I have two BT vision boxes. Sometimes you have to use the Ethernet cable when rebooting the vision box to set it up. You are supposed to use the wall plugs with Ethernet cable from back of BT box to wall plug, but this can play havoc with the BT vision box down stairs, so the trick is to not use wall plugs but to use the Ethernet cable via laptop when rebooting the vision box as you only need the Ethernet cable plugged into set up the box.
Ive been doing the above method for years now without problem, but recently I did a system recovery on my Laptop and now when i plug in the Ethernet cable, it says on the desktop icon, limited to no connectivity.
Can someone help me set up this connection again? Basically it will be same as setting up a local area connection as that's what it was before, but i don't know how to set that either.
So if you can tell me how to give a local area connection, connectivity, it should solve my problem.
