One windows seven workstation has lost its connection to the internet.  it does not matter what browser is used. the network icon in the system tray has a little yellow triangle with an exclamation point and when i troubleshoot it says "the remote device or resource won't accept the connection detected"  I tried this solution http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737 but it did not help, I tried rolling the PC back with system restore but that didn't help.  The PC can access all resources on the windows network so it is not a connectivity problem. All other PC's on the network can access the internet.

Hi,

could you please check that you don't have a virus/Malware.

After that please try:
IE 8 under tools>internet options>advanced>reset

The network icon is the symbol for a domain network it is a large and small blue box with our domain name underneath. It is followed by a line with a red "X" in the middle and then the internet globe symbol. This PC does not go into a hibernation mode.

In device manager

remove the network adapter.

then rescan for new devices it will detech the network adapter.

Also were the cable is plugged in do you see any lights lit up?

On the switch is that port lit up?

Try reseating the cable?

Is this a PCI card or intregated network adapter?

Check with manufacturer for any updates to it

I removed and re-added adapter yesterday and again just now with no change.  I reset cable yesterday with no change. There is a solid light on the adapter and switch.  The user can access mapped network drives and Echange server without problem.  I switched patch cables/building wiring and switch port with another PC with no change.  It is an integrated Broadcom Netextreme Gigabit controller with up to date drivers.

Ok sounds good

Sometimes the onboard components just go bad.

I would look into getting a PCI network adpater very inexpense.
