Hi there,

We recently rearranged our bookstore and moved our register from one wall to another. After moving it and plugging it all back in (to a different wall jack) I have had issues with connecting to the internet and therefore my card reader for credit cards is not working. When I attempt to run a credit card transaction I come up with this error message, "10065 a socket operation was attempted to an unreachable host." I have no internet connection whatsoever. When I attempted to make a new connection, It recognized that the network connection was disconnected at the local area connection, VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter. I have no clue what is disconnected or connected incorrectly.

Thanks for your help! I need this bookstore back up and in business!

Is the "different wall jack" connected to the same device (router? switch? ??) as the (I assume) previous "wall jack"?

Then maybe you have a defective cable or NIC. Have you checked the jack and cable with another computer?

Well, I am using the same cable I used to connect to the previous jack, where it worked fine. I will try the jack and cable with another computer.
