I had a lightning storm wake me up from a nap the other night with my computer still on. When I woke up I went ahead and shut everything down. The next day I got the "Network Cable Unplugged No Internet Connection" . I first thought it might be my cable modem or cable so I plugged the modem into my laptop and it works fine. Would that mean my NIC Card was fried from the storm?. I already reformatted my computer (which I was planning on doing anyway). I checked the device manager and it states my NIC is working correctly. Everything else on the computer is working fine now except I cant get it to read that the cable modem is connected... Thanks in advance!
