Q: Solved: Can't find Local Area Connection Driver

Hello,
I decided to connect my PC to the router VIA Ethernet cable because I got this really long ethernet cable and the router is pretty far so the signal is weak and I want to fix that, so It used to work before until I formatted my PC, now when I go into the internet drivers I do not see any Local Area Connection driver that I can enable, so help please?

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.)

(HELP!)

My laptop apparently is connected to the internet (Wi-fi) but it won't connect to any site. This happenned after I tried to install (again) an wi-fi device called TP-LINK TlWN722N. I couldn't make it work so I deleted its files from my computer, and then I could not get into any site.
When I try to repair the diagnoses are:
"There might be a problem with the driver for the Local Area Connection (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)"
I use a Windows 8 x64.
I can upload images if you want, I just didn't because I really tried some things and none of them worked '-'.
Uploaded the MiniToolBox result. Some words are in portuguese, if you need any help in translating just say though I believe you will be able to understand most of it.
(Forgive me for my terrible English, it is not my first language >.<)

Hello

I Installed newest Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit for my brother. After tweaking and optimizing we found out a problem. Windows 7 can't find local area connection. The internet connection still works, but for example my computer finds local area connection normally.

OK
whats the wifi/NIC card on the machine. Have you installed a deiver? go into device manager by typing device manager in search and go to the network tab. expand it aand your wired, and wireliss devices should be there. If they arent or if either have a yellow triangle on them you need to re-install the driver.

Let us know the results

Hi, I just installed windows xp professional version 2002 (corporate) sp2 on my computer.
My problem is that i can't get the internet to work. its worked on the same computer before. I go to my network places and the only connection i have is 1394 connection, when i try to repair this it says; windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed; Failed to query TCP/IP settings of the connection. cannot proceed. And i cant find the local area connection. Ive been googleing around and it seems that i have to install the TCP/IP protocol, but when i try this it says that i don't have the drivers for it. If this is the problem, that i haven't installed the wright drivers, how do i do that and where do i get them? If not, what do i do?

You said you uninstalled the drivers for your NIC, did you reinstall them, preferably the latest version of them ?? That should trigger a refresh of your IP stack in the event it's glitched.

Hiya, I saw another thread with this title, but it wasn't much help.

I've had my Compaq PC with Windows 7 home for about 6 months, and I last connected to the internet through my Ethernet with no problems, as always, four days ago.

I made no changes then, or since, but now when I try to connect I get the above error message. I've checked the network driver and it says it's up to date.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hello, my laptop works fine with a wireless connection, but now that my wireless router does not work i resort to connecting with a wired connection.

When i'm in the Network connections window, it says that the Local area connection is enabled (RealTek PCIe GBE Family Controller)

However, i'm still not connected to the internet. When i diagnose the LAC it says There might be a problem with the driver for the Local Area Connection adapter.

I have tried ipconfig /all, it shows media disconnected for everything.

I have also tried putting the installation disc that came with the laptop, went to drivers, Realtek, setup, but still does not work.

Anyone know the problem? Thanks for your time.

Very normal, anytime you install a network card, ethernet or wireless. It will name the connection 2, 3, 4 and so on. So you should have just a local area connection also. Itys normal.

Download the latest chipset and networking drivers from Dell's web site. Use your Service Tag for easier searching. Copy them to the crippled PC using removable media such as CD, USB flash drive, etc. Install the chipset first, then networking. You should then have internet access and can get whatever other drivers you need.

Go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In the Device Manager do you see a yellow mark next to Network Adapters? If so then you must download the driver from your computer manufacturers support web site.
If There is no yellow mark and no other Network Adapters other then the 1394, then you need to go into the Bios and make sure the Ethernet/Network Adapter is Enabled. If you can't find that or it is enabled, then the hardware failed and you need to install a PCI NIC card.

There's an icon of two computers in my system tray, and when I cursor over it it says Local Area Connection - Speed 100.0 Mbps - Status: Connected.

It's just this one computer in my household, and the only things it's connected to are the printer, and the box from the cable company (the hub?).

Not sure how long this icon has been there - could be since I hooked up to cable. Would like to know for sure if that's what it's connected to.

Can one tell me how to get this one icon back "local area connection" --- I've gone to the taskbar properties / notification area nd made sure the check mark is in network.
My problem is not seeing any icons, but this icon has gone missing & I think (not right sure) I clicked *exit* --- but all works ok with connections.
I've one icon that says *currently connected to* when I hold the mouse over it, but this other icon is missing and I cannot see how to restore it.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A:[SOLVED] local area connection icon missing

Did you pick hide inactive icons? It's possible the icon is hidden because nothing ever happens to it.
Right click your taskbar, and choose properties. Go to the notification area tab. Then either uncheck the box, or click on customize, and set it so that particular icon is not hidden.

Hello,

I had to do a complete XP Media edition reinstall and now my computer will not connect to the internet. In the control panel, under network connections, there is no longer even an icon for local area connection. What have I done? Is there a driver I need to reinstall or have I damaged something permanently?

I have a Surewest fibre optic connection and it is working perfectly with my laptop.

Thanks for any help on this matter.

My computer crashed. I bought a new Western Digital Caviar SE 160 GB hard drive. I installed my Microsoft Windows Home Edition 2002 cd onto the new drive but I cannot get a "local area connection" to install.

When I "add a new connection" it installs a LAN 1384 connection. I tried looking on the cd to install it but could find nothing.

How can I get the LAC installed from the cd or from a website that I can download from work onto my jumpdrive? Thanks!

BTW, I have uninstalled and installed again but no success.

Hi guys, I am new here, enjoing the forum, well about the problem...
I have 2 questions, but I will ask all of them because maybe they are connected somehow.

1). My local area connection in Network Connections sometimes just disappears, but it is not because of drivers, I have reinstalled them (I am using windows 7 btw). So the local
area connection sometimes just disappears for 2 days, and there is no sign of it even in device manager.

2). My laptop nic lights are on (yellow and green), whether cable is plugged or not, but I have internet.

- And just for information - I am using TP-LINK TL-WR841N (WI-FI is just awesome)
-It's funny but my icon is here again, in device manager too. But what to do with it? It disappears whenever it wants.
 

Relevancy 83.42%

My LAC now takes 2 minutes to come on after I boot up the PC.

I've downloaded the latest driver for the NIC, no difference.

When I boot in Safe Mode with Networking the connection comes on as quick as normal?

I've checked, their are no programs coming on at start up other than my antivirus. Tried with the antivirus off, no difference

This 'may' have happened after a windows update, but I'm not sure about that.

Any suggestions Please?

Hey guys, you know how you can go into the Control Panel, Network Connections, right-click on "Local Area Connection" and set it to disabled, is there a way to do that on a remote PC without taking remote-control of it?

Using a remote control program like VNC, etc. isn't an option. Needs to be done via command console or some other third party software that has that kind of control.

Or if there's a way to remotely disable the NIC from device manager would be another option.

Any help would be much appreciated.
 

A:Solved: Remotely disable Local Area Connection

if the remote computer is on the same network as you, and you have administrative rights to that computer you can....

right click "My Computer" from your computer then choose manage, then make sure Computer Management (local) is highlighted then choose Action then "connect to another computer" select the computer then highlight Device Manager and disable the NIC from there.

A:[SOLVED] My local area connection says limited or no connectivity

You say it works when you reboot your router but goes back.

Is this instantaneously or over time, say a week.

What is the make and model of your Router?
Do you have more than one PC connected? If you have more than one, do the others have the same problem?

Can you do an ipconfig /all and post the results?

A:Solved: Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration - Windows 7

you are doing actually doing two different things as far as i can make - is this correct

Move Powerline from an extension lead and it works - This is because some powerline adapters will not work on an extension lead - so thats (1) and

(2) moving the router is reducing the wireless signal

so you need to find a way to keep the router where it is and not use an extension lead- maybe a longer ethernet cable

from the wireless pcs can we see an xirrus screen shot - when its working OK and again when it is not - just in case its interference

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.

Direct link to the program is here http://info.xirrus.com/Wi-FiInspectorConfirmation.html

{If the above link does not work heres another link http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_download/fid,77196-order,4/download.html}

Then run and install the program - on a wireless enabled PC/Laptop
if you get an error - You need will need to haveNET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

Run the program

A user guide is available here http://www.xirrus.com/cdn/pdf/Xirrus-Wi-Fi-inspectorguide-1-2-1-RevB-6.aspx

post a screen shot of the program running.
if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information.

post which SSID name is yours, its located in the list, under network "Adapter Name" (1st column)

To post a screen shot of the active window.
1) hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application (Start> All Programs> Accessories> Paint) and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.
OR
2) if you are using Vista/Windows 7 you can use the "snipping tool" which is found in Start> All programs> Accessories> Snipping Tool

Note:
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better. "A desirable signal level for a robust Wi-Fi connection will be green".
note: the signal level is a negative number, so for example -88 is worst and -40 is better

If you are using the Mac OS then use http://www.istumbler.net/ or
if you want to optimise base station position and signal strength / dead spots use

Hi,
I have recently reinstalled XP pro on a PC and do not have internet connection using Internet Explorer or Firefox, I cannot ping either of my other two computers.
I have installed the Mother Board Drivers.

Device managed tells me that both network adapters are working properly, Local Area Connection tells me that I am connected although send/receive packets are about 1 (send) and 20 (receive) after an hour of being told there is a connection.

I multi boot with Windows 7 and a Linux system and they both have internet connection so it seems to be restricted to XP.

Any suggestions on what may be wrong would be appreciated.

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 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 ?

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.

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?

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.

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.

A:Local area connection

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

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.

It might be missing from your taskbar. To see if this is the issue, right click your taskbar, and click properties, then click on Customize under the notification area section of the Taskbar tab. Make sure the "Network" icon has the behavior set to show icon and notifications.

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 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.

Let me tell you a bit about my set-up. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate and my internet connection is via a Bt homehub.
My problem is every time I start up my PC I don't have internet connection.
The only way to get it is to go to local area connection and disable it, then go back in and enable it and then I have internet access.
I have taken screen shoots of whats happening.
Not sure if the file has uploaded so sorry if you don't see it. New to this site so having to get used to it.

Can any one see the word file I attached as I can't.

A:Local Area Connection

Assuming that's a wired and not wifi connection.

Before you boot, disconnect from the BT and let the system present the desktop, then
connection to the BT, wait 30sec and you should have a connection.

Your Firewall should be left active

Like to see the View Connections, but copy the text from this and past into your follow-up:
start->Run->enter IPCONFIG /ALL

Hi Guys,
I am having a problem with my network connection on an XP PC. 3 times already today, the Local Area Connection in The Networks folder in Control Panel has disabled itself.

I simply re-enable it and everything is fine.

Any ideas on why this happens ???

Disable the XP SP2 firewall and monitor this...
