    That's the wireless adapter in the computer. The question is what is broadcasting the wireless signal to your computer. Is Eircom your ISP? Do they provide you wireless broadband service as it appears your laptop wireless connects directly to Eircom

    Please connect your ethernet cable also then run ipconfig again so this time i see the information when BOTH wired and wirless connections are there.

    re: "ISP cable"... do you actually have an incoming cable from your ISP? What does that incoming cable connect to?

    @jobeard

    I was just thinking about mossy's ipconfig data again and still confused as i recalled it said
    • Wireless IPv4 address= 86.45.58.58 (resolves to a company called Eircom)
    • Default Gateway= 159.134.155.29 (also resolves to Eircom)
    • All good enough but i also recalled DHCP Server= 192.168.1.254!!
    • So i'm thinking maybe wireless is static IP to Eircom and wired is through a router on the local LAN??
    I thought "wireless: static IP to Eircom" and "LAN: DHCP to a local router" made a good theory so i came back to double check and found the wireless adapter has DHCP Enabled =Yes!!??

    And all of which even more confusing as you already noted the subnet mask!

    Does these wired and wireless connections make any sense??? or am i missing something?
