Hi, this seems like kind of a wierd one that i'm having. I just reformatted my computer due to a bunch of virus issues. Got all the drivers reinstalled and got onto the internet. For some reason the internet has been running kind of slow and a lot of the time in internet explorer and firefox it will say a page cannot be displayed and that it cannot detect an internet connection. So in IE i'll run the connection test, and it still won't find a connection. Yet I'll have Utorrent running and AIM and they will both be working with no problems.
The wierd part is, that I'm connected with an ethernet cable through my wireless router. So troubleshooting, just to make sure it wasn't the router, I unplugged the cable going from my computer to the router, and just plugged that directly into the back of the cable modem. When I do this windows says that I have a network cable unplugged. and On the back of the computer where the cable plugs in, there's usually an orange and green light that come on, and it's just the orange one. I went through every setting imaginable, switched cables, and reinstalled the drivers.. still says that the network cable is unplugged.
The second I switch the cable back into the router, and the router to the modem. My internet works again. but it's still flakey and will give me the page cannot be displayed all the time. Any help with this will be appreciated.
