    Problem description: I went to New Mexico last week and when I came back my wireless
    connection won't work with my modem anymore. When I got back here I got online one time and ever since then I couldn't get on anymore, it just kicks me off every program saying I'm connected but nothing actually loads or works. Last time this happened it was from an attack but after changing the ip it started working. I'm using McAfee and ZoneAlarm at the moment so it probably has something to do with them. The fix seems so simple but I'm clueless when it comes to wireless and have no idea what to do. I've tried resetting the modem with no luck either. Also when I connect with just regular cat5 it works fine, it's just at my house we use wireless and it doesn't seem to work with it.

    Attempted fixes: I've reset the modem and tried changing my ip address using ipconfig

    /release and /renew. I've also tried doing a rollback with no success.

    Recent changes: Zonealarm and McAfee automatically update themselves so I tried doing a

    rollback to a couple past dates with no luck.


    Operating system: Windows XP (Home).

    System specs: Gateway MX6436 Notebook.

    ipconfig /all

    TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE----

    ONE ---------------------------------
    ipconfig /all

    rightclick in the box
    select all
    control key + C key - to copy
    then reply here and
    control key + V to paste

    TWO -----------------------------------------------

    Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type:
