If static works then you can just use that ip from now on two. Unchecking this box turned out to be the only way I could get "Status: Limited or no connectivity" I've an audit trail of everything I've so far tried during the past 3 weeks. I dont have a landline at home, so calling from a mobile is going to be expensive. If anyone can please help me, I would really appreciate it. Due to what is best described as a 'clogged up system' I've reinstalled Windows. I didnt have a problem before at my old house, but that was with a netgear router still with virgin media but now I have a d-link router.
