Having problems with your Dell Latitude E6400 Laptop ?

Dell E6400 onboard NIC cannot get network connection - "A Cable Is Unplugged". The laptop is undocked with CAT5 cable firmly attached.


Answers :

I'd suggest updating the NIC driver in Device Manager. But, the message "A Cable is Unplugged" tells me that the NIC port, the CAT5, or the port where is is connected to your modem/router may be faulty. Try moving the cable to a different port on your modem/router, first. Then, try another CAT5. If still a problem, the NIC port is probably faulty. Hope this helps.
