No internet connection

I am trying to reinstall a wireless router. I have a Mac running os10 and dual boots with XP. The computer shows a network connection (wired ethernet)but will not connect. I have successfully connected using my netbook (with the same wired ethernet)and am writing this using it. I have had the Mac connected previously and the IP adresses etc are showing up.

Any help would be appreciated.

Could be the bad LAN card connection to the cable, try swap another LAN cable and check the Mac's network card for the bent connection pins.

Hope this helps!

Is the Mac getting its *CORRECT* IP address, i.e. *NOT* a 169.254.x.x APIPA address?

>>> I am trying to reinstall a wireless router.

A router isn't *installed* in a computer, either as hardware or as software, it is a network device to which computers connect using TCP/IP protocol. What are you trying to "reinstall"?

I am trying to reinstall the software for a Netgear wireless router. In the wired state the computer (running XP or OS10) will not connect to the internet during the installation process.
