I recently made my computer and yesterday i shifted places and thus connected a Ethernet cable since the new place is much closer to the Main modem...( i have been running on wireless upto now)....


I connected the wire to the ethernet port on my motherboard.. which happens to be Asus P5N E SLI

And i see a red and orange light.... but when i checked on the moden it was green... their is one more computer which is connected to the modem which happens to the be the main computer.

THINGS i noticed:

i tried fixing it my self but to no avail... i did notice i have three lan connections under " SHOW ALL CONNECTIONS

1. 1394 connection 2
2. Local area connection 3 ( Microsoft loopback adapter)
4. Local area connection 4 ( Nvidia nforce networking controller)

All of them seem to be firewalled...( so i tried removing the firewalll and still ti wudnt connect)

i even tried going to internet options>connections>lan settings> and clikin on detect proxy aautomatically..it still wudnt work

i also tried reinstallin the asus nvidia ethernet controllers... but in vain :)

PLz help im currently running on wireless and its very slow.... and keeps disconnecting randomly preventing me from getting any work done :)( :)((((

i would very much appreciate ny helpppp

Turn your computer off completely. Make sure the cable is connected between your computer and the router.

Start your computer.
Go to Start
click Run
type: cmd
hit enter
in the black box that comes up type the following: ipconfig/all >c:\ipconfig.txt
hit enter
once it completes, Go to Start
My Computer
double click C:\
open the file named ipconfig.txt
Paste the results in a post please.
