  1. Constant Disconnections through Ethernet [WiFi working fine on all devices]


    I'm at my wits end. I thought I was very computer savvy. I did. Until I started using Ethernet for 'faster, uninterrupted, more reliable connection'. Wi-Fi so far has not quit out [and that's usually the case] in the past week; but through Ethernet I've been getting cut off nearly EVERY 5 MINUTES.
    I've checked the cable [no cuts, openings, all fine, connected to router just fine]; checked the Routers inner workings [IPv4, IPv6, etc.] [[with help from a friend]] and everything was fine, the router itself, nor the cables, are the issue. It's all stemming from my computer itself! [seemingly] The Wi-Fi stuff works fine, but, as with Wi-Fi, I'm not getting the full connection I'm paying for [so trying to get Ethernet to help with that extra speed]… What am I supposed to do?
    I seriously need help; cause I can't even play games or talk on Discord without constant interruptions/disconnections... I'm nearly ripping the remaining hairs off my head clean off in frustration... :/
    [I'm not sure if anyone has had this issue, I've looked around and it seems that it's very miniscule]
    [There's also no Malware/Viruses on my system that could be the cause, either.]

    WIFI Works, Ethernet won't

    OK but why?

    NOT YELLING, JUST EMPHASIZING

    Please note, I installed the new Lynksis, it worked just fine for 3-4 days on both my MACBOOK PRO when in ethernet connect and the Dell, then the ethernet just quit working for both my MacBook Pro and Dell desktop. It did work, then just quit for no apparent reason. WIFi for iPhone, iPad, Andriod Phone, and when I set to wifi for my MacBook pro all work fine.

    Detailed history: I first noticed that on my Desktop dell that is CAT5 ethernet connected to the WIFI ROuter, that it stopped, no internet access. I began to trouble shoot, and turned off my WIFI on my MAcbook and it wouldnt work either, plugged into same router but different cat5 cable. At that time, all WIFI devices still worked. I figured that it must be the ethernet side of the WIFI router, so I replaced the router with brand new one. the Lynksys N900 listed in original thread. Ethernet and everything worked just fine for 3-4 days. But then ethernet quit, but wifi still works.

    Whatever the problem, it affects both my MacBook Pro and Dell with WIN 7. I'm guessing it is NOT a computer problem, if it is it is affecting both my Mac and Dell, separate cat 5 cables to same wifi router

    To remixedcat, I don't know for sure how to check IP settings, see above post, no damage apparent to anything.

    ETHERNET NOT WORKING - WIfi works fine .

    Hey Guys

    Recently I brought and built a computer. We have ultra-fast fibre internet and I recently tried to connect an Ethernet cable to this and is doesn’t work.

    I get “Unidentified network“ and “no internet” next to the Ethernet logo, with the yellow triangle after pluggin the cable in.

    My desktop connects absolutely fine to the wifi through a wireless adapter when I put this in the desktop but it doesn’t through the Ethernet cable.

    The Ethernet cable works absolutely fine on other devices as well and we have tried every port of the modem for both the desktop and other devices. It works in every port for other devices and none on the computer,
    hence it must not be a problem with the modem.

    I have also updated the Ethernet driver and it says it up to date also.

    Any help or steps to solve all of this would be greatly appreciated !

    Cheers

    Constant Disconnections through Ethernet [WiFi working fine on all devices]

    WIFI Works, Ethernet won't

    WIFI Works, not ethernet. I have a MacBook Pro and a Dell WIN 7. Ethernet stopped working, replaced WIFI Access point. I replaced the wifi access point, and for several days, it worked! But then about a week later, I can still connect wifi just fine with all devices, but not ethernet. Frustrated in Hobart*Bang Head :banghead:
