Windows 7: Ethernet Connection

Ethernet Connection

Hi Folks. I can see all my dial up as well as my wireless connections in my Internet access section. However, my Ethernet connections are not shown there unless I'm connected with no option to turn them on or off. I added a shortcut to my desktop so not a big thing but I would like to have all my internet connections together.

Hi mitch, my window will not stay open to snip a pic of my connections and what's available. I included a pic of the short cut I use and my connections.

Please don't bump before looking at the time difference between us. In fact don't bump at all. it is gainst the rules of the Forum.
Didn't quite understand your post anyway . I asked you to post a screen shot of your Network and Sharing Centre Window and that's exactly what you sent. However I have never seen a connection called "Not Yours" and I cannot find any reference to it on the internet after extensive searching. Perhaps another member will come up with the answer, sorry!

Sorry about the Bump. "Not Yours" is the name of the wireless SSID. Like I say it's not a big thing as the Short Cut works great for the Ethernet connection. Just wish I could control it from the Internet access off the task bar.
Thanks

Looking at your network sharing center and looking at mine. The first thing I notice is your "View your active networks" is set to public. Try switching to "Home network" and see if that might make a difference. Here is a screen shot explaining the difference between them.

Hi Bassfisher and thanks for the reply. I changed my setup to Home Network and it asked me to turn IPv6 on. I checked all my settings and IPv6 is turned on everywhere. Following this I checked and confirmed all drivers were the latest. Sounds like I may have a software issue. I will likely try to delete the drivers for the network card and reinstall them later today if I get a chance. Thanks again.

This is a common problem, please follow the steps below to fix the IPv6 problem.

1. Temporarily disable Firewall and third party antivirus program on the computer for a test.

2. Verify relevant services
=========================
a. Click "Start", type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in Search Bar and press Enter.

Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

b. Right click the "Peer Networking Grouping" service and choose Properties.
c. Please check if the service is started; if not, please click the Start button and see if it works.
d. You may also choose Automatic next to Startup type.
e. Click OK.
f. Please repeat the above steps with another service: PNRP Machine Name Publication Service.

3. Modify IPv6 registry key to enable IPV6
==========================
a. Click Start, type regedit in Search Bar, and then click regedit in the Programs list.

Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.

b. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\TCPIP6\Parameters

c. Check whether the "DisabledComponents" registry key exists. If so, let's move on the next steps.

d. Double click the "DisabledComponents" registry key and modify the value to 0.

(If the key doesn't exist, please create the key above and assign the value 0)

e. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

Hi chev65, worked great for the IPv6 and setting up my network. Thanks!
Now if I can get my Ethernet connection to work with out using a short cut from the desk top I will be 100%.
Added to your Rep for the IPv6. Thanks again!
