Not receiving packets even though my LAN shows connected

by ashishtuli / November 28, 2010 11:28 AM PST

Hi all,

I have searched and found my such posts and have spent better part of my last two days trying to figure out a solution but I am nowhere near to getting a fix.

Couple of days back, I was surfing on my laptop and suddenly the internet stopped working. My roommate's line was working fine so I thought maybe its a problem with my line and I tried to hook my laptop up at his line and yet it wouldn't work. The LAN shows connected and repairs fine, however I don't see any packets being received. Wifi access works fine though.

I have taken this dump of ipconfig /all when I was connected to my LAN. Request anyone to pls help me fix this. Thanks!

That's might slim details to work with.

But let's work without make, model or what OS.

1. Windows? Use system restore to when it worked.
2. Norton? Other? These seem to block the internet when it expires. Fix? Uninstall.

Good luck.

As to the AV. I've found folk that set it's internet protection to maximum. (It worked!)

As to XP SP2. I find folk that don't keep current other learn why the patches and SP3 came out in a very personal way.

So you got a lease and it expired over a year ago? hmm...

I recommend posting your roommates ipconfig, and you are using a router/gateway and not just a switch or a hub to do this correct?

Are all of the lights on your router on? If so, try communicating with your router by typing 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. If not, then contact your ISP, it might be an issue on their end. But, if everything checks out on their end and you're still not receiving, it might be a Windows issue. Try WinXP Fix, make sure you take the option it gives you to backup your registry first.
