All of a sudden my NIC no longer works.
It's actually integrated into the motherboard.
I only see an amber light and green light in the outlet. Not sure what it means. As far as I know, both should be green.
I have no clue what could have caused this. One moment, I was browsing. The next moment, I was receiving network errors. Then, nothing went on line. None of the browsers, nothing could access the network.
I tried uninstalling the driver in the device manager, and reinstalling it.
I checked the cable, took it out, and put it back.
As of now, the cable is plugged into the NIC.
But the other end is not attached to anything because I took it out of the modem.
(That way, I could set up my USB connection to get back online.)
The computer recognizes when I unplug the cable. The device manager tells me this device is working properly.
I'm at a loss here.
