|But it is just on the one PC and must be a PC problem. Ethernet points in the rest of the house are all fine, so it's not the router. I have changed the DSL cable into the back of the PC and the lights all go on, but still no internet access. |
When I run the ipconfig command, it shows an IP address and a subnet mask series of figures, but there is nothing next to default gateway.
I am currently using a wireless adapter on the one USB port that still works (the others haven't worked for ages, could the two issues be connected?) and this shows sets of figures for all three in ipconfig.
However, it's a big house, the wireless router is three floors down and I am currently piggybacking of next door's unsecured network. Not ideal!
