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.

Open device manager. Uninstall those device with ? on them. Reinstall drivers for your network adapter.

What devices are listed under network adapter?

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium computer that is not connected to the internet. I have checked the drivers and they are all installed correctly and operational. When I go into the adapter settings there is no Local Area Connection adapter. I have included some screen shots of what I am seeing if they help.

A:Local Area Connection missing from network adapters, no connection

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

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?

I have no Local Area Connections showing up in my Network Connections folder. I have an operational network connection via the ethernet port on my HP pavillion running Windows 7 Ultimate and the icon shows up in the status bar. I have no way of copying and modifying it.
My connections for my home group shows a blank although I am connected.

What has happened to the Local Area Connection icons, display data? More importantly how do I restore it?

I was trying to connect to a piece of equipment and discovered that I could not locate the local area connections to copy and create the required communication specifications.

Thanks
Steve

Could you post a screenshot of what is available in your network connections so that I can better identify your issue.

Could you go to device manager and then check if there are any red X's by any devices. If so please post back your results

To access device manager please open the attached folder and then open the file to view the steps.

Many Thanks,

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.

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:

So when the power went out an what not, I quickly disconnected everything. But it seems the damage was done already. When I turned my computer back on and plugged the internet cord back in. I couldn't get on the net. I checked my Network and I don't see my Local Area Connection Icon there, nor do I see the connection. I need major help. COuld it be that the power surge burnt out my NIC?

I am trying to get my local area connection to reappear after I accidently erased it from network connections in XP. My questions are these:

Do I have to reinstall my drivers from the XP disk or is there another easier way to re-create this connection?

Also, I would I know for sure if the drivers are missing? My command prompt does not show the Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection but my device manager lists the network card as installed on my computer.

Remove the network card from device manager lists. After that windows auto detect and reinstall your card, Local Area Connection will be back

Then later it was discovered that "Local area network" was missing, no icon, no connection listing. Ok lets check the drivers. Humm missing also, almost as if there is no hardware? Ok check the bios, shows enabled? This connection was working just before the cleaning and upgrade? Anyone have any suggestions short of a wipe and reload to fix this issue? Just a FYI, the wireless works fine?

A:Missing Local Area Connection

Did you replace the router?

It would appear you only replaced the modem.

"We've replaced the modem and can now connect on one computer in our house, but not on the other."
If only using a modem that would be correct. You need a router if more than one.

If you turn off the working one, after a reboot does the other start working?

If you are still using the router make sure you connected the modem to the wan port not one of the lan port.

You don't xfer drivers from one pc to another. You first go into device manager and make sure the nic is showing. If an exclaimation point you need to load the driver for it which you can download from your pcs web site or take it off the cd that came with the system.
When the hardware is working then you install networking.

Hi, I am using Windows Vista and I normally use a wireless internet connection, which has been working fine. I was on the road and wanted to plug into an ethernet internet connection, but it would not work. To my surprise, the network connections is missing an icon for Local Area Connection! It has an icon for wireless, and one for my Home Network that I used to have, but have not used in some time.

Using my wireless connection, I have tried re-downloading the network card driver from the HP website, but that did not help. When I take a look in the device manager, it appears to show up fine without any "x" or "!" symbol over the network card adapter, which shows separately from the wireless adapter. Any idea how I can go about fixing this?

Thank you in advance for any help that you may be able to offer!

You should first try going into Device Manager and disable the connections that aren't being used, especially the Msoft virtual wifi miniport which tends to cause connection problems when it's enabled but not being used.

I'm not sure what happened to your local area connection but shared connections aren't something that I would call reliable as you have found out.

I had a similar problem some time ago.. I uninstalled the device, and since the NIC was on my mobo I disabled it in the bios and rebooted. The device was thus removed from device manager. I then re-enabled it in the BIOS and boot the PC again, it then detected it and installed the M$ drivers, which I then replaced with drivers supplied with the mobo.

This worked for me... Perhaps you might have similar good luck?

Hey I have a Dell Windows Vista Inspiron -bit laptop and I just had internet installed today The modem was not recognized by my computer So I could not connect directly to the modem Was wondering if this could be due to the fact that my Ethernet Controller driver is not working or is uninstalled icon Local Area missing Connection There is a yellow exclamation point next to it under the device manager My router is also not working Thinking I Local Area Connection icon missing might need another Called the router company and they had me looking for the Local area connection icon under manage network connections and the only icon visible is a Dell wireless LAN mini card reader So I can connect to the internet wireless but not through the modem itself I still have a really bad internet connection and pages load extremely slow or does not load at all I can receive internet wireless through someone else internet better than my own Local Area Connection icon missing internet Which is really sad LOL Help downloading the CORRECT Ethernet controller or getting the local area connection icon visible again would be greatly appreciated I have already looked on Dell website I just don't know which one to download

So, I just got my new internet today...
I have an XP desktop that I want to connect with ethernet cable.
However, I cannot find "Local Area Connection" button in the "Network Connections".
Only buttons on there are "1394 Connection" and the wireless connection I'm using right now.
I don't have problems connecting to the internet (using wireless), but I want to fix this issue.
I googled into this, but none of them worked so far.
I can provide more information if you need them, just tell me how to get them.
Thanks~

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.

I wiped my computer clean and reinstalled windows. I am missing my Local Area connection now. All I have is 1394 connection. I've reinstalled all the drivers and utilities cd's that I have. I am using my wireless connection now but if I connect directly into the computer I have no connection. I have a Dell computer with Windows XP home edition service pack 1a. Any ideas how I can get my Local Connection back?

A:Local Area Connection missing after reinstalling windows

go into device manager and locate the network interface. Go to drivers and update drivers. Then it should be a matter of browsing to the correct location on the utilities cd to find the driver.

Alternately you can identify your make/model if OEM [like Dell] and go to there web site and download the driver. If home built you would go to the mainboard manufacturers site to download the same.

If you are in Metro, it will not show. In Desktop mode, you have to "Customize" to show the Networking icon. It will only switch to Wifi, once you disconnect from Ethernet and connect to a Wifi Access Point.

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.

Is your wireless working? Go under your BIOS and see if the WiFi is enabled or functioning. Download any BIOS updates, WiFi drivers update an etc.. If all is done and you still have the issue. Buy USB WiFi NIC Dongle and test that and see if you can get LAN or WAN connection.

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.

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 Team,

I have a problem with my Local Area Connection. I have installed the driver correctly and can access the internet also. But when I go to Open Network and sharing center -> change adapter setting -> I can not see Local Area Connection icon appear. My OS is windows 7, HP System.

Welcome to Seven forums mail.

Can you please post a picture of Device manager and a picture in the adapter settings where your local area connection should be?

I have a Dell Inspiron 5100 Notebook running XP Home with SP2. I connect to a printer and to a Maxtor external drive. My system tray shows 2 Local Area Connections (with "A network cable is unplugged), and 1 Network Bridge (that also says "A network cable is unplugged"). My printer is plugged in.

I show the following in my Network Connections. I want to know if anyone can tell me whether I can delete them? I do not have a LAN connection or High-Speed Internet (although I hope to get the latter soon). Thanks.

I've downloaded drivers from Lenovo website, but no result.

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....

ANY TIPS????

Thank You

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.

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?

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.

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.

I have 2 LAN cards installed in my Core2Duo;

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...

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.

Hi thanks for looking,
I have just recently reinstalled windows. When I plug in the lan cable, no LAN connection comes up. I have never had this problem before and usually just doing this will allow me to have internet.
Whats wrong? How can I fix?

Thanks
 

A:Local Area Network (LAN) connection isnt showing up in connections

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!

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?
Researching more. Let me know about this...

For over years I've run the same network in my home My personal computer receives it's signal from a custom-built antenna with attached ampliflier which gives my internet signal directly to my machine the internet source is from my parents' house I live in a neighboring home The internet on my machine works just fine like usual however I recently went on vacation and took my computer with me and upon return my network now fails I used a direct ethernet link for internet during this vacation This situation has happened before but I previously fixed this problem with a system restore this is no longer an option because I don't have the option to restore to a point before I was gone on vacation When I say this happened before I mean everything about this problem is identical to the time I encountered it last that my network router remained visible and the internet worked on my main computer but the router wouldn't 'take' the signal and broadcast it properly The problem as best as I can understand is this the router is visible and is directly connected to my personal computer however failure/Network issue down address Connection Local IP Area there is no Local Area Connection IP address failure/Network down issue internet signal when connecting to the router via phone laptop etc The only message that suggests something is wrong is the following Local Area Connection does not have a valid IP configuration When trying to connect with her laptop my girlfriend received this message and also when trying to diagnose my local area connection I received the same message about the IP address being invalid for the Local Area Connection What could be wrong When this happened before my friend who works in IT explained that since normally you receive internet from routers and not vice versa I'm trying to get my router to broadcast the internet signal that my computer already has that the diagnostics behind it can be difficult and thus only did a system restore I'm completely in the dark as how to fix this Nothing is wrong hardware-wise I am sure of this I read about trying to reset ip settings for ipv ipv through cmd but nothing has worked so far ------ System specs updated

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.

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.

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.

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,

I started playing Xbox 360 again today, and i tried to go online, which apparently didn't work out anymore...
So i tried to fix things by checking my "Local Area Connection" on the pc, and it just disappeared?
I used to have it there before, now it's gone.
Probably because of reinstalling Windows 7 about a month ago?
I've looked up many threads, but nothing really applies to my exact situation, or i just end up not understanding them.
Anyone could help me out here?

Thanks already!

what make and model of computer do you have do you have the user guide if so it will tell you if not need make model etc ie is it a laptop or desk top but this may help the cable you need is called a rj45 it looks like a large telephone plug and their is only one place it will fit so if you have a cable a little trial and error will help find it just do not force anything in anywhere

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.

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?

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
