I've been having a problem for the past week, that when I bring my laptop to work and connect to their network everything is fine. However when I return home and try connecting , it find s the wireless signal, but gives me only local access. SAme thing with a wired connection. I've checked ipconfig and I can see that its stuck with a different wireless ip 169.254... and i've tried renewing ip as well as doing the following commands:
TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or Windows 7.
Start, All Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.
In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, each followed by the Enter key:
Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog
Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
Reboot the machine..
Doesn't seem to work. I usually have to do those commands, a few restarts and fully reset the router to original state.
Is something with my home router or is it an issue on my computer. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks.
