    Hello,
    I've just installed Windows 7 on top of my old XP machine. For the first hour I had no problems connecting to the internet. I downloaded antivirus protection (AVG) and Comodo firewall and windows 7 began updating itself. The comodo firewall download stalled and I had to manually reboot the computer. It seemed to start fine in normal mode and windows finished updating itself. Since then however (i.e. after the reboot) I have not been able to access the internet with an 'error 651" message displaying. I removed both AVD and Comodo with no change in the situation. I also did a system restore to before the windows updates, still no luck.

    I access the internet via a broadband modem connected to a router. I don't have the full details of the models with me now but can repost in about five hours with the details if needed. I've searched online and note that many have said I should replace the raspppoe.sys file. I'm too scared to go into my registry without help (also note that I don't have access to a vista machine).

    Since this is a brand new instal, should I just re-install Windows 7?

    Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

    Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
    Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

    Type the following command:

    [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.

    Thank you for your time. I've done the winsock and TCP/IP resets. I have not yet removed Comodo and AVG using the tools you linked to (I will do so tonight). There is no change in the computer. I've just noticed though that the "status" and "ADSL" modem lines are blinking. And I tried to hook up the modem to my laptop and could not get a network connection on that either. I think the network card is working as I have been able to go to my router's IP site: 192.168.1.1

    Perhaps it just a question of updating drivers? I'll look for the drivers now. My modem model is D-link DSL-360T and the router is TP-LINK TL-WR740N.

    The config all results are here:
