ok when my pc is plugged into my router its like the onboard ethernet turns on and off every 2-3 seconds but when i plug it into the modem it works fine i have 1 other pc plugged into the router it works fine ive tried other ports but nothing this started about 2-3 weeks ago think it started when lightning hit near the house

Have you tried another PC using the same cable and port on the router that's giving you issues?

Certainly sound like something (router or ethernet port on PC) has been given a jolt.

Probably next thing to try is installing a PCI ethernet card. $25ish from DSE or any decent PC shop.
