Whenever i restart my computer i receive a DHCP thing showing it trying to locate a DHCP. I set up a network throughout my house. I'm not sure if my firewall has anything to do with it but i can't figure out why im getting hte message and how to fix/stop it.
its a Linksys Wireless-G 2.4 ghz router, all the other computers are working fine, my computer is the only one directly connected to the internet through the router the others are on wireless pieces. i have tried a release renew, i don't know how. and i don't know how to repair winsock. Anything u can tell me would help. Thanks
have you played with any of the settings in the router, like the dhcp lease range? Have you tried updating the firmware on the router? What ethernet card do you have in the computer (inegrated) or pci? or have you recently upgraded the drivers on your pc's ethernet card?
Its integrated ethernet. I have no clue how to adjust my router settings although im sure that would probably solve the problem. I haven't updated anythign for my router just use whats ever on the cd lol. lemme know what i should do.
to view your router's settings, go to 126.96.36.199 in your url bar. The username is Admin, there should be no default password. there you can go to wireless -> status -> view dhcp lease. There you can see if you can find your computer, or you can type ipconfig/all from the command prompt to view your information. If you can get to 192.168.1.1 then you might want to check the ethernet cable, or card.
