Not a good idea to put your wife's email address on a forum post.
Check that the ethernet card is properly seated

Have a look in device manager to see if your lan card is working.

Have a look here - hope this does not apply to you. Have you checked the router settings?

If all is well in Device manager there is no need to check the ethernet card.
I don't know if it will work, but in Device Manager Right Click on it, and select Uninstall Driver then Reboot.It should reload the drivers when it starts.
It's worth a try.

From your original posting, you have *two* network adapters installed. (Ignore the 1394 connection as that's Firewire.) Have you tried connecting with each of the adapters, because it is unlikely that both would have failed simultaneously.

Are you actually in Carnoustie or Kirriemuir, because I will be in Carnoustie this afternoon and could have looked in to help?
