I have a Winbook laptop. I have had no problems connecting via wireless or wired connections until yesterday. Yesterday, it became impossible to connect to a network via a wired connection. My wireless connectivity is still fine. In checking the properties of the wired connection, I see that it is set for DHCP. I also see that my machine is sending but not receiving packets.

The last time the machine was connected to a network was on Friday and it was fine then. Any ideas?????

Have you tried resetting the router? Sometimes just doing that will fix connection issues.

I tried that. In fact, I have tried it on 2 different networks. No luck. I've also done a system restore to last Friday, when I know it was working and I've run a virus scan on it to make sure I had no problems there. No luck.

Thanks for the idea, though. I appreciate any more ideas as well.

You said it was set for dhcp but it it getting an ip? right click on the icon in the bottom right and click status, is there a gateway assigned? an ip? if so open a command prompt and try to ping the gateway, is it succesful?

find your network adapter in the Device Manager, is it enabled and working?
