    Have a look at this.

    I would start with disabling IPv6 as it would be the simplest fix.

    These are the steps I would try, in order:


    1. We'll try wired first, because that has less variables, so make sure your ethernet cable is securely plugged in
    2. Completely disconnect power from your router, if possible (if it is on battery backup, you can remove the batteries). If disconnecting the power is not an option, hit the reset button.
    3. Completely disconnect power from your dsl modem, if possible (if it is on battery backup, you can remove the batteries). If disconnecting the power is not an option, hit the reset button.
    4. Wait a full minute! It takes time for the units to completely shutdown, even with the cord unplugged
    5. Reconnect power to dsl modem
    6. Reconnect power to router
    7. Wait a full minute, at least, for both devices to fully boot up and connect
    8. Check your computer for connectivity via wired connection
    9. If still nothing, go into cmd (Start -> Run, type "cmd" without quotes, click "OK")
    10. Type "ipconfig /release" without quotes
    11. After command has completed, type "ipconfig /renew" without quotes
    12. After command has completed, check your connectivity again
    13. If still nothing, reboot your computer, check connectivity one more time
    14. Post your results

    That's very puzzling, as your ipconfig /all seems to have a perfectly typical IP configuration.

    In addition to gyclone's procedure I'd also run these repairs on the computer ...

    (From a JohnWill post)

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

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

    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.

    EDIT: I didn't deliberately ignore ckphilli's advice. ipv6 certainly has cause issues sometimes.

    @TerryNet, followed your directions, first two resets worked fine, for ipv6 it says "there's no user specified settings to be reset" not sure what to do about that

    Do nothing! You disabled ipv6. :)

    Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. Also another ipconfig /all as in your initial post.
