Question about Computers & Internet
The ethernet port works with my old router but when I got a new router it will not connect. My internet is through AT&T and they have said it was the ethernet port but I am not understand that when it will work with my old router but not any of the new routers. I have even taken the computer to someone for them to look at it and when they hook it up to the internet it will not connect they have Cable internet. Can anyone please help me with this??? I am completely lost and we cant figure out why it wont work with any new updated routers but it will work with my old one that is over 2 years old.
Make sure the NIC card is set to DHCP. ipconfig /all will tell you if DHCP is enabled.
Go to Start > Search (Run in XP) and type cmd ENTER. In the command prompt type ipconfig /release ENTER. Then type ipconfig /renew ENTER. This just refreshes your IP. Test it.
It is located in TCP/IP Properties.

SOURCE: Ethernet not working! Help!
im assuming its not dissabled, if not then go to control panel, network connections and right click on your network card and go to properties then driver and see if there is a code 9 meaning it's faulty or the device is working. if it is faulty then it's part of the motherboard anyway and you will have to buy a pcmcia network card and connect through that instead

This can be done pretty much any time. You want to end up with the modem connected to the router, and router to computer.
