Ok this is a seriously messed up problem. I know how to fix it though, just annoying. This just started happening recently, as in today. I found that I restarted my computer and I couldn't log onto ANYTHING. So I did ipconfig and found that my IP had changed to some default one. I can't remember exactly what it was, but something like 188.8.131.52 So after my last network problem I did (this is for XP) "ipconfig /release", then "ipconfig /renew" This took care of the problem and reassigned me to the campus, but it is just a pain in the to get it working properly. There are probably 50 comptuers in the house and every single one has to do this. It gets annoying. I am curious if anyone can shed some light on this. Is it a campus problem? A problem with our hub in the house (we have 1 downstairs in basement-8port, 2 on 1st floor-both 8ports, and one upstairs-24 ports)? Each room most likely has a hub of their own to share connection between the 2 roommates computers. I hope this is enough detail. I have been asked to fix about 10 computers so they can get on the internet and it is pissing me off, easy but annoying.
