Today I turned my computer on, and last night during stresstesting it acted funny, but I don't have Internet anymore, don't get an IP, can't connect to the gateway, nothing.

The network center in Vista says the above mentioned error, I just don't know what is wrong? Wired network, PC straight to Linksys ADSL Router.

Can anyone help?

Okay, I managed to get that error out of the way, a service wasn't running.

But now still nothing, and when I diagnose the connection, it says that An installed layered service provider is outdated, when clicking remove, it doesn't work either.

What now? I uninstalled NOD32, only thing I could find on the net.

Reinstalled mobo/ethernet drivers, tried repairing windows, reinstalled windows. Restarted DSL modem, (hard reboot), disabled firewall on modem. Still the same problem.

Leads me to believe it's the network cable?! I've probably broken it, because there was no slack, and I've been moving my case quite a bit, and noticed I pulled it really hard. Don't know if it happened after that. But that's the only thing I can think of?!
