There are several reasons for this issue.
Some may be
1) network card disabled.
2) network card malfunctioning
3) OS problems such as improper closing of internet using programs,etc.,
So, Kindly specify when this problem occured. like any new software installation/Uninstallation.

You connect with no modem or router? Unlikely. You must have a device to decode the signal and give you a RJ 45 ethernet connection.
How do you connect? Is it an always on connection?
Your pc will always send packets, how do you know it's sending them? wireshark?
