AVG Free dnload messed up IP protocol configuration...no internet
Okay so I tried to install the AVG Freesoftware basic package last night and now no matter what I try I cannot connect to the internet. Yes I unplugged everything, wireless router, modem, computer etc and restarted after uninstalling the software. No joy. I was on the phone to the Belkin guys... not really any help.. they did try though. No joy.. one guy told me to call a friend who was 'techy'... nice. The level 2 guy said to contact you guys. So here goes.. The error I get reads "The network adapter "Wireless Network Connection" is not correctly configured to use the IP protocol". Am guessing AVG messed up the mapping to the router, probably the firewall? But I uninstalled everything and I don't know my IP address... and I haven't got a scoobie as to how to find it without the internet... HELP!
Having experienced the same problem, and not having the luxury of reformatting the HD, the solution presented itself quite by chance. Having uninstalled both AVG 8.0 and Vista SP1 (which can also cause the problem), there was an entry for AVG Filter still in the network connection properties. Uninstalling that entry solved the connection issue. Re-installing both SP1 and AVG 8.0 did not cause the problem to reappear (nor did the AVG Filter entry come back). If you have uninstalled SP1, you may have to uninstall then re-install your wireless adapter from Device Manager (Search for Hardware Changes) - another minor snag experienced during the battle.

When your using Internet connection via LAN you need to configure the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties at the Network Connection Wizard. To configure the Network Connection just follow this steps:
1. Double click the My Computer from your desktop/screen.
2. At the left side of the My Computer menu click the My Network Places then click View Network Connections in the left side of that window also.
3. Double click the Local Area Connection and click Properties.
4. When the Local Area Connection Properties was appear select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) then click Properties.
5. The Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties are also apear, then click Use the following IP address and fill-up the following: IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Preferred DNS Server and Alternate DNS Server.
6. After all you fill-up click OK Button.
Note: Make sure that the IP Address you fill-up in your network connection are not the same with the other computer to avoid conflict. Just copy the configuration on the computer like: Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Preferred DNS Server and Alternate DNS Server. Only the IP Address are unique to the other computer. Example; 192.168.0.5 that is the IP Address of last computer are connected in the network. The IP Address you able to use is 192.168.0.6, only the last digit of the IP Address your going to change.
Hi! How are you?
okay, Internet Protocol (IP) is the primary network protocol used on the Internet, developed in the 1970s. On the Internet and many other networks, IP is often used together with the Transport Control Protocol (TCP) and referred to interchangeably as TCP/IP.
I don't see Vista listed in the SBG Manual, but they do list several windowS OS versions. Looking at Windows 2000 for an example, you basically need to go into the control panel and make sure TCP/IP is configured correctly.
If Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is in the list of components, TCP/IP is installed. You can skip to step 10.
If Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is not in the list, click Install. The Select Network Component Type window is
In both cases, the box next to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) needs to be selected.
If you need the steps in selecting the network component type let me know and I'll try to post those steps also.
you can change your ip adress, but that will not stop the criminals. most likely you get your ip dynamicly. The system will tell your computer what the ip is. best bet, do not mess with the ip, will save you the pain in the future.
my advice, get better security. Get a firewall, there are free ones on the internet. Don't trust the microsoft firewall, not that good.
If you have broadband, get a router. There are nice routers with some good software firewalls installed, but you don't need to spend the money for those. Any good basic router will provide a basic firewall protection.
Get a router, and install a firewall on your computer.
stay away from norton, I don't like there products, slow down your system too much.

If you computer got hacked, most likely you caused it. You could have a trojan on your computer. Make sure you get a virus scanner. I use AVG.
