Hello, previous day there was heavy lightening at my area. A lightening was so close to my house. After that my desktop pc goes black and i started it again. My desktop pc was worrking properly. But suddenly i notice that my desktop pc is not connected with internet. A cable that attached back to my pc, i look there and saw that THE LED LIGHT was on which means connection from my internet service provider was ok, also i called them and then say it is all ok from their side. Then i realize some problem may happen to my pc, otherwise the led light would flash if data was transferring. Then i thought i might loose their realtek PCIe GBE family network adapter after lightening. But i checked my device manager and network adapter. I saw there that the device is working properly. Also at command i type ping 127.0.0.1 and it replies. So What should i do now? What's the problem happened to my pc?

I'm using windows 8.1 , processor: Intel core 2 duo E7500.

Can you also ping outside your LAN? Like google.com? Also did you powercycle everything (Router, Desktop, Modem, etc.) and try different ethernet cord or reseat the LAN card?

 

Also not sure if this would also help but flush you dns cache

ipconfig /flushdns

and clear cookies/temp data with CCleaner

Thanks mate for your reply :)

No, I can't ping outside lan. I check the ethernet cord with a laptop and the data streaming was working. So ethernet cord is working perfectly.

Is your Modem/Router fuctioning correctly? You could test it out with that laptop if you aren't sure.
