Few days back, I was not able to connect to internet, when I checked out I found following.
1. There was no Network Connection in 'My Network Places' as well as in Network adapters of 'Device Manager'.
2. The PC light (indicating connectivity to NIC) on my Scientif Atlanta 2100 modem was also off.
3. I am able to access net using USB connection of same modem.
I suspect that my onboard LAN is dead due to lightning. How I can confirm that?
If so, my mobo is under warranty period, so should I go for replacement or simply by a new NIC?
