Solved I had ATT and now have cable that does not require password

June 21, 2012 at 07:27:00
Specs: Windows Vista
Remove PPPoe settings on Vista. I uninstalled the att software but the pppoe settings remain and my computer says my network is unidentified and will only allow local connection. My XP computer had no problem making the change but the Vista one keeps saying it is an unidentified network. I have tried turning everything off and then restarting the cable and then the computer but it does not work. I have a wireless adapter and can connect the Vista machine to the network with no problem but need a wired connection for games I play so I need to fix the wired problem. I am sure the settings the ATT software changed is the problem but I don't know how to get into the system to fix the problem. There is no router involved. The router is built into the cable modem.

I ran ccleaner on my computer to remove any vestiges of the att programs and I went to the properties of the network adapter and took out the proxy information, told it not to use a proxy. I removed the wireless adapter from the computer. I went into the network name and changed it to the name of my current network. Then I restarted the computer. I am getting better speed than when I first got it to connect wired so maybe those things needed to be done. I plugged the wireless back in but I disabled it because Vista wants to use wireless if it is available over wired. Kind of a weird thing to do, I think. I believe it is okay now and want to thank you for your help and I wanted to tell you what I did.

Your ipconfig shows a wired nic with the correct ip information.

Do a nslookup yahoo.com
and post the results so we can see if you have name resolution.
