    How to test a PC LAN port ?

    Hi everyone.
    My PC's LAN port seems not to work.

    It doesn't respond when I connect the DSL modem. And the green light of the port is dead.

    What is wrong ?? How do I test it ??

    Re: LAN port

    remove the modem cable fro lan socket.
    .
    first make a 'loop back ' test for the lan block.

    if it is oK, then connect and test access the modem .
    if no response ,
    it is faulty modem.

    Have you tried a cross-over cable?

    LAN port

    check out: http://sites.google.com/site/kalman/...trj-45loopback
    then ping 127.0.0.1
    If thats good try a new cable, make sure the new cable matches the original; straight-thru or crossover and if that doesn't work replace the modem?

    Good Luck!!!

    Re: LAN port

    hi everyone,
    firstly testing the lan port with loopback doesnot work..i mean in most cases it gives a positive reply. the loopback fails only under certain conditions like tcp/ip stack failure. please check the configuration for the lan port.

    Try in google. Write "LAN drivers" :)

    first check whether the nic is installed properly and the Drivers....
    assume that u r using the windows os
    my computer > rightclick>properties>Hardware>Device Manager>
    check whether any red color or yello color symbol is displayed withe ur "Network adapters"
    if any......... check installation problem with your lan card

    if the nic is okey then check the cable and the dsl modem
