This morning, my computer was running the internet fine. However, my three year old stuck her finger on the power button (it is now taped over...) and turned it off while I was still working. When I powered it back up, the wireless router connected and provided wireless internet to the laptop, ipod touch, etc. However, the desktop won't connect. It keeps on flashing :
Local Area Connection 2 - a network cable is unplugged between trying to acquire a network address.
However, it is doing this fast, there is no time to look for a network address since it is literally displaying those messages every split second. I tried disconnecting everything, and rebooting correctly. I tried rebooting the wireless router. Its driving me crazy. Anyone have any ideas?
