Limited Or No Connectivity?

I think I have really bad luck with computers;

Basically, my internet randomly stopped working one day and hasn't since.

It says 'Limited or no Connectivity' and when I repair the connection it says the IP address can not be found.
I am running Windows XP Pro. The D-Link Model No. is DWL-G122. I have tried going My Computer/Properties/Network/D-Link etc and it says the device is working properly.

I don't know what happened or how to fix it :S
Help would be appreciated.

P.S.- I saw a topic almost identical to this but after a while of reading it I got confused ><

Ok, lets get this troubleshooted first.
I would like you to do the following for me:

  • Go to Start -> Run.
  • In the Box, type in "cmd".
  • A black box will appear. Type in: "ipconfig /release".
  • After it is done releasing. Type in: "ipconfig /renew".
  • This should renew your connection with your gateway.

IF this would not work, then please follow the steps below.

  • Go to Start -> Run.
  • In the Box, type in "cmd".
  • A black box will appear. Type in: "ipconfig /all".
  • A lot of information will appear, Please right click the black window and hit mark.
  • Select every line of text you recieved and copy it into your next reply.
