When my cable modem is connected to my PC there are no link lights on either the modem or the PC (I've tried both networking ports on the PC). It was working fine for the 6 months I've had the PC. There are no link lights at anytime, before the Operating System has booted.
- When I connect the PC and laptop via networking ports, there are link lights on both, and I can connect to the other machine.
- When I connect the modem to the laptop via networking ports. there are link lights on both, and I can access the Internet.
I was previously using a router, but the when the Internet wouldn't work this morning I disconnected it. So the above 3 connections I mentioned are all direct connections.
Does anyone know what the issue is, as if the network ports on the PC were faulty then I wouldn't be able to connect to the laptop and if the modem was faulty I wouldn't be able to use the Net from another machine?
Thankyou in advance for your assistance.
