So here's my issue I recently installed Arkham City on my computer played it for a while, tried google chrome, gave me a corrupt profile error or something (internet still worked and was connected at the time) restarted my computer and now it's telling me there isn't an ethernet cable connected to my computer.

Here's what I tried so far:
-Uninstalling and reinstalling the driver
-Updating the driver
-Using the network troubleshooting for windows 7
-Doing a system restore before I installed the game (gave me an error saying could not complete restore)
-Currently scanning my computer in safe mode with networking (seeing if that might work, doesn't) with malewarebytes
-Unplugged and replugged the router and modem
-Checked the router on another computer to see if there's a connection (there is none)
-Checked the router to see if there is a light in the port connected to the ethernet, it's blinking at a very slow a steady pace, unlike the ones around it which are solid green lights
-Tried the ethernet cable on another computer, works fine.

So I'm at a loss, I feel like it's a software or router issue, but I'm unsure of what to try.

computer specs:

Windows 7 64-bit home premium edition
Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P
NETGEAR router WNDR3700

so no other computer can work on any of the ports on the router - correct

make and model of the router

sounds like a router issue - I would suggest logging into the router and making a note of the settings and then reset the router

I fixed it I think. Just turned the computer off for a bit, checked the bios to make sure lan was enabled and it was. The port seems to be working just fine now.
