Hi I m having trouble helping a friend get his internet back up
they have a modem and a wireless router. one computer is hard lined in and works fine, one computer goes wireless and is able to "connect" to their wirless but unable to get on line. looks like it is receiving packets but not sending. the xbox is able to connect to the wireless router.
the computer in question is also not able to connect to the internet with a hard line in.
things i have tried:
determined router and modem working fine. (xbox able to get on and other computer able to get on)
tried unplugging router and modem and replugging.
moved the computer to a differnt location (new modem and router that are known to work.)
tried ipconfig /release /renew commands
tried netsh winsock reset and netsh int ip reset reset.txt (or w/e it is) commands
Drivers are all fine,
the hard line in and the external wireless thing both do not work.
the computer obtains the ip automatically.
I'm not sure what else to try
thank you in advance
