Identifying Internet loop - no internet connection

Hello

My PC (Windows 7 64 Bit) will not connect to the internet all of a sudden. It stays in an "identifying connection" loop on the cabled connection. Wifi will connect but similarly will not allow internet access.

My ipconfig /all reads:

All other computers on the network run fine

Things I have tried:
Restarting router
Changing ethernet cable
Using a USB ethernet connection
Switching off firewall
Removing ethernet drivers and rebooting for them to reinstall (there are no X or ! or ? on the device manager)
Unchecking ipv6
Removing Bonjour
Malware scan

ipconfig /release throws an error "no operation can be performed on Local Area Connection while it has its media disconnected"

Any help gratefully received.
