I have a simple, but frustrating problem. I have a laptop that I'm trying to connect to a cable modem(wired). It is telling me that I am connected at 100.0mbs although I am not receiving any packets, although I send 600-700 packets in about 5 minutes. My wireless works just fine. I know I'm overlooking a minor detail or setting. I searched around the various threads on this subject and decided to try pinging various addresses and this is what I got.

Packets Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost 0(0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms

C:\ping www.google.com
Ping request could not find host www.google.com. please check the name and try again.

Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)

by pinging, you're testing your nic(network interface card), and by the results it looks like it's working properly. You should reset your modem, because it seems the DNS server isn't working, if that doesn't help, call your ISP.
