Windows 7: Laptop suddenly unable to connect via LAN. (Unidentified Network)

Laptop suddenly unable to connect via LAN. (Unidentified Network)

Hi. I've been googling and trying all sorts of solutions suggested on online help forums but none of them seem to work. Hopefully you guys can help me with it.

I'm using a laptop running windows 7, 64-bit.

My laptop isn't new, and i did not do anything out of the ordinary to it when my lan connection suddenly stopped working. I am an exchange student currently studying and living in a corridor-hostel in Sweden. Every room has a lan connection (directly from the wall). The lan connection has been working fine for the past 1 month. But suddenly, my computer is no longer able to identify it. Other people have brought their laptop to my room and are still able to connect via the lan connection. Thus it is definitely an issue with my laptop.

This is the details when i do ipconfig /all in cmd:

I have tried setting up a static ip using the ip info copied from computers can connect to the lan connection. I have also checked that the DHCP service is up and running. I am sure you notice that the default gateway field is blank. I have tried manually setting up the default gateway via the ipv4 properties -> advanced -> add gateway. However the problem still persists. I have updated all my drivers including the realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller. Nothing seems to work. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Another thing to try is clearing CMOS.
Disconnect all power (no AC and battery removed)
Press and hold the power button to two full minutes to drain any residual charge on the board/capacitors
Reconnect power and test.
