    Hi,
    I know this is a recurring problem and I've scoured the forums for a solution but everything I've tried so far hasn't worked. Just got a new modem and it works fine while connected through an ethernet cord but I can't connect wirelessly. My network doesn't even show up in the list of available networks. I'm using Vista by the way. I've downloaded all drivers that seemed to have something to do with my problem. I've done ipconfig /all and these are the results:

    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6002]

    You have a public IP address there, implying that your modem is just that, or if it is a modem/wireless router combo it is bridged (to act as modem only).

    What is the brand and model of your modem?
