    Ok bare with me on this one because I am completely confused with what is going on with my network system.

    I turned on my computer and aparently it had ran windows update and was installing updates. When I logged on there was no message of no internet connectivity. When I tried to browse the web I had no internet. I opened up my network settings and it said I was connected to the internet. When I ran the diagnoses it said that it could not connect to the DNS server. I restarted and did the normal stuff but still no connectivity to the internet. I then proceeded to recover my previous settings and take off this new update. Again no connectivity. I then uninstalled my LAN driver and reinstalled... Nothing. I have come to a dead end and still no internet. I tried just plugging the same ethernet cord into my laptop and it worked!!!! but it wont work on my desktop.

    Please any help would be greatly appreciated.

    asus p9x79 pro MB
    16 gb gskill dimm

    My LAN driver and connector is on the motherboard.

    Try pinging your router...?See if you get a response?
    try running command line and using ipconfig /flushdns

    ok your on a Lan then it sounds, what you need to do is ensure the lanport is enabled in the bios/UEFI, the driver installed for that port and while in windows open The Command Prompt as an Administrator

    ok go to start menu, open accessories, right click on the Command Prompt shortcut and Run as administrator.

    type in netstat and press enter and see if you are actually getting a connection at all then after it completes

    type in ipconfig /release

    then ipconfig /renew

    that should help solve the issue

    Try to restart 1 more time. Normally network issues can be on server side

    But what do you think about the fact that the same port will work on my laptop? But not on my desktop?

    If the port on your motherboard is not working/has died, then not much, except a new nic will help.
    Hopefully, that is not the case.

    However, try this:
    Firstly, run Malwarebytes, if it is clean then...
    Download and run Complete Internet Repair, check all the boxes, then click go, and reboot when it finishes.

    Edit:
    Let us know how it goes.

    I dont think it is the port because it reads the connectivity
