If you are going through a router, try shutting it down (unplug if necessary) for 15 seconds or so and your PC, and then power them back on.

Give the router time to re-connect to your ISP, and then try again.


Just a suggestion, please let us know if it makes any difference.

If for some reason your DCHP server got screwed up, you will need to make your IP and DNS addresses static. Please contact your ISP for the correct values to put there.

Go to control panel, and click on Network Connections. Then right click the symbol for your internet connection, and go to properties. Scroll down to TCP/IP, and press properties. Then tell it to use the numbers you have and enter the numbers.

Hmm, that subnet mask and gateway are the same as mine.\

Try 205.171.3.65 as the primary DNS, and 205.171.2.65 as the alt.

According to this page your DNS should be assigned automatically: http://www.cogeco.com/en/nt4ras_o.htm

You can also google for DNS servers, there's a ton of them out there that you can use.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Copy the settings from your brother's computer (except for the actual IP address of the computer) - or use the Network Setup Wizard to make a copy of the settings on your brother's computer and then transfer it to your computer.

Since you don't want to call cogeco, could it be that there are restrictions that they place on the number of computers that can be hooked up to their network? Or, could it be that they don't recognize the address of your computer and won't let it on the network?
