    I have downloaded Windows 7 but cannot access the internet. I use a Netgear DG834G v2 wireless router and my ISP is AOL. I have the computer with windows 7 on wired to the router but will not get to the internet. I get a message of "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. Can anyone help... all the wireless laptops in my home both Vista and XP can all get in the net ok.........any ideas

    sounds like its probably not getting an IP address from the netgears DHCP service.

    Easy way to fix is to set a static IP address. Go to your XP machine, click START, type RUN and hit enter. In the command promot type IPCONFIG /ALL

    write down the numbers.

    Go to the W7 box and go into the Network Sharing Center. Click the hyperlink for Local Area Connection.Click PROPERTIES, then highlight Internet Protocol TCP IP v4 in the list and hit PROPERTIES again.

    Select USE THE FOLLOWIGN IP ADDRESS and enter the info you got from your XP box. Add 10 to the last number in the first box, so if it was 192.168.0.3 make it 192.168.0.13 on the W7 box. Set all the other numbers the same including the DNS server IP's.

    If that doesnt fix it then its a cable or driver problem....

    Let me know how you get on

    Click the start button and type CMD and hit enter. In the command box type;

    ipconfig /all

    and hit return - what is displayed?

    ah cool, thats easier now :)

    IPv4 Address . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.11<Preferred>
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : NEED SOMETHING IN HERE
    DHCPv6 IAID . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : 318774464
    DHCPv6 Client DVID . . . . . . . . . . . : 00-01-00-01-10-AF-29-38-00-1C-C0-7D-CD-23
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.11 THIS NEEDS TO BE THE ROUTER NOT THE SAME AS THE IP OF THE MACHINE


    Your IP is OK, BUT you will need a default gateway, as this is the IP address which any traffic not found gets pushed through. This needs to be the IP address of your Router so that when you search for a website etc and it's not found on your local network, it pushes the traffic out the gateway and onto the internet. I expect you will need this set as 192.168.0.1

    Also you'll need to set your DNS server to be the Router too. At the moment it's set as your computer which aint going to work.

    So, open you LAN connection again like we did before and type i the following;

    IP address 192.168.0.45
    subnet 255.255.255.0
    default gateway 192..168.0.1

    DNS primary 192.168.0.1
    DNS Secondry 208.67.222.222

    Let me know. PS the second DNS address is a service called Open DNS and it's a fast DNS server for free public use :)

    Still no joy
    default gateway .....192.168.0.1

    DNS servers ...192.168.0.1
    208.67.222.222
    every thing else reads the same..........but looking at the network and sharing center there is a internet connection. One hing I did not mention is that all the time ( now and before) the router is showing as a park bench icon as a public network not as my own locked one if this helps

    sorry to be a pain but just noticed that local area connection status
    IPv4 showing Internet
    IPv6 = No Internet access
    I'm not too clever at this side of things

    That's normal as most routers don't support IPv6, so I wouldn't worry about that. Could you go on to your XP setup and do the ipconfig /all command and give us the results for that? We should then be able to tell you exactly what to put in the Windows 7 configuration. Very odd that DHCP doesn't work though? :confused:

    right :(

    go to the XP machine and surf to the website 192.168.0.1 - does it ask for a username and password? ie, is that IP definitely the IP address of your router?
