    Hello, my computer is custom made and it has been running just fine until recently. Usually when turn on my computer and login, my computer is connect to the internet. However recently I have not been able to connect with the local area connection and i'm currently on wireless connection. When i'm not using wireless my internet doesn't connect and I can't check my router by typing 192.168.1.1. I have a Linksys WRT54G and i'm using Vista SP2. I don't like using wireless at all and I want my connection to go back to normal. Thanks!

    HI there, you say you can't access your router by using 193.168.1, what happens when you try to access this?

    Your ipconfig does show a working wireless connection but a lan connection that is not being assigned a valid ipaddress from the router.
    So,quite a few things could cause that.
    Let's check some things.
    From a Johnwill postConfigure DHCP for Windows Vista.
    1. Click on the Start menu, and select Control Panel.
    2. Click on Network and Internet. (Skip this step if you do not see this Control Panel item.)
    3. Click on Network and Sharing Center.
    4. Click on Manage network connections.
    5. Right click on Local Area Connection and choose Properties. If Windows say it needs your permission to continue, click Continue.
    6. Select Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) and click Properties.
    7. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.
    8. Select Obtain DNS server address automatically.
    9. Click OK to close the TCP/IP Properties window.
    10. Click OK to close the Local Area Connection Properties window.
    11. Click Close to close the Network Connections window.
    12. Click Close to close the Control Panel window.
    13. Restart your computer.

    Let's make sure that all,components are cabled correctly and are started in the correct order
    Tips on setting up broadband connection, courtesy of Johnwill

    You don't need any setup disk to configure a broadband router.


    . The following procedure should get you a connection with any broadband modem that is configured to use DHCP for the router connection, such as cable modems, and many DSL modems. If you require PPPoE configuration for the DSL modem, that will have to be configured to match the ISP requirements.
    • Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
    • Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
    • Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
    • Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
    • Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
    • Boot the computer.

    When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

    NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous command output!

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    PING <computer_IP_address>

    PING <default_gateway_address>

    PING <dns_servers>

    PING 206.190.60.37

    PING yahoo.com

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    Check for stack corruption :
    Stack repair for XP and Vista.
    Courtesy of Johnwill of the Networking forum.

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows Vista.

    Start, All Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

    Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.

    There are some other things we can do,but let's get the basics out of the way.

    Probably a defective router ethernet port, defective cable or defective NIC. Use other cable or computer or router to determine which.

    It could also be a corrupted ethernet driver. Use Device Manager to uninstall it; reboot and let Windows discover the adapter and reinstall the driver.

    It could also be that the adapter is no longer capable of auto-syncing a speed with that particular router. In Device Manager right click on the ethernet - Properties - Advanced tab - for the "Speed & Duplex" property try different settings beginning with 100 Mbps full duplex and 10 Mbps full duplex.

    What do you mean by "updated my router frame"?

    What firewalls do you have on the machine?

    Have you done the driver reinstall and speed/duplex settings?

    Have you isolated to router, cable or NIC yet?

    Yup I did everything you told me.
    My cable is fine, I reinstalled my driver and changed my speed/duplex settings to everything but nothing worked :(
    I had AVG AV and I removed it from my computer and also took down my firewalls from windows and still nothing.
