I have been using a d-link router for some time now and since yesterday it has stopped working ( I have an orange 'world' light on all the time) After looking around this site I have tried resetting etc and nothing works. If I plug the ethernet cable into the modem I can get on the internet if I plug the cable into the router then nothing. These are the details I got from the config all when I plugged the ethernet into the router. Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

Looks like the D-Link has died. Hopefully, I am wrong.

Try this from JohnWill. Doesn't look like a stack issue, but won't hurt.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2/SP3.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, each followed by the Enter key:

Note: Type only the text in bold for the following commands.

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, type: netsh int ip reset reset.log
Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults, type: netsh winsock reset catalog
Reboot the machine.

Thanks for your help. The problem wasn't quite as technical as first thought. My son just came home and realised it was a case of wrong cable in wrong place, he changed them around a ta da it now works.
