So yesterday as I launched a computer game on my desktop, it was stuck at the loading screen and was attempting to connect to the network. I closed out of the game, and then my internet just stopped working (I am also connected through the ethernet cable on a LAN network). Anyways, I went to bed and this morning nothing changed. I troubleshoot to see what the problem is and I get the message "Your broadband modem is experiencing connectivity issues", with the problem "The connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the Internet is broken". I tried replacing the ethernet cable with 3 other ones, all resulting in the same issue. I have restarted my computer normally and in safe mode, and I have done a system restore. I live in an apartment so the only way to reset the modem is to unplug it, which I've done numerous times. I've also performed a clean boot with msconfig.exe, and I've tried to reset the winsock connection via cmd. Also when I plug in any of the ethernet cables to my laptop I can connect to the LAN just fine, the only issue is that it wont connect with my desktop. Does anyone know what the problem could be, I'm trying to do everything before calling in someone to inspect/fix it. All help is very much appreciated! Thanks
