OK I'm stumped I don't know what else to try..here is my problem...my network connection suddenly is unable to see my network or get an IP address from my dhcp, at first I thought maybe it was just a bad network cable, that wasn't it, then I have tried a different network card, no luck, tried a wireless card which I know works because I took it out of a machine that was connected wirelessly to try it.  All the network cards appear to be working, tried a different port on the hub again no luck, reset everything....hub, router, cable modem still nothing.  None of my settings have been changed, everything looks like it should be working....I give up any other ideas of what I can try?  Thanks!!!

are you getting link lights on your network adapter to turn on when you connect the cable?

Yes to trying a different PCI slot, even a different Motherboard, link lights show a connection.

while you're busy pinging stuff, see if you can set a static IP address and try pinging your DHCP server
