after a journey abroad, we have returned to our offices to find our laptop can no longer connect to the local network or internet.
we get the yellow exclamation mark on the nic icon in the task bar.
i have tried several things like manually entering suitable ip details in the nic properties, resetting the ip stack with netsh, removing the nic drivers and re installing them, but nothing works.
i have tested the cables and all are error free.
the laptop fails to pick up any ip details if we use dhcp client, and we are just going round in circles.
can anyone assist in helping us resolve this?
windows v7 pro 64 bit is the os being used.
