Local area connection problem - can't find it

Q: Local area connection problem - can't find it

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.

About the problem:

In first pic it says that dependency service or group failed to start so is this the problem or what? What services need to run?

Need help to solve this problem, thanks.

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?

Please help me

Hello, I am running the Windows XP operating system.

My internet connection has gotten unbelievably slower in the past couple of days and i noticed that when i check under network connections and check the status of my Local Area Connection the numbers for my sent and received packets are much, much, higher than they ever were before. It seemed to me like they never used to surpass 3 digits but now they are frequently in the tens of thousands, with the number of received packets disproportionately higher than the number of sent packets. My computer is connected to a router and there are two others computers on this network. Does anyone recognize any potential problem from the symptons?

I also tried doing system restore from about 10 different restore points and got a "restoration incomplete" message every time. But that's a problem for a different board.

Thanks,
Jon.

I have a simple set up: cable modem going into router and then out wirelessly to laptop and corded to desktop. I have recently been having troubles of keeping the connection on my desktop. The laptop works perfect! But after a couple hours of use on the desktop, the connection will go south; limited or no connectivity. i tried repairing the connection and i get a message saying that "renewing your IP address" couldn't be completed and that's the end of that. If i restart the computer the connection will work for a little bit again and then it the problem comes back. Thanks for any assistance

I recently tried to install PCSync onto my new XP system and the cable adapter drivers won't install, so now whenever I reboot the OS asks me if I want to install the drivers from disc or search the internet for them neither which work.

I just want to uninstall the network connection for the cable. It's a LAN connection for a serial cable for Laplink (parent company) but when I delete the connection I can no longer connect to the internet for some reason.

Could you be of some assistance in this matter?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I just changed Internet providers and I now have to use the local area icon to disconnect. Well even when I am online it has the red X on the icon and says A Network Cable is Unplugged. How do I get this fixed????I am running XP.
 

A:Problem W/ Local Area Connection

I guess the cable is connected
Well.. Check the IP Settings and make sure you follow the instructions you've got from you isp. I suppose they use a DHCP Server and suggest you check that your computer don't use a static address.

To check IP Settings:
rightclick My Network Places and choose Properties.
rightclick Local Area Connection and choose Properties.
click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then click Properties.
then choose Obtain IP Address Automatically and click OK.
click OK again.

After that,
click Start/Run.
Enter: CMD and click OK.
Enter (in black box): ipconfig /renew and press Enter.

If you've got a new IP Address then you're up and running.
If you don't get an address, then I guess we have a problem.

Well, if you can connect wireleslly then you don't need to local area connection which is the ethernet port on your laptop. If it bothers you, just disable the ethernet controller in device manager.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 ^^;

-Niko

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

1) Open Device Manager. Do you see the network adapter? Rt click and uninstall
2) Now go to the support site for your computer (e.g. Dell, HP, ASUS, etc) download the network driver and reinstall it

If you have a PCI NIC,here are some possibilities -

Faulty NIC.
Poor connection between your NIC and the cable.
Poor connection between the cable and the hub/router/switch/modem.
Faulty cable.
Faulty hub/router/switch/modem.

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

Try moving the NIC to another PCI slot,then restart the computer.
Windows should reinstall it.

Buy another NIC

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

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.

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.

Before you boot, disconnect from the BT and let the system present the desktop, then

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.

Hello,

I have been trying to figure out why I can't get my computer connected with the internet. I have tried the repair connection, but there is no change. It tells me that it is connected to my DSL modem '100.0mbs', but it is not connecting to the internet.

I checked the netsh interface and it shows:

Admin State Type Interface Name
Enabled Dedicated Local Area Connection
Enabled Dedicated Local Area Connection 3
Enabled Dedicated Local Area Connection

I have another computer connected to the DSL modem and to the internet. I checked the netsh interface and it only has 1 Local Area Connection listed.

Is there something that I am missing or not checking?
 

A:Local Area Connection 3?

Is your DSL modem a modem only or is it a modem/router combo? If the former, you usually need to power cycle the modem when switching computers.

hello, im trying to create a network bridge so i can connect to xbox live using my laptop but there is no local area connection icon or anything. im running a SONY VAIO VPCCA1S1E/G with windows 7 home premium 32 bit, how can i get the icon or something to make it work? help is appreciated :)

A:no local area connection help please!

Hi thefirstandlast, on your windows 7 pc, click on the windows orb/start menu, type in network and sharing center, press enter, then click on "change adapter settings" on the left side. Do you see a "Local Area Connection" there? If so, right click it and make sure it is enabled. You can make sure it is enabled by seeing it has the option to disable.

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.

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.

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.

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"

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

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.

A:Bad Local Area Connection

check your local area connection...

double click my network places icon on your desktop...

click on the "view network connections" on your left...


Open Network Connections.
Under LAN or High-Speed Internet, click the connection that you want to repair, and then, under Network Tasks, click Repair this connection.
If your connection does not work after you click Repair this connection, try the following steps:
Check the status indicator lights on the DSL or cable modem to verify that the connection to your Internet service provider (ISP) is working.
Turn off the DSL or cable modem and, then turn it on again.
If your Internet connection is not working after these steps, contact your ISP.
Click to expand...

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.

Hi All,

I am a relative beginner and I am having a problem that is beyond my ability.

I am using windows XP on my PC, I have got AOL Gold Broadband, I have also had fitted a Linksys Wireless G Card. Which works ok with my daughters Laptop. However it kept showing a message on my PC that "Local Area Connection" is unplugged. After ensuring that my connections were ok, & trying various things my son-in-law fitted a wireless card to my PC. Now I am getting the following error message "Local Area Connection 2" is unplugged. I now cannot get onto AOL Broadband at all. When I try to logon to AOL I am getting the following message "Home DNS Server Unreachable or Unavailable (24-01-08-033).
Can you help? Is it a Software Problem? Hardware Problem or a Virus?

hi, ive got virgin media broadband, but i cannot get it to work properley, the only way i can get online is when i detach my telephone adaptors and attach the computor on its own, have phoned virgin many times, bought new telephone adaptors, and yes ive had the adsl filter in the phone socket first, i get the message local area connection network cable unplugged, my broadband modem is lighting up properley, please can you help a complete novice aged 69 with a very angry wife. thanks
 

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

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 run the wireless and network setup wizards on Windows XP. Before I started this, I did not
see that the 1394 connection was connected. Now it is. Network also shows "Local Area Connection" VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter, connected. Which one should I be using with my wireless router? Should I disable 1394? Will 1394 cause a conflict with internet connection?
 

A:Local Area Connection or 1394 connection?

The IEEE-1394 connection always indicates it's connected. just an oddity of Windows. Ignore that adapter, since it has nothing to do with your Ethernet connection.
