have you checked in hardware - device manager that the network cards do not have a yellow exclamation mark?

Try disabling firewalls and any security settings to see if that makes any difference.

You could also try running the network wizard.

check that network interface cards etc are enabled. Right click my computer - properties - hardware - device manager - network devices - click on the plus sign for each in turn and properties then that all is enabled
