Hello my names Justin, having issues hard wiring to my laptop when. I click network and sharing there is only the option of wireless it used to be a local network option to prioritize for using hard wire connection but it suddenly disappeared and i can't get it back. how can i restore the local connection so i can hard wire again cause its only allowing me to connect wirelessly even when i have modem plugged into my laptop. Using windows 7 op system any help will be appreciated.

Do you have your LAN card listed under Device Manager -> Network Adapters (it should not have any yellow marks next to it)?

I can't think of any easy and cost-effective way to fix nic in a laptop.
I would suggest getting USB LAN adapter instead.

Do you have any unrecognized devices in DevMngr? The ones with yellow exclamation mark.

So try to install the driver. If your laptop manufacturer does not have a separate driver for it maybe it is included in the chipset, so install those.

The NIC is probably dead, but it's worth attempting a driver install.
