    Something somewhere between your ISP and PC is not working. Without knowing anything more about your ISP, modem, router, type of connection(s), etc., I'll keep my thoughts to myself.

    At least show the following--that'll give some hints.

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

    There is no evidence of an ethernet adapter. Are you trying to connect via ethernet cable?

    If you are trying to connect via wireless do you detect any wireless networks? Yours? If so, what happens when you try to connect to it?

    Have restored wireless connection but in order complete restoring PC have online downloads to complete so hard wire would be much preferred. Yes physical Ethernet adapter is unchanged from previous working configuration. Looked on MB disk no drivers on the disk, have tried both wired LAN/RJ45 connections on MB
