Windows 7: Can't connect to the Internet hardwired

Can't connect to the Internet hardwired

I have windows 7 64 pro and I am having internet problems.

I am able to connect to the network (which has 2 other computers on it running Windows 7) but not to the internet.

I am hardwired from my router (linksys WRT54G). Sometimes it is able to connect and sometimes it is not (mostly not).

I have 2 other computers (one wireless, one hardwired) that are connected to the internet on the linksys WRT54G.

I've tried 2 motherboards (thought I might have bad Lan on 1st mb) and I am getting the same results.

Any ideas what the problem is, and how to resolve it?

Swap out the network cable with a known working cable, try a different router port, and make sure the network adapter is working properly in Device Mgr.

I updated bios on the new motherboard - tried it on the old mb and it didn't solve it. Then I reinstalled windows 7. Installed newest drivers and finally got it to work. I had tried all that on previous motherboard in addition to the steps above and couldn't get it to work. Thanks for your suggestions.

Well - internet is out again. Did Windows Update first time from Fresh install - restarted and still had internet. Did Windows Update a second time - restarted and still had internet. Did Windows Update a 3rd time - restarted and no internet. Tried to system restore back to 2nd update - no internet.

It's either Windows update or printer that must be causing an error... any ideas?

I plugged a new cable in... I've tried every port on the router... and modem. Device Manager shows no errors. I plug a USB wireless Adapter into the usb and I can connect... but I don't want to connect via wireless adapter my computer is 2 feet away from the router and I want to hardwire it. Someone please help.

Finally figured it out. Bonjour was adding 0.0.0.0 as default gateway and causing problem with network. Disabled Bonjour and it was fixed.
