      Thanks
      Did you have the issue before performing this step?

      I used xp64 for a day and a gave up, its highly likely to be the cause.

        As above, you have tried it all with automatically assigning the IP/DNS etc. ye? It's not just a simple mistype somewhere along the line?

          ok, well it never worked even without the dhcp list. other computers do have internet, it's just this one. i am trying to isolate the problem, i think it must be something with the computer.

            I would say if you can't ping, and you've double checked the ip addresses, try swapping the cable and/or port on the switch/router.

                Random thought and probably pointless, but can you :

                > ping 127.0.0.1

                that should at least make sure the XP64 ip stack is working

                  Ok, I am using a powerline ethernent thingy. It definately works because I switch it between my computer and my xbox. It gives me great 5 bar internet on my xbox, so there is no reason why it shouldn't work for my computer? Also Spaceboy, I will try pinging my self, however I think I have effectively already done it, this is because I accidently set my static IP to ...0.1, and my DNS to ...0.1, and obviously I got 4 replies of my packets.

                    Any security settings on the powerline adapters ?
                    If the adapters have more than 1 ethernet port, you could try plugging in the xbox and the PC, and then ping the xbox ip address ?

                      Nope, only one port, no security. It is this one btw: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Max-Value-Po...5421776&sr=1-5

                      It works fine, so I don't think it is a problem with that.

                        I have tried it with ubuntu and I still don't get internet. Does ubuntu need drivers, is that where I am going wrong?

                          if you can't ping anything on your local network then it's either a driver or hardware problem.

                          if it's a driver problem then I'd be surprised if you could even set an ip on the interface.

                            No - ubuntu shouldn't need drivers. As you've got ethernet working on the xbox, I doubt this, but do you need special drivers because you're using power line, not straight ethernet.

                            If you don't need power line drivers, then I'd suggest it's the network card on that pc, as xbox works, but ubuntu on that machine doesn't.
