Welcome to Seven Forums,

Is this a wireless or wired connection issue? Have you tried both?
If this is a wireless issue, remove all the wireless profiles stored in your computer, then re-connect to your own SSID(wireless network). Here's How.

not yet. What do you mean though? by the way the software for the internet is Cisco and the router itself is a linysys E 1000. I tried both and it's not working at all. i've restarted, unplugged, unwired, replugged everything over and over again but no progress at ALL. please help me

Post# 4 - Please follow my suggestions and read the 2 links that I have provided you. The ipconfig /all is important, please follow the tutorial. You will have to give us an update on how you are doing, we can't really guess. If you can't follow the instructions, please re-read it again.

damselinofageek - that is incorrect. Here's a different Tutorial on how to run the ipconfig /all, please read it well.

Have you also done the Power cycle?
