Hi there. Happy New Year!
ok. Go to start, Control Panal.
Then click "Network and Internet Connections"
Then under "or Pick a Control Panel icon", click
"Network Connections"
Now you should have a screen with all you devices. All you have to do is Right-click each one and select Enable.
Problem Solved
Hope it works, let me know if it dont.

The icon is showing because you have disabled the connection. Find Network... in control panel and delete it. The router will have its own icon.

"Network cable unplugged" message normally means exactly that.

It would normally refer to the cable between the PC and the router.

So

Check the cable is plugged in securely at each end

Try another cable

Try resetting the router - unplug from the mains, wait a couple of minutes, then plug back in.

Is the light by the network connection on the PC on - what colour is it.

Check in Device Manager that the ethernet port is working correctly.

Is the light on the router associated with the socket you have the cable in, lit?

all the lights come on at startup then the power ligt stays on and the DSL light goes to green then red and back to green and keeps doing this to i power of router no lights come on when i plug in ethernet cable on any of the 4 ports . thanks

If the light associated with the actual cable doesn't come on when you plug it in, then the system is clearly also thinking it isn't there - hence the message.

How about the LED next to the cable exit on the system?

Perhaps the LAN port/card isn't working - what does Device Manager say?

Are you using the right cable - sometimes you get two cables and they are for different purposes.
