This aint a hardware problem but its kinda stupid in any case. My friend's internet got fucked up the other day. he has 3 computers. 1 computer is running fine. the other 2 are saying that a Network cable is plugged in, but its not actualyl going online. I tried the WinXP Network setup crap and the INternet Connection crap, but nothing helps. SPyware/Adaware/Virii are not an issue.
