I can't connect to the internet. When I double click Local Area Network under Network connections it says it has both sent and received packets. It is set to automatically acquire an ip address. The computer is connected to a router. I can ping 192.168.1.1 but when I try to reach my router's settings it says page can't be loaded. I tried to hook the computer up directly to the modem and connect that way. It said it was connected and it was sending packets but I still couldn't do anything. I've turned off the windows firewall. The computer is Windows XP SP1. Any ideas?

More info:

ip config /all
netstat -n
ping&tracert 192.168.1.1

Is it a DSL modem?

If so, on the bottom of the modem should be a IP, is it 192.168.1.1?

if so, disconnect the router from the modem, log into your router (you should be able to use 192.168.1.1 now), change the LAN IP to 192.168.0.1, and save settings.

reconnect the router to the modem. reboot the modem and router. you should have a connection now.

Disregard what I previously said. I used a diagnostic tool and now it's working! Thanks man.
