I have a NETGEAR C6300 cable modem. My PC is connected by network cable to a network card. The network card will not pick up the internet. I can get WiFi from the modem no problem. I have tried power cycling both the modem and PC. I have Hard reset the modem several times. I have used a dozen commands in the CMD PROMPT and no Luck. Still no connectivity.

Here are the IPCONFIG results:

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.19043.1165]

the only thing is said is media disconnected.
That means you need to put a brand new cable directly between the netgear and the PC. If you have in-wall cabling, that is the most common problem area. Connect to the netgear with a single unbroken brand new cat5e cable. You need to do this test even if you have to move the PC to do it.

Thank You for your reply. I put a brand new cable in. I have power cycled both the PC and Router with the new cable. Still No Connection. The problem is with "ETHERNET 2". What other things can I look at or do?
