I wasn't getting a very good wireless connection to the internet so i decided to try a wired connection, I bought myself a 20m cat5e Ethernet cable plugged it into my computer and router. I disabled my wireless adapter and then nothing happened no connection whatsoever. I have restarted my PC router multiple times to no avail still absolutely nothing the only way to get an internet connection is by using my adapter.


For extra info about by adapters please ask if you need any more info:

No, I was told all I needed to do was plug and go which seemed to work last time.

You don't have to setup a wired connection in Windows. But look to make sure your wired adapter is on. In laptops it turns it off to save power when nothing is plugged into it. Fastest way to get it back on is reboot. Are you getting a link light on the router side? Is your nic getting a standard IP address a 192.168.x.x # and not a 169.x.x.x?

I just looked through your settings the nic is off or not showing settings in your ipconfig list.

The problem is it only displays my wireless adapter and no wired connection.

Is your laptop plugged in? I have had a wired adapter get stuck off when it is unplugged. Right click on my computer hit manage then device manager see if the nic is listed in the network area. if it is not right click on the computer name and click scan for new hardware.

Yep that fixed it it needed drivers. I had to do a ton of searches to find the correct drivers but now I've found them my speeds have shot through the roof!
