this is really pissing me off. i uninstalled my old nvidia display drivers and installed the tweakrus version. rebooted and now i cannot connect the network. i do not receive an IP.

if i connect my modem(cable) to the pc vista connects perfectly. but soon as i connect to my router no go. this was working perfectly not 10 minutes ago.

i am under the network and sharing center and i see my pc------- ! (icon) --------network(greyed out)-------- X internet (this is a map that it shows in this window)

wtf is going on. ive tried diagnosing/repairing option. no go. i have reset the NIC drivers. tried to create a new network location and that didnt work....this helped fix the problem last week. i am up in arms as to what is going on.

-edit-

ok well, all else fails, reboot. fixed my problem.

Cable modems need reboots when you switch from one thing to another beit 2 machines or a router whatever most cable modems are attached to the MAC address .

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
