Internet Problem

By fuffen ·
I've got three base units which are connected on the same network.
All three computers have lost there internet connection and all three said that a network cable had been unplugged, which it wasn't. I then tested the cat-5 internet cables with a cable tester and on different computers and they worked fine.
On the back of the base unit only the green light is showing, and it flashes every now and then, but no orange light.
When I go into Network Places it shows absolutely nothing it doesn't even see the network card it shows nothing.
Has the network card bust? Or could it be a virus spreading the network as this has happened to three computers already.

If this is a Windows Network

It is most likely some form of Infection if it all happened very close tot he same time.

I have also had the Network Cable Unplugged when a Router/Switch/Hub has failed or taken a hit from a Power Spike.

In a case like that you need to unplug the Power from whatever it is that you are using to link the systems together and see if that cures the problem when you restore power after a power off period of about 20 -30 seconds.
