I just replaced my router and EVERY time I do anything the win 7 machine is a pain in the A to get connected again. My two macs (wireless) and my Vista PC (wired), not one single problem but this win 7 thing I can't get to connect. It is wired not wireless. Is there a good step by step somewhere to help with this. I know enough to get the basic setup done (setup the router no problem) but can't figure this simplified mess microsoft has created.

Post ipconfig /all.
What kind of connection do you have? Any error messages?
Win7 is just as easy to connect as any other OS.

Hmmm that is interesting. When I try to run ipconfig the screen pops up for a fraction of a sec. and is gone.

The config of the system. It is wired, this computer connects to a 8 port switch that connects to the router (Dlink DIR-655, 4 port "N"). I tried going direct to the router and still could not get a connection to the internet.

Thanks

That looks like a good connection, but I don't know anything about the Virtual Box.
Ask a mod (Report) to move this to the networking section.

Not a good IP configuration. Hughv, take another look at the IP address vs. the Gateway and others. :)

The VirtualBox virtual connection is OK.

My first guess is that there are two Dhcp servers on the network and the result is some of each. But, since you are not having trouble with other computers maybe the Windows 7 is messed up. Try ...

(From a JohnWill post)

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

Start, Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

I see why I don't spend more time in the networking section.:)

Please show the ipconfig /all for the Vista. Preferably posted instead of attached ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
