Um, im not sure what a Cat5 is, but is that the kind of wire im using to connect the computer to the Cable Modem and Router? (if so then yes, thats what i think the box said when i bought the cables) I never had a problem with internet on both computers a few months ago.
Yes, ive tried turning off everything, both computers, the cable modem, and the router (and reseting the router, holding the button for about 30 seconds). After that, the computer just obtains a new IP address that doesnt work and the same problem continues.
Yes, ive tried ipconf /all, /release, /renew. When i tried renew, a message came up saying "An errror occured while renewing interface Local Area Internet Connection : An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket.
Im guessing that means "Renewing the IP failed"
Oh and i almost forgot, the first few numbers of the IP were 169.254.18 (subnet mask: 255.255.0.0 and no default gateway) I was told that it was suppost to be 192.168.1.xxx (xxx being any number greater than 100). Everytime the address was renewed, it didn't have any of those numbers.
When i tried manually entering the IP 192.168.1.xxx ("), i then repaired the connection and it said there was no problem, buh when i'd open my internet explorer, it either wouldnt open because i was offline, or would prompt windows asking me to connect/stay offline or saying there wasnt a connection. (opening my internet explorer is starting to become a problem too)
When i'd test the IP('s) in "Broadcom Advanced Control Suite", they'd "fail". and i am not able to "refresh".
Maybe the problem lies within Winsock. Can you please explain what exactly that is for? (i tried fixing Winsock with one of your programs, buh there was a problem, and i think i remember the last window saying "error 55" or something like that (?)
Sorry for taking so long to respond back, i was other in the other room trying everything again. Thanks
