Need Help Badly

Alright, I'm at the end of my wits searching for a solution to this.

I'm fairly computer savvy, but no genius.

Issue:

Connection reads local only. It has communication activities with the modem. This started happening 2 days ago. The computer was shut down properly with no issues. It started it up only being able to connect locally with no changes made to the computer. There are 2 wireless computers that are also connecting to the network that aren't experiencing any issues.

Things I've Tried:


- Deleting and reinstalling drivers
- Restarting modem
- Restarting router
- Reinstalling network components
- Resetting Winsocks
- Resetting IP information
- Restoring computer (Back 3 days)
- Checked Ethernet cable (hooked into laptop and xbox with no issues with connectivity.)
- Reloading MB disc.

The next things on my list to try was giving up and seeing if a wireless card would solve my problem.

But

Everyone on here was so helpful with my last computer problem, I had to try here first.

Thanks!

You have a problem with getting a dhcp lease from your router. Give it a try with a static IP on your PC and see if that helps.

I appreciate the input. I tried using a static IP. This was the updated information. Still no internet.

Additionally, you might want to try a different ethernet cable if you have one.

Sorry, last response was incorrect. Had to refer to ping.

1. Destination host unreachable with 32 bytes of data. Packets : sent 4, recieved 4, 0% loss
2. Ping request could not find host google.com, please check the name and try again.
3. Same as 1.

Well, we're narrowing it down. :) 

It looks like the problem is your router. Your computer can't can't connect to it.
Since you tried a different cable, and your wireless machines are using the router successfully, I'd say you either have a bad ethernet port on the router, or the router's entire built-in switch is bad. First, try a different port on the router. If no good, it probably needs to be replaced. Before I did that, though, I would try to reset the router to factory defaults and see if that helps you out.

Oh, and a disclaimer: I'm not a Vista user, but it appears you are. If a firewall or something in Vista is causing this, I probably won't identify it. You could rule this out by trying another computer wired to the router.

What still has me contemplating it being a problem with my computer is, I can hook that same cable up to my xbox and my laptop and get a perfect connection.

And for the sake of it not interfering right now, windows firewall is disabled.

Bump, still having issues.

Think it might be the router.

Laptop will connect through the ethernet cord normally used for desktop, but can't access wireless anymore.

Desktop (went and baught a wireless card to test a theory) will connect to any wireless network except ours.
- Still can't connect through ethernet.

The router was reset to default settings, and reset up again.

Still open to ideas.
