|Yeah, I tried disabling and re-enabling the connection. Unfortunately, that didn't work either. I asked about setting the IP address but as campus policy, they do not hand out static IPs. I suppose I could make one up based on my roommates, I will try that, but I have a feeling it won't work. I am afraid to admit that my NIC up and died on me, I suppose it could have, but it is part of the motherboard. I am using a VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter, if that helps at all. I may take it into PCS tomorrow, if I can't get it working, but I don't know what they are going to do to fix it. I will ask them if they can install a temporary NIC and see if that works.|
Thanks for the advice.
PS - I am still completely open to more suggestions, I really don't want to spend any more money trying to get this thing to work.
