Try replacing the network card inside the tower case with a new one. They cost less than £10 (that's $15 on your side of the pond). Also check your using the correct type of networking cable (ethernet cable) from router/modem to network card and that the cable is sound with no breaks in it (buy a new one of those too just to be sure).
