This time, I use the Windows XP Laptop connected to the Vigor Router/Modem (Using a wire because I don't know the password). It shows a different IP which I am certain is my real IP.

This is from the Windows 7 Laptop (The one with no problems connecting to the internet), connected wirelessly to the Netgear Router. It appears to be the same as the windows XP Laptop. (On first glance)

OK New revelation. I tried using my Working Windows 7 Laptop, to bridge a connection to my xbox, but I still lost the connection to the EA-Servers. However It didn't seem to affect the Laptop's internet at all...
But Now it says I'm not connected to the interneton the laptop, even though I am.
If I click on the "not connected logo" (Wireless sign with a cross through it), a popup comes us and says I am connected... Not making much sense...

Yes that's it. now follow these directions

1. Click Start and then Control Panel, then select Network Connections. Once the Network Connections window opens, you should see your network connection labeled. Many networks and computers have more than one network connection. Choose the network connection that you use to connect to the internet. ( you will use the wireless connection) Once this network connection is selected, right click and choose properties.
* Hint: If you are having difficulties finding the network connection that is used to connect to the internet, one way to make your search easier is to disable one connection at a time and then test using your browser if your internet still works. If your internet no longer works, then the network connection you disabled is the one that you use to connect to the internet.
2. In the Properties window, select the General tab and then click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Once this is selected click on the Properties button.
3. On this screen, choose the following radio button: Use the Following IP Address and then you will fill in the following information regarding:

* IP Address
* Subnet Mask
* Default Gateway

Put the numbers in so it looks like this

* IP Address 192.168.1.20
* Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
* Default Gateway
192.168.1.1

There will also be two radio buttons. Choose the radio Button: Use the Following DNS Server Address. There are two more fields to fill in, they are:
* Preferred DNS Server
* Alternate DNS Address

Put the numbers in so it looks like this

* Preferred DNS Server 192.168.1.1
* Alternate DNS Address
192.168.1.1

Once this information has been added, click OK. A static IP address has been set for Windows.

I'm looking over the Autoruns and will get back to you on it. If you have removed programs or files from the list then please resubmit the new updated results from Autoruns.

OK, I tried the above.
However It wouldn't let me use the same DNS number for both if that makes sense...
So I had to get rid of that and left it blank. I pressed OK, and it did reconnect, however I didn't have any internet or skype. So although saying it was connected, it wasn't I guess...
And I've just tried turning off the "Client for Microsoft Networks" Which appears in the same box as the Internet Protocool (TCP/IP).
I don't know if that could be affecting my internet connection?

make sure the first DNS server has the address of 192.168.1.1 leave the second one blank unless that's what you did already? if 192.168.1.1 doesn't work try 10.0.0.1

When you say 192.168.1.1 does work try 10.0.0.1, do you mean for the DNS?

You might try using Google's DNS servers instead:

Primary 8.8.8.8
Secondary 8.8.4.4

Do this, Go to this link and download http://www.filehippo...nload_ccleaner/ the one you want is in the top right of the window and it says

"Download
Latest Version
#.## MB

After downloading Install it and then open the program and go to the "Tools" Tab

Next click on the button that says "Start Up"

This will show you a list of all the programs that start when windows starts.

Click on an item and on the right side of the window select "Disable" This will prevent them from starting.

Look for these items:

AppleSyncNotifier
CanonMyPrinter
iTunesHelper
QuickTime Task
SunJavaUpdateSched
Skype
GoogleToolbarNotifier

Next look through the rest of the program and you will see options to clean your system ...Use it.

When you're finished, reboot the pc.

After reboot follow the instructions below.

Not sure where you're located but if you're in North America then you should download new drivers.

http://esupport.sony...id=1776&os_id=7
Or go to the laptop manufacturer's website in your location and download the latest drivers and save them to the desktop.
The wireless card in your computer is the LAN-Express AS IEEE 802.11g miniPCI Adapter according to the autoruns txt.

You also should download any other drivers that might be out of date for your computer.
Make sure you have all the latest windows updates.

Next:
Go to start, run, then type in DEVMGMT.MSC this brings up device manager.
Next look for the wireless network card and uninstall it. Do this by right clicking on it and selecting "uninstall".

Reboot your computer and install the drivers that you downloaded earlier. If "found new hardware wizard pops up just cancel it and continue on with installing the drivers you downloaded.

I'm not sure if the drivers for the network card will contain a network manager or not. But regardless, you can try to connect at this point.

If you still cannot connect the do this.

Shut down the Draytek and the netgear router and all computers and any other device that will attempt to connect to your network.

Leave everything off for 1 minute. then restart the Draytek and let it boot up until you see that it indicates connection via the lights on the modem.

Then start the netgear router and let it boot up and wait 1 minute. After that, boot up the window xp laptop and try to connect. Do not turn any other devices on until you have attempted to make the wireless connection with xp laptop.
