PROBLEM SOLVED! OMG! YES!
So happy! I was able to solve my problem all by myself!
When I first came to this site, my computer wouldn't connect with my network, like at all. Then with some help from Rawe
, I set the configuration manually and could get back on the internet! No file or printer sharing though....
I have Comcast, and on their website they have this cool download called Desktop Doctor, it remembers your internet connection settings, so when your interent is down, you click on that and it restores the settings to when it was working fine! So with the security of knowing I can easily reset everything, I went into LAN Connection proprties and started messing around, nothing was working...
But then I just clicked get IP address manually and IT WORKED!
So now, I can connect to the internet, see shared files, and print from the network printer! YAY!
