    Hay I am new here cos this is bugging me :p

    I have read soooo many forums and have got no where which is a pain.
    Set up is trying to connect PC to Xbox via ethernet to bridge connection, or just trying to connect PC to laptop until I can sort this out.

    Here is a 'short' list of what has been done so far:
    Uninstall AVG
    Assign IPV4 manually/automagically
    Reset the router a billion and 1 times
    Tried a different cable
    Done the netsh and winsock resets
    IP /release and /renew (which does not seem to work for the local ethernet)
    Deleted a load of tunnel connections
    Gone into services and made sure internet something sharing was automatic and started. It won't start.
    Tried to do the thing where you try and set the unidentified network to a home or private network (cant remember how) but that did not work.

    Probably missed 1 or 2 things out but yeah.

    Here is a list of my ipconfig /all results :) (This is with manual IP (Was told no gateway on one of the forums but I have done it with a gateway))

    Thank you for reading hoping to hear back from someone soon before I destroy my PC :p

    (PS: Have not tried safe mode with networking yet, I will do that and tell you what happens)

    make and the model of the PC
    make and the model of the router

    What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, kaspersky or Mcafee or any free security suites like zonealarm, AVG , Webroot etc

    you have set a manual IP on the ethernet and not used a gateway or any DNS IP - sothat will not work

    the wireless appears to have a connection

    lets try a few things - which you may already have done but - sorry, will do them again just to be sure and not make any assumptions

    set the IP on the ethernet connection to automatic again for IP and for DNS

    do a complete powercycle - see below
    do a TCP/IP reset - see how below
    and now post back an ipconfig /all

    also as you suggest try safemode with networking

    Safemode with networking
    with a cable connected from PC to router
    check the cable - see if there is a light on the router associated with the cable port used , also check if you have a green/yellow light on the PC LAN port (some PCs do not have any lights on the LAN port - so ignore)
    - try safemode with networking
    as the PC starts keep tapping F8 - a menu appears - choose
    safemode with networking - see if that works

    ipconfig /all
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
    Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

    If you do not have another PC - do you have a phone connected to the internet - can you photograph the result and post the image in a reply
    Note: you will see entries named Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface: we dont need to see that information - JUST the infomation above those entries

    We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

    For Windows 8
    to open a Cmd Prompt or an Administrator Cmd prompt from the Desktop. Use Win + X and choose Command Prompt or Command Prompt (Admin) from the list.

    This should work for all windows version, XP, Vista, W7
    Hold the Windows key and press R

    then type CMD

    then press Enter to open a command prompt box
    (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

    In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

    Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

    ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

    It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

    Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
    to do that:
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
    all the text will now be highlighted
    Next
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

    Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
    The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.
