G'day,
I have two computers. 1 an older model, no 2 a almost new computer. Both computers were able to connect to the internet. I have window 7 installed on both computers.
I decided to uninstall items on the older computer to give myself more room and uninstalled programs at I never use.
I have been using the newer computer very frequently. When I decided to use the older computer I could not connect to the internet. Before I think the wireless modem was connecting me to the internet.
I tried System Restore to the earliest time I could find. I still cannot connect to the internet on my old computer.
I am sending Screen shots. So that you might understand my problem.
I would appreciate any help please.
Cheers Perry

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.]

[Press ENTER after each command.]

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.

Could be a firewall problem. What firewall or security suite is, or ever was, on the system?

Probably a defective NIC, cable (except that you've checked for this) or router LAN port.

I do not understand about the Lan Port
I assumed that you are trying to connect the PC by ethernet to a router. So, replace "router LAN port" with whatever you are connecting the other end of the ethernet cable to.

From your last photo I'd say you have a DSL modem/router and are using LAN ports 2 and 3 to connect two devices (the two computers you mentioned in your initial post?).

G'day Terry,
Is this the Modem you are referring to?
I notice the DSL socket is different. I will need to drive to town to get a cable.
Do I have this correct. I connect the cable into the DSL socket and the back of the computer that is not connected to the Internet.

In my post # 10 I was referring to the second attachment in your post # 9.

I connect the cable into the DSL socket and the back of the computer that is not connected to the Internet.
No. The DSL port is for the phone line. Are you saying that you do not have an ethernet cable between the PC and a LAN port of the router? What devices do you have connected to the router (the modem/router shown in your second attachment to post # 9)?
