|i recently had a brief power outage and one of my computers restarted as a result.|
since then i have no working network connection- i was accessing the Internet and home network drives the day before on the computer, so i think the power outage may be the culprit.
i have an IP address, but i can't even ping my home router. there are no indications in Windows of a faulty network connection- everything looks as it should until i try to access Internet- i will sometimes get the dialogue which indicates that there is no network connection available, and gives the options of retrying or working offline. all of my other PCs (connected to my home router) are able to access the Internet and network shares with no issues.
i've tried doing a couple of checkdisks on the system drive, and even used system restore to restore the system files back to the date before i discovered the issue, but no go.
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
