You need to know the name of your ethernet adapter...
For simplicity, I always rename it to "LAN" for easy access to these commands...
From the START button, open a command prompt and enter the command:
ipconfig /release LAN
then
ipconfig /renew LAN
(If you do not rename the ethernet adapter, substitute the appropriate network name of your adapter)...

Go into Device manager, uninstall the network driver, then reboot.
System should reinstall automatcally with clear repair.
