and im assuming you're using the disc
take that thing out and click on start, run, type cmd and click ok
black window pops open
type ipconfig and see what your gateway is
it should be 192.168.1.1
if default gateway is blank
type ipconfig /release (there is a space between ipconfig and the / mark)
ipconfig /renew (there is a space between ipconfig and the / mark agian)
type ipconfig again, if still no gateway
click start, control panel, net work connections, right click your local area connection and click properties.
In the window where its talking about client for microsoft networks, double click the bottom line that says internet protocol TCP/IP
in the window that pops open, make sure you have the box marked by 'Obtain an IP address Automatically',
and press ok and ok again.
if you get a
then your computer sees the router
if you get back a message that host is unreachable, you can check to see that your nic is ok by typing
netsh diag gui
and clicking ok
a help and support window opens eventually
click 'scan your system'
when its done, look down at the bottom at modems and network adaptors
at the right, if its blank or fail, is bad
