Is this normal? My internet works just fine, wirelessly and wired. Can anyone help me figure out my ip address and also why "Media Disconnected" is painted all over the place?

Do you have any kind of software installed for the Wireless card to work?

Well my wireless works just fine. It's just that I can't determine my ip address and i thought it was weird that it says media disconn everywhere... I wanted to check my settings but since i cant see my ip add its impossible.

Your pc is pulling a Public IP, not an internal Ip. this could be causing part of your issues.

Sorry I am away from the forums on the weekends. Um, check to make sure your cables didnt get swapped around somehow.

Swapped around? No, they aren't... They are all where they need to be. Guess I will never figure this out.
