|Why when i fix or format someones computer for them after my ethernet cable has been plugged into their pc then they take their pc back home and now their internet isnt working? |
I don't remember this being a problem a while back but i have fixed 3 pc's in past 2 weeks, all of these people had comcast cable, i fixed one and formatted the other two pc's. i have att uverse internet which shouldn't make a difference. i have no problem getting their pc's to connect at my house.
Is the problem like the IP not getting released or something? they all had the same problem: no connectivity/limited. i had them power down modem for 3 minutes and computer, check auto detect settings in LAN settings, even run network and internet connect wizards again and finally throw in their comcast CD to reinstall comcasts software, none of this helped all 3 times.
i just want to know why and what is happening here.
I did some research today on this forum and is this what needs to bet done each time?
