Have you tried pinging the loopback address?

127.0.0.1

If you get any responses these will be from the NIC (network interface controller).

I have read that powering down the computer, removing the power source then pressing holding the power button half a dozen times and letting the computer sit unplugged for 15 minutes can free up some NICs.

Edit: also have you checked any Ethernet options which might be present in the BIOS?

Have you tried another cable?
What is the speed reported on your laptop Ethernet port with the dubious cable?
Does the Ethernet switch "see" any incoming signal? (LEDs)

More specifics would help

Well, you've ruled out the cable so that just leaves the network interface on the computer. You've already tried updating the drivers so the next step would be to reset the TCP/IP stack. To reset your TCP/IP stack first open a command prompt window (ie: Start >> Run >> type cmd and hit Enter) and perform the following command:

netsh int ipv4 reset c:\resetlog.txt

(change ipv4 to ipv6 to reset IPv6 in Windows 7 – in Windows XP, all you need is “ip”)

If you do not want to specify a directory path for the log file, use the following command:

netsh int ipv4 reset resetlog.txt

Then reboot the computer.

If that doesn't do the trick, the last thing to do is to remove the device in Device Manager and then let Windows "find" the device again and reinstall it.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Is this a PCI card or is the Eth interface built-in to the motherboard?

If it's a PCI card, remove it and clean the contacts.

If that doesn't solve the issue, then it may be time to replace the card.

Built into motherboard but the motherboard is like 10 days old and not had a problem up until now?

In my experience, no media detection light means one of the ports are bad. Try a different port on the router. If that doesn't work, and you're sure the cable is a patch cable (and not a crossover cable), it might be time to take advantage of that 10-day-old MB's warranty.

The fact that something has been working fine does not mean that it cannot suddenly go wrong. Anything that ever goes wrong was, by definition, OK before that.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I've found it is normally sufficient to just hold the button down for about 20 seconds with all power (including main laptop battery if applicable) removed. I've never found it necessary to keep pressing the button or leave it unplugged. On some systems you see the power light flash which indicates that the motherboard is discharging.

Whatever, glad to hear it worked and that you are now sorted.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Yes Derek's technique would likely work.

Try it if it happens again.

Well on the first press it did sort of power up and then stop really quickly afterwards

Oh well, perhaps NIC cards are harder to discharge and multi-pressing helps then. I was thinking of more general hang-ups.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
