So, I'm on my roommate's computer, which is connected to a netgear router which is connected to the internet. My other roommate also connect to the internet on this router. However, my computer likes screwing with me, and stopped working four days into having it finaly connected.

I tried absolutely everything. It's not the ethernet cable because I tested it, it's not service pack 2, it's not a dead port, I "power-cycled" the modem and unplugged the router for like an hour, uninstalled and reinstalled my network card, and I think I've narrowed down the problem.

On Matt's computer I did run>cmd then ipconfig/all to see all his network connections and bleep. Matt's is working fine as our router's IP is:

193.167.0.1

And his stuff is
IP address 193.167.0.3
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
gateway 193.167.0.1
dhcp server 193.167.0.1
DNS server 193.167.0.1

When I tried manually putting these (with the IP as 0.12) into my network settings, it won't connect to the internet, even though the network says it's connected. I think it's because when i put everything in manually, it said DHCP is not on and I think I need it for everything to work but when I told it to find IP address automatically, like it should normally do, it's assigning my computer the address

IP 169.254.242.254
gateway 255.255.255.0

Is there some way to fix this?

Now please Download LSPFix from:

LSP-Fix

Disconnect from the Internet and close all Internet Explorer Windows. Run then program and click on the fix button. Then set your computer to use dhcp to get an ip and reboot. See if it works now

that ip that was asigned to your computer is a defult ip that windoes will asign it when there is no dhcp avilable try giving it your own this maybe what you put in before but here is what it should be

IP address 193.167.0.x replace x with a ip not used on the network
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
gateway 193.167.0.1
DNS server 193.167.0.1

Im confused..was that the error you received? Usually when windows cant find a DHCP server it assignes a 169.x.x.x address. Looks like you got one from a router on your network? Do you have a router like a linksys or something else?
