No internet access? But you are totally sure that all things are clear and set?
So here is the thing, most people would think (especially when there is a thunderstorm) that any NIC (or lan card) would just burn itself easily. When I saw that the port on the back of my computer produces a solid color orange even with or without cable, I thought that port was ughhh all gone, thought I should buy a new card. But, here is the way to determine if your card/NIC is broken:
First, go to myComputer, right click and then Properties.
Second, click DEVICE MANAGER.
Third, expand the Network Adapters. You can check there if really your adapter is not working or disabled.
Problem: IT SAYS IT IS WORKING PROPERLY, BUT STILL NO CABLE IS DETECTED.
Answer: Check if your adapter is disabled, if so, just enable it and then bam! All set!
