K, here is the deal.
I have a Dell Demension 4600 desktop computer (windows XP home, 1024MB RAM, 80 Gb HD, 2.8 Gb Processor, Radeon 9600XT video, SOundblaster audigy2 sound). SO this computer has some power. It is protected by McAfee virus scan and firewall, sygate personal firewall (freeware version), spybot, adaware, and spyhunter 2.0. This computer is all well and good right now. Here is the problem:
I have just arrived home from college and i want to connect to my parents Hispeed comcast cabel modem. WHen i connect my parent's computer to the modem i connect to the internet just fine but when i try to hook up my computer to it i have a limited connection and cannot access the internet at all. I have tried to "repair" the connection but that fails to reestablish my IP number. I have also tried to establish a new connection but that fails as well. I am totally baffelled and dont know what to do.
The only thing i can think of is that because i had to reorganize my connection to the internet to establish a connection to my college mainframe it has done something to my connection to make it not work. HELP ME! any ideas??
