Hi folks... Tony g6ypk from Birmingham, England.


I read that someon lost their IP address... I had to do this registration business, then could not find the post.


This fix is thus....

Bring up the command propt (Cmd:\) You normally find this inaccsseories


Type in.....ipconfig                                                    Only    

                                                                   ............Type in            ........... where the dotts are

C;\ Documents and Settings\Administrator>ipconfig (one space)  /renew


Job done.


Don't type **space** in the brackets, it just means leave one space then the forward slash then renew.


That will work . It will restore your old (working) settings.
