    Ethernet cable settings

    Hi Campbell,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Please reply to the follow questions to get a better understanding on the issue:

    • What is the model number of your laptop?
    • Do you have a yellow exclamation on the network icon after connecting the cat 7 cable?

    However, you can follow the troubleshooting steps from
    Fix network connection issues in Windows
    .

    Also, I suggest you to check the laptop manual or laptop manufacturer to know whether the Ethernet port of your laptop supports cat 7 cable.

    Hope it helps.
