I share an Internet connection with my desktop, which works fine. All my cables are connected correctly, but on my laptop, I get the message "A network cable is unplugged." I've tried unplugging, rebooting, resetting the IP address, repairing...nothing has worked.
My router is a D-Link and about 6 months old.
Does the IP address on my laptop have to be the same as on my desktop? I've manually changed it, but that change doesn't seem to be reflected; ie, it keeps showing the original, unchanged IP address.
I'd appreciate any help.
