Let me start by explaining the computer setup in our house. Our home computer, an Dell XPS 8000 (Windows 7), is connected to a modem, which is connected to a router using cables. The home computer does not use wireless. The modem is a Siemens Speedstream 4100 and our old
router was a NETGEAR WPN824 v2. When the router and the modem were connected, I was able to get wireless from my room, which is about 80-100ft away (its on the opposite end of the house). Now, in an effort to increase our upload and download speed, we bought another router. The new, and current, router is a NETGEAR WNDR3400. We swapped the old and new router. The new router is assigned as DHCP
Now, here's the problem. When we installed the new router, everyone could get internet except for me. At first, we thought that my computer couldn't pick up the signal due to range, but my brother's laptop could get signal, which is located further away from the router. Next, we thought that my networking card (Zonet ZEW1642) was going bad. It would get signal, but it wouldn't load any pages. We bought a new networking card to test to see if my old card was faulty. Well, both cards experience the same issue. The new card, a Sabrent PCI-802N get better signal strength but I cannot load any pages. Home computer, Itouch, laptop,and cell phone and the Xbox 360 are connected to it, and work fine. It's just my computer.
So currently, my computer has the Sabrent in it. My commputer is an old Dell Dimension 4550 (Windows Xp). When we are connected, but can't load any pages, the status window says something like this. Packets sent=500; packets recieved=15. So my computer is not recieving packets, but it can send them out. So we tried the following command prompts:
netsh winsock reset
netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh interface ip reset C:\DAF-interface-resetlog.txt
netsh interface reset all
netsh firewall reset
ping 10.0.0.7 (my machine. Worked)
ping 192.168.0.1 (router. all for attempts failed)
We manually set the my IP to 10.0.0.7, subnet mask to 255.255.255.0. I have tried a surfeit of options and nothing has worked. Please help me!
and can a mod add an N to my title, I have a bad keyboard
