Hi, I am trying to give my old laptop to a friend. A few months ago I got a new one and had since unplugged the old one from the cable connecting it to the modem. I plugged the old one back in today to get everything cleared off for my friend and now the old pc won't connect to the modem. I can't repair the connection. The IP is 169 etc etc. It connected through this cable fine two months ago. How can I make sure it can connect so I dont give my friend a busted pc? I have tried to follow older posts similar to my problem, but I'm not to savvy when it comes to this stuff. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
