For a while, my cable provider went bankrupt so I was getting no connection through my cable modem, so i used AOL free trial and dialed up. Now, my cable modem is back up and working (my roommate is connecting fine), but my ethernet card is not finding the right IP address. It is finding my computer's IP address, rather than our router/hub's IP address. I think that's the problem, but do not know how to fix it. So right now, I have no internet connection. I removed AOL by the way.

Also, under "network" in control panel, the only things listed are my linksys ethernet card, and tcp/ip. However, before, there was a specific tcp/ip for my ethernet card listed.

Any feedback is appreciated.

try adding a NIC (linksys) tcp/ip adapter
click on your NIC in network properties
add
protocol
microsoft
tcp/ip
etc

seems to be what you're missing
then add your setup info where it belongs
- check your roomie's or cable site (duh, how he says :) ) for the specifics

i'm kinda rushed, may be sloppily incorrect in a spot or two
but looking at your roomie's set up would help

is it 2 PCs connected to router, router to cable modem?
if so, the roomie's set up should work for you as well

in your tcp/ip settings
highlight your card and remove it from the box
do the same with client
and apply
do a restart as required and tcp/ip should reinstall all the necessarry protocols
if it doesn't you will have to do it manually
