    how are you showing the wrong IP address? the IP is unique to your computer, if you have the wrong IP, then you will not be able to access the net. you are probably configured to use DHCP which would allow the phone company to assign you an IP.

    it looks like you are not configured for DHCP. That is your correct IP address...

    Since your using DSL I am assuming that you have to use a form of PPOE not DHCP. If you can access the net on your box then they just issued you a new ip addy. If you cant get to the net on that box, what IP addy do you have? All Microsoft products issue a private IP if no IP is assigned by your ISP or other device aka router, switch.

    PPPOE uses DHCP

    Ok....Have not set up a DSL line before. So I had no idea how the pppoe dialer program worked. So the program zaps some info to the ISP, the ISP zaps back info which includes IP addy, then DHCP gets updated with ip info..

    Im guessing since you have the wrong IP addy then its the one that MS products will assign when no ip addy is assigned to it.

    What is your IP addy.
    only need 1st 2 octets.
    ex. 255.255

    I had the same issues on my cable modem, and still occasionaly have it happen. Normall I use the release all switch and then disconnect the power from my hub, Unplug from the hub, and then reboot. Usually it'll then kick in an take the IP address I've setup. If not usually shutting down and booting up another system on the LAN will kick the router into accepting it. Irnically this did not occur until fater I did a security update from MS. Hope any of this info helps.
