    I just reformatted by hard drive to clean my computer from too many crappy programs embedded in my system and now i cannot get the internet to work. It says "network cable unplugged". It was working absolutely fine before I reformatted and therefore I do not believe it is a cable or an external connection but haven't tried a new cable. I downloaded the driver lne100tx512 but that did not help. I do not know what to try at this point?? Can anyone help?

    You mentioned the first thing you do have to try in such a case is a different CAT5E cable and look for any possible damage, loose connection and you want to hear a nice clean smooth little click when you connect, at both ends by the way, not just at the computer.

    Did you install the NIC adapter?
    Look in Device manager for yellow marks.
    Look at your LAN connection in Network connections to make sure the "Unplugged" reference is to the connection you're using.

    Linksys LNE100TX wired network adapter:


    Click "Version 1.0". The topmost one that says "V5.0 Driver" is the most current one.

    After the .zip file has been downloaded and saved somewhere, go into the Device Manager and into the Network Adapters, then right-click the network adapter and select "Update Driver". Follow the directions from there to browse to the .zip file to install the driver.
