Ethernet on but, not working
Hi, This started with a spill (coke I think) I opened it up (this unit sat for about two years before I received it) and seen drops of coke on the optic drive, two drops on the cooling fan. I looked at the board I could not see anything on it. I opened the optic drive did not see any coke drops or stains of coke. I removed and cleaned the keyboard for sticky keys it now is working. Started it up and optic drive spun up went to the install long story short here could not find the hard drive. removed old hard drive installed a new one started back up hard drive found loaded o/s. connected to the internet via cable connection for updates will not go to the internet. went to system preferences/network it says currently active and has a green light then I went to network utility under network interface (enO) states link status Active, link speed 100Mb, it has a IP address yet I can still not get to the internet and I the internet/line cables are all ok because I checked with another computer and I can get to the internet with it.what is going on?
Is this a good question?
