    So what should I do? Contact my ISP? Is there anyway to configure the adapter to lease an ip address using the laptops network information?

    We could try resetting the network stack just in case it's a problem with winsock or TCP/Ip on the Ethernet side.

    The router is supposed to be leasing IP's through DHCP which seems to be working on the wireless side but not the wired.

    Unzip the file and run it, it will reset the network stack, flush the DNS, reset winsock and TCP/IP and release/renew the IP.
