10. Click on "Use the following IP address" under the "General" tab
11. Create an IP address (It doesn't matter what it is. I just type 1 and 2 until i fill the area up).
12. Press "Tab" and it should automatically fill in the "Subnet Mask" section with default numbers.
13. Hit the "ok" button here

Can't connect to the internet using Vista OS on Compaq laptop. Using a WNDR3400-100NAS Netgear router. It finds the router and it labels it as an unidentified network and it will not complete the connection to the internet.

I am assuming you HAVE connected before.

Here is how to fix that corrupted DNS cache in vista.

1. Click the Microsoft Vista Start logo in the bottom left corner of the screen
2. Click All Programs
3. Click Accessories
4. RIGHT-click on Command Prompt
5. Select Run As Administrator
6. In the command window type the following and then hit enter: ipconfig /flushdns
7. You will see the following confirmation:

Windows IP Configuration
Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.

After that in the same command window type

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

That should clear up the issue. Odds are you were sharing an IP address with someone else on the network.
