ok my asus has crashed. now I have an old desktop running XP which used to be connected has a second computer on internet via a splitter I dont even have anymore. As I need help and internet I tried to connect it with my same cable directly but it wont. I think it is because before it was as 2nd and now my regular normal wire cable is setup as 1st and only . not sure if it makes sense but anyway I dont know how to connect it to internet. it tells me a wire is disconnected and no it is the same wire then my asus computer and it is connected so its got to be the order it was on previously. anyone can tell me in detail how to fix this so I can use that computer on the ienternet to be able to get help and downloads software until I can fix my asus?running on XP and its is a wire cable internet (not wireless)

I'm afraid your post does not make any sense. You are not likely to get any helpful replies until you make it clearer.

Forget about trying to explain what you used to have connected, that's only confusing the issue.

Just say what you are trying to achieve, what internet equipment you have, and what type of cables you're using.

xp running sofware,
videotron cable
just want the computer to recognize this cable as it does not.
it keeps telling me it is not plugged and it is. BUT when it was installed this computer was plugged into a router and was on nmber 2.
is this why as there is no router anymore and only 1 cable direct to vidotron box it does not read interent?
how do i reset of make internet work on it?

You seem to post an awfully lot of questions & all of them are very difficult to understand.

The above clarification does little to clear up the original post. Your ASUS is not an issue & shouldn't be mentioned & you posted zero info about the "old desktop running XP".

If your Videotron cable modem only has a single network port, you can only connect one device to it at a time. You cannot use a splitter. If you want to connect multiple devices, you need to use a router. The router will have numerous network ports. If you use a wireless router, it will have numerous network ports plus wireless connectivity.

I'm guessing you only have a modem & don't have a router. If that's the case, just connect a network cable from the modem's network-out port to the network in-port on the "old desktop running XP". Make sure the computer's network port is enabled in the BIOS & that the network drivers are installed. And make sure you're using a network patch cable, not a cross-over cable.

So either your wiring needs to look like this: http://www.downloads.netgear.com/fi...

Either the cable is bad, it's not fully plugged in on both ends, you're using the wrong type of cable, or the network configuration settings are screwed up.

It is possible that your Asus NIC can tolerate the crossover cable and like routers and switches it senses the cable type and compensates but the NIC on your older XP machine does not have this capability. Purchase a new Patch cable (not expensive) and see if that helps the issue. If it does not then there is something wrong with the network card on the XP machine or it needs a driver update (probably an issue with the NIC card (or onboard NIC) which may have been why/when you stopped using it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Click on Start then run and paste the bold text below into the run box and hit enter:

cmd /c ipconfig /all >"%userprofile%\Desktop\ipconfig.txt

On the desktop there should now be a notepad document named ipconfig. Copy and paste the details into you next reply.

This will show us if there have been any unusual network settings applied.

P. S. It may be easiest to use a USB flash drive to save the line of script to carry across to the PC, and to copy and save the ipconfig file to move to the computer you are going to reply with.
