So I come home after the weekend to find my machine has no internet connection. First thought was the router needed to be reset so I did that, still nothing. Windows says there is no cable plugged in even though the router shows a link. I tryed repairing, reinstalling drivers, nothing will work. I'm running vista but it was working fine and has been for several months. The only think I can think of is that we had some storms this weekend, is it possible a surge came through the line? My computer is on a surge strip but the router and modem are not. Card is Intel pro 100/VE. Any ideas? Right now im running a cheap pci card from wally world and it couldn't hold a steady stream if its life depended on it.
