HI there ......

:thumbsup: This is just about how I feel. I have had a router hooked up to my computer for a bout 1 year because i was going to add on other house computers to share the internet and printer....... Everything was going good untill I unhooked everything and moved the computer to the other side of the room and I hooked everything back up. The "local area connection" always has "limited or no conectivity".

I have tried to disable it but than I cannot access the net....(don't even have the router hooked up now) and have my internet running through the "broadband" section of Network Connections but this local area connection always is running and always has limited or no conectivity.

One more thing when I delete this specific connection everytime I restart it comes back and its name has changed and now I am up to ""Local Area Connection 6""

Any help would be very helpfull........

Hold off posting a log, since this seems to be a hardware problem caused by physical changes to your computer's location, etc.. Wait 'till some knowledgeable members suggest solutions first.
Thanks,
John

when you reinstalled youer LAC did you make sure the workgroup was the same as the other computer(s)? Does the computer have a different name from the other computer(s)? Is the NIC wired or wireless? Once you have the NIC setup delete all of the other LOCs. Shuteverything down, the modem, the router, and all comuters for at least one minute. Start by turning the modem on and wait for one minute. Next turn the route on and wait one minuter. Now turn each computer on. Go to the problem computer, and if it still does not have internet do the following.
Start>Run>CMD>C:\ipconfig /release
When the C: reappears type
C:\ipconfig /renew
Exit and see if you have internet.


EDIT: typo

THe problem started when I unhooked the computer just to move it and I hooked everything back up. After I had the problems I took the router out and put my DSL straight from the computer and everything is fine but I get two connections in the system tray one once I start up LAC6, and than one when I connect my Symaptico DSL....

I am not that computer literate (but I know enough to get me by) so I will try to post some screen shots of what I am talking about..........

Picture says 1000 words..........

Posted Image




The arrows show what I am talking about.......windows can never Accquire a address for this connection, and if I try to delete this connection when I restart it will be back as local area connection 7... :thumbsup:


I really don't care at this time if I have the router or not I just want this fixed.......it has been bugging me for about 4 months..........

Sorry.Network Interface Card. The port on your computer that plug into the router. Is it onboard (built into the motherboard), USB, PCI (install in one of the slots at the back of your computer)?

What does Device Manager say about your network card?
Go to Control Panel.
Double click the 'System' icon.
Click the Hardware tab.
Click the Device Manager button.
You will see a list of hardware devices recognised by your system.
Do any of them have a red or yellow symbol after the name?
If so look at the properties of the device indicated (by double clicking on it).

So what port does the DSL modem connect to? I would have thought it would plug in to the same ethernet port you would use for your Local Area Network. You also have a Network Bridge showing, what's that for?

Soltek QBIC, Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, ATI Radeon 9600XT 256MB, Netgear 54Mb/s WAP, ridiculously expensive Satellite Broadband
Windows XP Home SP2, Trend Micro Internet Security, Firefox, Thunderbird, AdAwareSE, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster, A-squared Free, Ewido Security Suite.

As for the NIC it is onboard

There is only one ethernet port in the computer and I was only going to run 2 or 3 computers through the router to the internet and to share the printer..........


As for the Network Bridge.....????? no clue this was my first try at setting up a network and even with that I needed someone to finish and install everything...........



I always thought that there was too much in the Network Connections but really I don't know that much about networks......(That is why I am here :thumbsup: )

From my son's system (an HP 750n), the bridge appears to connect the 1394 Connection with the Local Area Connection. On your system, you can see that the 1394 is bridged - and once you get connectivity on the Local Area Connection it'll probably show as bridged also.

If you're not using the 1394 (also known as FireWire) to connect, then disable the bridge (don't get rid of it, because it'll respawn on you). You can also disable the 1394 to free up some resources.

Bridges (from my limited knowlege) permit you to use 2 connections on the computer to access the web. On my other son's system there was a bridge between the dialup modem and the LAN connection. It caused so many problems that I found the advice to disable the dialup and the bridge - and once I did it, it fixed the problems with my LAN connection.

Well thankyou for that usasma, that is one thing that I can do.........I only use the 1394 to connect the digital cam.

Now I guess my main question is do I really need both of the other connections since I am not running the network right now and I am not even using the router.


If I don't how do I get rid if the the LAC and just keep the Broadband, Alos all thoes other connections that are not even connected do I really need thoes..........

You can't "get rid" of the LAC - they're based on the hardware. If you delete them, they'll just want to reinstall at the next reboot.

So, what you can do is disable them by right clicking on the connection and select "Disable" - and, if your internet connection stops working, you'll know that you've disabled something critical. In that case, go back and re-enable it (it may take a reboot for the changes to take effect).

You know the home office network setup thing windows has? Well evertime I run it the limited thing goes away. I guess all your computers and connections get redetected or something. :thumbsup:
