  • need some computer help

    my Dell desktop has decided to lose it's IP address and i can't connect to the internet on it. currently, i'm hooked through on my old Toshiba laptop that's working fine.

    here's the information i have to give:

    - hard wired through a DLink router
    - i've tried the ipconfig/renew and ipconfig/release...neither of those have worked
    - it's not the cable modem's problem nor is it the router


    any suggestions?

            1) is your router setup to give each device it's own static IP?
            2) does your router assign the IP?
            3) or does your machine tell it what IP it will use?
            4) have you tried rebooting the computer and router?
            5) what happens on a release/renew?
            6) make sure your DNIS settings are correct.

              You can type ipconfig in the command prompt to find out what your IP is......I don't think it can just disappear unless your network card is damaged.

                      right....in order to not have an IP something has to have happened either to the driver, hardware controller, or the harware (NIC) itself.

                        i've done that...IP address comes up as 0.0.0.0

                        Gonzo:
                        not sure if the router gives a seperate IP or not. all i know is that it works w/ the laptop & not with the desktop (also, taking out the router and just plugging the modem directly works w/ the laptop & not with the desktop)

                        i have rebooted the Dell & the router & the cable modem box many times with no change

                        renew/release does nothing

                        how do i check the DNIS settings? what should they be?

                          Maybe your ISP's DHCP server is down.
