Hi, I've just bought an Acer Aspire 5551-A with Windows 7 home premium edition. When I try to connect it to the internet using WiFi it works perfect but when I try to connect it using the broadband connection it won't connect saying there's an error (651) and it also says that the local acces network isn't working but it is enabled. I called my isp and they said I was having a problem with the raspppoe file but I changed it and I still have the same problem. Also tried re-installing my router and changing the ip adress and nothing and both ipv6 and ipv4 are shown as not connected because I don't have network/internet access.
I must say the router works when I plug it to my computer (windows xp) and I have internet access. I don't know what to do...need help please!
Thanks, Micaela. :eek:

Click Start

In the search bar type devmgmt.msc and hit Enter

Click the + next to the pane Network Adapters so it expands, showing all installed hardware.

Take a screenshot of this window and attach the file in your next post.

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

According to that, everything should be in working order.

Just in case, HERE is the LAN Driver for the Acer Aspire 5551.

Install it, reboot, and see if you're able to connect with an Ethernet connection.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or Windows 7

Start, All Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

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

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.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, try disconnecting from the wireless network, plugging in the Ethernet cable, and doing the following:

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[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.
