I accidentally unplugged my computer.When I rebooted I had no internet connection (Cable) I have tried all the basics..... I.E. unplugged modem, checked settings (win-2000 pro). Modem works fine with lap top. All cables etc are fine. LAN says I'm connected at 100 MBPS - but has not changed at all from 100 MBPS.

whdn you move the modem from computer to computer, please be sure and unplug the power from it as well. (MAC address issue.)

are you obtaining an IP address statically, or via DHCP?

if DHCP, is it getting an IP from the router? (ipconfig)

can you ping your laptop?

can you ping the router?

I have a complete back-up of my PC. Can I just restore my internet connection files. If so - what files / directories should I look in?

Also - When I go to IE Connections all three of the choices under "Choose settings" are greyed out. I can't select anything.

in the command prompt type "ipconfig /all"

Bootsy-

Thanks...

Yes DHCP is Enabled
Yes I have an IP address

I've tried both the router and direct from the modem to the PC. I'm currently using my laptop off the router. Still have had no luck with internet connection with PC.

Thanks for helping

I tried to ping the laptop from the PC. No dice. I think the router could be blocking the ping. I believe that the router will change the IP address anyway. I can ping the PC from the laptop.

The default gateway on the problem PC is "nothing" and the laptop is 192.167.0.1.

The DNS server on the problem PC is "nothing" and the laptop is 192.167.0.1

This is not in the relm of my expertise. Thanks for helping.

ok ok ok i got it,
try this first:
1. type in the command prompt:
"inconfig /release"
once thats done, type:
"ipconfig /renew"
(this command releases the ip that the dhcp server (the router) has assigned you, guess what renew does...(retorical question hehe)

IF THAT DOESNT WORK:
we have a problem because you dont have a default gateway defined...so lets put one in why dont we....manually.
1. right click and open network connections (from control panel)
2. right click on the connection that u use to connect to the router (ie Local Area Connection 1 or whatever) and click properties
3. double click on Internet Protocol TCP/IP
4. it is now set on "obtain address automatically", we want to define these settings.
for IP address type in the address that your laptop has but 1 digit off in the last segment of numbers...
5.example: if laptop is 192.168.1.13 put in 192.168.1.14
6.for the subnet mask put in the same thing as the one on the laptop
7. for default gateway put in the same setting as your laptop.
click ok on all the windows see if that does it. To test this, try to ping the router, laotop, and www.ntfs.org
(by the way...a successful ping shows:
reply from blah..................
reply from blah..................
reply from blah..................
reply from blah.................
4 times)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
