network cable is unplugged

by starikov / November 1, 2005 2:03 AM PST

I have Hawking HWR54G router that displayes message "network cable is unplugged". I though that problem appeared because of my modem because router is relativeley new, however problem with router and not with modem. Is there something i should do in setting to fix that or something else. So far i update my firmware and router was working good but only for one day. Problem is back what should i do ?

I looked at the Hawking and can't see where it could display such a message. Are you sure you didn't mean that this message is on the PC?

I ask because there is so little information about a PC in your post. In fact, no PC is mentioned.

Does the network work in spite of the message?

so far in order to fix problem i upgraded firmware and reset router to factory standrads. What i found interesting is that computer with router have error that i posted above and another computer with adapter that shares interenet got absoluteley no problems and have acess to internet.Computer with router when i went to internet displayed message to work offline or to connect and i pressed connect it start working but i know for a fact that this is not normal. Computer with cable internet should not required to press connect and before installation of the router i had no problem with network cble being unplugged. What should i do guys ?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
