Yeah, I'd look into the firewall on your computer if you have one, if you have norton 2002, black ice defender, zone alarm or anything of the like that would block/protect the tcp/ip protocol.
Your router does have a firewall, all recent ones do (within what, the past 2 years?)
So I'd definately get whatever program or instruction you need to telnet in, or whatever else you need to do to gain access to settings, and lower all the settings, at least for now
(at leas security settings.)
see if you can get online.
If not, unplug power from cable modem.
Plug cable modem power back in once desktop is back up and loaded.
start, run, winipcfg.
choose your adapter (lan card) from the adapter list.
tell me your ip at that point;.
click release/renew and tell me the new ip address.
if it does not start with 169.254..etc or 192.whatever then we're in luck.
If you still cannot get back online. make sure you have your operating system disc (or major brand system recovery cd) and go to your network control panel.
click on tcp/ip (name of your adapter on the same line as tcp/.ip)
click microsoft from the left, and tcp/ip on the right.
click ok again in network window.
insert the cd if it asks for it, click yes if it asks to restart.
then try to get back online again.
Let me know what happens at that point, I'll provide more troubleshooting at that time
