Thanks Mike, but I've already done this step. I repeated again just as you suggested and get the same disappointing result and ipconfig.

My problem is solved. As usual the solution was very simple.

I think all I would have needed to do was to unplug and power down everything including the power to my cable modem. Then, in sequence, plug in the cable to the modem, plug the ethernet from the modem to the router, ethernet from the router to the computer. Then, power on the modem and let it find its address for a few minutes. Then, power on the router and let it find its address for a long time (I left it for an hour and a half--but probably didn't need to wait that long). Then power on the computer. That's it, everything is now working with my MB LAN connection.

I hope this helps someone else...

Hello azn,

I would like to apologize that your post/problem was overrun, that is the reason that when a person has a problem, they start their OWN post, it helps us to help both people. But, since we are still pretty much at the start of your problem...

Let me start by seeing if I have this correct. You have 1 PC. You HAVE internet. You can connect to the internet. But when you connect to internet, it says your LAN is not connected. You still have internet right? If so, to be honest, I'm not sure I'd even be worrying about it. Since you only have 1 computer, you really dont' have a LAN (some considerations aside). As long as you can connect and use the internet, you should be fine. If this is INCORRECT, please post back with more detailed description.
