Hi guys

So having some big issues with my network and shiz, basically I cannot connect to it, I have tried the basics, restarting router, system restore stuff like that but am at a limb :(

Have looked online at tech support forums to see but none that ive seen work for me.

It also just seems to be my computer as other devices in my house are working fine.

Any experts who can help me out here please?

Alright there is your problem, your wi-fi adapter is not compatible with your router, either you will have to be one of those usb dongle adapters or use your ethernet cable.

This is what you will need to use wi-fi:

Hmm...thats the only thing I can think off because I have the same problem and my wi-fi adapter in my laptop was not compatible with my router, so I had to buy on of those usb adapters that acted as a converter of sorts, or use my ethernet cable...but you say your wi-fi has worked before, have you tried updating drivers and whatnot/

Generic IT response: Have you tried restarting the computer?

It may sound annoying, but the reason us IT people tell you that is because restarting helps Windows reconfigure things on startup

If that doesn't work:

Go to command prompt and type the following:

ipconfig /release

then

ipconfig /renew

This will release all setup IP configurations, and then renew them. This should fix the issue

Tried restarting several times but nothing.

did the ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew but that did not work, it came up with the following...

ipconfig /release

windows IP configuration

an error occurred while releasing interface local area connection : an address has not yet been associated with the network endpoint.

ipconfig /renew

windows IP configuration

an error occurred while releasing interface local area connection : unable to contact your DHCP server. request has timed out.

I had this problem too :D All I did was give them a call, and it ended up that the equipment was out dated. They just came in gave me new equipment and everything worked fine.

Are you using a NIC or the default Ethernet port on your router? It sounds like it is malfunctioning.

Either that, or the ethernet cable is faulty. Aside from breaking out a multimeter and testing each wire in the cable individually, your next step would be to try a different cable.

If that fails, you would probably benefit from buying a new NIC.

Edit: try this software solution I found on another forum.

Start, All Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, each followed by the Enter key:

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

A general search for any malware or viruses wouldn't hurt either.

You need to remove your CPU, hit it with a hammer, then replace with a potato.
