    Weird Internet connection problem


    by cantu.stephen ·

    I have a problem here what happens is that when I connect a RJ45 cable to my ethernet port the computer will pick it up and it will send packets but it will not recieve any packets and when I connect it to the other ethernet port the exact opposite will happen it will receive packets but it will not sent them and I am connecting directly to the cable(RoadRunner) modem. Can anyone help me out with this problem I have tryed just about everythig short of unistalling windows and upgrading my BIOS to get it to work. I will take any suggestions to get this to work.

    thank you

      Cross Over cable vs “regular” cable

      Some cable modems require a cross over cable and some don’t. Are you sure your cable is correct? Also many modems are USB capable as well. Is yours?

      I’d change out the cable for a xover or vise versa.

      Good luck.

          Looking at the connector from the wire entry end and with the flat side up (the side without the clip).

          Straight cable, both ends

          green/white, green, orange/white, blue, blue/white, orange, brown/white, brown

          Cross over cable, one end as above, other end

          orange/white, orange, green/white, blue, blue/white, green, brown/white, brown

          Hint: this question should have been posted in the Q&A section, not discussion.

        nope making and putting on the xover cable did not work and i am pretty sure i made them properly and the other thing i noticed is when I went in to the command promp thing and typed in ipconfig on one of the rows where it said ip adress it was just a jumble of letters numbers and % signs and when i try to repair it it says that it can not renew the IP address
