Hello all,

Forgive if this is a silly question, however I have lost my wireless connection. I don't know if this helps, however; when I went into the "status" info for my wireless connection, it indicates that I have an invalid IP address. How do I get the computer with the wireless adapter to recognize/identify the IP address?

Sorry if this is confusing.........hopefully somebody can help!

I'd first suggest that you open a command prompt (Start...Run...type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter).
Then, in the black window that appears type the following (press Enter after each one)



Press Enter after each one (and note any error messages that may pop up). There's a space before each of the / marks also.

And, I'm going to move this over to the Networking forum where the networking experts hang out.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
