    I had a router go bad before and the wireless still worked for about 5 days longer than the ethernet. I'm not an expert on this side of things just thought I would throw out my experience.

    It is an easy thing to check with these kinds of problems.

    1) Try a different ethernet cord
    2) Try plugging into a different computer
    3) See if you can borrow a router from a friend

    Basically process of elimination has worked best for me in the past

    you could also check that your ethernet card hasnt popped out of place or a cable inside your system hasnt come undone.
