Ok well I have a HP Pavilion DV2000 series notebook (2415nr) and I have this internet issue. This issue will always give me limited or no connectivity but now changed to local access only (so I still can't use the internet) Is there a way to fix this? I use a Broadcom WLAN wifi card and my router is supplied by cable company and they are my ISP as well. Basically I can't connect via wifi or ethernet and its making me very frustrated. I can't ping anything without General Failure and I want to know what is wrong. It finds other connections extremely easy but just won't connect. It has IPv4 and IPv6 but I am not sure what to do. My other laptops all connect via wifi no problem except for this one. When I have the IPv4 set to get DNS and IP automatically it doesn't have a default gateway and I think DNS server? Its ticking me off because I just put 160$ in a new screen and if the computer is trash I will be ticked. Please any help would be appreciated.

Any fixes?

Need more information? Just post and I can reply asap.

EDIT: Its OS is Vista Also the drivers are all up to date and I think I posted in the wrong section. Sorry about that.
