  1. Hi all

    I have a default gateway and IP address issue that I have tried to solve but can't.

    Isp is plusnet, running windows xp sp 2, using a wireless connection on a compaq laptop thats less than a year old.

    All of a sudden my connection went, when i tried to get on again it wouldnt let me and said that there was no connection, went into my daughters room and hers is fine. I had a look at the connections and it wasn't having a bar of it so I tried an ethernet connection...nothing. I had a bit of a play with things putting in ip address, ping back etc ... nothing is working. Had enough now and ready to chuck it out the window.

    TIA

    Post ipconfig /all and tell us more about the hardware. Does the ethernet connection light up on either end?
