Check your cables.
Reset the router.
Check Device Manager to make sure that the drivers are installed for the network adapter.

Ok after checking the cables as usamsa sugested, could you tell us what model router so i can go to the netgear homepage and find out the valid IP?

edit for add: there is one more thing your can do. from search type cmd. in the command box type ping msn.com. and it will give you back a screen. could you upload that with the snipping tool. BTW when you click reply there is an icon shaped like a paperclip. thats the icon to attach a clip to the post

Hi Ken, friend,

I hate to contradict you, but please don't have him messing with PPPOE.
He will get in all kinds of trouble.
PPPOE is the internet protocol and I think his problem is his wireless settings.

No reason to suspect his internet connection, after installing a new OS.

Sorry mate.

What to do?
Peter,

can you please provide a screenshot of the command prompt after entering ipconfig/all

Thanks.

This is useless. I got told to make a new connection and remove my old one. That did not work and now my computer is stuck. Is it best to create a new connection and, if so, could you guide me through it?

cheers

First we have to know what connection we are talking about.

So to avoid us talking about different things, please post a screenshot of your command prompt after entering the IPCONFIG/ALL command.

That will tell me a lot.

Further you have to be very specific in what you mean.

Saying your computer is stuck isn't very informative.

Helping with only text as medium isn't ideal, so it is even more important to be precise and elaborate in your descriptions.

Ok, now first post the screenshot, then we'll go from there.

Please give us first your ipconfig. Write ipconfig / all > desktop\ipconfig.txt to command prompt. It creates a text file called ipconfig.txt to your desktop. Attach this file here.
