Hey there all you good folks at DaniWeb !!!!!!!
Please hang in there with me because I don't know all the correct terminology for this stuff but I will try my best to explain my problem.
I have a 5mbps Ethernet cable that comes in my house. I have that plugged into a hub, so I can use my computer and also work on other computers. The hub has places to run 5 computers at once.
Usualy I can connect a computer with an ethernet cable, hit "REPAIR" and the computer automatically changes the computer that I'm working on to connect to the internet.
Right now I have a HP Pavilion a 1250n. For some reason, it has 2 different places to be able to hook a Ethernet cable. I have plugged my Ethernet cable into both places, at different times, hit repair and yet this computer will not connect to the internet. I get the mesaage.....Windows could not finish repairing the p[roblem because the following action cannot be completed:
Renewing your IP address. For assistance, contact the person who manages your network.
I'm trying to get this computer hooked up to the internet so I can update my AVG Antivirus, Spybot Search and Destroy, etc...
I'm pretty lost when it comes to LAN and related subjects.
Any help will be greatly appreciated !!!!
