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:
And his stuff is
IP address 22.214.171.124
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
dhcp server 126.96.36.199
DNS server 188.8.131.52
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
Is there some way to fix this?
