Win XP on Dell dimention 3100C desktop PC.
Confirmed connection ok to router with laptop.
Computer states cable unplugged. Checked properties, says enabled.
How do I repair this ?

Is this wireless connection or wired direct to router?

Check ethernet controller in device manager check wireless card in device manager first.

naa. I deleted in device manager and let it discover it again. The pc thinks it is fine & just unplugged!
Popped out to pc world and bought new LAN card.
Fitted & installed softy for it.
Working fine now. Just disabled internal LAN.
