Hello, sorry if this the the wrong section, as I didn't see any others that would fit the description.

But the jack for the local area connection in my computer does not work, usually when you plug in a cable it lights up, it doesn't. I've tried different cables, and system restored but none of that seems to be working. Any trouble shootings to do?

Maybe their's a prob with the network card. Which OS are you using?

I'm using Windows Vista 64x. Model a6500f

Have you tried going into device manager and seeing what is there for the network card? It is usually under network adaptors, there maybe an exclaimation mark next to it.

If there is a problem with the network device then you may have to buy a new one.

- Let us know the situation.

Nothing right next to it, when I connected the computer to the 2wire modem, it wouldn't install the drivers because it couldn't find the right software...

Try finding the correct driver and install that.

If this doesn't work you may need a new one.
