Hey guys



So my problem summarized:

- when cable at dorm is plugged in, windows troubleshooting gives "not a valid IP configuration". 

- cable at home DOES work, no problems there.

- tried reflushing through cmd, putting in a static IP, various other troubleshooting things, no effect.

- new PC so did nothing with settings.

- the cable on dorm did work on old PC, but that also took a while.

- pinging gives a result with, pinging a site does not work. 


My questions: is it possible that the ethernet requires some special settings? the dorm keeper said there is no such thing installed, he did reset the router several time. I have tried to play with various settings but without result.


Will post other info like ipconfig (/all) if necessary.
