Originally i wanted to post in here about a ports problem, so I checked the rules, scanned through the forum, then tan the program your rules told me too, MiniToolBox. I've even got the results txt document saved on my desktop. After running it, my computer won't connect to my router, and thus no internet, im writing this from my phone which seems to connect just fine. Help!

Go to the command prompt on the computer and type ipconfig /release then press enter, wait for the ip address to reset then type ipconfig /renew. Are you connected and just not able to access the internet?

After you reset the ip type ping 192.168.1.1 (assuming your routers network is set to default) if you get a reply type ping 8.8.8.8

ok after the /renew, it said an error has occurred rrnewing interface Local Area Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.

My other computer is online just fine. I can't even connect to my router on my main machine via 192.168.0.1 like i I could before.

(thanks for picking this up so quick)

Navigate to the ipv4 protocol and right click and choose properties set your ip static to 192.168.0.10, 255.255.255.0 default gateway 192.168.0.1 and dns server 8.8.8.8

I tried to ping 192.168.0.1 and it now says request timed out on each of the 4 attempts, it also does this for 8.8.8.8 and any other number I type in.
