A cable is not plugged into your network adapter "local area conn

Recommended Posts

Hi all this is my first time posting(first time ive needed help).

 

My friend cant connect to his network after booting up his computer this morning. He says he hasnt changed anything or messed with his connections. Im using my computer to post this.

 

His setup is like this..

 

Modem->wirless router(wired)->his pc(wired)

->second pc(wireless)

 

His second pc using a wireless connection works fine but his main pc using and ethernet cable cant connect.

 

When i diagnose the connection i always get this error message

 

"A cable is not plugged into your network adapter "local area connection""

 

All the connections are fine and ive tried resetting them and rebooting but he still cant connect. Ive tried a system restore to fix it but it doesnt work.

 

The network adapter is where i think the problem may be. It says it is working fine in device manager, but when i try to reinstall the drivers i get an "install failed, operation timed out" message. His NIC is onboard and im using the manufacturers disk for the drivers.

 

Heres some details about the setup..

 

operating system-Vista home premium

modem-Motorolla Surfboard SB5101e

Router-sweex wireless broadband router

NIC-onboard, NVIDIA GeForce 7050 / nForce 610i mobo

 

This is what i got when i used ipconfig/all..

try turning off the router and cable modem, wait a couple minutes and start them back up, the cable modem first and then the router

Have look at the network card, are the yellow/green traffic lights flashing.

 

If they are just yellow, your pc is not getting a response from the router.

 

If no flashing at all, could be cable, networkcard or settings.

 

let us know and we will go from there.

The cable is fine.

 

I tried resetting all the connections.

 

There was no flashing lights on the network card. I checked all the settings and as far i could tell they were all fine.

 

The computer was still under warranty so i got in touch with the tech support team and after running some tests they decided to come pick up the computer and repair it back in the shop. Im still waiting for the computer to be returned so i dont know what was wrong with it yet but im guessing its a hardware fault.

 

Ill reply again when i get more details.

No flashing lights on the network card, could mean its faulty, or it's just not set up properly (ie turned off) under device manager.
