On the report that your modem is off, but you know it's running ok because you can run wirelessly and I hope all of the lights are
functioning ok, consider the following:
I know you said "all connections are fine", but did you physically disconnect the ethernet cable connection from the network card and snap it back in; likewise from the modem port and snap it back in?
--- Consider doing so with the computer off
--- Make sure all of the modem lights are in order before starting the computer back up
Even though you uninstalled Firefox and the security app, if either one is a factor in your problem, there might be some leftover element that's still a factor which at this time can be determined
--- Since you didn't have any issues earlier in the day, try a system restore to yesterday when the computer ran ok
If that doesn't work, try Safe Mode with Networking

The technician who came out said it may be my network card.
Could it be something else? Would getting a new prossesor solve the problem?
What technician might you be referring to?
Why do you not accept her/his determination?
It could be...any number of things theoretically...but if I called a technician to troubleshoot a system issue and I was told that it was a defective/failing NIC...I think that I would try another NIC if I doubted the judgment of said technician
IMO...only that and nothing more...the CPU is likely to be the most long-lasting, non-defective component of any computer system.
