Please bear with me as I try and explain - I am an idiot when it comes to this

I have a home network with two computers. The main computer is working fine, internet connection etc. Recently, I noticed that when on the second computer I was getting the message that there was limited or no connection, but if I just waited a bit, I could get on to the internet. Last night however, I could not get onto the internet. When I checked my network connection, I saw that my IP address was 0.0.0.0.
This has happened in the past, and for the life of me I can't remember what I did to fix it.

Can you let me know what information you need from me in order to help me?

Thanks

Well, I unplugged my router this morning and this seemed to do the trick!

Still not sure what happened in the first place, but I do have an IP address now.

Thanks anyway.
