***edited to add some things....
I tried refreshing the IP, no joy. It keeps coming up as 169.xx.xx.xx and I know that isn't right. There also is no DNS suffix or Default gateway. Here are the two messages that I have gotten while trying to figure this out.
"The operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation." -Does this mean I fried my ethernet port?
"Could not display DNS Resolver Cache." When I tried 'repairing' the network connection it said it could not clear the DNS cache and to contact whoever maintains my network, so I'm guessing its not even there?
Again, thanks for any and all help in advance. This is just driving me nuts!
