Try uninstalling NIC driver(s) from within Device Manager. Reboot.
Take note of the drivers you uninstall; if Windows cannot supply them on reboot, you may have to reinstall manually.

Click Start.

In the search bar type devmgmt.msc and hit Enter.

Click the + next to the pane [PANE GOES HERE] so it expands, showing all installed hardware.

Take a screenshot of this window and attach the file in your next post.

If you have no internet connection on the problem PC, transferring the screenshot via flashdrive or CD to a working computer is possible. If this is not practical for you, a detailed listing of the requested information will suffice, along with reports of any ! ? or X's next to the entries.
