|I will have to check the Device manager. The network card should be installed, because it was before I reinstalled the Windows - could it change?|
"They didn't stick" means that after I rebooted the computer, the settings were back to "obtain IP automatically" which I think is a default setting. All the boxes for the IP addresses there are blank now, nothing is entered there. I did click on the "OK", but the changes didn't apply after the reboot.
When I was setting up my Vonage account about three and a half years ago, I didn't need to change any settings in my computer. I don't remember my IP being static ever on this computer. But I will call them today after I get home and find out for sure.
Do you want to give me some homework? I will talk to Vonage and check whether the network card is installed - is there anything else I can do with my computer that is of interest to you?
