sorry this might be a little bit short on details as i have had to type this three times now due to a slow connection. i am trying to set up an Ethernet cable that runs to my bedroom from my living room. i am using a cat 6 Ethernet cable that is about 70 feet long. i hooked everything up and i am told that i am connected to an unidentified network, and that i have "no internet". i open up the network and sharing center and diagnosed the problem and i am told that the Ethernet doesn't have a valid ip configuration. i tried ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew in my command prompt and i am told that no operation can be performed while its media is disconnected. i also looked at all my other adapters in my command prompt and their media state is also disconnected. please help. i am building a desktop soon, and i would really like to have the Ethernet cable in my room so that i don't have to buy a WiFi card

Try re enabling your connection  with this :


Please click Start > Run, type inetcpl.cpl in the runbox and press enter.
Click the Connections tab and click the LAN settings option.
Verify if "Use a proxy..." is checked, if so, UNcheck it and click OK/OK to exit.
Now check if the internet is working again.


OR.....If you are using Windows 7..
Download  Click Me
then...Right click on winsockfix.bat    and then click on Run As Administrator

Lets start with some basics

 

Are you connected to a router?

Are other devices connected to the same router and are they working fine?

Is this a store bought cable or did you make it?

Is it a laptop or a pc you are trying to connect via the 70ft cable?

Do the port lights go on at each end when connected by cable?
