Specs: Windows 7
Hello everyone,

I've a compaq presario laptop, which won't connect to any wired internet connections, but it does connects through wi-fi. But my other laptop like (this one I'm using to write this) works perfectly fine with the same wired connection. It happened earlier too, but a friend of mine did something and it worked, but this time he says he can't do anything because it shows 0 received in the activity section under "local area connection status". It happened all after I gave my laptop to a shop for cleaning the fan. I'm not sure if he removed something out of it (is it possible coz, it looks like some software prob to me, one more reason I'm not doubting is coz it has happened before.

I see an exclamatory sign in the network icon.

I tried several thing like ip config, updating the network driver, formatting the laptop and installing the new windows7, but nothing works.

Disable the wireless connection then look at the output of the command ipconfig /all

It may help decide what to do next. The normal issue is some gateway address or ip lease or static ip or maybe the router is not offering correct dns dhcp or needs some settings changed or the wiring is somehow wrong.

Hang up and live.
