  1. Hi, as mentioned in the title my Laptop's Ethernet LED lights are off and it says cable unplugged. Both cable and modem work fine, because I'm uing them now to post this, on another laptop.
    I've tried reinstalling the Ethernet drivers on my pc andn othing changed, the port is clean, I checked.

    My laptop is a Sony Vaio, SVE1511C1RSI, 3 years old, haven't used LAN connection for months because I had wifi, but before that, it worked just fine, though I did have "cable unplugged" errors before, but were somehow solved.
    Please help ;/

    Use CP->admin tools->Computer Mgmt->DeviceMgr
    expand [+] Network adapters
    * should not show any red / yellow flags; if so, the driver is wrong
    right-click on the LAN adapter
    * make sure it is ENABLED
