Suddenly my computer won't connect to the Internet

Recommended Posts

In the middle of checking my email yesterday my Internet connection was lost. My motel and router are working and I have reset both and my computer many times and tried to restore my computer from a backup point when it was working it still won't connect. When I go to the Internet connections menu it says it plugged into home network but home network is not hooked up to the Internet I did scans and looked into all drives and devices and they are all working properly. Even ran cmd to check ip and hook up and all my Ethernet connections were changed to tunnel connections and the devices were disabled ...how do I fix this and get my net back?

Go to Control Panel/Network and Internet/Internet Options and click on the Connections tab and go down to LAN Settings, make sure that "Automatically Detect Settings" is checked. While in Network and Internet click on Network and Sharing Center, now on the left click on Change Adapter Settings and make certain that your connection is enabled.

 

See if any of this helps...

Well, lets do this...go to Start/Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and click on Device Manager. Locate the network controller/adapter and right click it, selecct "Uninstall" then click OK. Reboot and let Windows reinstall it.

When you click "Uninstall" there will be a small box asking you if you want to "Delete drivers also", make certain that it is NOT checked so that the drivers stay installed. That way all you're uninstalling is the network controller. On reboot Windows 7 should "find" it and reinstall it automatically. ;)

It sounds to me like the modem took a dive.

 

With the computer hard-wired into the modem, shut down the computer.

Unplug the modem and count to ten.

Plug the modem back in and wait for the lights to all illuminate as they should.

Boot up the computer.

 

If you still do not have internet access, call your ISP and tell them of your trouble and ask if they are able to "ping" your modem.

 

Let us know how you fair. :tup:

Have you tried Safe Mode with Networking?

Tap F8 at start up, choose Safe mode with Networking.

 

Also worth trying since you have a Windows 7 disk, is running sfc /scannow.

 

Put your disk in the tray and close it if it autostarts.

Go to Start and type cmd

At the top you'll see the command console icon.

Right click it and choose: "Run as Administrator"

At the prompt, type: sfc /scannow

Hit the Enter key and let it run.

Yes, do this next...

Based on these results, I'm more inclined to believe that perhaps the network adapter is physically at fault.

What I mean by that, is that this is a hardware issue.

SafeMode with Networking should have worked if this was a software issue.

That being said, there may be some networking protocols that were corrupted and this is why I had suggested trying the System File Scan.

 

I would imagine that this network adapter is attached to the motherboard. Do you have anyway to try a PCI network adapter or even a USB wireless adapter?

I wouldn't go out and spend any money yet, but just thought that there may be a friend that may have a loaner.

 

There is an alternative to going to the extreme of wiping the system and reinstalling Windows, which you had mentioned earlier.

If this is a hardware issue, then it won't make a difference anyway.

 

However, there is the option to do a Repair Install of Windows 7

This will keep your files and programs installed, but reset Windows to it's default settings with new system files.

 

Quite a journey this has been for you. I wish you well.

I tried the windows repair and it made a new copy of windows and saved all the old stuff in new windows, I thought that it might be the board failure so I looks inside and it's very dusty and the only port I have is on the mother board, I maybe able to get my hands on a wireless one tho .... Fingers crossed I miss my net
