No Local Area Connetion on Acer Aspire One
I have an Acer Aspire One that I've been using for a few months now with a wireless connection. I want to hook it up at work to the router with a lan line connection to the Acer's network card. When I plug in the connection I get nothing. The network card is lit up with the green light on the right side and the orangish light on the left blinks as if it's trying to communicate, however, under network connections I get nothing. In the help section of the Acer, it tells me this Local Area Connection should be automatically setup when I plug in. I'm running XP Home Edition. What am I missing here?

If you use Wifi your Local Area Connection could be disable, go to Control Panel\Network Connections right click Local Area Connection and see if it gives you the option "Enable".

Hope this helps.

Local Area Connection
Jared,

Thanks for the response. Part of the problem is that when I go into my network connections, I don't find the "Local Area Connection" Icon. There's only a "Wireless Network Connection" under "Lan or High Speed Connection Category. And up above that Category I have a "Internet Gateway" category and it just shows a "Internet Connection" Icon. This connection seems to just be a duplicate for the Wireless Internet Connection.

I think this is part of the problem. My other laptop has a "Local Area Connection" Icon and I can connect it by the Lan Line with no problems.

Have you tried using the connection wizard to setup a new connection?

In device manager,take a look at network adapters.
You should see maybe:
1394/network connectio/wireless network connection
The network connection,if you see it,should be your lan capable adapter.If there,drill into it to make sure,as LADON said,it is enabled,and no error indications.
