Windows 7: Can't Detect LAN Wire Even After Plug in Cable

Can't Detect LAN Wire Even After Plug in Cable

Hi

Can an expert out there tell me how to resolve this problem:

I plug in a LAN cable to my laptop but apparently Win 7 can't detect it. However it does detect the wireless connect and automatically connect to it.

Please help. I'm a noob when coming to Win 7 and Computer stuff.

Thanks.

By the way, I'm using a Linksys router. Please let me know if I need any other information to help resolve the problem. Thanks

Are you certain that the driver for the LAN connection is installed?

Either Windows update or the manufacture of your laptop should have a driver for the LAN connection.

How can I do a verification to see is the driver there? Can you kindly share with me? Thanks

You would normally go into Device Manager under network adaptors, look for the adaptor that has the problem and see if the driver is installed for that adaptor. Without system specs my hands are tied here.

Is the LAN controller enabled in the BIOS?

Try this.

Click on start - Type this "Network Connections" and select the topmost "View Network Connections"

If you see 1 icon the Lan is not enabled, if you see 2 select the one that is lables "Network Connecton" and right click and enable.
