  • PC Internet Connection Problem...

    And I am back with another problem with my PC, as if my luck isn't bad enough.

    I woke up this morning, powered up my computer, and WHAM, no internet. First I thought it might be an issue with the modem and router, so I power cycled both. Still the same issue. I turned on my mother's PC (the one I'm typing on now) to test the internet connectivity. Internet works fine.

    My PC Specs and Internet Setup:

    ASUS P5PE-VM (using the onboard NIC)
    Pentium D 805
    1 GB of DDR400
    GeForce 7600GS
    120 GB HDD
    Audigy LS
    DVD-ROM
    DVD+-RW DL
    Floppy Drive
    480W PSU, Thermaltake PurePower series

    5 PCs connected via wireless G cards
    Linksys WRT54GL (latest Linksys firmware)
    Speedstream 4100B aDSL Modem


    So it's my PC. Here's the steps I took:

    1) Unplugged network cable and tested it using my cable tester. Results came back fine.
    2) Switch the cable with one that does work. Same problem.
    3) Rolled back driver on onboard NIC. Same problem.
    4) Rebooted system, and tried internet again. Same problem.
    5) Disabled and reenabled onboard NIC. Same problem.
    6) Rebooted system, installed a wireless G card, rebooted system again. The MSI wireless utility said that I was connected so I tried browsing to Google. Same problem.
    7) Now I'm backing up my files in preparation for a reformat.

    Before I reformat...is there some other steps I should take? Anyone have a similar experience?

    I ran the 'netsh' command and no luck still.

    I've started my reformat.

      i wish i would have seen this post before you started to reformat. That little tool has saved me many of nights of "fixing" net issues.
      that sounds like a good idea trooper.

        Hmm, thanks a bunch Trooper. I'll save it for future use.

        I just can't believe the netsh command had no effect. It was supposed to rebuild my winsock2.
