I've been at college for the past couple months and my internet worked great (better than at home). Today I tried to set up my internet as I have to re-authorize my Windows or something. The problem is I can not get it connected properly. The wires are fine, my dad tested them and the internet itself on his laptop in the same room where my computer is. So we know the cords and the router and everything are working fine. When I plug in my cord, it recognizes the internet and proceeds to send out packets constantly at a rate of 10MB/s but receiving nothing.
So my internet is totally one sided. I uninstalled and reinstalled my drivers, restarted my computer after fooling with different configurations multiple times and found that my IP starts with 167.XXX.XXX.XXX. I know from what I've read that this means there is a problem. Another section of the problem is that if I manually put in 192.168.0.50 as my IP, it will connect and start sending packets. If I say automatically find the IP, it will say Partial or No Connection.
What is going on with my internet now that I'm home? I even deleted my school domain log-in hoping that it would work, but to no avail. Please help!
