Can you take another report on the same machine but connected by Ethernet?

*************On a side note, I am actually going to college for networking in I.T. You might not know it because I can't solve this problem which probably seems simple to some, but I haven't had much hands-on training yet. All I've really done is read countless pages and chapters of information on many different topics. My question is, since you seem very knowledgeable on the subject, how can I get more hands on experience without the help of college or an organization? Perhaps mostly from a software aspect as I don't have the resources for expensive equipment (routers, fiber optics, etc.). Also, what other advice do you have for a person like me trying to become a network administrator?

Thank you so much for your time. *******************


I'm not a network expert but work in a place with some network specialists, lets say I work more on the client side at the moment...
For network administrator its very important to get base knowledge (OSI, TCP/IP, etc.) but also specific training from a vendor like Cisco, they have academy's (expensive bu can be almost free if you apply to some colleges) and it's the best way to have access to very expensive equipments like you said. In some cases they provide access to simulators to test configurations, etc.
Another advantage is if you get a Cisco certification then you have something accepted all over the world.
Probably there are other vendors doing similar courses I only refer Cisco because it's one I know a little more.

Thank you for taking the time to help me with that SleepyDude. :thumbsup: I will definitely look into Cisco and their certifications.

I finally got the laptop to connect wired again and I really don't know how. I just randomly disabled, enabled, diagnosed, unplugged, etc, and got it to work again. I ran another report while it was connected through an Ethernet cable and here it is:

Hi,

As you can see connecting by cable the computer gets what is needed from the router...

IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.8.101(Preferred)
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.8.1
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.8.1
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 38.xxx.xx.10


I don't get it because you said IPv4 is enabled for the wireless card!
Try uninstalling the wireless card from the Device Manager, but leave the Driver, restart the computer and let windows reinstall the driver.

I'm sorry, but what do you mean by uninstall the card, but leave the driver, and let windows reinstall it? Wouldn't that uninstall the driver?

In Windows 7 you have to tick a check box to also remove the driver when uninstalling the device.
