    make sure that u have a valid ip address and if u still dont call the service provider make sure that everything is ok from their side and than do a reinstall for ur n/w drivers before installing make sure that u uninstall it
    and the 1st time u do the ipconfig and u get a valip ip address than follow these steps
    1)in the command prompt window type ipconfig /release
    2)than ipconfig /renew
    3)than ipconfig /flushdns
    after these steps try pinging any of the websites google would be a preffered option it the pinging to the website fails try pinging to the ip address of the website
    after trying these steps tell me the outcome

I just wanted to let you know what I did to fix my "media disconnected" problem...I read through the "media disconnected with a wireless card" forum on Lobby, and i tried everything...then I noticed on my lap top that every time i went to the internet it would say "Server not found" I asked my aunt about it, who is a computer teh, an she said something might be wrong with my ip address...the computer is not finding the ip address. I tried repairing by:

control panel
network connections
local area connection/wireless network connection
suport tab

This works for some people, but not for me...while in the local area conection i noticed that under general my activity was being sent, but not recieved. so this is what i did

control panel
network connections
wireless network/local area connection
(mine was in wireles network, but if you are not wireless, do the same thing in local area connection)
under General tab look under the "this connection uses the following items"
Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
Click Properties
Click "obtain an IP adress automatically"
also make sure the "obtain a DNS automatically" is checked

This worked right away...i could see under activity on the connection status that the activity was being sent and being recieved. I did this on accident trying to follow the advice on the other forum, so i thought I would share it...i know how frustating it is and i am so excited that this worked...
