I was reading an article about speeding up boot times and such and followed a tutorial to assign a static IP.

After I did so (through Internet Protocol Version 4), I was getting limited access to my wifi network.

That's no good, so I restored it to obtain IP and DNS automatically.

But now it still doesn't work! I know that is the only setting I changed.

Stranger yet, I can connect to my neighbor's wifi and have internet access with no problems.

How can I fix this?



EDIT: I tried flushing DNS, releasing/renewing IP (all through ipconfig), and restarting the modem.

The computer plugged in to the modem works fine, it is just my laptop, and that is the only network i cannot connect to.

Everything is working fine again.

Strange, but I'll take it!
