A few days ago we had a storm, this knocked out my router/modem/one of my Ethernet cards.
Well, I invested in some new ones and now I have a problem.
Both computers are using XP.
I plug in the cords to both of my comps, and then I reset my modem and router.
The first computer I turn on the internet works fine for, the second computer I turn on has "Limited connection or no connection"
This is confusing to me as it always worked fine beforehand.
I think the problem is something to do with both computers requesting the same Gateway, (as if I type in ipconfig, the default gateway is blank) and the second computer that requests it doesn't get the gateway, and it doesnt try for a few one.
I installed the patch by microsoft...no help there.
I think I just need a way to make it so one computer uses one gateway, and the other uses a different gateway. I don't know how to change it so it doesn't automatically choose one. I wan't to be able to set it up manually.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am not a computer illiterate, I will understand anything you tell me to do, just a little push in the right direction and I am sure I can do it.
