My cable modem stop working, and Comcast ran all kind of test. The cable company said it is not them. That it could be my NIC card inside the pc, what type of test I can run to see if it's my NIC card working right.

Thanks!

Unless you can bring it to another location that has either a cable or dsl modem or network, there is no real good test. Doing things like pinging 127.0.0.1 does not fully test everything. It is kind of like a reverse test, if the ping doesn't work then you know the card is bad. If it does work, you are still not sure. That's why the best test is to actually see everything function.

Another possibility, given the cost vs. all your time, is to just get another network card and cable.
