copy and paste that into your address bar. Your network card driver is there there is 4 to choose from but read the names and they will tell you which ones you can eliminate. If you can you shound peak at your network card to tell what kind it is. I mean just take the sides off and look at the network card and see if you can find a name God Bless Greg

Your internet provider should have provided you with a modem (dsl modem) that will have a ethernet port which can be connected to a computer directly or a router to make internet available to multiple computers. Router usually comes with five ports one of them is WAN port (Wide Area Network) and other four are LAN ports (Local Area Network) The dsl modem should be connected to WAN port of your router and the LAN ports are use to connect to any computer with an ethernet cable. If the router has wireless capability you can use your laptop or smartphone to access internet wirelessly!
directly connect the dsl modem to your pc and then restart your system. once your up and running the pc should automatically create a connection with the modem device. once you have established an internet connewction this way, shut down the system and reboot. after complete bootup, unplug the power supply cords to both the modem and the router. now plug im the modem, wait 1 minute and plug in the router. after about a minute you should now be able to connect to the internet both by your pc and wireless connections.
Are you connected to a router? If so, then it is your router that is failing since it could not sustain a network connection with your PC.
Possible causes include defective or failing DSL modem. Lastly, your ISP.
But based on your description, you seemed to be disconnected from network and needs "repair" of the network IP to renew in order to connect to the internet. If that is the case, please check your router first.
First of all check the DSL cable must be in WAN port of the linksys router. if it is done then do the following.
Actually DSL modem and Linksys router are conflicting with their IP class. Means DSL and Linksys routers are using the same IP class of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1.
You must change one's IP class because both are routers and if they having same class they cant communicate. Unplug the WAN cable of the linksys. open browser and put ip 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 any one which works for u in the address bar. Username and password hopefully be admin admin or just admin and password blank field. when you access the linksys router configuration page then come to LAN configuration. If there IP is 192.168.1.1 then change it to 192.168.0.1 and if it is 192.168.0.1 then change it to 192.168.1.1 Save configuration and reboot your laptop and plug dsl cable to linksys WAN port. Hope now this will work.
Possibly if you gave more information .....does it have a network card installed, is the network card "enabled" in the hardware settings, does the network card have correct drivers ? ( no yellow question mark beside it ) Do you have an internet provider and account ? Is your internet high speed or dialup, if it is dialup, do you have a modem installed - with correct drivers ? Is it working - do a modem query to see if it responds ? If using a network card and cable or DSL internet, is the cable connected from the PC to the cable or dsl modem ? Is the cable or dsl modem plugged in and the power and wan light on ? With the little bit of information you have given, it is not really possible to give an exact answer to what the problem is.
Why connect the XBOX to the computer? Can you connect it to another port on the DSL router or do you only have one port for internet connection? If so get a DSL router that will allow you to connect multiple network devices. The router will have to be configured like the current PC so that it can connect to teh internet. Then you can connect your XBOX to one of the router ports and teh PC to another port. Your PC ethernet internet connect will need to be changed so that it uses DHCP.
a second option:
You PC probably only has one ethernet port that you are using to connect to the DSL. You will need to get a second ethernet card for the PC to connect the XBOX. Not worth the trouble or $$$.
This should be connected as so. From wall outlet to DSL modem, from DSL modem to D-Link router, From D-Link router to Laptop via wireless or wired connection. You will still need the DSL modem installed but the wire coming from the DSL modem will go to uplink port on the router instead of into the laptop.
The wan port is what you hook your modem to. Wan stands for Wide Area Network, which in your case is the internet. Your house with your 2 pc's and networking equipment would be considered a Lan, local area network.
The 4 ports on the router are switch ports, when you hook the modem up to the switch instead of the wan port the modem will only allow traffic from one physical, (MAC) address to pass through, this is why only one of your pc's can access the internet. The wan port on the router has its own MAC address, so the modem will associate with the wan port and trust all traffic that comes from that port.
Finally, after you have connected the modem to the wan port, pull the power cord on the modem then plug it back in to reset it, this will force the modem to orient with the wan port.
