You didn't set a static ip as I've outlined then.

Ok found my router config page.

The default gateway addy is way different, and listed under WAN. I don't have wireless...or does this mean wired? I'm so confused.

Uncheck the box for using router as DHCP server. Everything else there looks good there. Like I said though, look for something like this similar in your router. If still no good, try using a dns for the static ip from here - http://theos.in/windows-xp/free-fast...s-server-list/

I can't find anything like that within my router control panel unless my eyes are playing tricks on me. I also unticked what you said and its just like this:



I will try what you said regarding the DNS.

Cool. I'd also try a reboot since when you have set the ip as static.

I also notice you're set to only 10 mbps in the left screenshot. Check the driver through the device manager to set that to at least 100 or gigabit depending on your onboard capabilities. Auto negotiation should do well unless the router is set wrong too.

I did have two advanced tabs. One like the above screenshot then the other linked to the Nvidia control panel. Any one know how to get it back?

If the Op would have had his computer hooked up to the internet during the Win 7 installation all this stuff would have taken place automatically.

I was using WiFi during the installation and have used it since today. I then switched over to ethernet. So you’re telling me, if I reinstall Windows 7 this should be all working fine?


Update: I have changed it so its 100mbps FULL and even half via the Nvidia panel but then it tells me that the cable is unplugged. The router light for the 4th port then like comes on then goes off every so often. (green) but when on the auto option it flashes orange while the other computers are green.
