    Ok, here goes. A couple of times MY PC internet would stop working, after a few restarts and "miracles", the lights would come flash on the connection in my PC. This time, its stopped and has not worked in a few days. It is a direct connect to my router. My wife's computer, which is direct connect to the same router, works perfectly fine. I switched out cables, switched out to different lines on the router (has 4 connections), and still nothing. I connected my laptop direct connect AND wireless, and nothing. And my wife's connection still works on her computer. Thing is I am getting 2 different errors.

    PC : "Network Cable is unplugged"

    Laptop : "Local Access Only (No internet)"

    Also on my PC when I load it up, it will sometimes freeze on the "Welcome" screen, or it will pass the Welcome screen and freeze with no items on the desktop. I have done virus scans with AVG and Malwarebytes and no infections are present.

    Main problem is the PC, however Laptop is still spitting out the "local only" errors in direct connect AND wireless. Any more information you need I will supply.

    I also checked ipconfig on my PC and I am getting a "media disconnected" message"

    First Name:
    just to confirm
    you have three machines
    1 = PC
    2 = LAptop
    3 = Wifes PC

    only your wifes PC works - is that correct

    Make and model of the router
    post an ipconfig /all from your wifes PC - make sure you label it so we can identify it

    then also post the laptop and PC ipconfig /all

    {ipconfig /all}
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here
    We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results here
    -> Start
    -> (XP - enter the following in the RUN box)
    cmd /k ipconfig /all
    -> (Vista or Windows 7 - enter the following in the Search box)
    cmd /k ipconfig /all

    A black box will appear on the screen -
    rightclick in the box
    select all
    control key + C key - to copy

    then reply here and
    control key + V to paste
