Hi,
I recently moved and after initially having no trouble, I developed problem connecting to internet. I was able to connect to Linksys wireless but not to internet. I searched the forums & cloned MAC address (?) & it's working now, but for how long? I did notice that the Connection-specific DNS suffix is my old internet provider. I can't figure out how to change it.

Here's pings & ipconfig /all log
First not working:

The connection suffix is coming from the router, you can reset it to defaults and reconfigure if you want to change it.

Looks like the connection is working, I truly see no reason to do anything here.
