The problem I am having is with my laptop. I can usually connect to the internet but if I close an internet window the dsl light starts flashing red disconnecting me from the internet. I do have several other devices (desktop computer, directv, etc) connected to the modem using a powerline adapter and there are no problems with these devices when I am not using my laptop. I have also had no problems with connecting a Nook wireless. I have also used my laptop wireless in hotels and other places with no problem so I am not 100% sure if it is my computer, the modem, or the way they talk to each other. My laptop is an HP G60 with Windows 7 Home Premium. This may not matter but it is a 64 bit operating system. I have IE both 64 bit and 32 bit but I have only been using the 32 bit IE because some websites do not seem to work properly. I hope this is enough info and thanks for your help.

lets see the following please

ipconfig /all

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

This should also work for windows 8
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box
(A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will now be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.
