I recently moved into another house for college. I have cable internet installed however i can not use it.
My computer is plugged into a D-Link router that is conencted to the modem. My computer is not recognized on the network and cannot access anything.
When i run ipconfig my IP shows up as a 169.xx.xx number. I have been told that this means that it is not communicating with my router in the DHCP format.
I have tried to do an ipconfig /release but that doesnt do anything. It just shows what would happen if I typed ipconfig.
ipconfig /renew also does not work. it says it cannot contact the DHCP server.
My computer will work if I plug it directly into the router so the cable is fine. I also have another computer running the same way, but it works fine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated since classes start next week,
Thanks a lot,
