LAN Problems

Somehow during a tech session on Tuesday night the tech and I managed to screw up my notebook's wired LAN settings to my Linksys router. At this time I can not get an IP address on the eathernet port nor will the automatic repair function work. The LED to to the left of the jack is green and steady. The one to the right is either off or blinking orange.

The autoconfig IPv4 address is not related to my network.

If I connect it to another router, it works fine. Another computer connected to the LinkSys router works fine.

Does anyone know how to delete and remake the LAN connection?

I'd prefer not to set up a static address (it will work if I do so) as I use this computer in other places.

Oh yeah, this is Vista 64 bit.


I had a hope until you said Vista 64...
I've found networking to be far easier in Vista 64 than it ever was in XP.

But that aside, I'd first try doing a system restore back to when the network worked, and if that doesn't do it try Skipai's suggestion about the drivers.
My only suggestion is to either rollback the machine to the time said Tech ruined settings. Uninstall the wifi drivers and all settings and start from scratch.
System restore did NOT work.

It should be the 11th where you are by now. Happy Birthday

Age 55 feels no different than 54 did though.
a] Thank you.

b] That may have done it. (At least it's working now)
Still doesn't work correctly. Back to wireless for now.
