    Re: IP Address Issue

    I'm confused. Are you able to communicate with the router or not? Can you log into it with that PC?

    Yeah but I seek clarification. It doesn't make sense that he can access the router without an IP.

    Re: IP Address Issue

    Ok, sorry for the delay.

    I am connected through my wireless connection. All 3 computers in my house are also connected this way. When connected through LAN wire, I get nothing. I can access my router through my troubled desktop via wireless.

    Re: IP Address Issue

    OK so it's only the wired connection causing trouble. That suggests that Windows networking seems to be OK and also that Winsockfix and LSPFix seemed to have no effect.

    Do any of the other PC's connect to the router or modem via wired connection?

    Do you have a LAN card that you can put into your PC and try? Maybe that ethernet adaptor is faulty. Pretty common.

    Indeed, the wireless uses all other NICs than the wired, so this is about a dead NIC or still an IP issue on the Wired side of things ...

    One of your computers must be able to connect to the router over wired connection or the router's LAN side is defective ...

    Have you checked the router 'Wired' configuration (over the wireless connection) ?
    What are its settings ?
    DHCP Yes or No ?
    IP-range for that item if Yes ?
    etc. ...

    Re: IP Address Issue

    I will try connecting another computer with a cable later tonight.

    My settings are:
    DHCP yes
    IP Range is .100 to .149
    IP Address shows the router address
    sub mask shows 255.255.255.0
    and it shows the mac address

    What 's the complete router address ?

    The computers you attach the the switch/LAN side must also be in DHCP mode.
    When the computer asks for an IP address, the router should give an IP address and a lease to that computer and they should be able to communicate from that moment onwards.
    You need to leave the Gateway address field empty (Windows NIC config) or enter the correct router fixed IP like 192.168.1.1 or another internal IP address / otherwise, connecting to the router will still not be possible.

    DNS IP addresses are not important at this stage / DNS server IP's are only needed to access the Internet (WAN) side of things ...

    That 's a very common (default) router IP address.

    So, now you just need a working PC, a working NIC in it, a 100% correctly wired Ethernet cable (preferably straight although many a router works with both models) and a correctly configured router to have normal communication between the 2 and (if the router is 100% OK) also communication with the WAN (ISP and Internet) ...
    [ since you were/are able to communicate with Internet in the Wireless fashion ]

    In the above case, you should have perfect communications on LAN and WAN !

    Re: IP Address Issue

    Ok, just plugged a laptop into the router via ethernet cable. Restart and works like a charm. Do you want me to go directly to the modem also? Or no need?

    No need now !
    Glad it works now

    Did you now check the IP address that the wired NIC of the laptop got ?

    ( ipconfig /all )

    Re: IP Address Issue

    Yes, have a new IP for the wired connection. So everything works, except my desktop.

    What's next?

    Repeat the previous !?

    If the desktop has a wired NIC, just connect that to the router (maybe with the cable you used to connect the laptop with)

    To make sure, run a ping to 127.0.0.1 (IP with which to test any NIC) / if that comes out OK, the 'desktop' should also be able to connect to the router (LAN side).
    Make sure its NIC is configured the same way as the laptop's NIC was ...

    Re: IP Address Issue

    Well, this is the initial problem. I can't connect! Desktop, ethernet cable to router, does not work. It says the network did not assign a network addess to the computer.
