    After all it looks like the NIC on the motherboard is dead. 
    That means the NIC does not appear in Device Manager or is flagged as defective there. Or did you just give up?

      Indicator lighting and extinguishing with cable connect and disconnect says some NIC functions are working.

      It shows up in the device manager without any problems but there is no light at the connection at the back of the computer.

        The computer also knows when the network cable is connected or not... just can't connect to the internet.  It can't obtain an IP address and it says thee is limited to no connection.

          I borrowed a PCI network card from a friend and it works fine.  Problem solved!
