    Maybe you should post a screen shot of the ipconfig/all from this machine. I have a feeling we are dealing with more than a messed up router here.

    Looks totally normal to me. No problems there at all.

    Try running the file below which will reset everything related to the network stack and flush the DNS etc.

    Havent posted in a while but whatever that file did seemed to work, after that I was having network issues with my modem but that turned out to just be a coincidence and an issue on their end. Thanks everyone.

    Yes the reset file fixes anything to do with winsock or problems which are TCP/IP stack related, it also resets the DNS cache among other things.

    Glad it worked for you. Feel free to mark as solved.
