Problem with my connection - please help!

  Mekanos 17:31 27 Apr 2008


My computer very suddenly doesnt detect my internet connection anymore. It worked a few hours ago and now it wont even detect the connection and i have no idea why.

I run vista home and my internet connection is BeBox. I tried unplugging and re-plugging the wires in but nothing works.

I dont think there is anything wrong with the BeBox as the ethernet light is on and my flatmate's(who is on wireless)internet works fine.

Please help as i urgently need my connection back!

Thanks in advance!

Type cmd into the search box and press return.


IPConfig /all

press return

what output do you get? Scroll to the top of the output, ignore all the IPv6 / tunnelling stuff. You're interested in the IPv4 info - IP address, subnet mask, gateway etc.

I get the following (ignoring all tunnelling stuff):

Host Name: Rumesh-PC
Primary Dns Suffix: (nothing here)
Node Type: Hybrid
IP Routing Enabled: No
WINS Proxy Enabled: No

The only other output is Tunnel adapter Local Area Connection* 6 and Tunnel adapter Local Area Connection* 7.

Let me know if you need anything else.

No IPv4 info - IP address, subnet mask, gateway etc? No internet connection without IPv4....

Best to close one of these threads and stick to a single one
