Can't See LAN in network properties - tells me bridge is disconnected?
Posted on 2004-10-07
Hi, Im setting up a network at a relative's house and we have a problem with one of the computers.
After installing the router correctly and getting internet to work on this computer, I tried installing on the much worse off other computer - to no avail.
So, I go to network connections inside of control panel - and to my surprise - it is COMPLETELY blank. Now, Ive networked quite a few computers and have NEVER seen that before, so after being confused for a bit I decided to try a new network wizard. Well, I was zoomin through it to the point where it checks how you are connected to the LAN, and it said that one or more of your network connections are disconnected. I checked, and they werent. I looked at the screen, and the one it said was disconnected was a Network Bridge between the 2 ethernet ports.
Well, I got it to go through the connection wizard and it restarted, but... nothing in the network connections.
Ive tried it about 5 times now and Ive tried a myriad of other things - anyone have any suggestions?
