I've recently moved and aquired both a new modem and router. Since getting the new router, it's actually my room mates and is only new to me, I've had internet issues. I can connect directly to the internet via the modem but when I try to connect through the LAN on the router it will only let me connect locally. My room mates are able to use the wiresless even though I can not connect through the wired connection. The router is a Linksys WRT54G and the modem is a Motorola SURFboard SB6101U.

So far I've tried unplugging everything and letting it sit before plugging it back in and releasing and renewing my IP address as well as disabling the old connections that showed up in network settings. I've seen that there are a good number of these problems happening across the internet on the Vista platform but I couldn't find an answer that worked for me. Thank you in advance for your help!

Please do the following and reply with the result:

Go to start -> type cmd in the search box at the bottom (or click 'run' if using win. XP) -> hit enter ->type ipconfig /all -> right click and click select all -> hit enter -> paste the results back in a new post. I will then try to work out what is happening.


EDIT: Your screen should look something like this:Windows XP Professional-2010-08-22-11-27-04.png
