Windows can't connect to internet after power outage, Linux will
So 3 weeks ago I had a power outage. This made my computer not connect to the Internet, but not the one in the living room.
Since the i have been doing a lot of Google'in to try to find a solution - all of which failed. I have tried most of the command prompt inputs including /ipconfigs, /winsock, and a few others. So after a week or so I had the bright idea to boot up Lunix on my pc. The os, which is on my flash drive, could connect to the Internet. I did remember finding a guy who posted the same problem before, but I couldn't find it again. So I'm sorry that this is a other "can't connect to the internet", but add help is much appreciated.

Thing to know,
-ISP Verizon
-OS Windows Vista
-Modem Westell Modell 6100F (F90 6100 15 06)
-Router Linksys NH1005 v2.2

The files myTcp.txt and myTcp2.txt are the results of ipconfig /all. The first one was when the computer was directly hooked upto the modem. The second is when the computer was hooked up to the router.

Since one OS works but the other doesn't, and since there is no evident networking hardware in the ipconfigs, I would guess a driver issue.

What is listed under Network Adapters in Device Manager? What errors or warnings are anywhere in Device Manager?

You're not sounding rude. When you edit a post those of us subscribed to the thread do not get any kind of notification that a change was made. Rather than add anything major by edit--unless it's immediate--it's better to post again.

The ethernet adapter is there. Suggest that you right click on it and uninstall it. Then reboot and let Windows discover the adapter and reinstall the driver. If it doesn't start working look in Network Connections. Is the ethernet connection there and is it enabled? Show another ipconfig /all (don't attach a file; just copy the text here).

Wait a minute. I missed something. What's the deal with the Microsoft Loopback Adapter? I was thinking that's just a software tool, but it's actually a piece of hardware connected to your ethernet adapter, right?

I don't know, my friend and I were wondering what it was in the first place.

But when you boot to a Linux distribution you can connect by ethernet to your network, right?

It saids it's connected to Local Area Connection 2 which is the loopback thing.
And Local Area Connection 1 is the Marvell Yukon thing.

Well I'm not sure where to find the information to see what network I'm connecting to, but here's a screen shot of what I did find.

I do not understand what's going on (or not going on ). The screenshot in post # 11 confirms what you said all along that the ethernet is working in Ubuntu.

The screenshot in post # 3 shows the ethernet in Windows' Device Manager, apparently OK. But the ethernet does not show in the ipconfig /all. Have you checked for the ethernet connection in Network Connections, as I asked about in post # 5?

If you right click on Local Area Connection 1 is one of the choices "Enable"? If so, select it.
