Wired Network Problem - local only, everything else works?


I am having a problem getting wired network connectivity on a new Lenovo PC with Windows 7 professional.

It is connected directly to a modem. I've tried power cycling the modem, power cycling the PC, recycling the network connection, using the Windows troubleshooter, and none of it works. Also disabled the firewall, and there is no

Here is where it gets weird. I know the onboard LAN card works because not only does it pick up local connection, but also full network connection when I bring the PC to my house and use my internet connection. It also works fully when I plug the network into a different PC.

In addition, I updated the network drivers to the most recent version. Is this a DNS problem? Unfortunately at this time I am at my home with the PC, and it is working (I am on it now), but I am hoping that when I return the PC it is working again.

What gives?
