“Network Cable Unplugged” Error in Windows 7: Possible causes and tips to resolve

A network cable is a cable connected between a computer and a network in order to transfer data. You may receive “Network Cable Unplugged” error message on your Windows 7 desktop. The occurrence of the message may depend on the severity of the problem. There could be many reasons for the message to occur. Loose connection of Ethernet cables to the adapter can be a reason for the error message. Always make sure that you update the network adapter driver software from the manufacturer’s website itself. The problem might also be with the broadband modem or router. So time to time verification of the functionality of these devices is necessary.

Following points can elaborate further on the “Network Cable Unplugged” error message:

  • Verify the cable
  • Presence of green light
  • Checking the Ethernet card

Verify the cable

When you get “Network cable unplugged” error message, verify whether the cable is plugged in to both the ends or not. Press it tightly until you hear a ‘Click’ sound. If the cable is a new one, then you need to make sure that it is not a cross over cable since a straight through network cable is needed. If the uplink port is enabled then you need to disable it since it is necessary only if you use a cross over cable.

Presence of green light

After plugging in the cable you need to check for a green light. If there isn’t any light then you need to check whether the network cable is getting power or not and do try by changing the cable also. If you do not find any light even after changing the cable then their might be some problem with the network switch.

Checking the Ethernet card

If you are sure that your network switch is working properly then check by plugging the cable into a different port. Sometimes the problem might be with a port or may be with the Ethernet card. If you find the Ethernet card in the ‘Device Manager’ then to fix the problem try to uninstall and reinstall the Ethernet card.
