I am building webform application  using VS2012EXPRESS. I want to implent the sqlmembership for this. I installed all the necessary objects on my db server.
when i try test the connect by going to Project ,ASP.NET Configuration,provider tab.
Click on test i receive this error:
Could not establish a connection to the database.
If you have not yet created the SQL Server database, exit the Web Site Administration tool, use the aspnet_regsql command-line utility to create and configure the database, and then return to this tool to set the provider.
What is the cause? i have attached my webconfig
CONFIG.txt

I don't think your connection string in the web.config is correct. All you have is:
connectionStringName="db_connection"

You need something that defines the connection more definitively:

http://www.connectionstrings.com/sql-server-2005

http://www.connectionstrings.com/sql-server-2012

i.e.
Server=myServerAddress;Database=myDataBase;User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;

etc. Review the link I provided to see how this is done.

i definately have a correct connection string. here is it:
 <connectionStrings>
    <clear/>
    <add name="db_connection" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" connectionString="Data Source=myipaddresshere;Integrated Security=true;Initial Catalog=aspnetdb;User ID=sysad;Password=abc@123"/>
  </connectionStrings>

Yeah. You're correct. Your connection string is probably fine; although, I don't see a database defined in your connection string.

I've implemented a custom role provider, so I have some idea of how role and membership providers are done. Basically, the provider maps to some database schema that needs to be pre-set. You don't state whether or not you ran the aspnet_regsql.exe tool. Did you?

Assuming you did, then you should have a set of membership tables created for you when you run this exe. Those tables will be what you're going to access the database.

Does the aspnetdb exist?
