I'm connected through Cable Modem and NTL to the magical Interweb but at the moment I'm unable to even connect to a single webpage from my desktop..why mention the desktop? because I don't have any trouble with my wireless enabled Thinkpad.
Everything was fine until around two/three weeks ago..I don't think anything changed, I really don't remember installing anything and certainly no hardware changes.
So I connect to the Cable Modem through a Buffalo G54 wireless router, and again my laptop in the same flat is able to connect to the wireless network and the internet.
My Desktop shows "Network cable unplugged". It can see and connect to the Wireless network, I can also log into the Router through the 192.168.... I have tried powering down the router, modem and computer in various combinations, switching the wire connecting the router to the modem... no avail..
I've tried altering the Duplex (down to 10 Full/half, now back on Auto) through the My Computer/Manage/Devices/Network Adapters
What else? The Network Connections control panel shows; Wireless Network (connected), 1394 Adapter (?) Connected, and Realtek ethernet NIC, Network cable unplugged.
Any ideas, or resolution would be great as NTL are not coming back to me yet...
