"A network cable is unplugged"
    #4440542 - 07/23/05 12:30 AM (12 years, 30 days ago)

That is the message I get when attempting to connect to my "Local Area Connection" in Network Connections. I called my ISP and they said something about ordering a new modem, when I described what my DSL modem lights were doing. But online I've also read someone was told it's a problem with the PC, with nearly the same description, from my ISP.

This is what I see in my device manager.

It could be your isp, if you are getting data transferred through your 1234 connection, and not your local, or the other way around.

But you have that X in your device manager, which means, that either your device is disabled, or needs drivers. I would look into this first.

reinstall drivers

I run into this question almost every week. Some jackass freaks out and says their computer's broken because of this message... perhaps scrap your network and recreate it over the phone with your isp. If they say no, or refuse to, then fuck something up and call back. Mwahaha.

Asides from that...

The network card is disabled. What happens when you try to enable the device at the device manager ?

It would attempt to enable, but couldn't. It works now, after my ISP sent me a new DSL modem. I figured since my computer picked it up as a supposed problem with my hardware in my device manager, it was a problem with my computer.

Thanks for trying to help.
