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.)

Hey Chris (I'm assuming your name is Chris from the IP settings...),

Let me be the first to welcome you to Vista X64 forums.

It looks like your router/modem does not have DHCP enabled (or it has a MAC Address filter in place.) Do you know how to edit your router's settings? If not, your ISP may need to do it from their side.

I would like to thank you one hundred ten percent for posting this information from the get-go. It makes our lives so much easier when information is posted in this manner.

It looks like when your computer is set to DHCP/Automatic IP, your router is not giving the PC an IP address. If I'm not mistaken, the 169.254... IP addy is an APIPPA address (Automatic Private IP Address). This address is used by Windows when it is looking for an address but the router it's connected to does not want to give it one.

This either means your router has DHCP disabled, or your router has a "filter" on it baring all but a specific set of MAC Addresses/computer names from connecting to it.

Hi,
I have 2 computers side by side both vista. This one can get to the Internet and the other one show Access Local Only.

I was working with file sharing and Internet stopped working. Is there a tie in with sharing and Internet connection?

I want a folder with read write access and no user/password protection and Internet connection. Is there a way to make this happen?

Is the sharing part of my network problem?

I recently purchased a new HP laptop with built in wireless adapter. While setting up this PC I connected to my wireless network just fine to update the windows operating system, (Vista Home Premium).

A few days later I upgraded my desktop PC which is connected to the router with a cable from XP Media Edition to Windows Vista Home Premium.

Now, when I turn on my new laptop it will only connect to my wireless network "locally" and not connect to the Internet.

Nothing has changed with my router.

What gives? I can't make it work.

Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router. Then reset it to factory defaults and reconfigure it. (Make sure you know the important settings before starting this procedure.)

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Identify your network if it is not obvious.

Also show ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

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

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Hey I have been having a problem with my HP Pavillion dv6000. It connects to my netgear router but at local only. I have connected it to other unsecured networks in my range and still have the same problem. I connected it by wire to my modem and still no luck. Can anyone help me? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Wireless Network Connection to local only

I'm assuming Vista, if that's incorrect, you need to be more specific.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or Windows 7.

Start, All Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

Remove power from the modem and turn off the computer. Connect directly to the modem with a cable, turn on the modem, give it a minute to sync, then boot the computer.
Post the following.
Try these simple tests.

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

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

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

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

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.

What are you asking about with regards to "Local Area Network Connection"? If you have cable broadband service, you have an ethernet cable somewhere between your modem, router, and/or computer.

I seem to have a situation where my wireless connection does not include my local network, so I cannot see or connect to any local computers on my network but I can connect to the internet just fine wirelessly. Of course, if I wire into the ethernet port I can see the local computers. I know I should be able to access the local computers wirelessly but I cannot seem to find the "switch" to combine local and internet access.

Hello,

I just got a notebook running on Vista Home Premium. I now want to copy some files from my PC (running on XP) to my laptop. Could somebody please explain to me in detail how to set up a connection between the two computers? I already bought a network crossover cable for Ethernet. Says something 'bout CAT 5 on the box aswell.
Is there something else I need? I can only connect to the internet with one computer at a time. Hope that's no problem.
Browsing through other threads hasn't quite helped me yet.

I used to have a network, with this computer being the client pc, but once my bro moved away, he took his computer, therefore we no longer have a network. But the problem is that ever since he left, this computer still thinks its apart of a network (I'm guessing that diagonsis) and I have to have "Local Area Connection Internet" turned on to turn on my actual internet connection. Also, as you would guess "Local Area Connection Internet" has the error message "Limted or no connectivity". So if anybody can tell me how I can use my internet without haveing to turn on "Local Area Connection Internet" I would be grateful.

I'm not so great with networking, but I'm pretty sure there is a simple way to fix this problem.

Thanks.

A:local network connection not working HELP!

Looks like you have had some nasties. The good thing is that - O23 - Service: Service Hosts (ServiceHost) - Unknown owner - C:\WINNT\shost.exe (file missing) - is showing file missing so that its not working. Alot of times the 023 entries you can go into the Manage Add-Ons within I.E.'s Settings and set it to disabled.

What i like to do is take this from the basics and work up. Lets start with ping and TCP/IP as this is a basic functionality of a NOS.

You say TCP/IP is not working. Can you describe what is occuring? Is this machine not getting any IP address at all? One of the things i like to do is look at the TCP/IP stack when you have had viruses and windows 2000 its very easy to reinstall.

Try this here - http://www.petri.co.il/reinstall_tcp_ip_on_windows_2000.htm

Once we get TCP/IP functioning and you getting a proper Ip address then we can work up to services and lastly address web browsing.

I am unable to access my own computer's shared folder from other computers in my office network. It's a wifi network and i am able to see my computer in my network places and can open it from my system, but when i open it from other computers it does not open, doesn't even ask for a password. Earlier I used windows 7 and vista wherein i could easily solve this problem but cannot find similar settings in xp. Kindly help.

I don't know computers at all and I need help... reassurance to be more specific.

My computer accesses the internet via a local network connection shared by my roomate. The router, hardware firweall, and DSL line originate in his room and so my question is this: Is there any way that my roomate might be remotely examining (from his computer)the websites I visit or the work that I do on my computer? He knows computers very well where as I do not. Thanks for any help you could provide, it is appreciated.

Go Chargers!
 

A:Local Network Connection Security

Hi, Yes it is possible that this could be going on.

Especially if he is the one who has physical access to your computer, that is, can he go and do work on yours?

Even if you have a Windows password, it is no real trick to bypass it, even in XP.

Here are some things to look over, please ask about anything you want to put in place because you are already possibly being monitored...and, if you make certain changes, your Internet access could be "cancelled" by what you do so I advise to make sure you don't change anything yet.
Scary, yes it is. Here are some pages to read up on using Internet Connection Sharing at home, with XP. Don't rush to try anything but I do want you to compare how things are set up to what they advise is safe. And, ask about things before you do anything!

http://www.google.com/search?source...hen+using+Internet+Connection+Sharing+at+home

http://ms.helifan.net/windowsxp/using/networking/expert/crawford_02july01.mspx <<the best info is here
http://netforbeginners.about.com/od/lockdownyourpc/Lock_Down_Your_Home_PC_Security_Essentials.htm

Now, stop and think- are you using a firewall, sharing one, or using the XP one?

If you don't know, you need to find out and the articles above will help you.

If he set up the equipment, the router configuration would most likely have been done from his pc,
and then if he did want to "see" what you had been doing, he would have had to do some steps ON your computer. If he set up more than just File and Printer sharing, Internet sharing, there are ways to tell.

Look at the icon of your Drive C: in My Computer....is it a hard drive icon with a hand holding it?

That would be an entire hard drive set up as a Share, and anyone on the network could go in from their pc and look through all files. There could just be some folders shared....

If you start the computer, and quickly start tapping F8 key, you should get a menu in black and white...like going to Safe Mode.....move the highlighted line down to Safe Mode, and press Enter once, then press Enter for your operating system, XP Home, or Pro.....and select the Administrator account to boot to by pressing Enter or OK

If you get a password box.....did you make a password for it? If you did not, someone has, because
by default, that account is NOT passworded.

Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt I'll need that in your next reply.

We've got our machine plugged directly into the modem and it previously worked fine. At some point something happened and now I have to connect via wireless. When I go the Network and Sharing Center and click "Change Adapter Settings", the only thing in the folder is "wireless network connection". I know the plug in connection works because I tested it on a laptop. I can even find where I can "opt in" or enable a LAN connection.

Any advice?

Thanks!

your PCI card could of went bad. look in device manager under network adapters and see if you have a PCIe family controller and your wireless adapter listed. use scan for any changes in hardware. need more info on what system you have.

usually appears after power the pc on. and happened while been connected.

sometimes it helps just pull out the cable then plug it in, other is, turn off and on the router, or deactivate and activate the network card.

also tried update driver, but that seemed to mess it more up so i went to device-manager and unistalled the driver, install it again from the cd to the mobo.

the other pc in the house is a laptop using the wireless with no problems.

A:Unstable local network connection

Do you have the latest driver from Realtek TW. Also note sometimes these adapters go DUFF! Are the lights on the back of the card lite or flashing?

Go into safe mode and remove the driver. Even shutdown the system and pull out the card. If it's onboard NIC, then disable it and get a PCI or PCI-E if you have the shorter PCI-E slot. They can go bad. Since you have ruled out your router isn't the issue and you can use yoru wireless laptop. Then the NIC is the issue.

How do I use the Windows XP Professional RDC (Remote Desktop Connection) from a computer that is outside the LAN? I have already been able to sucessfully use it from a computer in the LAN, but when I try to use it from a computer outside the LAN it does'int work. I've tried using the router's IP address and i've also made a No-IP.com account but still no luck.

Thanks

A:RDC (Remote Desktop Connection) Outside local network

You mentioned above that you could not connect via RDC over the local lan. Try a
netstat -an|find "3389"
and see if its even listening on the port. Is the computer you're trying to connect to also connected to a router? Do you control both ends of the computer? Can you ping the ip of the other computer? Is the Windows XP firewall on? SP1a or SP2? I know alot of questions but it's necessary in order to narrow the problem.

Hello.
This is a very peculiar issue.
Ever since I upgraded to Vista, in order to connect to the Internet, I must disable and then enable Local Area Connection. I get the two computers icon, but no blue dot (Internet) and it says that I am connected to two different networks. There are two computers at my house, Internet shared through a Link Sys router. The other computer had XP, and no problems with connection to the internet. Now I have upgraded the second computer also to Vista and face the same issue again.
Any ideas how to solve this issue? I can not stand disabling/enabling every day.
Thank you.

It connects for me and it also has problems when i'm playing an MMO b/c the server notices that something changed and disconnects me which is very annoying attached is a screenshot of this issue. Also the fix from m$ that most people show doesn't work as for some reason i don't have teh GUID key.

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.

Hello,

Yesterday i installed the Linksys BEFSR41 DSL router. The connection to the internet works from every port/switch (1 to 4). But the pc`s that are connected to the ports can't "see" eachother, so i can`t share files or printers. If i put another switch on a port of the linksys and i connect the pc`s to that switch then they "see" eachother and they can connect to the internet. But then i don`t use 3 ports of the Linksys :-(
What could be the problem? I think it should be a setting in the Linksys, i tried some but it didn`t work. Which setting could it be?

Greetz,

DJ
 

A:Connection Problem with local network Linksys BEFSR41v4

May be problem with subnet mask

Hi ,

As for my knowledge,
If you want to connect to another system on your router , all the connections should have the same "Sub net Mask"

You can see the subnet mask assigned using start -> run -> cmd

and "ipconfig/all"

The error message presented is "local area connection network cable unplugged". Everything works fine as long as I do not start certain programs. The error is self correcting, but interrupts the communications that were occuring at that time. This is a new problem that arose after I optimed my cable modem settings.

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.

Hello,

I apologize for my English as it is not my native speech.

So I encountered a problem. I connected my internet cable to PS3, and after about 10 minutes connected it back to my PC and it shows me the problem: Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration and Unidentified network. It wasn't the first time I connected my internet cable to PS3, though I had the same problem in the past, I just did what was written in troubleshooting and it helped, but not this time. There was no internet connection on PS3 also. I read a lot of solutions, but it didn't help so I thought maybe someone could help. Please write if you need some additional info, as I am not very tech savvy. Thank you in advance.

P.S. 1)Wireless is working fine. 2) My internet is not connected through router.

A:Unidentified network and Local Area Connection problems

Try unplugging the modem for 30 seconds then pug it back in and connect your cable to your PC. A lot of time with modems its registered by MAC addresses. This is why its a good idea to get a router (The MAC address will never change).

If its still not working after that you might have to call your ISP and let them reset it for you.

Sorry for poor English....!!!

I have 2 LAN cards installed in my Core2Duo;
1. Intel(R) PRO/100 VE, and
2. RealTek

but only one shows up in "Network Connection" that is "Intel PRO/100 VE" (which is named as "Local Area Connection 2"), which is working fine.

Green LED light shows up when I plugged the Ethernet cable into RealTek NIC, but still the Local Area Connection isn't there only one is present that is Local Area Connection 2... initially it used to show both...

The "Network Adapters" in Device Manager, doesn't show any RealTek Drive or any Exclamation ICON, but do shows "Intel PRO/100" without Exclamation, so it is working fine...

how to enable both LAN cards in Network Connection... Pls. guide for the same...

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?

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.

Dear Friends I am running XP on a four-year-old HP and also on a one-year-old HP laptop A standard Linksys router connects the two units via wi-fi or cable if desired Things were working fine until a few months ago when I lent the laptop to my brother Now when I try to use the laptop to connect to the internet via wi-fi it doesn't work The wireless connection on the laptop says that it's got a good Unplugged Area Cable Local Network Connection - signal -- no problem there But the Local Area Connection has that pesky red X and says a network cable is unplugged A third box labelled Connection says that it's also connected I've read a bunch of online Local Area Connection - Network Cable Unplugged posts but they all seem to deal with people using the wrong cable Point is there's no cable plugged into -- or unplugged from -- the laptop I'm not using a cable -- I want to my wi-fi to work like it used to without a cable Some posts says to disable the Local Area Connection I've done that repeatedly but it makes no difference --I still can't get to the internet One other point that may or not mean anything If I do connect the laptop to the router with a cable everything is great -- I get the internet Any help would be much appreciated Thanks Groverman

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.

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....

ANY TIPS????

Thank You

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

Hi guys, i have recently received a message telling me that a network cable is unplugged. Usually i have this problem with local area connection 2, but it always resolves itself while this one does not. I have tried unplugging my dlink and plugging it back in. please give me any suggestions! Sorry if this sounds dumb to you, much appreciated!
 

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.

Hi guys,

I have got a problem with my brother's computer. I have installed the ethernet controller driver from the CD, but I couldn't be able to connect to the network due to an ethernet cable is not properly plugged in or might be broken. I tried to repaired it but it doesn't help. I went on manufacturer's Web site to look for a driver, but i couldn't find it. And I went on google and couldn't find it either. I don't know what I am suppose to do. The name of the motherboard my brother have got is ASROCK K7NF2-RAID.
Could anyone help me to find me the update driver or how I can be able to connect to the network of the rounter where i could be able to connect to the internet?
Any advice would be much appreicated.
Thanks in advance.

you need to test the cable on another PC and make sure the cable is 1) correctly plugged in and 2) Not broken

for the driver
lets see an ipconfig /all
------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
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 paste here.

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

This should also work for windows 8
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box
(A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will now be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.

You should automatically obtain your ip address, dns, and gateway, unless directed otherwise by your isp.
Did you "power down/power up" your cable modem and wireless router?
Check to make sure you have the latest driver for your network card.
Can you ping an ip address? Can you ping the router? Can you connect to the router?
Do you have to contend with a firewall from the National University of Singapore?

DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
however , you have a fixed IP on the wireless adapter - although that looks ok if the cable works
change to a dhcp - yes - see how below

Atheros Wireless Adapter - AR5007EG & AR5007

Over the last couple of years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router - we can advise how to disable the wireless security

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section,

If you post a reply here with the Make and EXACT model of your PC, along with the windows version you are running. we will see if we can find a link to the driver and will post a reply with the link here.

--- 3) On one occasion re-setting the router back to factory default and re-configuring the router settings has resolved the issue

--- 4) The majority of members, have now used the drivers from the atheros driver site, which has resolved the issue.

This will open another page for that particular adapter and that windows version.

Now click on the download button labelled " Click to Download " and wait, the file will download - you do not need to click on any other buttons to get the download started

Assuming that after all the above the wireless still does not connect to the internet, all I can suggest is to use wireless security of WEP or to get an external USB wireless card.

Please post a reply here , and keep us informed of the situation and how you finally resolved the issue.

I recently upgraded a Windows 2000 PC (with an ASUS P4PE-800SE board) to Windows XP Pro. We have a Raid array (FastTrak TX2) and are using an onboard network adapter (Marvell 1207F). The internet and network connection work fine, however there is no icon for local area connection in Network Connections, and there is also no 1394 connection. The Device manager shows that the device is working properly, and the driver is an up-to-date version.

I have tried the fixes listed on Microsoft's site about this problem to no avail. The user needs to be able to manager her own network connection and is incapable or unwilling to use the Netsh command line interface. Please help.

Hi, I was trying to create a third network connection on my Windows XP laptop. It has a realtek 8139, cisco vpn and a atheros wireless adaptor. When I rebooted the machine after creating the network connection it gave me the blue screen with the bad_pool_header error.

Unfortunately, i had disabled system restore a few days ago and forgot to enable it again. so I am not able to go back to the previous working state either.

What could I do to fix this? I tried updating the ethernet card driver, and also uninstalling it. But on reboot, XP automatically installs the the drive. Even when I disabled all the ethernet and the vpn (in safe mode) it is still giving the same error. Any suggestions would be welcome.

If I turn off the router the internet connection immediately returns. I tried to disable the firewall but to no avail.

Any idea as to how enable both the local network and the 3G internet connection at the same time?

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.

It needs a Driver. You'll need to visit the Motherboard Manufacturers website & download the driver for your model board.

Before you go there, look in Device Manager {control panel / system /hardware} and see if anything else has an exclamation mark - they'll require drivers too!

Welcome axionman,

Have you tried re-booting your cable modem & router if you have those ?

How do you connect to the internet ? Your service provider ?

A:local area connection unidentified network no internet access Xbox

Joooooel> Can you tell us exactly how you have your network setup.

How the internet is coming in?: Your Internet Coming in? Is it going to another computer or to a Router?: Is the XBox Wireless or Hardwired?

Give us as much detail as possible.

There was lightning near my house today when it struck the power went out for a second and when it came back the Internet didn't work. And my network says Unidentified Network and when I troubleshoot it I get "local area connection" doesn't have a valid ip configuration. I'm not really sure what to do, I hope it isn't but it kind of seems like a hardware problem but I don't know enough to say so

A:Unidentified Network local area connection doesn't have valid ipconfig

If you have a cable modem, unplug power from it for about 2 minutes. Then power it up again. If you also have a router, unplug power from it for a short time, then power it up again. Then re-boot your computer. Let us know if this works. Who is your internet provider ? You may have to call them to do an electronic reset.

Recently, I've found that the Local Area Connection icon is missing from my Network Connections folder, but my connection still works. However, I cannot run my system on my WRT54G Linksys router (Yes, it sucks, I know), and as I have multiple systems in the house, this is a problem.

As it stands, I can run directly off the cable, but not when connected to the router. I cannot edit my connection settings. I've tried several microsoft fixes, such as the ones here:

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.

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.

Kinda baffled on this one all...

Pics attached:
Network icons in system tray show no connection, yet local and internet connections work fine and are perfectly accessable....
This happens both hardwired, and wireless... with three different brands of wireless adapters.
Rosewill, netgear and TP-link....
Tried with several drivers different drivers, included MS ones.
Also tried with and without the adapters manufacturer wireless software....same result of incorrenct MS icon... granted the manufacturer icon would report correctly...figures

Seen this before on a friends win 7 machine a few months back and didnt think anything of it...

My rig has a fresh win 7 x64 install, this network icon issue occurred both before, and also after windows updates, so that's pretty much ruled out too...and not a single piece of software or system mod was done before I established connectivity and seen the erroneous icons.... bashing head right about now....

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Running XP on 2 computers. Have them connected by a router. I set the router IP to 192.168.3.1 Everything connects great! When I connect to a wireless network, it all connects, but doesn't work ("connection timed out" or "Page not found" errors. The wire connection shows an IP of 192.168.2.1. If I disable my Local Area Network, the internet connects perfectly. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY I CAN USE MY LOCAL AREA NETWORK AND THE WIRELESS CONNECTION AT THE SAME TIME! Frustrating to the max! Any network specialists out there who can tell me how to fix this? Thanks!!!

You should know that x.x.2.1 is incorrect. For the router address shown, all devices that connect to it *must* be 192.168.3.x where x > 1 and < 255.

I would suspect that you have some static configuration data in the devices.

You want your router to offer DHCP in the range 2->32 (that's more than enough) and
you want all systems to use DHCP for the IP address and DNS settings.

Remove anything in the Alternative Configurations

Hey, so I have a problem and although i'm terrible at describing computer problems I'll give it my best shot. So one day I turn on my HP Pavilion dv6000 with Windows Vista x64 Ultimate and the internet would not work and it had been the previous day. The wireless connection switch is turned on and the light is blue, not orange, but my computer will not detect any networks. My little brother has an HP desktop with the same OS but he is not having problems connecting or finding the network so the problem is obviously internal to my computer. WHen i diagnose and repair it...i get the message: "plug a cable into the network adapter "Local Area Connection"." Again my connection is wireless and i have no idea how to fix this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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?

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.
