Windows 7: Hardwired connection issues...

Hardwired connection issues...

Hi guys, hope you can help me... yesterday, my hardwired connection had no internet connection after I started up my laptop. I tried to troubleshoot but came up empty so I tried WIFI to no avail as well. I went downstairs to the router to see if that was the problem and reset it. Checking my connections to my iPad and cell phone, the connection was good and running so this is clearly an issue with my laptop as all my other devices were connected to the internet.

I did not update anything the day before nor had I installed any new software so I am completely lost as to how this could've happened. I was able to restore from "Backup and Restore", Recover System Settings or Your Computer/Open System Restore and restoring from the day before. I'm not sure why it started saving restore points a day prior to the date of the restore but now there are three consecutive restores from the day before the issue started. I am also pretty sure I didn't mess with any of the settings in the network afterward while troubleshooting. Also, 3 out of 6 restore points are "Critical Updates' and the rest are "Undo'.

When I go into device manager, under network adapters, Microsoft ISATAP adapter, Microsoft ISATAP adapter #2, Microsoft ISATAP adapter #3 & Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface all have yellow exclamation marks. I tried to update them but they were already up to date.

So now, I can no longer use my hardwired connection and I must use WIFI after I restore daily.

Here is the requested data:

1. Is this a wired or wireless connection issue? wired

2. Who is your Internet Service Provider (ISP)? ATT

3. What type of Broadband connection are you using? Fios

4. What is the exact Make and Model of your Modem, Router or Modem/Router Combo - BGW210-700

5. What is the Name of the Anti-Virus, Security or Firewall Software installed from the problematic computer Zone Alarm, Malware Bytes

6. Windows IP Configuration

On the ipconfig it shows network cable unplugged did you have a cable plugged in if so it's a cable fault or Network port. Is the network card OK in device manager

I just checked the cable and it is plugged in. I also went into CMD and next to media state, it still says media disconnected... is this what you're referring to with network cable unplugged?

Here is the screenshot of the device manager, I think it's ok but not sure. The exclamation marks are already the latest drivers.

If it's saying disconnected it's not seeing the cable do you have another cable or can you try it in another PC?

I have just tried another cable that is working on my TV and it says disconnected still. Do my adapter settings matter at all or will it detect regardless? i have tried enabling and disabling the local area connection and wireless network connections to no avail.

Open a admin cmd prompt rgen type these cmd one after another press return after each one

netsh advfirewall reset
netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state ON
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
netsh int ipv4 reset
netsh int ipv6 reset

reboot if it doesnt work then lets see if this tells us the problem


Please download and save FRST 64bit or FRST 32 bit to your Desktop.

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/farbar/FRST.exe

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/farbar/FRST64.exe

Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.

Make sure that Addition option is checked.
Press Scan button.
It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
Please copy and paste log back .
The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe).

These commands were not accepted, the rest were... will wait to hear if I should proceed anyway to the next steps.

hi

could you confirm if the IP address you have set on the Ethernet and WIFI is manual or DHCP ???

If its manual could revert back to DHCP and let us know ?
