If you can post a screen shot of the ipconfig/all from this machine it would be most helpful.

You got 2 network cards in the same machine set on the same range and getting 2x ip's from the same DHCP server. Try disabling one of the connections and trying it again with just one network adapter enabled and vice versa. Restarting the machine might be a good idea after disabling, before trying to ping a real world IP like google.

You can obviously ping the LAN side as you have been assigned a dhcp address which would suggest the NIC is functioning correctly thus far. Can you ping the Internet side of the router? (not 192.168.1.254)

So here is the screen shot of the lan ipconfig /all only when the usb wireless adapter is not plugged in and computer restarted. I dont know what you mean by pinging the internet side of the router. Also if it helps i have att uverse so its one of there gateways for internet and tv.

According to the ipconfig you should be online.

Most likely which ever A/V software you have installed is somehow blocking the connection.

I think the 2 screenshots in post 12 were taken when the USB wireless adapter was active.

The screenshot in post 14 is saying there is no network card installed as no real interface has been detected. I would be using the original network driver from the motherboard cd and make sure it's turned on in the BIOS.
If the OS is 64bit, are you installing a 64bit network card driver?
If reinstalling windows didn't fix it and you are using the correct driver, Im leaning towards faulty adapter.


What chev65 said is also possible, even if it was previously working normally some of the Internet Security programs can without warning add your computer to the wrong 'zone' or add restrictions to make your connection not work. I am leaning away from this solution though as that pic in post 14 shows no interface/network. I've never seen Internet Security disable/hide an adapter though.

Thanks guys for the input and yes it should be the x64 driver as that is what the title of it has in it versus the x86. Also very strange but again I randomly did a ip config /all with the wireless adapter disconnected after it was connected and this is what I got along with no internet access. (see pic) Also do Ethernet adapter go bad normally? And it is built into the mobo so would it be a good idea to get a new NIC?

Also on a somewhat related note of the internet that you guys might be able to answer quickly is that when i test my speed through like speedtest.net I get around 2Mbps but on my downloads I never get this and get lucky if the mythical 400Kbps shows up. Is it possible that it is the NIC? also is it a NIC if it is on-board Ethernet?

According to your ipconfig you are in fact online, therefore something is blocking the connection or the network stack is corrupted.

You can try starting up in safe mode with networking to determine if an installed program is causing the problem or not. Safe Mode

You should only be trying to use one connection at a time as Windows can only use one connection at a time to go online.

Do you have McAfee installed on this system? If not which A/V software do you have installed?

In case the network stack or winsock is corrupted you should save the file below, unzip and run the file, your machine will reboot automatically.

Thank you for the help and obvious work you put in with the bat/exe you made. Again both attempts with the safe mode and your bat resulted in the same issue. Also i would only use one connection but the lan is the problem so i connect the wireless to get internet. and i as far as a/v i use avira free antivirus.
again cheers
