Wndows 7 wired not connecting to router

#1
I just installed a fresh copy of win7 pro on a desktop PC.

I'm trying to assign a static IP address over IPV4 (have disabled IPV6)
I have gone over settings numerous times and still cant get a ping to my Linksys 3200 router. (destination host unreachable)

I'm pulling my hair out here trying to figure out whats going on.

IP address 192.168.1.100
subnet mask 255.255.255.0

default gateway 192.168.1.1

my dns servers are provided from my isp, both preferred and alternate.

my ip address range on the router are from 192.168.1.100/125

You show DHCP as being turned off. You have the router set to give a DHCP address of .100, but you already show a .100 for your address. Maybe you should try turning on DHCP or using a static IP address out of the DHCP available range.

You dns server address is showing as the external IP address of the actual dns server. It is better to set the dns server address to the IP address of the router gateway (192.168.1.1) - that way all dns requests will be addressed to the router which will in turn pass it on to whatever is the real external dns server address which your router will have obtained from the ISP by DHCP.

Just to exclude the possibility of IP address conflicts (the error you are getting can occur when an ARP request to resolve the layer 3 IP address to a layer 2 mac address fails) try turning DHCP on and setting all address settings to automatic.
