Windows 7: Pc not connecting to internet

Pc not connecting to internet

Hello all,

i have a problem with my internet connection. When i turn on my pc, it gets an ip-adress from my modem, but the connection to the internet does not work. Turning the network connection off and on again (see attachment) solves the problem, but only until the next time i turn my pc on.

The output from the command ipconfig is:

So can anyone tell me how to fix this? Many thanks!

Hello, welcome to SF!

I am no good at interpreting logs and the like, especially logs in another language.

However, I have an idea, that may or may not work: Go into Device Manager and make sure your network adapter drivers are up-to-date. Right-click on it and select Update Driver.

I hope this works,

you do not need IPv6 at present disabling IPv6 in Vista & Windows 7 will help to speed up the
