Hi, I am having trouble connecting to the internet on my desktop PC. It happened evidently last night because when I came to check my e-mail this morning I could load neither FireFox or IE. I am running Windows XP on my desktop and I also have two laptops running Windows 7. Connecting wirelessly(sp) is not a problem as I can hook up a wireless adapter to my desktop via usb and my rig will connect. Both laptops work fine as well. Although my local area connection shows to be connected under Network Connections, I still cannot load the internet with either browser unless I attempt it wirelessly.

EDIT: I would like to add that I have also tried different cables as well as bypassing the router. Also my Network adapter is a RealTek RTL8168D.

I would guess that the ethernet card / network card is bad or has a bad driver. Try a new pci or pciex1 network card.

After trying a few more things, I have come to the conclusion that my Lan port is dead and will have to get a standalone card.
