Everything looks good with Device Manager.
You've changed the cable out
Hard rest the router\modem
Changed the Nic card out.
Lets take a look at your network setup itself.
Go to Control Panel then to Network Connections
Take a screenshot to show all of the displayed connections and attach to your next response.

Boot to Safe Mode with Networking and try again. Is there a solid green light on the NIC card where your CAT5 is plugged in?

Post an ipconfig /all result from both safe mode and a normal boot.

Here is myproblem.

For some reason it is not letting me do a Ctrl Print Screen into this box (I have no idea why)

So I did it to a WORD file and trioed to upload that but I get an error message that I'm not permitted to upload this kind of file.

A WORD document??????

On the screen I have two rows of connection icons- the top one:

Connection Manager is grayed out but I can see a red X - it reads

MSN
Unavailable - Devise missing, F...

The second row: Lan or High Speed Internet

has two icons:


first:

Local area connection
Network Cable unplugged Firewall...
nVidia nForce Co



second:

LocaL area Connection 3
Connected, Firewalled
Lyncsys LNE 100TX (v5)Fast et


This blinks with a red X on and off alternating with "Network cable is unplugged"


Sorry for not being able to send this but I have no clue why a simple thing that I do all the time, control print screen is not working now.

I may have scanned past, but are you on DSL or Cable?
Could be a bad modem, or the DSL or Cable issues.

By chance did you install the NVIDIA Network Firewall service? Its prepackaged with the chipset drivers.

Also, your Linksys card says your connected. An ipconfig /all would be helpful...

I don't evber rfemember actively installing the NVIDIA Network Firewall service - would that have come packaged with something and I installed it along with everything else?

Also I have no idea what you mean by "an ipconfig / all would be helpful.

Do you want me to do start/run/ipconfig and then "enter" ?? Is there a step you want me to do?

Do you want me to take down (uninstall) the nVidia firewall?

I think I need some more words to understand what I need to do.

The NVIDIA firewall comes with the chipset software. If you installed those and clicked on "Express" or "Typical" it probably auto selected it.

Start -> Run -> cmd

Type ipconfig /all in the command prompt.

Lets not worry about that NVIDIA service just yet, it may or may not be interfering. Post your results from ipconfig

Try this:

  • Click Start > Run, then in the "Open:" box, type (or copy and paste) the following command (exactly as shown):

    cmd /c ipconfig /all>c:\ipconfig.txt&notepad c:\ipconfig.txt

    and click OK, (or press [Enter]).
  • A Notepad window should open with the results from the "ipconfig /all" command. Click once anywhere in that window, press [Ctrl]+[A] to hightlight everything, then press [Ctrl]+[C] to copy it, (into memory on your computer).
  • Back here on GeeksToGo, at the bottom of this thread, click the "Add Reply" button. Click once in the box where you would be typing your message, then press [Ctrl]+[P] to paste, (what you had copied into memory on your computer in step 2 above).
  • That's it. Add whatever other comments and questions you like and then click the "Add Reply".

This topic can be closed. :)

I finally figured out that one of the ports on the router was faulty.

As you had requested, I tried different cables, and I tried rebooting the server.

I called Verizon and they confirmed that my settings were correct and I finally moved off the one port AND IT ALL WORKED.

Thanks for taking the time and hanging in there with me and my busy schedule.

Out of all I learned a lot and got a new NIC card!!!!

Thanks again.
