Loca Area Connection Problem/Network Problem

Q: Loca Area Connection Problem/Network Problem

Greetings folks,

This is my first post , so Hi to all.

I got a network/connection problem.I formatted my pc today because when i turned it on , it gave the windows screen and then it said that it can;t access the " SYSTEM " folder , so i formatted it since it's been a while since i've done that ( like a year and a half ).After that , I tried connecting to the internet by inserting the ip address numbers and the DNS ( I use cable connection ) , it didnt work , then i tried chanding the network card number , it worked , for like 30 minutes but then it stoped , it said " network cable is not plugged " or something like that , but then it plugged ( i dont know how ),but no internet connection ... so i went to check for the network cards and there was like 2 or 3 of them ( NIC i guess it was written ), i tried uninstalling them , but it didnt work , so i disabled them , but still , there was no internet connection. I tried ipconfig/all / renew /etc... but still , NO PROGRESS. So if you may PLEASE help me in this , cuz im supposed to give my final thesis at the university at the end of this month . Thanks in advance

Oh and also , stuff like Local Area Connection , 2 , 3 , 4 ,5 ,6 , 7 started appearing :S

A: Loca Area Connection Problem/Network Problem

Are you getting any 'link light' on the card you plug the cable into? Usually a little green light or Amber I think it is on Dell. If you are not I suggest trying a different cable from your modem to your PC.

Also, is your PC directly connected to the modem or into a router?

And when setting your IP address are you going to Start --> Control Panel --> Network Connections?

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

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

Could you be of some assistance in this matter?

Thanks in advance.

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

A:Problem W/ Local Area Connection

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

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

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

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

Hello, everyone. I need some advice on how to get my local area connection work. I have a HP Compaq Presario 2100 laptop, model # 2104US. I am currently experienced some problem with my laptop (suspected some virus). Any way, I think I got rid of it and reinstalled all of my software and hard drive back. The weird thing is I got the wireless network connection going (it's picking up the DSL signal) but the the Local Area Connection is flashing this message: " A net work cable is unplugged". I am a computer Illiterate so I have no idea how to make it works again. I have no problem of getting connection before but as soon as I reinstall my computer I coulnt get any connectivity. My sister laptop is working fine so I dont think anything wrong with the DSL service at home. I also checked the main computer at home (also HP) and noticed one software that I lost is the 1394 net adapter. So far I have the wireless network connection picking up the DSL signal from the router at home, but not the local area connection. I really help please. I really this laptop working again before my school start. Any one?? Please help me!!!!

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

Hello, I am running the Windows XP operating system.

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

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

Thanks,
Jon.

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

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

Let us know the results

I recently installed Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 on my computer and am now having a problem with my internet connectivity. When I run the Windows 7 Troubleshooter I get the message that says that 'There might be a problem with the driver for the Local Area Connection Adapter'. I have attempted many things to fix this.

I have uninstalled the drivers for the Network Adapter and that didn't fix it

I have run sfc/scannow and that didnt fix it

I tried ipconfig /dnsflush that didnt work

I cannot use ipconfig /renew and /release because it is not connected to the internet.

System restore will not work because there are no restore points.

I uninstalled Kaspersky and disabled Windows firewall hoping it might be a firewall issue. I also used their uninstaller that was recommended on Kaspersky's site.

I installed a USB wireless network adapter which changed the message from 'Local Area Connection Adapter to 'Wireless Area Connection adapter'.

Please help, I do not want to reinstall windows. If anyone has any advice that can help please let me know.

A:There might be a problem with the driver for the Local Area Connection

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

Hi,

I hope someone can help with this because i am going stare crazy with this.
Last night i used my computer and surfed the web as normal without any issues. I go to bed, get up in the morning and notice my pc has rebooted. I think nothing of it as i thought it was just an update. I go to work, come home and log in. I try to get on internet and nothing. Red x down the bottom corner in the network toolbar. Ok, ill open it up and fix it, ive done it many times before. However this time it won't work, i get the following message:

The wired network adapter is experiencing problems.

So i click next in the diagnostics tool and when it gets to troubleshooting has completed i get the following message:

problems found
there might be a problem with the driver for the local area connection adapter

I have rebooted, restored to a previous point changed cables etc but to no avail. I checked the driver in device manager to make sure it was the right one and was working and it all seems fine.

Ive had a read through here hoping i could find someone else who has had the same problem but the only one i found had internet access but not fully. I have no internet access, ive even tried connecting wirelessly to my router but that doesnt work.

Im currently on my laptop which is work btw.

Any ideas? Ive tried finding the drivers online but all i seem to find is sites that i can download an auto driver fixer which is no good when i have no internet access on my pc for it ... Read more

Hey guys,
 
I've recently been having a problem with my Local Area adapter. Every time I plug my charger in, the internet disables itself. Troubleshooting, enabling the adapter with admin priviledges, and resetting my physical router all do not work, and I have to restart my computer. When I do, it freezes at the shutdown screen, and I have to force shut down. When I restart my computer, the internet works just fine. Trying to enable the Adapter when the internet is down doesn't work, because it freezes, and troubleshooting "can't identify the problem."
 
Things I have tried already:
 
1. Downloading the mot current adapter drivers
2. Enabling the Local Area Connection Adapter when I DO have internet access
3. Checking to see if I have any power-saving features turned on (I do not--all of the boxes are checked in Power Management options)
 
I also noticed that in Device Managers, the WiMAX reports that the driver software isn't installed, even though I just installed the most recent.
 
Thanks in advance for your help!

I have been having problem connecting to my wireless modem through LAN cable out of a sudden 4 weeks ago.

Whenever I try to connect now, it will say "acquiring network address" and it will subsequently fail or says "limited or no connectivity". I've tried repairing the connection but it doesn't seem to work.

To check whether it is the problem with my modem, I have tested using my wireless connection and it seems to work fine. I've also ping 127.0.0.1 and got the response immediately.

A:Problem with Local Area Network

The symptoms are you have either a driver issue, bad cable, bad port on the router, or a bad NIC.

I'd start by reloading the NIC drivers, if that doesn't do it, use a new cable and a new port on the router. If all else fails, you'll need a new NIC. Since that would be part of the motherboard, let's hope it's not the NIC.

After using my (Malwarebytes, AntiMalware- Premium) also used (Adware remover) and (Hitman pro- Trial version) after reading couple of articles and threads on the internet.
NOTE: I'm not really into computers and stuff, but I know how to keep my PC clean all the time, but this was my younger brother's mistake when he downloaded something which I don't know.
Everything so far was running smoothly on my PC cause i disconnected the Ethernet cable and started cleaning, now after (Adware removal) finished I had to restart my PC.
Once it started, I had no internet connection at the bottom of the taskbar, and the internet icon showing (red X) after diagnosing and troubleshooting i had this message (there might be a problem with the driver for the local area connection adapter) ..
came back to the internet trying to find a solution, and I've read a similar thread by someone and was answered by a professional Moderator who seemed to know it all and the issue was solved for that guy.
I tried the steps advised in that thread but didn't work for me.
I really wish someone can help me. and I will be very grateful and thankful

I got a new 2Wire modem from Bell the other day and set it up just fine. I am connected wirelessly to the new modem and it works perfectly. I also have an ethernet cable connecting my computer to my modem as well but it seems that the computer can't pick up the internet through the cable.
The computer picks up the wired connection as an Unidentified network and has access to Local only. When I disconnect from the wireless connection, the computer tries to reidentify the wired network and labels it with limited connectivity without any access to the Internet. From time to time it also flashes a connection to a second network through the ethernet cable though it's probably confused.
The same ethernet cable and computer worked fine with my old router and modem. It recognized that the wired and wireless connection were from the same network, so it's not likely it's a problem with the hardware.
In short, I need the Local Area Connection network to work.
I've tried updating the driver for the ethernet network adapter.
Suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks.

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

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

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

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

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

Anyone know the problem? Thanks for your time.

Upgraded to window 7 64 bit from vista 32 bit. Did the custom install like it said. With Vista I had 6GB of memory in computer and it showed all 6 in the system information and everything worked fine(yes I know it wasn't using all 6gb). After the windows 7 64 bit install if I put more then 3gb in my local area connection will not configure a valid IP address and windows turns off my video card(gts450) because it says there is a hardware problem(card is fine tested on another computer). If I just have 3gb installed the local area connection is fine and so is the video card. My system is 64 bit cpable and the motherboard supports up to 8gb. Max memory was unchecked but now I have to have it checked and maxed at 4096 to make my video card work and get the local area connection configure an IP. The ram sticks are fine, I have used all of them in diffrent configuraions for the 3gb(2-2gb 2-1gb). I have tried everything I can find on the web about anything remotely resembling this to no success. My BIOS does not have a memory remapping feature but again if 6gb was working fine on a vista 32bit OS why won't they work on a 7 64 bit? I even called microsoft tech support about the local area connection problem and they couldn't figure it out. Any ideas would be helpful.

If the timings are different then this could be the main cause, remember Vista didnt use all 6 gig so thus ignoring the ones that are faulty and using the ones that are ok too use.

(HELP!)

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

My computer crashed and windows xp had to be restored. When windows was restored it seems as if it created a new user. I am now unable to connect withto the d-linx router with the wireless adapter in my laptop (hp pavillion ze 4500). I've done the ipconfig and get the error message:

Ethernet adater Local Area Conection:
Media State ......Media disconected

The blue connection light is turned on so I think that it is working. When I checked in device manager, everything appears to be working properly. I am at a lost as to what to do next.

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.


Also, I'm having problems with Windows Update. I can't seem to "install" patch KB931784.

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.

Here's the basic deal. I'm running on a toshiba laptop, at my parents place (up visiting for a week) My father is running off of a desktop

We both use win 7 64 bit

We are hardwired into a router.

We both run firewall and anti-virus programs and have come up clean in both cases.

Other systems plugged into the same router still have local area access.

We have both recently installed logmein hamachi to be able to operate more easily as a lan, along with the other family members.

The systems other than those two things don't have a lot of similarities.

At the time we started having issues, the VPN software was completely off and disabled on both computers.

His computer suddenly was not able to connect to the LAN, within 15 minutes, in the middle of researching a web page to try and get him running, my computer suddenly was also no longer able to connect.

Restarted the router
Ran the winsock fix
Installed new ethernet drivers
In the case of running an ipconfig it reads as everything disabled and for obvious reasons cannot renew.
DHCP is enabled
Ran the system hardwired into a backup router coming off the main modem, didn't make a difference

Says that it's connected into the LAN and you can see other systems on the router, but cannot connect through to the internet.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

A:Local area network connection issues.

I recently worked on a system where one of the users had installed VPN software possibly Hamachi and it completely ruined the networking on that system. Try rolling back to a restore point if you have one from before you installed the VPN software.

Hello, I hope someone can help me. I am on a Gateway Solo 600 XL, running XP Home SP1. I started having trouble with my Local Area Connection and after trying ipconfig/release/renew as well as reconfiguring TCP/IP (properties dialogue box remained shaded, therefore I was not allowed to make ny changes at all) I tried uninstalling the device. After rebooting the system, a yellow exclamation point appears in the device manager at my network adapter (Intel Pro/100 VE Network Connection). I receive the following error: This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31). When I try to uninstall again, I am told the the device was not able to unistalled because it may be needed in order to boot. I've tried downloading updated drivers and using the Recovery CD to no avail. At the time, I did try the Google Desktop Search but abandoned it before it ever finished trying to index my hard drive. I used the Google troubleshoot network program to undo any changes made and return my configuration to its original state but still no Local Area Connection. I know that it has to be something stupid that I am overlooking. I would appreciate any help anyone could provide.

i would open up the tower and take off the network card.

then boot up the computer as it is (without the nic card)

then shut down.... put the nic card back on (on a different slot if possible)
and then boot up again....

try installing the drivers again if it needs them but xp should auto-install everything 4 u.

if it continues troubling u try changing the network card itself as it my be faulty

Near my clock two little pc icons pop up and it says "Acquiring Network Address" which tells me I might have a problem with my network card. I've already tried going into the command prompt and renewing my ip address but that isn't working either. Says something wrong with the rtc server. I'm not entirely sure what that is.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Hey guys,

My internet provider has just recently been switched to Time Warner Cable. They came by and hooked everything up to my desktop and my internet worked for that day. The next day, I had to call technical support and road runner services because my computer says I'm connected, but I'm not sending nor receiving any packets.

Road Runner took me through Device Manager where I noticed a big yellow question mark near Other Devices/Network Controller.

Also, after going through my Network Connections; there's no Local Area Connection listed. The techs responded that they couldn't help me unless I fixed my computer software.

I have already tried going through Computer Management and checking Plug And Play Services & RPC Services.

Any other suggestions are much appreciated!

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.

"Local Area Connection Network not connected" is the annoying little bubble that pops up on my screen everytime I turn on my computer. And sadly, it stays there. I recently moved to a new apartment, my internet connection was fine when I arrived. One week later, and I'm screwed up the wazoo. The facts are as follows:

1. I've been living in a community that receives free internet service courtesy of Pavlov (whatever that might be- However, anything named after such a sadistic dork, I should probably be wary of, right?). In my first apartment here, I had issues registering w/ the service as, for some reason, my computer refused to accept the connection initially. I called local maintenance and a smart young lady w/ the computer center arrived, worked her voodoo, and left me w/ internet. It was good.

2. When I moved, I simply moved from one building to another in the communtiy.

3. After I moved, my internet worked fine for a week and a half. In that time, there were two large storms. One noticeably knocked out power, but not to my room. The other occured the day before....

4. I discovered this annoying little message of disconnection and called Pavlov Tech support.

5. They walked me through an entire process of checking my IP address and renewing my connection and everything. --Didn't work, if you couldn't tell. They promised to send out a technician who was to arrive in three business days. I'm still waiting over a week later.

Hello everyone,

This is my first post. I'm looking forward to becoming a member of this community.

Here is my problem. I'm working on a Windows XP Desktop (Dell), which is connected to a cable modem using an ethernet cable. I also have a Windows Vista Notebook (HP) which connects to the Internet (my secure network) wirelessly.
I use Time Warner Roadrunner as my ISP.

A month or so ago, Time Warner contacted me and asked if I wished to "upgrade" my Internet service/speed for a nominal fee (I think it was $10 per month). As I am self-employed and frequently upload/download large files for my business, I decided that this was worth the expense. So I agreed to make the upgrade, which was done entirely on their end by resetting my modem (whole process took about 30 seconds).

Since that time, I've had nothing but problems with the wireless connection on the Notebook. Any time I attempt to download a large file on to that computer (again, all done wirelessly), the download fails and I lose my Internet connection on that unit (e.g. the small globe icon in system tray which indicates that I am connected to my network disappears and is replaced by a red 'x' or the yellow 'alert' icon.

At the same time this occurs, I get a notification on my desktop PC (the one that is connected using the ethernet cable) stating: Local Area Connection: A Network cable is unplugged. The outage usually lasts for anywhere from 15 seconds to... Read more

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.

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 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 1394 Connection 4 says that it's also connected.)
I've read a bunch of online 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

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.

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.

Hey ho everyone. I have a common problem that I have seen a lot of people have. I'm posting on here because I don't really know a lot about networks, but here's my story. My dad has a computer with Windows XP on it, but it is running very slow and needs to be replaced. The computer is wired to a ATT modem that has a router (both wired and wireless) in it. The internet does work with a ethernet cable plugged in on the WinXP OS, however I will mention. So he bought a new hard drive and a new version of Windows 7. He unplugged the XP hard drive and only had the new (Win 7) drive plugged in. I ran the instillation process with the cable still plugged in, never changed a thing. Once Win7 was finalized, no ethernet internet connection. We run a diagnostics and I get the error message posted in the subject. We have switched back to the WinXP hard drive and the internet is working just fine. We also formatted the Win7 hard drive and ran a new install and got the same result. Here is a little bit about my system.

For over 5 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, there is no 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.

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!

Hi Guys, I have been experiencing this issue since 3 days ago. (1 year on and was having no problems)

I am currently using a Dell Studio XPS 16, Windows 7 64-bit

I am able to connect to the internet via wifi, however to no avail with my LAN connection. I have tried the basic stuff like changing LAN cables, testing connection with other Windows 7/Vista/XP laptops and they worked except for mine.

I have tried methods posted online such as the netsh winsock reset, disabling IPv6, setting static IP for IPv4 etc. However, none has worked for me.

Below is my ipconfig/all :

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...

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.

Are you saying that if you click Start, Network Connections, nothing shows?

Or do you mean the Task Bar icon?

I have a Dell 1535 Studio vista laptop...........I also have TWC and this particular laptop is wireless yet the local area connection network cable says unplugged...broadcom netlink.......I know it is wanting a ethernet cable plugged in but....it is a wireless laptop so why would I plug a cable in? ...I also have a Dell E310 desktop that is hard wired into TWC with a Arris tg1672g modem................that belongs to TWC. I have no problems with the desltop hardwired but the laptop wireless downstairs continues to lose wi fi and or connections.......it shows 100 speed and has at lest 3 to 4 bars but......it still goes in an out. I called to have TWC come and check it out for me but they will not do it. Said they do not work on computers but I thought maybe their installation went wrong? But no advice. This has been going on for a long time and I get so fed up paying the bills but getting 1/2 cable internet in return. Does anyone on the forum have the same problems? Thanks for your help.

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.

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:

If anyone has any other help, it would be greatly appreciated.

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.

I was forced to reinstall Windows today on my desktop. I am on my laptop now sitting next to my desktop. On the desktop I get no connection to the network and obviously it is working because I am sending you this. I tried going to the Network and Sharing but it just says there is no connection. Before I had to put in my Network Name and Key. I can't even find a place for that now. Could you give me some ideas on what I might have missed. I haven't had this problem before. Thanks,

A:Network connection problem

What about your wireless router, or is this the generic "can't connect to a hotspot" issue?

First thing is always find the latest driver for the device and (for your router) the
latest firmware.
