Modem router not updating ip address
No internet in safe mode seems to me like it's not a malware/virus issue. First lets try switching cables, and making sure that you are getting power from the nic.
I can't think of any other possibilities as to why I can't get an IP from DHCP... you should have a green light at the connection area of you nic and rj45.
Sorry I can't be more specific for everyone's router but that is the general idea.
I'm using Win 7 but I don't think it makes any difference.
The icon looks like it's constantly "searching" for a connection (blue circle thing) Setting IP manually: Icon just goes to yellow exclamation point.
But it's replaced with a generic "Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem" when I go through the Windows diagnosis.
When set to automatically obtain IP address I get a 169.x IP.
