I know this is a common problem, and I've looked at other peoples' related threads, and tried to do what they said, but I still have no internet access via Ethernet connection to my router. Usually a simple reboot, disabling and reenabling and reboot would solve the problem. This time it has baffled me.... I have done all that I could find on the internet.. namely : 1. Rebooted the Computer. 2. Enabled and re-enabled the driver. 2.1 Rebooted the modem and switch 3. Played with router settings but I really don't know what I'm doing here 4. Installed the extra service on Ipv4 for multicast networks... 5. Changed how windows treat unidentified networks... 6. Updated the driver. 7. Downloaded and updated all the drivers from the manufacturers site. Nothing has worked so far. It still finds unidentified network, and no internet connection. I am on an ethernet cable, and not wifi connection. Everything was working absolutely fine until the day before yesterday. All of a sudden in the morning I saw the dreaded sign.. and that was it I am at a loss for options.. any ideas are welcome.. ps. If you need more information please let me know... I am attaching my ipconfig/all but for two situations, I don't know if it makes any difference but one is when I am just using the Ethernet connection (NO Internet) and then the other ipconfig/all is when I am also connected to the router's WiFi (which thankfully works and so I can actually make posts).
