My mom has a dell inspiron running windows 7. She has DSL network and everything was working fine, then all the sudden it quit connecting to the internet. I hooked my laptop to her 2-wire modem/router and was able to connect. I then took her desktop to my house and connected it to my network. Same problem. I have it wired to both routers. I can do ipconfig and receive all the correct IP, subnet, gateway and DNS as on my pc, but it will not connect to the network, I can also not ping the gateway from the pc. I have also made all the entries static and still no luck. I have ran malawarebytes and CCleaner. Still no luck. Any ideas? When I run troubleshooter in Windows it states "The default gateway is not available". I have also tried running it back to a previous install point, reinstalling nic driver and logging in with a different users. I have exhausted all options that I know to do. Thanks in advance for any help.
