Not sure if this is really the place for it or not but I know I had great help on Bleeping Computer a long time ago.
Small work network. Bought a new tower to replace the old network shared tower. Going from Windows XP to 8.1. All other computers are Windows 7. After transferring hard drives, reformatting, and then transferring files, everything was working ok. Then I proceeded to install a fresh copy of Bitdefender Total Security onto the new Windows 8.1 computer. As soon as the install finished, there was only one other computer operating on the network and it was locked out of everything. No internet, no printers, nothing. All I got was the dreaded -
"Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration.
So began the task of resetting everything. I reset the router and modem, nothing. I reset winsock, ipconfig, and just about anything else. I then uninstalled BD and got nothing. So finally I went in and manually set my IP. I then had network access but still no internet.
Any and all help would be appreciated. Please let me know of any logs or info I can post.
