I'm very new to this forum but I am experiencing a problem that just wont go away!
I have an ASUS PX24 that I run as a media centre connected to my Sharp 42" TV.
It's running Windows 7 Home Premium
I have iiNET NakedDSL that runs through a Netgear DG834G wireless modem/router.
The computer is hardwired via a 3m LAN cable.
Until recently the whole setup had been running swimmingly. The computer, as I said, was hard wired and the wireless was used for phones/internet radios/laptops etc.
About 2 months ago something funny started happening. Almost every site returned a "400 malinformation or illegal request error." I couldn't connect to google, gmail, ebay, youtube. You name it, I couldn't connect to it. However, on the odd occasion it would work. But then it would start bringing up "cannot connect to host name, you forgot a separator ":" " type messages.
If it does work, it is extraordinarily slow to load anything. PINGs often time out of go missing, every page has bots of information missing that couldn't be loaded.
I have tried
1. Clearing cookies
2. Flushing DNS with .BAT file from this website
3. Using Google's 220.127.116.11 to resolve domain names for IPv4
4. Turning off ITSAP and wan mini devices
5. Reinstalling my Realtek PCIe ethernet drivers
6. Changing LAN ports
But nothing seems to work.
HOWEVER, the computer works flawlessly over Wifi (albeit slower)
This is my big issue, why does LAN not work but Wifi does?
I am so confused and frustrated
Thanks in advance for any help.
