[First of all I apoligize for the fact that theres most definately numerous threads on this.]

Unfortunately, I was napping while a thunderstorm started and was awoken by a clap of lightning. I quickly shut down and unplugged the two desktop PCs in my household. After the storm I booted up both pc's to discover one works perfect and one informs me of a "disconnected internet connection". I tinkered a bit and figured that onboard ethernet socket was shot. So I went out and bought a new ethernet card, installed it, recognized fine, and "limited or no connectivity". I have tried http://www.pchell.co...nectivity.shtml and done everything reccomended and have had no luck with any of it. I have tried "WindowsXP-KB884020-x86-enu" fix and the "FixReg.reg" as well as the "WinsockxpFix". No luck with any of it. I've tried simply pushing the reset buttons on my router and modem and unplugging everything. I have tried different cables but no luck.
At this moment in time the computer I am on works fine and runs off the same router as the "limited or no connectivity" one.
I'd appreciate any help at all and if anything I've typed is unclear please ask me to revise it.
Thank you,

does the router have Mac control? if yes, you may want to assign static IP the computer.
