Hello all
I've been reading, researching diligently on this issues. It's seems like lots of people having the same problem and more than one way to solve it. But here's mine:

I tried everything..almost on line that I could find to fix this problem.

-Restored
-Scan for malware, virus
-Turn on, turn off, reboot PC, router
-Run winsockfix.exe
-IP CONFIG/ALL, RENEW, RELEASE
-Reset netsh winsock reset (same as winsock.exe..I guess)
-Change Speed and Duplex on Advance tab
-Reinstalled driver
-Last but not least..bought a new Ethernet card, disable the other one..but both does not work neither. Anyone has ANY other ideas or different trouble shooting that can share here to enhance our knowledge of this weird problems, I am all ears. Thanks a lot in advance for helping us out.

Do you have a firewall and is is set to allow LAN access to the outside world?

More info required, networking setup, hardware, firewall software as mentioned. DHCP enabled on machine and router? Tried assigning the machine a static address in the router's address range?

No, we have basic window firewall, but disable them all.

You are missing the default gateway which is the address of your router/modem.
Normally this is detected if you have 'obtain an IP address automatically' in Network Connections >Properties > TCP/IP Properties.
If you have a manual setup the default gateway is normally the same as the IP address.

Swap cables, try another router, run Wireshark Portable (click here) and see if DHCP negotiations are occurring, see if the MAC address of either network card appears on the list of connected devices in your router configuration.

Default gateway is one of the parameters supplied by DHCP.
