Re: Network adaptor problem
Go to Start > Run. Type "cmd" and press enter
Type "ipconfig/all" and press enter.
Copy down your IP address, DNS Server, and Default Gateway (all looks like 192.168.1.254)
Go to your Network Adapters page, right click on the 'Local Area Network' and hit 'Properties'
There's a line that says "IPv4 TCP/IP Internet Connection" (or something close to that). Select that and click 'Properties'.
Hit the 'configure this connection manually' button at the top, then key in the values you copied down earlier. Subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0
Hit ok on all the windows, and try connecting!
