Hey guys, I built my rig a couple of months ago and it's been running smoothly - up until now that is. A few days ago I tried to access the internet from my main rig. I went on to google, said the page cannot be displayed. So, I looked in the lower right hand corner and it had the cross and said no connection detected - at first I wasn't too worried, internets probably just down for a few minutes, and it should work fine by tommorow. I soon found that all the other computers in my house, and my xbox aren't having any dificulty connecting. And I'm typing this very message with a netbook that is connected to the web via the same cable that connects my main rig, which leads me to believe that this is either software based or there is physically a problem somewhere inside my computer. I've opened up my computer and I can't see any damage on the motherboard or around the ethernet input thingy. There's nothing I can remember doing that would have caused this, it was working fine the day before. See my sig rig for stats and OS. I've installed SP1. I noticed that there was an optional update - Realtek PCIe GBE Family controller, but if my computer required this to keep the internet working, wouldn't it be listed as an important update? I'd rather leave re-installing windows as a last resort, so if there is anything you guys come up with it would be great to hear from you. Oh yeah, my rig doesn't have wireless capablities and I can only connect via a wired network, otherwise I'd be fine using wireless. Thanks in advance guys!
