Wait, can I ask you a question. Before the lightning struck, was your LAN Ethernet working fine?

Lol I am so stupid for not thinking of this before, sorry. Can you physically check your LAN Ethernet device in your (is your computer a laptop or desktop?) computer. I think that if it was working fine before, then it can't have been a software problem, but a physical problem. I think your LAN Ethernet device might be physically damaged.

HI, well the black box ( modem(?) and all included wires ( ethernet cord. power cord ect) were replaced by verizon 1st as I figured it was the box/connectors that were damaged by the lightening. But when this replacement didn't resolve the problme of not being able to go online I called Dell and after many hours on the phone with their tec support I was informed that it was a software issure since the 'local network inferface driver' was no where to be found...Does this make sence? And the 'local network inferface driver' is the same as the LAN Ethernet device right? So how do I go about physically checking this out? Oh and it's a desktop.

Its a desktop? Great. If your computer was on and connected to internet during this lightning strike, then the LAN must have gone bust too. That is because the modem is connected to the computer, and of course passes currents, so when the lightning strike, the current must have fried your LAN Ethernet. What is confusing though is the fact that your computer still works, as the motherboard must have gotten fried a bit. I am merely assuming btw. It can't be a software issue if your LAN ethernet was working fine before the lightning strike, UNLESS, you changed your LAN Ethernet after the lightning strike.

Can you open up your desktop build, and take a look around for your Broadcom LAN Ethernet device. I am not sure if your LAN Network Device is built into your motherboard, or separate, although it is usually built into the motherboard. Check if the Broadcom LAN device is damaged or burnt or anything like that.

HI, sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. Well, I opened up the tower and looked everywhere all along the motherboard and did find the lettering NIC and just about everywhere and there is no burnt/smokey anything... I was kinda hoping there would be so we'd know what is going on. But nothing. Where the ethernet jack is on the outside, in the inside theres a little metal box that's connected to the board...would it make sence to somehow pry that off and peak underit? If this can be even done?

Hi, Verizon replaced the modem, ethernet/USB cord, power cord and telephone cord. I had figured that it was the modem box which had been affected by the lightning..

So nothing in your actual computer has changed right? Also, was your computer on and being used (connected to the internet) while the lightning happened?
