My problem started when I got the SurfSideKick 3 Virus on my home PC. Long story short, I ended up reloading my operating system onto my second harddrive to get rid of it. I got online to download the drivers for my motherboard (which includes my network card) from nvidia.com and loaded them on my home computer.
My problem comes from the fact that I still can't connect to the internet with my cable modem. Windows says that my network card is operating properly, and that my drivers are adequate.
When I pull up a prompt and ipconfig /all my IP address shows up properly (169.xx.xx.x), but my physical address shows up as all zeros. I borrowed another network card from a friend, same problem.
When I check the status of the LAN connection, it says that is sending data but not receiving. I called my ISP (Knology) to have them ping the modem and they said that it is working properly.
I have tried reinstalling the drivers a couple of times, but no luck.
Also, No Firewall, No Router.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
