Hi!

I just bought an Ethernet cable for my dorm room so I could connect directly from my PC to the modem.

I made sure I had all the LAN drivers and disabled my wireless adapter (ASUS, PCI-E).

When I look at my internet access bar it tells me "No Connections Available." When I troubleshoot it tells me my issue is that my Wireless Adapter is disabled.

I built this PC. What could be wrong? Are there any cables that need to be connected to the ethernet driver (from motherboard)?

Please help. The wireless here is terrible.

Did you install the ethernet controller drivers that came on the DVD that came with your motherboard. You will need that in order for your PC to utilize ethernet functions.

Hey avenseth12,

It worked! I really appreciate the help, my dorm is dedicated to computer science and I was somewhat embarrassed to ask any of the guys. Thanks!
