|I'm trying to connect a PC to a router through a wired connection with no luck. |
1. There is nothing wrong with the PC since I can connect it directly to the internet with no problems (both through DHCP and static IP)... and I have connected it to other routers in the past.
2. I assume there is nothing wrong with the router, since I can connect a second PC (also wired) to the router both through DHCP and static IP and have access to the router admin and the internet without problems.
3. Im sure there is nothing wrong with the Cat5 wire or specific router slots since I have traded these items between computers and the behavior remains the same.
So, all three parts test fine individually, but together I dont get an IP assigned when under DHCP and when setting IP manually, I dont get access to the internet and cant ping the gateway. I confirmed that the DHCp client limit is high enough and that router settings are default (ie. no restrictions of any kind, etc.)
This should be easy! But if all three parts in the equation test fine individually how could it not work when together... What on earth could I be missing?
