No wireless/wired net access

by vector03 / June 23, 2010 1:57 AM PDT

I've been using wireless internet for months with my new computer which has Windows 7 64-bit. Today I disabled the wireless security for a bit, then tried to enable it, now I can't connect to anything. The problems are: 'The DNS server isn't responding' and 'Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP config'. My wireless icon keeps switching between a yellow exclamation point icon and a circular blue loading icon. It says it's connected but I cannot browse the net, I can access my router information though. My router/modem are definitely on and connected. I've done many power cycles on those and my computer. My modem is Comcast and my router is a Netgear WPN824 V2. The router has the most recent firmware.

Here is my ipconfig data:

Please help, I need the internet on my computer to be able to do work. Thanks in advance.

I figured out a bit more about my problem. It almost has to be a problem stemming from a large electrical storm that happened yesterday, which I'm certain damaged my previous router, which I've since replaced with a new WNR2000. The old router and surge protector is gone, but I still cannot connect via wired or wireless. Perhaps this sheds more light on the problem.

Just one idea.

For comcast you must power down the cable modem, move the ethernet to the PC or router then power up the cable modem then the router or PCs.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
