    Hi,

    Please can someone help me to get back my internet connection? I have a belkin wireless router, it's not a direct connection to my cable modem.
    This morning when I turned my PC on I had the 'limited or no connectivity' message, since then I have tried the following:

    All windows options i.e repair connection, reset routers/modems etc.....
    Tried different RJ45 cable
    Reinstalled the network adapter

    I am currently on a laptop conected wirelessly to my router, so I am assuming the problem is localised to my PC and the router.....I also noticed there is a connection (100Mbps) so I am sure it's my internet settings which have scrambled. I am out of ideas so does anyone know what the problem could be? is there a way of resetting the network connection?

    I am currently using Vista Ultimate 64bit edition.

    Thanks

    Phil

    i dont know Vista Ultimate 64bit edition - but assuming its the same as XP for basic commands

    try this first

    Post a reply for the faulty PC - you may have to copy to a working PC

    also post the results for the good PC
    make sure we know which is which

    ipconfig /all

    TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE----

    ONE ---------------------------------
    start
    run
    cmd
    ipconfig /all

    rightclick in the box
    select all
    enter
    control key + C key - to copy
    then reply here and
    control key + V to paste

    TWO -----------------------------------------------

    Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type:

    IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

    Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

    Now this is where i'm not sure
    On winXP you can get rid of IPv6 and uninstall from add/remove programs

    its not needed and that usually fixes the problem

    on vista - i know not

    With Vista, you shouldn't need to change anything in the protocol stack.

    Could be a defective port on the router. Might try using a known working cable and port.
    Could also be a disabled network card
    Could also be a defective network card

    Disabling IPv6 - This has limited connectivity even when IPv4 is working......

    I tried everything and after a day of trying I got annoyed and reinstalled vista and it's working great again now, no idea what went wrong but I must have tried 20 solutions....may have been a dramatic way of fixing it but at least it didnt cost anything :) (y) Thanks for the replys....
