    I have a problem with internet connectivity.
    Windows XP Professional SP3
    Linksys E200 Wireless router
    Linksys Wireless-G PCI adapter
    I am running on a dell computer (cannot give specs right now, i'm in school)
    Not only does my computer not connect to my router, (other devices, such as iPad, iPod do,) i also cannot run the "ipconfig" function in the Command Prompt. Doings so outputs a message that says:
    THere is a history to what i believe caused the problem, here is the story:
    Discovered google redirect virus, which directed me to famoussearchsystem.com and coolsearchsystem.com
    Ran Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware scan. Log:
    rebooted computer as directed, upon startup, got Blue screen with code "IQRL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"
    began windows in safe mode with command prompt, started explorer.exe, ran another malwarebytes scan. Log:
    Restarted windows
    windows logged on succesfully
    Internet worked, but google redirect virus still there.
    Attempted system restore, didn't work
    Ran another malwarebytes scan. Log:
    Restarted Computer, everything seemed fine
    Could not connect to internet. I was not getting ANY ip information.
    I used the IP info on my ipod/ipad to input the same thing manually into the TCP/IP section of the properties for my adapter, did not work.
    Tried ipconfig, and this is where i believe the problem is.
    SOrry for long post, thank you for reading.
