Lan ports

  Craig-289433 10:53 17 Jun 03

Is there any way of testing Lan ports to see if they are working okay or not.

I connected my modem to the lan port on an Asus A7N8X motherboard with an ethernet cable, but still no response, upon phoning Blueyonder they reckon there is a problem with the Lan port (I don't really think there is, as both ports have the same problem.)

So would like to check the two ports as this is a brand new motherboard.

Make sure you install your motherboard LAN driver.

My motherboard has a LAn port and it wouldn't work properly after a reinstall of XP. I later discovered that my motherboard CD had LAN drivers on it. I installed the LAN driver for my MOBO and the port sprang into life.

Check your MOBO disk for any drivers.

Have you
Checked in bios they are enabled
Installed drivers[as Soy suggests]
Turn off your modem for a while then turn it back on

Look in either Device manager see if the network connectors are there.
Also try Control Panel/network connections

I have installed the drivers from the motherboards disk and still the same problem.

As I said don't think the Lan ports are the problem, but have no other way of testing them

They are in the Device manager and in the Network connections and will disable themselves when the ethernet cable is removed.

This is why I don't think there is anything wrong with the two ports but the modem just displays an ip code of 169.

Make sure you do not have Norton,Zonealarm etc running. check out the lan conx properties/tcp/ip properties---make sure it is set to obtain an Ip address automatically

Have you tried a different cable?



  Craig-289433 13:38 17 Jun 03

Haven't tried a different cable as only bought this one yesterday.

Is it the correct cable? Make sure it is not a crossover cable.

Also, do you have the MAC address of the LAN card registered with Blueyonder?
