My Ethernet is giving me "Unidentified Network: No Internet"

I have been working on this for the better part of a week.

I have tried setting my DNS servers to and my alternate DNS server to and then manually configuring my IP address. I have also tried doing the command "ipconfig/release" and "ipconfig/renew". I uninstalled and reinstalled my ethernet driver and I also reset my router. And today I reset my computer and was hoping that would fix it. It didn't.

If there are any other tips that you guys had that could help me. Also if you need my IP information, I can provide that.

Sounds more like a bad cable, port or router.

Why do you suspect your PC?

Did you put it back to normal (DHCP) and then boot Safe Mode with Networking?

Identifying a bad port

I did boot it to Safe Mode. How would I go about identifying whether or not the cable or port is messed up. The router appears to be working fine at the moment.

How I do that.

I work with an office, sometimes kibbitz at the repair area so when I work this I'll swap in a new cable, test if my laptop works on the connection and then work as if the PC is broekn.

You didn't tell me how the SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING worked out so I take it didn't.

You're right

Yeah it didn't work out when I tried it. I will try those! Thanks a lot!

Bought a new cable

Went out and bought a new cable and that doesn't work. Plugged in the laptop and it doesn't get connection either so I guess it's the wall ethernet outlet. Thank you for your help!
