    I usually use a wireless router to connect to the Internet with my laptop, but I need to use a DSL connection (not wireless) at another location and have been having problems. When I plug the cable in, Network Connections says I'm connected, but I am unable to send or receive e-mail and cannot view Web pages. When I do Run, Command, Ipconfig/all, here is what I get:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner>ipconfig/all

    Windows IP Configuration

    Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : C6E9961739FB407
    Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
    Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Hybrid
    IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : Yes
    WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No

    Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:

    Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
    Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network
    Connection
    Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-13-CE-92-BC-A3

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Marvell Yukon 88E8053 PCI-E Gigabit
    Ethernet Controller
    Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-01-4A-9D-85-8E
    Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
    Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
    Autoconfiguration IP Address. . . : 169.254.90.201
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :


    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    so you're not in the location you usually connect at?

    You might need to install the software the ISP you're going to use the internet from for the DSL to work as a wired connection.

    You're not finding a Dhcp server. If you are connecting to a modem you need to unplug the modem, connect your computer, leave the modem unplugged for 15 seconds, plug in the modem, boot your computer. And you may need PPPoE or user account and password or similar depending on the DSL provider.

    If you are connecting to a router (or modem/router combo) maybe the Dhcp server is disabled, maybe the router LAN port is bad or maybe the cable is bad.

    Who manages this network you're trying to connect to?
