problem with internet connection

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hey guys,

sorry but this is going to be a long post.

Basically, I can't get internet through the ethernet port on my Intel DX58SO motherboard.

Here's all the info I got so far:


ipconfig /release used to do whatever it does, since I reset the TCP/IP stack and the WINSOCK entries manually it gives me the error message
"An error occurred while releasing interface Local Area Connection: An address has not yet been associated with the network endpoint."

ipconfig /renew gives me this error message (and has been giving me this error message before /release started messing up):
An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection: unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out


From what I found out about this error, it is often resolved by resetting the TCP/IP and WINSOCK, which I did, and it seemed to have made the problem worse...

I updated the BIOS on the motherboard, I have the most recent drivers for everything that I can think of. The machine is running Windows 7. The modem is a ubee, I know the cable is fine because it works fine with the Mac I'm posting from right now.


I'm really at a loss here, and it's frustrating. Thank you guys so much for helping me.

Sounds like you need to log into your router and create a DHCP pool to gain an IP from.

I'm not connected to a router, I'm coming straight out of the modem.

Yeah? It should be supplying you with an IP address. Reset it..

Yeah, what ^he said.

Try unplugging (powering down) the modem for a minute.

I power cycled both the modem and computer a good many times.

Call your ISP and tell them the router they supplied is not issuing you an IP address...
