I am on a desktop running Windows 7. I always connect to the Internet via an ethernet cable, however my computer doesn't seem to be connecting today despite it running fine last night.

Currently whenever I attempt to connect, my network diagnosis says I am not connected and that no networks are available. My ethernet cable however is working as I tested it on my laptop, (after turning off its wifi) so both the modem and ethernet cable are working.

I have recycled my router, unplugged and changed ports, and triple checked to see that the cable itself is seated into the port but nothing seems to work.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Since you've tried most troubleshooting steps, it's either bad or faulty drivers, some nasty spyware/adware or it could just be a defective onboard network, or network card

You could try booting up with a linux distro such as ubuntu as see if you can connect
