hi everybody,

I have a d-link 514 router, which I connect through a cable to my desktop. but it keeps saying that "a network cable is unplugged". I do have wireless internet in my laptop with the router at the same time. but if I connect the cable to my ethernet port in my laptop, I get the same as in the desktop.
I don´t think it´s the cable, as I already got a new one.
thanks for your help!

Some tips:

- Try to connect to other router's LAN port, sometimes the problem can due to faulty LAN port.
- Make sure you have installed network adapter driver correctly and it works well.
- Ensure the network adapter was not disabled.

Hope this helps.

I have had the same problem and spent days scouring Google and trying any suggestion that I could find. Last night I found a post from 2002. It seemed ridiculous but I gave it a shot. PROBLEM SOLVED.

1.) Shut dowm your PC.
2.) Unplug the power cord.
3.) If you have a laptop, remove the battery as well.
4.) Walk away from the problem for at least 30 minutes.
5.) When you return, reconnect battery and power cord.
5.) Start as usual.
6.) If this solves the problem, take 20 minutes and post this to all of those message boards that you didn't find the solution to.

This fix appears to work for any OS/MOBO/NIC.

What causes it? I don't know.

Have a great day! :)

I used this fix too. Spent 3 days working on this issue & the fix was just this simple!!
