Internet connection problem

I have a desktop PC and it is connected to the internet through an Ethernet cable. The cable runs from my computer to a router/modem from Time Warner cable.Today it said on the notification tray that i was connected to the internet but when I went to Google chrome it said unable to connect to the internet. I also tried with Internet Explorer and got the same thing.
The other computers in the home that are connected still get internet though.
I have tried all the obvious things as doing a virus scan, and unplugging and restarting the router. PLEASE I need help. Thank you

  1. Go to Device Manager-> click on the Ethernet Port and make sure it not disabled. Enable it and try again.

    Where exactly is that located in the Device Manager? Under network adapters?
  3. Click Start-> Type 'Device Manager' in that search box.
    Or go to Control Panel-> Device Manager

    I got to the part where I ping to abc.com and then i got lost. But I was able to ping abc.com though.
  10. one more thing you can do is, reinstall your LAN drivers form your motherboard disc if you haven't done it already.
