My internet doesn't work...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I am sitting in my dormroom watching some tv on hulu... Then my building gets hit with lightning and the fire alarm goes off (power still works fine, pc never even went off)... So I go and sit in the rain for 30 minutes while the fire department checks all the freaking rooms in my dorm for a fire... Then we are allowed back in - And the internet doesn't work on my PC...

Just curious if there is any reason at all internet would just stop working (from my end)... I am using my laptop and wifi right now and it works fine... But my desktop can't connect to the internet and I was just curious if it could be something on my end since I don't know why it would stop working because, as I said, the power didn't go out and I can still use wifi (which is the same damn network, just attached to a router at the end of the hall)...

So any ideas?

Thanks for answers...

Is the router down?

Oh and to add on to why I ask if this is on my end... I have been living in this dorm for two years and the internet has NEVER been down for me, ever... So that is why I am assuming the problem is on my end...

Does your laptop connect when it is plugged in with the Ethernet cable (and wifi is off)?

Are you the only one with the problem? If not, then wait it out.

I have no clue, I would assume no since like I said, the wifi for this dorm is literally just a wifi router plugged into that main switch... So if I can get wifi, that switch is putting out internet still...

Hey that actually worked lol... ***... It said DHCP wasn't enabled for my connection or something like that? Why would this occur now of all times and why have I not had to do that in the previous two years
