Our internet connection was working fine. Unfortunately, our cable line (which controls our digital cable, telephone and internet access) was struck by lightning. It was replaced...phone and TV are working fine. I am able to use the ipconfig/release and ipconfig/renew successfully. Also, the radio console does indicate that we're connected to the wireless router w/ a good connnection. I also remember running the troubleshooting tool and it saying something about default gateway not being found ?? Any ideas or suggestions? We'd really appreciate it. (right now we're at the public library using their PCs) Thanks Cindy

Hello, While it may be that your modem is damaged, have you tried powercycling the modem/router off for 1 minute, and than back on? It sounds like your modem needs to refresh the IP address. turning it off, and on will refresh the modem, and the router will need to reconnect to the modem.

The purple text in my post are links for you to click on
Computer CPUs are designed so that the address of any piece of data in virtual memory is tracked by a single integer register. So the total amount of data the computer can keep in its working field depends on the width of these registers. A 32 bit register size enables 232 addresses (4 GB) to be referenced. Switching to a 64 bit register increases the available address space to (approximately) 16 TB. This is why 32 bit operating systems can only use up to 4 GB of RAM, and 64 bit operating systems can use much more. (I have a 32 bit system)
