See, this is not good.
Why didn't you continue in very same topic, where all your info is present?
I'll ask some mode to merge both topics.
Stay put.

That should have restored your computer to its original state, all drivers included.
How do you know, your original ethernet card doesn't work?

The wireless adapter was purchased seperate from the computer a while ago, and the driver wasn't included and I believe it was installed automaticly from the internet (ethernet connection) when I plugged it in for the first time on my old XPinstall, but now that I have no internet connection it can't search for a driver online

I plugged in my ethernet plug which is working of course (tested on other computers and worked on that computer before the install), and there seemed to be no problems, as under decive manager NVDIA nForce Networking Connection says its working and under network connections it says it is "connected" I;m not sure if that means connected to the internet but internet explorer and everything else internet related wouldnt work so I tried to press repair and I said it attempted to renew the IP address but it failed

Did you set up the network through the "network setup wizard" in control panel?

What exactly is "everything else"?

You never said, what was the original reason for reinstalling Windows.

Let's leave wireless adapter aside from now.
Turn the computer off, remove the card.
Conect ethernet cable to your existing ethernet card.
Disconnect your router/modem from power source for 1 minute.
Power up modem/router and your computer.

1. Click Start>Run (Start>"Start search" in Vista).

2. Type in (or copy and paste):

cmd /c ping google.com>%temp%\$.$&notepad %temp%\$.$

and press Enter.

3. Notepad will open.

4. Copy all text in Notepad ([Ctrl-A], then [Ctrl-C]), and then post it (paste = [Ctrl-V]) in your next reply.

Thanks for helping out. And sorry I forgot to answer your previous question, I re-installed a fresh windows beacause my OP was somewhat old and laggy and the right click did not function, also there might have been some background malware issues slowing my computer, even though I got most of them resolved on this site. after I re-installed windows using the system recovery at boot everyhting was back to normal and my computer was fresh and dosen't have any problems except for this one.

I followed the steps and copied your code into run and got this

Also when I powered the router and computer down then backup with the ethernet cable connected to the card, everything was the same, upon startup the network connection icon in the system tray stated it was acquiring network address, then moments later it said it was connected . then I attempted to launch internet explorer and various other internet programs to test it but they all could get a connection (other internet programs being software and driver updates, AOL, and data error reporting)

Still with your existing ethernet card, try steps listed below...

Go Start>Run (Start search in Vista), type in:
cmd
Click OK (in Vista, while holding CTRL, and SHIFT, press Enter).

In Command Prompt window, type in following commands, and hit Enter after each one:
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew


Restart computer.

If that doesn't work...
Go Start>Run (Start search in Vista), type in:
cmd
Click OK (in Vista, while holding CTRL, and SHIFT, press Enter).

At Command Prompt, type in:
netsh int ip reset reset.log
Hit Enter.
Type in:
netsh winsock reset catalog
Hit Enter.

Restart computer.


If that doesn't work...
Download, install, and run WinSockFix: http://www.softpedia...inSockFix.shtml (doesn't work in Vista)
Restart computer, and check again.

If that doesn't work...
Download Dial-A-Fix (DAF) (doesn't work in Vista):
http://wiki.lunarsof...2C_and_articles

Have XP CD available in case DAF needs a file. Likely not!

Check all boxes on the screen (clear any restrictions if it shows any)
Then click GO!

When the entire page is finished click the HammerHead at bottom to go to the second DAF page.

Here, one at a time, do the below:

Reinstall BITS
Reinstall Windows Firewall
Repair Permissions
Reset networking

Watch for any File not found or other errors and make note as this may lead to the fix!

Restart computer.

hello, so I treied everythin and here are some things that happened along the way

a little while after I entered ipconfig /renew a message in the command menu said- "an error occoured while renewing interfaceLocal Area Connection 2 : Unable to contact your SHCP server. Request has timed out."

I ran WinsockFix and it claimed to have found over 946 error and missing files, but it wouldn't let me repair more than 25 without buying the program...

During the first scan of dial a fix an Internet explorer data error report window came up all well as one for a program called "Dr. Watson" saying they had become unresponsive (I didnt have them open before the scan) then dial a fix became unresponsive and closed. after that I oped dial a fix and unchecked the boxes under register programs(?) and the san went smoothly. then I ran the other fixes and got a log file for the last one in my C: drive thats says,

reset SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{75EFFEA0-2694-4404-B94E-8E63B3B8B102}\AddressType
old REG_DWORD = 1

deleted SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{75EFFEA0-2694-4404-B94E-8E63B3B8B102}\IpAutoconfigurationAddress
deleted SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{75EFFEA0-2694-4404-B94E-8E63B3B8B102}\IpAutoconfigurationMask
deleted SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{75EFFEA0-2694-4404-B94E-8E63B3B8B102}\IpAutoconfigurationSeed
<completed>


but unfortunately none of these steps worked as internet explorer still cannot acces a connection

I'd go out, spend 15 bucks and I'd buy new ethernet card.
