or straight through cable. So next time you pick one of these puppies you

9 Troubleshooting Steps to Resolve the network cable is unplugged error.
9 troubleshooting steps I go through to determine the source of the problem
and resolve it, often within minutes.
1.Make sure you can see two lights on around the network cable.
On the computer side follow the network cable into your network card which
is usually on the back of your computer. The port looks like an oversized
telephone port. Notice there are 2 lights on either side of the port. If it is
functioning correctly you will see the lights around the cable. The color
of the lights will vary but you will definitely be able to notice when it lights up, trust me.
2. Make certain the network cable is plugged in securely to the computer.
If there are no flashing lights there is a problem. But before we go any further
make certain the cable is plugged in securely. Just unplug the network cable and
plug it in until you hear a click. Did the lights around the cable on the network card
3. Check the router side.
Remember the router is the device that the internet service provider gave you when
they setup your account. If you are not sure what the router looks like or where
it is contact your service provider. There should be a light on the router where
your network cable plugs into it. Check to determine if the network cable
from your computer is plugged into the router? If not plug it in. Does
the light where the network cable connects come on? If so rejoice and
reboot your computer. You should be good to go.
4. Make certain there is power going to the router.
If it is plugged in and there are no lights check and make certain the
router is powered up.You should see at the very least a power light.
If there is no power then power it up. Does the light where the network
cable connects come on? If so reboot and you should be good to go.
If the light where the network cable connects doesn’t come on check the
cable to make sure it is in securely. Once again just unplug the network
cable and plug it back in until you hear a click. Does the light where the
network cable connects come on? If so reboot and you should be good to go.
5. Try to get the internet.
If the network card lights are on and the router light where the network cable
connects is on try to go to a web page. If you cannot get there then contact your
service provider. The service provider is the person who you get your internet
service from. Just get an old bill, look them up in the phone book or get on
the internet. Tell them what is going on and what you have done to
troubleshoot the problem. Also make certain they are not going to charge
you for anything prior to talking to them. They shouldn’t especially because
in this circumstance it is most likely a result of their equipment or network.
Although service providers almost never will admit fault.
6. Make sure both devices are powered up.
If neither light is on. Try a new network cable. If you need to go to the store
ask for a Category 5 straight through network cable

Today, when many people think laptop, they think “wireless”. No doubt people
want to make sure that their laptop computer will be able to access the Internet
with a wireless connection. Many try to account for this by ensuring that their
laptop has potential upgrade options, such as room for an expandable PC card

format as the replacement to linear cassette. It allowed for recordings
from mics, analog, and optical sources.
In 1992 Sony launched the MiniDisc (MD) as an attempt to replace audio
cassette technologies. The MiniDisc was developed based on magneto-optical
storage media that allowed for writing and rewriting of stored information.
The fact that the data could be quickly accessed without the need to scroll through
an entire tape made this technology very promising for ease of use over the cassette.
was used to allow the audio files to fit on the MiniDisc. In fact, at the SP compression
ratio of 292kbps, 60 to 80 minutes of music could be stored on a single disk.
Even at CD quality, 20 to 28 minutes of music could be stored on the MiniDisc.
The first MiniDisc based machine was the MZ-1 recorder. The problem with this
machine was mainly that it had a cost of more than $750.00. It had an optical line
input, audio line input, and microphone input jack. It had an audio output. Some
of the earliest versions had an optical line output, but this feature was discontinued.
Sony licensed MiniDisc technology to a variety of companies such as Sharp, Panasonic,
and Kenwood. It was only a matter of time before all of these companies had released
- their own lines of
- MiniDisc players and recorders. MiniDisc players were also developed
by Sony for use in the home and car in 1994. All of these efforts yielded no results in
North America and Europe, where people seemed content with cassettes for recording and
CDs for music purchases. But in East Asia, the MiniDisc took hold and reigned as
the top audio format medium through the rest of the 1990s.
In 2000, Sony launched the MiniDisc Long Play (MDLP) format. In the form of LP2,
the MiniDisc player could compress audio at 132kbps for up to 80 to 160 minutes per
disc. In the LP4 format, the audio could be compressed at 66kbps for up to 320 minutes
of audio per disc. But a big difference existed in how the stereo channels were recorded
between these two MiniDisc Long Play formats. The LP2 used the same discrete left
and right audio channels as the original MiniDisc SP format, while the LP4 began
- To keep up with the new MP3 players hitting the market, Sony developed its
- NetMD for launch in 2002. The NetMD featured a USB connector for exchanging
- music files with a personal computer. However, in order to use NetMD on
- your computer, you would have to install their SonicStage (SS) software.
- Many people found that SonicStage was problematic. In some cases, it froze
- their computer systems. In other cases it used up a lot of system resources,
- had file transfer errors, and put restrictions on how often files could be transferred.
- Though Sony quickly came up with an update called SonicStage CP (SSCP), which
- was more usable. Their reputation was so tarnished by the original SonicStage
- that many former NetMD users still won’t purchase Sony products.
- Other people don’t use Sony products anymore because of deceptive claims Sony
- made about NetMD on the NetMD product boxes and on the Sony NetMD website.
- Sony claimed the NetMD would be able to play MP3 files. What they didn’t bother
- to mention was that the MP3 files would not be played natively but would have to
- be re-encoded by SonicStage into ATRAC format during the file transfer process.
- This not only meant that the sound quality of the MP3 files would be tarnished,
- but also that file transfers to the NetMD could take several hours.
- It didn’t help that Sony did not provide good product information to NetMD retailers.
- All during this time NetMD retailers were telling their customers that files could be
- Transferred from the NetMD to their personal computers. Many people ended up
- deleting their original files on their computers after transfer only to find out later
- that they couldn’t copy their NetMD files back onto their computers.
- In 2004, Sony made a variety of fixes and upgrades to their MiniDisc product
- line with the release of the Hi-MD. Things such as USB two-way file transfers
- could now be done. For the first time, recordings could be uploaded from the
- recorder to the computer but only files that were recorded in the Hi-MD format.
- But for many former MiniDisc customers it was too late, as too much damage had
- been done to Sony’s credibility. In addition to Sony, only Onkyo even bothered
- to make mini-component systems and home stereos using Hi-MD. But Kenwood,
- Teac, and Marantz still have MDLP systems on the market, even though Hi-MD
- is backwards compatible with the previous MiniDisc formats. Hi-MD contains
- 1 gigabyte of memory and records in PCM, otherwise known as WAV.
- In April 2006, Sony came out with the MZ-RH1 portable Hi-MD recorder.
- This recorder went the extra step, not only could Hi-MD recordings be uploaded
but also recordings made prior to the introduction of Hi-MD could be uploaded.
Without blatantly admitting it, Song was giving MD users the chance to upload
all their MD recordings to computer so the files could be transferred to other
formats as the MD-age was now coming to a close.
A whole generation in East Asia has now grown up using the MiniDisc formats.
Many people have become hardcore fans. Many people haven’t found a viable
alternative for making real-time copies of music for replay without requiring the
clunky intervention and use of a computer. Many people now collect MiniDisc
systems just as a hobby. But the MiniDisc systems live on in popular usage
because many people just want to be able to grab whatever they hear to hear again later.
