Fenor, it wont let me click release. the only options not greyed out are OK release all, renew all or more info>>. Should I go ahead with release all?
The info in the window says PPP Adapter Adapter Address 44-45-53-54-00-00 IP Address 0.0.0.0 Subnet Mask 0.0.0.0 Default Gateway {Blank}
And all I know about what its hooked up thru is that we have one of those black boxes hooked up to a wireless thing which I assume is what is hooked up to the computer.

Go to START-->RUN and type in: ipconfig /release Then type in: ipconfig /renew. Tell me what it says if any error messages are given. Don't post your IP ADDRESS in here if it doesn't start with 192.168, because you don't want everyone knowing your home IP address.

Sorry about that, but I forget a MINOR step. Below is the modified information from my last post:

Go to START-->RUN and type in 'command' In the next window that appears type in: ipconfig /release Then type in: ipconfig /renew. Tell me what it says if any error messages are given. Don't post your IP ADDRESS in here if it doesn't start with 192.168, because you don't want everyone knowing your home IP address.

Have you rebooted your computer since you plugged the ethernet cable into your computer? Of course making sure it's connected to the router as well. If you haven't, then reboot it.
