AVG Free dnload messed up IP protocol 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.

    thanks so much, even though its over 2 years later, I had this same issue on a friends Vista machine, and was able to fix it by uninstalling AVG (it was a trial that expired). A coworker also had the same error messages previously on her Vista machine after deleting a bunch of things, and I ended up reinstalling the O/S. Should have just looked for AVG or other filters.

I wanna talk about ip and sock

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.

Changin ip address

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.

zone alarm is good.

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.

here is a good website to help you learn about computer security. Just click the "links and download" section.
