    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 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.
    Cheers Perry

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

    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)?
