I would like assistance on how I can delete some devices so that my machine can have access to the internet. The Local Area Network card seems not to function now while its access to the internet has totally failed. Initially the device manager revealed many breakdowns in the network segment and that’s why I attempted to eliminate all the devices and permit it to recover the drives and hardware. However, it has been cumbersome to eliminate the items since according to a message I received from the computer, these items are required for the start up process of the computer. My machine is a Pentium IV operating with windows XP. The regvac did a good work in renovating it. The computer’s operations started deteriorating when I changed it to Verizon Digital Subscriber Line though it had worked well for some time. Please need your help.
LAN card not functioning, can’t access internet using Verizon Digital Subscriber Line
Verizon Digital Subscriber Line uses 2 type of Internet protocol, they are PPPOE and DHCP. These type of Internet connections are in separate coastal region. DHCP is mostly use by Western region and is uses Dynamic IP address.
DHCP are assigned an IP Address to the modem randomly an it changes from time to time. While from Eastern region, they uses PPPOE type of Internet protocol. It needs to authenticate from the network using the email address and password provided by the ISP.
Most PPPOE needs modem rest to make it work, so with DHCP. However, if the PPPOE is not working after the modem reset, the username and password needs to update in the modem or the PPPOE dialer.
Some PPPOE dialer is configured with incorrect username and is getting an error 691 or 768. Local Area connection often is not working when this error message pop-up. The solution is to delete or uninstall this device and re-create it back.
You'll need to re-create the dialer and type the username and password to make it work. If there is a conflict with other device, you'll need to manually delete this through Internet options.
Go to Internet Explorer
Look for Tools, Internet Options
Then Delete the dialer created under Dial-up and Virtual settings
