Internet problems again, *sigh*
« on: August 28, 2007, 05:58:03 PM »
yeah, this time its my internet connection saying it can';t contact my dhcp so the connection times out. What can I do to fix this? I tried un-plugging and re-plugging in my internet, router, turning off the computer, and restarting, then re-plugging em all back in. That didn't work, so I tried reconfiguring my router, and resetting it, THAT didn't work so I tried re-configuring my IP address, and everytime I try to do that it sais I cannot connect to my dhcp, so the connection times out. What to do?
P.s : the internet and router work for all the other computers except mine. And the network card should be fine cause when I hooked my comp up directly to my modem it worked fine. Kinda slow, but fine.

Call your ISP tech support.... ;]


We pressed on. Shortly afterwards, we arrived in a poisonous, post-apocalyptic hell - a sprawling, toxic dumping ground stretching for a mile or two. This is the final resting place for your old TV, computer or mobile phone.

How about setting the router to use assigned IPs instead, so you bypass DHCP entirely.
This is going in my sig. :)

Nah I figured it out, my network card is shot. There was a thunderstorm the other night and the power went out (didnt know that cause I was sleeping) and I guess the network card got fried.

this is why it's good to use surge protectors. :>

(or in my case, a UPS. ^.^)

Oh, my old modem had a problem like that, I eventually gave up and just bought a new one.
