    Wifi and Ethernet not working


    Recently i connected a 15 m ethernet from my router to my pc because my wifi extender wasn’t working. Until today when i noticed my ethernet wasn’t flashing that was going into my pc and my ethernet icon wasn’t there it was just a wifi symbol. I could still connect to the internet and access the browser. I then tried to fix it by resetting my pc, restarting the router and replugging in the ethernet cables. Now when i restart i get the ethernet icon with a red X which then changes to a wifi symbol with a white star above it. I can not access the internet at all. i’ve tried disconnecting and reconnecting. deleting the profile using cmd and it didn’t work. i’ve also tried restarting my router and still nothing, is there a way to fix this as my ethernet just appears orange in my router and nothing’s faulty as it worked previously. i’ve tried some solutions but nothing’s working.

    :)

    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.

    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:
