I've been online looking for answers for hours now and still no luck.

I've reinstalled my drivers
I've set a static ip
I've tried clearing winsock

What else should I do?

Make sure DHCP Client service set to automatic and started. You can open the Services management console by typing  services.msc into Start Menu search box.

What do you mean by you have cleared your winsock? Do you mean you have reset your winsock, netsh winsock reset? If you have reset your winsock, then try resetting the tcp/ip protocol, netsh int ip reset.

Yes I meant I reset it. I've also reset the ip.
I don't know if this helps but I was able to give it a connection using the hotspot on my iPhone. But Ethernet still appears to be dead.

Do an ipconfig /all and paste the results so we can take a look.

Isn't it somewhat frowned upon giving out a personal ip?
If I do will any personal ip information be included?

You are not giving your public ip address are you? I mean how is your computer connected to the internet. It is not directly connected to the internet right. You do have some sort of router in between your computer and the internet don't you?

Yes I do. Sorry I'm just a bit paranoid as I've had bad experiences with that in the past. Anyways I'm not currently able to get to my computer at the moment but I'll post the results as soon as I can

Did you also blank out your gateway in ipconfig? It could be a hardware fault. As strange as this sounds powercycling the computer can bring an Ethernet connection back. 

 

Pull the power and if a laptop, the battery too if it is easily accessible. Hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Replace the battery and power.

Do you have your computer Directly Connected to your Cable Modem?

I only blanked out my preferred ip addresses for both IPv4 and 6. And I do have it running through a cable modem, then to the router. but I've already tried bypassing that with the same results.

Sorry I meant the other way around, it goes to the modem then the router.
