  1. I have not tried logging into the router. When I go into my Broadcom network management, there's an IP listed but I don't know the router IP. The other computer (not a laptop and not running service pack 2) is able to connect/reconnect to the router and use the internet just fine...however, it is my laptop which is having the problems. I've tried the following: ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew netsh winsock reset netsh winsock ip reset resetlog.txt and I've tried a WinsockXPFix None have helped. I'm still getting the "Cannot renew IP" error and the "Cannot connect to DNS server" error. The tricky thing is that when I go back home and plug my laptop into the router at my house, it'll work just fine.
  2. ...Yeah, that was no help. That was the FIRST thing I did. If you take a look at my post the problem is that the IP cannot be renewed NOT that the network can't be found or whatever. This error occurs when restarting the computer and when disabling/enabling the LAN.
  3. Hey everyone, I'm having a problem that I hope someone can assist me with. I have a laptop that I'm trying to connect to a friends' Linksys router. When I do so, however, I get a "Limited to No Connectivity" message after receiving another message that states that my IP address cannot be renewed. It appears as though I'm able to receive but not send. I have checked the cables---it works fine. Also, he is able to connect to the router and use the internet with no problems. We even tried connecting the cable modem directly into my laptop, to no avail. So my question is how do I reset my network settings or delete my current internet connection so that my laptop will receive an IP? (I have it set to automatically detect all the settings) This is also a wireless Linksys router, but my laptop doesn't seem to 'see' the connection and there's no option for it showing up in the properties box. Additionally, I use a router on my home connection (wired). I was able to plug back into it with no trouble and immediately use the internet. So how do I go about resetting the settings so I can use my friends' router/internet? Any help is appreciated.
  4. 'Ey Man, looks like your mom just went in and messed with your settings in word some. Those are just showing you the text boundaries. You can get rid of them by clicking Tools >> Options and then unclicking the 'Text Boundaries' box under 'Print and Web layout options'. That should get rid of those things. =)
