    The issue with my internet is that it works whenever i use my wireless internet, but doesn't work if i use wired. I know my router works because there are 2 other computers connected and they work perfectly. Also I know my cable is fine because i use it for online play with my playstation. My computer recognizes that there is a cable plugged in but i can't get a connection. Is there something that can be done.

    Im running:

    Windows XP
    Netgear WG311 802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter

    Please help me out if possible.
    Thank You

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

    You don't have any wired adapter that's correctly configured. What do you see in Device Manager under Network adapters? Are there any devices with yellow error flags? Have you tried reloading the NIC drivers?

    I checked under network adapters my Broadcom 440x 10/100 integrated controller was disable so i enabled it and still nothing. However it does show that i have a connection of 100mbps but nothing is happening in the browser.

    i checked in the Local area connection status and 53000 were sent but nothing received Hopefully that helps

    Well, not it's indicating that it can't see a DHCP server. Try a different port on the router, and just for grins, a new cable. Do you see connect lights on the router and near the socket on the machine when the cable is plugged in?

    I just realized that you don't have DHCP enabled on the wired connection, that's the major issue now.

    Windows XP DHCP Setup Instructions

    1. Select Start > Settings > Network Connections.
    2. Double-click the Local Area Connection icon to open the Local Area Connection Status window.
    3. Click the Properties button to open the Local Area Connection Properties window.
    4. Click the Properties button to open the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties window.
    5. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.
    6. Select Obtain DNS server address automatically.
    7. Click OK to return to the Local Area Connection Properties window.
    8. Click OK to return to the Network Connections window.

    Reboot and post a new IPCONFIG /ALL

    Just read this thread. That's REALLY diabolical to assign a static APIPA! Good eyes, John.

    Yep, it threw me, I saw the 169.254, and "assumed" that it was DHCP assigning it! :)
