Best of my knowledge an ip address doesn't get deleted…; more likely either changed, or you don't have an ip address assigned to the computer in question at the time)… And an ip address is assigned either of two ways - automatically or manually…

How is your system set up to get an ip address for your computer? Are you using DHCP - or manually assigning ip addresses?

Have you considered disabling the use of proxy server - if only to get onto the www - presuming you can't at present?

Details how to set up/use a proxy; and thus you can see how to disable it…?

Also - very basic…:

If you don't have your current ip address/details etc. for your computer…

To find the current ip address for your computer - use the ipconfig command - or the more complete/detailed ipconfig /all (note the space between ipconfig and /all).

This is run via the command (cmd) prompt; you open the "run" box and type cmd (or cmd.exe) and then press return/enter. The black "dos" style box which opens up is where you type the ipconfig command…

may help understand the little bit just above more clearly?

It has an IP address but whenever the proxy is enabled I get the HTTP ERROR 401 & a window pop up asks for username & password saying: Authentication Required Server, server says NETGEAR WNR1000V.3

I have to go to Settings > Advanced Settings > Proxy Settings > and then disable the proxy to use the internet. So im guessing its something to do with my proxy server. I don't know how or why this problem started but for some reason it is not recognizing my proxy. Any suggestions?

Maybe usful reminders about seting prox connction(s); even though it least one of them is based on a specific poduct...

Whose proxy server are you using?

(Tip… using an iPad to compose for forums/fora isn't always the best tool to use… So easy to mis-type and and miss them too when proofing one's post).

I was gonna ask if you intentionally had one set up. Often times if you haven't there is something malicious at work.

I know we had an IP address already, but when I received a notice from my ISP that someone was using peer 2 peer downloading from my IP, I looked into proxy servers & now idk what is wrong. I have Windows 7, Google Chrome
