Default ethernet cable unplugged??

Hello all I was wondering if someone can help me with my ethernet connections......I have an onboard ethernet jack in my computer and one day it said on the bottom of the screen that "A network cable is unplugged".......I thought maybe it got fried or something so I went and got a PCI ethernet card and put it in and the same thing happend with that even though it is plugged in and everything I have nothing like it doesnt think there is a cable plugged in, yet when i go to my network connections it has the name of the ethernet card and says its working properly and is enabled....and I have two computers plugged into the hub the one works fine with two lights and the other that doesnt work only has one light..the link light is out.. anyone have any suggestions

Make certain that the onboard system is turned ON in the bios.

Default hello

thanks for replying guys but I am still having a problem and I am baffled, my onboard lan is enabled in bios the problem I am having is that it says the cable is unplugged which is crazy because I have a cable from my ethernet jack on the back of my computer and its plugged into my hub, and my other computer is plugged into the hub also and there is a connection light on on the hub but not on the one that doesnt work, its not the cable because i swapped them, it says in the device manager that the cards are working properly, its as if I have a network set up and the cables are not plugged in....

Try deleteing the network connections from networking. Disconnect the power from the hub.
Shut down totally-rehook everything power up and see if windows finds your hardware and reinstalls the networking.

Have you tried switching the cable to a different port on the hub? I have seen many a port go bad on hubs, especially older ones.

It most probably is the hub port. I have had ones go bad.
