The network icon on the bottom right of the task bar appears crossed out.
If I open the network center it says I'm not connected to the internet or the LAN.
If I run the network diagnostic test it tells me that I need to install an adapter.
If I try to configure the network adapter (in network center) the page just stays blank as if it were trying to load but it never does.
In Device Manager under monitors no network device appears at all.
If I type 'ipconfig /all' under Local Area Connection the physical address appears as 00:00:00:00:00:00
If I type ipconfig /release and /renew it tells me that no adapter is available to perform the operation.
In my router the computer is no longer listed under the DHCP client list.
But the light on the Ethernet card on the back of the computer is still on.
