are you NIC (network card) drivers installed? it is installed in the computer correctly?

if so, try redoing it? uninstall it and reinstall it.

um, I dont think your NIC is listed

NIC = Network card = The thing the cat 5 plugs into.

You may have not even installed it then? If you built it yourself, it should have came with a CD. But you still want to check for updates. Tell me what it says onthe box lol, or just type it into google, followed my drivers.
Or go to their home page

lol, hope this helps!

If you are picking up an IP address from DCHP this means that your network card is working properly. However it does appear that your router is not properly picking up an internet connection.

This can be a few reasons.
No username and password entered in the router (Mainly for DSL)
MAC address conflicts (Mainly for Cable, try setting the routers MAC address to the last connected PC)
Cabling is wrong (Run your cable from your modem into your WAN / Internet port)

I think your computer was assigned an automatic private address (Basically a null address) - windows does this when DCHP has a problem. In my opinion, DHCP is really stupid - never use it unless you run a large business with a lot of computers. Ive had many problems with it not assigning an ip to a computer because it takes so long to assign one. To solve this problem, go to the router and assign an ip address to each of your computers. Once done, go to the tcp/ip properties of your computers and type the ip address you assigned to that computer.

For example, if you assigned 192.168.0.100 for computer 1 at the router, go to computer 1's tcp/ip properties and type in the same address you assigned for computer 1.

Also, dont forget to set the DNS server (for your computers) to the ip address of your router (most likely 192.168.0.1).

You must be using awful DHCP servers than, i've never had a problem
