Internet randomly dropped out about 24 hours ago yesterday and haven't gotten it working since.
When I connect to another Internet randomly dropped out about 24 hours ago yesterday and haven't gotten it working since.
Manually set IP: pinging IP address: 4x Reply from : Destination host unreachable. Forgot to include that error: Windows IP Configuration An error occurred while releasing interface Local Area Connection : An address has not yet been associated with the network endpoint.When I connect to another computer (which I'm posting on right now) it works fine.The problematic computer is running Windows 7 64 bit, this computer is running Vista.Sorry I can't be more specific for everyone's router but that is the general idea.I'm using Win 7 but I don't think it makes any difference.No internet in safe mode seems to me like it's not a malware/virus issue. First lets try switching cables, and making sure that you are getting power from the nic.I can't think of any other possibilities as to why I can't get an IP from DHCP... you should have a green light at the connection area of you nic and rj45.The icon looks like it's constantly "searching" for a connection (blue circle thing) Setting IP manually: Icon just goes to yellow exclamation point.Diagnosis just says Troubleshooting couldn't find anything wrong.I've been using the generic Windows ethernet drivers for months (cause I'm lazy I guess). And how come when I enter an address manually I still have no internet access and get a generic "Troubleshooting couldn't find a problem" error? IPv6 Default Gateway: [blank] IPv6 DNS Servers: fec0, etc.But once this came up I installed these drivers from EVGA (My mobo, EVGA 680i SLI has two integrated nforce NICs): Driver Version : 15.53 - EVGA Recommended Download Release Date: 03/15/2010 WHQL Certified : YES Driver File : Primary Download Link Notes : NONE How can it be a driver issue when the default drivers that I've been using for months don't work as well as the current up to date drivers? And why did this just suddenly happen in the middle of me using the internet? (3) Are you using an integrated network adapter or pci.
