Computer seems fine, but the ethernet input doesn't work?

    Hi there, thanks in advance.

    I've had this computer a few months and so far it works great. Then today I turn it on and try to go on the internet and it says I have no connection. Tried plugging and unplugging the cable, wiggled it around, tried to connect it with a different cable and I still have no internet. The cable is in, it tells me there is a local area connection and all, but when I go to properties there is not IP, etc etc.

    I have it on a network, if that helps, and none of the others have this problems. The computer prints to a shared printer attached to another computer on my network, so I tried to print something to see if that was still working, but it says it can't due to an unknown error.

    Is there a fix for this?

    You might try cycling the modem and router.
    Unplug the power from the back of the router and modem for 10 seconds.
    Plug the router back in and let it boot up,then do the same with the modem.
