My computer only tries to identify through Ethernet for a second before stopping, help?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My computer won't identify my Ethernet connection. I know it's not the wire because no wireless connections are showing up either. I installed both LAN driver (from the mobo CD drivers) and the PCI Wireless adapter's driver (since I reformatted my new computer). Anyone know what's up? Both my laptop (wireless) and spare computer can connect no problem ... the spare was where the new computer used to be (and vise-versa) so the wires should not have anything to do with anything.

The LAN connection shows identifying every so often and stops right away if that helps any of you. I also tried unplugging my router and my modem's power for 10 seconds or so - nothing has changed. I run on a static IP so I thought the unplugging would fix this issue...

I am currently reading http://www.overclock.net/t/684875/a-guide-to-the-interworkings-of-the-internet if I can find any common mistakes.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

First of all, do you for sure know what you're doing by using static IP's? That sounds like a huge red flag to me. (Basically, the computer can't talk to the router.) Run "ipconfig /all" in your command prompt and post what comes up. That would be a good place to start.

And just a question, but what's the reasoning behind the static IP?

I'm currently at work but I'll update you later tonight what's posted on ipconfig /all.

I believe it's my Internet provider that's keeping me on a static IP if I'm not mistaken.

Your static IP should only be your outbound, just check that you aren't using pre-set adapter static IP in the IPV4 section of the properties tab of your adapter as well perhaps. If it helps i had the exact same issue on my laptop which was running windows 8, plugged it in with 2 different ethernet cables and it wouldn't work, i then went to device manager and uninstalled the lan adapter (but didn't select the option to delete possible drivers) and then did the scan for hardware changes and it magically re-installed the adapter and worked perfectly, also did the same with my wireless adapter for said laptop when i wanted to assign a static IP to port forward to the router with it, it refused to open the IPV4 section until i uninstalled the adapter, and then it re-installed the drivers, and it simply worked. This was my means of fixing it, and it's no guarantee but i hope it manages to help you solve the issue.
