Okay, so here's my dilemma. I've got something that's screwing up my internet, and I'm not sure if I can get it fixed. I'm wondering if anybody knows a way to save a connection or something so that if I were to reformat my computer, reinstall the OS, and then restore the connection setting exactly how it is, with how it connects to whatever IP gateway and DHCP server and whatnot.

What type of internet connection to you have now? Is it dialup, cable, DSL, satellite, etc? Who is your ISP (Internet Service Provider)?
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I think its Fixed Wireless....

It just goes through the Local Area Connection...

ISP is a local one, and not a large one, like Quest or Comcast.

As long as you are not using a static IP, just make sure you reinstall the drivers for your network adapter after the reformat....then go through these steps if needed....

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click Network Connections.
3. Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties.
4. Click the Wireless Networks tab. (Find your network, double-click and input the network key if required.)

A list of wireless access points appears in the Available networks box.
