  1. My comps internet stopped working while i was away, theo thers still work but mine doesnt. I've updated all the drivers and such, and it hasnt had a problem for a year.

    Virus scanned, updated chipset (using a8n-e and onboard network)

    Any ideas? The green light is just orange. Tried switching network cords and slots with working ones as well. All I did was reboot while it was working, and now it's not.

    Yes, tried a different cable, all the lan works. The cables ive used work on other computers, and ive used every single slot (which work on all the other computers).

    Perhaps you have some malware or a hijack attempt was made!!!!

    Have a good read of this - - and post a HJT log as an ATTACHMENT and we will be able to sort any problems out if there are any!!!!

    The amber light is normal. I have the same board and the light color is the same.

    Have to go, but more to come. :)

    Can you copy and paste the results of:

    Start > Run > cmd

    ipconfig /all
