The IP address being assigned to that network interface is a automatic private internet address (apipa) which is used when configured for DHCP but cannot for one reason or another successfully communicate with the DHCP server. It is not a routable address, by design, which is why you can't connect to the internet on that PC. I'm not sure if you are trying ...

Given that your pc gets a 169.254.x.x address means it cannot receive an IP from the DHCP server. This can have several meanings. The DHCP server is not working properly or it cannot hand out any leashes because the range is full. The PC does not make contact with this particular DHCP server. This is likely due to a cable problem. If another DHCP server ...

It's wrong. It'll have signal integrity problems unless pins 4&5 are a twisted pair, and pins 3&6 are a twisted pair.

The answer is "simplicity". You absolutely can connect your Galileo to your laptop, but you have to set your laptop up in order to do so, your router on the other hand is already set up correctly. Essentially the Galileo is going to be expecting a DHCP server at the end of the ethernet cable, without this is will fall back to some link-local address in the ...

Windows drivers can be finicky. Open Device Manager and expand the Network Adapters field. Right click the Ethernet adapter and select Uninstall. In the confirmation dialog, select the option to delete the driver before clicking OK. Once it's uninstalled, right click anywhere in Device Manager and click Scan for hardware changes. Let Windows reinstall the ...

A device driver is used so the Operating System can communicate with the hardware. It is logical to understand that, in order for the manufacturer to be able to develop the hardware, and to test it, they also have to interface and thus work with the device driver part. Does this automatically mean they will provide the driver? No. Because most hardware use ...

Interesting experiment. I have not conducted this experiment myself. If I where to try it, I would look at this picture and come to the conclusion that A "straight" cable: Tap1, I would use RX(orange). Tap2, I would use TX(green). If it is a "crossover" cable: Have look at the diagram. Just as Jarmund points out, it is very likely you will get ...

When pinging in Windows, General Failure usually indicates that the NIC hardware link is down altogether. I would check the cabling between the computer and the router. A pinched wire, broken clip, bent pins, or a loose connector could cause this. Try using a different port on the router if one is available. If it behaves the same, you're going to need ...

I am not sure if this gonna be helpful ! As far as I am concerned, you should first consider the driver issue cause an old versioned NIC may have impact on this, if it is the problem maybe you should upgrade it. Note that you say that the cable is not an issue, you'd better use a cable tester app in the BIOS, if it comes back with errors on the cable, your ...

Your post title asks how to delete, but your questions asks what are they/what is the difference AND How to delete? SO typically limits to ONE question per post as the answer can vary greatly if you ask multiple questions. To Delete --> you should be able to right click on it, and choose delete from the list. What are they --> The Realtek PCIe FE Family ...

What you suggested will not work. What people usually do is use a Ethernet to USB printer server such as this example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833139009


1

That will not work. USB and Ethernet are not the same and you cannot convert one to the other directly. You will need a USB to Ethernet converter, like this.


1

No... These USB-Ethernet connectors require an Operating System that handles the network connection on the device in which you plug the USB side. That is the printer in your case, which doesn't have an operating system capable of handling this.

I don't have enough rep to comment, or would have. A lot of the discussion is beyond my knowledge level, so this is a very basic suggestion. At the router/switch, reverse the cable connections corresponding to the good and bad PCs. That tests the cables in combination with the ports on the router in a way I don't think the other answers did.

The most obvious sounds to me being the network cable. Just because it worked BEFORE and doesn't now, does not rule out a coincidence of errors. turn off static IP, you'll want it dynamically assigned, even if only for getting it up and running unplug and reseat your network cable, even re-terminate if necessary. Change it out even. (are you getting ...

a while ago i had similar issue with my motherboard network, fortunately i had dual network so i was able to switch between them it kept happening so after a while i did this: 1. shutdown computer 2. remove power cable 3. remove motherboard battery 4. wait 5 minutes 5. put everything back together 6. try again for me, doing this, worked maybe ...

What you're doing here, in effect, is attaching another NIC in parallell. I have seen hardware marketed as "ethernet splitters" based on the same concept, and they work, to some degree. However, you should be aware that they greatly reduce the effectiveness of the cable, as the pairs are no longer properly twisted and are therefore more susceptible to ...

If you want to set up a transparent proxy, you need a proxy server software that supports it. That’s because a “captured” connection is different from how the browser would normally talk to a (regular) proxy. First, you install your proxy, Squid in this case, and verify it works as a regular proxy. Then, you set it to accept captured connections: ...

A yellow triangle means that your drivers and hardware are working properly. The problem is with the IP, your PC is not able to obtain an IP address to assess internet. You can check it by opening cmd and type ipconfig command and hit enter. Check for ip v4 address as well as v6. If they exists then it's ok. Otherwise type ipconfig /renew or /release to ...

Your Firewall is configured to block all ICMP packets, as a result you can not send ICMP echo request packets to external networks. To resolve this issue you need to contact the network administrator and request him to disable this firewall rule. Additionally try resetting cable modem.

A modem is provided by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) and provides a network access to the internet. A router is the "traffic director" of a network. It takes information provided by the modem or ONT and routes it to the various devices that are connected, and creates internal IP address for the devices so they can be accessed. A switch is used to ...
