Dear folk

My desktop windows 7 64 bit was working fine til I walked up yesterday and there was a red cross on the network icon!!!

Ethernet cable working fine as when i hooked it to my laptop everything is working fine , means problem lies within the desktop and nothing wrong with cable or router port.

Troubleshoot that I had done so far :

Restarted desktop 3 times, uninstalled LAN driver, connected new Ethernet cable

What else I need to check to find out what is going on ?

Thanks

In network Connections is it switched off. If so click on it and then click on Enable this network device.If still having problems click on Diagnose this connection and see if that helps.

Or troubleshoot in control panel network and internet. see if that helps.

All things to try till someone can give you the proper information that you need.

or switch off the router for 20 seconds and on again see if that fixes it.
