I am running a Micron laptop, PII-366 and Windows 2k SP4
. My ethernet connection is through a D-Link DFE-690TXD 10/100M cardbus PC card.
Yesterday morning I could no longer connect to the internet or my local network in the house. Starting small, I checked cables, routers, modem, NIC
, etc. No problems with the hardware.
Called Verizon DSL tech support. Since my other machine (Mac G3, OS 10.4.7) was connecting just fine, tech support said it was an hardware issue and they could not help.
9 hours later, I had tried 3 NICs, 2 modems, 5 routers/switches, and about 20 cables. I nuked the harddrive and reinstalled Windows 2k Pro. No results. The machine shows packets sent, but not received.
I am running SP4
on the clean install, and sfc /scannow showed no issues. There is no other software installed.
ipconfig /all returns:
node type...:broadcast ip
routing enabled...:no wins

physical address...:00-0D-88-1B-71-49 dhcp

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Everything had worked great for many years until yesterday morning. I had not installed or removed any software, and it was fully (as much as possible) blocked from adware/spyware/viruses.
