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

... when trying to connect to wireless get an error message saying invalid ip adress configuration,
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.

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.
