Hey, im having trouble connecting to the internet with my pc. I have a router hooked to my modem, and all the other computers in the house can connect, but mine can't, even if hooked directly to the modem. Now i just formatted my harddrive (but this problem was happening even before) and installed my motherboard ethernet drivers. And i am having absolutely no luck. I have 2 of the exact same motherboards (sk8n nforce3) and i switched them out, and still no luck. I tested my ethernet cord in a cable tester, and all the pins are fine. Can anyone offer suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Have you tried a different port on the router? Did you check the device manager to make sure there are no conflicts? Is your LAN connection configure correctly? (Static or DHCP)

none of that stuff should matter, im just worried about getting it working while directly wired to the modem right now.

Umm yes it does matter.

If you NIC is having any conflicts you will not have any network access. Therefore you should check the device manager to make sure you NIC is functioning properly.

If you LAN connection isn't configured correctly, you will not have any network access. Go to the command prompt and type in "ipconfig /all" (without the quotes). With the computer connected directly to the modem, you should get an IP address from your ISP, an ISPs DNS servers IP address, a subnet mask simular to 255.255.255.xxx (where xxx will be numbers from 0-254), and a default gateway. If you do not have any of these, then you probably will not have internet access.

My onboard nic should be working, i have 2 motherboards and neither one works, the chances of both being bad seem pretty slim to me. I'll get on it later and do an ipconfig to see what comes up, but it hasn't been able to renew an ip, it keeps getting an error.

Some actual symptoms would help...

Open a DOS window and type:

IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

it is recieving an IP from the router. but it isnt receiving a IP when directly connected to the modem.
i normally see that when i forget to restart modem after changing the ethernet to a new computer. If it has an IP from the router it should be able to get online like the other computers do, unless there is a configuration problem, which is what i expect to be the cause. maybe check tcp/ip stack. It has no IP from the modem directly and wont get online that way.
