Hi,

Any help is appreciated!

Son hit some keys and now the connection to the internet (Cable-Modem-Router) is not working. At the same time a second user account is no longer accessible (this is not so important).

The other computer connected via router is connecting fine to the internet.

I have tried diagnosing network problems and it came back with a message "LAN 2" is not enabled, I clicked "try to fix" but I can not tell if that has actually been fixed.

I disabled and enabled the network card, but that didnt work, restarted computer all the standard things.

The message on the status bar is "Not Connected- No connections are available"

Can anyone help ?

I tried this, and after the system restore same problem.

When I click on the network status and diagnose the problem it says "Local Area Connection 2 Adapter is disabled".

I click on repair, but it seems the problem status remains "Detected", not fixed.

Any ideas? Thank you

Is the network card enabled and error-free in Device Manager? Is the connection enabled in Network Connections?

Please show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 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.

Hi, I got it to work by deleting the network card adapter in the device manager, restarting the computer, and then using the windows network diagnostic.

Thank you
