    Hey everyone. I've been try to get online with my wireless dual-band Linksys/Cisco N desktop adapter on my Windows XP SP3 to my dual-band N+ Belkins Router, but nothing I do seems to work.
    I can get connected to the network, and I do believe I have an IP address other than the "169" one, but I still can't access the internet!
    It usually returns between low and good signal, with a connected speed of around 200 Mbps.
    The packets sent as I check right now are about 700, and the received packets are 4.
    I've tried many different methods, including [TCP/IP manual IP/DNS server address to automatically obtaining them], [Repair Internet Connection], [cmd prompt: ipconfig /release, ipconfig /all, ipconfig /flushdns, ipconfig /renew], [Computer Management>Services>Routing and Remote Access], and [Internet Explorer Tools>Settings>Connections>LAN Settings>Automatically detect settings].
    My computer is not too far from the router, but it does detect around 5 different networks as well, each one with WEP-security so I can't access them. My laptop is only 54.0 Mbps connection speed maximum, and it's in the same room as my desktop PC. It has "Excellent" signal strength, connects fine to the internet with an average of 14 Mbps download speed, and is running Vista 32-bit Premium.
    I have no clue what the problem is here. Hopefully, someone can help me out >.< Here is my ipconfig:

    Hi:Can you ping the default gateway?
    192.168.2.1.
    Disable all firewalls for this test.
    Your IPCONFIG does seem to show a working internet connection.
    Just to cover this basic,do a stack repair

    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.

    ipv6 sometimes causes problems and is not needed so before doing the above repairs ...

    Start - Run - ipv6 uninstall - OK

    You "always" see it in Vista because it is installed by default, but it has been around long before Vista.

    In XP if you right click on a connection in Network Connections - Properties - Install... - Protocol - you can install "Microsoft TCP/IP version 6." It was put there so that people working with the new protocol could "play" with it, but it seems to get installed by accident or mistake sometimes, and can cause random problems.

    Other hints are IP addresses like 2002:443f:5850:1234:112a:1d26:a388:4c0a and fec0:0:0:ffff::2%1. :)
