I picked up a new lap top on Saturday night. well Norton anti virus was giving me issues with some program I installed. So I took off Norton, and other Systematic programs. I cant remember what ones.
Did a reboot, then I was not able to connect to either my neighbors WIFI(Yes he Knows), or my Router.
Well I decides a system restore would solve it.
All it did was get me on the WIFI.
A message bubble titled "Local Area Connection". Tells me,
"This connection has limited or no connectivity. you might not be able to access the Internet or some network resources. For more info, click this message."
So when I do that, it gives me the option to "REPAIR".
I tried that and when it try's to renew the IP address it stops.
Gives me the following message,
Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action could not be completed. Renewing your IP Address. See your network manager
It shows the connection to have a speed of 100Mbps. So it does see the router. Just no IP address and such
I have unplugged the Cable modem and the router also.
I am at a loss.
Thanks for the direction. Ill look for the DHCP settings. I saw them as i was looking at all the Networking stuff.
Let me try the above again.
I am not finding the DHCP setting....
Did all that still not getting IP address from router.
I'm getting a linksys all in one tomorrow. The kind with a modem, and WIFI.
Maybe that will solve this issue. I don't plan on having the laptop connected to a LAN at all. Just would be nice to Be able to if needed....
This is what I love about this site.
I bypassed the router and connected this computer in to the Modem directly. That worked.
Ill now try it through the router....
Working through the router didn't work. Must be something with that router, who knows.
