attention Steps 1-4 are a joke, if you take this seriously, prema23 and dottech shall not be held responsible for your actions.
Where you network cable plugs in, check to see if the status light is on or blinking. If it's not, check the other end (I.e., your router) and make sure it is plugged in there. If everything is plugged in, then the problem is a bad network cable, a bad port on the router, a bad router or a bad NIC. Start eliminating things one by one: 1) swap network cables, 2) try another port on the router, 3) see if another computer connects successfully to the router, and if none of those work, my best guess is a bad NIC. Odds are your existing NIC is built into the motherboard and you can go into bios and disable it. The you can get an internal or external (USB) NIC.
@prema23 I have actuall saw and read that already and well…..it didnt solve much.
@karen The lights are blinking, but I still dont have internet access. I have changed cables, ports, even the network adapter! I have tried cables from other computers which have internet and have still had no success.
are you certain the problem is your end?
can you check on/with your provider to see if it is a problem their end?
Superantispyware has a network and browser manager, just in case you could look in control panel under repairs to see if it changed anything. Good luck , and I'll just add that a stopzilla advert claimed to have given me a scan in 10 seconds and found a trojan only they could remove if I bought it then, SCAM. If you haven't already bought it google it first.
I think its my computer….I'v had problems like this before but its usually a quick restart or a disabling, and enabling the network adapter to solve the problem. I have tried booting in safe mode but i dont know what i should do after that? I'm running chkdsk right now to see if it might fix the problem…..
So does anyone know why my computer cant:
"query TCP/IP settings of the connection"
Is the solutions to contact my ISP?
What that means is "is it an ethernet cable"?
Try uninstalling the drivers for it and see what happens.
If you're having TCP/IP issues, you should try resetting the protocol.
Here's an how-to from microsoft:
If that doesn't work, then I would suggest uninstalling the rpotocol completely and reinstall it via the network connection properties (or adaper properties). If the above doesn't work, I'll walk you through it. Keep us posted.
