Hey guys, since the clicky thing (for lack of a more technical term) on my cat5e cord broke off I decided to put on a new end.
For some reason, when I put the new cat5e cord back into the router I get the IP adress/gateway/etc on ipconfig but when I try to release/renew it says that I have no something (network?) in a permisible state for this operation. I checked my wiring and it seems to be right.
Is the setup, which was how I wrote down the initial setup after clipping the end of the working one off and it's also how it checks online @ How to Make a Category 5 /5e Patch Cable
Also in one of my attempts it was odd, I could use Skype (instant messaging) just fine but couldnt do anything else internet related like browsing.
I have no idea what could possibly be wrong, so I'd appreciate it if someone could enlighten me. Could it be that I didn't crimp hard enough?
EDIT: One more thing to ad, when I go to the network connections, it says that I am in fact connected to the network, and it's stable with that.
