    You found what seems to be a very unique problem!

    Let's see, no editing this time, another ipconfig /all :)

    "And my ethernet is plugged in."

    Yeah, it all looks good now (it's only the wireless that is disconnected). Except for one thing. I'm sure JohnWill meant to set your ethernet's TCP/IP Properties to the OpenDNS servers. The reason is because sometimes a computer and router refuse to play nice with DNS and the fix (well, work around) is to give real DNS server(s) to the computer.

    OMG YES it works now! Well the first time I tried the OpenDNS, it didn't work. But I tried again just now, and I have internet now.

    Thanks you sooo much TerryNet and JohnWill for helping me. I appreciate it. =)
