    Is it on a Domain or Workgroup?
    Or is this just a Home standalone computer?

    You could confirm the Ethernet cable is secure, and where it connects to (ie the Modem) is on

    Otherwise if you just want to re-install (using your Windows CD) then I suppose that's cleaner (better)

    Although it can also be a Hardware fault on your Network Card

    Or even in corrupted system Bios setup, you could run defaults in there to remove this option as a possible cause
