Hi, Thanks for helping me if possible. I have a Dell PC with windows XP. I have cable internet, which comes in to the cable modem, then into a wireless router. The others in my household have laptops and are connected to the internet by wireless; but my PC, which is connected to the router by an ethernet cord, just lost its connection yesterday as I was working and I can't make it reconnect. The ethernet card is Broadcom 440x10/100 integrated controller. Its orange LED is lit and the yellow LED is blinking, so according to the manual it's working fine. And when I look under Internet Connections, it says connected.
I've tried many of the suggestions on here; I've routed the cable modem directly to the PC and it still doesn't work.
I've uninstalled the Broadcom device, run the Add Hardware wizard, and it says it's running properly.
When I look under device manager, under network adapters, it says device is working properly.
But it ain't!
Thank you for your time.
