Possibly as soon as I connected to the internet on my new computer, another one in the house lost the connection, along with a printer of ours... I really have no knowledge whatsoever on this topic, so I was wondering what the issue could be... has anyone ever experienced a similar problem?

make a networking scheme of your setup in MS Paint (or other program) with the devices (routers, switches,...) and connections. if you dont know what the name is of a device, google the iten name and you’ll know it

Bbox2? So you live in belgium too eh? :) 

looking at your setup, its probably a bad cable or your networking card on your pc is broken and it causes a short circuit, so try to swap the cables with another one with which you know works, next, try to use another port on your "modem" (its actually a router :)  ). if that doesnt work, then the only other viable option is that your PC has a broken network card.

i wish you the best of luck :)

Thank you both for your help! I actually solved my problem by just doing the good ol' turning it off and on ;)  My apologies for my hasted questions. But this stuff is really interesting! Is there any place online where I can learn about networking, so next time I have a clue what I'm talking about? again, thanks alot!

On a sidenote: I fucking hate Belgacom
