    Alright, here goes.

    I was on the computer and all I did was unplug the ethernet cable from it.

    'Twas all.

    Nothing else.

    Then I plugged it back in after a few minutes and I'm unable to connect to the internet. It's amazing how one little action can screw up a computer so freaking bad. In fact, it astounds me.

    I unplugged it because the computer had caught that "Virus Response Lab 2009" virus and I didn't want it connected to the internet while it had it. Then I found a virus removal for it on my laptop (the wireless internet is still working) and wanted to get my desktop back online to download it.

    It just won't connect to the internet. Displaying the ever-so-lovely "limited or no connectivity" warning.

    I'd like to get it back online soon. I've done the iprelease renew thing, that didn't work.

    Viruses are perfectly capable of doing all kinds of bad things without any help from us. Your removing and reconnected the cable did not cause whatever problem you are having unless you physically broke the cable, connector or port.

    If huggie54's suggestion doesn't get you connected, what operating system? If a Windows version, what service pack level?
