I have had a good DSL connection for a long time. Never had a problem with being disconnected. Last week I started losing my connection. I would shut the computer down and unplug the DSL model and start it all back up and it would be fine for awhile. A couple days ago my connection was lost altogether. All of the lights are lit on my DSL modem and when I look at my network it says connected; however, my internet/email are not working. I spent a long time on the phone with my ISP tech support. They tried to ping the modem and got no response. My IP was coming up 0.0.0.0. He thought it may be that my DSL modem had broke so he swapped with a new one and I still have no connection. I have used Adaware and the newest update of McAfee and no viruses show up. Could there be a problem with my ethernet card? When I check my device manager it says that the ethernet is working fine. I'm out of ideas other than replacing the card. Please try to help me out so I don't have to take this to the shop. Thanks in advance for your help.
