OK, I did as you mentioned above and all reset expect IPv6 which said there was nothing to reset. I restarted the computer and nothing has changed. They will not allow me to start them as it is saying the same thing via the pic above as an ERROR message. Identifying is still the passage given when i checked the connection.

Hmmm....I don't recall getting a response from you regarding this question. It has been overlooked. Do you have Norton, McAfee, Webroot, Zone Alarm, etc....?
How about the Security or Firewall Software installed?

Also, let's hope that 'others' will be able to chime in.

As for the security or firewall, it only has Windows firewall. Which needed updated settings being it is off and want let me update or change anything. I will post screenshot once it is done with the stage process.

Attached is the screenshot of the firewall error i keep getting over & over. I tried firewall advanced to see if it would work and it didn't either. There is no Norton, McAfee, Zone Alarm or anything on here but Avast! and the SUPERAntiVirus. The disk check went all the way thru all 5 stages and reloaded. I need to do the next part of getting a static IP address. I will keep you posted.

I fixed it....... The Static IP address for Windows 7 help very much. The IP address had to be hand put in. READING IT VERY CAREFULLY was the key. ******My questions is, with each shut down and restart, will the ip address info stay in the input fields???? Also, I still am not able to get firewall working still. I will post in another thread if needed. Let me know. Thanks

That is so great to hear bizzeb that Static IP got you all connected to the Internet. Yes, reading the instructions well does pay off. The Static IP should stay intact.
My questions is, with each shut down and restart, will the ip address info stay in the input fields????

I think it might be good for you to create a new Thread. I'll assist you if you want.
Also, I still am not able to get firewall working still. I will post in another thread if needed. Let me know. Thanks

Can you please mark this Thread Solved from the Thread Tools? Thanks.

and...You're quite Welcome. You did very well on following the suggestions.
