Windows 7: Local area connection enabled when it isnt

Local area connection enabled when it isnt

Has anyone ever seen this problem. I always log in and out using the local area connection. When i start up the pc and go into windows. If i click the local area connection it will bring up the status dialog and the connection is enabled when it isn't. I then have to close it and click on it again and the local area connection will connect.

The same also applies if you right click on the icon it will say it is enabled when it isn't. If you right click again it will say it is disabled. Does anyone know of a fix for this so i can get it started the first time and not the second time.

No,i didnt meant your post wokka, i mean the 2nd postwhich already deletedbecause it's spam contain. anyways back to your issue.

we need to set from the start ,so first,try ipconfig /release all Oripconfig /release *con*
Where *con* matches the connection to be released.
and then ..
  1. Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.
  2. Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, restart (power cycle) the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.
  3. Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.
  4. Replace the Network Interface Card.
feel free to ask
