  1. i have recently started having problems with my dsl modem. My computer wont find the connection so i dont have internet. its hooked up through a router and the other 2 computers on the router work fine.

    ive tried changing the cords, going wireless, and connecting straight to the modem but nothing works

    when i hit "repair connection" it says windows couldnt renew your ip adress.

    also i have windows XP...and my card is a marvel yukon gigabite networking controller if that helps

    o and i know its compatible with my system b/c its been working for about a year now

    I guess you've tried shutting off the modem, waiting a few minutes and turning it back on?
