Why did you do that twice, and why did each one show a different result?

Oh sorry the first one was when my modem was directly plugged into my computer, the second one was when my router was plugged in.

Here is a screenshot of the ipconfig/all after I did what you told me to. I was unable to get a connection with those settings even with my modem plugged into this computer.

Well, that changes things -- I assumed that your ipconfig /all from Post #7 was performed whilst you were connected through your router.

However, you can return your settings to Obtain an IP Address automatically now, if you so wish. Your setup was fine.

Were all of the other tests performed whilst you were connected through your router?

Please powercycle your system --
  • Power off your computer(s).
  • Shutdown / unplug your modem.
  • Shutdown / unplug your router.
  • Wait two minutes.
  • Power on your modem. Wait until modem is completely restarted before the next step. This may take upward of two minutes.
  • Power on your router. Wait until router completely restarts. This also can take upward of two minutes.
  • Power on your computer.
Any change?

Please download PingPlotter. Run it and perform a search to the following website: google.com -- Once it is finished, click on 'Edit', and then select 'Copy as Text'. Paste the results here.

Also, have you checked to see if your router has the latest firmware?

Is your computer the only computer on the network? If not, can any of the other computers connect to the Internet through the router?

Do you recieve any errors messages on your LAC? ie: Limited or no connectivity?

No, when my router is plugged in it says I'm connected, but I can't go to any websites and so on.

Also, when I try to get the latest firmware, nothing happens. I click the button that says "get latest firmware" and it just refreshes the page in my router setup.


When I ran that program, it said it could not find host.

Yes I just tried power cycling and it still didn't work. However, while I was waiting for the router to power on, I noticed that the connection light was blinking instead of staying steady. Could this mean anything?

Is it still blinking?

Check DNS Settings
  • Flush your DNS Cache by going to Start, Run, type CMD, and then type: IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS - press enter.
  • Start, Run, CMD - Type: nslookup yahoo.com
    You should recieve a similar result to this:
    Server: gizmo54ps.bigpond.com
    Address: 144.140.71.29
    
    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: yahoo.com
    Addresses: 216.109.112.135, 66.94.234.13
  • If you don't, then do the following:
    (Start, Run, type CMD) Type: nslookup and press enter
    Type: server 144.140.71.29 and press enter
    Type: nslookup yahoo.com
    Now you should recieve a window exactly identical to mine..
Please post the results of these tests (whilst connected through your router, and also whilst connected through your modem).

The top one is with my router, the bottom one is without it.

The ping for the ip timed out, and could not find the host when I tried to ping google.com


And yes, the light on the router is still blinking.

Do you have MAC address filtering enabled? If so, have you allowed your computer access by adding its Physical Address to the list of MAC addresses?

Wow I don't know how to say this, but I finally got it working again...and I'm not sure how. I was just sitting here at my comp trying to get it to work, and when I logged into the router it said Connection OK. 10 minutes later I had my connection back!! Very strange...maybe it was my ISP?


Anyway thanks a lot for spending time to help me out :tazz: If I have anymore problems I'll know where to go. I'm just sorry I can't figure out how I fixed it >.<


Again thanks.

why point .75 at the end. Belkin default IP pool is from .100 to .199 I think it is weird that his router IP is 192.168.2.12 It should be .1 His computer is not the problem. It is the router. Listen just get a new router. His computer can get internet but the router can't. So the router sucks.
