Dear Guys:

I recently just got broadband internet. The problem is, whenever I shut down then restart the computer, I have to disable and enable the Local Area Connection in order for it to connect.

When I click on CHange Adaptor Settings, it shows a Local Area Connection with NVIDIA nFore Network Controller, and a Local Area Connection 2 with MArvell Yukon 88E8053 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller.

In order to get the internet to connect, I have to disable the NVIDIA, not the Marvell Yukon.

I know a similar thread was posted on this problem but following the directions in that thread did not help me.

Here's what I'm looking at. I'm running Win7 with a Lynksys Cable/DSL router and a Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller. At start up, my wired internet connection is showing as no internet access. In order to gain internet, I must disable and then enable my local area connection. There are four computers in total using this router. Mine is the only one using Win7 and the only one not able to access the internet at start up. I can see the other computers on the network at start up. So this is definitely a computer specific issue.

I've checked the Device Manager at start up and there is no conflict showing with the Broadcom controller. I've checked the device driver and it shows that I am up to date. The file version is Broadcom 10.100.4.0

Here are the results for IPCONFIG/ALL

I need to reinstall my wireless router, but can only do so with a wired connection. My local area connection is disabled and the enable feature keeps failing. I cannot get connected with the ethernet cable. I am now at Starbucks using their wifi, so what I can try is limited since my wired connection is at home. But hopefully someone can help me get the local area connection enabled?
 

A:Cannot enable local area connection

Try deleting the network card in device manager then reboot should automatically reinstall the network card and allow your network connection to be used.

I'm not sure if the title of this thread is the problem, or only the beginning, but here goes...

I don't know what my fiance did to his computer but somehow the Local Area Connection got disabled. When I tried to enable it, it gets stuck on Acquiring Network Address and it doesn't seem to be able to pick up the IP address.

It's running on Windows XP, but lately now Windows takes several minutes to come up every time I reboot...

I'd be glad to give more info but I don't even know where to begin, so let me know what more information I can provide. (I'm on my computer now, but in the same room.)

Thanks!!

Hello. I have a Asus G73 laptop and yesterday i tried to connect to my broadband connection. But it won't connected because Local Area Connection is disabled, i don't know why it's disabled.
So problem is when i try to enable it i got BSOD :| (Right after 'Enabling...' message)

System Spec:
Laptop is factory refurbished and using it about 5-6month. It comes with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

A:BSOD when try to Enable 'Local Area Connection'

Problem Devices:
Code:
Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_16D51043&REV_06\47574716684CE00000 This device is disabled.
Were you aware the above device is disabled? Was there a reason you disabled it? I would recommend enabling it and making sure the drivers are up to date for it. You should be able to find the drivers at the laptop's support site.
Security Software: ??? Make sure to install security software. I recommend either of these:Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows coupled with Malwarebytes. Do not start the free trial of Malwarebytes. Just use the standalone version, update it, and scan your computer once a week with Malwarebytes and with Microsoft Security Essentials.

Good and Free system security combination.

After installing your security software, update it, and then run full scans today with each program. Report back the results of the scans.
And no, Sandboxie is not adequate security...
I recommend that you remove MSI Afterburner; it is known to cause system instability.
You have a lot of potential problems on your system; way too many programs installed and running. One of the latest crashes blames Connectify. Nearly all crashes are network related, so they may also be due to Connectify.

Can the "disable" button be used to disconnect the internet connection, or should I just switch off the modem? ("disable" sounds like you're breaking something.... ) Thanks.

A:"disable" Local Area Connection

The "Disable" tab is just a software switch that allows or disallows your NIC to function. It comes in handy if you have more than one NIC for your computer and only want one used at a time.Personally I have had my cable modem on since '97, expect for moving, black outs, and hardware upgrades. Although it is possible I do not feel it needs to be an essential device to be detached either by unplugging the Cat5 or power. Having your firmware up to date and the router properly configured, along with a software firewall (Not the XP firewall) would be a better approach. Even if you unplug the modem\router\NIC you should consider a software firewall a must have security tool.There are many suggestion but to answer your question it will not hurt to use the disable tab in Windows according to Microsoft.Using local area connectionsIf you disable your local area connection, the connection is no longer automatically activated. Because your hardware profile remembers this, it accommodates your location-based needs as a mobile user. For example, if you travel to a remote sales office and use a separate hardware profile for that location that does not enable your local area connection, you do not waste time waiting for your network adapter to time out. The adapter does not even try to connect.

Hi

How do I disable local area Connection properties for a standard use and for an administrator on a pc, users on my network keep changing the network adapter settings to allow them to have access to the internet. The users are a little tech savvy so by setting the adapter settings and just leaving out the default gateway and dns server address has not helped. I need to go deeper into windows network configuration to find a way to block them or find another way to prevent internet access. None of the users have email so they do not need access to mail either.

Thank you

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

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

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

Any help would be much appreciated.

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

Hi there and thank you for taking the time to help folks like us.

recently had a virus which was resolved here and fully cleaned by a professional. However, there are still some issues from that the virus left behind. I've been told my computer is fully cleaned from all viruses and they are unable to figure out how to solve this issue. I'm unable to disable my Local Area Network. I was able to before the virus hit me but after getting it fixed, it doesn't allow me anymore. Here is the exact error message:

"Error Disabling Connection- It is not possible to disable the connection at this time. This connection may have one or more protocals that do not support Plug-and-Play, or it may have been initiated by another user or system account."

The virus itself installed a Layed Service Protocal which was use by the hacker to get information off my computer. I believe LSPFix was used to help fix that and restore my normal connection. I'm thinking the hacker changed one of my settings somewhere such that I'm no longer able to disable my connection or corrupted something. I'm admin on my account so I should have sufficient rights to disable it.

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 ?

I have used boot & nuke to wipe clean an older XP desktop. Then I used the XP installation disk to get going to the basic installation that enables the computer to function.

The plan is to get the network card working and then use updates and auto-detect to configure the remaining drivers. I have done this with some success on a couple of other older XP machines previously.

I opened the case and worked out that the board is an Intel D865PERL. By going to the Intel website on another machine I have downloaded the network card drivers, copied it to a USB stick and then transferred the drivers to the machine being re-built. They all appear to have installed correctly - when I go to device manager it says that the "Intel(R) PRO/1000 CT Network Connection" is working properly.

When I go to Network Connections it says that the Local Area Connection is enabled. But in the details pane it reports the following:

IP Address: 0.0.0.0
Subnet Mask: 0.0.0.0
Assigned by DHCP

I have cross referenced the network configuration against another XP machine and confirmed that the TCP/IP properties are configured to obtain IP address automatically etc.

ipconfig /all in the command prompt reports the following:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Replace the Network Interface Card.

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

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

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.

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:

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

A:No Local Area Connection

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

The code 12 error on COM1 is a separate issue:

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

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

Recommended resolution

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

Disable the conflicting device

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

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

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

A:Local Area Connection

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

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

I have moved this thread from Distributed Computing to Storage and Networking, please post threads in the proper forum in the future.

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.

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.

Two computers that run on Windows XP are hooked up to the internet through a linksys wired broadband router. The router seems to work fine because my daughter's computer receives internet fine but on the main computer a message constantly pops up saying that "LOCAL AREA CONNECTION HAS LIMITED OR NO CONNECTIVITY" And then usually after that the internet disconnects. I'm thinking that it has something to do with the main computer and not the router because the message never shows up on my daughter's computer. Sometimes the message just says "NETWORK CABLE IS UNPLUGGED" can the computer not sense the cable is there?

for the connection from the modem to the router there is a CAT5e patch cable.
for the connection from the main computer to the router there is a CAT5 cable
for the connection from the router to my daughter's computer there is a CAT5e cable

Should I get a different cable for the main computer to router connection?
Is there anyway that it could be the computer and how would I fix that?

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.

A:local area connection

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

right now, i'm typing this post on Knoppix Linux, because my Windows XP isn't able to connect to the Internet through my SBC Yahoo DSL connection.

recently i've been streamlining my computer, getting it all ready for Myst V. this means i've been ripping things out, to the bare minimum i'll need to use the computer for what i use it for. and i, in my infinite wisdom, did this without System Restore points and without rebooting with each change, so i could figure out just what it is that i can and can't do.

anyway, i did a bunch of changes, and now my Windows machine won't connect to the Internet. the error i get in my SBC connection Manager is that it can't connect to the remote computer. i tried reinstalling the DSL software, but it only got through 4 of the 6 steps..the broadband connection didn't work. i did some troubleshooting, and apparently i need to go to Network Connections, and edit the properties on Local Area Connection. however, when i went there...there was no Local Area Connection. i remember it being there before, but it's gone!

I built a computer about a month ago and after a day or two of troubleshooting got all the hardware and software working. Even the local area connection internet was working (using vista 32 bit)

Then a week ago I moved to a different apartment and plugged it in, but no internet. So I figured it might just resolve itself and was a weird bug but it persisted. I installed windows 7 64 bit and got the same problem. The local area connection either shows "A cable is unplugged" or if I change it to 10 mb Full Duplex it shows "Limited or no Connectivity". Recently I bought windows xp 32 bit and still, after two installs it is doing this.

Things I have tried
-the netsh reset thing
-the ipconfig renew thing
-uninstalling ipv6
-installing and uninstalling all of the hardware drivers one by one
-switching cables

important note- If I haven't installed the ethernet driver my computer detects the network card as a controller and doesn't have the local area connection problem.

And the cable when connected to my laptop works fine...

Also, my college uses dhcp. Heres my ipconfig /all-

node type- unknown
ip routing enabled- no

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.

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

So I realize that this is my computer telling me that it is not getting a connection to the internet. So here is a basic diagram of my setup.

ISP---->Cable Modem----->(New)Splitter----------> Asus wifi router (working)

My ISP is Charter Com. via a Cable Modem. From there I go into a TRENDnet ethernet switch/splitter. From there I have 1) cable that goes to my desktop 2) one cable to goes to the upper floor to the wifi router (Asus RT-N66U) The router is working fine and I am currently connected to it. I have replaced the TRENDnet Switch every ethernet cable except to Asus wifi router. This is where it gets stupid. I can disconnect the TRENDnet switch and plug in my Desktop with the 169 IP and it works. I have researched this topic via forums for the past month and a half and now after fresh installing windows would like to try and get some input of what other might think is going on. I am out of options. I had this setup for quite some time with wired and wifi but just all of a sudden about 1-2 months ago after moving my desk and plugging it all in again it stopped working.

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.

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?

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

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

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

Assuming that's a wired and not wifi connection.

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

Your Firewall should be left active

Like to see the View Connections, but copy the text from this and past into your follow-up:

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.

I have tired to get rid of this bridge connection that is on my local area connection. I try to remove it with the bridge connection area and all it says is "To create a Network Bridge, you must select at least two LAN or High-Speed Internet connections that are not being used by Internet Connection Sharing." I have AT&T hig speed internet and tired talking to them and they said it was on my end, plus I spend two hours on the phone to someone who doesn't know much english and not alot about computers. So can someone please help me. The only way I can connect to the internet is through the my D-Link router which sucks. Someone please help me.

Okay it's going to sound confusing,my Safe Mode and Networking is working with the internet,but it is saying
No Connection is available.When I open Network and Sharing Center,it will tell me;View your basic network information and set up connection.It will say Unknown;The dependency services or group failed to start.I tried to troubleshoot the problem but it will give me a error message of;

Package ID:Unknown
Path:C:\windows\diagnostic\system\networking
Error Code:0x800706BA
Source:Engine
User:Family467-PC\Family467
Context:Elevated
But the strangest thing in the change adapter settings it shows the Local Area Connection is enable,but not
Network and Sharing Center.

The beauty of this story when I'm off the Safe Mode and Networking and in Normal Windows,there
is no internet connection at all.When in the Normal Mode it will say the same from on top;View your basic network information and set up connections;Unknown,The dependency services or group
failed to start.In the adapter settings there is no Local Area Connection Icon at all.

When I run the Services to start and stop programs I get error messages in all internet related commands,the error messages are 1079,1068,1038,etc...

So all this headache of a problem,what can I do to take care of it.It be nice to get my computer internet connection up and running again.Thank you so much Tony...

Just a thought here: have you tried uninstalling all network adapters; rebooting; then reinstalling them and rebooting again to see if that solves the issue? If not; I would give that a shot and report back.

Every 20 seconds my Local Area Connection aquires a new ip address. It does not show disconnected, just aquires a new ip. This is on the onboard NIC. I put in a PCI NIC and it does the same thing.
Also none of my usb ports are responsive. I just put in a new power supply because the old one would not start up. Does this sound like a motherboard problem??

Thanks for any input.

Hi All,

I have Virgin broadband internet. Recently the modem started playing up so I phoned Virgin who sent me out a new modem. I received it today, plugged it in and phoned Virgin to get it activated. When the advisor told me to connect to the internet I kept getting the page cannot be displayed message so he asked me to go into network connections which I found was totally empty. He told me i had lost my local area connection and to take the computer into a shop to get it reinstalled. I don't want to do this unless totally neccessary. Is there a way I can get it back or DL something to get it back? In my device manager it shows network adapters and under that VIA Rhine II Fast ethernet adapter. There are no question marks or explaination marks. I tried updating the driver but it says I already have the best one available. Is there anything else I can try? It was working fine before I plugged in and had the new modem activated.

Thanks for any help,

Debby.

I'm getting the following message: Local Area Connection

This connection has limited or no connectivity.

background: so you know how I got here:

In the last couple of days I had google and other searchers starting to get redirected when ever I selected any search results. Malwarebytes and other virus tools didn't find any problems so I just worked around it for the time being by selecting the search by opening in a new window.

This afternoon I needed to transfer some video from my camera via firewire to my computer. However when I finished I was getting the no local Area connectivity message.

so first I tried this after seeing someone with a similar sounding problem:

Go to Start ... Run and type in cmd
A dos Window will appear.
Type in the dos window: netsh winsock reset
Click on the enter key.

Still had connectivity problem

Then I tried a system restore from as far back as it would go (several months ago when the system was working fine) and again have the connectivity problem - hopefully the search issue is gone but I can't test because I have no connection.

So I now I gave up trying to fix it myself and am looking for help.

Thanks in advance

PS - I checked the cable to the computer - the system was nice enough to alert me when I disconnected it
forgot to add I'm running windows xp

I have a Dell desktop with Windows XP Home Edition. I recently restored the computer to factory settings and when I tried connecting to the internet the Local Area Connection wasn't showing in My Network Places. I have been searching through other forums and tried the things that they suggested but nothing worked. I am trying to connect to an AT&T U-verse 2Wire router through a wired connection. I tried connecting both wirelessly and wired to another computer and everything worked fine. I checked the Device Manager and there is an ! mark next to the Ethernet Controller. The properties say that the drivers for that device aren't installed. And of course I can't install them since I can't access the internet. Other forums suggested that I check the network adapters option in Device Manager but that isn't available in the device manager. What can I do to fix this problem?

Thanks in advance for helping me.
 

A:Solved: Local Area Connection isn't available

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

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.

Hello all. New guy here. Diving in head first, lol.

Anyways, my issue is with a laptop that I am working on. It has an integrated Realtek NIC adapter. When I go into Network Connection upon boot, I see that the local area connection is disabled. If I enable it (which works flawlessly) I can get right on to the internet for the duration that the laptop is powered up.

I guess my question is this: Why does the NIC keep getting disabled everytime I reboot? I have looked in Services (By the way this is a WinXP Home sysytem) and Network Connections is enabled and started with boot.

I have scanned the PC for viruses and it is coming up 100% clean. Any help is greatly appreciated. This is driving me NUTS to say the least.

I have an individual here that at least once a week his Local Area Connection gets Disabled. Most of the time it is from Friday to Monday. Most recently was this weekend, when he turned off his laptop on Friday he was Enabled, when he turned it on this morning it was Disabled. He left his laptop here and docked all weekend.

I know how to fix it when he can't connect, simply Enable his Local Area Connection, but I can't for the life of me figure out why or how it keeps getting disabled. Any ideas?

I recently discovered that my computer will no longer connect to the internet using an ethernet cord. I have done some research and found other postings on this matter, however nothing seems to work.

In the Network Connections I no longer have "Local Area Connection" and when searching in the Device Manager under Network Adapters I only have the "1394 Net Adapter" and the "Broadcom 802.11b/g WAN". I believe that there should be another Net Adapter under Device Manager for the LAN, just not sure where to download it or what it should be. Not sure if I deleted my Network Interface Card.

I have a Compaq Presario V3010US laptop which is running Windows XP Pro, Version 2002, Service Pack 3. My computer has an AMD Turion 64 X2.

Was your internet working previous to this problem? If it was, have you changed any settings? Theres a way you can set a static IP, and that would stop your IP from renewing. Also, are there any other computers working on the network?

Recently I was online and my firewall (Commodo) alerted me to a new local area connection that was found. I wasn't quote sure what to make of it so I denied it then my internet connection wouldn't work. I thought this was odd so I rebooted. Once it rebooted I had the same box appear about a new connection. I decided to do a system restore and that seems to have gotten rid of the new connection being discovered.

However I've notice some other little things that have been happening. Like in firefox noscript was completely removed (along with a few other minor ones like the accuweather addon). I also noticed when FTPing to my webserver I get to about 50% (very quickly) and then the connection times out. I booted into safe mode last night and ran AVG and spybot both found nothing. Am I infected with something? Or maybe was I and it got wiped out by the restore (which doesn't make sense because the FTP would be fine too)? Are there any other tools out there I could try to see if I do have a problem? Thanks for any input.

A:New Local Area Connection Found?

I find that various programs for capturing/recording TV...will often attempt to set up another connection...but denying these has never impacted my basic Internet connection.

I'd be curious as to specific data on this new connection, e.g., the IP address cited by your firewall. Actually, rather than post that...I'd just type that in and see where it leads me.

Hi Guys
I have been using a HUAWEI Optus Mobile Broadband 3G For around 2 years. Around 5 months ago I did not know this would affect me. I was online when a box came up saying Optus 2 and I had no idea what it meant. I just changed it's name to Optus and left it. Later I could not connect to my XBOX through it anymore. All of the options for sharing and so on are correct. What has happened is the the Connection is called optus not Local Area Connection. I am trying to find out how to change this the Connection to Local Area Connection. Here is a small picture.
