I just built a new computer, and everything was put together and installed successfully. The only step remaining is to connect to the internet.

I'm running windows XP home, using a Gigabyte brand S-series motherboard, using the drivers supplied with the motherboard.

When I look at the network connections, they tell me that I am connected to my FIOS internet, and even though I have the same network settings as my dad's computer (which can connect), none of my internet programs can access the internet.

I've tried reinstalling my drivers, turning the router off and on, disconnecting and reconnecting the ethernet cable, and called my ISP, which tells me that the problem isn't with the network so they can't help me.

Please help!

Well, yet again this problem was fixed on my own...apparently the routing through my wall was faulty, and i solved to problem by connecting directly to my router.
