first, change your LAN settings back to automatic. second, open the cmd prompt and type ipconfig /all and copy/paste what it says.

do you have a network connection icon next to your clock? the two little screen?
if not go to your network conenction and put a tick in that box "show icon in notification area when connected".

now double click on those two little screens and click on the Support tab, that will show you your IP address and all other info's

let us know of your findings as this might help in troubleshooting.

Are you obtaining IP Automatically?

Are you using a router?

Have you checked to make sure your Internet is up?
