This connection has not been restored—What does this mean?

Hi bros,

There seems to be a problem in my PC because, I cannot connect to the network in my office. Today we had an electrical failure which made all the computers to shut down. When the electricity was restored, I encountered a problem connecting to our network.
 
I cannot access the shared folders and printers. I tried to connect manually to the mapped drive in My Computer and this message appeared:
 
An error occurred while reconnecting to T:
 
This connection has not been restored
 
I also tried to configure the IP address manually, but in the end I still cannot connect to the network. 
 
Do you have any ideas on how to deal with this scenario?
 
Thanks.

Dear Brent,

After power failure, we can face many problems and issues like this. Regarding your issue, just do these steps.
 
1. Uninstall your network card driver and restart your system.
 
2. Reinstall your network card driver.
 
3. Setup a new local area connection instead of old one.
 
4. Give a new IP addresses manually.
 
I hope it will work.
 
Thanks.

Hi, there’s a huge possibility that your network card is burned.
 
Try to type the command ipconfig –release and then ipconfig –renew. If your configuration is DHCP, you must obtain an IP address from your server. If your IP address still does not exist, you have to change the network card of your computer. The Ethernet cards have very affordable prices.
 
If you get an IP address, your card is working; unset and set newel your network disks:
 
Net use <unit letter> /delete
 
Ask your system administrator to recreate network disk, on your computer for you.
 
It always has a command like this: net use <unit letter> \serverfolder_path /user:DOMAINUSERID.
