    Do not have internet connectivity, despite all the lights lit on calbe modem and the ASUS WL520GU router and only the internet and ethernet lights are lit on the Linksys 2102.

    Despite numerous reboots, no change and even bypassing the router and connecting directly to ATA still no conectivity.

    When I open a browser, it reverts to the Asus error page, "reason for failed connection: You have set the wrong dynamic or static IP address, though nothing was changed.

    Funny thing again, a direct internet connection to the ATA did nothing.

    A google search only just shows lots of unasnered posts on this issue, or only the usual 'please reboot'.

    I am communicating only because my laptop is capturing someone's unlocked wifi.

    It gave me a couple chuckles when I searched for ATA. :) What do you mean by "ATA"? And by "a direct internet connection"? And by "did nothing"?

    Try a connection directly to your modem--remember to power cycle the modem-- and show ...

    Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
    Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.


    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.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

    ATA as in router/adapter Linksys 2102 for VOIP.

    I ran ipconfig/all in dos but a right click does nothing. How can I copy into a text doc?

    Connecting Cable modem to PC, still no internet access.

    Try it again. A right click in the Command Prompt window should result in a context menu, in which you click on Select All . Then you press the ENTER key to copy the contents to the clipboard. You can then PASTE the text to a post here or into a text file.

    Make sure you have the latest ethernet driver from your PC (or motherboard) manufacturer's site. If you already have the latest use Device Manager to uninstall it; reboot and let Windows discover the adapter and reinstall the driver (this is in case the installed instance is corrupted).

    What firewall or security suite is, or ever was, on the machine?

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

    Start - All 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.

    OK Terrynet,

    I did all those DOS commands and rebooted, an I'm back in commission. :)

    What apparently happened, you restored defaults?

    should I delete the IPconfig/all contents, as it may pose confidential info?

    Thanks!

    Stuff Happens! Actually, there is a bumper sticker that better describes that, but I dare not quote it exactly here. :) Nobody seems to know why the stack or WINSOCK sometimes gets messed up, so we just try to fix them when that may be the problem.

    There is no security risk to what you posted. Just shows that Windows was assigning an Automatic Private Internet Protocol Address (APIPA).

    You're welcome. :)
