This was working fine until 2 days ago.
The hardware is OK as I have loaded windows on another disk and tested it. Also work fine in Linux
Running windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
The device manager says the ethernet device is OK.
The local area connection status shows ipv4 ipv6 but with "not connected" shown.
I have removed Mcaffe Enterprise, and lean the registery, run
AVG Rescue DISK
tweaking repair tool
I have doen a SRC system file check
I have reset winsock etc.
My gut feel is that recent McAffe update changed a registry setting , but I'm dammed if I can find it.
I have reinstalled the Realtek drivers...
Tried windows repair but it won't run...says incompatible version.
A little bit stumped...I'm sure its a simple thing but what?
