i have had wireless internet for a couple of years. but during online gameing there are connection interuptions. so i decided to make it hardwire connection. now here my problem. it says that something is unplugged but i have double checked and everything is plugged in fine. it says lan dissconnected. i do not want lan but i do want internet. thank you.
Where is your modem plugged into?
The Ethernet Port?
the modem is down stairs. i have the hardwire connected to the router. yes it is plugged into the ethernet port.
i just need to know how to get to internet without the lan stuff. just internet. do i need to somehow set it up. new connection or something???
Sometimes Windows will tell you that "a network" cable is unpluged, or sometimes it will tell you that a "LAN" cable in unplugged. In any case, it means the same thing.
I'm a bit confused that you say that you're hardwired (ie, connected via directly via cable) into your router, but you say it's downstairs. Have you run the network cable through the walls?
yes its running through the wall.
Turn any firewalls off.
Make sure you set up any networks, install network devides (your Ethernet Card/Port) and make sure your modem is recognized.
