Windows 7: Ethernet cable not detected!!

Ethernet cable not detected!!

Hey everyone,

Since I'm on a campus, I'd like to download shit with a real nice speed, but the only problem is, when I connect my ehternet cable, it won't connect or something. If I go to the adapter settings, it says that the wireless network connection is fine, but the local area connection has no network cable (but in fact it is plugged in in the right way etc.)... So, I don't know if I need to update my drivers? And if yes, I don't really know how, so I hope anyone can help me...

If I need to post any screenshots or anything, let me know..

(Oh maybe an additional 'problem' , when I go to cmd and type ipconfig /all, I keep getting those messages "media disconnected" don't know if that's a problem or anything? maybe there's a simple solution )

Thanks in advance!!

1 Have you tried the Wire in another computer.
2 Is your Lan Disabled. Goto start and type view network, select "view network Connections"
3 Has it worked before.

1. Yes, but my laptop just gives the same error.. (But the cable did work at a friend's computer tho)
2. No, Lan is not disabled.. just has the red cross and says 'cable not detected'
3. Yes, at another friend's house I plugged in a diff cable and it worked.

Plug the cable into a different port on the router/modem. Or try a different cable.

Hmm, the trouble is 1. I have no router, I'm on campus network.. 2. I don't have another cable, lol.. I just got it from a friend, who has just used it, and it worked... :$

So is it just a connection straight out of the wall 1 port (ethernet)?

Uhhhm, there are two different ports.. next to each other.. the guy who just gave me the cable said to me; use the left port, the right one didn't work quite well for me..
I've tried both, but doesn't make any difference so far..

Can you take the laptop across the hall or something and test it in another ethernet port just to see if it your room that is bad.

It could be that your ethernet port is broken, the schools is or the cable just went bad...So until you can test it thats pretty much all we can do...
