Hey everyone, i know this has been written about a lot on here but no other post seems to help me.

I was struggling to connect to my wireless internet using automatic DHCP so decided to connect using manual allocation. This connected me to my wireless but for some reason i cannot ping my default gateway. Here is some info for people to look over:

ipconfig -a
