Hello,
Today this morning I was looking at my computer case, and looked at the fan and saw it was really dusty, I opened up the case and cleaned it out a bit using damp wipes. I was curious and touched a few things in there, after this my Ethernet stopped working, my desktop is Ethernet only. I checked the routers and everything and the cables. They were all fine. Wifi on my iPad is fine. but on my PC the
Ethernet was bad. I did multiple solutions but couldn't fix it. I believe the main problem is that I touched something and that killed my Ethernet.

Did you use external LAN or Ethernet card?

Then try to remove your LAN card in your motherboard and replace it again may be it is loose contact!
