Ok here is my problem, I used to be hard wired through cable to modem and modem to laptop. I recently bought a linsky wireless router 2300c and installed it. It works like a charm. However, when I try to hook back up from modem to computer as before I cannot get a connection. I have tried everything with no success. Back to wireless it is fine. Any help would be appreciated.

have you carried out a powercycle


------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to power cycle

“power cycle” process to reboot or reset the modem/router
  • Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.
  • Wait at least 30 seconds.
  • Plug the power cords back in, but don’t switch them on.
  • First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
  • Next switch on the router (if a seperate device ) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
  • Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

can we see an ipconfig /all
when its connected to the router and working and again when trying to connect to the modem


------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

Try typing this in the command prompt in windows.

First type "ipconfig /release"

Then type "ipconfig /flushdns"

Finally "ipconfig /renew"

Give that a try.

If you receive the message
The requested operation requires elevation.
Then please open the command prompt as administrator
Start, Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.
