Having problems with your Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook ?

IP connects... No internet.. Media Disconnected

\015 Just got a free laptop of a buddy of mine. He stepped on it.So I am not using a monitor hooked up to it to see anything.I did a full reformat to clean it from the prior users stuff and/or potential viruses.Loaded the drivers to the best of my ability from the HP website.The laptop is a compaq presario m2000. ... says so above the screen... If I do a model # check it comes up as Compaq Presario M2242AP Notebook PCso. after all that fun reinstalling. no net.I am pretty savvy in the ways of the computer, but this seems to be stumping me.My other comp works fine. So the connection have no problem.the ethernet line comes right in from outside. no router. that' just the way it's done here in south korea (I am over here teaching english)I tried uninstalling the drivers, and the adapters. nothing.I have an IP...and subnet mask, alocated by the DHCP all the exact same as my other comp (when it's jacked in... not using a router, so same ip).ipconfig /all lists the realtek adapter (lan) as "media disconnected"this computer also has wireless, and dialup.I am trying to get the ethernet connection to work.\015

Answers :

1. You never stated if you tried a different Ethernet cable, i will assume its the same cable as the computer that Does acquire an IP via DHCP and work on the net.

"this computer also has wireless" have you tested to see if you can acquire a IP via DHCP over the wireless?

If the device is showing up in Device Manager and etc. as you said it was, you need to visually inspect the RJ45 port on the laptop.

Do you see blinking lights at the RJ45 port?

Top left and Top right of where the port is plugged in, do you see two blank lights? Compare to picture above for reference. Not all laptops have lights on ethernet port.

Unplug the cable.
Using a flashlight or etc: Do any of the 8 pins look damaged?
Take a small flathead, try to push the port itself around. Maybe you will find that it is loose from the motherboard?

Lastly, if the wireless does work, and you tried all of the above without any success, and you REALLY want ethernet on the laptop, there is a $5 you can do. Buy a PCMCIA Expansion Card with a RJ45 port. 80% of it slides into the laptop, and boom, your done.


My adapter shows "media disconnected" as well. That's not an issue.
\015\012Try running ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew.
