i keep getting an icon at the bottom right hand corner that says, acquiring network ip. whenever i try to repair or type ipconfig /release/renew or whatever, it doesn't let me and it will give me another message saying renewing ip failed..please help
This is most likely the cause of a unexistant or malfunctioning DHCP server. If you have no idea what it is and don't have a router, you most likely do not have one therefore you will be needing to set manual IPs in accordance with each other (same class, same subnet,...).
If you have a router, you can still do that, just make sur the IP class and subnet are the same as your router.
im running a d-link router using roger's.. there are 2 computers connected to the router, one seems to be fine but the other one seems to have this problem once in a while.. i formatted my computer and i still have this problem as well
do an ipconfig /all on the computer thats working and on the one that is working. Copy and paste the outputs here for us to see, be sure to label whats what.
Also check the router and make sure it has enough ip range for both computers. Dont know why it would have changed but best to check.
