What IP address are you getting from the DSL modem?

Sometimes,

problems with DSL modems "heal themselves"

if you unplug it for about 30 seconds

and then plug it back in,

wait about a minute while it resets,

and then try again.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

I have tried to reset the modem by turning it off and it didn't work. Thanks for the reply, I believe the problem is something to do with the cable connection or some setting somewhere, I just don't know where. The hardware is hooked up right because I have other PC's running off the modem. Still on the search of the problem and I will figure it out and post the fix as soon as we find it. Thanks again for everyones help. Succor

You say you have not got a gateway address. That would be the reason that it would not connect to the internet. The gateway address will need to be set to the ip address of the router. Normally 192.168.1.1

Also ake sure in the internet explorer options you have in the connections -> Lan serttings Automatically detect settings turned on. This will make sure that settings are automatically pulled into IE.

It will not display a gateway address, I have put it in my self and still nothing. I believe its 192.168.0.1. The LAN setting are set to automatic in IE, I have also used other browsers which should rule out browser problems, IE & firefox is not connecting. :thumbsup:

I know that a gateway & IP address is needed and for some reason its not picking up the gateway address. I did use another computers IP address and the firewall on that computer reconized another computer was using the address. So I know its trying to go through but somethings not right. When I try fixing the connection it tells me windows can't fix the connection.

can you try this please and postr back>
start>run>hit enter>type in "ipconfig /all">hit enter
post back your ip/subnet/gateway/dns please.
192.168.x.x is a private ip address, so you have a router, what is the name brand?

other ideas>change network cable
switch ports in the router to a known working port.
try booting into "safe mode with networking" by hitting f-8 when you boot (POST)
have you done an updated virus scan?

Well everyone the problem has been fixed. The other day the computer crashed an a fresh copy of windows XP was installed :trumpet: , not sure what happened but we don't win them all, could have been a virus of some kind. I checked for virus and never found anything but that doesn't mean I couldn't of missed something, maybe it was a root virus because I never did a root kit scan but I got so into this problem that I never rescanned the computer so no telling.

I thank everyone for replying. Snapper the computer crashed before I could get you infor. you wanted, I thank you for the help.

If this was the cause of a virus I give them there props, :inlove: thats one more for them but I just took out 3 trojans and a worm on a computer this week so thats 4 more for me :flowers: .


If anyones intresed I have a hardrive ? :thumbsup: in the hardware section. Title - Maxtor Thanks again everyone wish we could of figured this one out but thats haw it goes.
