabled. But I only have the 1394 Net Adapter driver in the Network Adapters. Where is my local area connections driver ? Its not there !

I have a clear modem (CPEi 25150) and a D-Link wireless router (DIR-601) and they are connected and set up. It all worked fine before I reset my PC back to factory settings and wiped out everything, but now this happens and I can't get on the Internet. Help ?
 

A:Local Area Connection missing and no Internet Connection.

Hello,

Have you tried going to "Add hardware" in control panel?

Start -> Control Panel -> Add Hardware -> Click next, and it should detect the network adapter is connected to your computer but hasn't been installed and it should install it for you.

Post back here with results aswell

I have used boot amp nuke to wipe clean an older XP desktop Then I used the XP installation disk to get going to the basic installation that enables the computer to function The plan is to get the network card working and then use updates and auto-detect to configure the remaining drivers I have done this with some success on a couple of other older XP machines previously I opened the case and worked out that the board is an Intel D PERL By going to the Intel website on another machine I have downloaded the network card drivers copied it to a USB stick and then transferred the drivers to the machine being re-built They all appear to have installed correctly - when I go to device manager it says that the quot Intel R PRO CT Network Connection quot is working properly When I go to Network Connections it says that the Local Area Connection is enabled But in the details pane it reports the following IP Address Subnet Mask Assigned by DHCP I have cross referenced the network configuration against another but address and IP Local enabled Area connection no no Connection XP machine and confirmed that the TCP IP properties are configured to obtain IP address automatically etc ipconfig all in the command prompt reports the following Windows IP Configuration Host Name stratus Primary Dns Suffix Node Type Broadcast IP Routing Enabled No WINS Proxy Enabled No Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection Connection-specific DNS Suffix Description Intel R PRO CT Network Connection Physical Address - C-F - - B- Dhcp Enabled Yes Autoconfiguration Enabled Yes IP Address Subnet Mask Default Gateway DHCP Server Clearly I cannot get any connection to the internet I do not believe I would need to do any configuration of the home network itself because Local Area Connection enabled but no IP address and no connection it is Local Area Connection enabled but no IP address and no connection configured to be as vanilla Local Area Connection enabled but no IP address and no connection as possible too And the other computers connect to it fine Is there a step I am missing Have I installed the drivers incorrectly Any assistance much appreciated nbsp

A:Local Area Connection enabled but no IP address and no connection

IP addresses of all zeros are normally caused by one of the following.

Diagnosis:
DHCP Service not running.
Duplicate IP address on the network.
Bad NIC card drivers.
Defective NIC hardware.

Resolution:
Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.

Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, restart (power cycle) the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.

Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.

Replace the Network Interface Card.

I was just wondering what the 1394 Connection icon was next to my Local Area Connection 2 icon in the Network Connections folder on Windows XP. Could I somehow connect thru that? Also it is enable and says I am connected however there is 0 packets being sent and received? Should I disable this or does it matter?
 

A:What is the 1394 Connection icon next to my Local Area Connection 2?

You can disable it if you want. This is for your Firewire port on your PC/Laptop you can use this to interconnect between 2 firewire controllers that support this function. Its just another form of computer connecting like Ethernet, and wireless. and USB. and COM port.

New to the forums, try to bear with me please...
I upgraded from windows xp home edition to XP pro x64 today. Upon finishing the install I was unable to connect to the internet. This brought me to discover I have no local area connection under my Network Connections, just the 1394 connection. I have tried adding a new connection, and installing motherboard drivers from the cd. The mother board is a nForce 680i SLI socket 775. I'm kinda coming to a loss here, but am left to believe maybe it has something to do with the x64... I had checked the device manager as well, and the only network adapter present lists as the 1394...

A:No Local Area Connection

You'll need to get a x64 driver for your Network Connection adapter

My desktop computer has been unable to connect to the internet. It is wired, but there is no icon in the network connections window. The cable works on other computers, just not this one. In device manager there is no network adapter for it. Also, there is a code 12 error with COM1. When i enter the ipconfig /all command the only thing that shows is "Windows IP Configuration". Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

A:No Local Area Connection

If there's no network adapter showing in Device Manager then the adapter is most likely faulty and will have to be replaced with a new one (ie a new network card which fits into a PCI or PCI-Express slot depending on whichever type of slot your PC has).

The code 12 error on COM1 is a separate issue:

Code 12
This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system. (Code 12)
Cause

This error can occur if two devices that are installed on your computer have been assigned the same I/O ports, the same interrupt, or the same Direct Memory Access channel (either by the BIOS, the operating system, or both). This error message can also appear if the BIOS did not allocate enough resources to the device.

Recommended resolution

You can use the Troubleshooting Wizard in Device Manager to determine where the conflict is, and then disable the conflicting device.

Disable the conflicting device

1. On the device Properties dialog box, click the General tab.
2. Click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard. The wizard asks you some simple questions and provides a solution to your problem based on the answers that you provide.
3. Follow the resolution steps provided by the wizard to resolve the problem.

I have set Local Area Connection as first choice, Wireless Network Connection as second. In the tray icon,it is finding for the connection, it took almost 2 min.or so to find the LAN connection.  I have set the metric of LAN to 10 and wireless connection to 12 and also disable wireless connection. I would like it to start directly to local area connection at start up instead of searching for others before to local area connection. My OS. Windows 7 ultimate.
         Thanking you.

A:Local Area Connection

I have set the metric of LAN to 10 and wireless connection to 12 and also disable wireless connection.
Metric?  Mind explaining what that is?  As far as I know, you don't have to set anything.  Given a choice between a wired and wireless connection, Windows will always connect to the wired first by default.  Also, once your ethernet cable is always plugged in, Windows shouldn't have to "search" for other connections before "finding" the LAN connection.  If that is happening to you, something is definitely wrong.

My damn computer (as i'm typing) says in a pop up in the lower right corner Local Area Connection - "A network cable unplugged" for a sec and goes away and it's slowing down my computer ! Whats the cause of this?
 

A:Local Area Connection

A few things can cause this. They include:
Poor connection between your NIC and the cable.
Poor connection between the cable and the hub/router/switch/modem.
Faulty cable.
Faulty NIC.
Faulty hub/router/switch/modem.

My suggestion is to make sure its properly pushed in on both ends, and if it continues get another cable.

Vista has caused many of my clients computers problems when it came down to drivers (especially networking).

The best cause of action is to download the correct vista driver pack for your current addapter and put it on a cd or usb stick. Then remove the network addapter using device manager and restart your computer - when it asks for driver location on restart just press cancel. Then run the relevant driver pack you previously download and hopefully this will sort out your problem.

Look in the Device manager.Does any network component have a yellow symbol next to to it ?

More information is required. Are you connecting to the internet wired or wirelessly? If wirelessly. it is just telling you that you do not have a network cable plugged in, which you know, as you are connected wirelessly. If you are connected wired, try replacing the Ethernet Cable, try a different port on the router. Go to your computer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in your service tag# or your make and model # and download the network adapter driver for your computer.

A:local area connection

Well, from the description, you appear to have phone wiring issues, or you're missing a filter someplace in the house. A defective filter could also cause this.

Disconnect ALL the phone equipment of any kind and connect the modem. Make sure it's working normally. Then, connect one phone (with filter) at a time until it stops. Try a new filter first to see if it's just a defective filter at that point.

If all else fails, this is my fix for poor interior wiring.

Purchase a DSL splitter and install it at the telco service entrance. Run a direct line from the DSL port on the splitter directly to the DSL modem. Connect all of the other phone instruments to the telephone output of the DSL splitter. All of the DSL analog side wiring should be CAT3 or better twisted pair from the telco service entrance to the DSL/ADSL modem. You can use one of the twisted pairs in CAT5 cable if you have that on hand.

This is as good as it gets for DSL installations, and will usually solve in-house wiring issues.

Here's a good detailed description of the process: DSL Wiring Upgrade Tutorial

If you can't see the LAN connection listed under Network Connections, your friend probably uninstalled the driver.

All - I am embarrased to post this but I am getting desperate. I upgraded a friend's computer from Win98 to Win 2000. After completing this successfully, I tried to setup their internet connection (cable modem with a wireless router, though this computer is ethernet connected to the router). Unfortunately, the computer cannot see the cable modem even though their ISP can ping the router and modem. Windows 2000 did not 'plug-n-play' the modem or router for some reason.
So, I tried to add a network connection but the computer did not see the modem or router. In the Network Connections folder, there was no 'Local Area Connection', only 'Add New Connection'. What gives? Do I have to add my network adapter too? Thanks for your help.

Have you tried another Ethernet cable, maybe the one you have is bad, what do you connect to, is it a router or modem and who is your ISP ?

I just installed a new XP Home on my Dell laptop.

My main destop in connected to the internet via Cox. However, I can't connect to the internet on my laptop. I have run a cable from my desktop to another room and connected to a D-Link. I used a DP-G310 by D-Link. But know it does not light up. Does this mean the D-Link is broke and should be replaced.

I get the message "A network cable is unplugged."

How do I correct this? Thanks.

Hi bfburton99


You may have connected to the wrong networking device. The DLink DP-G310 is a print server, and not a router (of course, you plug printers into print servers). Here's a link to information about the DP-G310 --- http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=DP-G310&tab=3 ---

It's also possible that perhaps you just copied the wrong numbers.

Cox will have provided you with a cable 'modem' at the least, or with one of the newer "residential gateway" devices (these combine the duties of a cable 'modem' and a router in one box). You'll want to connect your Cat5/Cat53/Cat6 ethernet cable from your PC to a "LAN" port on either your residential gateway (if you have one), your router (if you have one), or directly to the cable 'modem'.

Once connected to an active port, you should be able to access the Internet using your favorite browser. Make sure you have a firewall active & an antivirus program installed before connecting.

Best of luck

Hi ^^

I download a lot of anime, music and stuff like that. In the process, I downloaded a couple trojans. I ran a program called Trojan Hunter and it cleared them out. Unfortunately, it also cleared out whatever it is that connects me to the internet.

I figured I would just reformat and call it good. So I saved all my work and went on with it. Once I got all the drivers installed and the programs I need back on, I tried to connect to the internet. No dice. I'm not sure what happened or what I need to do to get back online. I tried the "ipconfig /all" in the cmd, but I get:

"Windows IP Configuration"

And that's it. I tried switching cables with the laptop, reset the router and modem, and still nothing. Any ideas as to what I might be forgetting?

Thanks for your help ^^;

When i am on the internet sometimes the connection will give out and the only way to get back on the internet is to reset the Local Area Connection, its getting really annoying like once every hour, how can i fix this?
 

A:Local Area Connection

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?


On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:

PING 206.190.60.37

PING yahoo.com

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Is there a reason this was created on the dell desktop that I recently installed a new windows xp on? I have a wireless connection, local are connection 1 and 2, i can disable one but I can't disable 2, and I don't even know what 2 is FOR. However 1 has in it's description "Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection" and 2 has "Microsoft TV/Video Connection"

A:Local Area Connection 2

It installs when you have a webcam or TV card nothing to worry about.

G'dday folks, long time no see, hope you are all well.
Been doing some stupid things with XP and now my wireless connection is not active.
Right click on the Icon brings up the box that shows "Status" "Repair" "Delete" as Greyed out and inopperative. How can I enable them to allow a repair and connection?
PCMI card when plugged in does not light up (Dynamode WL-GI-300B)
Got a few more probs with XP in general but will pop those questions up when I can get online with the machine.
Many thanks as usual.

I shut down my computer a few days ago and when I restart it does not connect. I get the following statement, " Local area connnection unpluged via Rhine II Fast Ethernet. However I also get "1394 Connection Connected.
Thus I am able to use my laptop. Any suggestions?

Thanks
 

A:Local Area Connection

sounds as if the 1394 adapter (used for Firewire) got bridged to your LAN adapter.

checkout the properties of both in View Network Connections.

What do you see in the network connections folder? There is a good connection to your wired network.

I have Windows XP on my computer. On the control panel when I click Network Connections/Local Area Connection I see that my Local Area Connection is disabled. When would I click Enable and when would I click disable as to my Local Area connection? Thank you very much. Murrar

A:Local Area Connection

You only need the LAN conn if your not using your Broadband conn or if on the move and in a wifi hotspot.
