computer/router problem pls help


Recommended Posts

Ok, I'll start from the begining. I just switched my ISP from Verizon DSL to ClearWire. I have 2 computers, both wireless. Alright, Now let me get to the problem. I went in to Network Connections and it says that I'm connected, but when I tried to access the internet I keep getting "The page cannot be displayed", so I doubled checked to make sure that I'm connencted and I am. The signal strength is very good. I contacted the tech people for clearwire, and spent 2 and a half hours on the phone trying to firgure out what was wrong. We reset the modem and the router. I even disconnected my wireless adapter. Anyways, he had me go into run>ipconfig /all and I get this

The tech guy wasn't much help, all he could tell me was that my computer wasn't recognizing the router. Now I don't think that it's the router causing the problem because I can connect to the internet with no problems on the other computer. If anyone can help me, please do! Thanks.

what type of router do you have?  DSL requires PPPoE to log you on to a dsl system.. my guess is that you need to turn that off and you should be fine.. I would just hold the Reset button on the router... That will reset the entire router  now you just need to set up the wifi security..

BTW welcome to the forum!

I have the same problem with my laptop. My friends can bring theirs to my house and connect, no problem, but I go to their house and avg, etc will update, but I can't surf the web. Haven't figured it out in 6 months. More I read about networking, the less I understand. Shouldn't someone x out his physical address?
