    I have my internet hooked up to a DSL Modem and a Wireless Router. But I had configured the Wireless Router wrong that I couldn't connect to it using a WiFi. I was going to reconfigure it but the Netgear Router was outdated that their reconfiguring URL no longer existed. So I went out and got a *NEW* Netgear Router. Prior to the *NEW* Router I had a Laptop and a PC connected via DSL Cable connected in the Wireless Router. Now with the *NEW* Router I had just purchased I connected everything just like I had done with my previous Router. Wireless Connect works great but I can't connected using the DSL Cable connection. It does not respond. I tried connecting the cables to different ports but it didn't work. My PC mainly needs the wired connection cuz it's where I play my Online games. I tried playing with my Wireless connect but it lags very bad. Can someone help me figure out how to get the wired connections to work ?? :confused:

    how many pcs are connected by wire?

    lets see an ipconfig /all with just the cable connected


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ipconfig /all
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

    We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

    In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

    Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

    ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

    It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

    Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
    to do that:
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
    all the text will be highlighted
    Next
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
    Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

    I solved the problem. There was a cable I did not notice and didn't plug into the router. That must of been the cable needed for wired connection. Everything works fine now both wireless and wired connection. But my husband's computer seems to be having issues with Local Area Connection having limited to no connectivity. I dunno how to fix that. I've tried cmd codes but it didn't fix it.
