My girlfriend cannot access the internet at all. Her IP address is 192.168.x.x but she is not using a router at all, she is directly connected to her cable modem. I tried to release and renew the IP through ipconfig but it didn't change it. ???
If it is directly connected to the modem it should not have a 192.168.x.x address, unless the modem is a modem/router combination. Go to control panel > network connections and right click on the connetion and chose proporties. Select Internet Protocal (TCP/IP) then click proporties. Both sections should have automatic configuration enabled.
If the are set to enabled, go to the command prompt (start > run > type cmd) then type ipconfig /all, then right click hit select all then hit enter, and paste the results here.
