Windows 7: Local Area Connection Network Cable Unplugged

Local Area Connection Network Cable Unplugged

Trying to connect Lenovo 3000 G430 4152 Laptop using windows 7 32 bit to a wireless network

Wifi lists the available wireless networks but fails to connect. However, this laptop gets connected to
Internet through dongle. And another laptop gets connected to this home wireless setup with no hazzles.

Coming to this problematic lenovo laptop: there was no problem connecting this laptop through wireless a few days back but today it is giving this trouble - Network connections tags Local Area Connection as "Network Cable Unplugged"

I've downloaded drivers from Lenovo website, but no result.

Attached screenshots.

Thanks for your help!

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Might be worth to try something simple to start off, it won't hurt to do a System Restore. Go back to a point when your Xbox was able to connect to your laptop.

Verify that all your Network Services are Started from Control Panel=> Performance and Maintenance=> Admin Tools=> Services. Check the Dependencies Tab as well and make sure that the Services are all Started.
COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)

Apologize for the late reply, I was gone due to a very hectic schedule. See if there's any Mac filtering enabled from the router setting, try to disable it for now. For your wireless issue, try changing the wireless mode from the router to G or B/G? Also, try changing the wireless security (WPA, WPA2, etc...).

If above recommendation is unsuccessful, you may also reset the TCP/IP and Winsock.

Click on Start=> All Programs => Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.
Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log press enter
Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log press enter
Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog press enter
Restart the computer after.

Hi buddy....

Tried your suggestion on resetting TCP/IP and Winsock, but skipped suggested steps for router settings as present configuration works well for another laptop running window 7.

At present, dongle lets me stay connected with internet. Looking forward to the solution for this irksome trouble and to using wifi.

Many thanks for your patience!
