OK, I used a static IP, but still doesn't work.


IP: 172.16.153.70
Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
Default Gateway: 172.16.153.2
Preferred DNS Server: 172.16.153.2

Is it possible that the LAN part of the PC is physically damaged?

I would suggest setting a static IP address instead.

ipv6

while your anonymity isn't as secure from a non-network intruder standpoint, you can try turning off ipv6. if you have a dynamic ip it can cause issues, try turning it off, rebooting, and turning it on, rebooting and see if that helps.

I might be confusing something here but in your example, isnt't the default gateway supposed to be 172.16.153.1 (same goes for the Preferred DNS server if your router acts as a proxy otherwise you should enter the real DNS-IPs here) ??

I'm not sure what you mean by getting a "live CD". I also tried turning off the IPv6 and rebooting and all that to no avail. I tried the static IP again with the changes suggested, also didn't work.

Could be a logic latch in your router. Try re-setting your router back to factory defaults and set it up from the beginning.

I wasted several days of my life with this problem, I don't think you'll solve it - looks like the microsoft solution DOESN'T work with home premium versions. Get a windows 7 compatible router/switcher which your computer will recognise.

OK, I reset-ed my modem and started over, still nothing. There seems to be a lot of Linux Live CD's. Could you point me to one that would work for me?
