Default No internet with vista

A few days ago, i installed vista, and the internet was fine, until yesterday, when it just stopped working.

i found out that my linksys uses broadcom chips, so it displayed as broadcom, not linksys

The name of your ISP and country of residence.
Comcast, USA

Make/model of the broadband modem. If dial-up, please specify.

Make/model of the router (if any).
Belkin 65D8231

Connection type, wired, wireless.

If wireless, encryption used, (WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc.)

Make/model of network card or wireless adapter.
Linksys WMP54GS

Make/model of your computer (motherboard if home-built).
Dell Dimensions 8400

Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP2.
Windows Vista Ultimate

When i click to connect on my network, it says connected, but limited connectivity. I dont have any ip address or anything. I dont know why but when i first installed, vista, the internet was fine, and just now it stopped working. I updated drivers for both the network card, and the router.

ipconfig/all gives me this:

When i diagnose my connection, it says this: Internet Protocol Bindings are incorrect, and then it says to check ipv6 and ipv4

also, i cant do ipconfig/renew, it says the adapter doesnt have permission or something

I have a Dimension 8400 as well. I think it is just your wireless setting that are causing the issue. Cause my net is fine with Vista and the same machine.

Thats happened to me a few times...the whole limited connectivity thing. Turns out the router company released a patch that messed up about 3/4 of RR customers. I had to reset the router. Try that, it might work.
