Heylo all, ive seem to have a very annoying problem. Recently my house just had a power surge, now before said surge, my computer was running and getting on the internet just fine.I am connected through a lan with a cable modem. Now after the power surge it seems i cant get on the internet at all but my parents computer can. I cylced the modem and router just to see if that worked and nothing. It says limited or no conectivity. I dont understand why my computer is acting up and not my parents, as my parents computer is also plugged into a router (Belkin 2.4Ghz router). Its done this in the past and my dad just said reinstall windows. Thats a pain in the butt as anyone knows, having to reinstall all your files and such. If anyone can help me resolve this very annoying problem id greatly appreciate it. :whistling:

moving to hw as this isn't browser related.

if you had a power surge it is very possible that
1) your os was damanged as a result of the event.
2) your nic has gone bad (my money would go here, If I were a betting person)


have you experienced any other problems? Is the network card built into the system board or is it a pci card?

This will fit on a floppy if you can download it on any PC and then run it on yours
