I'm going to start by saying I'm at my wits end on this one.  I recently bought some upgrades for my build at home, motherboard, Ram, graphics card, processor, SSD hard drive, and CPU.


Went through the bios setup, then installed Win 7 professional, and quickly installed the drivers my MSI x99a SLI plus motherboard came with. 


I am currently house sitting at my folks for a couple of weeks, but I've connected via through Ethernet before, but for the life of me, I can't get my computer to find a network.  I went to change the Adapter settings  and I do see that the local Area Connection says the network cable is unplugged, and I even tried the obtained configurations to the Protocol 6(TCP/IPv6) and 4 but I still get nothing. The newest network driver is installed, but alas, I get no where,




The ethernet cable works, and I'm directly connected into the wifi modem. I had a wireless card, but the MSI x99a doesn't support that PCI slot, so I'm forced to stick to Cable. 


Any idea's? I mean, I've tried everything I can think of, and I'm getting no where. 


Please help.

I hope that you meant "router" when you said "modem".


Who is the manufacturer...what is the model of the "modem"?


Some devices combine the functions of modem and routers...call themselves modem-routers.


If you have two distinct devices (modem and router), then connect the system directly to the modem to test connectivity.
