    I have a problem much like chrisg's I have a Webstar (Scientific-Atlantic) Modem, Netgear RangeMax 240 wireless router and Netgear USB on the computer that is running wireless. I cannot conect to the router (192.168.1.1) to change or set up on the wired computer. The wirless works fine. I have trouble connecting to internet and must retry many times until it may or may not work. I thought maybe the 240 was sucking all my juice, so I turned it down to half, but I still cannot load my router page - it cuts out. I did what you asked of the last guy:

    Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

    I've created a new thread for your issue here.

    Thanks for your cooperation.

    The ipconfig /all log that I posted is from the wired computer. That is the computer I am having troubles with. Should it be showing an adapter? If so, why do you think it isn't there? The wireless is using a USB adapter. Should I post the wireless computer's ipconfig too, even though it works fine?
    Do I need to turn off something from the modem to allow the router to handle the port addressing? Maybe they are both fighting for it or something... maybe my modem isn't good enough for the router and adapter...

    No, actually I just didn't understand what you were saying initially.

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

    For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.

    Did everything work before? Make sure your setup is correct. It is easy to mix up cables when troubleshooting. Make sure the network cable from the Modem goes into the WAN port of the router. You computer's network cable should go in a LAN port.

    ** edit **
    Sorry I spoke too soon. Since I see DHCP is working, I think your setup maybe ok.

    Ok, maybe I have found something... under my hardware-->network adapters, I have "nForce networking controller" the computer is new and the old one didn't have its own cable jack, so I bought a Netgear FA311 Fast Ethernet PCI card, when I got this computer I saw it had a jack for cable modem, so I gathered I didn't need the PCI card adapter. BIG Q: is "nForce networking controller" for cable connection? If it isn't, what is the jack on the back of my computer for? Am I missing a driver for that jack? Should I put in my Netgear FA311 pci card again?

    Try pulling up router page from the wireless. This may or may not work and depends on your router setting that allows you to access the administration over wireless.. If it works, then probably your router is ok.

    Try changing the cable on the wired computer. Also, there could be something going on with your network card. Try updating the drivers or swapping the card out.

    Does the nForce NIC have drivers loaded? If it's under Network Controllers with no errors, that would be a yes.

    Are you going to post the IPCONFIG /ALL for the machine we're trying to fix?

    So far the wired is doing well - now it looks like the wireless is cutting out and the only way to get back online is to re-boot the computer. I will be out most of the day today. When I come home, I will check to see if anyone has ideas on new problem.
    If the porblem continues, do I make a new thread for new problem?
