Can't connect to internet on one PC

Specs: Windows XP, 4GB
Ok so here is my problem. I recently built my own computer and have had no problems at all. All of a sudden my internet stops working on just that computer. I have 3 computers in the house and the other two are working just fine.

I have gone to command prompt and did that ipconfig /all and got:
Windows IP Configuration

I've gone to my network settings and tried repairing my network card and it says there are no problems whatsoever and i have even tried reformatting and reinstalled everything.
I then tried pinging my default gateway and i timed out everytime. This is where I'm at a loss so can anyone help me?

Open CMD and try these two commands and see, the result.

tracert 68.87.69.146

tracert cns.beaverton.or.bverton.comcast.net

The first command makes a traceroute to the first listed DNS server in your configuration.
If this is working, you can get out through the internet.

The second command makes a traceroute to the first DNS server, but it must first resolve the name to get the ip address of that server.
If that doesn't work, you got an DNS problem.
In this case, post the result, on where the traceroute stopped.

for the first request it said it timed out every time. And for the second command it was unable to solve the name.

I talked to comcast last night and they said that most likely my network adapter has stopped working correctly.

Couldn't say that at this stage, because the only thing we know right know is, that you can't get out and can't resolve hostnames.

Can you ping your router (192.168.1.1)?

If not, have you tried to use another cable?

Also have a look at your router.
When a computer is connected to it, there should be a LED flashing for the port, the computer is connected to.

yeah i've already tried pinging my router and it times out. Tried two other cables and both don't work and all the right led lights are on. I've also tried resetting my modems and router

Ok, what does the network environment show up.
Is there listed a LAN-connection or is it shown as e.g. LAN-connection (2) or something like that?

Is there more than one network card installed in your pc?

it says Local Area Connection 2 and there is only one network adaptor and it's integrated into the motherboard

This might be the problem, because if there is only one network card installed, you normally have "Local Area Connection" without any number.
The number indicates, that there is another old configuration stored in the registry of windows.

This shouldn't be a problem, but sometimes it is.
I had such problem month ago.
I deleted all the entries of Local Area Connection in the registry and restarted my computer.
But if you plan to do this, you should know how to do this, a mistake can cause you windows to stop working or may end up in a blue screen of death.
