    Dear max2010gold, as i mentioned above, i am not a professional on this topic. But i would suggest you to borrow a laptop from a friend, connect through WiFi to your home network and follow the above steps to configure the ethernet drivers on your PC with the data you will get from the laptop. I never tried this so i don't know if it is going to help you. (Notice: As some users mentioned you might need try all the available adapters when you run "ipconfig /all" in CMD ).

    Good luck!

    DrikosRikos you are a life saver! I am a complete computer illiterate (for example: I was searching for 20 minutes how to reply to this thread) and I managed to fix my connection.

    The steps were very clear and easy to follow. Good thing there were pictures though, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed that my DHCP was disabled. I googled it (I found the answer on In Microsoft Windows how do I enable or disable DHCP?) and it works like a charm.

    Edit: Maybe just a problem on my end, but after shutting the computer off and turning it back on the next morning things went sideways. Now the computer can't detect the ethernet-cable anymore (which he could before the procedure).

    Edit 2: Definitely a problem on my end, not due to procedure.
