    Hello,

    Turn the router / modem off then back on.

    Then

    From the Start menu, select Control Panel, or Settings and then Control Panel.Double-click Network and Sharing Center.

    From the list of tasks on the left, click Change adapter settings (in Windows 7), or Manage network connections (in Vista).

    For a wired network connection, right-click Local Area Connection, and then select Properties.

    For a wireless network connection, right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then select Properties.

    From the Networking tab, click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), make sure it is checked, and then click Properties.

    Click Obtain an IP Address Automatically, and then click OK.


    No luck in above try below,

    Click > Start > click > Control Panel, in the control Panel interface click Device Manger This will open device manger for you.

    Once in device Manger Look for Network Adapter to the left of network adapters click on the arrow to expand the list of adapters, in the list look for Name of adapter Right click on it and choose Uninstall. Now reboot the computer, windows will reinstall the adapter for you.



    Thanks
    Joe

    I'm looking into this so hang on for a bit.

    In the mean time can you run minitoolbox, download to a flashdrive on a good computer, then insert the flash drive into the bad computer and run it, post the log.

    Please download MiniToolBox http://download.bleepingcomputer.com...iniToolBox.exe and run it.

    Checkmark following boxes:

    • Flush DNS
    • Report IE Proxy Settings
    • Reset IE Proxy Settings
    • Report FF Proxy Settings
    • Reset FF Proxy Settings
    • content of Hosts
    • List IP configuration
    • List Winsock Entries
    • List last 10 Event Viewer log
    • List Installed Programs
    • List Users, Partitions and Memory size
    • List Restore Points


    Click Go and post the result.

    Also I need to know how you're are connecting, wireless, direct, and what are you using for router / modem make an model of units. Are other devices connecting ok ?
