I used to have a network, with this computer being the client pc, but once my bro moved away, he took his computer, therefore we no longer have a network. But the problem is that ever since he left, this computer still thinks its apart of a network (I'm guessing that diagonsis) and I have to have "Local Area Connection Internet" turned on to turn on my actual internet connection. Also, as you would guess "Local Area Connection Internet" has the error message "Limted or no connectivity". So if anybody can tell me how I can use my internet without haveing to turn on "Local Area Connection Internet" I would be grateful.

I'm not so great with networking, but I'm pretty sure there is a simple way to fix this problem.

Thanks.

If you're using dial-up, and not using the Ethernet connection, you can disable the NIC. Open Device Manager and disable it there, the message will go away.

I have a DSL connection. Before I was networked to my bros pc, therefore the internet connection went through his computer to mine, now the internet connection goes straight to the DSL modem.

If it's DSL, chances are that your machine is not set up correctly since DSL usually requires you to enter the information directly.

Hey JW! :)
