It was a HP DV5000T and I didn't have time to fix that. I know a PCI Ethernet card or 5 or 10 bucks would fix it and since these were gifts I did not fix the issue.
There is another issue that can cause this and it happens when folk hard assign IP addresses. I don't see the details here to talk about that but as a networker, this should be enough for the tech support to deal with that.
So, I don’t really know what to say I just know I don’t really have the ability to connect to ethernet. I can connect to wifi but playing League of Legends on wifi is not really a good idea unless its veryy good wifi which I do not have. I am trying to be able to connect to ethernet but it isn’t working though I was able to connect like a month ago but I’m not sure what happened. I also live on campus. I think the problem has something to do with my network adapters, drivers, or maybe updates? Although I think that my drivers and adapters are already updated to the most recent versions but who knows I can be wrong.
If anyone has any solutions they would be appreciated.
TLDR: No ethernet connect but I do have wifi. Settings and information in the image linked. I live on campus if that matters at all so I don't have access to the router or whatever.
