Different kind of virus may affect TCP/IP protocol, changing ID or MAC address, blocking a port, or jamming the network communication.

Listing them by name would be obsolete, thousand of viruses can cause the same.

If the problem is a virus, the first thing you can try is doing system restore to a recent date before the problem started.

Before doing system restore, try restarting all network devices, including network drive.

My network connection is gone

Sounds like you have a hardware failure (possibly hard drive), OS corruption or a virus. Try to backup what you can. Run diagnostics on the hard drive. If that is OK run virus scans. If that doesn't do it, you may need to re-install your OS

If other computers in your home network can access internet then on your PC is already virus that is blocking internet connections. Simplest way is to format system or all HDD and do fresh windows installation.

WD external hardrive(320 GB). Every time i connect it to any computer , the computer stops responding. But the computer dictates that there is an external hddrive connected.

Does this happen if you connect it to a different computer?
On the other computer, virus-scan all the files on the drive.
It could be a computer-virus that is getting launched
when you connect it.

Is it your computer's virus-scanner that is trying to "scan" EVERY file, when the drive is connected?

Start the Windows Task Manager. Connect the drive,
and watch the "Performance" tab, to see what resources are being consumed.

Disconnected network drive

you should run chkdsk because this only means that there was a unstability either on your OS, software or files. chkdsk will check your systems integrity and if it finds an unstable file, it will repair it.
