Rebooted the PC and can't get online, appears like the onboard LAN is not working...

Giga Ga-EP35-DS3 mobo,
When I try to communicate with my Netgear Modem via 192.168.0.1 connection not found.

My laptop is working fine via wireless from the same Modem.
Tried a different LAN cable to my PC, no connection still.

Checked BIOS.. Onboard LAN enabled
Smart LAN detecting at Port...normal, normal, short, normal
(whatever that means)

Checked Network connections> Local area connections> TCP/IP>
Obtain an IP address auto (as usual)

Other than sticking a PCI lan card in , (which I dont have)
Anything I've missed?

thanks

Not sure precisely what he LAN diagnostic stuff means, but it does sound suspect.

1. Try plugging into a different port on your switch/router
2. Post the output from 'ipconfig /all' while plugged in via the cable

Tried this and IT WORKED!!!From Whirlpool.org

"Try disabling the LAN controller in the BIOS and booting the PC then shut it down and turn it off at the wall for a minute. Turn it back on and enable the LAN controller in the BIOS and boot into Windows again."

Must have lost it's drivers or whatever????

Thanks for your reply.

How very strange.

But given I have a GA-P35-DS3, I shall remember this should I be faced with such retardation in the future.

You're not running Vista, by any chance, are you?

If you've had a recent "Windows Update" then chance are it's screwed your driver.

You will need;
* a banana
* 4 sq metres of al-foil.
* two spoons
* a roll of tape (sticky, duct, whatever).

Let me know when you have those.

Squidy comes with the bag.

As a matter of fact, squidy comes with just about everything, especially fellatio.
