Exclamation Internet Connection is fine, but 0 packets received
Hi, I have recently moved into a new building that has ADSL built-in (just connect to the wall and away you go!). Not for me though! At first I connected by hardwire and "limited or no connectivity" appeared. After disabling "Obtain and IP address automatically" and the same for DNS, and adding my IP address (can't remember where I found it sorry! it was a 168.254 number I think), then the "limited connectivity" sign disappeared and I had a perfect connection. However I still don't receive packets, and my internet won't work.
I have tried a number of things, but it is difficult since I only have access to the internet at work (via wireless connection).

I'll quickly start with a brief history of my networks to give as much info as possible:
I originally was connected via a yahoo broadband modem (model unknown) directly, but a flatmate purchased a computer so I set up a router (model unknown - Japanese model, all in Japanese language!). This worked fine for a long time. I moved into another flat and connected to a new modem (1394 Connection - on OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller) which I have disabled at the moment in favour of my on-board NIC (Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC). I also recently installed a wireless PCI card, which works fine (but not in my flat). This is IEEE 802.11g Wireless Cardbus/PCI Adapter, manufacturer is Marvell. I am not sure of the details of my new buildings network and there is no-one I can ask either! I know it is ADSL and I know there is a username and password I need to use to log-on, but can't see anywhere that I would input it??


Here are my ipconfig/all details:

I have recently reset the IP address on my LAN to the one above 192.168.0.178, but haven't actually had chance to try it yet (I'm at work now). I also downloaded WinSockxp fix, and activated that, so I'm still to find out if that worked. I haven't reset my netsch yet, should I do this?

I'm fairly sure that it's something to do with my IP/DNS because when I had a router I had to change all the addresses, however obtaining an automatic address doesn't work now and as you can see above under IP Address it has a question mark? My other thoughts are that perhaps I should uninstall my wireless, then install the LAN, and re-install the wireless once I have a connection? I use the wireless at my workplace, so I'm reluctant to do this because otherwise i'll have no internet at work either! Actually I'm looking at the ipconfig details now and have noticed that it only displays info for my wireless connection??

I hope you can help, I'm getting a little desperate! Thank You!

p.s. I'm living in China, if this makes a difference?
